Worldwide economic cooperation

I want to commend you for the excellent editorial "Against the Grain," Oct. 28. We certainly do hope that some kind of "let's get the job done " feeling will emerge from the European Community of the GATT talks.

It is hard, however, at the present time to see how the EC can shake its indecisiveness over difficult issues and make responsible (although occasionally unpopular) decisions. With the world economic situation being what it is, failure of the EC to make the Uruguay Round work is inexcusable. Considering that economic cooperation around the world is at a low point, coming to grips with and resolving the Uruguay Round for the benefit of all would be a spectacular development. Harry L.
