The dollar surged again against the German mark and all the European currency on sustained and deepening concern about the implications of the Soviet foreign minister's resignation, but eased against Japan's yen.

Currency analysts said the announcement Thursday by Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard Shevardnadze that he was resigning cast a heavy pall over the formerly optimistic scenario for Germany and Europe, East and West.Consequently, investors who earlier had hitched their financial wagons to the German mark fled to the dollar, which suddenly regained its traditional status as a haven amid political uncertainty, as well as to the yen.
