About Geneva From Our Editorial Research Bnrcmu Big Four summit conference at Geneva opens Monday just 10 years and one day after the last previous meet ing of heads of state from both sides of the Iron Curtain The future of Germany was at stake at Potsdam in 1945 as it is today Only then the problem was a policy for occupation of Ger many and now the problem is German reunification and Germanys role as a world power What has happened since 1945 Sir Winston Churchill totted up the score eight years after Potsdam in Triumph and Tragedy The sum mary still holds except that Austria has reemerged now as a neu tral state As Churchill saw it The Russian occupation line in Europe runs from Lubeck to Linz Czechoslovakia has been engulfed The Baltic States Poland Rumania and Bulgaria have been reduced to satellite States under totalitarian Communist rule Austria is denied all settlement Yugo slavia has broken loose Greece alone is saved Our armies are gone and it will be a long time before even 60 divisions can be once again assembled opposite Russian forces which in armor and manpower are in overwhelming strength Only the atomic bomb stretches its sinister shield before Replaced by Attlee Churchill was replaced by Clement R Attlee as Prime Minister and Britains representative at Potsdam on the Laborites over whelming victory in British elections Laborites had declared that Attlee as a Socialist would be able to negotiate with more ease with the Russians Churchill now expresses deep regret at his removal from the scene at the time when I still had much influence and And the Laborites seem to have come round to his way of thinking At any rate they recently proposed in Commons that he accompany Prime Minister Anthony Eden to Geneva Churchill had wanted the Potsdam meeting to be held a month earlier Also he had wanted the United States to wait until after Pots dam to pull its forces from the combat lines to the zone prescribed at Yalta Otherwise after giving up the whole centre and heart of the centre and keystone of and Britain would go to Potsdam with nothing to bargain President Truman rejected Churchills proposal Nevertheless Churchill understood Trumans position and he says now Those who are only wise after the event should hold their Cordial Relations Churchill had been eager to meet this potentate sicl with whom my cordial relations in spite of differences had been established by He found Truman a man of exceptional char acter and ability with an outlook exactly along the lines of Anglo American relations as they had developed simple and direct methods of speech and a great deal of selfconfidence and Anthony Eden now Britains top representative at Geneva was Churchills right bower at Potsdam He was replaced after the elec tions by the late Ernest Bevin Bevin and Attlee accepted the post ponement of the final determination of Polands borders which Churchill and Eden had opposed The Polish borders are still a major area of dispute for Geneva Of the primary figures at Geneva only Eden and Molotov were present at Potsdam both as foreign ministers The Secretary of State was James F Byrnes in his party was Charles E Bohlen who now as Ambassador to Moscow is coaching the delega tion at Geneva France with Gen Charles de Gaulle as president of its provisional government was not represented at Potsdam A line observer in nearby

o you I say to all the world if he words that he expressed are truly reflective of the hearts and minds of the men in the Kremlin then there will be no trouble Between the Russian delegation and our
