scene would agree is one of admiration IN APPEARANCE Herter is aman who stands out he looks not only distin guished but distinctive In part this is due to his height which he states precisely as 6 feet 5 inches He tallest man in if he is not the man who is 6foot6 hasnt been out of doors all week His appearance is also distinc and indeed in a heart warming sort of way because of his lameness

a nationwide strike Reuthcr said As far as Im concerned its another demonstration of t h e fact that Hoffa thinks with his German discontent w it the British role anc West Germans is up to the Soviets to act first be cause they started the trouble The Americans in the middle have feared a Western initiative might be interpreted by the So viets as readiness to make a concession Lloyd has asked Herter to reconsider this view 1 WHAT PRICE would the Soviets be willing to pay to United States to an EastWest summit conference Soviet Foreign Minister An drei Gromyko in the British view is trying to conceal this price The British think Gromykos aim is to bring the EastWest talks oh ending nuclear weapon tests under the same roof as the main conference on Berlin and Germany If the West were to agree then the Soviets might make it conces sions on other set up top level talks 3 What is the United States minimum price for going along to the summit THE BRITISH think Herter wants an itemized statement of what the Soviets consider to be the main difference betwden East and West Su9h a state ment then could be represented as the work of the conference because it would enable the West to deduce the issues which are negotiable One flaw in the British assess ment seems selfevident President Eisenhower h a s made plain that be would not meet Soviet Premier Khrush chev while the pistolof Berlin is held at the Wests head The French and West Germans sup port this stand The Soviet Union would at least have to unload that pistol in order to insure the summit That anyway seems to be the thinking of Britains allies And Herter may already have told Lloyd so Herter is resigned to the pros pect of more filibustering by Gromyko but that he believes the Russian will be ready to be gin
