who will meet with Eisenhower here next week is understood to favor a time limit of about two years on the pro posed moratorium on small un derground tests Eisenhower administrat i o n leaders in contrast to the British view have so far decid edonly that the United States should not flatly reject the Sovi et plan it is understood A MAJOR difficulty facing the President in his forthcoming talks with Macmillan is that some of his chief advisers from the Defense Department and the Atomic Energy Commission feel another series of underground nuclear weapons tests must be held some time in the relatively near future perhaps late this Tall Agreement on any mora torium would bar such tests Macmillan is due in Washing ton late Saturday for probably two days of talks with Eisen hower beginning Monday The Soviet proposition was put before Britain and the United States in threepower talks at Geneva These talks have been under way since the fall of 1958 Until February they were aimed at producing a treaty which would prohibit all testing of atomic weapons with a system of inspection to pre vent cheating IN FEBRUARY Eisenhower called for a new approach on the agreement on a ban limited to those tests large enough to be detected easily Scientists had advised that small under ground explosions would be dif ficult for an inspection system to detect and that cheating on them would be possible The Russians first denounced the Presidents limited treaty proposal but then on Saturday switched their position They said they wouid be willing to negotiate a limited treaty pro vided that the three powers would at the same time agree to an informal moratorium oa the small underground tests Their proposition is very sim ilar to the line taken by the British Ike in better

facing his 70th birthday in October soon will become the oldest president in the nations history By all medical odds the President long since should have put on his slippers re tired to a rocking
