Emphasizing that there has been no change in American for- eign policy, Byrnes said he would make a broadcast report on the conference to the American na- tion Friday night. They expect to arrive in Washington about 8 u.m. CST tomorrow. Much Accomplished Giving correspondents his views on the 21-nation peace con- ference which came to an end yesterday with Yugoslav dele- gates boycotting the final session, Byrnes said he felt the 11-week- long parley had accomplished much important work in regis- tering world opinion on peace treaty issues. Asked how he would describe current Russian-American Dela- tions, Byrnes said he put that in his talk Friday night. Still For Publicity The secretary commented that after trying out the new method of diplomacy whereby the press was admitted to committee meet- ings, he was still all for publicity on conferences. He said some dif- ferences might have been exag- gerated by by publicity, but that it had permitted the people to learn directly how decisions were taken, rather than learning from a few foreign ministers, whose accuracy might be subject to doubt.
