But he said England opposes boycotting any business deals because of s country's political creed. Mostly Harmonious In his meeting with reporters, Douglas-Home said his two days of White House sessions dealing with issues around the world were harmonious except tor the failure to agree on Cuban trade and the extending of long-term credit to finance sales to the Soviet bloc. The United States opposes this as a form of aid but London disagrees and Douglas-Home outlined his views to newsmen this way: Britain Is a crowded island :'We and therefore do not discriminate Morris, making his first Victoria slop in behalf bid for the Republican n of the Blqomington Independent School District has swelled lo to-work law.
