The two convened at 11 a.m. for the climactic session of three days of conferences. The agreement to be approved involved supplying Britain with Polaris missiles instead of th'e controversial Skybolt, which the United. States is discarding. Conference sources expressed opinion the result of the talks could open a new'era in Atlantic nuclear defense. Some said it 'an ease difficul- ties with French President 'Charles de Gaulle and unify West- ern Big Three defenses eventually nnder one big deterrent umbrella. This, however, will take time.
