Hull explained in a tel gram to the department that a ten per cent tariff reduction had merely been suggested as a basis for discussion.
Phillips emphasized that this did not constitute an announcement of the American position on tariffs.
FONDON. June 19- ■ UP* The proposal for a flat IO p#*r rent, cut in tariffs submitted to th* World Economic Conference Saturday as an American suggestion, but later repudiated by Senator Key Pittman, member of the United States delegation. was sponsored by Secretary of State Cordell Hull, delegation chief, to the extent that he signed the letter that accompanied it, the United Press learned today.
The secretariat of the economic commission had received no request today fot withdrawal of the proposal, which suggested also extension of the tariff truce whereby signatories agree not to erect further tariff barrier and encouragement of bi-lateral treaties for tariff I eduction.
Observers, puzzled bv the conflict represented by Hull’s signature on the letter that accompanied the document to the commission secretariat, and Pittman's insistence that it was not an official proposal of the American delegation, saw the possibility of disagreement within the American delegation.
Pittman, in a statement yesterday, asserted that ‘ No such proposal was submitted by the delegation'. He said American technical adviser*

Chairman Hcndrikus Colijn, of The Netherlands, told the Economic Commission when it reconvened today that with the addition of Cuba and Venezuela, 50 nations, representing more than 85 par cent, of world trade, had adhered to the tariff truce.
