Freeman said his increased rate for milk compared with $3.06 a hundredweight for manufacturing milk and 56.6 cents a Pound for butterfat proposed by the Eisenhower administration in its budget report for the 1961-62 fiscal year.

No Accord the Geneva conference failed to produce any East West Accord. Later the question arose whether the concessions which the West Era Powers had offered including a possible Cut in the size of the West Berlin Garrison would provide the starting Point for new East West negotiations on West berlins status. Eisenhower administration officials then said privately that if further negotiations did take place the same concessions might or might not be offered but they would not constitute the initial bargaining position for the Western Powers. Comments Friday by state department spokesmen were much More explicit and they were on the Public record. The diplomatic effect was to serve notice to the soviet government that past offers on Berlin will not necessarily figure in any future East West negotiations.
