Beck was considered a quite capable a of handling the dispute with Germany. New parliamentary criticism of prime minister Chamberlain for delay in British russian Security negotiations to supplement tin British pledge to Poland was foreseen. Some members of parliament favouring a close British French Alliance with Russia expressed fears that Moscow might turn her Back completely on the Western pow ers now that the Broad collective Security proposals have been virtually rejected. The possibility instead that she might seek friendlier relations with Germany also was considered seriously. In russian circles in London the effect or Litvinoff a removal on present Security negotiations was minimized. Nevertheless most persons expected the change to bring at least a temporary setback to the British French diplomatic Campaign. Although there was no official comment informed sources Here believed Litvinoff a replacement by Vya Chesloff Zolotoff was closely linked with negotiations with Britain and France. Wait indication some indication from Moscow on these vital Points was anxiously awaited by the British foreign office 1. Whether the replacement of Litvinoff marked a change of soviet foreign policy which thus far has favored some sort of an Alliance with Britain and France. Before word of Litvinoff a resignation reached London yesterday the British Cabinet rejected russian proposals for a triple military Alliance of Britain. France and Russia with guarantees of the Independence of numerous smaller european countries along the Baltic and Black seas. It was reliably reported the Cabinet decided merely to urge Russia to a a reinsured commitment to Poland and Rumania. 2. Whether talks which Litvinoff was said to have agreed to a talks with French foreign minister George Bennet and British foreign Secretary Viscount Halifax a Geneva May 15�?would still take place. With Zolotoff representing Moscow. To break aka Ilia h k Halifax was said to have suggested the Geneva meeting to break the deadlock Between Britain and France on one hand the soviet Union. S. W Hether the new commissar will Speed up negotiations. Some unconfirmed report in London said the slowness of the negotiations had been one of the cause for Litvinoff resignation. Some observers saw the russian move As foreshadowing a breakup in the talk with Russia. Diplomatic quarters thought it significant Litvinoff a resignation followed the deadlock in negotiations. Some sources close to the government. However consoled themselves with the belief that Russia a willing in principle to Coop Tate and that the change in soviet commissar would not affect the situation seriously unless accompanied by an important change in foreign policy. The news from Moscow almost overshadowed prime minister c Ham Berlaine a offer to Exchange non aggression assurances with Germany and Eric Hsuehi or hitlers offer to negotiate Mutual non aggression guarantees with Baltic and scandinavian slates. C Ham Berlaine a conscript Ion measure which would permit the government in each year of a Ihrcke year period to Call up per haps 200.

Only yesterday authoritative sources in London had said Litvinoff would meet the foreign ministers of Britain and France at Geneva May to to break the deadlock in negotiation for a triple Alliance. Previously the Britten Cabinet was reported to have rejected the latest soviet proposals for British French russian guarantees against aggression for All nations to the Baltic and Black sea areas a Broad plan follow no Litvinoff a collective Security ideas. Instead the British Cabinet a reported to have proposed that Russia a a reinsured the British French commitments to Poland and Rumania. I pol so political Circle were reported from Warsaw to believe Litvinoff replacement came As a result of a div Ygerne of views in High soviet circles Over Litvinoff ideas based on the league of nations principle. The quarters said Zolotoff Litvinoff successor leaned to the principle of bilateral Security agreements such a France an i Britain have put into effect with Poland and Rumania and which they Are now asking Russia to reinforce with a parallel declaration. The fact that Litvinoff for year had been one of the chief target of nazi attacks on what the German propaganda minister. Paul Joseph Goebbels and his colleagues have described As a jewish bolshevism was no proof that relations with Germany must now become friendlier. Those looking for signs of filch development emphasized however that Litvinoff disappearance from office was not Likely to cause displeasure in Berlin. Some observer have seen sign of such a in a re cent speech in which Stalin declared capitalistic Powers of Western Europe sought to involve Germany in an unnecessary wat with the soviet and in the fad that Adolf Hitler in his Reich Stag speech of april 28 failed to make his usual Strong attack on Russia other observers stressed that in recent years the Kremlin has been taking Over More and More the direction of foreign policy a trend which would Lead naturally to the elimination of such a string personality a Litvinoff.
