Makeup Is Stricken Obscure Holds Threat Byrnes Leaves Tuesday For Critical Peace Con- ferences By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON, April Secretary Byrnes sets out for Paris tomorrow and o'her try at world neace-mak- inr. gravely aware of the possi- bilities of failure. He is slated to reach Paris in time to begin Thursday a series of critical conferences with For- eisn Ministers Molotor of Rus- sia. Berin of Britain and Bidault of France. Some of Mr. Byrnes' closest asso- ciates and advisers suggest that ac- tusliy this meeting would mark the end of efforts bv Britain. Russia and the United States to work harmon- iously to set up European oeace set- tlements and to build the United Nations into a powerful agency for maintaining the peace once it Is created. i Should this happen, it prohablv would result in open and unlimited creation of spheres of something the United States thus far has opposed wherever possible. Also it would link America and Bri- tain even more tishtjy in common interests and policies BACKING FOR BRITAIN Even if these extremes do not de- velop, the Paris conference may see the United States making one of its strongest moves in defence of Bri- tain's Empire interests. There are increasins evidences that United States officials current- !v regard the British Empire sys- tem as one of the bulwarks of world order which the United States can- not afford to have weakened at any strategic point. The issue may come about most clearly in the deadlock already cre- ated over Russia's demand for a trusteeship over Tripolitania and British and United States absolute objection.
