SUCCESS RESTS ON AGREEMENT WITH RUSSIANS British and American Delegates Talk Over Topic 1st With Russia Moscow and Amer ican delegates to the big 3 foreign ministers conference took up with soviet Russia Saturday the ques tion of control of the atomic bomb Much of the potential success of the conference depends unon the success of the AngloAmerican powers in reaching a satisfactory solution with llassia on atomic control It was a matter of elementary courtesy for the AngloAmericans to take up atomic energy with Russia before the question was submitted to a general debate by the united nations The wartime agreement regarding the inter change of scientific information among the big 3 apparently does not apply automatically to tho postwar Under wartime collaboration the AngloAmericans did not hesitate to give the soviet union weapons which were immediately needed in the war Radar was the notable exception To avoid the danger ot radar falling into German hands along the fluctuating eastern front its secret remained exclusive AngloAmerican property This situation was understood by the Russians as far as can be determined here The Russians were fold regard ing development of the atomic bomb at the Postdam conference before its actual use but no form ula or specifications were given fo them There was increased but guarded optimism in British and American quarters about possible conference results A new trend in the talks devel oped Friday when the ministers called in the British and Ameri can ambassadors Sir Archibald CbrkKcrr and W Averell Harri man and Sir Alexander Cadogen permanent undersecretary of the British foreign office for a 5 hour talk This broadening the discus sion group meant that the talks were moving at a faster and more informal psice Current results have been ex pressed jn two separate formulas First informants said the results may be called positive rather than negative Secondly the talks were described as frank and friendly The Russians would say nothing whatsoever about the conference which has passed unnoticed in Moscow newspapers The soviet course is to let final results speak for themselves ICKESWlfS HAWAII AS STATE
