wary of being hoodwinked by the Rus ians at any conference with Premier Stalin Thnt is the way the generals aides privately are summing up he generals position on Stalins stated interest in ending the Ko War and his indicated will ngness to confer with Eisenhower in a move to ease world tension Churchill Sails Friday night it was revealed that British Prime Minister Winston Churchill will sail for New York New Years Eve to talk over global problems informally with Presi dentelect Eisenhower The matter of conferences with Stalin will probably be a main issue in the discussions The announcement

ing his three days in New York Churchill will discuss with the Presidentelect the Korean War BritishAmerican trade and finan cial cooperation and defense prob ems in West Europe and South east Asia The general reportedly will in sist that the new administration know in advance just what Stalin has in mind before thinking seri ously about any facetoface con ference with the Soviet leader The
