building up a sharp conflict between Byrnes and Bevin to Rest London The British for eign office announced Saturday that Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin had been ordered by his doctors to take a complete rest of at least a week and that Prime Minister Attlee will take his place at the Paris peace con ference Russian Foreign Minister Molotov over Russian reparation demands on Hungary The United States is insisting that a new economic deal in Hun gary is essential to establishment of a firm peace in Europe It has protested strongly lied army sei zures of Hungarian foodstuffs and Soviet removals oE Hungarian factories as well as current in dustrial production contending he result is economic chaos in the Balkan nation The protest made public by the state department Friday night

Italy Bulgaria Roman ia and Finland Byrnes briefly reviewed some of his Paris projects at a news con ference He said that he planned on Monday to confer with tht three American members of a joint AngloAmerican committee on Palestine The aim is to fix American policy on the commit tees proposal for partitioning Palestine between Jews and Arabs in connection with the plan for immigration of
