speakers will be intellectual ly convinced that disarmament nuclear or total is presently practicable The talks are the result of a resolution adopted unani mously by the 104member United Nations General As sembly last December This a kind of EastWest compromise in its final form asked as a matter of urgency that the new disarmament body seek agree ment on general and complete disarmament under effective internationalcontrol At the Geneva talks the East will be represented as in the past by the Soviet Union arid Bulgaria Czechoslovakia Po land and Romania The West was to have been represented by the United Slates Great Britain France Italy and Can ada but France isnt sending anybody to the conferenceIts not really that France is against disarmament though as an old soldier De
