official of any country can speak convincing ly of any visible area of possible agreement Prospects for disarmament or 2 test ban are certainly dark since the Soviets are demanding in effect that the

itself an easing of East IVest tensions American sources said just be iore the session opened that the Western powers and Russia might De able to negotiatean agreement to block the spread of nuclear weapons and thus begin to bring the arms race under control Western officials saw little pros pect of agreements in coming months however whichwoulc halt the manufacture of nuclear weapons The outlook is dim too foi stopping nuclear weapons testing In both cases officials said the apparently insuperable barrier is Russias unwillingness to open up its territory to international in spection The official goal of the new LJNsponsored conference in the Palace of Nations was an allem bracing treaty for genera and complete disarmament But the Western powers regarded such a reaty as an ideal which cannot ae achieved in the present state fo EastWest relations The United States and Britain went into the conference with ob jectives far short of a blanket commitment to total disarma ment The two
