indicated when he uiswered Israeli Premier Moshe Jharetts protests against the flow f Red Arms to Egypt At Molotovs insistence Sharett and his aides refused todisclose he precise nature of his reply But this much did come out of he meeting Monday night between Molotov and Sharett The Soviet foreign minister did not turn a completely deaf ear to Sharelts complaint that the sale of submariss tanks

viously that he could buy military equipment if he asked it On another topic the Western Powers Jined UD solidly against Molotovs latest European security treaty plan They regarded it as an effort to confuse the issue of Ger man unity and freeze the present division of Europe Moscows master diplomat sprang his proposal which on the surface contained concessions to the Western viewpoint at the clos ing stage of Mondays session of the Big Four foreign ministers By his timing he made a bid to dominate the conference news throughout when the conference is in recess What Molotov proposed was that the great powers East and West Germany and nations neighboring Germany sign a provisional treaty on security in It would leave the North Atlan tic Treaty Organization in exist ence it would renounce war it would guarantee aid to any mem ber state which was attacked Myers Case Expected to G o to the Jury DAVENPORT murder rial of Louis Rusty Myers 30 Davenport was expected to go to a jury Tuesday
