Bevin Plans To Discuss 4-Power Pact Aimed at Block New Aggression Anywhere in Europe London Foreign Secre- tary Ernest Bevin said today that he and the foreign ministers of U. S., France and the Soviet union would discuss at Moscow a four- power pact to prevent any new aggression in Europe. Initiating a House of Commons debate on foreign policy, Bevin said he was not sure that Germany, even after defeats In two great wars, knew the real meaning of defeat and recognized the stupidity of war as an object of policy.
