Molotov got assurance that this would not prevent an early start on German discussions. Molotov was.reported by Western power diplomats to be anxious to make a major speech on Germany at the earliest opportunity. It was expected, though not at all certain, that Molotov would agree to place the Austrian Issue nrst on the six-point agenda agreed to at the opening session yesterday, but with the- understanding that it would be dispatched almost dlately to the deputy foreign min- isters. Marshall, British Foreign Secre- tary Ernest Bevin and French For- eign Minister Georges Bldault might have to agree in turn, it was said, with Molotov's proposal for the or- der of Items on Germany, giving priority to a discussion of peace treaty arrangements rather- than to the economic and political unity of Germany.
