Background: America's Christian Herter; France's Couve de Murville; and Russia's Andrei Gromyko, were luncheon guests July 20 at the rue Senebier villa of Britain's Selwyn Lloyd. In the afternoon they again met in conference at the Palais de Nations, Geneva.
The four-power foreign ministers conference appears to have come to a dead stop. Success seems as far away as ever. Western delegates hoping to overcome Gromyko's insistence on an all-German committee before discussing the Berlin question in detail, are meeting with a non-committal reception from the impassive Russian Foreign Minister.
To selected American correspondents at a private White House briefing July 21, President Eisenhower indicated that he is by no means convinced Premier Kruschev wants a summit-meeting, but is reserving judgement until after Vice-President Nixon's trip to Moscow.
