  • Description

    SECRETARY OF STATE CHRISTIAN HERTER LEAVES FOR THE GENEVA CONFERENCE TODAY. LAST NIGHT HE CAUTIONED A NATION-WIDE RADIO AND TELEVISION AUDIENCE NOT TO EXPECT MIRACLES OF THE EAST-WEST CONFERENCE.

    IN EUROPE, DIPLOMATIC OBSERVERS EXPECT THE SOVIETS TO COMPROMISE ENOUGH AT GENEVA TO LURE THE WEST INTO A SUMMIT PARLEY.

    COMMUNIST PROPAGANDA ATTACKS APPEAR TO BE SHIFTING TOWARD WEST GERMANY.

    IZVESTIA, THE SOVIET GOVERNMENT NEWSPAPER IS INSINUATING THAT WEST GERMANY'S INTRANSIGENT ATTITUDE IS SWAYING WESTERN POLICY. IN ESSENCE, THE REDS ARE SAYING THAT THE TAIL IS WAGGING THE DOG.

    SECRETARY OF STATE CHRISTINE FERTER FLIES TO EUROPE TODAY. FIRST TO BONN FOR A MEETING WITH WEST GERMAN CHANCELLOR ADENAUER. AND THEN TO GENEVA, WHERE THE MEETING OF THE FOREIGN MINISTERS OPENS ON MONDAY. IN A TELEVISION AND RADIO SPEECH TO THE NATION LAST NIGHT, HERTER WARNED AGAINST EXPECTING TOO MUCH FROM THE GENEVA CONFERENCE. BUT, HE SAID, IF THE RUSSIANS ARE WILLING TO GIVE SOME GROUND... WE'D GO ALONG AND MAKE SOME CONCESSIONS:
    RADIO MOSCOW TOLD ITS LISTENERS OF THE HERTER SPEECH TODAY, BUT MADE NO COMMENT. THE SOVIET ANNOUNCER SAID, HOWEVER, THAT THE WEST IS GOING TO GENEVA WITH A PLAN THAT HAS LITTLE TO DO WITH A PEACE TREATY OR A SETTLEMENT OF THE BERLIN DISPUTE.
