    While it is still not certain whether Lausanne, on the northern shore of Lake Geneva, will be the Swiss headquarters of the Algerian delegates to the forthcoming cease-fire negotiations with representatives of the French Government, preparations are going ahead at the proposed meeting place of the negotiators - the French lakeside resort of Evian.

  • Description

    While it is still not certain whether Lausanne, on the northern shore of Lake Geneva, will be the Swiss headquarters of the Algerian delegates to the forthcoming cease-fire negotiations with representatives of the French Government, preparations are going ahead at the proposed meeting place of the negotiators - the French lakeside resort of Evian.

    Whichever town on the Swiss side of Lake Geneva the Algerian emissaries may choose eventually, they will cross to the French southern shore by fast motorboat, landing at the Evian waterfront where groups of workmen are installing extra lighting.

    Painters are busy on the Hotel du Parc, the conference building. Scores of new telephone lines will provide the necessary communications. A pavilion in the grounds of this hotel has been set aside for day-time use by the Algerians, while the French delegates are to be put up at the nearby Hotel de la Verniaz. Observers of the international Press will have their headquarters at Evian's Festival Hall, a tall glass-fronted building of modern design.
