  • Description

    Sept. 27 was another day of unending formal and informal meetings in New York for Britain's Premier Harold Macmillan. At a luncheon party he entertained United Nations representatives from New Zealand, Burma, Malagasey Republic, Pakistan, and Sudan. Also present were Tunisian President Bourguiba, Argentine Foreign Minister Taboada and newly elected Irish Chairman of the General Assembly, Mr. F. Boland.

    Later, accompanied by Foreign Secretary Lord Home, Mr. Macmillan travelled to the Yugoslav Embassy where he had consultations with Marshal Tito.

    Despite these meetings, and a 2 1/2-hour breakfast conference with President Eisenhower that morning, Mr. Macmillan finished drafting the speech he will make Sept. 29 to the U.N. General Assembly. It comprised about 6,000 words and will take nearly and hour to deliver. Reports say that its primary them is a call to the assembled world leaders to settle down and give their serious attention to problems threatening humanity.

    Lord Home was expected to call on Soviet Foreign Minister Gromyko Sept 28 to arrange a meeting between the British Prime Minister and Premier Khrushchev that day or the next.
