    IN GENEVA, MAR 16 - AT THE END OF THE FIRST WEEK OF THE 17-NATION DISARMAMENT CONFERENCE - THERE WAS A DESIRE FOR FASTER PROGRESS AND LESS FORMALITY IN THE TALKS WHICH, INDIA PROPOSED, MIGHT PROVE MORE FRUITFUL ON A SUBCOMMITTEE LEVEL.

    AFTER FURTHER SPEECHES IN THE MORNING, CONFIRMING THE IMPRESSION THAT EASTERN AND WESTERN POSITIONS ON BERLIN AND NUCLEAR TESTS ARE STILL IN DEADLOCK, UNITED STATES SECRETARY OF STATE DEAN RUSK VISITED POLISH FOREIGN MINISTER RAPACKI AT THE RESIDENCE OF THE POLISH DELEGATION. FOR ABOUT 75 MINUTES THEY DISCUSSED DISARMAMENT AND THE BERLIN QUESTION IN WHAT WAS DESCRIBED AS "A FRIENDLY BUT NON-NEGOTIATING MEETING".

    MEANWHILE, SOVIET DELEGATE TSARAPKIN - RUSSIA'S LEADING REPRESENTATIVE AT THE TEST BAN TALKS - TOLD A PRESS CONFERENCE THERE WAS NO HOPE OF A NUCLEAR TEST BAN AGREEMENT BASED ON INTERNATIONAL CONTROL. IN VIEW OF THE ADVANCEMENT OF SCIENCE IN RECENT YEARS, NATIONAL MEANS OF DETECTION WERE QUITE ADEQUATE. AMERICA'S INCREASED INSISTENCE ON INTERNATIONAL CONTROL MADE RUSSIA DOUBT OF SHE REALLY WANTED AN AGREEMENT.
