    Background: "A WORLD ORDER - OR ANNIHILATION" WERE THE ALTERNATIVES OFFERED BY LORD ATTLEE IN DELHI ON WEDNESDAY AT THE OPENING OF THE ALL-INDIA WORLD FEDERALISTS CONFERENCE. LORD ATTLEE HAD FLOWN INTO NEW DELHI FROM TOKYO TO ATTEND THE CONFERENCE.

    THE FORMER BRITISH PRIME MINISTER WENT STRAIGHT FROM THE AIRPORT TO SAPRU HOUSE, WHERE HE WAS GIVEN A ROUSING RECEPTION FROM THE LARGE GATHERING. MR NEHRU WAITED TO GREET LORD ATTLEE WHO WAS ACCOMPANIED BY HIS WIFE.

    IN HIS SHORT ADDRESS, LORD ATTLEE EMPHASISED THE NEED TO DISARM AND TO PREPARE A CLIMATE FOR THE COMING TOGETHER OF NATIONS. HE WANTED NATIONS TO "GET RID" OF WAR PREPARATIONS. NOW THAT SCIENCE HAD ADVANCED SO MUSH "WE COULD, IF WE WOULD, DESTROY MISERY AND POVERTY ALL OVER THE WORLD."
    MR NEHRU STRESSED THE NEED FOR ACHIEVING TOTAL DISARMAMENT, QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE, GRADUALLY IF NECESSARY. BUT HE RECOGNIZED THAT FEAR AMONG EVEN THE MOST POWERFUL NATIONS WAS HE CRUX OF THE PROBLEM. ON ANOTHER SUBJECT, THE INDIAN PRIME MINISTER REFERRED TO THE NECESSITY OF RE-FORMING THE UNITED NATIONS ORGANIZATION.
