    Background: Delegates - among them politicians, trade unionists and University professors - from 43 nations attended the three-day international conference, opened in Paris, Dec 1, to discuss Soviet Methods of 'political warfare.'
    The conference inauguration was in the conference hall of Nato's headquarters, but the conference study groups met for the other two days at another Paris conference hall.

    Among the 450 delegates were the representatives of the breakaway Katanga Province and of the Congo Republic of President Kasavubu. Maurice Schumann, President of the French National Assembly Foreign Affairs commission and 'father' of the European Coal and Steel Pool, read an opening message from French Prime Minister Michel Debre.

    Other delegates included Thuong Cong Cuuc of South Vietnam; Lord Birdwood of the British Royal Institute of International Affairs; Randolfo Pacciardi, leader of the Italian Republican Party; and Paul-Henri Spaak, Secretary-General of Nato.

    The conference, organised by Madame Suzanne Labin of France, is the first and largest of its kind. Main subjects of discussion under the them of Communist advancement by brains, not rockets; Russian propaganda, subversion and infiltration.
