    IN LONDON, THE CONSTITUTIONAL TALKS ON THE FUTURE OF BRITAIN'S ONLY SOUTH AMERICAN COLONY, BRITISH GUIANA, WHICH WERE ADJOURNED LAST NOVEMBER, RESUMED TODAY (TUESDAY).

    THE CONFERENCE IS PRESIDED OVER BY MR. DUNCAN SANDYS, BRITAIN'S COLONIAL SECRETARY. DR. CHEDDI JAGAN, THE COLONY'S PREMIER, AND TWO OPPOSITION PARTY DELEGATIONS, SPENT THE MORNING SESSION DRAWING UP AN AGENDA.

    MR. FORBES-BURNHAM IS THE LEADER OF THE PEOPLE'S NATIONAL CONGRESS AND MR. P.S. D'AGUIAR LEADS THE UNITED FORCE DELEGATION. THEY SUSPECT DR. JAGAN'S PEOPLE'S PROGRESSIVE PARTY OF WISHING TO SET UP A COMMUNIST OR VIRTUALLY COMMUNIST STATE LIKE CUBA AND ARE SEEKING NEW ELECTIONS.

    DEMONSTRATIONS OUTSIDE THE CONFERENCE REFLECTED THE COLONY'S ANGUISH - SINCE THE LAST CONFERENCE, SOCIAL AND RACIAL UPHEAVAL SLIGHTED THE COLONY - RIOTS, ARSON AND A LONG GENERAL STRIKE, AS WELL AS THE FAILURE AMONG THE PARTIES TO AGREE ON A COMMON LINE.
