    TRANSCRIPT: (SEQ. 3) LORD HOME SAID: "IN NEW YORK, WE HAVE DONE SOME USEFUL WORK, AND THAT THE ATMOSPHERE WHICH STARTED IN MOSCOW IS STILL THERE, THAT THE RUSSIANS WANT AGREEMENTS. YOU NEVER GET ALONG VERY QUICKLY IN NEGOTIATING WITH THE SOVIET UNION AS WE KNOW FROM PAST EXPERIENCE, BUT THE GREAT THING IS THAT THE TENDENCY IS IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION, AND THAT THE ATMOSPHERE OF NEGOTIATION IS QUITE DIFFERENT FROM ANYTHING THAT HAS BEEN IN THE LAST THREE OR FOUR YEARS. AND SO, ALTHOUGH SOME MAY THINK THAT OUR PROGRESS HAS BEEN MODEST, IT IS CERTAINLY IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. AND I THINK THAT THE FREE WORLD CAN GAIN COMFORT FROM THAT."
