(Tuesday) UP) A source often regarded as a spokesman for the Czechoslovak foreign office declared today the Franco-British proposals for splitting the nation's territory to appease Adolf Hitler was unaccept-able to the Prague government. The authoritative newspaper, Lidova Noviny, whose diplomatic editor, Hubert Ripka, often reflects the foreign office viewpoint declared: "If the guarantees of borders made us 20.

years ago are invalid today, what assurance have we that promises made now will be kept in the future?" The newspaper's comment came as other sources, usually having access to government information, indicated the government would consider the London proposals, but only as a basis of further negotiation. Bewildered and harassed between the two desires to maintain their republic intact in the face of the drive of totalitarian powers and to solve the differences with their minorities which they claim always have been well-treated Czechs saw in the French and British proposals a sounding board for additional parleys in the in meeting today, sealed the agreement, reached by leading ministers of the world, let us first safe Litvinoff Said To Have "This change In direction has greatly lessened the threat to guard democracy here at home," she told the cheering delegates.
