(UP)— The Big Four Foreign Ministers met loda> to consider Franco-Italian horde changes and disposal of surplus units of the Italian Navy. The third session of the Foreigr Minister of the United States. Great Britain. Russia and France opened at 4:05 p.m. (10:05 a.m. ESTI. Tiie foreign ministers' deputic: met this morning lo lay tin groundwr>k for the daily session After their meeting it was Icurnei that the day's program for tlv ministers was based on three pi'in clj>al points. They were the delineation o the bort/v between Italy an France, disposal of the surplus 1111 its of the Italian Navy, and liiriitii tion of the Italian navy. The speed with which the nn'n Liters wcr c getting down to basi issues In a preliminary draft c an Italian peace treaty indicate considerable progress in the first | two sessions of the conference. Although the mnislers ran headlong into the reparations hurdle in their second meeting yesterday, delegates described the atmosphere of the conference thus far as generally amicable. There was a complete lack, of shouting and table pounding such as marked some clashes nt the ministerial sessions in London last fall. . Delegates said there had been no serUms clashes between foreign minister V. M. Molotov of Russia and Ernest Devln sr James F. E/ 1 : ncs during the f' rst two sessions. They described Molotov as reserved and noticeably tired. The ministers dodged :v showdown on the deep differences i" the Russian and Anglo-American viewpoints toward Italian reparations by appointing a fact-rinding committee of experts to determine Italy's ability to pay. 1 Molotov asked $300,000,000 repa- f- rations from Italy. Byrnes and Bevin said they recognized Italy's moral responsibility to pay, but didn't want to see the substantial British and American financial contributions to Italian reconstruction syphoned out in the form o reparations to Russia and the Bui kan countries. American delegation member: were mildly jubilant over Molotov': agreement lor a fact-finding com niitlcc. They felt the Russians hac been made to accept a considerabl concession in swallowing the prin- j ciplc of an investigation. raSier than holding relentlessly to their demand. 'Hie ministers, also reached agreement on the wording of the preamble to the Italian treaty. The text was not disclosed. 'rher c was confusion about subjects to be discussed today before jhe deputies held their morning A session. • Next on the 11-point Italian pro,-ram submitted by the deputies were the related questions of the Yugoslav-Italian frontier and the assignment of Trieste to one ol those countries. Discussion of these complex problems depended upon completion of th e report of the four-power boundary investigation commission. This had not been completed late Friday night Other disputed points due for consideration were disposition of the Dodecanese Islands, the South Tyrol, the French-Italian frontier tlie fate of Italian colonies, limitations on the Italian fleet and disposition of surplus fleet units, and the allied inspectorate and treaty commission. An Italian embassy official said that Ilaly will present a memorandum to the ministers asking permission for Italy to retain certain army and navy forces., A dispatch from Sofia disclosed that Bulgaria had submitted memorandum to the conference voicing her demand tor access to the Aegean Sea by annexation ol Western Thrace from Greece.
