Britain Warns U. S. Against Rushing Into Partnership with West Germany « " "..ONDON .Sept. «. W)—Britain 3 cautioned the United States against rushing into a new partnership with Germany without insuring Its'basls is sound. A foreign office spokesman said yesterday the British view was contained In a''personal message sent lecently by Foreign Secretary Herbert Morrison to Secretary of State Dean Acheson. Morrison apparently said Britain would like Germany to be brought Into full political and military partnership with the west as quickly as possible. The spokesman added that Britain feels, however, "speed must not be allowed to prejudice the achievement of proper and satisfactory agreements." Morrison's message answered a communication which Acheson sent to Him and to French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman early last month. • " ; Acheson set forth a provisional timetable which, if fulfilled by the west, would restore much of the German nation's political, economic and military Independence. • The death rate In Denmark ha? dropped by nearly 40 per cent during the last 15 years.
