Valchesley M. Mololov, Soviet premier aild foreign commissar, Si a frank, speech before the Supreme Soviet last night, assailed the failure or. Britain, ti'nii Prime* to Include (he Baltic buffer states—Latvia, Esthonla, mid Lithuania— h: the network on anti-aggression guarantees. French Foreign Minister Georges Bonnet conferred at noon wltli British Ambassador Sir Eric Phlpps on Molotov'<? spcccli and • wns bc- "~ lleved to have stressed tlie necessity of finding some immediate com promise solution .to overcome Moscow's (objections to the Arjjlo French draft tiealy for a irl-power military alliance. A French spokesman said Dint the French government for its pail has no objection . to satisfying sis on the matter of the Baltic .guarantees, which Would augment the Aiifjio-French guarantees to ^Poland, Ritmaiita and Greece and is willing to make other "clarifications." There';remained,'however, a section of Anglo-French opposition to such Baltic guarantees, protecting Russia against a direct, German attack. • The opponents of such oWigallons asserted that: the Soviets would be able thereby to plunge Europe Into war at their own pleasure. Government leaders here were of the opinion that the necessity of Soviet participation in the peace front Is so great as to outweigh such opposition arguments. Many ohseners believed that France is so eager to obtain the . trt-power military alliance that pressure will be brought against Britain to nicet (lie Russians halfway and perhaps accept all of Russia's demands if Moscow proves unyielding. ••, Portland, Ore.,"'Will' Be Host During Rose Festival Week PORTLAND, Ore., June 1 (UP) —The first national convention of .American .Gold Star'Mothers ever held west of the Mississippi will open in Portland June 0, co-incident with Portland's colorful nnnual Rose Festival.
