Delegations here were aware that the most Important decisions—such as whether It) use the atomic bomb j and whether to bomb Manchuria — would he matte in Washington. The entire strategy, they felt, would bc- cnmc much more clear nfter weekend conferences there between President Truman and Prime Minister Clement Atllee of Britain.

Seven days later, while a special Jajmnese envoy discussed peace with Secretary of State Hull In Washington, the Bneak attack r>n Pearl Harbor plunged this nation into Ih*. woilri'i bloodiest conflict. One week ago another Fur Eastern delegation— thin one from Communist China— arrived In New York to appear before the United Nations. Its leader. Wu Hsiii Chuan, said that "a profound friendship has always existed between the Chinese people and the American people." Two days later— on Sunday— it was apparent that Red China had opened a powerful offensive against U. N. troops in Korea. Many observers had predicted such a move would set off another world war In December, 1941. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill came to this country to confer with President Franklin D. Roosevelt and yesterday it was announced that Prime Minister Attlee will arrive probably early next week lor talks with President Truman.
