This source, who has accepg to British and Stench notes wliicli have been exchanged about the plan, said the British object bi)- : causo Britain believes it would commit her to full memDcrsliip iri the scheme before it has been closely explored. French Call on llritisli The French, he said, called on Britain to sign a communique which would: 1- Agree to pooling coal and steel; 2. Submit her coal and steel industries to an international authority with poorer to take Indus- tl'ia^ decisions which would be binding on each country's government; 3. Agree that further talks would continue on the basis of these "essential commitments." All this dynamite was contained In a note of about 100 words, the source said. France Wants Agreement There could be no doubt, he explained, that France wanted all-out agreement on the plan before talks begin on how it will work.

Both thc French ambassador In' the may begin soon without the British. The French were reported sending another note to London asking that British make their position clear. Britain wants to proceed by "practical steps" toward possible unity of Europe's coal and steel industries, the source said, He did not outline what these practical steps would be. British government depalments already have finished their first surveys of thc plan. Among those which joined in (lie study were the ministries of supply, defense, fuel and power, and the foreign office. Their conclusions are still secret. SluiUos Based on Outline Tlie studies they made were based on Schuman's brief written outline of May 9 plus oral expansions by Jean Monnet, French industral planner who was the author of the scheme. The basis of the French plan is to unit French and German steel and coal production' in a pool which would be open to other countries In Europe. Those invited to Join are Britain, Belgium, Luxembourg, Holland and Italy. Precise details of Hie Friiich plan are lacking. Questions being raised in Uulldon include: Would the authority allot production quotas which would limit any country in its output? Would It set agreed prices? "Who Bears Cost?" Who would bear the cost to modernize these industries, which are at different stages of technical efficiency In different countries? Would each country pay its own bills, or would they be paid from pooled funds? Schnman has said his idea is to expand production and create a wide European market. This is Adm.
