It became increasingly clear todnv that this understanding will be sought by President Hoover in his forthcoming conference with Premier Laval of France. It also became evident that disarmament and Its related subjects of a naval holiday will be linked with war debts and the world financial situation as the principal topic of the Hoover- Laval meeting. World Finances World finances formed the basis for the conversations today between Lord Reading, British foreign secretary, and Premier Laval In Paris, where it was stated “we do not know what will happen in the future.” At the same time two high officials of the Bank of France left for the United States. There were predictions they would join in the Hoover-Laval discussions. Second day reactions from the president's discussion of this subject with congressional leaders at Tuesday night’s conference also indicated that congress is reserving Judgement on an extension of the moratorium to see what may be gained in the way cf disarmament from Europe. <)f)pn>e Extension Senator Bingham. Republican, Connecticut. one of those attending the white house parley, emphatically asserted today that only two or three of the congressional conferees had definitely opposed any extension of the moratorium. “I believe it is fair to state,** he H'that the conferees reserved their judgement until they see what is worked out and that is necessary in the way of an extension.
