The West clearly intended to blame Russia for the failure. The Molotov statement turned down by the West today set forth those provisions for a European security pact which both skies had agreed were desirable. But it omitted mention of the unification of Germany which the West considers of first importance to security. Meanwhile, the Western delegations released the text of a proposal they had prepared for a four- power statement on disarmament. The Russiar delegation had released its competitive draft last night. Western officials said neither proposal had much meaning now, because neither would be acted on. The draft prepared by the West would have had the four ministers state that their exchange of views here on disarmament "has been useful in clarifying their respective positions," even though all they could agree on was the statement that there was a need for disarmament. The major result of the conference appears to be the demonstration that Russia is determined not tj accept a reunified Germany allied, wiih the West, and that the Western Powers won't accept any other kind of Germany. Any progress toward solving the disarmament problem, or toward eliminating East-West barriers to trade, travel and uncensored information also \vas trapped between the rigid positions of the two great power blocs. Leaves Today U. S. Secretary of State Dulles was expected to leave for Washington — with plans to report to President Eisenhower as soon as possible — shortly after this afternoon's meeting with V. M. Molotov or Russia, Harold Macmillan of Britain and Antoinc Pi-->y of Prance. The round of closing speeches tion of, each side, and lay the groundwork for the propaganda battle made certain by failure of the conference. The Western Big Three were reported completing a declaration that would blame Russia for the failure to bring a German settlement nearer. They agreed among' themselves vthey would not commit them- sflves to holding new negotiations with Molotov next spring on the German question. Molotov's position on the question of a new conference was not known. Dulles believed it would be a mistake to pledge another meeting soon, or to join in any com- munique which tried to "paper over" the disagreements so sharply developed here. In this he was supported by the West German government. A Bonn spokesman said an essential condition for any new meeting must be that "the Soviets in dicate some sincerity" for German reunification. Molotov wound up yesterday's session with an indication he ur gently wants agreement on some kind of statement about European security. At the outset of the conference, which began Oct. 27, he proposed an all-European security treaty which, within three years would abolish NATO. After a few days he proposed a similar treaty of smaller scope which would leave NATO intact but prolong the division of Germany . The West batted these down, saying they would engage in no security pact until Germany was unified through free elections. Rejected By West Again this week Molotov offered a nonaggression pact between NATO and the bloc of Communist states known as the Warsaw Alliance, The West rejected that on grounds that all U. N. members were already committed to non- aggression. Then last night Molotov, in what could be his final bid for some show of unanimity on security .fell back oh a suggestion that the four powers agree on a statement setting forth those provisions of a European security treaty which both sides already had described as desirable. These include reunification of force, joint action against aggression, denial of assistance to an aggressor, creation of an East- West buffer zone of limited mili- j iary power, consultation and recognition of the right of self-deiense. Pinay said he would have to study this overnight. Dulles and Macmillan said the list did not express the Western viewpoint that security depended on German unification. Dulles obviously did not want Molotov to. go away with a piece of paper which could be used to cover the wide ?ulf here and to support any claim that progress had been made toward a real peace settlement. IKE frpm at Camp David early n«xt with Cabinet and security tib members. Camp David is the presidential retreat 20 miles from herft In th» Catqctin Mountains, The President is expected to drive there, profcm- bly remaining overnight.
