Herter turned away from his first big East-West conference Saturday with the air of a man at once relieved and disappointed. It was a rough initiation into the ways of cold war diplomacy for the new secretary of state. He came here just six weeks ago hoping that in the final showdown the Soviet Union's Andrei (JromyRo would agree lo end the Soviet threat to Berlin. Now he sees no way out of the impasse. The next three weeks could bring a change in the Soviet positions.
