(.*)--The four en who head the foreign offices id navy departments of Great ritain; and Italy met at a long ible in the Palazzo Chigi today to ek a formula which will permit ill Italian adhesion to the London aval pact. The two Britons, Arthur Hender- son, secretary of state for foreign affairs, and A^ V. Alexander, first lord of the admiralty, believed that they have found the fomula, which is built around an agreement reached at Paris earlier this week specifying- a Franco-British naval relationship. Sitting with the British ministers in the conference were Dino Granui, youthful Italian foreign minister, and Rear Admiral Guiseppe Siriani, naval minister. There was widespread confidence today that the plan brot by the British would prove acceptable to the Mussolini government. It is believed that in effect it will defer final settlement of the party controversy until 1936, when the entire London treaty will come -up for review.
