Such a meeting probably would take place in London though there is a possibility it would be held somewhere else, the sourcs said. No firm arrangments have been made SO far. But British diplomats hope a brief MacmilJan Kennedy get together might be set up within the next few weeks. The prospects of an Anglo'American summit may be tentatively considered when Foreign Secretary Lord Home meets with U.

S. Secretary of State Dean Rusk at a conference of the Southeast Asia Treaty (SEATO) nations in Paris next month. These prospects also may be taken up at the North Atlantic (NATO) Council in Ottawa in May, the sources suggested. Diplomats in London apparently are hopeful the President would make an informal stopover in Britain after he visits Rome, Bonn and Berlin 1 in June. No formal presidential visit to London iS anticipated at this stage.

But there were unott cial suggestions that Kennedy might interrupt his flight for a few hours or even a stay over-night en route home from his scheduled Europe tour. This would dispense with heavy protocol and time consuming receptions. The only major reason against such stop over as seen here 1S the possible American consideration that a presidential visit to London could be interpreted as a calculated snub to President Charles De Gaulle. As of now Kennedy has no known plans to meet with the French president, nor apparently has De Gaulle expressed a desire to meet Kennedy in Paris. If London proves impractical, a Macmillan-Kennedy summit may The Weather Becoming partly cloudy and warmer Sunday afternoon.
