irot Officials Predict West Will Reject Russia's 'Germany Unity' Plan By JOHN M. HIGHTOH'KR WASHINGTON Wl _ Diplomats predicted today the Western pow«« very prdbsbly will reject Rus«l«'s new demand for a four-power conference on unifying Germany. Soviet insistence that any German peace treaty must give a ^unified Germany her own independent army, navy and air force Was seen as a major obstacle lo »n East-West agreement. Russia also stood by her original suggestion that the Hig Four, not the United Nations, should decide whether all-German elections are feasible. Officials here. In predicting rejection of the latest Russian moves, emphasized, 'however, that the final decision will be reached in public yesterday. 5n many respects bombshell. ' an a For one thing. Secretary of stale Acheson had declared lhat it the Soviets sincerely wanted free elections and an all-German government they, would agree to accept the Untied Nations inquiry This was seen as a test of Soviet good Instead of accepting it the' Soviets clung to their idea of four power control of everything to do with Germany. The United states is therefore in a position to claim that the Russians did not measure up on the test of good fail!,.

It particularly wants understanding and support in Germany, A flat rejection poses a touchy problem. It would have to be phrased in such a way as to convince Western Europe that the i Russian bid lor German unity is! • merely a phony but dangerous] propaganda move, and that the West also wants a unified Germany, but under a system that J^'ill safeguard her from Commtl- \TIism. Top authorities here view the latest series of Russian moves. first'set off by a March 10 Soviet proposal, as merely a maneuver to disrupt the Western defense buildup. The March 10 note dramatically reversed Russia's postwar stand against a rearmed Germany. It proposed a unified Germany with her own armed forces—but without the right to Join any. alliance against a World War II enemy. It suggested the u. s.. England. France and Russia hold a conference k> work out a treaty along these lines. ' The proposal was immediately viewed In some circles as a propaganda move because unification is the overriding political issue throughout Germany and any step toward a settlement arouses enormous European interest. On March 25 the Western powers, In a carefully-weighed, carefully- worded answer, did not turn down the tdea of a unified Germany.

He's seldom tense—outwardly at least—these tiays.
