Oath LONDON, March 29. (AP)— The foreign ministers of the 12 Atlantic « >el nations will meet in London ay 8 to chart new western moves In the Cold War and present Russia with a greater, unified strength. Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevln, announcing the date of the meet- Ing last night, said he foresaw a long peace If the Atlanllc alliance grew firmer and the eastern world could be held as Its ally. "I think the day Is not far' distant," said Bevln, "when the growth of this power will create a situation where there will be no alternative but to negotiate, to settle once and < for all this problem that has cursed the world for so long." Leave No Alternative His words were taken to mean he thought the Soviet Union, facing the combined western strength, would have no alternative but to negotiate with the west on problems dividing the world, The meeting of the 12 foreign ministers, who make up the council of the year-old Atlantic Pact, was called by VS. Secretary of State Dean Acheson, chairman of the council, at Britain's suggestion. Along with this meeting Berrn announced that he, Acheson and France's Foreign Minister Robert Schuman would hold a separate Big Three conference. Thus, the Atlantic Pact machine begins to roll Into high gear. Bevln told commons there was a growing iiesire among the allied nations to l^:al with economic and polltica' problems as well as with mutiia defense.

Bevin's disclosures came in the first full-dress parliamentary debate on foreign policy to be held since the Labor government was re-elected In February. Both he and his major opponant, Conservative Leader Winston Ch'urchill, made strong declarations that they did not believe war was either imminent or inevitable. >a Time .

"Western civilization Is a thing that J ; must be saved," Bevin said. "The only way to do It is to hold not merely the western world— that Is the key to its salvation— but the. eastern world as well: To hold the two together to develop the great power and potential of the west. "If that grows In combination, I visualize a long peace." ': The foreign. ministers are expected to cover every phase of the Cold War, Including Germany and Austria, the Far East and control of atomic energy. Views Swapped in Letter j A source close to the French foreign office said yesterday In Paris that the Big Three ministers— Bcv- In, Acheson and Schuman — already had exchanged viewpoints by letter. . Bevin, In his Commons speech, pointed up one issue which will doubtless take a top place In the council meeting— the question of International control of atomic weapons. lie said the only defense against the hydrogen bomb Is "the most rigorous system of international inspection and control." He said Britain Is still willing to attempt to reach an agreement with Russia on controlling atomic energy.
