Hull went on: "No arrangement such -as described by Mr. Dewcy, which would involve a. military alliance of the four major nations permanently to co- orcu the rest of the world, is contemplated by this government, O r, as far us we know, by any of the other governments." 1 Hull pointed out that the four nations, in a Moscow declaration, luivo already jrone on record as a<lvocatinj: a "Konerul international organization, bused on the principle of sovereign equality of a.11 pence loving states." He added: "This new meeting 1 is for the purpose of a discussion amor,;; the signatories of the Mascow declaration as to the most feasible and desirable methods of establishing the kind of organization envisaged in that declaration. Any reports to the contrary are absolutely without foundation in fact." Jackson, Wyoming, Aug. ]7 — (UP)—Men still ara men in .the Wild W. est.
