"You don't seem to realize," ho said, "that Russia has ueed up the tremendous reservoir of goodwill It had built up in this country. Moat people had great admiration for Russia. But It's gone now. When you follow a consistent policy of calling us names, naturally, you can't expect us to love you," Byrnes also suggested that Molotov chock with some of the heads of the Russian satellite nations who had close contacts among Czech- Am ericanB and Yugoslav - Americans regarding the sentiment of the American public toward Jlussia. Molotov seemed shaken by Byrnes's statement. Almost immediately he said he would agree to 15 Inuiort- nnt provisions in the Italian 'treaty. And In the regular treaty talks which followed, he began to make decisions and shell out favorable concussions as i!' he really meant business. From that point on, there was smooth sailing. In the end, the Russians even accepted the important principle of arms inspection by the United Nations, including inr.pection on their own sovereign .1011. Molotov, of course, had received new instructions from the Politburo in Moscow. Also he had received assurances from Byrnes that there won no danger of the United States chanR-ing its position on the veto for at least one year. These Politburo instructions were largely the result of the firm but friendly advice given Molotov by Byrnes during weeks of talking to each other in Pari.'i and New York. Byrnes finally had won out. A Fret- I'rc»« In Moscow After the atmosphere cleared and the Russians suggested that they play host for 'the German-Austrian peucc talks, Byrnes took the liberty of giving -his Russian friend some additional advice. "\Vhnn you hold the Moscow Conference," ho told Molotov, "my advice to you is to let the press come In and operate freely without any censorship. If you do that you will win more friends and build up more i, r rjctl will than you have any idea of. "You should also permit radio broadcast. The American public is UMi;d to radio. I get up in the morning- and turn on the radio while I t-huve. And If you let radio and | newsmen come in during the Moscow conference and operate freely, you will win more friends ; than by anything- else I know." Molotov agreed, in principle, though he still hasn't given the final green light on radio broadcasts. JJrltlxn Bargain on ^uhr Though they didn't leak out at tliu time. Byrnes aUa had some differences with the British, one of tho moat vigorous being over payment of the British deficit -in Us occupation /.one in Germany. The British zone, including the wealthy Ruhr industries, operated last ye-sir on a S^OO.000,000 deficit, while the loss wealthy American •/.onn, with a less donee population but more agriculture, operated on a $200,000,000 deficit. Some American officials have re- scnled the fact that the British grabbed off tho prize part of Germany when they took over the Ruhr. For although badly 'battered now. it is Che -backbone of Germany, Ex-gecretary of the Trcas- urv Morgen-thau la credited with Bevin replied that he.'couldn't-do' that without consulting hi3 Cabinet "Well, call them up," shot back Byrnes, who believes in fast action. "I've got-a direct phone to London right here.". Bevln .hemmed and hawed. He knew what the .reaction of the British Cabinet would be. Instead, h« brought in a British financial expert named Whaley and asked him to explain the British financial position in more detail to the American Secretary of S'tate. Byi-nest-Outscotohes Scot* "Whaley," said Byrnns, wanting to make the financial expert feel at home,-"that's an interesting name. I have ,a .friend named Whajey from .South Carolina on the Court of Claims (Judge Richard S. Whaley of Charleston.) He is -a Scot. II you're a Scot, I'm sure you can drive a tight bargain," Mr. Whaley proceeded to give Byrnes , an even more woeful pic- lure of the British financial situation rhan had Bevin. He put up a convincing argument. Finally Bi'i'n-es replied. "Well, I'll tell you what I'll do We'll just pretend Mr. Bevin isn't in the room, and I'll make you an offer. We'll pay 65 per cent of the British deficit—if you will trade zones. I .offered Mr. Bevin 60 pei cent, but I'll offer you 65 per cent.' However, there was still no enthusiasm. Byrnes, of course, knew in advance .that hii offer would be. turned down.
