Informal Negotiations Over
Time for Disarmament
Comment Withheld Relative
To British Proposal
For Separate Meet
WASHINGTON. July 28. In-frt-mal
negotiations over the date
for the disarmament conference
were begun today wltn the Am
erican government suggesting se
lection of a time not later than
Armistice day, November 11.
Deiinite replies are to be re
ceived, but unofficial information
seems to indicate that some of
the other powers will prefer a
later date and that several diplo
matic exchanges may be neces-f-cry
before a unanimous agree
ment is reached.
Chance Given All.
The question of a meeting time
was discussed by Secretary of
State Hughes today with the
British and Japanese ambassa
dors and the Italian charge here.
China and France are to be con
sulted in the near future, though
it is emphasized that there will
be no disposition to press for a
decision until each party to the
conference can study the situa
tion.' The British ambassador. Sir
Auckland Geddes, is understood
to have suggested that a date
later than November 11 be se
lected unless a preliminary con
lerence is to be held at which the
dominion premiers can be pres
ent Such a preliminary meeting
will be possible, in the view of
the British government late this
summer when the premiers, now
in Londpn, are on their way
Preliminary Not Favored.
No formal comment was avail
able from American officials re
garding such a proposal or con
cerning the statement emanating
from official circles in London
today that a preliminary meeting
would be held within six weeks
in Canada or in some American
city other than Washington.
The general t Impression here
was that this government hoped
confidently to overcome the Brit

Japan Feels DlKadvantacre.
Japan is said to feel at a disad
vantage because of the time that
would be' required for her dele
pates to reach Washington, but
officials here believe she will
consent to the November date if
the other powers find it agree
able. Among all the participating
nations there is an appreciation
of the psychological advantage of
avoiding undue delay and it is ex

the revelations which might tol

cause of Milly Stockbridge's
death. But I had not yet had
time to comprehend the real mag

come to me and I was thank'ul
for Dicky's nonsense, which gave
me a necessary respite from both
retrospection and introspection.
And when several times during
our stav in the kitchen I caught
an involuntary smile cross Alice

one of Katie's bungalow aprons
