in Trade Agreements
With Russia.1
PARIS, June 3.-()-Pressure
from industrialists, who are said
to be suffering as a result of recent

given in official circles as the basis
for a French desire to negotiate a
business pact with the Soviet gov-

day that a Russian delegation will

in the first three months of this
year France imported approximate-

These figures are considerably be-
low those of last year, the down
trend being attributed to France's
institution of the license system last
October and to Russia's treaties
with Germany and Italy.
