GENEVA - East-West negotia-

Indochina entered a decisive phase
yesterday as United States Sec-
retary of State Dulles prepared, to
leave tomorrow without having ex-
changed a word with Red China's
foreign minister Chou En-lai.
Representatives of the Big Four,
North and South Korea and Red
China met for 2% hours yester-
day on Korea. Assistant U.S. Sec-
retary of State Walter S. Robert-
son described the discussions as
"an informal exchange of views"

of the 16 nations which fought in
Korea. The conference has been
unable to reach any agreement on
unification of Korea.
Dulles has refused to take
any recognition of Chou at the
conference. In regular sessions
he is seated behind Chou but
studiously ignores him. Dulles
never has been introduced to
Chou or spoken a word to him.
Dulles met with Soviet Foreign
Minister Molotov on the proposals
by the United States to establish
a pool of atomic materials for
peaceful purposes. It was the sec-
ond such meeting this week.
A communique issued by the
U.S. delegation indicated no con-
clusions had been reached. The
communique said a reply to an
earlier American note handed over
by Molotov at the first meeting
with Dulles will be studied further
in Washington.
