ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the London Conference, for the solution of technical and military problems, faced by France and Germany. The conference depends to a large extent on Washington. Though serious, the problems of working out a compromise between the proposals of British Prime Minister Anthony Eden and those of Pierre Mendes-France that will be acceptable to Chancellor of West Germany, Konrad Adenauer are not insuperable. But if the technical problem, both military and political, are to be approached with the best chance for successful solutions, certain obstacles have to be removed. There is finally the factor of the New Deal. Mendes-France wants it not only in his own country but in the whole of Western Europe. His formula is a Europe free, prosperous and solvent. He will at the London Conference propose the application by all of the Brussels Treaty nations, and perhaps even by all the OEEC nations, of a number of conditions on social security and conditions of work drawn up in recent years by conferences of the United Nations International Labor Organization.
