Story Of Roosevelts’
„ Plan To Visit London
LONDON, Feb. 22. —(U.R)— The
Evening Standard gave top play
today to a dispatch from its New
York correspondent . which said
that President and Mrs. Roosevelt
will visit London in the spring.
The dispatch said the date nas
not yet been set, but added that
President Roosevelt might parti
cipate in an inter-Allied victory
march down the Mall and a mass
review in Hyde Park.
The American Embassy, com
menting on the report, said, ‘it
is just anybody’s guess whether
President, and Mrs. Roosevelt will
visit London this year. No ope
here has heard anything about it
and, honestly, we don’t know any

PARIS, Feb. 22. —(fl5)—Foreign
Minister Georges Bidault will
leave for London, probably to
morrow, . to confer with Foreign
Secretary Eden on details of »he
Crimea Conference, the French
government announced tonight.
(A dispatch from London, where
it was announced that Bidault
had accepted Britain’s invitation
to make the trip, said the visit was
expected to help relieve tension
resulting from French resentment
over being excluded from the Cri
mea discussions, but that the real
purpose was thought to be negotia
tions preliminary to a Britfsh
French military alliance.!
An authorized official said today
France was satisfied thus far with
the position accorded her in the
postwar world by the Crimea Con
ference but was reserving decision
on participation in the San Fran
cisco United Nations Conference.
This official declared France
would delay the decision until full
information is received concern
ing France’s postwar role.
Satisfaction thus far was derived
from some additional information
on the Yalta decisions which nas
been received from French ambas
sadors in Washington. Moscow and

official said, indicated the Big
Three powers want to give France
full equality of sfatus in dispos

most important of these questions
is the blueprinting of a world
security plan, including the occu

France has demanded a full share.
