332. Editorial Note

Since Molotov was still in Moscow, each delegation spent November 7 in separate meetings. Secretary Dulles met with the United States members of the Working Group on Contacts and the Working Group on Disarmament at 10 and 11:30 a.m., respectively. Between these meetings he discussed the Middle East with senior staff officers. At 12:30 p.m. he met officials from the United Nations Refugee Program, and at 3 he discussed the course of the conference with Erich Ollenhauer, leader of the SPD Party in West Germany. The Secretary concluded the day’s work with an interview with Pierre Hans of the International News Service. (Department of State, Conference Files: Lot 60 D 627, CF 578, Chron–16 and US OD/9a)
