LONDON, March 17 — (UE) — French Foreign Minister Pierre Eti enne Flandin tonight said he would sit with Chancellor Adolf Hitler’s representatives at the League of Nations council table Thursday but he won’t talk peace with them. “I will refuse conversations with tjie Germans until France has obtained complete satisfaction,” Flandin said. “I am willing to sit at the council table with the Germans but I will not discuss Chancellor Hitler’s peace proposals for the present.” Flandin Will Report After Thursday’s session, when the council is scheduled to vote on Franco-Belgian demands for indict ment of Germany as a treaty breaker, Flandin will fly back to Paris to report to Premier Albert Sarraut and the cabinet. “I will decline to negotiate with Germany at least until the council has condemned Germany’s violation of the treaty of Locarno,” Flandin told French press correspondents. “I will decline to r.egotiate until Germany has agreed to permit the Hague court to decide whether the Franco-Soviet pact is compatible with the treaty of Locamo.” The foreign minister said France today successfully repulsed a new assault on her diplomatic position. “A fresh attempt was made to force France to start negotiations with Germany before obtaining satisfaction of any kind. This effort has been defeated.” France Will Fight Flandin said France will fight also until she has won reestablishment of international law. He insisted that although the Germans wanted a guarantee the Hitler peace plans would be considered. British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden, after consulting Flandin. advised the Berlin foreign office he was unable to give such guarantees. “The Germans decided to come anyhow." Flandin said. He stressed that France wants Bri-tian to abandon the role of media-tor-arbitrator and return to the role of co-signatory of the Locamo treaty. The Locamo treaty signatories met at the foreign office at 10 pjn. to consider plans for tomorrow’s council meeting. Parallel to council activities the ministers representing the Locamo powers will continue negotiations, largely on the basis of French and British memoranda. These negotiations were expected to culminate in a treaty by which the British would agree automatically to fight Germany If she attacks France.

So why shouldn’t I follow the example set by my worthy predecessors?” Nash wouldn’t admit that he was entirely at fault for having the March “PoUtix” edition issued a day late, but created a unverified report that the withdrawal of an important candidate forced him to make some last-minute changes, hence hampering scheduled publication. “But don’t worry.
