    Background: IN GENEVA, THE 17-NATION DISARMAMENT CONFERENCE ADJOURNED TODAY (THURSDAY) UNTIL NEXT YEAR. IT COULD ONLY REPORT ON ITS FAILURE TO REACH AGREEMENT ON GENERAL AND COMPLETE DISARMAMENT OR ON MEASURES TO REDUCE INTERNATIONAL TENSION.

    THE SOVIET DELEGATE, MR SEMYON TSARAPKIN, SAID THE CONFERENCE'S 1964 BALANCE SHEET SHOWED A GLOOMY AND DEPRESSING ZERO BECAUSE THE NORTH ATLANTIC MILITARY ALLIANCE MAINTAINED POSITIONS PREVENTING SUCCESSFUL NEGOTIATIONS. AND HE CALLED ON THE WEST, PARTICULARLY THE UNITED STATES, TO CHANGE THE DIRECTION OF ITS DISARMAMENT POLICY.

    DEPLORING MR. TSARAPKIN'S ATTACKS ON AMERICAN POLICY AND ON ITS ALLIES, MR WILLIAM C. FOSTER, U.S. DELEGATE, SAID SHARP DISAGREEMENTS OVER DISARMAMENT METHODS REMAINED. BUT "OUR LABOURS THIS YEAR HAVE NOT BEEN IN VAIN," HE SAID. AMERICA HOPED EARLY AGREEMENT COULD BE ACHIEVED AFTER THE PRESENT RECESS HE ADDED.

    THE RECESS IS EXPECTED TO LAST ABOUT FIVE MONTHS. THE CONFERENCE, WHICH HAS BEEN MEETING ON AND OFF SINCE 1962, WILL RESUME AFTER THE U.N. GENERAL ASSEMBLY DISCUSSES DISARMAMENT AT ITS AUTUMN SESSION.

    TODAY CONFERENCE CHAIRMAN, MR PER LIND, OF SWEDEN, SAID HE WAS DISAPPOINTED NO AGREEMENT HAD BEEN REACHED, BUT SAID THE GROUND HAD BEEN PREPARED FOR FUTURE AGREEMENT.
