    Background: British Minister of State, Mr. David Ormsby-Gore arrived in Geneva on Oct. 30 for the three-Power talks on the suspension of Nuclear weapon tests and the establishment of inspection posts throughout the world.

    Shortly after Mr. Ormsby-Gore's arrival the American delegation to the talks, headed by James J. Wadsworth-- President Eisenhower's personal adviser on disarmament-- and Dr. Robert F. Bacher, a physicist, landed.

    A shadow has already been cast over the talks by a Soviet statement that Russia does not accept British and American proposals to stop nuclear test explosions, for one year.

    The Russian delegation is led by Mr. Tsarapkin.

    The task of the conference is to try to reach agreement on setting up an international control organisation to supervise cessation of tests of nuclear explosions. Agreement on the basic technical scope for such an organisation was reached at a meeting of scientists from Communist and non-Communist countries during the summer.

    The scientists recommended the establishment of 180 ground control posts, of which 24 should be in North America, six in Europe and 37 in Asia. One of the tasks of the present meeting will be to discuss how the posts should be staffed.

    The final object will be to prepare a treaty establishing the control organisation. If agreements have been reached on everything else it would be most unlikely that political objections would be raised from any quarter, including the United States to China's adhesion to it.

    The first meeting was on Oct. 31. the discussions were devoted to procedural matters.
