Despite Macmillan’s words, some suspicion persisted that the Brit ish leader might try to press Ei senhower too hard and too fast, in the administration opinion, along a path of meeting Soviet views. Macmillan was viewed at put ting more emphasis on the value of summit talks with Russia’s Premier Nikita Khrushchev than Eisenhower thinks developments warrant. Eisenhower expressed readiness to attend such a top level parley this summer—provided develop ments justified a promise of suc cess. In advance of Macmillan’s ar rival, officials stressed that Eisen hower wanted some advance signs of Soviet readiness to make con cessions—not a crisis conference full of pi'opaganda charges. Macmillan, however, was under stood to favor a summit meeting even if foreign ministers failed to ease East-West differences in ad vance. A meeting under such cir cumstances might be the only way to avoid a shooting war over Ber lin, British informants said.
