POTSDAM SPELLBOUND

Sensational Labour Victory Crashes Holiday Calm

MR. NEW ROTjE Rec. 10.30 a.m. LONDON, July 26. The Potsdam delegates were spellbound at the news of Labour's election triumph in Britain, says the Associated Press correspondent. The sensational victory crashed through the holiday calm and produced the year's political sensation among the delegations of the three Great Powers. The first impression was that the new Prime Minister, Mr. Attlee, would extend to Mr. Churchill an invitation to return as a member of the delegation, but few seemed to think the latter would accept. It is believed that Mr. Attlee will return within two or three days or that the conference recess will become a formal adjournment. Reuters correspondent says there is little doubt that Mr. Attlee, whose presence at Potsdam was dictated by the necessity to cover the contingency which has now arisen, will be able to take the talks forward from the point where Mr. Churchill relinquished them.
