In making decisions from offering jobs in his Cabinet to negotiating treaties with foreign powers--White House aides try always to follow one rule: Never put the President in a position where he is publicly rebuffed. Monday night, that rule was broken in the most public of circumstances: In the bright spotlight of an international summit meeting, President Bush went into a one-on-one meeting with Soviet President Mikhail S. Gorbachev expecting to get public endorsement for a tough new U.N.

The foreign ministers of 35 European and North American nations agreed here Thursday to set up a new emergency procedure that will let a handful of members call a meeting to consider situations that might endanger peace.

If Germany was the most important topic at the U.S.-Soviet summit, it was also the one that President Bush and Soviet President Mikhail S. Gorbachev did the least to resolve. And in putting the issue aside, they postponed coming to grips with the sometimes unwelcome implications of their own policies. Bush held to his position, supported by all his NATO allies as well as half the nations of the collapsing Warsaw Pact, that a united Germany should be a full member of NATO.
