Mar- 15. (up) -U. S, support of chile's charges that Russia engineered the Communist eoup in Czcclioslova- . fcia virtually guaranteed today Ilia the issue would IK aired before thi United Nations Security Council. An official source disclosed yes lerday that the United states would hack up Chile's demands for a de bate on the C/ech issue and littl_ difficulty was expected in lining up the seven votes necessary to have the matter brought before the c|un cil. Britain, Prance, Belgium, ani probably Colombia, Argentina an Syria were exacted lo follow thi country's lead. The Czech issue, which will con front the United Nations with crisis far graver than that present ed by the Iranian case two year ayo. or the current troubles ove partitioning Palestine, was sehe duled to come before the comic Wednesday. Some officials believed th Czech debate would determine whether the UN remains an international organization or is transformed into a Western nnti-Russian coalition. While a decision to give the charges a full hearing would not committ the United States or other Security Council members to any given course of action, it would be the signal for a verbal battle between Ru-ssia and the Western powers. ^Whether the United States would ^f further and support some sort of security council intervention in the Czech case—a commission of investigation, for example, or a resolution of condemnation--was not clear. Tile American UN delegation and the State Department were believed lo have some double about whether the Security Council can take any such action In the case without infringing on the most jealously-guarded article in the UN charter. That is the article which prohibits the UN from meddling in the domestic affairs of any sovereign nation. J.S.
