France, Poland And Australia Agree To Probe Russia Stands Alone Now In Opposing Plan To Investigate Spain NFW YORK. April 20. (UP) — Australia, France nnd Poland reconciled their differences about n united Nations Security Council fnct-finding Investigation o f Franco Spain today but a Russian veto of any kind of an inqulry-lnstead of action—still threatened adoption of the new joint plan. Australia, France and Poland rc- pre.,e, lt ed the views of virtually Pll the other members nf the council except. Russia which stands alone nmoiiB the 11 members in opposition to n fact (IndiiiR resolution. Col. w. R. Hodgson of Australia, original proponent, of an Investigation of Spain before action is ta- Ken. announced th c Ihrcc-nntlon subcommittee's overnight ahcleve- mcrit. at the openinR of today's inccting. He read the new resolution condemning Franco Spain !mri creating a five-nation subcommittee to investigate the Franco regime and then the council recessed until Monday before voting on it. Some of the relief felt by the surprise agreement among Australia, France nnd Poland, wns eliminated, however, by Soviet rtelegnto Andrei A. Oromyko's Immediate reaction. Asked after the 14-mlmilr session whether he felt the same as. yesterday-opposed to any kind of an investigation of Spain in place of Iminedlnte' 1 action lip replied: "Exactly the srimc. T niarte my position -quite "clear yesterday I believe."' Tlie delegates of France. Australia and Poland met last night and this morning j,, nn effort to bring their differing views together The odds even late last night were against their efforts. But Hodgson's beaming face at the opening of today's meeting wa s In sharp contrast to the end of yesterday's meeting when there appeared to be no prospect of resolving the multitude of differences among even those members who wanted an investigation but disagreed on the type. There was one small ray or hope —that by th c time the council is ready to vote on thc new Spanish resolution Monday. Gromyko will have r'/eived new Instructions which will allow the council to adopt the resolution. The week-end recess will give him a chance to ask for new Instructions from Moscow—or Paris where the Big Pour foreigu ministers ure in session.
