Y., April 2 (/p)_Britain turned the explosive Palestine problem over to the United Nations today and formally requested that a special session of the General Assembly be called immediately to launch preliminary studies. Acting Secretary-General Vic-tot Hoo started the machinery moving at once. Soon after he had received the British note. Hoo sent a telegram to each of the 55 member nations asking whether they approved the calling of an extraordinary .session. Approval by 2S members was necessary. The British request was contained in a two-paragraph note which in effect passed on to the "United Nations the full responsibility for finding a remedy for the 25-year-old headache. The note asked that: 1. The Palestine virobiem be placed on the agenda of the General Assembly for its regular September meeting. 2. A special session be called "as soon as possible" to 'create a special investigating: committee to prepare a suggested solution for consideration at the September meeting. •>. And finally that the. Assembly make recommendations "concerning the future government of Palestine.'' The note was handed to Andrew W. Cordier. executive assistant to Secretary-General Trygve Lie, in the delegates' lounge at 3:05 p. m. (EST) by Valentine Lawford, deputy to British Delegate Sir Alexander Cadogan. The action lias been foreshadowed as early as last Februar 11 when British Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin informed Jewish and Aral) representatives in London that Britain would make no further efforts to negotiate a settlement. of strife in the League of Nations mandate territory, but (Continued on Page 2) County Legislation Reviewed By Senator County Can Build Roads With Funds On Non- Contract Basis Three important county n ties- lions were answered and several city issues were settled through action of the State Legislature during the recent .session. Senator D. Kenneth McLaughlin reported yesterday. Principal county bills passed referred to County Roads Department, the Sheriff's office and the school program. Under the terms of a state-wide measure passed. McLaughlin explained, the Board of County Commissioners through the Roads Department, can now use federal and other roads funds for building county roads on a non-contract basis. In the past such funds could only he used by the county for roads if the work was done by contract and under specifications of the State Roads Commission. Past restrictions had caused the county to reconsider its plans for building •'farm to market" roads under the federal aid program due tr> the fact that the work would allegedly cost more than if done directly by the County Roads Department. Sheriff's Salary The County Sheriff will now get a direct salary of $3.000 per ye'ar. together with an allowance of"$300 for autn expenses, under terms of another state bill passed. Sheriffs deputies will be placed on fixed salaries. In the past the county officers were paid at the discretion of the sheriff by means of various (Continued on Page 2) Plan Allows UN To Halt Greek - Turk Aid Program Senate Committee Agrees On Proposal Provided United Nations Willing To Give Help Meeting Called Harmonious By JACK B£LL Washington, April 2 (/?)—A plan empowering the United Nations to halt American aid to Greece and Turkey—provided U. N. is willing to give such aid itself—was reported agreed upon "in principle" today by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. After a closed session of the committee, a member told reporters the agreement had been reached, but he added that the exact wording O f the amendment to President Truman's proposed $400,00.,000 aid program was still undecided. Senator Vandenberg (R-Mich) declined comment, except, to say it was a "very harmonious meeting." Vandenberg suggested Monday that the U. N. be given power to halt the American program, by a majority vote of the General "Assembly or a seven-of-eleven vote of the Security Council. The proviso that t^e'u. X. most be willing to start such a project itself was a new development today. A committee member who preferred to remain anonymous said the proviso had been worked out by the committee from suggestions made by Dean Acheson, Undersecretary of State. "What we are trying to say this amendment," the committeeman said, "is that the United Nations can stop the American assistance program only if it is ready to take over. That means the program would continue, in any event." The program, involving relief and limited military assistance, designed to bolster Greece and Turkey against Communism. In an earlier session today, the Seziate committee voted to require Senate confirmation for the chiefs of the proposed missions to Turkey and Greece. It also voted to bar use of American funds to pay off old debts of the two countries.
