I!M7 SINGLE COPIES FIVE CENTS U.S. and Russians' Jwap Blows Over Palestine Inquiry Both Sides, However, Exercise Care Not to Offend Jews or Arabs LAKE SUCCESS, N. Y., Mly 10. (UP)---The United States and Russia exchanged well-p:idded blows today over a Soviet attempt to rit- rect the fcrllicomhig United Nations Palestine inquiry to consider how lo cjive Ihe Holy Land independence "without delay." The United states opposed writing the Soviet proposal into the instructions being hammered out bv the UN General Assembly for the still-to-be formed commission of inquiry. "Placing ihis point in the instructions for the commission," said Deputy American Delegate Herschel V. Johnson, "might prejudge the work of the commission" He emphasized, however, that the United States wa s not taking "an intransigent position" in the matter and that it favored giving the commission full powers to consider early independence if it wants to. Soviet Delegate Andrei Gromyko differed with Johnson, however, t asked if there was anyone ng the delegates of 5i United j pns who denied that indepsncl-1 for Palestine's people should i te the ultimate goal. ! Russians Ask Quick Solution "This Soviet proposal would instruct the commission of inquiry to consider this as one of the possible solutions for the Palestine pro^em,' 1 Gromyko said. "It is n^t in any way trying to impose on the commission the study of only one solution." Johnson intervened again to cnmnlain that mentioning "inde- Mndcnco without delav" in the terms of reference for the commission u-ruid di^uliiv prejudice in favor of one solution. >He said m cmi"trv nr<j)"«ed Palestine independence at the proncr lime. >s of the two hie powers •r orders to nffenrl neither .T-n;^ nir Arabs durine the As- serrb'v's clrb^>n of the Holy Land ouestirm. spoke in concllifilorv ant! soft' lerms. The debate contraster shf.rnlv with the vocabulary often emnloved bv the United States and Russia h> eMier UN debates. India Offers Plan • " .India's Asaf All aruued in favor o's proposal, which he to a so-called comprom- ^ohitlon for the terms of reference nf the inquiry commission. The Indian proposal would, lik' other prcnosnls for terms of reference, aive the commission- wide powers to collect- and weieh facts in the Holv Land controversy, to call am- governments or agencies or individuals before it and to prepare proposals for solving the problem. Balancing his bid for Arab favor in pressing for mention of independence, Gromyko asked the Political Action Committee also to write into the terms of reference sp-rific authorization lor a study of "virioiis other issues" connected with the problem — a provision which would permit Investigation of the displaced persons camps in Europe and Jews desiring to go to Palestine. The American-Russian jockeying and Ilussia's desire to embarrass Ihe British were expected to push the political committee into the most basic debate of the emergency meeting.

Democrats Offer i New Labor Bill Surprise Action in Senate Delays Vote On GOP Measure WASHINGTON'. May 10.

John McClellan, D., Ark., which would deny Wagner Act recognition to any union with an officer who a member of the Communist Party. Klurray had 10 Democratic cosponsors on the bill, which was obviously doomed. A usually well- informed administration so'.irc: said the measure was not an administration bill but that an administration bill might bj .introduced if and when president Truman vetoes Republican legislation. •However, the 'Murray bill closely followed recommendation^ mode bv President rumiin in his state of the union messace .and bv Secrc- ary of Liibir Lewis B.
