Y., May 13. (UP) —The Arab stales were defeated today in two more attempts to force the United Nations to consider the Independence of Palestine and a spokesman threatened that, llicy might walk out of UN "so far as Palestine is concerned.' ' 'Die political Committee of Hie General Assembly slapped dov,'n proposals by Russia, nnd Poland which would have Instructed the UN -Palestine inquiry commission to consider c.slablishing an "independent democratic .stale of Palestine." In view of the action there was speculation that the five .Arab Mates might stage their protest demonstration today. They apparently had lost their last chance to hu-lude the independence issue in the Instructions for tlic Palestine inquiry. F.iri s El Khourl of Syria, considered spokesman, for the Arab bloc, said the Arab stiites were considering a jiolicy of "noii-cooper- ntion" if they were not Riven their way. He claimed the IfN Pales line probe coukl not. possibly suc- '•tci'cd if the Arabs did not coopcr- «\ile. ;jfcToday's voting closely followed ™e trend set yesterday when the Political Committee voted not '.o iusfruct the inquiry commission to consider Palestine's independence. The committee still faced a fight over the makeup of the Palestine Commission with the United states and Russia opposed on whether the Bii; Five should be included on ft •Most of the delegates appeared to favor the American plan for commission of seven small, "neutral states." Russia arguco witl unusual meekness for the bi^ powers and one. .Arab state on tin commission. The disagreement was the on!) obstacle to early adjournment, of the General Assembly's 16-day-old emergency session on Palestine as the Political Committee, a 55-nation duplicate of the full assembly, convened at 11 a.m. EDT. for another all-day meeting. The Western countries stilt had to tie up loose ends of a major victory they scored "yesterday when the committee decided to strike out of its instructions for. the.'Pales- line inquiry commission a reference to "Independence" as the ultimate eo-U of any plan for the Holy L'lpi's future. The^action was la'^- cn over opposition of the Arab and Slav states in one of the neatest bits of parliamentary inane vcring yet witnessed in the UN.
