MONDAY, APRIL 12, 1948 ELYTHF.VII.I.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS U.S. to Offer Holy Land Truce Plan Proposal it Final <| : Attempt Before UN Assembly Meets By Robert Manning (Unll«d Prwa Staff Correspondent) NEW YORK, April 12. (UP)—The United States will present to United Nations diplomats today specific proposals for »n immediate truce in the bloody fighting between Arabs and Jews of Palestine. The American suggestions will open a last-ditch attempt by the United States to quit the Holy Land before the General Assembly convenes In emergency session Friday to attempt a fresh solution of the Palestine problem. American officials said American Delegate Warren Austin, would have some "concrete" truce suggestions at t private meeting of Security Council delegates. The session was called by Austin for 8 a. m. GST in his Manhattan offices. Austin reportedly was hopeful that a truce would be reached despite the fiim refusal by both sides to alter their conflicting conditions for a halt in the fighting. 4b£rab officials, it was learned, are- 'Islanding that the UN or Britain disband the Jewish underground Haganha army and ship illegal Jewish immigrants out of Palestine before firing ceases. Jews have demanded some assurances that a truce does not Involve abandonment of the UN's Palestine partition program. The United States and a majority of UN countries were unwilling to give this guarantee, however, since the United States already has abandoned Its support for partition and proposed Instead in indefinite UN trusteeship for Palestine. Only Four Dajrj Remain The Security council had only four days In which to work out a truce before the general assembly convenes. In that same brief period, the United States faced the difficult Job of rallying »t least some Security Council backing for Its trusteeship program. So far only vague outlines of the trusteeship plan have been unveiled by the United States but reliable sources have said it principal purpose is to keep the Holy Land within the strategic control of the Western powers. J ce the Assembly convenes on ly mornlngr, the 57 UN count-1 vill have only 29 days in which w> imd a substitute for Britain's rule over Palestine. The British are getting out on May 15. wheather or not the UN is ready with a new administration. Many UN diplomats doubted that the assembly could agree on a trusteeship or any other solution and get It into anything resembling working shape by May 15. For that reason, there was increasing pressure on British authorities to remain longer In the Holy Land, giving the UN opportunity to work out a new formula or, If that fails, to revive the dying partition program.
