BANDUNG (Continued from Page !•> were Pakistan, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Iran an'd Turkey. All took the line that the U.N. resolution on Palestine, critical of Israel, be implemented. Prime Minister Nehru of Indin, eatd he supported the Arab resolutions and had sympathy for the "tragedy of Palestine refugees," but "we must consider what the conference can actually do aboul this problem. The question of negotiation should not be ruled out." The debate on human rights look place behind closed doors. Irnq, Lebanon, Pakistan, the Philippines and Thailand nil were reported pushing the move to adhere to the U.N. charter, with Ceylon.and Japan—nonmembers of the U.N.—backing them. Others Meet After private talks during a re cess failed to settle the dispute, the committee adjourned for lunch. The conference economic and cultural committees also met this morning. There was no Immediate word of their deliberations. 1 - Items of the aeven-point agenda coming within their province include cul tural cooperation and economic cooperation. Other agenda items, in addition to "human rights and self determination," include problems of dependent people, use of nuclenv energy, weapons of mnss destruction and promotion of world peace and cooperation. Presumably most or all of these will be considered by the political committee. The committees are scheduled to formulate communiques, in general terms, on each ngenria Hem. The conference then will agree to them unanimously. Indonesian Premier All Sastro- amidjojo told reporters that the length of the political committee session had resulted in postponement of another get - together scheduled this morning for Chou, the five "Colombo" premiers sponsoring the conference nnd other key delegation heads. The Indonesian did not say when the group would gather. Previously it had been reported that the conference sponsors hoped at such a private session to work out an agreed ban on the pro nouncemcnts for and against communism which generated .so much heat at the open plenary sessions yesterday and Monday. One report circulated that the sponsoring Colombo powers—India, Pakistan, Ceylon, Burma and Indonesia— alfio hoped to use the meeting to foster a private disc sion with Chou of the Formosa issue. However, the Chinese premier said in his policy speech yesterday that his government still considered Formosa "entirely a matter of our internal affairs and the exercise of our sovereignty."

Tin Uoftn MT WM fund requested. Aides said that was deliberate—that the administration feels It would be unwise to state its plans specifically nt this time. The President said the world cannot hope for enduring peace "until the spiritual aspirations of mankind for liberty and opportunity and growth are recognized as prior to nnd para mount to the material appetites which communism exploits." Stassen has been named by El- senhower to a 'icw position In an effort to v/ln enduring pence.

Jimmy Terry petitioned for annexation of 14 acres east of Highway 61 and west of the Frisco lines track in north Blytheville. The petition had approval of County Court and got Council's okay. In commenting on the work of organizing the southern sewer improvement district, Terry said It was somewhat surprising In that the less well-to-do property owners seemed more willing to sign than some of their wealthier neighbors. "All told, we had very few turndowns," he said. Although results ol the southern district have not been certified, Terry said, "We feel sure the legal goal has been reached." Petitions must be certified by abstractors, presented to Council and a hearing date set on formation of the district. Same procedure will be followed in organizing the northern district, once the petitions are signed. Rev. O. M. Sanford gave the invocation opening last night's meeting.
