Russia wants "a finger iti Uie pie" In the Holy Land without shouldering any immediate or clear-cut responsibility. 4. Russia needs oil and a part in the future of Palestine could bs Ihe start of gradually growing Russian Middle East. 5. Since its beginning, Soviet foreign policy has emphasized coa- t-em for minority groups, like the heavily outnumbered Jews in Palestine and Ihc homeless Jews in European displaced persons 'camps. Most TJM diplomats appeared confident the UN could bring about 4 partition without inciting full- scale hostilities in the Middle EuL;t if the United States and Russia stick together. They were not so confident, however, about the per- nianc'iice of the partnership if and when trouble in Palestine forces the controversy into the UN .security council. A proposal to send American or j state nnd federal constitutions, British forces to keep peace in Ilia Middle East probably would be unacceptable to Russia. And it is not likely that the Western powers will approve any move to let Russia police Palestine by herself.

These would keep tin commission from enforcing its order, keep the commission from in- terlering if the company f;o»'* ahead and collects the higher rates and to keep the commission from levying penalties against the company for collecting higher rates. The company's trip to Chancellor Wade'.s. court had been expected since the Nov. 6 order WHS issued. In asking the Chancellor to take over the case through a writ ol' certiorari, the company charged that the commission's order denying the rate increase had the effect of confiscating the company & property in violation of both the break up over the rich oil fields of the Middle East. For decades Russia has hoped to cut into the American-British monopoly on oil from that corner ot the world and assure a permanent supply Cor herself.

Primary Ticket Seeking 19th Term in City Office PRESCOTT, Ark,, Dec. 2. (UP)— The way has been paved for a-decision 011 Dec. 15 by Prescott Democratic voters as to whether or not Mayor R. P. Hamby will have a 19th term. Hamby and Curtis Ward are the only candidates who remain in the running for the office, following yesterday's preferential primary. The two men were only four votes apart, with Ward's 290 taking the the Russians' desire for oil. New tension has developed in Iran over the Teheran government's refusal to grant Russian oil concessions. Trouble which carried Soviet through with politics, but friends first renominated him, and he promised __;e. R. T. Murry, who got 164 voles, was eliminated. Hani by became mayor in 1912. This year he announced he was troops into Palestine for the time would expose vital Anglo- \ American oil facilities to interference by or, in the event of major trouble, seizure by Russian forces. With little difficulty, it would be possible to cut or take over the vital pipeline carrying oil of the Iran petroleum company across Syria and northern Palestine into the Jewish port of Haifa. One branch / of this line runs into Tripoli and another has been planned for a stretch of land in Lebanon barely 30 miles north of Palestine's bor-T der. Syria's government has tentatively approved construction of another pipeline through Syrian territory by the American-controlled Trans- Arabian pipeline, but American support for partition threatened to turn Syrians against that project Tn such an event, the Haifa' link to serve if elecled.
