PACfi TWELVE BJA'THKVILLK (ARK.) COURIER NEWS UN Powers Skip Palestine Debate Leaders Waiting To See Whether Arabs Are Bluffing B.v Robert Manning tfnik'd Press Staff Correspondent LAKE SUCCESS, N. Y., Dec. II, ((UP.I—Tlie big powers appeared today fo be dodging n United Nations Security Council debate of the Palestine problem until leaders of the Arab world show whether they are biuffine about waging war to block Holy Land partition. On Ihe suggestion of the United States and with the concurrence ol Russia, the Security Council has postponed indefinitely any discussion of its role in the forthcoming partition. American officials, asseitinn that it would be "extremely unwise" to conduct a full-fledged debate of - the partition scheme at this time, Indicated they wanted to sec the results of the current Arab League strategy huddle? in Cairo. Russia was believed li—fcij the same in view of Ihe repeated Arjju threats to thro\v-an army into Pat-- estinc if necessary to block fornu- tion of a Jewish state there. Postponement of tlie Palestine discussion was approved after the council agreed to let Egypt und Lebanon participate when the debate comes. Responsibility Issue Unsettled This assured at least three Arnb voices—counting Syria, a security council member — which will be rniscii against'any security council help for the partition profrnni.' The decision of the council also left hanging, the technical matter of whether y>e council will accept the responsibility for peace in the Holy Land. ; ., The responsibility includes tlu; task of stopping any international threat to peace growing out of the partition program, and of drafting some substitute plan for tlie Arabs of Palestine if they refuse to set up thetr half ot tlie new Palestine by next April 1. \ There were fe\v doubts that the council would accept its role in the partition plnn, but to some UN diplomats the delay in doing so decisively and speedily at yesterday's meeting was alarming. These ofiicial.s noted tliat there already have been reports from Palestine and London, none of thein officially confirmed, that the British arc considering evacuating trie Jafia-Tcl Aviv area—scene of the bloodiest Arab-Jew lighting over partition—at an early date.
