XLIV—NO. 131 Brylheville Dally News Blytheville Courier Blylheville Herald Mississippi Valley Security Council Rejects'Deal'by Colonial Powers Belgian Proposal Seeking a Court Ruling is Defeated LAKE SUCCESS, N. Y., A life'. 2C. (U.P.)—The United Nations Security Council rejected today an attempt by colonial powers to obtain a world court ruling on the UN's right to intervene in tlie Dutch-Indonesian conflict. A Belgian proposal to lay tlie question of UN jurisdiction before the International Court of Justice was voted down. after liussia. Poland, Australia and china condemned it as a move to delay (,r lirevent further' UN action in tjie fighting between the Dutch and Indonesian Republicans. Other four countries -the United States. Britain, France and Belgium-supported the Belgian resolution. Poland voted against it while Russia, china Austral!::, Syria, Colombia and' Brazil abstained from voting. The Council thus asserted its right to take further steps in the Indonesian dispute if its latest intervention fails. The action established an important precedent for the council, which doubtless will be confronted many limes in the Culiirc with cases of conflict between independence - seeking colonial peoples and the governments which rule them. The vote came shortly after the Indonesian Republic formally ac- ccplcrt the Security Council's offer of its "good offices" to help both sides iron out their differences and end their conflict in Java ami Sumatra. One of the Belgian proposals was scrapped-killed by lack of majority support rather than by negative voles—Poland put into formal language its demand for renewal of the council's 26-day-old cease- fire order to Dutch ""'and Indonesians. Poland's Jnliusz Katz-Suchy said that despite the council action of Aug. 1, one side or the other hart broken the uneasy truce and plunged the area into hostilities once more. The republics' acceptance of the council's plan to have the career counsuls maintained by six or the 11 nations on the council supervise conformance with the unsuccessful UN cease-fire order of Aug. The republics' acceptance of the Security Council's compromise plan for ending the hostilities left the next move up to the Netherlands, which was expected to an- 1 nouiicc soon its reluctant acceptance or the council's offer of its "good offices."

'• ' ° McCloy told a news conkrc-.iee that Britain so far has not apiilM for a loan from the $8,000.000000 world bank. There has been considerable i.pe- culation lhat she would do so in a further effort to' bolster her sagging economy. Britain last week obtained modification of some of the terms of the U.

McCloy said that in his opinion Britain Is aware of her problems, is analyzing them, and is facing them realistically. "The' British are a sturdy people. poscssed of good business sense, and their internal - budgetary Equation is good." he said. "And anyway. history dictates it Is unwise to write off the BrlUsh too quickly."

A civil war in Paraguay was the reason for tho Kimeses' decision to come back lo the United Stales aflcr two years ill South America. But nil regular means of transportation out of the capital city were closed and to get out. they had to cross the river into Argentina, where they boarded a plane at Buenos Aires for New Orleans.

The Barhams met their niece and her husband in Memphis. Excitement? The Kimeses have seen plenty for the past several months. One day the police in Asuncion stopped Mr. Klmes and not recognizing his American identification card, marched him to th« Jnil with guns nt his buck, "How- ever," Mrs. Klines added, "when we went into Argentina, they mistook him for Ihe American ambassador and Ireatcd us royally.
