Fast would not confirm such reports. It was understood here lhat su»- cestion.s for reopening the entir* Palestine partition issue had cm-' lied up in the current ronMiUatio. 1 between President Truman and, his cabinet. Thev must decide soon ' whether the United Slates will back dispatch of a UN armv to the Holv land to oppose the Arabs if they open their threatened war against Partition Would Avoid Warfare Oil men, involved in the Middle East ferment to the extent of billions of dollars in petroleum Interests, were said to want, a settlement which \vould si'old warfare and at the same time avoid the sending of any UN nrmy—and especially one with American troops —lo the Middle East. Oil companv officials conceded that such a solution probablv would I require modification of the UN partition program. Tt was pointed out bv qualified persons that representatives of American oil comnantes with interests In Arabian oil would be amon? the most effective negotiators with Arab leaders, who are owners of the strategic Middle East oil dems- it.s and also Ihe leaders nr the violent opposition to nartition. Many Cnmnanle* Interested Amonij the American comnanies most deenly in'erested in Middle Eastern oil are the Arabian-American Oil Co.. which is unrlcrtakinij the big pipeline proiect In Snudi Arabia- standard Oil of New Jersey. Socony-Vacuimi anrf Texas- Oalifornla. standard of New Jersey and Soconv are negotiating to buv Into Arabian-American. Jews and other suooorters of partition have scoffed nt the contention that continued American support of partition would provoke the Arabs into shutting off the flow of oil into Britain and the United State* and would send it to Russia. They snv the Arab leaders would never turn to Moscow and would not deliberately '• stop their own income. : Reports from Washington have Indicated, however, 'hat officials in: the State Department and the '. armed services have injected that] contention into the administration debate over American policy. The dean .of Arab tiinlomal-s at Hie UN, Fans el Khouri of Syria, said tbe Arabs had not initiated any j attempt to reopen the partition ' question. i He said, however, he had "heard ' talk" or such efforts and that tbe i Arab states probably would not : oppose such a step.
