N. Y., Sept. 16. (UP) — The -srcontl Gcnrral Assembly of the United Nations opened in a tense atmosphere of diplomatic strain between Russia and Hie United States "nd was immediately warred that it faced tile chance between roads to war and peace. Former Brazilian Foreign Minister Oswaldo Aranha gaveleri the crucial meeliiifr lo order a few minute.i after upsetting united Slates plans to support Australia's tough-talking Foreign Minister Herbert V. Evatl for the presidency, Tho Latin American Nations revolted against the U. S. and derided lo support Arantm and make a contest of it. Aranha was president of the social assembly on Palestine aad wilt preside until the election this afternoon. The assembly hall wns filled to capacity for the first session devoted to Arahna's o]x?ning address and New York Mayor William O'- Dnycr'.s welcome. The Saudi Arabian native robes and while burnooses and the colorful flowing gcwns of Uin Indian women delegates gave a touch of color to the modernistic assembly hall. •Aranlia bluntly announced the major concern of every delegate this meeting—whether the world is to have peace or war—in hi: address. Without incnlioniilg the licrcc diplomatic \var between the United States and Russia, he appealed for understanding and reason instead of armed forces in seeking a settlement of the difficulties Ijclwccn "souic" nations. He pleaded with the delegates— many of whom lalk about the inevitability nf war between East and West—lo rivndemn and reject the very thought of war. O'Dwyrr told the delegates of 55 nations that those who'-Jived through two wars have a, "sense' of urgency" - about finding a workable solution for peace. He offered his city's cooperation in- helping the United Nations make itself "a permanent and enduring reality" 'The .agenda contains a grcal maiyy, ileuis," Aranha said.

Strikes in Italy Endanger Nation Fear of Revolution Grows as 850,000 Metal Workers Quit KOME. Kept. Hi. ( ;ii>) _ t strike by B50.000 Italian mcta Corkers brought open talk of revolutionary activity for Ihe firs time today, but Leftist loaders disclaimed any intention of Iryini; In seize power by force The Catholic News Agency AR said reports of expected "Insurrectional movements throughout It nly" next .Saturday duriiiK Leftist sponsored protests against the gov eminent had been "exhaustive!; commented upon In responsible no litical circles." The strike of the metal workers wns called for two days as a protest against the high cost of living. It also demonstrated Communism's grip on Italian labor. Some 1.000 Roman police went on "maneuvers" and will go through exercises South of Rome through tomorrow. Police headquarters said the drills were intended lo - "determine the slate of preparation of the police." Communist. Socialist and labor federation spokesmen afireeit in the leftists had hccti loyinc with veiled hints of using force against the government for more than a week. A strike of I.OOO.GOD farm workers vas in its eight day when the me;al workers walked out. despite all government attempts to dlsuadn ;hem. Although the metal .workers' strike was supposed to last only dayfi, it will do nothing to reduce p ilow riEriictlon program. '".The gciieral coVif«d«ration of la-1 tar which is run by the commimi- •kis. called • both the farm workers' I and metal workers'strikes. The communist controlled General Confederation of Labor also threatened lo call a strike of 2,- 130.0GO tobacco, railroad, textile and state workers. Government officials said tlic strikes and threats ol" strikes, were being used by Communist Leader ralmiro Togliatti to force the fall of Premier Alcidc de Gaspcri's cabinet. De Oasperi put the communists out of liis cabinet three-and-a- half months ago, because nu a- greetncnt could be had as long as they were in it. Toglmlli. who spent 19 years In Moscow, has been clamoring lo get his party buck, in. but his lalk has not produced any results. The mclal workers, whom tin: government vaily tried to keep al work, said their strike would be ;or only two days-. But it will strike i sore blow at Italian industry, particularly in Milan and Turin. Their compliant was the high cost of living. Rice Harvest Handicapped The farm workers strike, now ,ts eighth day was more serious. Italy's 500.000-ton rice crop is ready :o be harvested and unless It i.? soon brought in. il may be scverclj damaged. The. independent nEwsnayiev MC.R- gcrro warned: "before Italy can get any cereals from the world pool, she has been told lhat she must fully utilize her own resources. The request for 30.000,000 tons of grain from abroad docs not go well with this strike." So far. the farm strike has principally alicclcd the North.
