PAGE FOURTEEN (ARK.)' COURIER Palestine Issue Again Delayed Navy PBY Falls fnfo Sea; Seven Of Crew Killed UN Complete Details On Partition Plans BT BICHAfcD WRKIN '(Date* rnm Staff Onrupcmfaiit), LAKE'SUCCESS, N. Y, Oct. 22. <TJP)—The United Nations Palestine Committee has decided, over Russian and United States opposition, to put off a showdown vote on partition until detailed plans are completed. The tommittee met today to put finishing touches on an approved plan to split into »t least three tub- committees to deal with separate aspects of jthe Intricate problem. The group must agree on the size and composition of separate sub-groups to fill out the majority plan for partition, lo reconcile Arab proposals lor a single Arab-Jewish state, and to attempt to conciliate Arab and Jewish stands. Proposals for two additional subcommittees remained to be voted ' on. Colombia suggested a group to handle resolutions for dealing with refugees and displaced i»rsons and the Arab states plumped for a group k> consider whether the general assembly has the right in the first place to make recommendations on Palestine's future. The, vote to skirt an immediate decision on the partition principle »nd to set up three subcommittees constituted at least a procedural victory for the Arab states, since their proposals tor a single bi-national state will be considered on an equal footing with (lie majority partition plan. In moving for the Immediate vote on partition, Russian delegate Semen K. Tsarapkln said the Pales 1 tine committee then would need to create only one sub-group to thrash out the matter of implement- tag partition. Motion is Defeated The motion was defeated 26 to 14. Russia and the United States found themselves in agreement on a major issue—but on the losing side. France and China voted with the majority. Britain abstained. The rare spectacle of Russian- American agreement last throughout the votes on the separate subgroups. Not a single nation objected to creation of the conciliation group, and doubtless not a. single nation expecled the group to Imve any substantial success. No one voted against the subcommittee on the majority partition plan, but eight nations— mostly Arab states—abstained rather than Join the other 35 in voting yes. There was an amusing incident when an assistant sitting behind CamMle Chamoun of Lebanon tried to pull his hand down to prevent him from voting in the majority. He stuck to his decision. Ten nations — including Russia and the United States—voted against establishing a group to consider Arab proposals for a unitary, state. Thirtj voted yes; sin abstained. Great Britain, whose announced Intention of pulling out of Palestine has greatly complicated thn matter .of enforcement of a UN recommendation, took no part in the day's debate and abstained on all yotes New York Man Arrested For Taking Baby Into Bar NEW YORK, Oct. 22. (UP)—Wll- ford St. Denis, 38, was held by police today for endangering the life ol an Infant that he found abandoned and took into a bar with him while he had~an eyeopener. " A woman customer in the bar | became so outraged when she saw St. Denis enter and place the baoy on a bar stool that she called the police. St. Denis told police that he was making a round of bars with a woman companion early yesterday •when they found the baby'crying in a church vestibule—he couldn't remember what 'church. They, took the Infant to a hotel and stayed up with it all night, he said, caring for it. In the morning, the couple v^ere still undecided what to do with the child and stopped in the bar for a drink to clear their heads, St. Denis told police.
