(U.P.) reat Britain gave a cool recep- today to American proposals to partition Palestine by next July 1 without providing troops, lo enforce the split. British spokesmen at United Nations complained that the American plan would leave Great Britain to maintain order alone up until the minute that the Holy Land Is divided into independent Jewish and Arab states. The British feared that partition would be preceded by a great deal of Jewish-Arab violence, and thot British troops would be among the .casualties. The United States plan, presented to a UN subcommittee, dropped the previous suggestion that an international police force be recruited to maintain order. American Delegate Hershel Johnson said that Great Britoin which has ruled Palestine for 25 years under a League of Nations mandate, was obligated to stay until it can leave the country in peace, not chaos. July I date for . partition id independence was the ear]icst yet suggested. Regardless of Palestine's fate, said Johnson, the British could not gt»- their 80.000 troops out of the. Holy Land any sooner. He proposed that the' UN General Assembly name a three-.riaii commission to work with the British in establishing Jewish and Arab governments which could take ovcr when the British left. Otherwise, there 'would be no UN supervision except In the case of outright war. partment. The report presents in detail the production possibllillcs, needs and schedules for the proposed four- year plan which Congress will be asked lo finance. Marshall, back from thc .United Nations meeting n New York, is putting the finishing touches on the recommendations which the administration will present to congressional committees on Nov. lo— a week In advance of the' special session. The second volume report coming • ™'" last Summer's Paris conference of the Western European nations points out that the United States already has provided $7,800,000000" In qrants and loans to the participating nations, but adds"The setback In Industrial pro- rtuctioji in m an y countries during the Winter of 1946-47 has made it evident that this large volume of external assistance was not cnouch to ensure lasting recovery Shortages of coal and electric power com^ bined with.a severe Winter were the i most important reasons for this " Sted f .'-om rising Control of Rents Faces Extension Labor Unions Hail Resignation of Director Creedon WASHINGTON.

Few Rental Unite Built There was some speculation that Woods was not the president's permanent choice for the post, and that a "big-name" administrator might be appointed later. Woods said Ln an interview that production of- housing for rent had "railed miserably" and that as things now stand he probably will recommend that Congress extend the rent law. It is due to expire March 1. He said early returns Trom local rent boards show plainly that "the people themselves believe continued controls are necessary." or some 75 local board proposals received by Ihe rent director to date, all but 20 urged that present ceilings be retained. Woods said he hopes that "the words oJ the local boards will sell Congress on rent controll." Though the rent law gives the local boards considerable authority, Woods, emphasized that their recommendations will not necessarily be taken "at race value;" Members or his staff, he said, are being sent to committees where general rent .increases hive been proposed. They will gather the facts, and each case will be judged on its merits. Where decontrol is suggested, he said, the local board must show 2FromMtssco Face Charges In Tennessee An Osceola man today faces trial ties.
