I..AKK SUCCESS, N. Y., Dec. 11. —(UP)—Great nrllnin, [lie United Slates and Russia anrccd tentatively toctay lo drop their de- iiiniids for si troop and armaments census In favor o( a broadened proKiam for the united Nations to lake immefftalc .steps to reduce aims, ban atomic bombs, withdraw troops from foreign soil and es- lablish international controls. In a compromise engineered by the General Assembly president Paul-Henry Spaak of Belgium, the UN members would be called upon to take up nt once the problem of world disarmament. nil: Three representatives acrecd to Hie move tentatively, but explained that they would have to consult with their delegations be fore finally pledging their govern mrnts' support. 'Hie new proposal would call up on (he security council and UN members to report to the Genera Assembly next year the steps taken to: 1. Establish international troop and. armaments Inspection aben cics. 2. Draft, a treaty for outlawing of atomic energy for militarj purposes. 3. withdraw their troops from former enemy states and fron fiicndly .states in cases where the; were stationed there without per mission O f (lie country concerned. 4. Establish a general and "bal anccd" program of arms reduction The plan would be added to i Partly-drafted resolution callhl; upon the Security Council lo diaf a program of arms reduction am enforcement measures, and t sprcd work on an agreement I outlaw atomic weapons. U. S. Delegates Busy Sir Hartley Shawcross of Bri lain nnd Deputy Foreign Mlnlstc Andrei vlsliinsky or Russia declar crt themselves "agreed in prlnci pie", on tile program. Sen. Ton Conhally. D.. Tex., indicated lha, lic \vould ask the U. S. delegation to support the proposal. Under the new -formula, Russia would drop its demand for a census of troops stationed abroad and Ihc U. S. and Britain would drop their counter-moves for a report on troops at home. Britain i);o would drop its.demand for international verification of the troop figures furnished. The new proposal would not call for immediate publication of atomic bomb secrets or the number of A-bombs .the U. S. has. It would, however, call upon the security council (o rush \vork.oii a plan for atomic control. The American atomic energy plan would call eventually — but only eventually — for revealing atomic secrets. Russia has wanted an early prohibition of atomic armaments, and the destruction of stockpiles. These differences would have to be ironed out as a "detail" under the atomic control program. The agreement in principle came In ii closed meeting of the draft- inn uronp. but it will be debated publicly later today by an 18-na- lion Political and Security subcommittee. Spaak Offers Compromise Spaak told the delegates that I he "troops on foreign soil" issue had become "hopelessly embroiled" in the general arm's reduction problem. His compromise bid came after tlclesflles Mad debated for nearly three hours what one delegate termed "an historic move" to permit nn International agencv to cn- Icr any country at any "time lo check up on national troops and armaments. The compromise proposal followed a Joint Anglo-Russian demand for an immediate check of the world's armaments. Including the American stockpile of atomic bombs. The proposal was handed t o a United Nations disarmament stib- commillce which Is working on a blueprint for worldwide reduction of arms and armies.
