Aug. -23. </P) _ Two striking rail unions promised for the time being" today to keen their (oken walkouts from spreading into a tleup ol nationwide proportions.

Malik declared. The United States has demanded that U.N. members work lo localize the Korean war and llial Ihe North Koreans withdraw (o the 38(h parallel. Russia has called for withdrawal of all foreign troops from Korea. In a 48-minule altack Ihe Russian accused the United States aided by Great Britain, of waging an "open armed aggression against the Korean people and other aslatlc people who struggle [or their Independence and national sovereignty." The U.S., he asserted, attempts "to cover up this aggression with the label of the flag of the united Nations." "No Action- U was Ihe ninth "no action" session of the council since Malik ended the seven-month Soviet boycott and took over the group's presidency Aug. i. His term ends Aug. 31. Both [;. s. representative Warren Austin and Britain's Sir Oladwyn Jebb In reply charged Afallk with using Hitlerian propaganda techniques. The Russian charge, said Austin. >s "a lie. a big lie." Jebb termed Malik's statement » "giaf>t»itic falsehood," adding that In propa- ;anda, 'the bigger the falsehood two steel-currying their course. railroads have the belter the chance a has of being believed." Austin said Malik w»s employing Hitler's (rick of "conceiiling guilt by accusation." Jchb recalled that Slnlin In io3 S mul charged France and Britain with attacking Ger- 'nnny.

The Russian In his lengthy review of the Soviet version of the Korean war. chraged that the "Am- crcian bloc," headed by the United States and Britain, was "attempting to achieve not a peaceful sei- tlcmeni ol the Korean question, but a broadening of the scale of American aggression against the Korean people and the transfor mation of the United Nations Into an obedient tool of the aggressive policy of the American ruling circles." The North Koreans and Ihelr supporters, he declared, hail made the Korean conflict "a popular war. a holy war for liberty and unity for the Independence of Korea."
