PA8I TWELVE YTHUVILLK, ,UKK.) CXJUKlii* Senate-House Group Urges UN 'Police Force' Voluitt*«n From Small Nations Would Combat Aggression WASHINGTON, Aug. 25, (/P)—A bi-purilun group of IB Senators »nd IS House members urged today th» establishment, of United Nation* police force, made up of volunteer* from small notions, to aid In combatting aggression. A> proposed by the sponsors of a resolution, to be introduced Inter in the day, the force would operate under an arrangement designed to prevent A Soviet veto of action to quell aggression. The plan was outlined at a news conference in the office of Senator Sparkman . (D-Ala), who was named by President Truman yesterday as a .United States delegate to the U.N. assembly meet- Ing next month. Sparkman declared there are "hundreds of thousands of volunteers throughout the world who want to join in the fight against the communist aseressors In Korea and'elsewhere." He said he didn't know whether it would be possible to get around a Soviet veto of Ihe proposal but "we must try." "Authority" Would Direct The proposed police force would consist of land, sea and air forces, directed by a nine-member "police authority"—three from the united States, three from the British commonwealth and France and three collectively elected by 'the smaller member states. Its decisions would be by simple majority vote. As the sponsors explained it, the Security Council could block decisions of the authority only by affirmative action. Thus the unlfed States would be In a position to veto any attempt In the council to eall off the police force. The resolution would leave the door open to Russian- membership, provided she met certain conditions men as accepting International control of atomic energy and agreed to a limitation on and inspection of armaments. Two resolutions were drafted in the house. One, by Rep. Judd (R- Minn) is identical with the Senate resolution. The other, prepared by Hep. Hays (D-Ark), la a slight modification.
