^THURSDAY, AUGUST 31, 1050 Malik's Term as UN Group Head Ends KlttUr D»*v»*.____ J~ t ' '. ; •• • ' BLYTHEVTLLE,, (ATtK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN New Propaganda Blasts Expected In Final Round Bjr STANLEY JOHNSON LAKE sucgpss, Aug. 31. w Jakob A, Malflc's month as president of the United Nations Secur- Ivy. Council ends today. the (1 days of August the an delegate has used tlie pres- icy to hamstring council con- •iderntloii of the Korean war and explode propaganda blasts agnlnst the United States and the other Western democracies. Observers expect him to (ire his biggest gun at today's session (2 p.m. EST) but don't know what ne'll use (or ammunition. They are sure, however, that Malik will not turn over the chair to Britain's suave Sir Gladwyn Jebb, September president, without one finil propaganda barrnge. Malik has Indicated he will continue to attend council meetings alter his presidency "ends. But informed quarters point out that, his freedom to obstruct council business will be,c"r»-iled with a Westerner In the chair. Two Hems for Agenda The Russian yesterday asked tVmt two new items—"unceasing terror- Ism nnd mass executions in Greece," and Red Chinese (targes of American bombings in Manchuria — be puL on the agenda. Malik, as council president, is expected to give the floor to Malik, the Soviet delegate, for an elaboration of these charges at today's meeting. The ensuing wrangling probably will keep the council again from Betting down to business on the resolution it Is ostensibly dlscussing- •fcAmerlcan motion aimed at lo ^Bilng the Korean war. Malik's move to have the council discuss the situation in" Greece, where the government suppressed a; four-year Communist-led rebellion last year, took diplomats by surprise. Greek 1916 Question The Greek situation was first taken up by the council In London In 1946. It was dropped In 1947 and handed over to the general assembly, where It has been on the agenda every year since. The Manchurian complaint, how- •ver, had been anticipated In connection with Red China's previous charges of U. S. aggression li, Formosa which the council voted Tuesday to put on the agenda. The U. S. had been so sure Malik would refer to the charges of American bombings in Manchuria that It circulated a letter Tuesday denying any knowledge of such bombing* and saying It would welcome a U. N.. on-the-spot Investigation. Council Consideration Council consideration of the charges became almost .inevitable l||l. night when the Communist Pei- flrfe radio broadcast specific nccu- Mtloni of a raid by American fighter planes on Manchuria which allegedly took place Tuesday. The broadcast included an appeal for U N action and said a cable to that effect had been sent to Malik It was unlikely, however that the council majority would permit either of the two new proposed items to be discussed at length before it acts further on the Korean problem Jebb takes over as president Friday. The council then can move ahead faster than while Malik was at its head, but probably not as fast us It did while the Russian boycotted the body's meetings.
