Allies First Reports from London have LAKE SUCCESS, Sept. 12. lff>) _ The United Nations Security Council approved Us annual report to the General Assembly today. A threatened Soviet veto failed to materialize. Soviet Delegate Jacob A. Mfl had vigorously opposed any reference to the Korean conflict hi the report and had argued it wa* subject to ttic veto, but when the ballot came he abstained. The action was taken at a clos-d tloor meeting of the council, the 500th since the It-nation body first met. in London In January, 1946. * public meeting was scheduled for this afternoon to hear the United States argue that Ihe Council should set up quickly an India- Sweden commission lo Investigate charges U.S. planes have strafed Red China territory north of the Korean border. But Malik, Sos'Iet delegate, was certain to demand priority for his resolution asking the U.N. to coti demn the United States because, he said, its plans have violated Chinese territory. Yesterday's vote was the closest Malik has come to winning, n almost a year, .some kind of victory for the Chinese Communists. Jihad demanded thai Red Chinese emissaries be permitted to sit yptc- le.ss ill the Council and make statements during Ihe debate on charges against the*U.S.—both on the plane charges and on a complaint to be taken up later that the U.S. is guilty of aggression against China because of Us Formosa policy .and action.

Egypt's hand went up < the, abstention count and R China had failed a^ain. Ended Debate The vote averted a long debate over whether T. F. Tsiang, Nationalist China delegate, would be allowed lo cast the veto he threatened If the proposal had received seven voles. Tstang "was ready to demand that his 'no" vote be counted as a veto because China Is a permanent menrtjer. Tsiang argued that Malik was trying to "smuggle in Communist China to double Ihe voice and votes of the Soviet Union" because the Russian failed to gel them membership in the Security Council when he returned from his boycott lo become council president Aug. l. Tsiang said Malik was trying to enhance the prestige and influence of the Soviet Union in the Far East by the Invitation, He said It, was a substantive question of the "highest political Importance"—lh hinting at a veto.
