THURSDAY APRIL 8,1954 BLYTHEV1LLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWg PAGE FIVE UN Starts Debate on Israeli-Arab Border Raids UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. WJ—. The IS.vs. Security Council turned today to a debate that may lead to a general review of murderous Israeli-Arab border raids in Palestine. The council agenda listed rival Lebanese and Israeli complaints but Western members hoped to l*»np them together as one item. Council president for this month is Andrei Y. Vishinsky of the Soviet Union, who twice this year has vetoed Western-backed Palestine resolutions that the Arabs disliked . Two ambassadors to the United States—Abdul Monem Rifai from Jordan and Abba Eban from Israel—are representing the two countries most concerned in the debate. Neither is on the council and Jordan is not in the U.N. Lebanon acted on Jordan's behalf in filing her complaint against Israel a week ago. Four days later Egypt, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Yemen joined in it. It charges that •'military trained Israelis" attacked Nahalin village in Jordan the night of March 28, blew up the mosque, killed nine Arabs and wounded 19 others. Israel in turn lodged four complaints against Jordan Monday. She charged these violations of the 1-949 Israel-Jordan armistice agreement: 1. Refusal to attend a conference with Israel on armistice issues called by Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold at Israel's request. 2. An armed attack fatal to 11 Israeli bus passengers March 17 in Israel's Negeb Desert. 3. Other "acts of hostility" and "constant threats against Israel security." 4. Refusal to let Israelis visit holy places and other sites in the Jordan section of divided Jerusalem.

While retail consumer goods have shown some loss, the construction] business is enjoying a higher rate; of activity than in the first quarter of 1953, with prospects for a considerably better year in the mouths to come.
