Keep Eye on China Crisis May Have Effect on United Nations Lake Success, (U.R)—Diplomats here are watching the Chinese crisis closely because of China's important position as a permanent member of the United Nations security council. Any change in China's government may lead to a revision of her foreign policy and that, in turn, m*y vitally affect the U. N. It is assumed that if China comes under complete communist domination, she will align herself with Russia. This would represent the first significant change in the political lineup of the U. N. since its birth more than 3 years ago. In the security council, the voting alignment would be 8 to 3 on most questions instead of the customary 9 to 2. There would be 2 permanent members of the council in the minority instead of 1 and each has the veto power. Russia already is able to thwart a majority decision by the veto— and has done so 29 times—but she would have the moral advantage of having another big power join her in each future veto. At present Russia is supported in the council only by the Soviet Ukraine.

For a century Sarawak was an independent and sovereign state under British protection. It was ruled by the fabulous Brooke family, the "White Rajahs."

Their case is in the courts of the Sultanate of Brunei in Borneo. Eventually it is expected to go to the privy council, Britain's highest judicial body. In Sarawak itself, the burden of the campaign for the return of the paternal Brooke rule has been carried out by the Malay National Union oJ Sarawak, the Sarawak Dyak association (Dyaks are former h e a d-hunting forest dwellers), ibr- Sarawak youth movement and the Malay youth movement of Sarawak.
