Khrushchev declared two weeks ago that the Soviet Union was ready to pull out of the four-power setup, a leftover from the victorious Allies' cooperation in Gcr- jBany, and leave the Woslern powers on their own .fn dealing 1 with the- East Germans. The. West's dilemma Was how far to go in dealing with Moscow's East German satellite, Despite official denials, reports persisted here, in London, in Washington and in Bonn thai the British see less danger in such deat- injf than do the Americans.

(Al 3 ) —The United States today proposed that tlie U.N. go nhead without the Soviet Union if the Russians refuse to take part in a proposed international study of outer 'space cooperation, The proposal was made by Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge, who told the U.N.'s Hi-National Political Committee he had been unable to reach agreement with Soviet Deputy Fore-inn Minister Valerian Zbrln in private talks. Lodge, said he hoped Zorin would vote- for'a revised 20-nalion resolution which embodies many ot tho elements In a rival Soviet plan. He added, however, that failure of the Soviet Union to agree should not hall U.N. action. "We. hope the Soviet Union will eoonerate," Lodge said. "If the Soviet Uiiion docs not take part, T do not think that is a reason -to falter. Wu can still do useful work." Lodge reported that the United Stales and the Soviet Union had )iln into a solid deadlock over lh» composition of the proposed U.N. committee which would be given the task of working out a purmii- nen.t agency on the Dcaccful uses of miler space. .Westorri diplomats predicloO i> handsome majority for the 20-na- tlon proposal with or without Soviet support .••Some Asians and Africans expressed doubt that the Russians would sit on the committee, which would report back to llm Asscm- bly next -year on svhal the UN should do'to promote interiifitional •cooperation . in the study and peaceful use of outer space. . The committee would consist ',>[ 38' countries — three Communist. (Jirce neutralist and 12 pro-West- ,,crn. Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Valerian A.

The United States and its cosponsors had been waiting since Friday night for Soviet reaction t<> the revised version ol their original Nov. 13 resolution. They submitted the nesv draft after Zorin and U.S. Delegate Henry Cabot Lodge failed in private talks to 1 agree on composition of the proposed special committee — the. main stumbling block to preparation o fa single resolution that they could pass unanimously.
