FAQfl TWKLTM BLTTHETILLE (ARK.) winnm JHWS Knowland Wants U.S. Funds to U N Cut Off If Red China Admitted WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Knowland (R-Calif) said to day he may ask Congress to shut off all American contribu lions to the United Nations if the U. N. admits Red China to membership. Knowland said Secretary of State Dulles would be asked to reaffirm American policy on the issue today at a closed session of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, at which Dulles wa* scheduled to appear. He ha* no doubt, the California senator said in an interview in advance of that meeting, that the Eisenhower administration remains vigorously opposed to U. N. recognition of the Peiping regime. But to be doubly safe, he said, he may offer an amendment to .the foreign aid bill which would halt TT. S. contributions to the organization if American objections are overridden on this score. The foreign aid bill includes this country's share of U. N. expenses, currently one third of the U. N. budget. Effect the Same Knowland indicated he prefers .this approach to a proposal by Sen. McCarran (D-Nev) to direct President Eisenhower to notify the U.N. of this country's withdrawal of membership and funds if the Chinese-Communists are admitted. ' If either proposal were approved fay Congress, the effect would be to leave the administration no alternative. .••;. : . ~Knowland said he is satisfied Eisenhower and Dulles will do everything they can to prevent Communist China from displacing Nation alist China in the international or ganization. "But I don't know what the. administration's policy would be United States opposition were overridden and the Red Chinese were admitted," he said. "Because I would not want to embarrass the administration, I would resign my leadership in that case to fight to get us out of the organization."
