African countries seem likely to vote with France to scat Communist China in the United Nations this year That as much as anything is expected to prevent a majority in the General Assembly in fa Chinese Chinese Communists on UN bodies The assembly will vote on the issue in late October or early November Delegates who have studied the outlook carefully figure that the margin against seating Communist China may be only half what it was the last time the assembly voted on the issue in October 1963 That time the difference was 16 votes 41 in favor of the Communist Chinese and 57 against Twelve countries ab stained This time indications are that the difference may be only eight votes with 48 in favor 56 against and 13 abstaining In 1963 France and 10 of her African allies voted against the Chinese Communists Later Paris established diplo matic relations with Peking and made known that the French vote next time would be in Pe kings favor That aroused speculation that most of the French African countries would switch too and give the Chinese Communists a majority But some close students of voting probabilities now believe that only the Central African Republic the Cong Brazza ville Maurelania and perhaps Senegal will make the switch They say Chinese Communist tactics have alarmed the others and made them firmly anti Communist Other observers expect the vote will be much closer But even ifthe Chinese Communists should get a could not come majority here they troops reported killing 13 Viet Cong earlier in the operation The Iron Triangle is an area of dense jungle
