The British cabinet lifts decided henceforth to use British Influence mid British energies to bring nbout nn understanding be- tween the now state of Israel and Transjorclnn's King Abdullah. This radical change In British policy makes possible (though by no means certain) both a settlement or the Palestine tragedy nnd'the healing of the mcnnclup breach between the United States and Britain, which has arisen out of the Palestine Issue. Until this decision was taken, British Palestine policy was made exclusively by British Foreign Sec- rctnry Ernest Bevln. The general British renctlon to Bnvln's policy was recently summed up by one of Bevln's staimchcst supporters, who remarked. "Everyone knows that Ernie's making a proper muck of It, but everyone's Hundred per cent behind him." This remark seems at this distance almost equal- ly applicable to President Harry S. Truman's handling of American Palestine policy. At any rate, within tho last couple of weeks the ter- rible risks Involved In a bitter brenk between Britain and the United States on tho Palestine Issue have suddenly become clear here, tis they seem to bo becoming clear In the United States. FOR THIS REASON, the Bevln policy of trying for a settlement on the lines of the now hopelessly un- realistic Morrlson-Grady report has Dccn quietly shelved, Moreover, Pa- lestine policy In now no longer made by Bovln alone, but by the whole British Cabinet, where tho influ- ence of Sir Stafford Crlpps, who is deeply conscious of tho dangers of a real break between America Allies Defy Russ on German Plan _ _JL Motorcyclist Killed in Crash Near Canton Youthful Driver Cleared of Blame After Inquest Canton, mo- i torcyclist was killed almost instantly Sunday at 11 a. m. when the chine which he was riding collided j with an automobile at the junction of highway 52 and the main street leading out of this city.

Two youths were killed and two seriously injured three miles north of here early yes- terday in what Sheriff Lyman Clark called one of the worst traffic acci- dents in Outagamle county history. The dead were Marvin M. Minten, 19 and his brother, Alviri L. Min- ten, 20, both of Little Chute, Wis. The injured are Anthony B. Wln- gaard, 19, and Richard Van Do Hey, 20, also both of Little Chute. Wtn- gaard is reported in critical condi- tion at a hospital here, while Van De Hey Is said to be in fair condi- tion. Sheriff Clark said the youths were returning from a wedding dance when their car crashed into a cul- vert on highway 47. The motor of the car was hurled 10 feet by the im- sumo authority in the Arab por a Jewish state within the boun- daries recommended by the United Nations. British Influence has already been quietly brought to bear on Abdullah to this end. The Tvnnsjordan king has been unofficially but firmly in- formed thai; It his British-trained Arab lesion crosses tho United Na- tions' partition line, British sub- sidles, on which Abdullah is wholly dependent, will cense. Moreover, di- rect negotiations between emissaries from Israel and Abdullah's repre- sentatives MO now in progress, and thn British desire for an agreed .settlement has been delicately com- municated to Abdullah. No one here underestimates the obstacles which lie in tho path of such n settlement between Abdullah nnd Israel. If Abdullah agrees, the other Arab states, especially Iraq. Syrlit and Egypt, will howl blue murder. Attempts by the trigRcrmen of the discredited Mufti of Jerusalem to ussBMslnsitP thn Transjordan king are not to be ruled out.

The roll call vote was 67 to 7. The vote was not a direct-test on how the Senate feels about race segregation.
