Prime Minister Attlee Will Ask Cabinet Whether. To Submit Issue to Assembly LONDON. Aug. 5, Minister Attlee will ask the Bri- tish cabinet Wednesday whether to submit the Palestine issue to the United Nations assembly, government sources said today. This became known a few hours after a Moscow broadcast declaring that attempts to solve the holy land problem without United Nations help "are leading nowhere." Moscow, in the first Russian comment upon the Bri- tish-American proposals for a semi-partition of Palestine, at- tacked the plan vigorously. The British in any event would refer the question to the United Nations only if President'Truman flatly rejected the partition pro- posals, the sources said. Bevin To Attend Foreign Secretary Ernest Bev- in. who has been ill since July 27, will attend the cabinet meetinsr. Colonial Secretary George Hall talked Friday with Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the world Zionist federation. As a result of these talks the cabinet will be asked to determine the basis on which world Jewry is to be rep- resented at any coming con- ferences concerning Palestine's future. Hall is expected to recommend that not only Palestine Jews but those representative of such in- ternational, bodies as the world Zioftist federation be invited to talks, due ta be held within the next six weeks in London. Such invitations would be ana- lagous to those sent by the foreign office to Arabs outside Palestine such as the seven mem- ber-states of the Arab league. Angles Studied Tiie cabinet will consider also releasing from detention all Jew- ish agency and trade union lead- ers not accused of terrorist, activ- ities: Palestine Jewish leaders have declared their particioation in any talks with the British country's fu- ture is conditional on these re- leases. The whole question of illegal immigration oj Jews from central and southern France into Pales- tine is being considered by Bri- tish departmental chiefs. T h e government is investigating a reported "pipeline" said to ex- tend from Germany, through Austria and Italy, across the I Mediterranean to Palestine to car- ry Jewish displaced- persons into the Holy. Land. 7- Illegal immigrant ships pres- ently' being intercepted are al- lowed to discharge their passen- gers, whose numbers are credited to Jewry's monthly auota of 1.- 500 .immigration certificates. But it is "more than one source said, that an interim policy will be laid down by the British government to control the current influx until a long-term firm policy is evolved. Winston Churchill, war-time prime minister, declared a few days ago that Britain should sur- render her mandate and put the Palestine problem up to the Unit- ed Nations unless a plan for the country evolved on which the United. States and Britain could cooperate. v Attlee's move came amid new tension in the Holy Land as a result of a broadcast by the ille- gal Irgun Zvan Leumi resistance group in Palestine' threatening "new and blows against our British The .broadcast said if the Bri- tish again imposed a curfew, as they did in Tel Aviv last wc'ek when an intensive search was carried out by troops for terrorists and arms, "the resi- dents will receive orders to go into the streets at curfew time and if the' British start shooting, there'll be British victims too."

He identified the attackers, who killed the four marines, as Chinese communists. It the first official identification of them. In Nanking, the pro-govern- ment newspaper Ta Kang Pao yesterday that "the hottest rumor here is that President Tru- man has instructed General Mar- shall to prepare plans for with- drawal of U.

Presidential Secretary Charles G. Ross said he knew of no order, for withdrawal. There have been some reduc- tions in marine personnel in China in the past, Admiral Cooke told newsmen, but "there are nine now in progress or Present marine strength in China is to men, he said.

Pan American Airways in Miami said a message from its Ciudad Trujillo airport described the tremor as being "of slight in- tensity." No further details were given. Available reports indicated that yesterday's series of quakes apparently centered in the deep- est hole in the Atlantic ocean and was so intense that it knocked out a recording seismograph in St. Louis, more than miles away, but caused little 'surface damage. One report said five tremors hit Ciudad Trujillo, capital of the Dominican republic, yesterday, with one of the tremors lasting 45 seconds. Reports of n tidal wave lacked any confirmation here.

The ports or Malanxas, Nagua and Puerto Plata were affected by high waters. There was no immediate re- port of any damage due to the waves. The tremors interrupted radio communications with the outside world for hours and in- terfered with the gathering of in- formation concerning the situa- tion at the stricken ports. The quake came as this oldest city .of the western hemisphere., celebrated the 450th anniversary of its establishment by Barto- Iqrne Columbus, the great navi- gator's brother.

The United States and China today threw their support behind a British compromise proposal to solve the deadlock in the Paris pence conference on voting pro- cedure. The British plan would permit the conference to make recom- mendations to the foreign minis- ters of Britain, France, Russia and the United States on the five peace treaties either by a two- thirds or a simple majority vote. A British spokesman explained thnl a proposal voted by two- thirds of the conference would be regarded by the four foreign ministers as n '.'firm recommen- dation" to be considered "very seriously." A'; recommendation voted by a siinnle majority would carry less weight. Byrnes Takes Floor Secretary of State Byrnes, tak- inc the floor in the rules com- mittee after a lone wrangle in which representatives of the smaller powers argued for a rule to permit recommendations by a simple majority, said lie had de- cided it was "the practical to do." to support the British .suggestion. Byrnes promised to support in the foreign ministers council any decision voted by two-thirds of the conference, even though had voted the other 'way .in the conference. He said there were 28 ques- tions on which the council was not. in agreement "some of them very important" anrl on which members of the council were not bound to vote together in the con- Terence. Jf the other members of the council would make tile same of- 'fer that he had, Byrnes said, "it will be the conference rather than the foreign ministers council which will write the treaties" on the questions on which the coun- cil is not in agreement. Answers Argument He thus sought to answer the argument of the smaller powers that as long as the four principal powers vote together there is lit- tle or no possibility of obtaining ii two-thirds vote in the confer- ence .1 gainst any decision of council. It was understood that the French and British delegations were ready to go along with Unifpd Slates in pledging support to the conference's two-thirds majority votes in the council.
