United Nations debate of Palestines fu ture it was learned today Key Latin American diplomats here said the 20 countries the biggest single bloc in the UN could be openminded judges in the UNs effort to settle the Holy Land crisis They envisaged the coming months of debate over Palestine as the first big chance for Latin America to increase its prestige and make a large contribution to the United Nations It was likely that the Latin American bloc could determine the fate of any Palestine proposal discussed in the Assembly because important matters require twothirds of the 55 UN voles for approval Some of the American repub lics will actively campaign for seats on the Palestine factfind ing committee which will be nam ed at the special meeting The major decisions will not be taken until fall It was no secret that represen tatives of the five Arab states in the UN have been soliciting Latin American support for their side in the impending Palestine controversy The Arabs want to head off any decision which would give the Jews a foothold in that part of the world Sa far it ap peared no Latin American votes have been promised STOCKS New York April quieted today and prices
