Near Voting Rights Issue Put Off UNITED NATIONS, NY, (AP) Agreement was report- ed near Monday on adjourning the U.N. General Assembly un- til Jan. 11 and putting off any U.S.-Soviet showdown over vot- ing rights stemming from Soviet refusal to pay peacekeeping as sessmcnls. sources said the way appeared open for filling vacancies on the Security Coun- cil and handling oilier necessary year-end business under the nn- vole truce svhich has been iii effect since the assembly opened Dee. 1. The chief obstacle to a recess had been a deadlock between Mali and Jordan over a Security Council seat to be vacated by Morocco next Friday. The coun- cil, chief peacekeeping organ of the United Nations, would be unable to function without its full 11-nalion membership. Inoi-mal Poll Alex Quaison-Sackey of Gha- na, the assembly president, was reported to have persuaded Mali and Jordan to accept the results of an informal poll of the assembly's 115 members. The loser would withdraw and per- mit the winner to be elected by acclamation. The way open for the assembly to meet Tuesday, approve year-end business and then adjourn while further at- tempts are made to resolve the basic dspute over voting rights. Meeting with Quaison-Sackey on Monday were U.S. Ambassa- dor Adlai B. Stevenson and So- viet Ambassador Nikolai T. Fe- dorenko.

Diplomatic sources said Thanl may make an appeal in the as- sembly Tuesday for voluntary contributions to ease the organi- zation's financial plight. But no progress was made in resolving basic issues in the dispute over refusal of the Soviet Union and other debtor nations to pay the long overdue peacekeeping as- sessments. Wants Settlement The United Stales is willing to settle on the basis of voluntary contributions by the debtor na lions, provided that Thant ac cepts them as sufficient lo avoic any challenge to voting rights under Article 19 of the U.N Charter. The article says that any member two years in arrears in assessments shall lose its as sembly vole. But the Russians wanl the assembly to rule out any men tion of Article 19 in calling for voluntary contributions, and to proceed immediately on a nor mal basis which includes voting Informed sources said tin Russians have (old Thanl Ihe; will be among the first to maki a voluntary contribution, bu have not specified any amount.

Chief of State Phan Khac Suu and Premier Tran Van Huong issued a communique that was widely interpreted here as indi- cating failure in secret negotia- lions on Ihe crisis set off by the military purge Dec. 20 of the High National Council. "For the past week we have made strenuous efforts to find a way to conciliate divergent views, to preserve the solidarity binding Ihe government, the armed forces and the people while saving full civilian gov- ernment to avoid disappointing the people's they said. "We hope that, thanks lo the warm support of the enlire pop- ulation and lo the good will ol the armed forces council, ive will find a fitting solution."
