This will be supplemented by other evi- dence, including that of Spanish Republican leaders exiled in Paris. TOO CONFIDENTIAL The investigators did not disclose the sources of documents on Spain which are classed as too confi- dential to be aired in public now. and there was no indication that Spain herself would offer any in- formation. As it began its inquiries, how- ever, the sub-committee was con- fronted with the probability that Jnew evidence would be fed to K. from both Russia and the Spanish Republicans. Shortly after the sub-committee was named by the council on a ballot of 10 affirmative votes, trith Russia abstaining. Moscow radio last night said a signed draft of a secret 1943 Spanish-German tary protocol had been captured in the German foreign ministry dur- ing the Battle of Berlin more than 1 a year ago. j The broadcast declared that rfus- jsian troops captured documents snoiring "that' Generalissimo- Cisco Franco formulated a_ saHitary, alliance with Hitler "in undertook at the appropriate mo- ment to come out against the Allied armies." There seemed little likelihood that the sub-committee headed by Australia's new delegate, Paul Has- luck, would go beyond the receipt and assembly of solicited and vol- unteered data on Spain, or that it would carry its inquiry into Europe without further orders from the council. TO FINISH IN MAY Authoritative quarters expected the sub-committee would report its findings to the council not iater than May 31 and ask for further instructions if it considered an on- the-spo; inquiry advisable. The security council is hi recess >day and may not meet again be- fore next week, when it may re- examine the status of Red army withdrawals from Iran.
