Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, MAY THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD PAGE POSTPONE CONSIDERATION OF ALBANIA'S ADMISSION TO UN. By ERAKCIS W. CARPENTER NEW YORK. May United Kauoas security council to- dav adopted unanimously a United Stales resolution which, in effect delays immediate consideration of Albania's request for admission to the United Nations. The council then adjourned sub- iect to the call of the chairman. The resolution offered May 10 by Edward R- Steainius, Jr., United States delegate, provides that all applications for United Nations, membership submitted not. later than July ID shall be considered by I the council in August. Albania's application is the only one on file. GKO2IVKO SKEPTICAL Andrei A- Gromyko, Soviet dele- gate, called the proposal "useless" in view of the new rules on admission adopted today by the council but went along with the other delegates when the vote was taken, Poland's delegate. Dr. Oscar Lange. voted for the resolution after remarking he desired to make sure it "is no; an attempt to postpone" consideration of Albania's applica- tion. Mr. Siettinius said the United States would do everything in its power to see that every applicant was given the fullest consideration. Albania is sponsored by Yugo- slavia, not a member of the se- curity council, and is supported by Russia and Poland. Britain has opposed the Albanian application bus the British delegate did no: speak on the pome today. "The resolution provides applica- tions received up to July 15 will be turned over to a council sub-com- mittee for a report and then con- sidered by the council "at ing or meetings to be held ia August. 1946 for this specific pur- pose."

Thursday acd revealed in a public demonstration a 47-foot motorless. bat-like aerial freak but one that may well play a big part in futuie aviation.
