The specific issue was adopt tion of an agenda Russias Jakob A Malik as August president of the council wanted Korea con sidered 2nd under the heading peaceful settlement of the Ko rean question after disposal of the Chinese issue Warren R Aus tin chief U S delegate insisted the agenda be confined to a single item complaint of aggression upon the republic of Korea Malik refused Tuesday to withdraw or revise his own draft but was willing to make the U S version an additional item That was where the matter stood when the council adjourned Tues day night after defeating 83 Maliks attempt to unseat the Chinese nationalist delegation by a presidential ruling At the start of Wednesdays ses sion Malik said he believed it would be more profitable to consider first the question of Chi nese that it was up to the council to decide whether it wanted to decide the Chinese and Korean questions to gether Sir Gladwyn Jebb of Britain said his government could not agree the questions of Korea and China should be linked Korea Sir Gladwyn said was the gravest problem ever brought before the United Nations He said this problem must have pri ority over all others The Briton said we all wel come Soviet

said the firm had set that date for start of service over the Sioux City IowaChica go and the Rockford IllMilwau kee routes The routes are part ol the north central routes of Parks Air Lines Inc which were awarded Tues day to MidContinent by the civil aeronautics board certificate of authority is to be effective Sept 26 Asks Reversal Meanwhile in Washington how ever counsel for Parks asked the court of appeals for the Districl of Columbia to reverse the CAB order cancelling Parks permit The court issued a temporary order to prevent the board from carrying out its decision A hear ing has been scheduled in Wash ington Aug 9 to determine wheth er to make this order permanent In its decision cancelling Parks permit the CAB said We believe that Parks has had ample chance to establish serv ice The interests of the pub lic preclude any further pamper ing of an air carrier that has re peatedly delayed using its au thorization The board also ordered an in vestigation to determine whether it should suspend service to a number of points on the north central route including the entire ChicagoMinneapolis segment and about 14 points in Illinois and Iowa because many of the cities do not now have adequate airports and most of the other points al ready receive airline service from other carriers Not Affected by Probe These points include Marshall town Des Moines Oskaloosa Ot tumwa Burlington Cedar Rapids Muscatine and Clinton in Iowa but the Sioux CityChicago route is not affected Miller said The MidContinent president said here that his company had enough 21passengerDouglas DC

proving flights to qual ify pilots The personnel is now available and work is to start im mediately The Mason City airport com mission has for many months had on file an application with the CAB to be included as a stop on the ChicagoSioux City route in stead of Fort Dodge which has no adequate airport facilities Action on this application must precede any stop here on the east west route explained H C Tim berlake Minneapolis commission consultant But I see no reason why serv ice cannot start from Mason City at the same time it does on the rest of the route declared Tim berlake The commission is making an immediate request to the CAB for action on the request for eastwest service through Mason City said Commission Chairman Emil Koer ber Milk Price Raised Cent at Iowa Falls price of milk
