Questions in Conference New York IF Secretary of State George C Marshall sum moned his 10member U N dele gation for a series of conferences here Saturday to lay down the policy the United States will pur sue on the Balkans Palestine the veto and other issues in the United Nations assembly meeting to start Tuesday An American spokesman said that because of so many major issues Marshall would not attempt to carry the load alone on the 55 nation political committee but would assign other delegates to specific issues as they came before that body In the past the U S has been represented on this important committee by only 1 or 2 dele gates for the entire session The spokesman explained that to oper ate more smoothly the state de partment had decided to assign experts on certain issues like the Balkans and the bigpower veto in the security council to handle them rather than to place the load on one person The importance with which the U S views the coming assembly session at Flushing Meadow park was seen in the fact that Marshall came here to direct personally the American strategy Marshall is to be the 2nd among the 55 chief delegates to speak in the assemblys general debate He will follow Mexicos representa tive to lay down basic C S policy next Wednesday Midwest GOP Heads to Meet for Solid Front Power Bid he might give some ffint before then of the U S stand in the as sembly on the explosive Balkan and Palestine Should he do so most observers expected it to come Sunday when he addresses a luncheon session of the Ameri can Association for the United Na tions American sources however made it clear that the U S was prepared to hold a strong line during the assembly session and perhaps take a commanding spot early Meanwhile Dr Herbert V Ev att Australian minister for exter nal affairs arrived for the assem bly session and launched another slashing attack on Russias use of the veto Evatt told a news conference Friday temporary paralysis had crippled the 11nation security council as a result of utilization of the veto power Noting that Australia and other middle and small nations had founght at San Francisco to give the 55nation assembly more power and prestige Evatt de clared The events of the past 2 years have clearly demonstrated what was then feared and predicted that because of the right of veto the security council would be un able to take effective action even in the peaceful settlement of many disputes and in the dis charge of other functions allotted to it is no reason why the assembly should succumb to the spirit of defeatism which has been created in many quarters as a re sult of the security council find ing itself unable to reach deci sions T MAN FOR IDWANS DEATH Holmes of Davenport Is Wanted by Police

What Does Denham Propose to Do About Asks UMW Leader By HAROLD W WARD AP Staff Correspondent Chicago John L Lewis said Saturday he chose to exer cise negatively the option of signing noncommunist affidavits or not and asked What does Mr Denham pro pose to do about it Lewis reference was to Gen eral Counsel Robert N Denham of the national labor relations board who interpreted the Taft Hartley labor act to require Lewis and other officers of the AFL to swear they are not communists before any AFL union may use the machinery of the NLRB Similarly officers of the CIO must sign such affidavits in order to make CIO unions eligible to use the board Lewis emerging from the final session of the AFLs 15member executive council was informed that Denham expressed regret at the councils decision not to sign the affidavits Denham was quoted in Wash ington as saying that he had made a literal interpretation of the act and could not change his ruling unless congress amended the sta tute or the courts overturning Denhams interpretation I do not suggest that Den hams ruling is wrong Lewis told reporters As a matter of fact it may be expressly and pre cisely in accord with the iniquit ous TaftHartley statute Denhams ruling on the sta tute grants an option to organiza tions of labor to file affidavits of acquiescence or to withhold such filing I chose to exercise the option negatively What does Mr Den ham propose to do about it At a later news conference AFL President William Green unaware that Lewis had made a statement to newsmen said in his opinion the Denham ruling is not justifi able It is not in conformity even with the act and we hope and be lieve that if tested in the courts it will be so declared he said add ing His ruling requires the execu tive council of the AFL to file affidavits individually and at the same time the executive board of the CIO is not required to file af fidavits Green said he had no plans for an immediate court test but said he assumed the provision would be tested The AFL council announced Saturday it was unable to con form with the Denham ruling aft er a stormy session at which Lew is singlehanded opposed signing the affidavits The CIO executive board in cludes the president and secretary treasurer of the CIO and 49 in ternational union presidents Not all of these are officers of the CIO On the AFL executive council all members are vice presidents or other officers of the AFL itself Denham has ruled that the council members must sign be cause they are officers of the fed eration but that only the 9 vice SAME Bliek
