UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (R -
The United States yesterday ob-
tained delay of United Nation As-

to give more time for Israel to con-
sider American proposals to break
the Israeli-Egyptian stalemate.
The UN announced an Assembly
session scheduled for today had
been postponed to Thursday at re-
quest of the United States.
This was done, informed sources
said, so Israeli Ambassador Abba
Eban could fly to Jerusalem for
consultations with Prime Minister
David Ben-Gurion on the Ameri-
can proposals for Israel to with-

Jamali said if the UN is to serve
the cause of peace it must force
Israel "even by the application of
sanctions" to respect the right of
Arab refugees in Palestine. He
said the problem of the refugees
affected the peace and stability of
the whole Middle East.
The United States, unsuccessful
so far in direct consultations with
Israel to persuade the Israelis to
leave Egypt, was reported survey-

gates but not taking a direct hand

Some other countries, however,
were consulting on a resolution
with the hope of arriving at a text
which would achieve results with-
out imposing economic, financial
or military restrictions on Israel.
It was reported that Canada was
one of these countries.
Canada was said to be consider-
ing a revival of a Canadian pro-
posal for the Assembly to give
specific instruction for the UN
Emergency Force to take positions
behind the Israelis as the Israelis
withdrew from the Sharm el
Sheikh area of the Gulf of Aqaba
and the Gaza Strip.
The Canadian idea was dropped
earlier this month in favor or a
more vague formula favored by
the United States and India. The
vague resolution has not worked
and the Canadians are considering
another turn at their plan.

Debaters Urge K ashmir Plebiscite
By CAROL PRINS
The Kashmir dispute should be
settled by a plebiscite was the con-
sensus of opinion at a forum at-
tended by more than 100 people in
the Union last night.
United Nation Emergency Force
occupatioft in Kashmir and the
withdrawal of Indian and Pakis-
tani troops from the disputed ter-
ritory was advocated by Archie
Singham, a Ceylonese student.
"Neither the Indians or the Pak-
istanis have any business in Kash-
mir, only the people of Kashmir
should decide this problem," Sing-
George Abi-Saad, an Egyptian,
said the temporary annexation of
Kashmir by India in the 1940's
was necessary becauseof the in-
vasion by Pakistani troops. An-
nexation was not to -be permanent
until the people of Kashmir de-
cided their own fate and this
hasn't come about. "A plebiscite is
the best solution."
Appeal to Law
Every country has the right to
decide its own future, Juan Matus,
a representative from Chile com-
mented. "When two nations think
they are right, as India and Pak-
istan do in this case, they should
appeal to international law. No
nation can make justice by its
own hands," he concluded.
Fritz Reichert, a German, point-
ed to the settlement of the Saar
question as a realistic solution of
the Kashmir question.
He pointed out that the French
held the practical power in the
Saar region, yet submitted the
final decision to the people of the
Saar. This was done in the inter-
ests of European unity, he ex-
plained. India and Pakistan should
do the same in the interests of
Pakistani viewpoint was stated
by Samin Kahn who explained the
historical background of the dis-

continent was divided because the
Hindus of India and Moslems of
Pakistan were unable to exist to-

tion of Kashmir justifies its an-
nexation by Pakistan, he con-

"Pakistan tribesmen entered in-
to Kashmir to aid those people

arajah who was a Hindu," Khan
India has rejected eleven United
Nations resolutions dealing with
the Kashmir question. Khan com-
mented, "This is in line with the
general intransigence of India."

their own future."

Bond Issues Defeated
Electors refused to support 'any
parts of the city's proposed Capi-
tal Improvements Plan. The six
bond issues, which totaled $3
795,000 dollars would have pro-
vided the city with storm sewers,
park improvements, 'a swimming
pool, a new city hall and fire sta-
tion and improved refuse disposal.
City planners had regarded the
plan as essential to an expanding
community. But the voters ap-
parently didn't see it that way as
each issue failed to get the neces-
sary 60 per cent of the vote
needed for its approval.
City, officials had refused to
predict the outcome of the pro-
posed bond issues though there
was no organized campaign
against the plan. Several city or-
ganizations, including the City
Council were backing it.
Had it passed, the citizens
would have approved an improve-
ment program costing over 12
million dollars of which they
would pay, through taxes, ap-
proximately one third.
In spite of the defeat of the
project, which he had solidly
backed, Brown seemed in high
spirits. He was very happy over
his nomination, he told The Daily

the Second ward.
The Democratic nominees are
