Truman Held Unlikely
To Bypass Congress
On Palestine Troops
By Associated Press
The administration officials pre
dicted today that President Truman
will ask Congress to aprove any use
of American troops to police Pales
tine. N
This apparently does not role out
the chance that the President might j
in an extreme emergency, order lim-1
ited forces into the Holy Land to
protect American lives and property.
Marines might be used in that
event, although there is no clear
indication that this will happen.
Officials are deeply concerned,
however, lest Arab-Jewish fighting
flare on an even larger scale next
month when the British start with
drawing their troops.
Two Candidates Listed.
Warren R. Austin, American dele
gate, told the United Nations spe
cial Assembly session on Palestine
Tuesday that the United States is
prepared to send troops to the Holy
Land to support a trusteeship gov
ernment on two conditions:
First, other nations must also pro
vide forces; second, Arabs and Jews
must agree to a truce.
In Washington this promptly
raised a question as to the Presi
| dent's authority to use American
I armed forces. Mr. Austin’s state
ment was criticized in the House
yesterday as making a commitment
I in violation of the law giving this
Government the right to member
ship in the United Nations.
This law authorized the President
to negotiate agreements with other
U. N. members for an international
police force. These agreements
would then be subject to congres
sional approval. But the agree
ments never have been made be
cause of the split between Russia
;and the western powers.
Legal Authorities Back Rights.
Administration legal authorities
are understood to have advised the
White House that nothing in the
law prevents the President from
using his constitutional powers as
director of American foreign policy
and commander in chief of the
armed forces.
Undersecretary of State Lovett
told a news conference yesterday
that when Mr. Austin made his
statement to the U. N. he was, in
effect, recognizing obligations which
this country already has under the
As a political matter, however,
administration policy makers ap
parently have decided that the best
course to follow, if troop* are re
quested by the U. N. is to place the
issue before Congress with an ap
peal for prompt approval.
Actually, diplomatic authorities
say, the most critical immediate
question is not how Congress would
react. Rather they consider it to
be whether the necessary interna
tional agreements can be reached in
time to take any effective action
before the British yield their au
thority over Palestine on May 15.

Wallace said in an address here
"Upon the basis of a minimum |
