Council to Take Up,
By the Associated Press
LAKE SUCCESS, Oct. 25.—'The
United Nations Security Council
takes up today the disputed ques
tion of demilitarizing Jerusalem.
The U. N. Assembly nearly a
year ago ordered the Council to
try to get Arab and Israeli armed
forces out of the Holy City, and
Egypt has proposed that the
Council now take some action.
Egypt is a member of the Se
curity Council. Israel is not, but
its permanent delegate, Aubrey
Eban, got permission beforehand
to appear before the Council and
make a statement.
Israel has announced that it
would resist making an interna
tional city of Jerusalem. Its of
ficials have promised, however,
that the state would guard and
give free access to the religious
shrines of the three great religions
—Chrisian, Moslem and Hebrew—
Oppression Led to Iraq.
Jerusalem is considered an in
tegral part of the state of Israel
by its leaders and any other at
tempt to diminish Israeli control
of any kind appeared certain to
be resisted. It was expected that
Israel would argue that she had
the right to maintain her own
troops in any area of her country.
The dispute was forced by one
of the leaders of the Arab states
and its debate comes at a time
when Israel is charging another
Arab state, Iraq, with oppressing
thousands of its Israeli inhabi
tants. The charges were denied
immediately by Fadhil Jamali,
Iraq foreign minister, who heads
his delegation to the U. N.
Jamali said in a statement he
had been informed by the Iraqi
government that there have been
no recent Jewish arrests there,
as charged by the Israelis. He said
the charges were an Israeli ma
neuver to counter Arab charges of
mistreatment of Arab refugees by
Israel, which will soon come up
in the U. N.
Mr. Eban said there was no in
tention now to bring the accusa
tions against Iraq before the U. N.
The Political Committee con
tinues its discussion today on at
tempts at conciliation in the
Balkans by a special peace-mak
ing committee. The discussion
was sidetracked yesterday by a
running fire of accusations made
by Russia and her satellites that
Greece is engaged on a wave of
executions and political trials.
Colonies Debate Resumes.
The subcommittee dealing with
disposal of Italy’s prewar colonies
in Africa returns to debate an
Argentine proposal to give Eri
trea her choice of whether she
would federate with Ethiopia, de
mand independence, or be divided
between Ethiopia and the Anglo
Egyptian Sudan. It was one of
several compromise offers in an
attempt to get something done
with Eritrea, Libya and Somali
land during this session.
Dollar shortages in Latin Amer
ican countries are causing dis
crimination against buying United
States products, a Brazilian dele
gate told the U. N. Economic
Committee. The committee con
tinues discussion of full world em
The Legal Committee, discussing
a new international code of the
rights of states, was begged by
M. Bartos of Yugoslavia for im
mediate action in adopting rules
which would halt aggression and
keep big nations from threaten
ing little ones. Mr. Bartos said
off the floor thaf he meant Rus
sia and her threats against Yugo
slavia in his remarks.

Alaskan Gold Rush Increases
Amid Rumors of New Finds
By the Associated Press
FISHWHEEL, Alaska, Oct. 25.—
Even sub-zero temperatures failed
to stem the feverish activity today
in this booming gold rush camp.
Rumors that more nuggets had
been found along the banks of the
fabled Yukon River swept period
ically through Fishwheel. But
attempts to trace the finds met
Prospectors eyed one another
suspiciously, unwilling to talk
about their lucks until they have
filed their claims.
Although the temperature is 15
below and still falling, many early
arrivals have begun panning for
the precious yellow stuff.
From their results it may be
known soon whether this gold rush
is destined to be remembered along
with the other famous ones of

The nugget was said to have
been accidentally pulled up in a
miner’s bucket from the bottom of
a water hole a quarter of a mile
from the original strike.
Earl Hurst, veteran Alaska pros

nugget, which he described as
