U. N. Sanctions Group Votes
For World Ban on Shipment of
Committee's Ballot
First Step Toward
Imposing Embargo
By the Associated Press
14.—The United Nations Sanc
tions Committee today voted for
a worldwide ban on shipments of
war goods to Communist China.
The vote was 11 to nothing, with
Egypt abstaining.
Hie sanctions group, formally
known as the Additional Measures
Committee, is a 14-nation body
set up to consider punishment of
Red China for her intervention in
Korea. The committee’s vote is
only the first step toward imposi
tion of the worldwide embargo.
Next, the ban must be debated
by the Political Committee of the
General Assembly and then by the
Assembly in plenary session. The
Soviet bloc is expected to fight ltj
to the last ditch in both forums, j
India, leader of the neutralist
group in the U. N., also is expected
to oppose the embargo as endan
gering any chance of peace nego
tiations with Peiping.
Acceptance Foreseen.
All signs point to eventual As
sembly acceptance, however, and
the United States hopes adoption
will be by an overwhelming ma
British and French opposition
to the move, based on the fear
that it might enlarge the area of
conflict, evaporated last week. In
formed sources said Conservative
protests in the British House of
Commons about rubber shipments
to Red China plus much adverse
American comment helped change
London’s mind.
Britain announced last Thurs
day that it was cutting off further
rubber shipments from Malaya to
areas controlled by Peiping.
Pushing of punitive measures
against the Chinese Reds indicates
the extreme pessimism with which
the U. N. regards the possibility
of a negotiated peace in Korea.
Members of the punishment
group are Australia, Britain, Bel
gium, Brazil, Canada, Egypt,
France, the Philippines, Turkey,
Mexico, the United States and
Venezuela. Yugoslavia and Burma
were named to the committee but
have refused to serve.

But Morrison Keeps
Watch on Oil Fight
By the Associated Press
LONDON, May 14.—Britain told
its trouble-shooting 16th Inde

today to bring itself at once to a
state of readiness.
Simultaneously Foreign Secre
tary Morrison — interrupting his
Whitsun holiday on the Isle of
Wight —kept in touch with the
Foreign Office by phone on the
latest developments in Iran.
There was speculation that the
two events were connected, and
that Britain was ready to make a
strong stand, if necessary, to hold
its rich oil concession in Iran.
But this speculation was with
out official confirmation. A War
Office spokesman stressed that the
parachute brigade was not under

alerting order as routine War Of

The unit now is assembling
itself at Aldershot, 35 miles from

Some sections of the British
press have been demanding a
stronger attitude toward Iran.
The line taken by these publica

portant to Britain and the At
lantic powers that the British
should resist any attempt by Ira
nian authorities to take over the
installations of the Anglo-Iranian
Oil Co., As Iran’s Parliament has
voted to do.
A few days ago The Economist,
a weekly independent journal of
opinion, said Mr. Morrison has
drafted a note to Iran hinting
that Britain will resist by force, if

government "still believes force

but inflame the whole of the Arab
Middle East."
Alarm indicated.
Up until the last few days, at
least. Prime Minister Attlee's cab
inet has held to the hope that
the whole issue could be worked
out by peaceful negotiation. That
still is the public position of the
cabinet. Mr. Morrison’s activities
today, however, indicate increas
ing alarm. The foreign secretary’s
latest note is expected to be dis
patched to Teheran soon.
The United States is being kept
informed about British moves.

It is commanded by Brig. Kenneth
