Suez Users Get
Time to Consult
On Egypt's Plan i
U. N. Council Finds
Wide Criticism
Os Canal Proposals
April 27 UP).—The United Na
tions Security Council today
took time out from Its Suez
Canal debate to let user countries
consult on Egypt’s new plan for
running the waterway.
An all-day Council discussion
yesterday showed two members
satisfied with the Egyptian dec
laration. three willing to give it
a try and six anxious to replace
it with an international agree
For it were Iraq and the Soviet
Union. For giving it a try were
Nationalist China, the Philip
pines and the United States.
For replacing it were Australia,
Britain, Colombia, Cuba, France
and Sweden.
One common criticism was
that the declaration did not pro
vide for “organized cooperation”
between Egypt and the users.
Another was that Egypt could
revoke it without getting any
body else's permission.
Debate Is Adjourned
Sir Pierson Dixon of Britain,
Council president, noted “a gen

declaration cannot be regarded
as a final settlement.” He said

debate to a date to be fixed by,
agreement of Council members. !
E. Ronald Walker of Australia!
and Guillaume Georges-Picot of!
France had suggested that the;
Council should arrange for fur
ther negotiations toward an in- ■
ternational canal agreement, but
no resolution calling for that ac

spokesman said “you don’t need

AMMAN. Jordan, April 27 (JP).
—Jordan’s new government set
up military courts today to try
cases stemming from the Arab
nation’s recent political turmoil.
King Hussein's Arab Legion
continued a roundup of Com
munists, left-wing leaders and
extreme nationalists in an at
tempt to wipe out the Red influ
ence contributing to Jordan's
ferment. The country remained
outwardly calm, with the streets
of major cities virtually desert
ed, in the third day of martial
law pr<x:laimed by the young
(It was reported in other
Arab capitals that several hun
dred persons were arrested in
the roundup of leftists. One
report said former Premier
Suleiman Nabulsi, ousted by
the King two weeks ago. was
under house arrest in Am
The new cabinet met for two
hours under Premier Ibrahim
Government officials who had
been fired during the Nabulsi
administration were nearly all
given back their jobs.
Troops Patrol Streets
The streets of Amman, Old
Jerusalem. Nablus. Ramallah
and Irbid—the chief Jordanian
cities—all were virtually deserted
under the almost total curfew.
Troops and police patrolled the
five cities, forcing everyone ex
cept a few officials to stay in
doors through most of the day.
King Hussein’s hand was
strengthened by pledges of loy
alty to him and his new govern
ment from sheiks and mayors
in the older part of his desert
The 21-year-old King also re
ceived some public expressions
of support from the small but
crowded Palestinian part of
Jordan acquired during the
1948-9 Arab-Israeli War.
It was among the Palestinians
that the Communists, infiltrat
ing the ranks of Arab Nationalist
movements, exerted most of their
Hussein's moves, beginning
with imposition of martial law
and abolition of all political
parties Thursday, brought him
at least temporary victory in
the second round of his struggle
for his throne.
Holds Palestinian Area
The King’s appointment yes
terday of Suleiman Toukan as
military governor of Jordan was
expected to help bring control
over the Palestinian region west
of the River Jordan. Mr.
Toukan is considered one of the
most influential personalities
from that area. He served for
26 years as Mayor of Nablus, on
the Israel-Jordan border.
The Palestinians make up
more than half of the popula
tion of Hussein's country, out
numbering the real Jordanians
from the east side of the River
Jofidan who only recently
emerged from ancient Bedouin
The first tw-o days under mar
tial law passed peacefully. The
.virtually complete curfew which
had been ordered in the major
icities were lifted for three hours
on the second day to give Mos
lems a chance to attend Sab
bath prayers at mosques. There
were no demonstrations.
A meeting of Sheiks and other
leaders in Karak voted full sup
port to Hussein and sent a mes
sage to Cairo urging Egypt to
stop what the Sheiks called
propaganda aimed at causing
confusion. The expressions of
support from the mayors came
in telegrams to the palace, in
cluding a few from the west bank
of the Jordan.
