The United States delegation at the U.S. announced today that it has completed the details of a trusteeship plan for Palestine, ?th the cooperation of the State Department. The delegation also stated that it ?ld submit the plan to the special General Assembly session April 16. A.U.S. Spokesman said the delegation hoped the session would be brief.

Members of the Security Council will meet tomorrow in the offices of the American delegation for informal talks on the U.S. proposals for international trusteeship. It is still not known whether the Soviet and Ukrainian delegates will attend ? view of their abstentions during the vote to call a special session to reconsider ?tition.

Meanwhile, the U.N. Palestine Commission and Britain are reported to have work-out plans under which the British Government will permit the Palestine Administration’s trading account to be used for the importation of food supplies, particularly that which is critically needed, after May 15. The agreement will also supply Palestine with sugar, cereals and some fats and oil until June 30. However, the U.N. ? still faced with the problem of distributing the supplies after they reach Palestine.

The British have thus far arranged for the importation of food supplies for ?y a short period beyond the termination of the Mandate. Until now, the world ?d allocation system of the International Emergency Food Council has allocated applies to Palestine under the British Middle East allotment. After June 30 new Locations will be made and the U.N. Commission hopes to be able to disentangle Palestine’s quotas from the British Empire at that time.
