Download PDF for this date

A general settlement of the peace in Palestine is omitted from the provisional agenda of the forthcoming session of the United Nations General Assembly which was released here today. The session opens Sept. 20 at Flushing Meadow.

The agenda reveals that there will be a discussion of the internationalization of Jerusalem, the protection of the Holy Places and assistance to the Palestine Arab refugees. Other items of major interest to Jews on the provisional listing are the conversion of the genocide convention into international law and the conversion of the human rights declaration into an international covenant.
