U.N. Trusteeship Council Opens Its Sission; Jerusalem Issue to Follow Somaliland

The U.N. Trusteeship Council, which is to decide how the U.N. resolution providing for the internationalization of Jerusalem should be implemented, opened its session here today but adjourned immediately until tomorrow following the sudden death of the Ethiopian delegate.

At tomorrow’s meeting the members will decide on the agenda of the current session. It is expected that the parley will deal with the Somaliland problem first and will then take up the question of Jerusalem.

It was learned here today that the Soviet delegation will challenge the credentials of the Chinese delegation in the Trusteeship Council and that it will, most probably, walk out from the session if its motion is rejected.

British diplomats are of the opinion that the Soviet representatives might be pleased with such a development since it would be a way out for the Soviet Union from its present position of supporting an unpopular solution to the Jerusalem problem.
