There is little likelihood that the Palestine ##e will come before the U.N. Security Council when it meets tomorrow, it was in##ted today with publication of the Council’s agenda. The Palestine issue is not ##uded, and although any member may bring up the subject without previous warning, informed sources said that this was unlikely.

These sources pointed to the appeal yesterday by Secretary-General Lie to the fore nations represented on the Palestine Implementation Commission to speed the ##ointment of their representatives and stated that no decisive action would be ##en on the Palestine issue until the Commission has been constituted and begins work.The decision to set up two independent states in Palestine heads a list of ?e major U.N. achievements in the past year contained in a U.N. Press Division mound-up of 1947 developments. It describes the Palestine solution as the “most ##matic of all the decisions” backed “by more than 2,000 years of history.”
