Transfer of the Palestine Mandate from Britain to the United Nations Organization is urged by the Soviet trade union publication, “Trud,” the Moscow radio said today.

The newspaper declared: “British Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin’s statement that a decision on the future status of Palestine would have to await the results of the Anglo-American Commission of Inquiry satisfied only a few people at the UNO Assembly. Surely the appointment of a commission from two countries does not exempt the British Government from transferring Palestine to the UNO,” Trud concluded.
