The United Nations Trusteeship Council today decided that the principle of equal education for Jews, Moharmedans and Christians shall be maintained in Jerusalem and that all the schools shall be supervised by a city authority. It also left to the discretion of the city authority as to which of the schools should be subsidized and which not.

The council also decided that the Jerusalem radio stations should be owned by the city and that their facilities should be made available to all three religious commities. The proposed legislative council is to be empowered to decide the question of commercial broadcasting. Israel delegate Aubrey Eban announced that tomorrow he will outline the views of his government on the economic regulations which should govern Jerusalem.
