Gadel 143. Re treatment of Indians in South Africa. Dept concurs recommendations Delga 330 re opposing discussion; discouraging amendments in plenary and support of request for para by para vote.

Dept believes US vote in plenary shld be as follows on questionable parts of res:

Vote in favor second operative para.
Abstain on last para preamble.
Request vote by segments on 3rd para so as to separate last undesirable clause; vote against this clause.
Abstain on res as whole unless both last para premable and last clause para 3 eliminated. If both these sections are eliminated vote in favor of the resolution as a whole.
