The United States Representative at the United Nations ( Austin ) to the Department of State

confidential

326. Re Chinese representation. Gross discussed with Padilla Nervo, Chi representation question (Deptel 127, Sept 23). Padilla strongly inclines to view question cannot properly be raised by point of order and would like our comments. He would be prepared to rule out of order Sov attempt to raise Chi representation question at outset GA and if challenge is made, to call for GA vote at once without discussion on the challenge to his ruling.

Gross explored possible advantage of disposing of matter on basis contemplated para 2 reftel.

Dept’s views urgently requested.

Austin
