—Allied armed forces struck a mighty air blow s on the Japanese industrial center of Osaka today. brought final victory on Okinawa within their grasp, and broadened a grip on the China coast opposite Okinawa to more than 100 miles.
By land, sea and air the ailies were pressing through the preliminaries to the decisive assault on Japan proper.
Superforts and fighters nearly 600 strong hit Osaka for the second time in a week. The big bombers poured 2,500 tons of fire and high explosive missiles Into the
city. Clouds obscured the results. but returning airmen said they blanketed the entire target area.
Word To End
Preamble for Charter of
New World Unit Okayed
SAN FRANCISCO, June 7—(TJP>
—With the new world organization charter nearly completed the United Nations conference waited today for a sign from Moscow for a "break" in the big five dead-
lock over voting procedure.
Disagreement over a tiny part of the voting formula—whether a big power should have the right to veto discussion of a dispute in the security council—is the last major obstacle to completion of the charter,
Officials predicted that the conference could be adjourned within 10 days after the veto issue is settled. That allows for the formalities of commission and plenary sessions.
The veto question has been stuck ever since the United States. Britain, France and China rejected Russia's proposal for a veto over council discussion last Saturday.
Neither the United States nor the Russian delegations here are disposed to make a move on it.
The whole question appears to have been transferred to a far higher level.
