Five million Australians finished cast ing their ballots a few hours ago in an election that turned the reins of government over to oth er hands. As in New Zealand just a few days ago, the issue was continued Socialism versus Free Enterprise. At stake are 123 seats in the Australian House of Commons, i Votes counted thus far show the Free Enterprise candidates out in ; front for a majority of those 123 seats. They have won 64 seats, while the Laborites won 50. Voting is compulsory in Aus tralia; and there was a heavy i turnout at the polls. ! The trend against Labor had ! been apparent from the time the : first returns began to trickle in. Political experts regard 28 elec tion districts as key districts. Within two hours after the polls , had closed, it was evident that the two-party opposition was get ting the upper hand in all 28 key voting centers. Labor was taking a bad beat ing in Queensland, which had been regarded as a Laborite stronghold for years. In the key state of New South Wales, the early count indicated that more people were voting against Labor than in the last election three years ago. New South Wales is important because of the 123 members of Commons, 47 are elected from that state. In the past, New South Wales has been staunchly pro-labor. Scenting victory fop the first htime since the Laborites took Over in ’4l, the Conservatives were unable to conceal their joy. ..j Late Bulletins... .

IQ._(■&).—ln spite of open threats of bloodshed to come, the United Nations As sembly has voted to set up an in ternational rule over Jerusalem. Last night, the 1949 UN As sembly over-rode all opposition to internationalize the Holy City under a UN Commission. Both the Jewish and Hashemite Jordan groups protested the ar rangement. The Jews and Has hemites now cotrol separate sec tions of the city under a miiitary armistice. Five other Arabic countries, all UN members, joined with Latin American delegates to break up attempts to delay the Jerusalem vote until 1950. Has hemite Jordan is not a member of the UN, since Russia vetoed her application. Both Israeli and H, hemite spokemen warned that King AbullUh of Jordan would resist international rule of Jerusalem. And Isreal's Foreign Minister, Moshe Sharett, quoted King Ab dullah as saying that the UN would rule the part of Jen salem now under his control only “over his dead body.’’ At the same time, Sharett said the population of Jewish Jerus alem would not help a UN cor/- mission. And it has been hinted that Israel would fight the UN internationalization with under ground groups. However, the UN Assembly (Continued On Page Five; ” ELKS Annual Memorial Exercises 3:30 P.
