Rockefeller, Jr. of an $8,500,000 skyscraper site in Manhattan, as the permanent home of the world organization. The decision now goes to the general assembly for approval.

When the decision of the committee reaches the general assembly, it will require two-thirds approval for ratification, 36 votes then being necessary, if there is full attendance.
