i Senator Wurron Aus'.m of Vermont, Vermont, now U. S, delegate to thc United Nations, arose In the clos- I Ing session of thc Assembly and P"ld tribute to a great American— ~ i ' t j Oswaldo Aranha of Brazil, Tho average newspaper reader might not think of the former Bra^ xlllun foreign minister as an American, American, because we have thc bad habit habit of thinking th'it only North Americans Americans arc Americans. But not only Is Arnnha a great American — whether North or South — but he has been one of the gratest friends of lhc United States. '['lino fiftor llmo during the early utiigns of tho war, when thc Brn- y.lllun Army und even woi-o convinced President the U. S. ; | forces would not recover from the j crippling blow at Pearl Harbor,_Ar- tinhn forced them to (,'ivo vital Era- ulllan milltaiy bnsow to thn U. S, A. Tlrno after time ho threw his wi-'.ght hohlnd U. S. requests that [^ni'/.H clean out Na-/.l agents and tht Jap cQlonlcs In Sao Paulo. At thc recent United Nations meet- Ing, Arnnha n« President did more than any other sne man to pilot Ihi- Assunibly through tho pitfalls of VNhln.-iky recriminations, British vacillation and Cromyko vetoes, Tho . I1 .ometimc3 \vavorlng U. N. came out stronger and healthier fc.-r Aranha's wise leadership. Soniitor Austin, who has done a lot for tho United Nfitlons himself, had good mason to know all this. I Tho only thing that might hnvo ' hc-i.'n fuldod to Austin's tribute is ! that if anyone deserves the Nobel {'Peace Prize next year, It will be O.ivvuldo Aranlui for his great work At as Prc.iUlcnt if tho United Nations. | U.
