COUU1KR • EPSON IN WASHINGTON Economic Co-Operation «V FETElt EDSON Courier News Washington Cor respond cut ' The hundred or more Independent, international economic and social regulatory, advisory or consul- live commissions, conferences and committees which liai'e been sprouting all- over I ho lerreslinl landscape 1 since the last- war will at last find- some kind of a home if the United Natloiw clinrlcr proposed at Dumbarton Oaks Is ever put Into effect. ;' Provision ,for tying together all these .economic loose 'ends conies in the charter's Section IX, which sets up a pattern for economic and social co-operation. Every business man-wllh any kind of a stnke at, all In international trade — even clown to the importer of two baas of coffee or Hie grower of surplus wheat which must be sold at export—has an interest In this because It is (he first effort to set lip one central, inter-governmenlnl clearing house that will know what's going on in the world of International trade, and win advise and consult with nations in nn effort to keep.them out of the economic snarls that eventually lead lo N'O OVKH-A1.1. CONTItCL The first thing that the Dmn- carton Oaks planners make clear about the proposed arrangements lor interimtiimal economic and social co-opcnUion is that they arc not tl-ying to set up a super-government. Nothing like that is in the picture, individual governments still have final determination on now their international business affairs are to be conducted. But the united Nations organization ns proposed would have the power to make studies and | o recommend certain courses of action, subject to rallflcnlioi) by as manr of the nations as might care to "go along on any program. Th e need for this kind of international economic co-operation becomes apparent when you consider all the agencies now ai work In one particular field of regulation. Since the start of Hie war tlierc have been the United Nations Conference on Fowl ni ,d Agriculture- at Hot Springs, the Interna- tional Monetary Conference at Weeds Hole, 'llie international Conference on Civil Aviation opening Nov. 1 In Chicago, iiml Allied Conference of Ministers of Ed- jicatioii in London, an international Convention on Communications still lo be nrr.'in^cd for, The tendency has been all- towards settinn up these one-subject, iigrceincnts, let- ling each.go its separate- way and hoping that there would l>e no con- diet between them. Recognizing that this kiilri of International, loose dealing could not go on forever, the united Nations Food and Apiculture Organization charter mnkc.s specific provision that Us activities shall be co-ordinated with the broader United Nations Organisa- tion when and If Hint body Is established: ONII-COMMODITY AGUUKMISNTS TUB mil.B ' IN I'AST Before the war, trade agreements were usually uuulc between only two nations, or when more nations entered Into « foreign commerce regulation agreement the subject covered ivas usually confined to the production and marketing ot one commodity. There were, for Instance! the in- tcniatloiiiil agreements on coffee, svigar, wheat, wool, tea, rubber, (i>; and beef. Sonic of these are still operative, though shipping disruptions have made normally regulated trade impossible, nut 'it is contemplated that if the United Nations organisation for International economic co-operation would briUK Ihc activities of till these one-commodity agreements within it's preview, it would In fact be prepared to tackle the problems of cartels- viewed by many students of international affairs as one of the greatest threats against' malntalnini' world pence. The machinery with wiilch the charter proposes to handle, these questions centers In th c General Assembly of all the nations. The Assembly would name in nations whoso representatives would make up an Economic and Social Council Its members would serve for thrcu- ycar terms. The Council, in turn would set up an economic commission, a social, commission, and pos Marriage Licenses nifty-thuv miiulutx' Ilocn-ics have been Issued In the past, seven days through the lociil office of •the raunty court clerk in thc courthouse.
