In no case are they present in violation of a treaty agreement to withdraw, and despite a recognized government's protest of their presence to the United Nations. rjut protests and excuses' can lead to no solution in an ini£rnatk>jial organization without real legal power, umiy.lhanku to weakening compromises, without any real strength to uct against the Big Five. Lacking legal teeth,' the United 'Nations can depend only on good will for its good work. And good will .seems to be an unhappily scarce commodity in the international market these days.

She hadn't seen him or some months—not since h* nd Nina had atayed overnight t their house—and was disgusted at the ridiculous way her heart ad acted. It thumped alarmingly at the very sight of him. Jock •was married, and she w»s married —she musn't lose sight of those wo very important facts. He stood beside her, and flung an arm carelessly about her waist, •hich gave her a further twinge of uneasiness. For Colin was so far away, and Jock so very close. It's a beautiful day, isn't It?

In fact, it's better that we don't I think. For after all, we know—even though we hate to admit it—that friendship simply isn't possible, when you've been in lov« nctee." "And who in hell said anything about friendship?" Jock inquired rpugtly.
