He would be nominated by the Security Council, but lie would be elected by the General Assembly. If the General Assembly didn't like anyone nominated by the Council, he could be voted against by n majority of the Assembly and II would then be up to the council to keep nominating others null] It found n satisfactory candidate. The Secretary" General would serve as secretary of the Security Council, ihc Genera) Assembly, the Economic and Social Counclj, but he would have no vote. Bui his powers would be considerable. He could ••cull lo (lie attention of the Security Council any situation threatening the pence of the world. This Is a new power not enjoyed by the societal> of the League of Nations. He would be director of Hie organization's permanent staff, , the "International civil service" which would develop, just as It did In the League, to do (lie housekeeping and :ho chief clerking for the various departments of the orgiinlaitioii. Once a year he would have to •eporl lo the Assembly on the work of .the organization nnd this aii- nual message- would likely become wered as. he kept on blazing nwny!

He looked'back to where Hie rest of the company wore dug In, nnd It seemed a lot farther thnn a mile now. _ . There was nobody to cover his retreat. And he had gone only a "few yards when one of the'ad- vancing Japs got him. Ahgelo CaslclH had stayed until lie was sine his buddies would make It—then it was too late for him to escape.

THE ciiAitTEii coian BE AMENDED That, (he fjnol chnrlcr lo ho drawn \ip by tlie United' Nations In their mccling next year will not be a complete or unalterable doc- micnt Is Indicated by Chauter XI of the Dumbarton Oaks proposals, which outlines provision for amend- nents. Three stcjis aie Indicated by wlilcli the charter may be changed. First the Assembly must pa'fi on amendment by two-thirds voK'- Then It must lie ratified by the WcrnmciiU of all five nations having permanent, scats on the Security Council anil by a majority of the nations Inn-Ing seats In the Assembly. Failure to ratify by any one of Ihe big five nations would veto an amendment, under this proposal, Provision Is also innde for a transitional Arrangement? to maintain, peace and security, pending Hie time when the United Nations organization'can be set up, which may take n ycnr or possibly more. In this Interim period, the four nations represented at Dumbarton Oaks — the United States, Great Drllain, Soviet Russia and China— would ngcce lo consult with each other and with olhcr nations under provisions of the Declaration of Moscow signed In 1043. It also provides that nothing cs- InblLslied by the charter shall he In conflict, w lth the terms of peace Imposed on the defeated nations of Germany and Japan. TIIEIIE IS MUCH I.KKT UNSETTLED It becomes apparent from the foregoing attempt to analyze the proposnis for a United Nations organization in detail, that the representatives of Hie four nations meeting at Dumbarton .Oaks tried to foresee every important question that might arise. Nevertheless there were a number of questions on which these technicians In their seven weeks of deliberation could not agree. . One of these unsettled points was the question of voting and the veto !)OH-crof one of (he five permanent members of the Security Council as previously discussed; exact status of the new International Court ol Justice as a continuation or the old World Court al The Hague; manner of liquidating the old League of Nations functions and properties; the whole question of mandates established by the Treaty of Versailles; ft definition of "peace- loving slates,' and an act. of aggression; there was no discussion of military quotas to be made available to the Security Council for enforcing peace. What It needs now Is much discussion, In and out of Congress, to clarify public sentiment, determine public interest, dlclate' what national policy should be an^ what Auxiliary Group Backs Plan For Bible Reading That people of this section participate In the iiatloriwide daily Bible reading plan from now' until Christmas, along with members of the armed forces, is being asked-by' Die Woman's Auxiliary, First Presbyterian Church.
