First, it will run liend-on into Foreign Relations Committee opinion that no supplementary international agreements should be made until the Dumbarton Oaks thing is threshed out and a United Nations Organization to maintain peace mid security is a little'more of a reality. Second, it will be considered a violation of the Senate's request, delivered to the President by S"n Bennett Champ Clark's Commerce subcommittee on aviation, that no postwar /lying commitments be made until Congress determines policy. Third, It will clash with considerable congressional opinion that at Chicago under Belle's leadership the United States not only lost, its flv- ing shirt but also gave away its flying pants and boots when there was no reason for being that ireii- e rous. There are two sides to tills story and at tins'stage of the winged horse swapping it is impossible to make judgment. But behind one sitle of the story-belief in some aviation circles that the United ' States delegation gave away more ' air rights than it had to--there is- n likely explanation of what led to' the forced resignation of Adolph Berle as Assistant Secretary of State and an indication of what may happen next. TIIKKK WAS A "RELATIVE" ANGLE The trouble begins from the fact that then Secretary of Slate Corde.ll Hull, ill .overworked and primarily Interested in his big Dumbarton Oaks conference, handed the aviation problem to Uerle, brilliant New Dealer and Uooscvelt appointee. The (lien Undersecretary of state, Fd Stettlnius, being a brother-in-law of President Juan Trlppe of i'an- Amcrlcan Airlines, insisted that he be kept out of this deal for fear that clmrge.s- would lx> made he was permitting family relationships to Influence his decisions. This also explains why it was specified in Ihc newly proposed Slate Department reorganisation Mint the intornu- llonal aviation question be assigned lo Assistant Secretary - designate Will L, Clayton, with instructions Hint lie report directly lo the President, Anyway, with Hull and Sleltinins out of the picture and the President loo busy with the election to be bothered, Doric had a clear track. The Chicago agenda, as drawn up uy Berlc's inter-deparlmentiil committee, was announced by the Uc- paiiment of State Sept. 29. but the full U. S. delegation was not announced until Ocl. 27, less than n week before the parley WHS scheduled lo open on Nov. 1. Four members of Congress were named among (he 10 delegates- Senators Bailey of North Carolina and Brcwstcr of Maine, Representatives Biihvinkle of North Carolina and Wolverlon of New Jersey but they practically had lo muscle their way Into the lust pre-Chicago meetings of the American delegation, they had no hand in shaping the policies to be presented, and they sat down at the conference table uninformed.
