Flanders' Impractical Proposal Could Ruin UN Senator Flanders of Vermont has proposed two unusual riders lo the ratification of the North Atlantic Treaty. His motives are not suspect, for there is nothing in his voting record to indicate that he would wish to kill the pact, Yel he would have the pact members form a sort of UN within the UN. He also suggests a leaflet "bombardment" of Russia lo bring about peace. Mr. Flanders' "little United Nations" would be formed by the .12 members o[ the alliance inside the UN framework. It would abolish or drastically modify the veto power against aggression, And it would consider important matters outside the treaty's scope which affect the UN as a whole. Something certainly needs to be done about the veto. Its abuse by Russia has made the organization an extremely lame duck, if not a dead one. But it is hard to see how this proposal would be of much benefit. In the first place, the velo power remains in the UN Charter. The proposed smaller group apparently would have to abide by the Charter in order lo be a part of the UN. Yet it would be operating contrary to basic Charter rule. Any attempt to determine aggression and act against it, while excluding Russia and the veto power, would be wholly without authority under the present setup. The only way the group might function would be as a competing organization. Kor, however wrong the veto may be, the 1^-natton organization could not act as a UN subsidiary unless it played according to UN rules. The only practical use that we can see for such an organization wotdd be a quick action in case Russia attacked a UN member which is not a signatory of the North Atlantic Treaty—Sweden or Turkey or Iran, perhaps. Such action would certainly be desirable. The question is whether it would be desirable enough lo excuse wrecking the UN. For thai is undoubtedly what would happen. The very formation of a "little UN" would be a severe blow lo the world organization, whether or not there was danger of attack on a non-treaty member. Russia has very nearly destroyed the UN's peace-keeping effectiveness by overworking one of the organization's rules. But could 12 nations restore that effectiveness by assuming the Security Council's function while ignoring that rule? It doesn't seem likely. Soviet charges that the North Atlantic Treaty is out to destroy the UN have been unimpressive. Bui those charges might get more attention if the treaty members went on from their regional security agreement, which the Charter permits, lo become a policymaking and policy-enforcing arm of the The girders ol a monuincmn!

Sonic of them, Indeed, are wondering whether the UN will hold together long enough lo move into the buildings. There is speculation as to whether they niny nol prove even more useless tlinn the white palncc on the greensward running up Iroin the Luke of Geneva. The spirit of today Is very different from that which prevailed on those fine spring days in San Francisco four years ago.

U did not seem unreasonable that the parluer- sUip of the battlefield should be carried on niter (he sworct was shenlhetl. The UN was not expected to draft M-catles. It was supposed to help keep the peace once that bad been arranged. But so far, Irealies have been signed only wilh Ihe lesser enemy states. The disagreement ot the Soviet Union with its Western allies has widened into the cold wnr. Ami the UN has never drawn a breath of the atmosphere in which ll was sup- [K>sed to live. There can be no argumenl about the I act that, in tills situation, Hie UN has lost presligc. The velo—which in the beginning was regarded largely as a device for reassuring the United States Senalc 'and which was opposed primarily by Ihe small powers as a limitation of their sov- ereignly—-his been turned into a paralyzing device by Ihe Russians. Their representatives have used it no less than 30 limes. So it is not surprising that olher governments should have conic to donbt the etficacy ol the UN. The most recent evidence If this is Die Atlantic Pact. Willie this fits Into the letter o! tlie UN law, it obviously is a device adopted only because tile signatories believe 11 protects them more effectively than does the UN. The intei national organisation, of course, is not without its accomplishments. Rul they seem small in the face of the world's great unsolved problem: the conflict of East and West. Actually, tins conflict prevents the UN from being fully useful. Its functioning is predicated on harmony between the great powers. It was not created to brinp about that harmony. And yet it may do so. Its greatest value is thai ]l keeps the parlies lo, the big quarrel logclher. So long as they keep coming to the same table, there is the possibility that they may eventually agree. Certainly, no other world organization can be imagined which would function any better under present coiutnlciis.

He accepted their homage and plaudits, as they cast their garments in the way. and hp.lled Him with their "Hosannas." He. who had been Muster and Teacher, now became Savior and Klr.p. "Blessed be the Kin;: that comcth in the name of the Lord." The Messinhship of Jesus was now fully proclaimed, though His ministry was yet to find its fulfil- ment in 5Iis death and resurrection.

Unic-light In International spccula-V^ tion. The reason is of course that such si move might tend towards (whisper) and eliding of the "cold war." Diplomatic sources In Moscow said yesterday that the reopening of the Berlin question, if handled correctly, could lead to that happy goal, An American quarter remarked: "Something is cooking. At this point it doesn't smell bad." That non-committal summary reflects both hope and suspicion—a feeling which is mutual. Both sides are proceeding with Hie utmost caution, The United Stales did make a positive move Wednesday, This was delivery of a note by Phillip C. Jcs- sup, American ambassador-at-large, to Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Jakob A. Malik, in New York, asking the Russians for a formal statement as to when and on what conditions they would lift the blockade. Fear Hidden Motive' Back of tliis note is the real hp"« that the Muscovites mean busm- There also Is the suspicion that ise may be hidden in the offer—for instance the icuttling of the new German repn- )lic comprising the three Wester)^ iones of occupation. Moscow h&W' opposed this project hotly. Obviously il isn't love of the lated capitalistic democracies which :\as impelled Moscow to make this offer. As I pointed out in yesterday's column, it could be that the Russian bear is feeling the chill ol the "cold war" in his own bones He may really want easement ol the struggle.

But lie believes such [>oinls as the sole right of Congress to declare war for the United States should be spelled out more clearly. Senator Taft also indicates he is opposed to rearming Europe, believing that will force Russia to go to war, instead of bringing pence. Tuft believes the Senate Foreign Relations Committee may take three or four weeks for public hearings on the pact. Senate floor debate may take two or three weeks more. That nrans no ratification —with or without reservations—before June. and stories about the somewhat fur- Oon. Lucius D. Clay's military government administration of cartels.

Communism and the Soviet Union are on the defensive in En- rope. Certainly the indications are that the Communist drive to sweep across Western Europe to the English Channel reached a dead end some time ago. The signing of the Atlantic pact put the finishing touches on a barrier which the Muscovites couldn't hope to breach.

In any event, whatever may be. the exact motive behind the Russian move regarding the blockade, there is one immutable fact which we shouldn't overlook: While the tactics of the Communist world revolution are bound to vary according to circumstances, and strong-arm methods may be abandoned in certain cases, the. global drive will continue.
