WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 194$ Sense of Futility Said to Prevail in U,N. Organization KARACHI — <3*>— Pakistan Foreign Minister Sir Mohammad Zafrnllah Khan said here that "a sense of futility and frustration prevails among the members of the United Nations organization." Writing in the Karachi weekly, the "Pakistan Horizon," Zafrullah attributed this feeling to "a weakness which has become rapidly apparent in the organization—of voting too often, particularly In the Security Council, for ulterior motives and considerations." He explained: "If a question arises affecting colonial power, whatever the merits of the case, other colonial powers are chary of taking a decision or endorsing action, which should be resented oy the colonial power concerned. Their guilty consciences make them fell that any one of them may be in the samft position next year in which a brother colonial power finds itself today." Zafrullah added: "An impression is gaining ground that sticccstful aggression by a determined and strong nation, which can win the support or sympathy of at least one permanent member of the Security Council, is likely to be condoned \ and would in time obtain the seal of, at least tacit approval."
