If the United Nations Charter were to! be taken as Holy Writ, then Andrei Gromyko, Soviet delegate to the Security Council, would be on solid ground in his objection to the Bnruch plan for control of atomic energy. • The proposed Internationa) Atomic Development Authority, says Mr. Gromyko, "would he independent of. the Security Council and would have almost full autonomy. This cannot he reconciled with the Ctuaipi- of the United Nations." And indeed the Charter docs state that the. Security Council shall have "primary responsibility for the maintenance oi inltniaiiunal peace and security." ' . &*£IS ; Mr. .Gromyko complains that the proposed ADA would infringe on the principle of sovereignty and endanger the whole existence and future of the United Nations, and that-it would con- tiiavene Articla 2, Paragraph 7, of the, which staterf: "Nothing contained in the present . Charter shall authorize the United Nations to intervene in ; 1- -ttorp which are essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of any state or shall inquire Members to submit such matters to settlement under the present Charter." /, . •'•' ' ' * ' * ' ;0f coijrse, Mr. Gromyko objects to the waiving of the veto power as applied to punishing a government found to be developing atomic energy for destructive purposes; . He speaks of thisi as ^undermining "the principle"—which unfortunately ia not always the prac-.' tice-i-pof the unanimity'of the pevnia£ nent members of the Security Council." ;'AH "this is correct according to the letter of the text. But the United Na- tiofis Charter is not Holy Writ. It was written, when 'only a handful oT men .even dreamed of the imminence of this nefr power which, as Mr. Baruch put it,^has "damned every man to be the slave of fear." It is a set of rules achieved through argument and compromise by a group of governments united in the . desire for peace but sharply divided by divergent ideals, philosophies, -strengths and national interests. A wholesale revaluation of accepted theories of government, society and science has been made necessary by the military aspects of atomic power. This need for revaluation centers inevitably on the United Nations. Why, then, must Mr. Gromyko talk as if the Charter were a perfect and etemal instrument? Obviously that is a slrategem. The Baruch plan runs counter to the Russian plan, which would, in the end, allow any of the great powers to violate the agreement outlawing atomic militari.-nn and, by the veto, check any threatened punishment. But since the stratcgem is used it points a way to solution. For there ia a hint of flexibility in the phrase, "present Charter," quoted above. The present Charter is not permanent and immutable. It can be amended, and it must be, somehow, by the General "Assembly—even though Russia probably will endeavor to veto the right to veto the veto.

But It's one a 'columnist likes to write. It is the story of a fallen star, of a young fellow with "two chips Ion each shoulder" whose head got too big for Hollywood, It, is a success story In reverse, with some pretty sordid moments in it. From a star the young fellow became a fry cook and a railroad yard-checker. Hut there were unha'ppier moments.

He kept taking it on the chin— | ancl he kept coming back. A year ago he landed a small role at M-G-M in Ihe movie "What Nisei, Corporal Hargrove?" He was gcod. There wasn't another job lor Almost a year, though. Hollywood remembered him as "hard to handle—conceited—ii big shot." Casti ing directors said, "No. thanks'." | Then came a break, a si'concl lead in a new Paramount picture |"Jungle Flight." for Producers Bil i Pine nnd Bill Thomas. The filir .will be released soon. 1 You'll probably recognize the youn gfellow when you sec him !! the picture. His mime is Robert Kent, and he had the courage to tell us: "I was n heel. I had two liips on each shoulder. But I fee I've paid for it in 10 years." Ten years ago Hobert Kent was one of Hollywood's brightest young stars. "People kept telling m c I wa.',' real. They said I should ask for nore money imd bigger roles. They aid 1 should get a swimming pool nd a big car. 1 believed them. Success went to my head. 1 told the itudlo (20th Century-Fox) thai I wanted more money or they could ear up my contract." Kent grinned. "Thev tor K up the contract, and : couldn't get a job.

I'm putting the house up for sole —besides, I've clw.iys liked the idea of raising Cecily iu a smaller place. You're so well settled now, I won't have to worry about you." Not have to worry about me! Thorne was worse. My heart beat so hnrd thai I had strength only for a whisper. "Where arc you going?" My apparent weakness seemed to reassure her. Some of the natural vibrancy returned to her voice. "Of course I don't really know yet—" I cnught her wrist aurl my finders kit red marks on her flesh. "Delia—you'll not do this to me! You'll not leave here until t know exactly where you're going!"
