Vote Spurned UNITED NATIONS, N.Y., leading role in the Allied victory (AP) _ A primer on voting over Germany. Even though strength at the United Nations their independence may have might go something like this: been questioned by many coun- What power has three votes in the United Nations? The Soviet Union. What nation spurned a chance to have the same? Tire United States. Does it matter? Not discernibly. The vote of a tiny member of the United Nations is equal to that'of a major power in the General Assembly. This is frequently discussed, pro and con, but diplomats here have all but forgotten a deal 23 years ago which could have given the United States multiple votes. The agreement reached at Yalta in February 1945 in effect gave the Soviet Union three seats in the projected United Nations, and pledged an equal number of votes to the United States—if desired. Part of the pact was put into i effect when the Soviet Ukraine j and Byleorussia were invited | without opposition to become • founding members along with the Soviet Union. The provision for three U.S. votes was kept secret at the time by President Franklin. D. Roosevelt and was never put into effect. No details were ever worked out as to how the United States would cast the three votes. . Although the U.N. membership of the Ukraine and Byelorussia was approved without objection, there is no certainty that the San Francisco conference would have endorsed'mul- tiple votes for the United States, if such a proposal had been presented. The Ukraine and Byelorussia were proposed as independent countries which had played a tries, there was an emotional factor in their favor. Some high American officials involved in the agreement had their doubts about support for the U.S. part of the deal. They votes for the United States! would have made any difference. A search of the records fails to disclose a single instance in which the votes of the Ukraine and B y e 1 o r u s sia changed the outcome of a U.N. decision. In the .first years of the United Nations, the presence of the two feared that presentation .of a j Soviet republics did give the proposal for three.U.S. votes might result in a rejection of the whole Yalta agreement. On the basis of U.N. Voting over the past two decades, it is Kremlin some moral support because they were the main part of the Soviet bloc, which consisted only of them and Poland. Their presence lost some doubtful whether two extra! of its significance when the So- viet bloc expanded to 10 members. The Ukraine and Byelorussia have never played a major role liere, even though they have sent two or three interesting personalities to the United Nations. The most colorful perhaps was Dimitri Manuilsky, Bolshevik leader and foreign minister of the Ukraine, He was elected chairman of the important Political Committee of the General Assembly in 1946. Another well-known figure was Kurnia V. Kiselev, foreign minister of Byelorussia, who attended many sessions of the NOT A FLYING CAR, but tt« Russian Maxl under a Soviet TU-104 aircraft in Moscow.
