The next niove may well he consideration of the proposals, and the resolution of problems left hanging at Dumbarton Oaks, by President Roosevelt. Premier Josef Stalin, and Prime Minister Winston Churchill at a meeting In the reasonably neur future. The full I'nited Nations conference would follow. Incomplete as they are. the proposals announced today represent a milestone in mankind's centurle.s-old striving for peace. They have been presented for all the world to see after seven weeks of conferences which aroused criticism beenusp of their secrecy. They inevitably will intensify the debate on international security which has been going on sporadically in the Allied nations. In this country, despite the presidential campaign, the planning for world peace has been on a nonpar- lisan basis. Weeks ago Secretary of Stale Cordcll Hull laid the administration's cards before John Foster I Dulles, foreign affairs adviser to ! Governor Thomas K. Dewey, the Republican presidential nominee. ; Nevertheless, congressional debate ' is ex-peeled to be untrammeled. Already in existence is a Senate bloc i opposed to formulation of any kind ! of world pence organization until the peace treaties have been ratified. In making public the Dumbarton Oaks proposals, Hull described them as an effort "lo make permanent a victory purchased at so heavy a cost in blood, in tragic suffering, and in treasure." Hull and his British, Russian, and Chinese counterparts started the j four big nations on the road toward a world organization a year ago this ' month at the Moscow conference, j Today, he warned: j "The road . . . will be long. At j times, it will be difficult . . . but ! we must be constantly mindful of j the price which all of us will pay if we fall to measure up to this unprecedented responsibility." i To eradicate or reduce some of the causes of war. the plan would establish the IS-natlon economic and i social council, under the jurisdiction ', of the general assembly of nil peace- ' loving nations, to deal with economic, social. and humanitarian . problems, and to co-ordinate the work of specialized international organizations already in existence or ' being planned. ' The armed forces to be placed at the disposal of "The United Nations" would he determined by member i states through special agreements j among themselves, such agreements to be approved by the security ' council and ratified by the signatory j states according lo their own con- ! stitutional processes. ! The strategic direction of the i armed forces, when called into action by the council against an gressor, would be provided by the "military staff committee" Other functions of the military staff committee would be to advise the security council on all question relating to military requirements for maintaining peace, the employment and command of forces placed at its disposal, the regulation of armaments, and possible disarmament. The proposals include this special section relating to use of air forces: "In order to enable urgent military measures to be taken by the organization there should be held Immediately available by the members of the organization national air force contingents for combined international enforcement action. The strength and degree of readiness of these contingents and plans for their combined aciion should be determined by the security council with the assistance of the mililary staff committee within the limits laid down in the special agreement or agreements (on allocation of forces) ..." In reporting to Hull. Undersecretary of Stale Kdward R. Slettinius, Jr., who was chairman of Ihe Dumbarton Oaks meetings, emphasized that the proposals "comprise substantial contributions by each nation." He called the unsettled issues important hut "not in any sense Insuperable." and recommended immediate steps to fill In the gaps. As made public by the slate department here and simultaneously by i ho foreign offices in London, .Moscow and Chungking, the proposals call for: 1. The general assembly of all nations lo mecl once a year and decide important decisions by a two- thirds vote, each member having mako recommendations, but would refer any such questions requiring action to the security council. -'. The economic and social conn cil of IS nations whose members would be elected for three-year terms by the assembly. It would function under the assembly to facilitate "solutions of international economic, social, and other humanitarian problems and promote respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms." !!. The security council of 11 members—permanent seats to go to the big four and, "in due course." to France: six seats to be non-permanent and filled by a two-thirds vote of the assembly for two-year terms. Ths council would be charged with maintaining peace by settling disputes through pacific machinery and with suppressing aggression by diplomatic or economic sanctions, or by the use of the armed forces of members of the organization. 4. The military staff committee, which would be continuation of the present liritisli-Aiiierican combined chiefs of .staff idea expanded to include tho chiefs of staff of Kussui and China, and, eventually. France. ."). An international court of justice, with decision on whether to continue the statute of the old league's permanent court of international justice with desirable modifications or to draft a new statute deferred for a future meeting ol international jurists. After deciding that a threat lo peace exists, the security council would be empowered to: 1. Determine whal diplomatic economic, or other measures not Involving force should he employed, and call upon members lo apply them. Such measures could include complete, or partial interruption of rail, sea, air, postal, telegraphic, radio, lind other means of communication and the severance of diplomatic and economic relations, 2. Order such aciion by air, naval, or land forces as might be necessary to restore or maintain international peace ;uid security. Such aciion could include demonstrations, blockade, and other operations by air. sea, and land forces o£ member countries. To prepare for military action, the proposals recommended that members of "Ihe United Nations" should undertake to make available to the security council, "on its call and in accordance wilh special agreement or agreements concluded among themselves, armed forces, facilities and assistance necessary, . . . such agreement or agreements (to) govern the numbers and types of forces and the nature of facilities and assistance to be provided." A special provision in tile proposals would safeguard "regional arrangements or agencies" already existing for the maintenance of peace —such a.s the Pan-American treaties —and settlement of local disputes through regional arrangements would be encouraged. The proposals included general principles of "The United Nations," keyed to "sovereign equality of all peace-loving nations: agreement to refrain from the threat or use of - | force inconsistent with the interna- i tional organization, and acceptance of the obligation to refrain from aid, ing states against which action is i being taken by the organization. i The keynote of the proposals is i in the first paragraph of the document, which states that the purpose of the organization shoud be: ; "To maintain international peace 1 and security, and to that end to take ] effective collective measures for the prevention and removal of threats | to the peace and the suppression of j acts of aggression or other breaches of the peace, and to bring about by peaceful moans adjustment or settlement of international disputes which may lead to a breach of the peace."

A mile on cither side of the road, two other American columns were keeping pace and swept through Barbarolo and Monte Cas- tellazi. both about 12 miles from Bologna. Other American forces, thrilling northeastward toward Imola. captured the villages of Monte Morosinn and I'ogglo del Kalchotio to bring; their lines within S miles of the big road and rail junction. Along the IL'-mile front between. Bologna and Imola, there were growing Indications that the Germans intended to put up a heavy fight to stave off nn Allied breakthrough into the Po valley.
