MONDAY, MAT 15, 1950 China and Argentina Lag in UN Assessment BT.YTHEVTU.F, (ARK.y COUTURR NEWS' By MAX HAKKKLSON' ^ LAKE SUCCESS, May 15. (/!')— Wanted by Untied Nations: Good bill collector, preferably one who speaks Chinese and Spanish. That nd hasn't appeared In print yet and probably won't, because things are not done that way in the diplomatic world. U.N. officials, however, acknowledge they nrc worried about the unpaid 1940 assess, jgfrjts ol several countries, espe- Sjnry the large sums owed by China and Argentina. This year Is the first lime the U.N. has had any serious problem arising out of overdue assessments. There usually arc two or three small countries who tag a little behind, .but the balance clue for 1943 is $2,135,000. This as about' 6 1-2 per cent of the total budget of $41,051,000 as compared to less than 1 1-2 per cent overdue at this time Mast year on the 1948 assessments. Not Surprised U.N. officials are not surprised they are not gelling the 51.415,000 due from Chiang Kai-shek's hard- pressed Chinese government, but they don't know what to make of Argentina's delay. President .luan u Pi-roil hasn't paid anything at all ou his assessment of $750000 for 1949. These" two countries account tor most of the overdue funds, but 11 oilier countries still owe various amounts, ranging from $2.168 by Liberia to S140.000 by India. The •others in arrears are Bolivia. Chile. Costa Rica. Cuba. Guatemala. Iraq Ni'-aragua. Paraguay and Uruguay! U.N. officials take the position that no matter what happens in the fight over China representation In the world peace organization, China's U.N. assessments must be paid. In other words, (hey say that if the Chinese Communists get the sfjBj they will inherit the obliga- tt^f to pay the overdue assessments. These bills, including the amounts owed to the specialized agencies, now run wel] over $10,000,000. Tourists Advised To Avoid Animals WASHINGTON, May 19. («•>-..
