'' . ' , Now it faces a n*ew' crisis--how (o cut down on the .mimler-of its own-cocktail parties; A-, i , 'Here really bold action Is" called for. Why doesn't.the, U. N. "forget about abolishing war forgone session and put down', as the main task on 1 its agenda the problem' of outlawing all cocktail parties everywhere? "- , This could turn out to be a real ositive slop toward peace, Uni- ersal brotherhood and "the long- crm improvement of human wcl- arc.- ' " The growing nuisance of loo nany cocktail parlies at the U. N. was pointed out by Jose Maza ol Chile. As president of the 10th Gen eral Assembly, he hod to -attend as m any as lbre or four in day. Every fresh international ten slon seems to produce n torrcn of eocklail parties, which in dip Jomatic parlance are known as "r ceptions." "You have to drink ihe sam Scotch or the same manhattan and cat the same shrimps and tal to the self-same people," said President Maz'a, His description of this type of social _ function may well go down a s . t h e - g r e a t e s t understatement in the history o£ diplomacy. The average cocktail party isn't a party at all. It is an exercise in group self-punishment. U is a social ^battlefield, where men and women drink from a poisoned well while they build verbal towers of babble in a wilderness fog of smoke that would strangle a clcan : living Eskimo in 20 minutes, The cocktail parly isn't a feature of modern living. It is a fac- Ibr'in modern dying. Anyone who has ever'stood upright at a cocktail party ( a n d who ever gets to sit down at one?) can never forget Ihe sinking feeling in his arches, the popping out of new varicose veins, the slow numbness as of (Sealh creeping over him. 1 The total impact of this form of torture on mankind has never been measured, but it must be appalling. "Cocktail party stomach" and "cocktail parly fatigue" arc well known medical diseases now, and claim more victims than nis "x". Although it is little more than a century old, the martini, the 'most dangerous instrument at any cocktail parly, certainly has mowed-down more people than "the gatlfng gun. The origin of the cocklnil-party has never been authoritatively established. Legend - h a s it" t h a t , it was^ invented early in the 12th century by a Minsk c n v i a r manufacturer named Ivan Pelronovich in an attempt Itr unload-" an i oversupply of fish eggs. The Russians, who are · quick to claim ^every other invention, denounce thjs story as a capitalist canard.. Brit it wm he noted they still serve rfish eggs at most elite cocktail parlies.. . Even Ihe devil has friends, so it goes without .saying lhat cocktail parties have their defenders. They claim these affairs relieve social tension. The truth is they stir up new tensions. If you throw one cocktaij party to calm a-tension, you h a v e - t o hurl a'second one to cure th'e new. tensions, that grew out of the first. So-.thc evil chain rows. Actually nothing really good can be said for cocktail parlies. Nobody every got sober at one. un- ikclyj anybody e v e r . m a d e ong:'friend at one.. They're the world's poorest, places to borrow money. 3 Million Acres In Colo. Putin Winter Wheat May the Chmtmos season briog yow nwcfe boppi and a full measure of prosperity._j _ '·. If. the U.
