TWO BLYTHEVn.LE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Rtzpatrick Warns Against Adopting of UN Treaties' ' HOT SPRINGS, Ark. 1A—A Pu- litzer'prize-winning editor said here today Americans may lose their constitutional guaranlces if the United Slates ndopis certain treaties proposed by the United Nations. In nn address prepared for delivery before (he Arkansas Bar Association, Editor William H. FitzPatrick of the New Orleans Stales declared: "\Ve nre asV;ed to limit, except and restrict historic rights simply to meet upon n command ground of agreement with other nations whose people do not understand, JIQT value, nor in sonic t-u-sos desire the freedoms of which we are the inheritors." Fitzpatrick spoke on "Government by Treaty," which also WHS (he general subject of n series of editoriEis which won him n Pulitzer prize in 1951. He said "there are a number of dangerous iron ties which have been proposed by the United Nations" — dangerous, in his view, because the principles they outline f;)! far short of American beJir-f:i and constitutional guarantees on the same subjects nnd because they offer inadequate protection for citizens of ihfs country. The United States Constitution Itself, Fitzpnlrick saUJ, provides that treaties become the supreme law of the land. He pointed to a U. S. Supreme Court decision which he said show cd It was possible to enact through treaty n law which otherwise would be unconstitutional. He saltl the original federal Migratory Bird Act was declared as a usurpation of state powers, but thai a second almost identical, act was ruled constitutional because it was in Implementation of a treaty with Great Britain. FH'/i>ntrick discussed in detail two of the proposed United Nations treaties which he termed dangerous: 'Hie Genocide Convention and the Covenant on Human Rights. "No decent person," Pit-pat rick MI ill, "can quarrel with the announced objectives of this (Ocno- cldej Convention — ihe outlawing of mnss murder of ft racial, religious or ethnical group." "Bui," he added, "the Genocide Convention goes far beyond these announced objectives. The Genocide Convention makes mandatory the shipment oversea;? of Americans accused of genocide committed abroad, and proponents of the Convention plan n crlmlnnl chamber to try any American accused of genocide whet ever the International Court of Justice might be silting even if that alleged offense WHS committed In his own home. "what happens here to the American right of trial by jury tn the state and district in which ihe crime nHcgctliy occurred, as is guaranteed all of us by Article C '-of the Hill of Rights?"
