FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1«, 198S BIATHFVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE ELEVEN UN 'Statesmanship' In Member skip Fuss Didn't Look Pretty By JAMES MARI.OW Asioelitcd Frm New» Aialysi WASHINGTON (AP) — When the United Nations diplo mats get something done it is called statesmanship. But if labor unions and management took as long to agree on a contract, or did as many flip-flops, they'd be out of business. When the U. N. Wednesday ted 16 new members it climaxed a whole scries of somersaults — go- IIIR back for years — by the U. N. membership in general and the UUT States and Russia in particular. No one looked very pretty membership In general and the United States and Russia in particular. No one looked very pretty in this one. Take the case of Spain. Since 1946 the U.N. had approved » series of resolutions to keep Spain out. In 1945 the United States suggested the Spanish people ought to get rid of their dictator, Francisco Franco. Opposed Spain was just as opposed po U.N. membership for Spain. But time passed. The cold war began. And the United States wanted .military bases in Spain a« outposts asninst Russian attack. Spain agreed. Russia anxious to get some of her satellites into the U.K., knew she couldn't if she tried to. block Spain, which now had 0. S. sup- rt. The result: Yesterday Spain admitted overwhelmingly. with the United States and Russia voting for her. Take the case ot Outer Mongolia, which declared Itself a republic in 1945 and was recognized the same year by Nationalist China. In 1»46 the United States and Nationalist China both backed Outer Mongolia for U. N. membership. But In 1941 Mongolian and Nationalist Chinese troops were fighting and Nationalist China, in ally of this country, changed Its mind. And so did the United States. Time passed. Worked Oat Deal This fall the U. N. members — In Oi-der finally to get in some of the nations which hid been ci-ylng for membership In the U. N. for yean — worked out a deal: 18 new members would bt admitted'; five ot them, Including Outer Man. Memphs Mon Finds Business Booming in Segregation Fight- golla, would be Soviet aitelllteS; the other IS would be nonsatellltes. Russia warneJ that if her satellites were vetoed — a veto could keep out an applicant for membership — she'd veto the 13 nonsatel- lites. The United States didn't want Outer Mongolia in. But this country was under pressure by the other U. N. members not to wreck this deal. It agreed not to use the veto So It abstained from voting at all on Outer Mongolia. The United States also urged Nationalist China not to use the veto But the Chinese paid no attention and vetoed membership for Outer Mongolia. This got practically everybody sore In the U. N.. including Russia, »hlch tepts its threat to veto the 13 nonsatellite countries. This was Tuesday and things were in a til. The United States and Russia were blaming each other for blowing up the whole plan. Then Russia proposed a compro- stay vetoed but in turn would veto membership for Japan and then all the others—a total of 16 nations now — could be admitted, and that's Just what happened. MEMPHIS Of)—Business I; boo:,. Ing for Harry William Pyle, 75, m retired paperhanger who organ- lied The Pro-Southerners, a group dedicated to keeping racial segregation. The recent influx of paying members here pleasantly surprised Pyle, who got nowhere in 1932 with another outfit he founded, the Loyal Order of Americans. "We started out in July with four members," Jimmy Piersol, acting county chairman, told a recent rally. "Who would have thought we'd have 3,000 in Memphis in five months?" Pyle, a wrinkled, genial fellow who hai been promoting causes or one sort or another since the IMfe, feels that at last he has a winner. Craiy to Orfanlie 'You don't realize how crazy people arc to organize," he said. "I expect to have 10,000 members in Shelby County by March. 'I've taken in 470 members so far this week." Pro-Southerner membership records are secret. To get in, you put up $2, and promise to "help both local and headquarters to the end that we may retain our white citizen's rights on segregation." "One dollar goes to the county organization," says Pyle. "The other goes to national headquarters. I'm part of that." "National headquarters" is the residence of M. B. Sherrill, an ok friend of Pyle's, In Fort Pierce, la. Mare Than Million Sherrill said yesterday he is secretary-treasurer of The Pro- Southerners and the membership is more than a million—a figure that brought a sparkle to Pyle's eye. "Gee, he sure picked that one out oi 1 the air didn't he?" Pyle salii today. "Well, we've got about 8,000 members." Pyle was amused by the curiosi- ty of reporteri on the subject of dues. Dues go for expenses only, he said, and neither, he nor Sher-' rill receives a salary. Pyle has no fear of adverse publicity. The Pro-Southerners often assail the press as controlled by Communists of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. What he considers the "big danger" to his fight against racial integration are the feuds which oft- W.tch Cleaning $3.50 3 day Service Mr. A. B.
