St. Francis' Committee Prepares For Carnival Retiring Nurse Honored At Dinner New Hnven, O=t. 20—fUP>—The retiring director of the Now Haven Visiting Nurses Association— Miss Elizabeth G. Fox—has hef.n honored at a testimonial dinner, The principal speaker at the dinner was Dr. Thornais Parran, dean of the Pittsburgh University graduate school of .public health, -ind former surgeon-general of che Onitefl States. •. . • Dr. Parran said that ono ot trio TOP sons for the shortage of nurses U th.rrt parents want th?ir ch-;!ircn to follow, an ''easier road." - has dnne nothing in the organization. "It is mostly not. there", he said, "and is up only when political action is to be taken, which Russia is represented at the Security Council and on the Economic and Social Council. It boycotted the Trusteeship Council until a year or so ago when it joined because of its interest in the Italian colonies. Now that has been settled. Rusia may boycott the Trusteeship .Council again. Russia boycotts meetings of all apencie under the economic endeivnrs of the UN." Riir-sla W!?l Sfay Maintaining that Russia will not walk out on Berlin talks, he said that rather it will stay in to try to stop proposed action. The professor said. "I believe in the UN for the same reasons that I believe in the League of Nations. The League did not and could not fail, as it was never created as a power, but as a tool The powers did fail to use tha League. The tool was there." He continued, ''The UN is there as a tool, but. only if sovereign powers are willing, can it setfl" disputes. The membership of the United Nations is a little fuller than the League, but the same weaknesses are there." There are no more national j states, he maintains, and soon all nations must choose between a world government ( ,r being a satellite. .He said, "The two nations which would block world government are the United States and Itussia. A sovereign must defend itself cr not longer be a sovereign Sovereigns are disappearing, and j many have- already disappeared." Speaking- of the good work done by the League and United Nations, which he said "probably justjfics their existence", he added that the UN problem is great and requires many funds. Declaring that the slowest thing to change is human nature, he I stressed that it will have to j change so that it may politically ' stop war," In conclusion he said that "trade rivalries have to cause war, but trade is the greatest force to bring the world together. If there is a war in the next 30 years I can't tell what issue or situation will start it, but the underlying question will be whether communism and capitalism can live side by side. In my opinion they cannot live together." Billings Presides Herbert Billings, president, conducted the evening's activities and introduced those sitting at the head table.
