COURIER NEWS MONDAY, APRIL 25, 1985 10Candles for United Nations: 7945 CharterConferenceWorld's Greatest International Gab Fest UNITE D NATIONS (NEA) — There never was, and there probably never will be, another international gab fest like the United Nations Charter conference at San Francisco, April 25 to June 26, ' 1945 _ just 10 years ago. By PETER EDSOV NEA Staff Correspondent A thousand colorful representatives of 30 nations in attendance. Europeans in Homburgs. Indians in turbans. Communists in caps. Arabs in bumocse and robe, dazzling the natives and saying "You should see us on horseback." . More reporters, from all over the world, than delegates. Church groups. Women's clubs, luncheon clubs, A lunatic fringe of crackpots for good measure. As "advisers" and "consultants" they were herded in sideshow auditoriums and allowed to spout. Beautiful, cosmopolitan San Francisco threw a welcome mat on «very hill, hearthstone and trolley itep. There was a two months' atmosphere of carnival over the whole Bay area. Bored by four years of war Weariness and rationing, dull care was banished and joy was unconfined. Peace, it was go- Ing to be wonderful. Eternal spring was in the air. No Togs, real or imaginary, drifted in from the far Pacific fit this season. Such political clouds as appearing on the horizon were no bigger than a babe's hand. All were dissolved, by compromise, or so the delegates thought. VyacheBlav Molotov, the chief Russian delegate, came expecting to stay three days and stayed three weeks. Even he left thinking everything was going to be dandy. He •aid the Big Four had reached unanimity in the world security organization, There is something of a temptation today to think.that all those delegatee who met in the, San Francisco civic auditorium 10 years ngo were naive gnbes in tho giant redwoods. Maybe they were. But their survivors who are still in governments here, there and around the world deny it. They foresaw, they say, that it would not all be sweetness iuul light thereafter. There were a few realists around who feared what lay •head. They tried to cry warnings, but npbody minded. Look whnt they wrote in the preamble to the UN Charter ns their purposes and principles: "1. To maintain peace and security "2. To develop friendly relations among nations. . . . "3. To achieve international cooperation in solving International INTERNATIONAL OAB FEST: rhl» wai the no the United Nations.

Nobody could be against those objectives. It must have been the world thai changed. It wiia three weeks after the UN chnrtcr was signed at San Francisco that the first atomic bomb was tested al Alamogbrdb, N.M. It was six weeks after the charter was signed Hint the first real bombs were dropped on Jnpo,n, to end the wnr. There were n lew people at San Francisco who knew that tht; bomb was being developed. But no one anyplace knew what terrific impact It would mnkc on the next 10 years of history without ever being used in fictunl wurfare. There were other signs nnd portents nt San Francisco of troubles abend, The Polish question cnme up the first day of (he conference. It was whether to recognize the Polish government in exile, in London or the ptippej. government, set up by the Russians in Lublin. When the Russians proposed Unit the Lublin government be represented nl, Hun Francisco, the conference turned It down. Then the Russians seized the London Poles on their way back to Lublin. * • • That should hiivft wjirnprf everybody on the future Communist pro- QUICK reaching 1 fo founding.

That applied also to the veto Australia's Herbert Vare EvaLt led the little countries' fight against, lhat, but they lost. The United States, Britain and China favored denying a vote to any major power Involved in a conflict, but Russia held out against It. The 'Russians tried to limit General Assembly power to discuss questions relating to international pecac and security. This one they had to give In on. The Russians demanded a gag rule on everything and this threatened to blow up the conference. Harrp. Hopkins find Avercll Hnrrl- miin were rushed to Moscow to talk it over with Stalin.

To (juotc from the article: "What a difference between using religion as a shield for a guilty conscience and using it to get rid of one! Perhaps the gang will not like It. And perhaps a young Christian Is a square. But if being a sincere consecrated Christian Is not thing I. do, then as a young Christian business man once said, "We'll put on a dunce cap and wear It for the Lord. "There is no substitute for the love and friendship that is typical among Christian friends. It would be impossible to forget some of the uniquely wonderful ways I have come to know some of the friends I have met because I would not compromise for the sake of society. "I believe that without such fellowship on earth, man cannot know fellowship in heaven. And, so, says our Holy Bible, God created man to have fellowship with."
