MONDAY, APRIL 25, 1958 BI.YTHEVnXE (ARK.) COUKTER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Little Chance for Change in US Constitution or UN Charter Seen B? JAMES MABLOW AP N«w« Auljttt WASHINGTON (AP) — People with a desire to change things or let them alone — in this case the United States Constitution ind the United Nations Charter — have plenty of chance in 1955 to let off steam. In the end, probably neither document wll be changed. Onc« more Sen. Bricker (R-Ohio)+ urges the Constitution be amend, ed to limit a President's treaty- making power .Under the Constitu lion is it stands the Senate ctn block any treaty made by a president. Nevertheless Bricker and his fol lowers argue that somehow, someday, a treaty whhh gets by the Senate will do grave damage. "iy taking away American rights, Many Senate committee hearings on Bricker'a proposal. have been held In the past. Last year the Senate was tied in knots for weeks with debate on an amendment. Bricker has a lot of support. Loti of Oppoiltion He also has a lot of opposition, particularly from President Elsen- hower. Last year Bricker's rigid ideas were melted down into mild substitute amendment offered by Sen .George (D-Ga). In the Senate vote even this was defeated but by a narrow squeak The vote was 60-31, one vote less than needed to approve it. Any constitutional amendment requires a .two-thirds vote of Senate and House plus approval by three fourths of the states. So even if it had squeezed through the Senate it might have been defeated elsewhere. Bricker does not give up easily. He's back again, demanding another vote this year. A Senate subcommittee begins hearings on his proposal this week. But Bricker's chances look poorer this year than last. Decide IB Fall In the (all of 195! the United Nations will decide whether to hold ft conference on changing its charter which by then -;ill be 10 years old. This government ftvors such a conference. But. If it is held, any one of these five countries—The United States, Russia, Britain, France, Nationalist China—could kill with a veto any or all changes it didn't like. Since the United States and Rus>la are so far apart in their thinking on how the U. N. should be used or should operate, any changes both agreed on almost certainly would be minor and not basic. Nevertheless the State Department and the Senate, looking forward to the possibility of a conference, have been studying ideas and proposal* Jor charter revisions.
