PAOBTWO BLTTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEW! TUESDAY, APRIL M, 1»W 10 Candles for United Nations: Is New Charter Cure for Ailing U. N.? By PETER EOSON NEA Staff Correspondent UNITED NATIONS — (NEA) — Revision of the United Nations charter adopted at San Francisco 10 years ago is pottible in two ways: Amendments to the charter may be approved at any tim« by a two-thirds majority vote in the General Assembly. This must be followed by ratification of the amendments by th* governments of two-thirds of the members, including all the permanent members of the Security Council, These are the united States, United Kingdom, Nationalist China, France and Russia. Any amendments not approved by the Soviet government could therefore never be adopted. A general conference of UN members to review the Charter may be called at nny time by a two-thirds majority vote In the General Assembly and any seven members of the ll-nation Security Council. A Russfar negative vote cannot block this procedure. • • * The Argentine proposed a charter revision conference at both the second and third UN sessions In 1B47 and 1948. It was defeated. At the eighth UN session in 1953 there were three proposals for charter revisions from the Argentine, Netherlands and Egypt. A proposal to nsk member countries for their views on charter revision lost 24 to 23. But n final resolution was adopted, calling for n compilation of unpublished Snn Francisco documents, a legislative history of the UN and all its specialized agencies. This 10-year history of the UN was promised for i954, but hasn't materialized yet. It is now scheduled for release in July, to prepare the UN members for consideration of charter revision. • • • The San Francisco charter provided that if no revision conference were called ki the meantime, this •ubjcct shall be placed on the agenda lor the tenth session of the Ofenerfti AMembly, which will meet In New York in September. If charter review is voted for, tjie conference might be held in 1956 or 1957 or even Inter. The post Russian view has been thnt no charter revision should be considered while there are world tensions. Since the Russians could veto nny itmendments even if they were adopted by a revision conference, many UN experts oppose any attempt to change the charter now. In spite of this negative view, U, S. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles has said that the Elsenhow- er administration will support the calling of a charter review conference this fall. Secretary I>utlex has not Announced any firm position which the U. S. delegation might take on charter amendments. But he has indicated some of the areas where changes might be considered: 1. Universality of membership, "Most of the United Nations," he snys, "feel it is better to have even discordant members . . . than to attempt to confine the membership to those who hold the same views." Soviet vetoes have denied membership to 14 countries, while seven Communist countries have been denied admission by majority vote. Letting them al! Ir would mean admitting Red China, which the United States has opposed. The present charter provides lor SIGNING THE UN CHARTER: While President Truman watched, Secretary of State Edward Stettlnlua signed United Na- tlong charter In fI«jr* bedecked atmosphere of peace at San Francisco. IN THFIR RAHU, V1SHINSKY: Secretary of Slate Duller and Vtouivr Roosevelt Hflten to an attack by Russia's lute foreign min- totor at * IMT UN s«MUoa. The Red wurtls were familiar. expulsion of non-cooperating members, but so far none has been expelled. 2. Security. "The greatest weakness of the UN," says Secretary Dulles, "... Is the Security Council's Inability to discharge Its primary responsibility for the maintenance of International pence." A proposed remedy 1? to Klve more power to the General Assembly. 3. The Veto. Should the veto power be taken away from the Security Council on questions like admission of new members and questions Involving' the peaceful settlement of disputes? "Presumably the United States Itself would hesitate to go much further than this in now surrendering Us veto power, says Dulles. 4. General Assembly voting; At the present time each country, largo or small, nas one vote. A suggested alternative is "weighted voting" In which population, resources and contributions lo the United Nations effort would determine the power of each vote. R. Disarmament and Atomic En- «riry Control. The problems rnlsed by nuclenr weapons were not known when the UN charter was adopted at San Francisco 10 year,s ago. The possibility of a new UN agency to deal with control of world armaments and the applications of atomic energy, under President Elsenhower's plan, has been proposed. A new disarmament role has been mnde nl! the more necessary since the United Nations has never been able to create the world ponce force lo maintain peace, as en- visaged at San Francisco. 6. International law. In the San Francisco charter, the General Assembly was called upon to develop and codify International law. It has made no progress, largely because the Communist countries do not recognize the application of moral laws to human affairs. What could be done about this by UN charter revision Is a little difficult to see. But If charter revision Is not the answer for whatever Is wrong; with tlie United Nations, some of the alternatives sometimes suggested .seem to offer little more hope. In fact,, most of the alternative suggestions have been rejected by the U. S. government. One group of extremists believes the United Nations is not strong enough. They propose calling conference to establish nn Atlantic Union or a World Federation as a super-government. At the other extreme' are those who think that Soviet Russia and its satellites should be kicked out of the United Nations. Or .that the United States should voluntarily get out. But for either the United Stales or the Soviet Union to get out of the United Nations would probably mean its end. "With all Its faults," says Sccre- Inry of State Dulles, "the United Nations as It Is is better than no United Nations at nli." Tomorrow: The UN box score.
