Hcnsleo said that personal observation of population trends M Die pen hns led him to believe that more men are being sentenced for cnr theft than for any other law violation.

Sonic people nre demanding that it.s charter be devised. Others arc losing fi-ilh that it ever can accomplish much. The reason is thai the UN Is caught in a bitter economic and political fight between the Soviet Union and the rest of tlie world 'Phut, at least, is tne explonu- tion given by ranking uncmber; of how discouraged the world is becoming while tlie Council and the ho Security Coimcil, who re;\!i?.e Atomic Energy Commission drone and wrangle without :;eemin<; to ;ct any-vheie at all.

I think, expected the United Nations to work automatically, ft taken ;imr to realize that disorder in human al- fairs. sharply inn-cased by years of total war, cannot he quickly and easily removed." THE BIG ISSUES Great things arc under consideration out here in the temporary cnpitol of the world. The future of the. atom bomb is at stake-and the pacification of the Balkans which lor centuries have been the fertile ivomb of genera! warsS-and the age-old issue of world Jewry and its claim to Pal- esline — and maybe the question whether Russia should and shall participate acthcly in civil war in China. lAny of these issues might touch off World 'War III. unless it is handled right. -Some of them have 'icon debated for months, with little progress. The stakes lire great, tempers, arc on edge. Yet Ihe Security Council drones on Even when Greek and Alba representatives exchange charge and countercharge, or when Gromyko tells Hud^son or our own alternate, Herschel Johnson, to' mind Ills own business and hold bis tongue, insults usually are ex- rhallned so -monotonously that lay ic'ctators miss the point until H'y read it later. Tliis is the atmosphere of diplomacy, of course. 'But also it reflects the situation that scvenil top delegates agree underlies the whole UN problem.
