A Healthy Symbol This is a prophecy and n There's more disagreement in store for the United : Nations. How seriouf. thy forthcoming rift will be we can't say, *' ]but it is bound to give vise to bitter words, and hot disputes. The disagreement p'robnbly.- will start when the. time comes to soitct an architect to design the UN's pevmnn- ent 1 home on Manhattan Island. And it surly will attain sizeable propir.-clons when the architect's first sketches are submitted. For the physical situation of the headquarters site off era .problems that are going to give-the tradition .of-'public-building archito-'.tur'j a severe jolt, and possibly a permanent one.. Jltich of modern Europe's government arphileetitre is inherited. Some countries, like England, have preserved their royalty along with hails and tastles which for centuries have housed their succession of monarchs. Others, like France and Russia, have taken over the palaces of their deposed kings and emperors. If additions were needed, the models were alre-.tdy nt hand. -- Here in the United States thort was no problem when it was decided to build a capital city from scratch. "There was plenty of room to work in, and the whole rich architectural legacy of the past was at hand for inspirn- _ tion. But things arc going to be differ! .ent in .New York^ The U>! will be crowded into 18 acres, instead ol' the :,.ma.ny . square miles of upstatj New York and Connecticut that-were first requested. Bounded on one side by ,-vyater and on the others by a close- .pajcked'city, there will be no t^ace to go but up. So._the United Nations is pretty sure to be'''housed in a collection of skyscrapers, and that's wlievo the - -trouble is going to start. The skyscraper lias no esthetic background. Its purpose is functional. Its reason for being,-despite many imitations, is purely local. If the world's 'greatest business center hadn't chanced to be loca';-:l on an island whose demensions tire 12'/j by 12'Xj miles, there probably never would have been n skyscraper. The architecture of the United Nations will bo of the New World, and of New York. A lol of countries aren't going to like that. The proposed buildings won't conform to their conception of a beautiful edifice. We don't.envy the architect his job. We aren't even sure thiit the happiest compromise he can achieve will not be an affront to the eye. And yet we can't help believing that whatever finally emerges will be a healthy symbol, even if it isn't beautiful. It may be better to get away from the lien of the past, even in a-chitec- ture. Let the delegates to a hoiwful new union of nations have no visible reminders of Vienna, . Versailles: or Geneva. Let them, rather, work and live in buildings typical'of their surroundings. For those surroundfr>#s offer a pretty fair sample of world brotherhood. Tn the shadows of New York's skyscrapers dwell representatives of all the races of man, natives of dautenri- ants of every country in the U.V, and more. And in spite of occasional minor quarrels, they dwell there in peace — black and white, brown and yellow, Jew and Moslem, Greek and Bu'jfar' Hindu and Englishman. They arn the pilot plant of good mlcrnnlioiin; and supranational relations, which the UN must expand to global dimension*). The Race Is On On the day that Harold Slnssion announced his candidacy for the ,Ue- publican presidential nominal.iim in 1048, there came a report that President Truman might propose some changes in the Wagner Act to the. new Congress. This coincidence might 'serve as a definite reminder that Haivy Truman seems to be a candidate for President, too. Several of Mr. Truman's rcnent actions indicate that he has taken stock of the November vote and its implications, and .that he will strive to take the initiative away from the Republican Congress in giving the people what they obviously want; As a result, Mr. Truman is being spoken ol in decidedly less hopless or Pitying tones than he was a momli ago. At the moment his stock seems to have bounced baick. Of course November 1948, is a 'long way ahead. But right now, with the defeated Demoa-als apparently drawing log-other and the victorious Republicans beginnin.r to wrangle over power and priviiej/C Hie 19<I8 race shapes up as the hottest and closest in -decades, with ca<-ii side strong enough to worry the daylights out of the other. JIANNETTE COVERT NOLAK XVI to all her cxpecta- 'tions, Rose was having a good time in Washington. The journey •lone to Indianapolis had been •ccomplished .without mishap and there she had met her fellow- delegates and their chaperon, Mrs. Floriihre Bannock of St. Louis, whc. was sleekly groomed, evidently a woman of wide sophistication and not old at all, as Hose had~ feared she might bc. Mrs. Bannock expressed mild surprise . that Bessie Pomerojr did not again represent the Blakesville chapter (had Bessie's inadequacy finally been realized") but immediately took Rose under her capable wing. Arn*ed with Mamma's admonitions Rose was equal to the perplexities of Jhe night in the Pullman; and such was her poise, and her nimble contortions behind the green bai7c curtains, that she felt sure, stepping forth in the morn- inf, no other passengers would have- guessed how she had lain in a plaster ol Paris cast through all the hours of darkness, to keep her coiffure intact. She i looked neat as wax, and hot , coffee and toast in the dining car • «it««ly revivified her— which wjs , fortunate, because things began to *<*W*t almost E: soon as the party reached -Washington. At the WiHard Hotel, a slight confusion as to reservations con- trotted Mrs Bamibck; she said •paogeUratly that one of her **1*«* woula hay«; to take ttw ' ft — though she had fjr the firls to have con- roommates, It would be So *i«fh more fun. Rose instantly »*'«3 that she would not mind the md aplomb in an emergency. "I shall be just across the hall," ;aid Mrs. Bannock comfortingly. The truth was that Rose \vcl- :omed the opportunity to have n "oom quitt. to herself. She had lever befoic stayed in a hotel and everything l.ere was perfectly di•ine: the thick carpet and over- ituffcd armchair, the French >rints on the wall, the desk with 'resh pens and stationery, the >rass bed. She waited impatiently while a bellboy switched lighU ind opened the window. Then she went into jfe bathroom; with ;hining eyes she surveyed the white tile, the racks of soft towels, Ihc little bars of soap in striped wrappers. "I know now," Rose thought, 'what a bathroom ought to be," 4 * • TJNPACKING her luggage, she thought also of Sidney and \vhat a relief it was to be away from her for just this little while. To be free of Sid's scrutinizing, of which she for ws^ks had been conscious. Sid had been watching tier and, not an easy person to fool, she probably thought that Koae was acting funny. Well, Rose would admit to unnatural conduct, but she couldn't help it. No one knew better than she herself that slip hadn't been the same recently. "Not since f met.Rick," Rose admitted. "And I'll never be the same again." ., . Nor did she want to be. Of course, it was because of Rick that she had been so loath to leave Blakesville. When for weeks you've seen somebody every day and grown to count the day! solely to see him, when no other Person matters and all your emotions are bound up (such emotions as you never knew you had!) in the mere fact of his living and breathing and responding to your love—then i even the briefest •ration aeJem» i n (, laleflc Fate may Intervene to mnke the separation permanent "I couldn't stand it!" Rose (old rierself. "Hick is — just everv thing!" J)ICK had said he might be at the station to see her oft; she had hoped he would be, for it would have been a good moment for introductions, which she would somehow have contrived, ffhe fact was, Rose had fretted r.t the secrecy of their romance. Meeting in the park and other sequestered places mndo everything seem rather tawdry—like a nursemaid carrying on with the gruccr's boy. She wanted Rick to know her family, wanted to flaunt her pride in him and, anyway, until secrecy had been dispensed with, what future could there be lor the romance? Rose wonted a future for it. The present, though ecstatic, was not enough. Rut Rick hadn't come to the station. Well, she must write to him at once and tell him how she longed for him. . . . She was at the desk when Mrs. Bannock knocked. Was she ready for roll-call and luncheon? Yes, Rose said, sealing and stamping the note to Rick. "Writing your Blakesville beau, I'll wager," said Mrs. Bannock archly. "Nothing serious, I hope, because my nephew is coming up for the dance. tonight, and I've been thinking what a couple you and h« would make. Dixon Thayer. He lives in Stafford County and is a lawyer. University of. Virginia. Well, really, he's just my nephew by marriage, but I claim him, and when you meet him, you'll know why. Such a haidsome young man, and eligible in every sense of the word Money, a lovely old country house Oh, a great catch! But wary and stand-offish. For years I've invited him to the convocation balls, but untiHhis time he never would say he'd come." Rose was politely not listening, holding the letter In her hand ario thinking that soon It would touct Rick's hand, . . .
