Yet the UN, however much it may £crsi, canrot ignore that ultimate purpose, which ifa that man shall be permitted • to live out his clays in peace, and that'governments shall give legal, economic and social help in minimizing ;.his fears and promoting his happ nccs - The UN has faced this" fiinda- rnental ib c ne bj appointing a commission to draft an international bill of lights! The commission must proceed Irom^tTie simple- declaration of the UN Charter that one purpose of the United Nations is to encourage "respect for human rights and for fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to iaee, sex, language or religion." This declaration must be defined and made bpccific The difficulties con- nccte4 with the task are nil too rip-' parent Thej begin with the various arvHCi-s to the question: What ai'o human'.' rights and fundamental freedoms? EB.CII nation has its answer, com- rl catui by many considerations. Tra-* diticn, ci'ltine and religion affect it. So do climate, density of population, and the abundance and development pf^natural resources. f What aie the human rights of a Chilean f,um woiker, an Arab nomad, a, Chinese peasant woman, an African jungle huntei ' What are, the fundamental fieedoms of an American indus- trialist, a Russian mechanic, a. Javanese plantation hand, a-Spanish fisherman'.' And how far will the UN go- in "encouraging respect" for these rights? \\'hat, for. example 1 , will it do about liir. religious distinction of caste in India? What about the "fundamental five- doms" of Jews and Aral) fo occupy t.iic homeland of Palestine? What a'uoui, punishment for political opposition to a dictatorship? What of the disfranchised in a-free democracy? These are some of the issues on which peace depends. Worldwide freedom of responsible, constructive human action .seems impossibly ulopian. So do worldwide justice and fair opportunity and decent living conditions. So, too, does worldwide peace, which is impossible without these other conditions. Their achievement, then, will liavo to be attempted, hopeless though thu task may seem. Perhaps the attempt will suggest a method already apparent. In a recent speech Warren Austin spoke of two articles of the UK Charter as being "definitive and unequivocal—they are the law." Hut, with all respect for the distinguished American delegate's learning, are they? Is not the Charter an agreement, which on occasion can bi> broken by certain governments through use of the veto? It scarcely can be called law when there is no central authority capable of enforcing it. If, with time and experience, such an authority shoii!;! evolve from the UN, then perhaps the Utopian goals of worldwide liberty, equality and security may become visible. Medicine vs. Manners Oiir admiration for the medical profession, never lukewarm, has taken on a new ardor since two of its members recently went down into the lists to do battle with our dictators eluc gancc and etiquette. One doctor, head of a Massachusetts deafness clinic, says that the socially frowncd-upon practice of gum chewing is saving thousand of people from losing their hearing as the result of the common cold. And a dentist of the U. S. Public . Health Service says that most tooth damage' occurs during oV shortly after meals, and suggests that tooth cleaning should be limed to minimize that dam- mago. He 1 adds, somewhat timidly, "The - present timing of our toothbrushing habits is not in conformity with these observations, nor does it seem practical to assume that our authorities on etiquette will sanction conformity." Fear not, gentlemen, for we are with you. For the sake of health you will soon find us chompin' guin in the best society. And we shall take a look around for grandpa's gold toothpick which, in a happier day, was ir.diu- pensable to a well-turned-out man. irene Lonnen Ernhart i..

(NEA)-Despite much official fear of price- tieptcssmg food surpluses (luring the next two years, a "Go Slow!" warning against any new legislation providing further government controls on farm production is being run up by -Kansas Congressman Clifford R. Hope. Republican chair-, man of the House Agriculture Committee. Most of the farm surplus dan- ?r alarms have come from Secretary of Agriculture Clinton Anderson. He first raised tlio issue last November. Since Congress opcne;!. ic has appeared -before both Senate ami House Agriculture Coni- mittees. urging congressional ae- on. He wants more authority to put, acreage, marketing and ot!jr>v imitations on crop prodiislion T'ie :hcory is that these clubs could cut down supply to meet dri'nnticf. so keep farm prices from fall- intr. Tills program meets opposition from several sources. City consumers would like to sec ill! food costs come down. There are some predictions that surpluses will not. cl?-, \elop. U.
