The World Citizen At Lake Success (lie members ot the United Nations Human Rights Commission have begun w.ork on u unique project. It is the creation of a new political being upon the t'ficc of the earth—the world citizen. Even if the new world citixen is ;i firmed stay-at-home, he will be a world, citixen all the stim'e. lie won't be a cosmopolite, although the Greek words kosmos and politcs do mean world citizen. For \ve think of a cosmopolite as a man of the world, at home in any country. Politically, this new being will resemble everyone engaged in making him. He will have traces of socialism, communism and capitalistic democracy. His character will be influenced by various religions and philosophies.. [Jut he will finally emerge with n new look; —the look of n person who has certain definite rights which must be recognized and respected, wherever on Hie lace of earth- he happens to live. The world citizen will mature slowly We who are living today may see him only in his infancy, for the people . appointed to create him don't even know how to commence. Efieh knows how he wants his own particular world citizen to look, but right now there is no agreement. The commission members are like the fairies in the nursery ' stories who stand around the cradle of a now-born prince, endowing him with this quality and that. Take Mr. Tepliakov of the Soviet Union, for instance. He's not sure what rights he wants the new world citixen . to have. But he's pretty definite about some of the things he doesn't want him to have. , . Mr. Tepliakov would leave out the following: The rights of life; personal liberty and protection from slavery and , Compulsory labor; the right to petition ......national governments and the United Nations; the rights of property, free, dom of movement and resistance to oppression; the right to protection from unlawful expropriation and retroactive penal laws. Dr. Malik of Lebanon, on the other hand, wants the woi'Jd citizen to be a free, independent individual, first and last. He would put the "human person" above class, nation and race. He calls the world citizen's mind and conscience (he most sacred and inviolable thing about him. He thinks that forcing thu world citizen's consent by any no('ial pressure in wrong. In short, he believes the state exists for tile Individual—an idea which doesn't please .Mr. Tepliakov nt all. This disagreement among the creators means that their work will be long and difficult. Hut that is to be expected, and it is not discouraging. At least the creators are assembled and arc laying onl an assortment ol ingredients which they want to see used. Eventually the creators should be able to agree on enough selections from the assortment to build a being who embodies the rights of all men. The only immediate danger in that one of the creators might got mad, pick up . his ingredients, and go home. Who will protect the rights of UIK new world citizen—who is nil the inhabitants of the earth—in that distant day when he is an actuality? How will the government which denies him these rights In; punished? Those are difficult questions. They will have to be dealt with sometime, but/not now. The immediate problem is to create, the world citizen, for a permanently peaceful world is not possible without him. Wrong Party Line Yuri Zlwkov, a recent visitor to our country, has returned to Moscow and written a description of New York for I'ravda's readers. Commenting on th'e housing, shortage (as who isn't?) He says: "Why aren't the new houses finished? Very simple. The control of apartment pi-ices hasn't been removed?" How'n that again, Comrade Zhukov? Hemove price controls. Take off government shackles. Restore private enterprise. More profits for the landlords. Is that what you'ru .saying? We fear that Comrade Zluikov must have bumped into a Republican in ,\ New York bar. SO THEY SAY If there Is one thing on which reason and experience speak with one voice.

Cassie white-lipped, sick with anguish and self-reproach, sat in the tiny hospital room by the oxygen tent with Parker. He held her hands as they watched while Ellen died. There sound in Ihe room but the steady hum of the oxygen flosving into the tent, and the soft tread of nurses going in and out. .Cassie couldn't believe it had happened. Those things happened to other people—you read about them in the paper—and felt terribly sorry—but when it was your own child gone forever, you just couldn't believe it. ..Things were different without the baby. The hundred small tasks that'had surrounded Ellen were gone now and in their place only a dull feeling of disasicr and Joss. .Parker spent long hours playing his piano. "' Mama was silent with inconsol- •able grief. There was about the house.a sense of apathy and sorrow. . August came, dreadful with heat. The locusts dinned in the trees and the sun beat down heav- Why don't you come back to work lor a while?" he said suddenly. A truck roared by drowning out Cnssie's faint words of refusal. "You've no idea how it would 1 help case the grief, and—we're so darned short of capable help. You could have your old job back, Cassie, and a raise besides." Cnssic started to reiterate her refusal, and (hen suddenly found herself saying yes. , . « * • ' ''.'•'*:'• Q.OING home later on the bus, she tried to think of iiow she would tell Porker. Coming up the lane, after she'd ;ol off the bus, she could hear the aint tinkling sound of the piano. Cutting across the lawn past 'apn's flower borders, she went iround to the side "door lhat opened into the living room. Half- vay around by the long windows he hesitated, and stood still for an instant watching Parker ploy. l*hc music rippled and swayed A bar of sultry August sunlight ailing across his thin face lit up he look of strange excitement he • ily, seeming to press the moisture out of every living thing.

He Hopped her. :, "I was terribly sorry about the boby, Cassie." ,: Casiie made some sort of a reply, She wished people wouldn't j ilways wore at Ihe piano. What did Parker really think about? What did he feel? What did he want from life? Since the machine works had fizzled he'd ind two good jobs, and neither of them had suited him. He used .... lel1 ncr llow he hated the bank What did he want to do? Did he think they could live on nothing? All he c.ired about was playing Ihe piano. He caught sight nf her and the music slopped abruptly. "Well—what are you" sfandiriR out there in Ihe hot sun for?' said impatiently. "I—was just listening. It was very-beautiful.

Cassie walked around to thcf :loor and went in nnd putting her bundles down she came to tiio; piano and stood -rubbing her finger lightly over Ihe polished wood, making marks in the dust. Mama' had forgotten lo dust again. ' 'I may as well tell/you," shn began abruptly with an' apologetic laugh, "I've done something you probably won't approve of." His face tightened, v "What now?" - •*- "Well—it's just that with—with the baby gone," her voice trembled n liltle, "I thought—" Parker waited, his face impassive, the smoke curling from his cigarct. "I saw Mr. Drummond, quite by acxrident, on the street, nnd he lalked me into taking my old jofc back." ..,,. .,, •.SATURDAY;-FEBRUARY' 15,. 1947 Cracked! • •••*•••• IN HOLLYWOOD IIV KKSKINU JOHNSON NTA Staff Correspondent ; HOLLYWOOD — (NEA) — Just when George SniKlers has mad* his pence with, the ladies by declaring he will tell them what they like to hear, another war .stalls.

Naturally, we rushed lo the ladies' defense, while 842 press agents rushed us statements from their feminine clients, blasting Oarfield clear to the southern tip of Tasmania.
