' PAGE TWO BLYTHEVIU.J5 (AUK.) COURIER NEWS THE NATION TODAY- t Western Powers Coll Russian Bluff in UN Assembly and Win With Proposal by U.S.-Britain By James Marlnw WASHINGTON, Dec. 2. (£')—One of the strange chapters In the history of the United Nations now has come to an end. On Sept. 23 President Truman announced there was evidence or an atomic blast in Russia. And on that day Russia's foreign minister, Andrei Y. Vishlnsky, got up and made a peace' proposal !n the U. N., which had been set up four years ago to keep peace. fr . — .... .. — It was R two-edged proposal: 1. He suggested a peace pact 'among the big five nations: United States, Russia, Britain, France, chl- 'na, 2. He suggested the U.N. condemn • preparations for a new war which he said were being made hi the United States and Britain. The U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Warren R. Austin, called (he Vish- insky proposl propaganda. Later he said: If Vtshlnsky wanted to cooperate with the rest of ihe world, the RILS- . sian peace proposal was unnecessary; but if Russia didn't intend to cooperate, such a peace pact. would bo a mockery. Still, the VLshinsky proposal left • the U,S. in a kind of box. How coulri " the Western powers counter the Russian move with some move of their own? Saleliles Stand Pal, Rut Lose On Nov. M Austin got up and proposed an American-British resolution. This resolution was hardly more than what already is contained in the U.N. charter or things the U.S. and Britain had said hefore: It called on U.N. members to take •part In the work of the U.N.; to restrain the use of the veto in the security council where Russia has vetoed majority decisions 41 times; to settle disputes by peaceful means; and so on. So now the U.N. was going to have to vote on the Russian proposal and on the U.S.-British proposal. This would give both sides a chance to show how many supporters they had In the U,N.---at least. on this issue. From the start it seemed certain that the U.S. and Britain would win. Russia's proposal was swamped and the Western projwsal was approved yesterday by a vote of &3 to 5. - Lined up with Russia In voting against the Western proposal were her four satellites: Czechoslovakia, Poland, Soviet Ukraine, White Russia. And what will be done about the Western proposal that won? There doesn't seem much that can be done that wouldn't have been done without the proixvai since It i a restatement of U.N. aims and previous American-British proposals. Like Deadly Game of Chess But it was a point scored by the West over Russia, So far, this has dealt only with the bare outlines of the problem. There were plenty of arguments— between the time the prO[K-.< were offered and the final vote yesterday—and not always on a high Intellectual plane. J\>r example: The Soviet Ukraine's foreign minister, Dmitri Z. Manuilsky, told the U.N. that certain unidentified "war mongers" in the U.S. and Britain were "cockroaches, lice and beetles." Vishinsky denounced the U.S. and Britain and accused them of preparing a capitalist war against Russia. Austin called Vishinsky'.s proposal an olive branch surrounded by poisonous thorns. Chile said the Sovet Union war a super-capitalist, imperialist, totalitarian police state. Yugoslavia accused Russia of monstrous hypocrisy in talking peace before the U.N. while carrying on a campaign against Marshal Tito. Small nations begged the United States and Ku.sMa to end their cold war, rather than risk total war. And the Philippines called the U.N. maneuvering a "deadly gnme of chess." Truman Sends Picture To Youth Who Pondered Father's Death in War LYNN, Mass,, Dec. 2. (/P)— The White House ha,*: sont Laurence Gotrtstelr an autographed picture of President Truman. The Jl-ycar-oki boy, whose father was killed overseas In World War II, came Into the limelight after reporting he was beaten up by older boys nnrl palled a "dirty Jew. 1 And Ills mother wrote a letler to a newspaper seeking the answer to his question "Why did my daddy have to die?" David K. Miles, administrative assistant to the President, sent Ijaurance a picture autographed by Mr. Truman with a letter rending: 'I am enclosing a photograph lo you Inscribed by the President, who wants yon lo have it as a reminder that your father's ideals still live on In ft country he died for. "The real Americans arc the ones like your father who fought against injustice and prejudice. Tf you and other Americans will make as goori a fight against injustice and prejudice, you will help Uje President win that fight, too." Mr. Truman .sfRiifd his photograph—"Kindest Regards Lo Laurence Goldstein."

(If} — democratic chances In next year's Congressional elections look so good o some party members they are 'orrying al>out over-condlfence.
