CARPENTER UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. Lfl— Secretary - General Trygve Lie has decided to step down from his $40,000-a-year United Nations post on Feb. 1, 1951, at the end of a three- year extension of his term, and retire to Norway. Some day he would like to be prime minister of that country. This wns disclosed today by persons who know the mind of Norway's former foreign minister. He has been top boss of the 4.000-man U. N. Secretariat since 1946. When he leaves, he will get a lifetime pension of $10,000 a year but he cannot hold public office mrtil he has been away from the tf. N. for five years. Lie now Is 5G, Lie's Intentions came to the fore as U. N, officials studied a draft of a staff reorganization scheme which would abolish the posts of eight assistant secretaries general e.-ich paid $22,000 annually an<i would create three deputy' secretaries general, each at a considerably higher snl.-u-y. Lie was said to have described this plan as hi.s "last will nnd testament." He is known to be extremely anxious lo have the Secretariat staff on a sound footing before he leaves. Some of his assistants are not optimistic about the fate of this plan. They foresee opposition from Ihosc countries which could not expect to have a deputy under the new arrangement. There also is a growing feeling niiiong the small countries that such bis powers ns the United states, Britain, France nnd Russia have too much of the gr.ivy In U. N. posts. The smaller countries seem determined to cut the big power representation in the high brackets as much as possible The plan likely will be discussed then put off to the 1953 assembly which must choose Lie's successor! The secretary-general originally was hired In 1946 for a five-year lenir. The five permanent members of the Security Council—the United States, Prance. Britain Russia and China, which hold the velo power—agreed unanimously on him as a compromise candidate afler tbe East and West had turned down each other's nominee. Lie began work to find some middle ground between the Soviet Union and the West. Often he wns attacked from both quarters.
