PAGE TEN B1.YTHEV1LLB (ARK.) COURIER HEW! 1 UN's Assembly Could Convene Quickly, Lie Says N«w Aggression Would Bring Fast Call for Delegates LAKE SUCCESS, Aug. 7. (^)— Trygve Lie ssld today the U.Nf. General Assembly could meet on 24 hours notice in case of nn cmer- t*ncy such as a new aggression. The Secretary General told a weekly news conference he wou!d not hesitate to call the 59-nation »&sembly at such time. He said the present rules provide for a 14-day period o/ notice to the assembly members, taut Chat he believed he had the authority to Mt aside the rules in an emergency. Some delegates have suggested the Assembly meet in special session if the Soviet Union ties up the Security Council fay using Its veto powers, " Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Jakob Malik, president of the Council this month, threatened last week to use the veto if the Council refused lo invite the Communist North Koreans to take part in debate on the Korean war. He cannot use the veto, however, to halt U. N. military decisions already taken. Earlier, Ue said a bold and enlightened act of statesmanship fs needed to resume negotiations on world problems and to halt further deterioration toward a third world war, Submits Report He gav« these views in his 143- page annual report to the Assembly which meets in regular session at Flushing Meadows, New York City, Sept. 19. In the report, written July 12, Lie said there was no way of foreseeing the outcome of the war in Korea. He said, the breach of peace In Korea Interrupted his efforts to,get high-level officials of the big powers to resume negotiations. Need for negotiations, however, will be greater than ever "when United Nations action has succeeded in restoring peace to Korea," Lie wrote. : "I do not believe that member •tales adhering to the charter can ever accept the doctrine of irreconcilable and Irrevocable division of the world into warring camps, not so long as the least possibility exists of preventing a third world war by peaceful settlements based on the principles of the charter. "But I also believe it will take nothing less than a bold and enlightened act ot statesmanship to bring about a resumption of negotiations and to halt further deterioration towards another world war." The report termed a successful conclusion to the U. N. military action in Korea "First priority" for member nations but added: "This does not mean, however, KIM.KD IN CRASH—Brig. Gen. Robert K.
