WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 2, 1953 BLYTHEVIUE (ARK.) COURIKR NEWS PACK NINE Dulles Floats Trial Balloon On Possible U N Alterations Br JAMES MAR LOW WASHINGTON (AP) — A secretary of state can get help, ranging from a little to a lot, from his department specialists When he wants to prepare a speech. It may pass through a number of hands for discussion, changes or suggestions. For example, when former Secretary Dean Acheson made an important speech on Russia several years ago, work began on it about five months before he delivered it. Secretary Dulles himself wrotR the speech he gave In Boston last week befor<i the American Bar As- •Bociation, suggesting, among other things, that changes should be made In the United Nations Char. ter. From what c?n be learned he didn't consult his battery of State Departments experts on the u. jj. The speech was so vague about the changes that it looks more like a trial balloon than any attempt to nail down 'ideas. While the charter could be changed any time—if enough U.N. members voted for it—the question of changing it will come up automatically without anyone's suggesting it in 1955. The charter itself provides for that. By throwing out a trial balloon now, Dulles could get some discussion going on possible Changes- It the discussion could be continued until 1955, by then the State Department would have some knowledge of how the country felt about it. Sore Spot But because Dulles was so indefinite in his speech to the laW- yers he will probably have to return to this subject later—if he wants discussion to continue—with suggestions more exact than he supplied this time. One of the sorest spots in the history of the U. N.—from the American viewpoint—is the way Russia has repeatedly used it veto power in the Security Council to block United Nations action. •JiAt one point of his talk Dulles was critical of this overuse of the veto. But he can hardly have meant this country would consider eliminating it since the veto works both ways. This country could use the veto to block U. N. action inspired by Russia any time it thought necessary. In fact, without the veto as protection it is pretty certain the Senate would never have permitted his country to join the U. N. . But—it's the veto itself which may in tho end reduce all talk about charter changes to wishful I thinking. I When the u. N. Charter was being hammered together in 1945 at San Francisco, one question which arose naturally was about the charter itself, anticipating the very question now being raised by Dulles: Suppose the time should come when members of the U. N. felt the rules laid down in the charter at San Francisco weren't working well and needed changing. How could it be done? Vote Needed It was agreed and written into the charter that if enough mem- STARR GAZING (Continued from, page 8) these things. Give It sooner.

Movie Colony To Establish Hail of Fame HOLLYWOOD (IP) — The movie industry is taking the Tirst steps to honor its great in a hall of fame to be erected at a cost of more than two miUion dollars. President Jean Hersholt of the Motion Picture Relief Fund announced yesterday that the project envisions a museum offering "the only complete collection of Indus to properties and relics of our trade," as well as niches of honor for outstanding actors and industry leaders. Hersholt said that the MPRF's Executive Committee and Board of Trustees have completed a finan- bers wanted to consider changes- two thirds of the 60 members of Vhe General Assembly and seven of the 11 Security Council members a charter - changing conference could be called. But If no such conference was held by 1955, then the question of holding such a conference would automatically be placed before the U. N. in 1955. The conference still couldn't be held, even then, unless ft majority of the General Assembly and seven Security Council members Approved. That much vote is needed just to call a conference to consider changes. But there could be no changes unless two thirds of all the U. N. members and all the permanent members of the Security Council approved. The fivft permanent members of the council are the United States, Russia, Britain, France and China. In other words, if the United States or Russia said "no" to any proposed changes, there could be no changes. 'But Officer, I Missed the Car' RICHMOND.
