PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, ,U NWAIlY «. ™ s *. Old-School Diplomat, Hammerskjold Is Polite, Bat Also Firm UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (AP) - Red China's Chou En-lai should find Dag Hammarskjold a modest, old-school diplomat who uses the polite language of diplomacy, but who can speak with firmness when the occasion demands it. As the U.N. secretary general announced before he left New York, . he was not going to Peiplng to beg for anything. But he was fully aware that Important International interests were involved a* well as the personal Interests of the 11 American fliera he-sought to have freed. That is why he decided to go to Peiping personally instead of resorting to a less dramatic course, such as a writtea appeal. As Hammarskjold sees It. the main function of the secretary general is to be a "denationalized spokesman" for the U.N. as a •whole, one who can speak to sov- ernznents with frankness, but at the same time remain neutral. Since becoming secretary general almost two years ngo, the former Swedish diplomat has carefully avoided lining himself up with either the Communistc or the West. His predecessor Trygve Lie resigned after he offended the Communist* by branding their attack on South Korea as aggression. Lie himself acknowledged that his usefulness had thereby been impaired. Hammarskjold began his admin- istration by concentrating primarily on Secretariat problems. Recently, however, he has devoted more and more time to quiet behind-the-scene talks with top diplomats in an effort to ease world tension. His trip to Red China is his first spectacular venture. Hammarskjold, 49, and son of a former prime minister of Sweden, is well grounded in diplomacy. He served on many missions abroad before coming to the U.N. as secretary general. His last post in Sweden was minister of state. One of his Swedish colleagues once called him "a master of compromise." More than once since coming to the U.N., he has demonstrated the aptness of this description, but in Peiping he finds himself in a new role. As. secretary general of the U.N. he has no authority to compromise or bargain. His job in Peiping is to sell the Chinese Communists on the idea that it will be to their interests and to the Interests of the world to release the American fliers and other U.N. personnel.
