Transcript (Continued,) U N E S C O —GOO D OR Who Decides What UNESCO Does? The member states. Delegates from these states meet in general conference at least once every two years. They determine UNESCO's policies, chart the main line of its work, review and. if necessary, change the proposed budget for the .coming period, and elect a 22-member Executive Board to make interim decisions. Each state has one vote and a majority carries. Who Does It? UNESCO's affairs are managed by a Director-General. His headquarters are in Paris. Luther Evans, former Librarian of the United States Library of Congress, is the present Director- General. He is UNESCO's third Director-General and the first American to hold the post. Of his Secretariat — about 850 employees — some 10 per cent are Americans. Do Delegates at the General Conferences and on the Executive Board Act as Representatives of Their Governments? Yes. UNESCO is an intergovernmental organization. United States delegates receive their instructions from the Department of State. These instructions are based partly upon the advice provided by the U. S. National Commission for UNESCO. In What Other Way Does the American Government Control American Participation in UNESCO Activities? Each vear appropriations to meet the United States' share of UNESCO budgets are prepared by the State Department and reviewed by the Executive Office of the President, Bureau of the Budget, before being presented to the Congress. That body, in turn, scrutinizes these requests in the same manner that it studies any other proposed expenditure. What Does UNESCO Cost? UNESCO's regular budget is about ten million dollars a year. It also receives varying sums from the United Nations Technical Assistance Program for special work in underdeveloped areas. These are voluntary contributions. The United States pays 30 per cent of the regular budget. This amoiuit — three million dollars — represents a per capita cost to Americans of slightly less than two cents a year.

It is expected to be completed within the first six months of What Does UNESCO Do? Through its program UNESCO strives to surmount certain significant handicaps to international peace. These are: the lack of education and the opportunity for education, the lack of understanding and cooperation among peoples of different nations, religions, and cultures, the obstacles to the free flow of information, ideas, and of people between nations, and the lack of scientific knowledge and how to use such knowledge for the improvement of living conditions. UNESCO, therefore, is helping underdeveloped countries to create primary and secondary school systems, while at the same time helping them to teach their adult illiterates the fundamental knowledge and skills which they need in their daily lives to help improve their standard of living and to become responsible citizens. It gives and has given technical advice to nations to help build press and radio systems adapted to the practical needs of their people. It encourages all nations to use their press, radio, and television facilities to foster better international understanding. It has published catalogs of the best available color reproductions of world's masterpieces. It has made available transWl from Arabic, Persian, Sanskrit, ]"H ncse. Italian, Spanish, and PortUfSJ to make the literary genius of the"1 ferent peoples available in many guages.
