Transcript (Continued) U N E S C O —GO O D O Do Russia and Its Satellites Accept These Premises? In the light of Soviet actions since World War II, the USSR's acceptance of UNESCO and its principles can be viewed with considerable skepticism. Until she signed the UNESCO Constitution in April, 1954. Russia had boycotted it and UNESCO had been a consistent target of the Communist- controlled press. As a member of the United Nations, Russia needed onlv to sign the UNESCO Constitution to become a member. What Is the U. S. Attitude Toward Russia's Membership? The United States will welcome a Soviet decision to take part in UNESCO's work with real sincerity of purpose, but the burden of proof rests upon it. If the USSR is not sincere, the world will be given another opportunity to contrast Soviet promises with Soviet performance. One thing is sure. Russia would not have joined if she had not felt that ( NI'.SCO was an important force in world affairs. Her presence makes it more important than ever that the United States continue to provide effective leadership in UNESCO. Is the Participation of the American People Important to This Intergovernmental Organization? Although UNESCO is necessarily an intergovernmental organization, its success is measured by the degree to which it activates people-to-people relationships. To do this, the UNESCO Constitution invited each member state to form a National Commission, broadly representative of the government and of the principal groups in each country interested in educational, scientific, and cultural matters. What Is the U. S. National Commission for UNESCO? It is a group of American citizens appointed by the Secretary of State to: (1) advise the Department of State on UNESCO matters; serve as the connecting link with organizations, institutions, and individuals interested in I NESCO and matters relating to UNESCO; and Page 14 (2 (3) promote an understanding of the general objectives of UNESCO on the part of the people of the United States. How Does It Advise The Government? It acts in a consultative capacity, helping to select candidates for appointment to United States delegations to the General Conference. Through a system of panels and subcommittees, it makes a thorough study of UNESCO's program and advises the U. S. government on the specific positions its delegations should take at the General Confer ence. How Does the U. S. National Commission Serve as a Link Between UNESCO and the Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Community of America? Each month hundreds of requests for information, many of them on highly technical subjects, from people doing practical and valuable work all over the world — scientists, educators, missionaries, etc. — come into the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. Many of the answers are here in the United States — but where? These inquiries are referred to the U. S. National Commission. Through its many contacts, the U. S. National Commission obtains the information requested or. if appropriate, puts the United States source of the information in direct contact with UNESCO. Each year the United States is in vited to participate in dozens of in'1 national advisory, consultative. * technical groups.
