This could well lead to the organization of Strong and free trade unions which would advance labor's economic well-being and thus expand the economies ol their countries. As President George Meany staled in his New Year's message in summarizing the program of 1955 for American labor: "Our first concern must be for the preservation of peace. That goal can DEPARTMENT OF STATE PHOTO be accomplished by strengthening our national defense, by reinforcing our alliance with the free nations of the world, bv participating with them in effective programs for broadening international trade and economic growth, and by joint resistance against any further appeasement of the Soviet conspiracy." There can be no doubt that the programs of UNESCO will serve to assist the free world in accomplishing its goal of preserving the peace. UNESCO vs. Missionary Work By THOMAS B. CURTIS FOK six years I have been saving in one public speech alter another that UNESCO and Point 4, desirable and helpful as thev were, were nothing new to Americans and other enlightened societies of the world. Thev were merely government programs attempting to do what our great missions had been doing lor many decades, indeed for centuries. I resented the propagandizing that went along with these programs which overshadowed the great missionary work in the very same fields, medical mis- sinus, educational missions, sanitary missions, missions to teach economic skills, and so forth. I pointed out that here, as in the field of economic endeavor, political government was moving in to take over private enterprise — for, indeed, iii this regard our missions are private enterprise, much as our community chests arc private enterprise as contrasted to government endeavor. I pointed out that just as in the •Entered in the Congressional Record for lannarv 17. 1956, bj Rep. Thomas Ii. Cur- tis (R-Mo.). fields ol economic endeavor political government did not lend itself well by its very structure to performing these functions, SO in the field of missionary work, political government was not well suited to perform these functions. The reasons were quite clear to me. If political governments tried to do the job, thev perforce had to deal with and through the political government which existed in the society they were trying to help. In till too mam instances the political government was on the backs of the peoples in the society and many of their basic troubles lav with that government Yet by channeling economic, educational. medical, or anv of these aids through the political government, to a large extent this assisted in keeping thai particular political government on their backs and maintaining the status quo. The missionary programs, on the other hand, were essentially person to person rather than government to person or government to government relationships. Second, the missionary programs Page 23 ! \
