Transcript (Continued) UNESCO —GOOD O BAD have diverted attention from the admirable work it is doing in others. . . . "UNESCO can do valuable work in promoting understanding and personal exchange among relatively well- educated peoples, but in that field it is not alone; at most, it can only fill crevices between the activities of universities, learned societies, publishers, and national organizations. . . . But it is still far from clear that that is what UNESCO has in mind." To the silly esthetic boondoggling described above by the Economist, we can add one more late morsel: the prizes offered and awarded at the recent Venice Biennale by UNESCO which became simply two or three others added to an already endless list of small cash and honors offered by tourist bureaus and insurance companies. They may sound like a tiny thing, which it probably comes to in money and importance, yet these prizes are somehow typical of the most unpleasant and most dangerous fault of UNESCO, certainly in the arts — namely, its obvious wish and will to set itself up competitively, and on the same level, with existing organizations, instead of as a liaison in order to make the best possible use of them, as the founders of UNESCO intended. But that original premise has now disappeared under the hand of the firmly entrenched intellectual Tammany -Hall which today inhabits as well as rules UNESCO. Hence, of course, UNESCO finds itself, among other odd occupations, literally in the publishing business — and in the art field, in it with expensive, huge volumes that have recently been reviewed by competent authorities as inferior to equally recent, commercially published books on the same subjects. But it is projects like these which create soft jobs and free travel for UNESCO functionaries. So also do, of course, international conferences like the one with the fancy name, at Venice, a few months ago. This turned out to be a no more successful performance of the long- range idea of creating a UNESC run international artists' associati for which an equally expensive of a general rehearsal, a sort of pi ning conference, had been held UNESCO at Venice two years befo It was severely criticized for powa yet eventually ridiculous efforts by Italo-French bloc to ram through own procedure, ideas, and cod Now the same thing has happen again, on a larger scale and a 1 easily combatable one, a few mon ago — with no press observers invl "' (why?). As soon as official reports cleared for release, we shall publ an account based on experience] the considerably disillusioned Uni States delegation of artists. What can be done about UNESC How do we control (in order to ■ having to halt entirely) this sored apprentice we have called into be' Better decide and act before it ' rushes one more major, gratia fueling, at home and abroad, fcj anti-international reactionaries. Facts Forum Panel Discusses UNESCO Guest panelist for a recent- thought-provoking television program dealing with the subject of UNESCO was Professor Willmoore Kendall (center!, former Rhodes scholar, now professor of political science, Yale University.

Kendall: It is one further example of the rash of new international organizations that were set up in 1945 and after in the general atmosphere of optimism about world peace, and with the general purpose of speeding our progress Page 26 toward that better world which our political leaders had promised us as a reward for going into World War II.
