Transcript BKOHH —United Press Photo U.S. Secretary of State Stettinius presented the first draft of the "world security charter" in San Francisco in June, 1945. Seated are Alger Hiss (left) and Andrei Gromyko. lished in millions of copies, and given wide free distribution over the earth for the purpose "f selling the standard— lhe goeil Inward which all nations should Strive. All nations which endorse this United Nations Declaration of Human Rights say hy their endorsement that if their institutions and system of government do not conform to the ideals proclaimed in this declaration, they will strive to alter their institutions and system to make them conform. Now, this declaration is not legally binding on any nation. Since it was formallv proclaimed in 191!!. UNESCO, private organizations, and the United States government have made intensive propaganda efforts to popularize it- to condition lhe minds of lhe American people to accept ultimately a treaty which will incorporate these ideals and which will then be legally binding on us. In oilier words, thc United States government has endorsed the United Nations Declaration of Unman Rights and, in endorsing it. has made a promise to the world that it will try lo bring its institutions up to the ideal here proclaimed. Ever since thi- declaration was written and proclaimed in 1948, the people who wrote it have been preparing the treaty to implement it. This treaty is called the Covenant on Human Rights. COVENANT TO SUPPLANT CONSTITUTION? The Covenant on Human Rights was completed several years ago, approved by the Truman administration, and sent to the United States Senate for ratification. The Senate turned the thing down because it was afraid of it; but the Covenant is still wandering around in Page 16 the dusty catacombs of international bureaucracy, einel will again come before the Senate of the United States for ratification. If the Senate ever ratifies this Covenant as a treaty, then this document will become the Constitution of the United States instead of the Constitution we now have because treaties can become the supreme law of our hind. overriding our Constitution. Let's lake a look at it. Every year our Presidenl proclaims a special UN Declaration of Human Rights Day, calling upon the American people to pay homage to this document. It is quite conceivable that some day ibis document, hy the treaty process, may supplant lor eit least become a part of) our own Constitution. UN-USSR DOCUMENTS MESH Let's at least glance at il. Article 23 of lhe I nited Nations Declaration of Human liights: "Everyone has the right to work . . . and to equal pay for equal work." Article 118 of the Constitution of llie Soviet Union: '"Citizens of the- USSR have the right lo work . . . ami payment for their work in accordance with ils quantity and quality." Another clause of Article 23 of llie I nited Nalions Declaration of Human Rights: "Everyone has the right lo form and to join trade unions." Article- 126. Constitution of the Soviet Union: "Citizens of the USSR are insured the right to unite... in trade unions." Article 21 of lhe United Nations Declaration of Human Rights: "Everyone has the right to resl and leisure." Article 119 of the Constitution of the Soviet Union: "Citizens of the I SSI! have the right to rest and leisure." These are just samples. Compare' ihis Inited Nations Declaration of Human Rights with Chapter X of lhe Constitution of lhe Soviet Union. They em- identical in philosophy, and lhe I nited Nations Declaration of Human Rights is, in many instances, a direct lift from the Soviet Constitution. If the United Nations bureaucrats ever get this United Nations Declaration of Human Rights incorporated into a treaty which our governmenl accepts, the United Sleilrs eil lhal point will no longer have the old Constitution thai il started out with in 1789. ll will have basically the Constitution of tin- I nion of Soviet Socialisl Republics. That s em easier and slirker way of destroying America than Irving lo do il hy force of arms or even interna] subversion. ^i on cannol dismiss Ihis hy saying, "Well, lhal -eiiinel- bad, but ii would never happen lo us. because our government wouldn't permit it." Our government, at our expense, printed anil distributed ihis particular edition of lhe IN Declaration of Human Rights. This pamphlet was published by the Federal Office of Education as a hand- hook for teachers. One instruction to teachers is here on page 21: 'Make a list of the minimum economic, social, and cultural rights lo which the students in your school have a right if llieir dignity as a person is to be preserved eunl il their personalities are to develop freely." Whether the government officials who distributed this pamphlet at your expense realize it or not, they arc here' instructing lhe public school teachers of America in tlie techniques of Communist pro* paganda—to be used on your children in your schools. Ratification of the IN Charter as a treaty was one of the mosl hurried- thoughtless, einel dangerous acts in tl"' history of lhe Unheal States Senate. Tbe Senators may think they deserve a raises—but not for that kind of per formance. A few more such acts as that wi" convert the American Republic into -' Soviet republic. That was one side. The oilier side will come next. Let*! discuss llie I'N Charter from the point of view of those who like the UN. THE United Nations Charter represent-' the most worthwhile and promising effort ever made by man to secure ll,e blessings of peace and prosperily f°r all the peoples of all the nalions of l'lC world.
