The preamble reads: "We the Peoples of lhe United Nations, determined to save succeeding Generations from the scourge of weir. "hich twice in our lifetime has brought '"Huh! sorrow to mankind, and lo reaf- !lrni failh in fundamental human rights, "i Ihe dignity and worth of lhe human l"'ison. in lhe equal rights of men and H"inin and of nations large and small, '"id In establish conditions under which luslice and respeel for lln- obligations 'rising from treaties and olher sources ''' international law can he maintained, •"nl in promote sneied progress and bet- ''''' standards nf life in larger freedom, "And for these ends to practice tolerance einel live together in peace wilh one "'olher as good neighbors, and lo unite ''"i strength lo maintain international '"'"ie and security, and lo ensure, by "e acceptance of principles and lhe in- ''iiniiun nf methods, that armed Force ''"ill nul he' used, seni' in lhe' common "Merest, emd lei employ international ""•chinery for the promotion of the ''nioinie and social advancement of all Nples, Have resolved In combine our efforts 0 accomplish these aims. Accordingly, °"r respective Governments, through ?presentatives assembled in lhe city uf ?*•> Francisco, who have exhibited their "" powers found In he in good eiml due form, have' agreed lo the present Charter uf the 1 nited Nations and do hereby establish an international organization to be known as the United Nations." Perhaps you've never heard, nr read, ibis preamble lo the United Nations Charter. Hut doesn't it sound somewhat Familiar to you? ll should, ll i- pat- terned after, and in greal measure parallels, the preamble in the Constitution of lhe United Slales of America. The entire I nited Nations Charter, in facl. is ei twentieth century expression of lhe very principles embodied in our own Constitution. The Charier merely spells out. vvilh more clarity eunl in more specific language, the rights, privileges, and duties which people in ei free society arc entitled lo. The righls of man eire- proclaimed in the charters of government of many nalions. Ilul il remained for lhe United Neiiions lo enlist tlie cooperaiion of representatives from all nations in lhe form- ulalion of a statement of principles which proposes ei common standard of achievement For all peoples. "A MORE PERFECT UNION" Americans have not achieved perfection in government, hui we have been working toward "a more perfect union" since government began under our Con- stitution. We have come a long way toward achieving this goal, hui there are many subsidiary and related goals still lo be achieved. A greal many of these are spelled oul in lhe 1 idled Nations Charter and in the various other declarations and covenants which have been written under the auspices of the I nited Nalions. Our Constitution, while proclaiming lhe fundamental rights to which all citizens are entitled, overlooks one im- portant fact: no real right can exist where the means to ensure tbe right are not present. Only government can guarantee those means. This is where the United Nations Charter has taken a -lip ahead. The men who founded the United Nations and sel up its charter realized that the right lo "life, liberty, and lhe pursuit of happiness" is ei mcein- ingless phrase unless ibis right is en- sured hy minimum economic, social, and cultural standards which people musl have if their dignity as persons is to be preserved and if their personalities are to develop freely. Like eill slips forward, the United Nations Charter has mel vvilh hysterical opposition from isolationists and other groups who assume lhal anything new is hound to be bad—and particularly from those who imagine a Communis! plot behind every sentence in the Charter. As a matter of fact, lhe Charier was very difficult to write. For two months and a day. lhe delegates and their assistants worked out details and plans to which ;dl nations could agree. There were special oommillccs for each section of the Charter. Recommendations of each committee bad lo be considered al meetings of all lhe delegates. The meaning of every wend and phrase had to be carefully examined. Getting a word nr phrase In mean exactly lhe same thing to every delegate weis not easy, because the delegates spoke many differenl language's. lie-pile all obstacles, however, lhe Charier came into existence, and by mid- 1951 there were- sixty I N' members, and a number of other countries waiting to get in. Now. if there is anything wrong or dangerous about lhe United Nations, . V wtrt -*-v. ',* ■' /TitfrY »m H PT,,T,'l W r j *m f[ fi Te^*^- * iV (/ t n •. 1 ^. 1 a m KL~" .
