Transcript :« and our machine guns if we <ln not have these foreign raw materials? How do they think we could re-sisl the Soviet Union if il could outproduce us—if il possessed the factories nf West- cm Europe and the skilled manpower, and thus outweighed us on the crucial industrial scale? No. the opponents of our present foreign poliev have not thought out the answer to thai and related questions. Bul vou. my friends, in the audience this afternoon—you know these prob- leins these realities and that is why vmi are striving sn earnesth in support of United States good partnership in the United Nations. That is why you wisely support our participation m regional organizations leer security -whether they are in W est- ern Europe, the Western Hemisphere, or Southeast Vsia bul always within the framework of Article 51 of the 1 N Charier. I w i-li thai time were available for me lo comment on all of the many phases of the problems of the United Nations, which truly merit review al this time. THREE PRINCIPAL PHASES Let me, however, confine my remarks to three principal poinl.-. Lei us. first, gee some <il the principal issues looming before us in terms of possible impi'iivi'incnl ol the I nited Nations Charter. Lei us. second, see why. even withoul these changes, ii is so essential ilieil we' defend the- United Nations againsl those who would recklessly attack it. And. third. Iel us see whal horizons face the United Nations, in particular, in connection with the famous atoms- for-peace proposal of Presidenl Dwight 11. Eisenhower. IMPORTANCE OF CHARTER REVIEW Neew. first, my friends, I wanl to refer to the very importanl challenge fen ing ii- of weighing proposed changes in the UN Charier. You are all familiar wilh lhe facl lhat. as chairman of a Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee nn lhe I N Charter Revision, I have been holding hearings across our nation on lhe suh- ji'i I eef possible charier changes. We have heard splendid testimony frnm citizens like' yourselves in cities— large and small—across America. We have heard proposals for such changes as: 1. 2. effective armament con- More Irol; Altering of tlie present veto power which heis so often paralyzed ihe Security Council; 3. Weighted voting in the Genera] \s-e-inhU : iheet is. changing the present "one nation, inn- vote" formula: 4. \leikiii5: more universal the membership in the IN (which is today limited to hui sixty nations because, principally, of the Soviet veto). Pa ire 22 —Wide World Pholo Wiley Says: 1. To contend that the I'N is a do-nothing organisation is a base untruth. 2. The charge lhat the t'N is a danger to American sovereignty is absolutely false. The IN Charter prohihils intervention in domestic affairs. 3. To lahel lhe I'N as "a financial rat- hole" is absurd. I'N costs Americans around sixteen cents per yeeir anil worth every rent. ll is slill loo early lo say what formal recommendations mv colleagues ami I will make next year |1955| tu the I nited States Semite. And it is slill loo early lo predict what proposals oiii 1 nited Stales Slate Department will ultimately recommend through lhe I nited Si,ele- mission in the I nited Nations, ll is already clear, however, lhal. as Secretary of Stale Dulles wisely pointed out. the United Sleilis will definitely favor lhe holding of a review conference lu evaluate changes in lhe charier. This review conference will give ns a golden opportunity- ten years after the founding of lhe I nited Nalions Charter in take stock of the changed situation. It will give us an opportunity to see luiw wc can overcome shortcomings which have arisen, and how we can pre- \ i -ii t lhe So\ iel I nion from throwing ei further monkey wrench into Ihe United Nalions. SPIRIT COUNTS MORE THAN LETTER Bul whatever proposals we of the 1 nited States may strive for. I urge you. my friends, In remember thai il is the spiril of lhe I nited Nalions which will counl far more than lhe letter nf ihe IN Charter. The' charter, even wilh its present limitations, could succeed if the right spiril i- present, if there is ei true will, intent, ami purpose among the nations in achieve peace. Let us not become so preoccupied with the mechanism uf peace that we forget lhal llu- importanl feature is the spirit among the nalions. Our own spirit is slill strong for peace. Our enthusiasm has nol flagged. Every public opinion poll demonstrates thai fact. The latest Gallup poll, feu example, shows lhat more than 76 per cenl of lhe American people approve of the I nited Rations. This, then, is the basis on which we approach the proposed review conference. Ami I say. Iel ii come. We welcome it. We will nol allow ourselves I" lie paralyzed by Fear nf ;i possible Soviel veto of charter changes. DEFEND UN AGAINST ATTACKERS Bul second, my friends. I waul lo turn lo a slill more immediate leisk: llu- task eel defending lhe United Nations againsl those who would defame il: those who would attempt In smear il nr its affiliated agencies, whether il he lhe United Nations Educational, Scientific ami Cultural Organization, or the International Labor Organization nr any other group represented in the I N system. I sai lu yuii. my friends, thai now '" lln- time in rededicate ourselves In the defense of the UN. Why:' Because in defending it. w defend lhe I nited Slates; we defend the unified foreign poliev which has been carried on hy lhe leaders of llu- American people, irrespective of politic* party. It is the foreign policy dedicate* in America's fulfillmenl uf ils nele- in the shrunken world nf ihe atomic-hydrogen age. I need nul tell you lhal from man) quarters, mud is being thrown al ''" I nited Neiiiems. thai attempts arc being made lo ridicule il and In destroy it. II is nul feu me In question the goo* faith in which these criticisms »** hurled, bul I can slate that each nf the attacks musl in- answered calmly an* reasonably—with the- hard fads. We- cannol he silent in lhe face " these eilteicks. ll has been wisely state* thill "all lhal evil needs lo triumph '" tha! good men he silent." Let us nol he silent now. therefore '." answering tin- principal unfair cri"' cisms w hich have been hurled eil the I Whal are some nf those criticisms?
