" own heavy sacrifice's in blood and treasure, other I N members aside from Korea itself suffered 17.000 casualties. including 3,000 honored dead. And lhe aggression was stopped, although not in total victory for our side. And I point out. too. that in non- military phases, the UN is far from a do-nothing organizalion. The United Nations is giving indispensable technical assistance to the underdeveloped nations uf the world: It's giving milk to starving babies and to pregnant mothers; medical care, financial aid, and either necessar) assistance. So, to contend thai the 1 nited Nations is a do-nothing organization is a base untruth. U.S. SOVEREIGNTY NOT ENDANGERED 2. Second, it is charged that the United Nations is ei danger to American sovereignty. That is absolutely false. The I nited Nations Charier specifically prohibits intervention in the domestic affairs of any of the countries. No international instrument made inside or outside of the I nited Nalions is binding upon us unless we choose to ratify it. Vou and I know that pari uf this attack againsl the United Nations is represented in the universal movement for a constitutional amendmenl to limit treaty-making power under the I nited Slate's Constitution. Ihis is the so-called Bricker Amend- nieni which, in the final days of the second session of the present Congress, weis reintroduced in slightly amended form. Time does not permit me to analyze 'a detail what I regard as the serious dangers in this amendment. Suffice il 1,1 sen that the Presidenl of the United States rightly remains steadfastly op- Posed In this or any other amendment "hich would (a) jeopardize the historic prerogatives of the Chief Executive, or which would (10 endanger the tradi- ''onal checks and balances under the I nited States I ionstitution. I am glad to reporl that the tide has turned againsl the Bricker Amendment. For example, recently the Oregon State Bar Association had lhe opportunity to cast its vote on it, and the amendment wees overwhelmingly leiected by ei vote eef better than 5-to-l. This is bul a symbol of the fact that the American people arc waking up lo the dangers in this amendmenl. and that llicy arc not going to fall prey to constilulional penile in hysteria. They know that lhe I ried-anil-l i lie 1 nited Stales Constitution must nul be lightly amended. I poinl mil to you that il is a strange fact thai in over a century and three-quarters we have found suffi- e ienl and adequate lhe original Constitution and twenty-two amendments. Bul in this latest Congress alone more than five times that number nf constitutional amendments have been loosely proposed. Why all this amendmenl frenzy? Why change ;i document which heis worked sn for Whv abandon llie land marks nf the past? Whv replace failh wilh fear and reason with hysteria? UN COSTS LITTLE 3. Vie come now to a third charge. It is charged that the United Nations is costly, lhat it is a financial rathole. Thai is absurd, too. The United Nations itself costs the citizens nf America nn lhe average around sixteen cents per year. That is less than lhe cosl of a package of cigarettes. Do vou Ihink thai il is worth a package nf cigarettes in save world peace? Do you know how much wc were spending during World Wen II? We were blowing up 27ii million dollars per day. I repeal 275 million dollars per day, in order tn kill Germans and Japanese. Do vim think il is worth spending six- te'i'ii cents pci" year in order to avoid some day having to kill Russian l"'\- and havin« American soldiers eunl civil ians die in the same conflagration? Of cuius.' \nu know the answer In that question. lhe 1 \ is definitely worth every cent we contribute to it. Now. there eire other charge's which have been hurled against the UN—like charges of disloyally of certain United Sieiles personnel there.

THE ATOMS-FOR-PEACE PLAN I should like tn refer now ill sonic length in llu' greal proposal which was made by lhe Presidenl nf the United States in his atoms-for-peace suggestion lo Ihe UN. On December 8 of lasl year [1953] Presidenl Eisenhower suueehl ;i way out of the tragic record of failure that had marred the efforts nf the 1 nited Nations lo control mass destruction weapons.

For. nn lhat day, our Presidenl laid before the General \ssembly uf the l'nileel Nations his bold new proposal. 1 nlike all previous negative efforts to ii\ in reduce or eliminate atomic materials for military purposes, ihis was a positive, constructive approach along a new avenue toward peace. Very simply, il extended em invitation tn the governments principally involved to begin making joinl contributions from their stockpiles of normal uranium and fissionable materials lo an international Atomic Energy Agency.
