Were Congress to withhold required appropriations to support our share in the UN', that organization would probably collapse, with precisely the same unfavorable results as an out-and-out abrogation of the charter. The grave danger arises through the militant desire of international communism to conquer the world — us included; and our withdrawal would leave the freedom-loving nationals weakened and further exposed to Soviet infiltration. This nation would thereby suffer in its foreign relations. It would lose its role of world leadership together with its allies. Confronted with this situation, secessionists would ex- elude Russia from the UN. But how? The charter's text affords no answer. From a practical point of view it seems advantageous that the Soviet remain — if for no better reason than to afford some slight information as to what goes on behind the iron curtain, and to supply samples of its activity among us. 3.
