GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON R u s s i as Premier Khrushchev has asked that U N headquarters be transferred out of h e United States because of demonstra tions against him in New York among other reasons It is one of historys little ironies that the Soviet Union was instrumental in establishing the United Nations present home in the United States and in New York City in particular We have the word of Sumner Welles former under secretary of state that the site was chosen over the strong objections of the western European nations part ly because of the stubborn re fusal of the Soviet government to agree to the location of the United Nations at the old head quarters of the League of Na tions in Geneva and because of its desire that the site should be outside western Europe SELECTION OF a permanent seat for the U N was a matter of controversy from the begin ning President Roosevelt him self told Secretary of State Cor dell Hull in September 1944 that the various organs of the then nebulous international or ganization should meet at dif ferent spots around the globe F D R was particularly taken with the Azores as a meet ing place for the Security Coun cil Here the delegates would have the advantage of detach ment from immediate events yet air transportation would make the location easily acces sible Roosevelt recalled the World War I peace conference and the pressures to which it had been subjected at Paris also the pressures brought upon the League of Nations in London before it was moved to Geneva CLEAR A AFTER A tentative decision

Preparatory Commission in October 1945 to place the head quarters in the States the whole question was re opened but an attempt to sub stitute Europe for the United States was defeated by a vote of 25 to 23 with 2 abstentions New controversy arose over choice of a site within the Unit ed States One of the more novel suggestions was the Black Hills of South Dakota so that the dele gates could gaze upon the re mains of dinosaurs and realize that their own job was to pre vent the extinction of man The choice finally narrowed down to New York Philadelphia Boston or San Francisco Russia said that under no condition would its delegation go to San Francisco and it turned thumbs down on Boston because of the antiSoviet feeling in that area Moscow clearly favored New York but was willing to accept Philadel phia as a compromise Much to everyones relief John D Rockefeller Jr pointed the way by offering a gift of a 17acre plot of land worth million along the East River in New York City as a site for the headquarters The offer was quickly accepted IMPLICIT IN THE lobbying for New York was the conten tion that the United States which had turned its back on the League of Nations would give the strong support needed by the new international organi zation if its headquarters were in this country As C L Sulz berger columnist for the New York Times recalls Predic tions that a U N enclave in New York might produce prob lems in terms of housing travel prejudice and other barriers were lightly brushed aside Sumner Wells was one who believed that no more unwise or illogical decision could have been reached His prediction shortly after New York had been selected makes interesting read ing today The location of the perma nent headquarters of the United Nations within the territory of any one of the major powers will inevitably give rise sooner or later at a moment of crisis to the charge that public opin ion of that major power is creating an unwarranted influ ence upon the delegates and that such an atmosphere is not con ducive to an impartial and ob jective consideration of their problems Clear Lake Bank and Trust Co and chairman of the board of the Iowa Hardware Mutual In surance

concerned he should have stayed home in Havana He may still be a hero to his revolutionary cohorts at home but in the eyes of most dele gates fo the 96member UN General Assembly Castro is leaving this country a some what battered warrior The United States did well by itself Tuesday night To Cas tros interminable tirade of al most five hours in which he ac cused the United States of re sponsibility

they thought Castro might even have created sympathy for the United States where little sympathy had existed before It usually is not difficult for a LatinAmerican speaker to win an attentive audience with an attack on the United States Among the neighbors to the south there frequently is a cer tain amount of secret or even open satisfaction in watching rich Uncle Sam take it on the chin from one of his less fortun ate Latin relatives THIS LATENT antiYankee feeling has been Castros politi cal capital in Latin America where he still charms many among the masses and raises hopes among those of the ex treme left But he has frightened many too amongvthem the men who at the present time are running Latin Americas other governments and domestic af fairs He deepened their fright with his UN appearance Castros speech obviously failed to arouse enthusiasm for bis violent themes among Latin American delegations Only the Communists cheerfully led by Nikita Khrushchev and an iso lated few others joined in bursts of applause for the Cubans meandering scattershot attack on the United States Delegates of young African nations with a sort of fascina tion looked on amazed while Castro spoke
