that within tHe past year Ive hadra hundred letters assailing UN and urging that States withdraw from it For some strange reason an inordinate proportion of these critical letters have reached me from Arizona In each case Ive acknowl edged the letter in what I hope was a courteous tone Iveclosed my note with this question After weve got out of UN what do you suggest we do Ive asked for a specific alter native course of action i And would you believe it To this t day I have not received of answer to my query or not person had the courage tpftwhatever it would takeT our age of nuclear power am

created by the failure of a large number of UN members to pay dues and assessments will be re solved is still in doubt The mat ter is still being kicked around on Capitol Hill and the World Court
