Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - December 30, 1964, Mason City, Iowa The UN and its troubles Snarled and complicated By JAMES MARLOW Associated News Analyst WASHINGTON AP The 115raember United Nations is doing business by pantomime Its snarled in back dues voting rights and facesaving The basic question Does the Soviet Union have a right to vote in the General Assembly until it pays its share of the UN peacekeeping costs The roots of the trouble go back 14 years to 1950 when the North Korean Communists in vaded South Korea The 11member Security Council went into session Five of these members are perma nent The United States the So viet Union Britain France Na tionalist China Anyone of the five has the veto power to kill any severe action by the council But just then by a freak the Soviet Un ion was boycotting the group The council promptly voted to fight the invasion with UN forces The Soviet Union re turned too late to undo this and tried to be a bottleneck Then the United States thought it time to shift some of this absolute power away from the council It proposed that the Genera assembly made up of all the UN members and with no one holding a veto should be able to take action against an aggres sor The vote was 52 to 5 The United Nations was a lot small er then The five dissenters were the Soviet Union and the Soviet bloc Years passed anc more trouble came In 1956 the General Assembly voted to send a UN peace keeping force into the Middle East to prevent trouble between Arabs and Israelis In 1960 i a peacekeeping force into the Congo The Soviet Union opposec both moves France opposed the Congo action But sustaining a UN armed force costs millions The Soviet Union and France fell behind in their share Thats a rough sketch of the background The story gets a little technical now because Ar tide 19 of the UN Charte says If a member falls behinc for two years in what it owes toward UN expenses it shal have no vote in the assembly By the time the General As sembly began its winter session this year on Dec 1 the Sovie Union was behind million altogether 15 nations were be hind and so was Franc which paid its share of Middle East costs but not those for th Congo But France wont become two years behind until Jan 1 and therefore until now hasnt been in a position to force a test o Article 19 Could it vote afte being two years behind in dues The United States insisted with approval by Congress tha the Soviet Union should b made to pay its dues or be pre vented from voting The International Court o Justice two years ago uphel Article 19 but no one in the Unit ed Nations has to abide by th courts decision and the Sovie Union ignored it The Soviet Union argued th UN operations in the Middl East and the Congo were bot illegal It says only the Security Council where it has a veto and not the assembly has au thority to vote funds for peace keeping Too much of a showdown be tween the United States and th Soviet Union could wreck th world organization So when the United Nation opened Dec l there was a kin of general tippytoeing in search for a solution and thi was the embarrassing part of it This country insisted the So viet Union couldnt vote in th assembly till it paid its bill Th pantomime began when the as had to elect a presiden How could it do that withou voting A way was found new president Alex Quaison Sackey of Ghana was chosen b acclamation arranged before hand Then came another problem Four new members of the Secu rity Council had to be elected b the assembly All the counc members except the big fiv which are permanent hold thei seats for a limited time More pantomime The UF members avoided a conflic over voting by filing into th presidents office and markin ballots This was prearrangec too North Iowa

controlling cancer by vaccines and miracu lous curative drugs will be achieved quicker than well get to the moon perhaps soon after 1970 Dr Jacob GershonCohen of Philadelphia said he based that prediction on his confidence that by that time breakthrough before 1970 1 Final proof will have been established that many if not most cancers are caused by viruses and Further devel opment will have been made on recent discoveries in under standing the structure of the basic core of all viruses spe cifically the nucleic acids DNA znd RNA He said these discoveries are probably more significant if less appreciated by the public than the unlocking of atomic energy GershonCohen radiologist of the Albert Einstein Medical Center spoke at a news confer ence prior to acting 3s chair man Wednesday of a symposi um on viruses and cancer at the 131st meeting of the American Association for the Advance ment of Science GcrshonCohcn also told news men Achievement of better con trol over ordinary viruses including those of the common cold may help reduce the danger of getting cancer It is possible some sttch viruses may be insidious helpmates of can cer causers or even cancer causers themselves The day will come when the taking of the temperature of specific areas of the body with devices based on infrared de tection techniques will be as important as Xray in helping detect ailments All people

GershonCohen said he expected the cancer break throughs would be almost achieved by then In answer to another question he said that by then he expected the way would finally be open to perfecting vaccines and cura tive drugs He added that it would be only wild specula tion to hazard a guess on when such vaccines and drugs actual ly would be developed count of the voics The 27yearold Democrat
