con cludes the series of daily travel articles by Editor Earl Hall which has been appearing in this space since last Nov 15 Mr Hall has been gratified by the numerous evidences of a wide and appreciative reader ship By W EARL HALL VTEW YORKA few hours aft er our KLM Dutch Lines plane glided down to a landing at the Idlewild Airport on Long Island I made my way to the United Nations home overlooking the East River here I had been seeing the people of some 30 nationsin their native habitat and I reasoned it would be interesting to see how their representatives and spokesmen behave in the organization set up to bring about a lasting peace It seemed a good idea and it was Soon after came into exist ence back in the middle 40s I visited its General Assembly at Flushing Meadows and its Secur ity Council headquarters at Lake Success Long Island But this was the first time I had actually set foot in the amazing new home of Enormous Plant Its on an 18acre sixblock tract which stretches from 42nd to 48th Streets between First Ave nueand East River The enor mous physical plant contains quarters for the General As sembly the Secretariat t h e standing committees and a mag

for Russia and its overwhelming passion for peace and caustic criticism for the western nations which think they will profit from another war And in that performance before my eyes I had an explanation in capsule form of why the United Nations as now constituted can not even hope to cope with the task for which it was established namely t h c maintenance of peace in our world community of nations Red Propaganda Here was a puppet of the Krem lin pretending to speak for the people of Hungary In truth he was an Hungarian public enemy Hes still posing as the voice of Hungary using the halls of the as a sounding board for Communist propaganda What a travesty Under the rules of the sponsor of this otlytongued in dividual meaning the Kremlin can place an insurmountable boulder in the path of world peace by merely calling out nyet in a session of the Securi ty Council I return from this worldwide jaunt more than ever convinced that mans most fundamental in stinct is for peace I saw no act of unkindness on the entire trip until I arrived on this scene I saw nothing to support the claim that man is a fighting ani mal Under the circumstances it would seem to me that men of peace should be given the tools with which to fashion the peace for which they long Theyre en titled to better national govern ments than most of them have theyre entitled to a which is more than a debating
