Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - August 24, 1953, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for the Home MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALJ NORTH 10WANS NEIGHBOR 5 HOME EDITION VOL LIX Associated Press and United Press Full Lease Wires Seven Cents a Copy MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY AUGUST 74 1953 One Mans Opinion A Radio Commtnfary By W EARL HALL Managing Editor A Chance to Make UN Something Real TTS beyond the understanding o the average American how th British could seriously consider ad milling Communist China to th United Nations For nearly tw years the Chinese Reds have been killing a lot of American boys ant at least a few Britons in brazen and contemptuous defiance of UN British Laborites in Parliamen have been extremely critical of the assertion by Secretary Dulles tha United States would oppose to utter limit any attempt to open the UN doors to Mao TseTungs rep resentative The altitude of the British party in power is more guardedly expressed but it isn greatly different in its essence If we could understand the Brit ish in this matter we would under stand both the British and the a lot of other nation too their disin clination to quit trading with the Chinese at the lime they were our enemy in battle It didnt make sense to us but the other nations seemed able to rationalize it wilh out difficulty Recognition Didnt Help Several years ago the British government was quick to recog nize the Red regime The explaha tion was expressed in this manner We arent approving the Commu nist form of government in any sense of the word were merely recognizing the fact that its Mao TseTung not Chiang Kaishek whos at the helm in China In the working out of things the recognition availed Britain nothing whatever It proved a onewaj street There was nothing of re ciprocity about it Hong Kong was saved of course but there is no reason to believe that this was tiec up to the act of recognition What Im coming to and per haps too slowly is that in the months rather immediately ahead there is going to be enormous pressure either to get Red China into UN IN PLACE of Nationalist China or to get Red China into UN ALONG WITH Nationalist China Andits going to take a lot of doing on our part to prevent it thats the subject 01 this little visit with you on this occasion Lets Be Affirmative That which promises to be an up hill and defensive action on our part can be turned into an af firmalive and constructive pro gram if there is a suffici ency of vision and enlightened self interest on the part of those who shape our foreign policy and enun ciate our stand at the sessions of the United Nations Lets not just say No to Britain and those who can be ex pected to join her in the demand that Red China be admitted to UN Lets beat them to the punch with a proposal and program to give life and meaning to the world organization which was designed to maintain the peace This counter proposal would be so much more important and dra matic that our British friends would scarcely have the guts to take the lime of Ihe assembly for consideration of whether the Chi nese Reds should be accepted in UN membership Under this proposal to extend law and order to world dimensions through a slrengthening of UN Red China as well as Red Chinas master mind in the Kremlin would have every opportunity to reveal its good faith All it would need to do would be to consent to play the game according to the rules or suffer the consequences Its Covered by a Bill Actually what Im suggesting here isnt anything new or star tling To the contrary it is all cov ered in a bill introduced in the Sen ate on June 3 1953 by Republican Ralph R Flanders on behalf of himself and some 30 other sen iitors of varied political hues from John Bricker at one extreme to Hu bert Humphrey and Wayne Morse at the other end of the prism Thai measure SCR 32 is des cribed as a bili on world disarm ament and world development In language which doesnt lend it self to misunderstanding it spells out the crying necessity for a United Nations which will not have to be satisfied with any stalemate selllement of future police actions brought about by recalcitrant na tions It recognizes that the ex istent UN is a boy trying to do a mans work Let me quote Now therefore be it resolved by the United States Senate the House of Representatives concur that it continues to be the declared purpose of the United CONTINUED ON PAGE 2 Rh PapnCoiulsU ot Two Ono No 371 ee Balks on India at UN Parley Ike Supports Plan to Up Trade DENVER Colo Eisenhower
