Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - December 16, 1961, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for the Home CrrvG VOL 100 Associated United Press Internationa FuU newspaper that mokes all North lowans HOME EDITION MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY DECEMBER neighbors 7e Paper Consist of Two US cheered by U N vote on Red China UNITED NATIONS NY AP prestige in the United Na tions soared Saturday with the stunning defeat of a Sovietled at tempt to seat Communist China in place of Chiang Kaisheks Chi nese Nationalists UN rift widens Solution still not qt hand By PHIL NEWSOM UPI Foreign News Analyst Like a stone dropped into a pond the wideningripples from the United Nations Katanga ven ture have produced discords among allies and aroused seri ous doubts about the wisdom of the decision which sent UN troops into theCongo province in the first place Contributing to both was a sense of frustration arising from the fact that after 17 months and a succession of crises the Congo conflict appeared no near er a solution Other factors also contributed One was the obvious hostility to the UN forces among both the black and white populations of Elisabethville capital of Ka tanga and center of UN oper ations Another was the suspicion that the United NationswasaK to force a politicalde cision on Katanga thus exceed ing its mission A third was sympathy foi M o i s e Tshombe secessionisl president of Katanga who has been among thermore railitantly antiCommunist leaders in black Africa Contributing further to the doubts werereports that UN forces wereproving themselves just as triggerhappy as Afri cans and that until their arrival Elisebethville had been about the most peaceful place in the Congo Tshombe proclaimed the inde of Katanga on July n 1960 11 days after the Congo received its independence from Belgium On the following day answering a plea from Congo President Joseph Kasavubu and Premier Patrice Lumumba the UN Security Council authorized the sending of troops to the Congo to reestablish peace and unity This established the pattern for subsequent events in which the UN sought to establish a strong central government in Leopoldville while at the same time dealing with other seces sionist movements in Kasai and Oriental provinces What Tshombe had that the others did not were the strong financial resources which nor mally supplied the Congo with half its tax resources This came from uranium cop per tin and gold with which Katanga abounds and which is dominated by the powerful Bel gian mining company Union Miniere Despite the violence swirling around it the company last year was able to turn in a profit of nearly and should do as well this year Tax incomefrom Union Min iere largely has financed Tshombes army paid for his Belgian French and other mer cenaries and purchased his weapons Acting UN Secretary Gen eral Thant recently charged the company even had built some of Tshombes armored cars for him Despite the companys denial there have been charges that a giant company lobby operates in Tshombes favor and might be at least partially responsible for the coolness with which both Britain and France have viewed the UN Katanga operation Whatever the cause it has created friction among Britain France and the United States which enthusiastically has sup ported the UN in the past 4 The General Assemblys 4831 rebuff of Peipings bid was hailed as a victory for the United State which finally met the 10yearok China issue headon in a test o strength with the Soviet Union The fact that only 36 nalion voted for Red China surprisec many delegates It was obviously less than anticipated by th United States which had sough to block the Communists with iL proposal making China seating an important question requir ing a twothirds vote for adop tion The Reds actually fell more than a dozen votes short of even a simple majority Twenty coun tries abstained from voting US Ambassador Adlai E Stev enson declared the result had re inforced Nationalist Chinas long disputed right to hold its seat in the United Nations Stevenson said he was gratified by the outcome of the first showdown on the seating question since the Communists took iver the China mainland in 1949 But Soviet Deputy ForeignMin ister Valerian AZorin said the vote showed many nations felt the China problem should be solved immediately and radically We are convinced Zorin said that many who were com pelled to vote against or abstain on this Soviet resolution wil vote in favor at the next session Delegates predicted however hat the Communists would have to wait a long time to see Peiping get the China seat They pointec out that the thumping 6134 vote or the decision requiring two thirds approval of any change in be seating had set a preceden hat would be difficult to over turn Britain votedwith the Unite States on the twothirdsquestion butswungwith Russia on the pro posal to seat Red China Franc stayed with the United State throughout the

contri butions to the Christmas Cheer Fund Saturday was the usiia generous gift o the Rt R e v Msgr Arthur J of Holy Family Parish As usua the monsignor hadsomethingito say about the subject of giving I believe the practice of giv ing at Christmas time should extend beyond externals and reach to ourselves otherwise we will receive only externals he said Gift giving at Christ mas time makes little sense if its purpose is simply to fill our homes with more things We cannot give Christ things on the anniversary of his birth but the things we give such as our dollars to the Cheer Fund we must give lovingly and thoughtfully as symbols of love m our love for one another as His loving children May the Good Lord bless your interest and enthusiasm A suggestion This is to suggest that in dividuals and organizations planning Christmas baskets get in touch with Family Serv ice Inc which administers the Christmas Cheer Fund for clearance of names This will protect against both duplica tions and omissions Persons knowing of families needing help should also get in touch with Family Service which has its office on the sixth floor of the First National Bank Building ror such spiritual work which brings such joy at Christmas to so many of our fellows will be seen from the list above that the employes of the Jnited Home Bank and Trust Co added to their contribu ion This makes a total of ror this generous group We as readers of Hie best paper in the Midwest think the Cheer Fund a very fine thing and we wish for it the best vrote Lucile Factor secretary of the North Iowa Writers Club
