Herald Tribune Ntws Service UNITED NATIONS N Y Adlai Stevensons flashes of humor penetrate even the densesl clouds hanging over the United States Mission to the UN which he heads Though official silence on the abortive Cuban invasion is the rule at least for the moment at the United States mission and General Assembly debate on the question may have been the most difficult episode in Stevensons career there is no check on the Stevensonian tendency to jest and lampoon He told a group the other night that the Cuban debate and its aftermath reminded him of the way Mrs Franklin D Roosevelt described her mail after she ap peared on a television commercial for margarine IT WAS ABOUT equally divided he quoted her as say ing One half was sad because I had damaged my reputation The other half was happy because I had damaged my reputation Stevenson brought to the UN a reputation for wit and elo quence and a brand of liberalism most delegations found attractive Despite whatever embarrassment the United States may have suf fered in the Cuban affair he re mained the assembly sessions dominant figure Henry Cabot Lodge the Eisen hower administrations chief dele gate seemed to cast himself i the role of a knight in shinin armor going out to slap the Com munist dragon and was noted fo delivering angry counterblast both on and off the floor to ever Soviet attack Stevenson sometimes could ac complish the same thing bu with an air of good humor Only recently he recalled tha during World War II in Washing ton it was said that one eithe had a heart attack or ulcers o developed a sense of humor sometimes think that it is a sense of humor that has saved us here he added EXPOSED TO the sessions firs full Soviet denunciation of the West Stevenson who was member of the mission during the early days of the cold war in 1948 and 1947 remarked Well this is where I came in When a friend congratulate him on the 5914 vote in favor o the US position in the recen Korea debate Stevenson re marked What a paradox Ive spent half my life trying not to be an advocate of the cold war but here I am praised by all my friends for being such a good cole war warrior But he can shake a fist while invoking history and philosophy when the situation required Anc as he did during two presidential campaigns as Democratic candi date he would agonize for two or three hours pencil in hand on legalsize yellow pads to polish a speech f Lodge employed short sentences in a simple and direct style Booming them out in a parade ground voice at a fairly rapid clip Stevenson in a thinner al most reedy voice uses a rising andfalling manner of oratory He appears to speak more slowly though a stenotypist swears the wordsperminute rate is the same OUTSIDE THE UNs meeting rooms both men were far too busy to spend much time taking their ease in the delegates lounges where much of the UNs behindthescenes business is transacted In view of many delegates Lodge was a proper Bostonian who tried hard to be a friend of many delegates but was not al ways successful because of a rather aloof manner Despite his Princetonian bent Stevenson is more of a gregarious expansive midwesterner who seeks out people Showing special cordiality to the new African ambassadors Steven son has visited many in their homes He can be seen sitting on the floor listening to music with group of Africans visiting the Greenwich Village apartment of an upper Voltan diplomat and ap parently having the time of his lift I GlobeGazette photo by Jo Moore MOTHERS DAY HAS SPECIAL Oliver De Wald Mrs
