that about the most melancholy persons in this old world of ours must be those who have lost all faith In the United Nations and are urging American withdrawal fromJ the the organization That would mean returning to the situation which down through the centuries has Nothing fundamental would have been changed It can be said I would be the first to concede it that the United Nations has riottlived up fully to thetiigbr tnjssipii set for ft 11 years agi wtien it came officially into being It has not prevented man frpm killing his fellow man on the field of battle War has not been banished as an instrument for dif ferences between nations Nobodyihas been more of on this score than I have for the reason that nobody cpjild be more critical havent wanted to see go down the drain until there was some plaus ible alternative Ive never heard a rational substitute suggested To withdraw from would mean to go it alone build our fenses as high as we can while other nations are doing the same thing It would mean cutting loose from those of peace and other nations In a real sense it would mean more orless withdrawing from the hu man race Waiting for An HBomb All of this I insist is about as melancholy as anything that could be imagined I am not ready to stand back and wait for somebody to drop an HBomb Theres every reason to believe that if man goes on making these fiendish contrivances some in sane person some day will order their use History suggests that unpleasant prospect Its almost a certainty To run out on the UN would be for our peaceloving nation to desert those of peaceful intent and good will the world around They are in overwhelming ma jority in all nations Russia in cluded Of that Im persuaded But without or its equiva lent they are at the mercy of the limited few who make but dont themselves fight our wars In any number of particulars as it is now constituted has a proud record Ill be spelling out some of these in this visit with you prompted by the observance of day But on the one test the ability to end war as Ive already admitted just hasnt measured up And theres no point in trying to make it appear otherwise Its been a case of sending a boy to do a mans work Where courage has been needed weve had timidity Suez a in Point There could of course be no more graphic illustrations of the thing Fm talking about here than thecurrent Suez

final two weeks of the presi dential campaign will be pri vate Sided With Adlai Bulganins note was made pub lic Saturday It referred point edly to the campaign and ap peared to side with Stevenson against Eisenhower who has blasted as incredible folly his opponents proposal to stop H bomb tests The President in an angry re tort to Bulganin accused the Soviet premier of interference in domestic affairs arid with seeming to impugn my sincerity i Stevenson spending Monday at his Idbertyville home to plan his campaign was expected to issue a more pointed statement about the Presidents letter Internal Issue Eisenhower told Bulganin the sending of his note in the midst of a national election campaign constitutes an interference by a foreign nation in our in ternal The President said that if sim ilar interference were dulged in by an ambassador it would lead to his being de clared persona non grata not acceptable in accordance with longestablished He also told Bulganin that a statement in the Soviet premiers letter about Secretary of State John Foster Dulles was not only unwarranted but is personally offensive to Bulganin had accused Dulles of obvious dis tortion of Russian policy
