that if the United Nations is to have meaning it must have some teeth If it is to measure up to the assignment written into its charter it must be equipped with the means for dealing with those who break the peace of the world One of these developments took place in Hungary last winter when Russia in utter disregard of international law or decency sent troops tanks and machine guns in to mow down the free domloving people of that little nation after they had thrown off the shackles of a hated govern ment I was in Vienna while the stragglers from Hungarys free dom fight were still arriving at the escapee centers I saw them I talked with them I brought messages from them to their friends or relatives in America I was in Budapests airport for a brief time while the Russian plane on which I was flying into Russia sat down for refueling and servicing There again I had a glimpse of what happens to peo ple when the slimy hands of Com munism is clapped down on them Not Even a Token Force But the point Im leading up to is this If the United Nations had had even a token force of troops to send into Hungary at the pro pitious time Im confident that the Kremlin would not have sent its mercenaries in to take over To do so would have been to af front world opinion As it was Moscow that the Russian troops were there an invitation This istlie first of the two de velopments to Svitfch I have made reference Now were ready for the other one and its a hap pier story The setting of thi story is the border between Israeli and Egypt and a tiny and hastily assembled United Na tions Emergency Force is the central actor in it Peace at teast an absence of war hasi been the fruit In a report on the matter for a public affairs pamphlet under Carnegie Endowment sponsor ship William R Frye of the Christian Science Monitor staff had this to say Two simultaneous crises in Hungary and the Middle East arose to challenge the United Na tions in late 1956 In one case the world organization relied solely on moral force and despite world public opinion it was not able to prevent a catastrophe in Hun gary A New Instrument In Egypt the UN added to its moral force a wholly new instru ment for peacemaking an in ternational police force The force was little more than a symbol a tangible manifestation of the UNs moral might only about 5000 UN soldiers But a war was stopped and a period of rel ative calm was achieved Many other factors of course the Christian Science Monitor writer continued in his report contributed to the UNs relative success in Egypt and its failure in Hungary But UNEF the United Nations Emergency Force pSayed an important part Many thoughtful people have urged thai the UN obtain such a force as a permanent part of its peace making machinery The United Nations Emergency Force Frye explained was an accident It was he said created in such haste that even its par ents scarcely recognized it It was sent out to do a mans work while still an infant with few tools and fewer instructions he pointed out At home the parents have quarreled over who should feed it and clothe it and over how long they should permit it to live Unexplained Success Yet somehow Frye obI served UNEF is a success It has won the hearts of nearly everyone from President Nasser of Egypt to Sen Knowland of California and from Foreign Minister Malik of Lebanon to Marshal
