Bernon F Mitchell 31 and William H Martin 29 turned up al a Moscow news conference and Flags too problem ofUN Theres room now for 120 By WILLIAM HUMPHREYS New York Herald Tribune News Service UNITED NATIONS N Y The minor landscaping or flag pole problem that each new membership means for the United Nations h a s a major redecoration tag on it this year thanks to the cluster of15 new ly independent governments waiting for the GeneralAssem bly to approve their applications with more to come before Dec 31 The familiar parade of wood en color bearers that arcs the Secretariat Building on the south and the gate to the Gen eral Assembly on the north lias gone as far as it can go without vaulting over both entrances and under the impetus of the membership queue both the jumps now are being made AFTER THE General Assem bly convenes Sept 20 and acts on the applications 10 flagpoles south of t h e Secretariat gate and 10 others north of the Gen eral Assembly gate will be in service providing the United Na tions facade with a distinct new look The decision to break the new ground was made by David Vaughn the director of general services When the work is finished the existing row of 82 poles corres ponding to the present U N membership will be reduced to 78 Two are being taken down at the other end to eliminate what is regarded as overcrowd ing With the 20 additions the new lineup will then provide for a total of 98 members However there will be enough ground available at each end of the new arrangement for the flagpoles to provide for 120 members a number that no U N official expects to see real ized in the predictable future VAUGHN IS THE U N offi cial who has the delicate respon sibility of seeing that all the col ors of themember nations are flown to the satisfaction of their ever watchful envoys It is a mission that never ends because governments frequently alter their flags in detail just as each new American state has added a star to the United Stales col ors Furthermore design and de tail are only one part of the as signment of keeping the U N flags flying in consonance with the pride and pleasure of a 11 concerned As Vaughn has learned through his years with the U N color if it is not ex actly the official shade can be just as offensive to a visiting diplomat as an incorrectly pro portioned stripe To handle complaints in this field requires diplomatic tact or to iaterpret Vaughns phrase the ability to stifle ones feel ings An example of this self control occurred a f e w years ago when an irate chiefof a del egation to the General Assembly protested that his countrys em blem w a s being flown upside down outside the buildings AFTER HAVING assured themselves that the envoys vi sion was wrong and the flags display correct a 11 hands in volved in the channel of com plaint dutifully ignored the facts and gave the impression that the mistake would not be al lowed to happen again An air of reality added by having the flag lowered and raised with the same side up of course A current problem of the Protocol and Liaison Section is who is to conic ahead of whom between the Belgian Congo Re public and the Frencli Congo Re

fessed traitors The Pentagon said one of them was mentally sick and both were obviously confused CHAIRMAN FRANCIS E Wal ter DPa of the House Commit tee on UnAmerican Activities said the FBI had advised the National Security Agency that one of the pair was a homosex ual Walter said the FBI gave the NSA this information before the two were hired in 1957 Walter said he could not iden tify which one he meant The Pentagon didnt say which one it considered mentally ill A Pentagon spokesman asked about Walters charge said the department was sticking by its statement of last Friday that FBI files contained no deroga tory information about the two The big question was this How could the pair one now accused of being a homosexual one identified as mentally sick and both listed as obviously confused be hired or hang onto jobs in one of the top secret government agencies NSA IS a defense headquarters about unit with 20 miles from Washington It operates 24 hours a day intercepting radio
