Reforms Needed To Alter U.N. Context

The Saturday Review
ON JUNE 24, two former Presi-
dents of the United Nations
General Assembly sent a possibly
historic letter and report to the
permanent delegates of the U.N.
The two signers were General
Carlos P. Romulo of the Philip-
pines, president of the General
Assembly in 1949, and Sir Muham-
mad Zafrul a Khan of Pakistan,
who presided in 1962 and 1963
Their letter reported the re-
sults of a private conference com-
pleted in San Francisco just as
the special twentieth anniversary
ceremonies were getting under
IN ADDITION to General Rom-
ulo and Sir Zafrulla, 12 men-all
of them distinguished political
scientists, philosophers, or public
servants-participated in the pri-
vate conference, arranged by the
Stanley Foundation, of Muscatine,
They include Dr. Hideki of
Japan, Nobel Prize winner; Dr.
Luis Quintanilla of Mexico, former
chairman of the OAS Council;
Robert Buron, chairman of the
French National Committee on
Productivity; Dr. Hermond Lan-
nung, member of the Danish dele-
gations to the U.N.; Gordon Fair-
weather, member of the Canadian
Parliament; Zenon Rossides, Cy-
priot ambassador to the United
States; Dr. Ahmad Houman, as-
sistant to the Prime Minister of
Iran; Ambassador S. Edward Peal,
member of the Liberian delega-
tion to the U.N.; M. van der Stoel,
member of the Netherlands Parlia-
ment; Chief S. O. Adebo, per-
manent representative of Nigeria
to the U.Nt; Grenville Clark,
American lawyer and coauthor of
"World Peace Through World
Law;" and C. Maxwell Stanley
American industrialist and head
of the Stanley Foundation.
The purpose of the conference
was to apply specialized human
intelligence to what may well be
the most important question in
the world-how to make the U.N.
work; which is to say, how to
rescue the U.N. from the limita-
tions and weaknesses inherent in
a pre-Atomic Charter and the
difficulties thrust upon it by na-
tions that go their own way-
whether by withholding financial
The Basic
IN THE CURRENT controversy
over whether Section 14 (b) of
the TaftHartley Act should be
repealed, the argument is fre-
quently made that the 19 states
presently involved-those with the
so-called right-to-work laws-are
relatively unimportant industrial-
ly. The facts deny this contention.
While it is true that none of
the 19 individually could be called
an industrial giant, these states
collectively represent one-fifth of
the manufacturing activity of the
entire United States.
Now that we've set the record
straight on the industrial import-
ance of these states, we'll state
flatly that this is all beside the
point. The relative importance of
the states, industrially speaking,
should not be at issue in the 14
(b) controversy.
THE ISSUE simply is this:
Should Americans be compelled to
join a union in order to hold a

ence considered changes needed
by the U.N. if it is to survive and
world peace is to be maintained.
In writing to the U.N. delegates
about their meeting, General
Romulo and Sir Zafrulla com-
"Twenty years ago the repre-
sentatives of 51 nations met here
in San Francisco to breathe life
into man's great hope for lasting
peace. A tired and shattered world
watched as the Charter of the
United Nations was written. The
world accepted it as a threshold
from fear and war to hope and

mendation for a strengthened U.N.
possessing these essentials of a
peaceful world:
* Complete and enforced dis-

maintain internal order.

* A General Assembly em-

responsible to the General Assem-
bly; and (in the opinion of most,
though not all the conferees' a
revised voting system in the Gen-
eral Assembly appropriate to the
strengthened U.N.,including aboli-
tion of the veto of the Security
* A strengthened International
Court of Justice empowered to in-
terpret the U.N. Charter and de-
cide all international legal dis-
putes; a system of regional courts;
and such other tribunals as are
necessary to settle international
disputes which do not lend them-
selves to decision through legal
* A world development pro-
gram. A major part of the savings
brought about through enforce-
able disarmament would be made
available for fostering the eco-
nomic and social advancement of

oblivious of the drastic nature of
their proposals or the complexities
involved in carrying them out.
They emphasized they were not
asking for Utopia.
"Confine our recommendations
to the minimum essentials for
peace. Nothing less than enforce-
able world law can succeed. The
strengthened U.N. we advocate
will not change the nature of man
nor solve all the world's problems,
but it will keep the human race
from committing suicide.
"The difficulties of building en-
forceable world law are great, but
the hazards of a world without
enforceable law are greater. We
have. heard all the reasons why it
cannot be done, but we know it
must be done. We speak for an
idea whose time has come." k.
A SIGNIFICANT aspect of the
report is that many of the men
who signed it have a long record
of serving the U.N., officially or
The inevitable and basic ques-

tion that proceeds out of this fact
is, why should it be necessary for
such ideas to be developed outside
the formal councils of the U.N?
The answer is the basic one-con-
The context of the U.N. is one
of absolute national sovereignty.
The U.N. is therefore an instru-
ment for carrying out a consensus
rather than for defining and en-
forcing strict principles on which
a workable peace necessarily rests.
THE U.N. HAS made inroads
into the anarchy of the whole,
but it has not dispatched the an-
archy. It can focus world public
opinion on certain situations and
can thereby generate useful pres-
sure, but it cannot enforce obli-
gations essential to the public
Context, quite literally, makes
all the difference in the world. It
is the difference between a man
in the General Assembly thinking
and acting as an individual, ap-
plying his own intelligence and
common sense to problems on their
merits, as a man officially convey-
ing the position of a government
conditioned by a world of national
interests, alliances and special

THE Secretary-General, not
representing any nation, can of
course be objective, but his sta-
tion is often one of lonely and
sometimes tragic isolation, for he
cannot act effectively without the
cooperation of the nations which
are not inclined to be objective

What men of the Stanley Con-
ference sought to do was to
change context. They want to
create a context in which objective
law is the yardstick by which con-
flicts and tensions are resolved.
They see a direct relationship
between the architecture of world
organization and the existence of
a sane world society. They know
that the desireable context is one
in which problems coming before
a world judicial agency can ~be
considered against a background
of codified law and precedent and

WHATEVER the occupations or
preoccupations of the people who
inhabit this earth, anything they
say or do will make little sense
in terms of their essential security
and well being until they identify
world anarchy as their personal
problem, pit themselves against it,
and press for the establishment of
world law.



Festival Theater-Showplace for Shakespeare

'Mahagonny'--Strat ford's Best

spearean Festival began 13 years
ago when the few plays given each
summer were presented in a tent
on the ground now occupied by the
Festival Theatre. Since then the

Shakespearean actors such as Chris-

Special To The Daily
STRATFORD, Ontario-There is
no question, or at least there
shouldn't be any, that "Mahagon-
ny" is the standout of the Thir-
teenth Stratford Season.
The first North American pro-
duction of the 35-year-old Brecht-
Weill opera eclipses the Shakes-

Festival was started. This year

ing and unpredictable. Similar to
the "Threepenny Opera," the
music is nevertheless distinct and
fresh. Orchestrally, Weill sur-
prises again and again, with such
delights as solo mandolin accom-
paniment and an "American"
tom-tom sound. "Moon of Ala-
bama" and "As You Make Your
Bed, So Must You Lie In It" are
certainly among Weill's finest.
It's no wonder "Mahagonny"
hasn't been seen in the United
States. Everyone from the Moth-
ers for a Moral America to Lyn-
don Johnson (if that's so far to
go) would be offended. Just the
scene in which God visits Mahag-
onny and gets mugged would alone
finish off' the Stateside produc-
tion. And those subversive signs

that's really delightful for Ameri-
cans is the low cost of living.
Rooms (in the tourist homes; not
motels) run about $6 for doubles
and $4 for singles, although
they're getting harder to find on
the spur of the moment.
Restaurant prices are ridicu-
lous: I had a full pound of filet
mignon with all side dishes for
$3.75, and that's a real deluxe
dinner. It's not hard to find a
complete meal for $1.50, or even
less. Menus even have sandwiches
