Federal court says Carter can end Taiwan pact
WASHINGTON (AP)-A federal
appeals court overruled a lower court
yesterday and said President Carter
has the authority to unilaterally ter-
minate the mutual defense treaty bet-
ween the United States and Taiwan.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the
District of Columbia said the issue it
was asked to decide was "solely and
simply . . . whether the president in
these precise circumstances is, on
behalf of the United States, empowered
to terminate the treaty in accordance
with its terms.
"It is our view that he is," the court
The eight-judge panel decided that
the limitations the lower court judge
saw in Carter's authority "have no
foundations in the Constitution."
SEVEN JUDGES voted in favor of
the ruling, while an eighth, Judge
George MacKinnon, dissented in part.
"No prior President has ever claimed
the absolute power to terminate such a
treaty," MacKinnon said.
The suit was brought by Sen. Barry
Goldwater (R-Ariz.) and 23 other
members of Congress after Carter en-
ded the treaty with Taiwan as part of
the process of normalizing relations
with mainland China.
Lawyers for Goldwater said they
would appeal to the Supreme Court next
THE APPELLATE court overturned
the decision of U.S. District Judge
Oliver Gasch, who ruled on Oct. 17 that
Carter had acted improperly in ending
the mutal defense treaty.
Gasch said his reading of the'"Con-
stitution indicated that a treaty could
be ended only if two-thirds of the Senate
or a majority of the House concurred.
Daniel Popeo, an attorney for GoldI-
water, said, "We expect to file with the
Supreme Court Monday morning.. . we
intend to fight this all the way."
He added that the ruling was not
unexpected, saying the appeals court is
"a difficult forum." But he declined to
THE U.S.-TAI WAN treaty is
scheduled to end on Jan. 1.
The appeals court majority said that
if it ruled a treaty could be terminated
by a legislative vote, "we would be
locking the United States into all of its
international obligations, even if the
president and two-thirds of the Senate
minus one firmly believed that the
proper course ... was to terminate a

ce carry "potentially dangerous
obligations" and that the president may
have to take immediate action to ter-
"The creation of a constitutionally
obligatory role in all cases for a two-
thirds consent by the Senate would give
to one-third-plus-one of the Senate the
power to deny the president the

foreign policy in a rational and effec-
THE APPEALS COURT said that the"
Senate's right to ratify treaties by a
two-thirds vote is a power "not lightly
to be expended in instances not set forth
in the Constitution."
The judges also noted that the,
president rather than the Congress
represents the United States in foreign
"WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?"
Psalms 2:1 and Acts 4:25
U.S. steps up pressure on Iran
"I will also forget thy children." Is there not something
wrong with the young people today. Maybe some light can
be thrown on the situation by considering this quotation, for
it Is God Himself speaking.
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because
thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that
thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou has forgotten The
Law of The God, l will also forget thy children." Hosea 4:6.
Weigh these words. It is a terrible message of judgement.
Destroyed on account of "lack of knowledge" or ignorance.
Rejection and ignorance of "The Law of Our God." The
results: they shall be no priest to God, and God will forget
their children, seeing they have forgotten "The Law of Thy
God." - Protestantism gives us the true teaching of God's
Word that every sincere believer is a priest unto his God.
Have we not forgotten "The Law of Our God." "We 'breach
The S abbath' and destroy'T he goods of God." We mock and
scorn His Laws regarding the home, marriage and sex
relations. Our land Is lousy with murderers, and yet quite a
number of our states have decided thatTheAlmighty did not
know what He was talking about when He said:
"Whoso killeth any person, the murderer shall be put to
death - Moreover ye shall take no satisfaction for the life of a
murderer, which guilty of death, but he shall be surely put to
death -So ye shall not pollute the land wherein ye are: for
blood It defileth the land; and the land cannot be cleansed of
the blood that Is shed therein, but by the blood of him that
shed it. Defile not therefore the land which ye shall inhabit,
wherein I dwell" for I The Lord dwell among the children of
Israel." Numbers 35:20-24.
Our land Is also filled with stealing, lying and
coveteousness. If this writer's appraisal is correct even many
of the laws of our nation and states encourage its people to
covet that which in God's sight belongs to another instead of
teaching and urging-them to take heed to one of the very first
laws of God to fallen man to live by "the sweat of his own
brow." We are trying to run overAimighty God Himself. And
in order to make peace with men who deny and blaspheme
The God we claim to serve, we turn and make war on God
himself. SHALL WE HAVE PEACE WITH MAN BY MAKING
WAR ON GOD ALMIGHTY? Was it notBiIlShakespearewho
said: "What fools these mortals be."
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge." "What Is
your vocation, doctor, lawyer, teacher, etc. Say you are a
lawyer if you had spent that same amount of time on your
law books, court cases, decisions, etc. as you have on study-
ing the Law of God and H Is judgements, what kind of lawyer
would you be? If a doctor, what sort of doctor would you be if
you had spent no more time studying the necessary subjects
than you have spent learning of The Creator of the body -
"we are fearfully and wonderfully made" and taking heed to
the injunction and invitation of The Great Physician to
"Learn of Me." Whatever one's vocation may be their success
or failure doubtless depends on their knowledge of the sub-
ject and their ability to make application of same. But fail or
succeed, it is only temporal. But the knowledge of God, or
lack of it, has to do with our Eternal Life, or eternal death.
God says: "Cursed be the man that trusteth in man," and "He
that trusteth in his own heart is a fool."
"Search the scriptures, they testify of Me," said Jesus

WHLE THE U.S. was continuing its
.stated efforts to get the crisis resolved
peacefully through the international
body, administration officials once
again left open the possibility of taking
the matter into its own hands-i.e.
Donald Skadden, associate dean of
the University's Graduate School of
Business Administration and Arthur
Young Distinguished Professor of Ac-
counting, will serve as president of the
American Accounting Association in
Skadden served as president-elect of
the association for the 1978-79 year. The
association, founded 65 years ago, is
concerned primarily with the advan-
cement of accounting education. Ap-
proximately half of its 11,000 members
are from academic institutions, with
the remainder from industry, gover-
nment, and firms of certified public ac-
Zbigniew Brzezinski, the president's
advisor on national security affairs,
took the sterner line to New York in a
speech delivered to a Jewish socialist
group. Brzezinski used that forum to
remind- the ayatollah that Iran is a
vulnerable country geopolitically, and
said that only through friendship with
the United States has it been able to
maintain its independence this long.
Then, in obvious reference to some
ultimate military action, Brzezinski
added "What is happening in Iran
tonight potentially has more con-
sequences for Iran than for the United
THE ADMINISTRATION has hinted
before at the possible use of military
force, President Carter himself remin-
ding a television audience that the U.S.
has "other remedies" available to solve
this crisis if the peaceful means all
collapse. Brzezinski's warning,
however, was the most direct and poin-
ted reference to military force yet in
this four-week old confrontation, since
Brzezinski is the first adminsitration
official to date to refer distinctly to
Iran's vulnerability to attack.
In another front in Washington and
Tehran's escalating war of words, the
State Department yesterday demanded
that all 50 American hostages be seen,

acknowledging that the U.S. can only
account for a few of the hostages.
This most recent demand came
amidst persistent but unproven rumors,
circling through the diplomatic
pipelines here and in Iran that some or
all of the hostages have been moved
from the American embassy compound
to a prison once used by SAVAK, the
secret police force of the deposed Shah
Mohammed Reza Pahlavi.
In another related development in the
crisis that has gripped the ad-
ministration and the nation since
November 4, the International Court of-,s
Justice in the Netherlands announced,
yesterday it will hold hearings Dec. 20;-
on the United States case brought
against the Iranian government.
The U.S. took Iran to court seeking a
court order allowing for the release and
safe return of the American hostages.
While there was no immediate word
from Tehran on this most recent an-
nouncement, the ayatollah and his
government have consistently rejected
mediation by such international bodies
since they see international law as a-
stepchild of the West.
IN THE UNITED Nations, where the'
conflict will be debated by the 15-
member Security Council today, the
United States is known to be moving for
a strongly-worded resolution which
calls the hostage situation a threat to

dicated privately that they are wary of
