In NY Talks
Murphy Explains
Position of U.S.
Daily Editorial Director
Special To The Daily
NEW YORK-Fourteen interna-
tionally minded speakers took the
platform of the United Nations
General assembly Hall Sunday
night and alternately praised and
criticized the UN as an agent for
achieving peaceful change.
Addressing some 2,000 persons
at the opening session of the
twenty-second annual New York
Herald Tribune Forum, Robert D.
Murphy, Assistant Secretary of
State for UN Affairs, held that
strong support of the UN "is fun-
damental to our foreign policy"
but pot the only instrumentality
of that policy.
"STRONG popular faith in the
UN does not mean that "We as a
government or people are blindly
committed to some visionary ad-
venture" or that "the United
States had sacrificed sovereign
rights to the UN" Murphy said.
Emphasizing the United
States' attempt to do its best
to fulfill membership obligatiohs
in the UN, the State Depart-
ment representative deplored
the widespread lack of under-
standing which results in impa-
tience with both the UN and
the tactics of the United States
r Delegation.
In answer to the "more action,
less talk" line of criticism directed
at the U.S. delegation, Murphy ex-
plained that U.S. representatives
S"try to act in ways which will be
persuasive to other public opin-
ions as well as our own".
UN General Assembly President
Mme. Vijaya Oakshmi Pandit
opened the four-session forum l
with a plea for acceptance of the
UN by all nations. The 'slight
Indian diplomat outlined "perma-
nence and stability within change,"
as the UN's not yet realized goal.
* * *
"IT IS VITAL to our age that
we do everything in our power to
promote a more thoughtful and
patient evaluation of the difficult
task which confronts the UN,"
Mme. Pandit concluded.
The present need to "buy
time" while the constructive
forces working for peaceful
progress can gain momentum
was stressed in a message pre-
pared by UN Secretary General
Dag Ham arskjQld and read by
Ralph J. bunchi in Hammar-
skjoid's absence.
In spite of its pessimistic ring,
the world's greatest problem-that
of "peaceful co-existence"-has a
.positive implication, the Ham-
marskjold message said. "It gives)
us a chance to work for such'
peaceful change as is needed if we
are to justify the hope for one,
world of peace."
Forum delegates from 200 col-
leges and universities, women's
organizations and business, labor,
religious and educational groups
also heard analysis of specific
problems in areas like Africa, Li-
bya and Korea.
A PANEL discussion of "Public
Opinion and the United Ntations"
drew the sessions' sharpest criti-
cism of the UN from Indonesian
representative Soedjatmoko. "To
many nations, "the young diplo-
mat said, "the cause of the appar-
ent failure of the UN lies not in

its structure but in the insistence
of the major power on subordi-
nating considerations of merit and
justice to the dictates of power
It often seems to Asians that
the UN is operating only in the
space left to it by the Big Pow-
ers, Soedjatmoko held.
"New patterns for Mid-Century
Living," the theme of the forum

United Nations said the U. S. rep-

fly to Panmunjom later this week
for the talks. Dean, special State
Department consultant, will be ac-
companied by a half dozen ad-
visers and will pick up others in
Tokyo and Seoul.
The United States, after con-
sulting its allies in the Korean
War, sent the Communists a note
last week proposing a meeting
at Panmunjom to select a time
and place for the peace confer-
The U. S. note said the Allies
would be ready to discuss the ques-

peace conference "to the extent
consistent with" previous decisions
made-by the United Nations.
In yesterday's note Premier
Chou En-lai of Red China made
clear he believed the question of
neutral nations participating was'
more important than settling the
