PARIS, Saturday, July 14-Supreme Headquarters of the Allied Expedi-
tionary Force, which led the way to victory, passed out of existence at one
minute after midnight this morning with an unblemished record of Allied
General Eisenhower, the Supreme Commander, closed up his command
with an order of the day expressing the hope that the unity achieved in the
war would help inspire "permanent


and lasting peace."

Eisenhower stepped to his new job

British forces reverted to control
of the British War Office, Air Min-

This is what remained to take the

Charter Landed
By Vandenberg
Best Hope for Better
World, Says Senator
By The Associated Press
DETROIT, July 13-The United
Nations Charter "is laden with prom-
ise and hope," Senator Arthur Van-
denberg, Michigan Republican, de-
clared today, and "it deserves a faith-
ful trial."
"The charter," Vandenberg told
the Detroit Economic Club, "is man's
best hope for a better, a safer and
a happier world." The speech, his
first on the charter, was broadcast
over a nation-wide hookup.
The statesman, who helped write
salient features of the charter as an
American representative to the San
Francisco Conference, said that un-
less "mankind's dearest dream" is to
perish, Americans "dare not' fail to
strive" to make the charter work.
Although the politician conceded
that the charter has imperfections
and falls short of the ideal, he did
not minimize the value of the in-
strument as a force for world peace.
He praised it highly.
"There can be no future unless we
make this start," he said. "Even in
the event of unexpected failure, I
should prefer to have been associated
with its hopeful trial than with re-
fusal to permit it to prove its expected
"While I want a powerful army
and an invincible navy to make our
own national defense as impregnable
as possible, pending the time when
mutual arms limitations may be made
dependably effective, I believe that
no nation can henceforth, immunize
itself by its own exclusive action,"
the Senator asserted.
He stressed there would be no
relinquishment of sovereignty, that
the charter "promises justice as a
substitute for force," and that it
provides for adjustments of errors
or injustices in the writing of the
