Russian Delegates Walk-out
An assassination and three Russian walk-outs sparked the model UN confer
ence on charter amendments which was held Wednesday through Friday.
While a Soviet delegate was speaking, the committee on modification of the veto
was thrown into turmoil by a spectator who leaped to his feet shouting, "Down with
Red Russia!"
Before the delegates could utter another word, a second man arose from the
crowd and confronted the demonstrator with a pistol which was calmly leveled and

Schlesinger, Rogge Debate U.S.
'Collective Resistance7 Policy
Opposing views on who bene
fits by American foreign policy
were , taken inday morning by
Arthur M. bchlesmger, Jr., and
O. John Rogge, who debated that
question at this year's last all-
University convocation.
Schlesinger, Harvard histor
ian, contended that the Am
ericans do have a foreign policy
which he termed a policy of
"collective resistance to aggres
sion through creation of posi
tions of strength." This policy,
he said, benefits the United
.' States, since it is filling vac
' uums, open to Communism
through weaknesses, .with
This policy, according to Schles
inger, arose from a series of spec
ific crises following the war and
includes building economic
strength through UNRA, the
Marshall plan and Point 4; and
military strength through the
Truman doctrine, NATO and
He stated ' that "extraordinary
progress" has been made toward
European unity and that the U.S.
must remember that, particularly
in Asia, military might is no good
unless accompanied by economic
and Dolitical strength. Jtie con
cluded that our present policy is
"wise" and the "best calculated
to conserve world peace."
Rogge, New York attorney, on
the other hand, declared that if
the U.S. has a foreign policy at
all, it has not been made evi
dent. He calk for a positive
program in adction to Schles
inger's "peace through strength."
He declared his opposition to
German rearmament in any case
and to "making a deal with
Franco Spain" and said that
through lack of a positive pro
gram wc have reversed sides.
"We were first allies of Commu
nism against Fascism, now we
are allies of Fascism against
Communism." 1

The charter amendments
conference was broken up into
two committees to study the
modification of the veto and
the powers of the General As
sembly. These committees ironed out
proposals advanced by Australia,
Czechoslovakia, Sweden, Rus
sia, South Africa, the United
States and a joint resolution
sponsored by Denmark, Iceland
and Saudi Arabia.
At the third plenary session
on Saturday morning the final
disposition was made of the
committee reports containing
proposed amendments.
No agreement was found on
any proposals to limit or abolish
the vote in the Security Coun
cil. However, under an amend
ment sponsored by Australia,
South Africa and the U.S., the
veto power of the big five would
be liminated in the amendment
process itself. At present these
five nations must ratify any
amendment before it may be
come effective.
A Czechoslovakian amendment
was adopted whjch gives the
General Assembly the power by
a two-thirds vote to decide
which delegation shall be seated
if two governments claim the
same seat in the UN.
Sweden offered a compro
mise resolution on the subject
of Red China. The Swedes
suggested that the Red Chi
nese be seated in the UN but
that China be eliminated from
the big five. The propposal

Little things occasionally go
wrong in the best organized pro
ductions and plans. One of these
occurred during the Aquauettes
show Friday night
The first number in the show
was supposed to be a snappy,
military drill accompanied by a
lively march. "Anchors Aweigh"
was played for the production,
but the sound man was evidently
more interested in the show than
what he was doing.
The record was played at 33
rpm speed rather than conven
tional 78! The result was 12

PRESIDENT HARRY S. TRUMAN had scarcely unpacked
his sun-tan oil after returning from his recent Florida vacation
when the political mud hit the fan.
First, Attorney-General J. HOWARD McGRATH, not pleased
by the current investigation of corruption in government being
conducted by special clean-up man NEWBOLD MORRIS, refused
to cooperate with Morris. When Morris sent McGrath the finan
cial questionnaire which went out to hundreds of government
employees, McGrath sent it back unexecuted.
When the president returned from Key West, McGrath told
Truman his troubles and apparently threatened to fire Morris.
The verbal fight between McGrath and Truman continued even
at the Washington national airport where the two were to meet
the visiting queen of The Netherlands, Juliana.
Finally McGrath did as he threatened and fired corruption
sleuth Morris. When the president heard that, he promptly fired
McGrath. What will happen next is anybody's guess, but the row
within the administration can hardly help democratic solidarity
in the coming election.
THE PRESIDENT announced at a Jefferson Day dinner in
Washington that he would not be a candidate for president again.
The announcement came as a surprise to the guests and was
greeted by cries of "No! No!"
ADLAI STEVENSON, governor of Illinois and believed to
be President Truman's personal choice for the presidential nom
ination, announced that he was only interested in running for
governor again. It did appear, as one reporter put it, that Steven
son might run at the drop of alraft

Citizens of this Commonwealth nation feared native uprisings
resulting from the prime minister's discriminatory practices to
ward the non-white population of South Africa.

some 50,000 Cape colored voters, the court declared the action unconstitutional.
