North Atlantic Council Begins Ministerial Meeting 

FoUoxcing is a statement made hy Secretary 
Ilerter on his arrival at Paris on December 13, 
together with the text of a communique issued hy 
the North Atlantic Council on December 17 at 
the close of the first pai't of its regular semi- 
annual Ministerial Meeting, lohich was held at 
Paris December 15 to 17. 


Once again the Foreign, Defense, and Finance 
Ministere of the NATO countries will meet here 
in Paris.' On December 18 I will meet President 
Eiseiiliower in Toulon and accompany him to 
Paris for the heads-of-government meeting be- 
ginning the following day. 

At the meeting of the NATO Coiuicil this year 
we will consider the state of our Alliance and of 
our defenses and will discuss the international 
situation, including plans for a summit meeting. 

In considering the international situation, our 
assessment should be a realistic one. The sense 
of crisis appears io have lessened of late. We 
welcome this, but it remains to be seen whether 
the Soviet Union is prepared to negotiate seri- 
ously to reach equitable settlements of major 
issues. It would be a grave error to base our plans 
for the future on a more optimistic appraisal than 
is warranted by the facts. 

The defensive strength of the NATO Alliance 
and its further improvement continues to be of 
fundamental importance. Tlie economic strength 
and material well-being of the NATO member 
countries have grown substantially even wliile 
NATO has made steady progress in building its 
defenses. This fact testifies to the vitality and the

of Dec. 2S, 1959, p. 934. 

energy of the peoples whose security and well- 
being our Alliance serves. I am confident these 
same qualities will also serve our common needs 
in the future. 

With respect to the United States, let me say 
that we have always given our full support to 
NATO. This continues to be our policy. The 
United States will, as it always has done, dis- 
charge its responsibilities in NATO and carry its 
fair share. 


Press release 865 dated December 18 

The North Atlantic Council began its regular 
Ministerial session in Paris on December 15. At 
the opening meeting, which marked the inaugu- 
ration of the permanent headquarters of NATO 
at the Porte Dauphine, statements were made by 
M. Michel Debre, Prime Minister of the French 
Eepublic, and Mr. Halvard Lange, President of 
the Comicil and Norwegian Minister for Foreign 

The Council devoted three days to a thorough 
discussion of the affairs of the Alliance, beginning 
with a review of the international situation. The 
Ministers imanimously reaffirmed their confidence 
in the North Atlantic Alliance, and agreed that 
it will remain indispensable during the coming 
years. They instructed the Permanent Coimcil 
to undertake long-tenn planning, to cover the next 
ten years, on the objectives of the Alliance in the 
political, military, scientific and economic fields, 
and in regard to arms control. 

The CoiuicLl also agreed that various economic 
problems, as they relate to NATO, should form 
the subject of further study in the Permanent 

The Council examined the military situation. 
It took cognizance of the fact that Soviet military 
strength continues to grow. Current NATO de- 

January 4, I960 

fense plans therefore remain valid. In view of 
this, and in the light of the Annual Eeview, the 
Ministers agreed that a determined etiort is re- 
quired to guarantee the necessary strength of the 
Alliance. They expressed confidence that on the 
basis of the progress already achieved and in view 
of favorable economic developments in most 
NATO countries, tliis essential task is certainly 
within the ability of the Alliance as a whole. 

Tiie Council reaffirmed that general and con- 
trolled disarmament remains the goal of the West. 
Every opportunity will be taken to make progress 
in tliis direction. Until this goal is acliieved, how- 
ever, the Alliance cannot afford to neglect the 
measures necessary for its security. 

The Ministei-s had a full discussion on the forth- 

coming negotiations between East and West and 
agreed on the procedures whereby NATO will 
continue to participate in the preparations for 
these negotiations. The Council will resume these 
discussions on December 22, after the meeting of 
Heads of Govermnent, and a second communique 
will then be issued. 

The Council concluded by expressing the hope 
that the negotiations between East and West will 
advance the solution of important problems and 
thus serve the ideals of peace and security which 
the Alliance has always upheld and defended. 

At the invitation of the Turkish Government the 
next Ministerial session of the Council will take 
place in Istanbul in May, 1960. 

Importance of Cultural Ties in Franco-American Alliance 

by Under Secretary Dillon^ 

We in the Department of State applaud the 
outstanding contribution which the Lafayette Fel- 
lowship Foundation is making to the long and 
cherished tradition of Franco- American friend- 
ship and cooperation. Today's pressing need to 
strengthen free-world unity calls for ever-closer 
ties between the American people and the great, 
liberty-loving people of France. The Lafayette 
Foundation, through its scholarship program for 
exceptionally gifted French graduate students, is 
immeasurably enhancing this relationshij). 

Lafayette fellows are offered an opportunity to 
acquire a broad knowledge of the United States 
and of the lives and aspirations of our citizens. 
They are exposed to our uniquely productive eco- 
nomic system. They are eyewitnesses to our po- 
litical and civic activities. They participate in 
our ciillnial affiiii-s and learn to appreciate the 
spiritual and moral values we hold so dear.

Me<lnl Award as a "statesman and diplomat who has

Although this program is only 4 yeare old, I 
am confident that we will soon see the day when 
Lafayette fellows will be numbered among the 
active leaders of France's social, economic, and 
political life. By sending back to France a suc- 
cession of potential leaders who have a full vmder- 
standing of the United States and its people, the 
Foundation is rendering an invaluable service to 
both nations. 

There has never been a time in history when 
there was greater need for better understanding 
between all nations and all peoples. Indeed, mu- 
tual understanding is an imperative of 20th cen- 
tury existence if we are ever to ease the tensions 
which beset today's sorely troubled and sadly 
divided world. The ties which bind France and 
the United States together are a shining example 
of an admirable alliance in which understanding 
goes hand in hand with mutual respect and warm 

These ties have been formed over a period of 
nearly 200 years by ideals commonly held, by 
experiences commonly shared, and by bloodshed 
in a common cause. Thev have been strengthened

French Influence in America 

Frencli inlluenco has been strong in America 
since the early days of tlie exploration and coloni- 
zation of the continent. It is to French explorers, 
such as Jacques Cartier, Samuel de Champlain, 
Robert de La Salle, Louis Joliet, and the French 
missionaries — of whom Pcre Marquette is an out- 
standing example — that we owe the exploration of 
the Great Lakes region and the IMississippi basin. 
The memory of these French explorations lives on 
in ringing place names : Detroit, Des Moines, Vin- 
cemies, Terre Haute, Fond du Lac, and a host of 
others. Pere Marquette alone has given his name 
to a great university, a railway system, a river, two 
counties, and five towns and villages. 

During colonial days another strong current of 
French influence was evident in the successive 
waves of Huguenot immigrants who settled along 
the Eastern seaboard from New England to the 
Carolinas. The Huguenots were mostly artisans 
and tradesmen, and, through their loiowledge and 
skills, they contributed significantly to the build- 
ing of colonial Amei-ica. 

As our American Eevolution developed, our lead- 
ers drew inspiration and encouragement from the 
French philosopliere of the 18th century. In par- 
ticular, the political theories propounded by Mon- 
tesquieu in his remarkable work UEspnt des Lois 
had a profound influence on the framers of the 
American Constitution. The extent of the politi- 
cal, military, and material assistance furnished by 
France to the Revolutionary American Colo- 
nies — in one of the earliest, "foreign aid" pro- 
grams — is too well known to require elaboration 
here. We have a perpetual reminder in the serene 
and lovely Lady of Liberty presented to us by 
France, who marked her 75th anniversary in 
New York Harbor last July. 

A quarter of a centnrj' after our liberty had 
been won with the help of French troops led by 
Lafayette and Rochambeau, there occurred an 
episode which provides a deep insight into the 
character of the great Frenchman whose name is 
proudly borne by tliis foundation. When the Ter- 
ritory of NeAv Orleans — which the French had 
begun to colonize nearly a hundred years before — 
became a part of the Union in 1803, tlie United 

States Congress granted a tract of land to General 
Lafayette. Through an inadvertence, a portion 
of that same tract was later granted to (he Cor- 
poration of New Orleans. Lafayette was assured 
by eminent jurists that ho was in the right and 
was urged to put forth his claim. To wliich that 
gallant soldier replied: 

I cannot consent even to Inquire Into the validity of 
my title. It was gratuitously be.ftowed by Congress, 
and It is for them to say what was given. I cannot for 
a moment think of entering into litigation with any 
public body in the United States. 

On the tract that Lafayette so gracefully relin- 
quished was built the city of New Orleans. To 
this day the citizens of New Orleans take justifi- 
able pride in their French heritage. For the 
French epoch has left behind an indelible imprint 
on their architecture, customs, cuisine, and family 

In recent times French influence in the United 
States has been exercised primarily through art- 
ists, writers, and teachers of both nations. 
Since the early days of this century, when the 
Paris school of painting gained undisputed pri- 
macy, American artists have flocked to that lovely 
city. Many American writers, and particularly 
those of the generation which came to maturity 
between the two world wars, found in Paris the 
intellectual and artistic atmosphere most congen- 
ial to their work. Since the last war the number 
of American students enrolled in French univer- 
sities — more than a thousand annually — has been 
larger than that from any other foreign country. 

The number of French students in this country 
is growing and now averages about 600 each year. 

French continues to be one of the most popular 
foreign languages in American universities and 
colleges. From a study of the language many 
American students are able to move on to a first- 
hand acquaintance with the great classics of 
French literature. The works of French drama- 
tists, from MoliSre and Rostand to Sartre, are pro- 
duced on Broadway and by little theater groups 
across the country. The output of France's mo- 
tion picture studios has always found an apprecia- 
tive audience here, and many French entertainers 
and popular ballads are almost as well known on 
Main Street as they are along the Champs Elysees. 

The French have enriched our American social 
fabric in another significant manner. Tliey have 
brought us a certain grace and joy of living. Our 

January 4, I960 

Puritan and pioneer ancestors had many excellent 
qualities, but urbanity and ofaiety were not con- 
spicuously among them. Thanks in good part to 
Frencli influence over the years, we have a more 
cosmopolitan outlook on life. Certiiinly French 
influence can be found everywhere about us: on 
our restaurant menus, on the dining tables of our 
homes, in our sliops and fashions, our art and 
arcliitecture and interior design, and in our every- 
day conversation and humor. 

Two-Way Cultural Avenue 

From the earliest days of our Franco-American 
friendship the flow of influence and ideas between 
the two countries has been reciprocal. The archi- 
tects of that monumental event of history, the 
French Revolution, owed much to tlie earlier 
American Revolution. In 1789 Thomas Paine 
said, ''Tlie principles of America opened the Bas- 
tille." In recognition of the mfluence of the 
American experiment on the French Revolution, 
Lafayette sent the key of the Bastille to George 
Washington, who accepted it as "a token of the 
victory gained by lilxM-ty." 

After (he revolutionary periods, the lieavy traf- 
fic in words and ideas was maintained. French- 
men who have come to our shores have been eager 
to weigh our qualities and to draw parallels be- 
tween the two democracies. Such brilliant ob- 
servers of tlie American scene as De Tocqueville 
stimulated French interest in the United States. 
More recent literary explorers have been Andre 
Siegfried and Andre Maurois. Jacques Maritain, 
who has lived among us for nearly a quarter of a 
century, lias elocjuently expressed faith in tlie 
United States as "a country entirely turned 
toward the future, not the past." 

Tliis two-way cultural avenue made the novels 
of Fenimore Cooper as familiar 1o tlie French 
turn-of-the-century schoolboy as were the works 
of Dumas to his American contemporary. In our 
own days the plays of Arthur Miller and Tennes- 
see Williams, the novels of Hemingway and 
Faullcner, are accorded a respectful and searching 
attention in France — an attention given to few 
otiicr foreign writers. We reciprocate with our 
iiilerest in such modern French writers as Gide, 
Camus, Rolland, and Mauriac. 

Perhaps one of the most golden pages in this 
liistory of cullural exchange was written during 
France's dark days of I'JiO, when more than a 

hundred French artists, professors, and scholars 
came to this country, where they were able to keep 
the vitality of French thought and culture alive 
and free. Many accepted teaching and research 
assignments at leading American imiversities. 
Others formed, at the New School for Social Re- 
search in this city, the nucleus of what has since 
become the French University in New York. 

U.S. Aware of France's Resurgent Strength 

In discussing Franco-^Vmerican cultural ties I 
cannot help recalling that in the past certain of 
our French friends have taken us to task for what 
they believed, rightly or wrongly, was our pre- 
occupation with the material aspects of civiliza- 
tion and the day-to-day practicalities of interna- 
tional relations. Today, as I learned during my 
all-too-brief visit to Paris,^ some of these same 
friends feel that we are being overly sentimental 
aliout their country. They fear that concentra- 
tion on past glories may be causing us to overlook 
the realities of the new France. 

I can assure our friends that their concern is un- 
warranted. We are well aware of France's re- 
surgent strength. Over the past 10 years French 
industrial production has grown at a prodigious 
rate. In the last 5 years alone industrial output 
has increased by nearly 50 percent. 

At a time when the Soviet Union is talking of 
the supposed "decadence" of the Western democ- 
racies and is seeking to project its own image to 
the newly developing coimtries as the ideal blue- 
print for rapid industrial growth, it is important 
that France's remarkable recovery has proceeded 
at a pace at least equaling that of the Soviet 
Union and that it has been achieved within the 
framework of a society erected on the ideals of 
individual liberty and human dignity. This is 
eloquent testimony that fi'eedom, not tyranny, is 
the M-ave of the future. 

France is the oldest ally of the United States. 
This alliance has survived nearly two centuries of 
wai's and revolutions and is today one of the 
foundations of the foreign policies of both our 
countries. Today our alliance has a new form, 
that of the Atlantic Pact, in which — for the first 
time during peacetime— France and the United

U.S. Protests to Czechoslovakia 
on Anti-American Exiiibit 

Press release 855 dated December 15 

The U.S. Embassy at Prague delivered the fol- 
lowing note to the Czechoslovak Government 
on Decemherl'2. 

The Government of the United Stat&s is sur- 
prised to learn of an exhibit displayed at the 
Klement Gottwald Museum in Pragize. This ex- 
hibit contains a number of items highly offensive 
to the United States Government since they are 
false in content and markedly anti- American in 

character. The exhibit includes, for example, a 
photograph of twelve severeil human heads 
lying on the ground, with a caption : "American 
head hunters and their helpers. The methods of 
colonialists do not change." Another part of the 
display refei-s to General MacArthur as a "mass 

An exhibit of this character could not be dis- 
played without the sanction of Czechoslovak au- 
thorities. Such an exhibit is clearly inconsistent 
with repeated statements by the Czechoslovak 
Government of its desire to improve Czechoslovak- 
United States relations and st>ems deliljerately 
calculated to worsen rather than ease the inter- 
national atmosphere. 

U.S. Replies to Soviet Protest 

on German Draft Radio Legislation 

Folloioing is an exchange of correspondence be- 
tween the United States and the U.S.S.R. conceiv- 
ing Gei^man draft J-egisla.tion providing for the 
establishment of a central radio network loith 
headquarters in West Berlin. 


The Government of the United States received 
the Soviet Government's note of November 11, 1959 
with some surprise, for it appears to have been 
prompted by certain misapprehensions about 
those procedures and safeguards which have long 
been in effect regarding the application of Fed- 
eral German legislation and the operation of Fed- 
eral German agencies in Berlin. The importance 
which the United States, as one of the occupying 
powers, attaches to the maintenance of the special 
status of Berlin has been dealt with in numerous 
commmiications to the Soviet Union. 

The Government of the United States wishes 
to reaffii-m the principle of four power responsi- 
bility for Greater Berlin and notes that the 
desire of the Soviet Government to avoid interfer- 
ence with Berlin's special status is reflected in the 
reference note. 

In view of the experience of the past ten years, it

seems superfluous to remind the Soviet Govern- 
ment of the arrangements wMch the occupation 
authorities have long kept in force to insure that 
the relationships of the German Federal Eepublic 
and Berlm are compatible with the special status 
of the city. The Government of the United States 
is not aware that any proposal raised to date for 
the establislmient of a Deutsclilandfunk contains 
features which are incompatible with the special 
status of Berlin. 

In view of the foregoing, the Government of 
the United States believes that the considerations 
expressed by the Soviet Union in its note are not 


Unofficial translation 

The Government of the Union of Soviet Socialist Re- 
publics considers it necessary to draw the attention of the 
Government of the United States of America to the fol- 
lowing question : 

On 30 September the Government of tlie FRG [Federal 
Republic of Germany] approved and sent to the Bundestag 
for its consideration draft legislation on radio broad- 
casting which provided for the establishment in West 
Berlin of the West German radio station "Deutschland- 
Funk". According to the draft legislation the radio sta- 
tion would be run by representatives of the FRG and of 
the Laender. 

This decision of the Government of the ^RG is illegal 
because it is incompatible with the existing statute of 
West Berlin. As is generally known — and was confirmed 
by the participants of the Geneva Conference of Foreign 
Ministers — West Berlin has never been a part, and is not 
now a part, of the state territory of the FRG, cannot be 
governed by organs of the Federal Government, nor does 
the jurisdiction of FRG authorities extend to it. 

It must be noted that this is not the first time the Gov- 
ernment of the FRG has attempted illegal interference in 
the internal affairs of West Berlin. The Soviet Govern- 
ment has already called the attention of the Government 
of the USA to this fact, particularly in connection with 
the holding of elections in West Berlin for president of 
the FRG. Recently the authorities of the FRG again 
selected West Berlin as a place for holding elections, for 
purposes of show— this time for president of the West 
German Bundosrat. 

The creation of the radio station in West Berlin now 
being undertaken by the Government of the FRG cannot 
be looked upon as other than an attempt to intensify sub- 
versive activity and hostile propaganda from the territory 

' Handed to American Ambassador Llewellyn E. Thomp- 
Bon at Moscow by Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister V. S. 

of West Berlin, which testifies to its lack of desire to 
take into consideration the readiness expressed by par- 
ticipants of the Geneva Conference to resolve the ques- 
tion of not permitting such activity. 

The plan for the creation of a West German radio sta- 
tion in West Berlin, in the center of another state, clearly 
has as its purpose the intensification of hostile activity 
against the German Democratic Republic. The Soviet 
Government considers the aforementioned activities of 
the Government of the FRG as a new provocation which 
is calculated to make the atmosphere in Berlin and all 
of Germany more tense and to fan the flames of the "cold 
war" in the center of Europe. The activities of the Gov- 
ernment of the FRG cannot be considered as anything 
but a premeditated attempt to interfere with the success- 
ful conclusion of forthcoming negotiations on the Berlin 
question at a time when more favorable foundations for 
the attainment of an agreement on West Berlin have been 
created as a result of conversations between the Chair- 
man of the USSR Council of Ministers N. S. Khrushchev 
and the President of the USA D. Eisenhower. 

In connection with the foregoing the Soviet Govern- 
ment expects that the Government of the USA — which 
has repeatedly declared that it, together with the Gov- 
ernments of Great Britain and France, bears responsibil- 
ity for the situation in West Berlin — will take the neces- 
sary measures to preclude the possibility of the authorities 
of the FRG conducting such illegal activities with respect 
to West Berlin. 

Similar notes are also being sent by the Soviet Gov- 
ernment to the Governments of Great Britain and France.

New Nonimmigrant Visa Regulations 

hy Hallie Mae Pryor 

The Department of State announced recently 
that it had issued new regulations designed to 
speed the issuance of visas to aliens who want to 
visit the United States.* The regulations, with a 
delayed effective date of January 1, 1960, were 
published in the Federal Register of August 18, 
1959,= thus giving more than 4 months' advance 
notice to those interested persons who wished to 
comment or offer suggestions on the new provi- 
sions. Conmients were also specifically invited 
from the Federal Bar Association, the American 
Bar Association, and the Association of Immigra- 
tion and Nationality Lawyers. 

The first general regulations governing the is- 
suance and refusal of visas were issued by the 
Visa Office on June 13, 1946, and became effective 
September 10, 1946. These regulations were pub- 
lished pursuant to section (3) (A) of the Adminis- 
trative Procedures Act of June 11, 1946, which 
required every agency to separately state and cur- 
rently publish in the Federal Register substantive 
rules adopted as authorized by law. Published 
as part 61 of title 22, these regulations were com- 
prehensive in nature and laid down the basic pat- 
tern wliich has since been followed in the issuance 
of all visa regulations. With minor amendments 
and a change in 1948 in the part number to 42, 
they remaine<l in effect until the regulations issued 
pursuant to the Immigration and Nationality Act 
were published on December 19, 1952.

the provisions of section 4 of the act requiring 
advance notice of proposed rulemaking, the Visa

Office does publish advance notice of such amend- 
ments whenever there appears to be sufficient pub- 
lic interest. Such was the case of an amendment 
requiring certain additional information to be 
submitted in connection with applications for 
crew-list visas. 

Furthermore, visa regulations contain a consid- 
erable amount of interpretive material. For ex- 
ample, much of the material contained in section 
41.91(a) (9), (10), and (12) was formerly con- 
tained in administrative instructions but has now 
been incorporated into the regulations. Sections 
41.25 (b) and (c), 41.40(b), 41.55(c), and 41.91 
(a) (28) also contain intei-pretations. Tliis ma- 
terial is included in the regulations to keep the 
public informed of the statutory and regulatory 
constructions of the Department, since there are 
no published decisions on visa matters and very 
few visa questions find their way into the courts. 
The Visa Office Bulletin also serves to keep the 
public informed with regard to interpretations of 
the immigration laws made by the Department.' 

Simplification of Procedures for Issuing Visas 

During the last 5 years remarkable progress has 
been made in the simplification and liberalization 
of the procedures governing the issuance of non- 
immigrant visas. On March 30, 1954, in his mes- 
sage to Congress on the foreign economic policy 

• Mrs. Pryor is chief of the Regvlations 
Branch of the Visa O^ce, Department of 
State. This article is based on an address 
which she made before the Federal Bar As- 
sociution at Washington, D.C, on November 

January 4, 1960 

of the United Stat«s, the President stressed the 
cultural and economic importance of mternational 
travel and stated : * 

Meanwhile, in the executive branch, I shall instruct 
the appropriate agencies and departments, at home and 
abroad, to consider how they can facilitate international 
travel Thev will be asked to take action to simplify 
governmentai procedures relating to customs, visas, pass- 
ports, exchange or monetary restrictions and other regu- 
lations that someUmes harass the traveler. 

A directive was subsequently issued by the 
President to the Departments of State, Conunerce, 
Justice, and the Treasuiy on May 26, 1954, re- 
questinjr that the action indicated in the message 
be taken. In complying with the President's di- 
rective the Department has initiated a systematic 
program of expediting the documentation of bona 
fide noniimnigrants consistent with the immigra- 
tion laws and regulations, particularly those pro- 
visions relating to the security of the United 

The first and perhaps the most significant 
change was a regulatoiy amendment published 
on June 30, 1955, wliich permitted all bona fide 
nonimmigrants to be issued nonimmigrant visas 
and to have their names entered or retained on a 
quota or subquota waiting list with the exception 
of (1) exchange visitors, (2) aliens who willfully 
violated tlieir nonimmigrant status while in the 
United States, and (3) aliens who had been de- 
ported from the United States and had not been 
granted permission by tlie Attorney General to 
reapply following deportation. Under the regu- 
lation us amende<l a consular oiRcer will issue a 
nonimmigrant visa to an alien registered on a 
q)iot a registration list if he is satisfied that for the 
purpose of the visit presently contemplated the 
alien is a bona fide nonimmigi-ant ; that is, he can 
and will depart from the United States upon the 
conclusion of his tcmporarj' stay in this country. 
It was thus recognized that an alien might qualify 
as a nonimmigrant for the purpose of making one 
or more trips to the United States even though 
he might have an eventual intention of immigrat- 
ing to f liis country. The regulations provide that 
the names of aliens who violate their nonimmi- 
grant status in the Unite<l States will be removed 
from the registration list and may not be rein- 
stated under their original priority. 
Sinuiltaiicously with tlio publication of tliis reg- 

' HUI.I.ETIN of Apr. n, 15)54, p. 602. 

idation the period of maximum validity of non- i 
immigrant visas was extended from 24 to 48 I 
months in cases of aliens who are nationals or 
stateless residents of foreign countries whose gov- 
ernments issue visas to U.S. nationals in a similar 
class valid for an equivalent period or whose gov- 
ernments do not require visas of U.S. nationals in 
a similar class visiting that country. Sections 221 
(c) and 281 of the act require that, insofar as prac- 
ticable, the validity of nonimmigrant ^Hsas and 
the fees charged therefor shall be governed by 
reciprocity. Under the statute visa requirements 
may be waived on a reciprocal basis only for na- 
tionals of foreign contiguous territory or adjacent 
islands so that the United States cannot recipro- 
cate fully if a foreign country does not require 
\nsas of U.S. nationals proceeding to that country. 
The Department can, however, issue to nationals 
of such countries nonimmigrant visas valid for 4 
years and an unlimited number of applications for 
admission without fee. The regulations published 
on June 30, 1955, also provided that nonimmigrant 
visas could be revalidated any number of times 
without a foniial application up to a period of 
validity not extending more than 4 years from the 
date of original issuance. 

Following publication of these regulations, the 
Department made representations to the govern- 
ments of foreign countries in an efi'ort to obtain a 
liberalization of their treatment of American citi- 
zens entermg those countries as nonimmigrants 
with respect to the validity of nonimmigrant doc- 
umentation and the visa fees charged. As a result 
of this effort there are now 65 countries which 
either issue 4-year nonimmigrant visas to U.S. 
citizens free of charge or do not require visas at 
all of U.S. citizens -^-isiting those countries, and 
the United States in turn issues 48-month no-fee 
visas to nationals of these coimtries. 

Combined Business and Pleasure Visa 

Early in 1956 the Department authorized con- 
sular officers to issue a combined B-1 and B-2 visa 
to aliens who might wish to make several entries 
into the United States, some entries for business 
and some for pleasure. If the countiy of which an 
applicant for this type of visa is a national charges 
a fee for either a b\isiness or pleasure visa, the 
consular officer must charge an equal fee. The De- 
partment also provided at that time that a visa 
valid for two applications for admission might

be issued to an alien who intended to make more 
than one entry into tlie United States in the coui-se 
of a single journey regardless of the practice of 
the applicant's country in documenting!: American 
citizens. It was felt that, in view of the i-eciproc- 
ity reijuirements of the law, not more than two 
entries could be permitt«i in such a case, but it 
W!us thoujxht that Conirress certainly intended that 
an alien who wanted to make a visit to the United 
States and proceed briefly to Canada, Mexico, or 
some other nearby country and then return to his 
homeland thi-ough the United States should l)e 
pemiitted to do so without tlie necessity of apply- 
ing for a new visa in a country in which he has 
no ties. 

Prior to 1957 the law required tliat all nonimmi- 
^ants, except certain foreigii srovernment and 
international organization officials, be finger- 
printed in connection with their visa applications. 
As a result of strong recommendations by the 
President and the Department, the Congress pro- 
^'ided in sex"tion 8 of the act of September 11, 
1957, that the Secretary of State and the Attorney 
General should have authority to waive finger- 
printing of foreign nationals in nonimmigrant 
visa cases on a reciprocal basis. Although at the 
time of the enactment of this legislation several 
foreign countries fingerprinted U.S. citizens enter- 
ing those countries as nonimmigi-ants, these 
requirements were eliminated as a result of repre- 
sentations made by our embassies; and at the 
present time we do not fingerprint nonimmigrant 
visa applicants of any nationality. Thus the 
reciprocal statutory pro\asions relating to the 
validity of nonimmigrant \asas, the fees charged 
for visa issuance, and fingerprinting of nonimmi- 
grants have not only facilitated travel to the 
United States of alien nonimmigi-ants but have 
also enabled the Department to obtain concessions 
for U.S. citizens traveling abroad which have 
freed such travel from certain fairly serious 

During these years the Department also under- 
took to standardize noninunigrant visa procedures. 
A standardized preliminary nonimmigrant ques- 
tionnaire was developed for use in cases in which 
there is question as to the bona fide nonimmigi'ant 
status or the eligibility of a nonimmigrant visa 
applicant to receive a visa. The form is also used 
in cases in which an alien resides at a considerable 
distance from the considar office and it is therefore 

necessary to conduct the preliminary processing 
of the cnse by mail. The odicial noninunigrant 
visa application form was revised and siniplilied 
and now consists of a three-by-five card designed 
for use as an index card by the consular office. It 
requires completion of api)roximaleIy 10 items of 
infonnation, most of which are required by stat- 
ute, and is completed in single copy only. 

Principal Changes in tiie Regulations 

The Department has attempted, in the new non- 
immigrant visa regulations which will become 
effective on January 1, 1960, not only to stream- 
line the processing of nonimmigrant visa applica- 
tions but to make as easily accessible and as clear 
and unambiguous as possible the information 
which consular officers must have in order to exer- 
cise the visa function properly. Significant 
changes made in the new regulations are listed in 
Visa Office Bulletin No. 45. 

One of the important editorial changes in the 
new regulations is the avoidance of all repetitions 
of the statute. In earlier regulations certain pro- 
visions of the law were included without any 
distinction being made between statutory and reg- 
ulatory requirements. For example, with regard 
to students, the regulations formerly provided in 
part that an applicant for a student visa must 
establish that (1) he has a residence in a foreign 
country which he has no intention of abandoning, 
(2) he is a bona fide student qualified to pursue 
and is seeking to enter the United States tem- 
porarily and solely for the purpose of pursuing a 
full course of study as prescribed by the institu- 
tion of learning to which he is destined, and (3) 
he will attend and has been accepted by an insti- 
tution of learning approved by the Attorney Gen- 
eral as evidenced by the presentation of a Form 
1-20. The first requirement is statutory, the sec- 
ond is in part statutory and in part regulatory, 
the third regulatory; but there was no indication 
to this effect in the regulations themselves. Now 
the regulations say "an alien shall be classifiable 
as a nonimmigrant student if he establishes to the 
satisfaction of the consular officer that he qualifies 
under the provisions of section 101(a) (15) (F) of 
the Act and that'''— and then follow on with the 
regidatory requirements which implement the 

Experience demonstrated that those using the 
earlier regulations, knowing that statutory pro- 

January 4, J 960 


visions -were included in the regulations, might 
have felt that they could be governed by the regu- 
lations alone and need not refer to the statute. 
Since all applicable provisions of the law could 
not be put in the regulations, important statutory 
requirements might be overlooked. Now it is clear 
from the regulations themselves that the law must 
first be consulted and then the regulations. Con- 
sular officers have a complete collection of all 
statutes, treaties. Presidential proclamations, and 
Executive orders bearing upon immigration. 

Other editorial changes include the expansion 
of the section on definitions, which now contains 
all definitions of terms which are used in more 
than one section of the regulations and an in- 
creased use of cross references. 

The regulations are organized so that they fol- 
low as closely as possible the sequence in which a 
visa application is normally processed. Wlien an 
individual makes application the consular officer 
must first determine whether he is a person to 
whom a visa can be issued and whether a visa is 
necessary. Therefore, the first sections deal with 
the documentation of nationals, claimant na- 
tionals, and former nationals of the United States, 
and the waivers of passport and visa require- 
ments. Next, the consular officer wants to know 
whetlier the alien is a nonimmigrant and, if so, 
what classification is appropriate. So the classifi- 
cation sections follow. Sections dealing with the 
ineligible classes and the provisions under which, 
in exceptional cases, visas may be issued to aliens 
falling within certain of these classes, the types of 
visas which may be issued, whether diplomatic, 
official, or regular, the procedure to be followed by 
the alien in applying for his visa, and the pro- 
cedure for issuing or refusing the visa or revoking 
a previously issued visa follow in logical sequence. 

Other Innovations 

Tlio nonimmigrant regulations did not previ- 
ously contain information on ineligible classes. 
Tliese provisions were contained in the immigrant 
regulations and were made part of tlie noninmii- 
grant regulations by cross-reference only. Now 
there is a complete discussion of tlie ineligible 
classes in this part, and all of the exceptions for 
nonimmigrants are carefully pointed out in this 
section of the new regulations. 

Another innovation is the inclusion of sections 
41.10U, 41.102, and 41.104 on the types of non- 

immigrant visas. Formerly thei'e was a separate 
part, part 40, dealing with diplomatic visas only, 
whicli gave rise to a number of misconceptions. 
Many persons thought that a diplomatic visa 
could be issued only to an alien classifiable as a 
foreign goverimaent official, that is, one coming 
to the United States on business for his govern- 
ment, or to an official of an international organ- 
ization coming on business of the organization. 
However, this is not the case. Diplomatic and 
official visas are visas of courtesy which entitle 
the applicant to certain privileges in connection 
with his visa application, such as exemption from 
the requirement of personal appearance, subinis- 
sion of a photograph, and, on a reciprocal basis, 
from payment of visa fees. By comity the bearer 
of a diplomatic or official visa is usually accorded 
preferential treatment at ports of entry. 

The issuance of this type of visa has, however, 
nothing to do with the granting of diplomatic 
privileges and immunities to persons who are 
acting in a representative caj^acity for foreign 
governments or inteniational organizations. 
Diplomatic and official visas may be issued to 
persons falling within the categories listed in 
sections 41.102 and 41.104 even though they may 
be entering as students or on pereonal business 
or pleasure, or as exchange visitors. Such per- 
sons would be issued a diplomatic or official F 
visa if coming as students, diplomatic or official 
B visas if coming on business or pleasure, or 
diplomatic exchange-visitor visas if entering as 
participants in a designated exchange-Ansitor 

Oath Requirement Eliminated 

The requirement that an oath be administered 
in connection with an application for a nonimmi- 
grant visa has been eliminated. "Wliile the elimi- 
nation of the oath simplifies to a certain extent 
the visa-issuing process, it does not in any way 
represent a relaxation of the requirements to be 
met by visa applicants. The preliminary non- 
immigrant visa application form lists the classes 
of aliens who are barred from permanent admis- 
sion into this coimtry. These classes include 
aliens who seek to procure or have sought to pro- 
cure, or have procured, a visa or other documenta- 
tion for enti-y into the United States by fraud 
or by willful misrepresentation of a material fact. 

The nonimmigrant visa application form is 

Deparfmenf of Sfafe Bulletin 

now revised to substitute the following language 
for the former jurat : 

I declare under the penalties prescribed by law tbat 
the iuforuintion eontaiued in this aiiplication, inc-ludinK 
any statements made a part thereof, has been examined 
by me and is true, correct and complete to the best of 
my knowle<lge and belief and that 18 USC 1()01 has 
been explained to me." 

It is believed that i-equiring a visa applicant to 
sigit the foregoing statement and explaining the 
penalty provisions of the law will afford adequate 
safeguards against the making of false statements 
in nonimmigrant visa applications. Experience 
has demonstratetl that persons who are attempt- 
ing to effect a fraudulent entry into the United 
States have little hesitancy in swearing to state- 
ments wliich are not true. On the other hand, 
many sincere and conscientious persons are of- 
fended by the requirement that they take an oath 
to the truth of the statements contained in their 
visa applications, particularly in view of the fact 
that foreign countries generally do not require an 
oath of American citizens or others desiring to 
proceed temporarily to those countries. "VVliile the 
oath has been eliminated in connection with non- 
immigrant visa applications, the Department is 
continuing to emphasize the importance and 
dignity of the oath in connection with immigrant 
visa applications. 

Revalidation and Transfer of Visas 

The provisions of 41.125 and 41.126 relating to 
the revalidation and transfer of visas are of con- 
siderable interest to anyone concerned with the 
problems of aliens who enter the United States 
as nonimmigrants for fairly extended periods of 
time, such as students and exchange visitors, and 
who desire to make trips to nearby countries and 
return. Tliere are still some coimtries which issue 
single-entry visas valid for only a limited period 
of time to American citizens proceeding to those 
coimtries as students or for other cultural pur- 

' 18 USC 1001 reads as follows : 

"Whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of any 
department or agency of the United States knowingly 
and willfully falsifies, conceals or covers up by any 
trick, scheme, or device a material fact, or makes any 
false, fictitious or fraudulent statements or representa- 
tions, or makes or uses any false writing or document 
knowing the same to contain any false, fictitious or 
fraudulent statement or entry, shall be fined not more than 
$10,000 or imprisoned not more than five years, or both." 

poses. We must, therefore, reciprocate with the 
issuance of visas simihu-ly limited. Interestingly 
enough, these countries are, in many instances, 
ones which send a large contingent of students and 
exchangees to the United States; for example, 
Brazil, Ecuador, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Peru, and 
the United Arab Republic. 

Canada, Mexico, and other nearby countries 
will not admit an alien who is in the United States 
in a nonimmigrant status unless that alien has 
in his possession a document valid for reentry into 
the United States. An alien who has a single- 
entry visa, or whose visa has expired, or whose 
passport has expired and must be surrendered to 
the appix)piiate authorities of his own govern- 
ment for issuance of a new pjussport is not in a 
position to meet this requirement. Under prior 
regulations the visa could not be revalidated or 
transferred imless the alien was abroad and 
within the jurisdiction of the consular office to 
which he applied for a revalidation or transfer of 
his visa. 

Under the new regulations consular officers may 
in their discretion waive the personal appearance 
of an applicant for revalidation or transfer of a 
nonimmigrant visa and the alien need not be 
within the consular district at the time of such 
application. Therefore an alien in the United 
States with a nonimmigrant visa limited by reci- 
procity may mail his passport containing the 
visa — or a new passport with a statement from the 
consular authorities of his own government to the 
effect that liis passport containing a valid U.S. 
visa has been taken up by those authorities and 
replaced with a new passport — to the consular 
office which issued his original visa and request a 
revalidation or transfer. If the consular officer 
is satisfied that the alien is maintaining nonimmi- 
grant status in the United States and is otherwise 
qualified, he may revalidate or transfer the visa 
and return it by mail to the alien in the United 
States. It is beHeved that this procedure will 
prove to be a satisfactory solution to what has 
previously constituted an insuperable obstacle to 
the travel of many foreign students and exchange 
visitors to nearby countries. 

Review of Visa Refusals 

Applicants for visas are afforded ample protec- 
tion under the new regulations against arbitrary 
or mijustified refusal. Tlie provisions of section 

January 4, I960 


41.130(c) continue a procedure which has been the 
regular practice of the Department but wliich has 
never been stated so fully in regulations. The De- 
partment has in the pjiat, at the request of an in- 
terested person, called upon consular officers to 
submit reports in cases in which there is any indi- 
cation tiiat a \'isa may have been refused errone- 
ously. The Department may not, of course, direct 
a consular officer to issue a visa in any case, but it 
can give the consular officer the benefit of its ad- 
visory opinion, and, if an error in interpretation 
of law has been made, the Department's ruling is 

Section 41.90 provides that a visa is to be re- 
fused only upon a ground specifically set out in 
the law or regulations issued thereunder and fur- 
ther provides that consideration is to be given to 
any evidence submitted indicating that the gromid 
for a prior refusal of a nonimmigrant visa may no 
longer exist. Thus there is no room for arbitrary 
visa refusals or for the exercise of whim or fancy. 

Tlie provisions of section 41.130(b), althougli 
reflecting longstanding practice, have now for the 
fii-st time l)een put in regulatory form. Under 
this section the Department or the princijial con- 
sular officer at a post may request review of a case 
and final action by a consular officer other than 
the one who originally considered the application. 

Other protections afforded to visa applicants in 
the new regidations are contained in sections 41.91 
(c)(2) and 41.111(a). 

Under the provisions of section 221(g) (2) of 
the act a visa nuist lie refused (1) if the alien's 
application fails to comply with the provisions of 
the act; that is, if the applicant fails to furnish 
the information required to be included in the 
application by the act or regulations; (2) if the 
application contains a false or incorrect statement 
wliicli does not constitute a ground of ineligibility 
under section 212(a)(9) or (1!)) of the act; (3) 
if the application is not supported by the docu- 
ments required by the act or i-egulations; (4) if 
the applicant refuses to be fingerprinted when 
fingerprinting is required; or (.5) if the applica- 
tion otherwise fails to meet the specific require- 
ments of the act for reasons for which the 
applicant is responsible. 

Section 41.91(c)(2) points out that these 
grounds of refusal do not constitute a bar to the 
reconsideration of the application upon compli- 


ance with statutory or regulatory requirements 
or to the consideration of a subsequent applica- 
tion submitted by the same applicant. Section 
41.111 (a) , which gives the consular officer author- 
ity to require such documents as he may consider 
necessary to establish the alien's eligibility to re- 
ceive a nonimmigrant visa, also provides that all 
documents submitted and any other evidence 
adduced by tlie alien is to be given consideration 
by the consular officer, including briefs submitted 
by attorneys or other representatives. The latter 
provision was inserted at the specific request of 
an attorney who felt that sufficient attention had 
not been given to arguments wliich he had sub- 
mitted in behalf of a client. Consular officers 
must, of couree, be governed by what they con- 
sider to be the applicant's intention as expressed 
in his own statements and actions, but they will 
give consideration to supporting statements made 
by attorneys or other representatives of the visa 

In the new regulations effective January 1 the 
Department of State has evidenced its interest not 
only in expediting and facilitating nonimmi- 
grant travel to the United States but in insuring 
that evei-y applicant who is legally eligible to 
receive a nonimmigrant visa will receive that visa. 
The Foreign Service officers who represent the 
United States abroad are well equipped to cai-ry 
out these objectives. They not only are trained 
in the basic economic and political structure of 
the country to which they are assigned but also I 
are thoroughly acquainted with the customs and 
characteristics of tlie people with whom they are 
dealing. Experience with nationals of many 
foreign countries enables Foreign Service officers 
to develop an understanding of these people which 
is of invaluable assistance in making the deter- 
minations required in the issuance of nonimmi- 
grant visas. Through the Foreign Service 
Institute Visa Training Coui*se and the Corre- 
spondence Course in visa work they are constantly 
improving their knowledge and understanding 
of the immigration laws and regulations. Fur- 
ther, the Visa Office has adopted a systematic plan 
for continuing review and improvement of the 
regulations themselves and the instructions dis- 
tributed to the field for the guidance of consular 
officers in the administration of the immigration

U.N. Agrees To Take No Decision 
on Hungarian Credentials 

Folloioing are two statements made by Henry 
Cabot Lodge, UjS. Representative to the General 
Assembly, on the credentials of the Hungarian 
delegation to the United Nations. 


U.S. delegation press release 3339 

Mr. Chairman, since the 1956 revolution of tlie 
Hungarian people every General Assembly ses- 
sion has refused to accept the credentials submit- 
ted by representatives of the present regime in 
Hungar}'. By taking no decision on their cre- 
dentials, the General Assembly has placed the 
Hungarian representatives in a provisional status. 
They are thus on notice that the Assembly in- 
tends to continue to watch the situation m Hun- 
gaiy closely. 

Since the present regime continues its defiance 
of all efforts of the United Nations designed to 
bring about an amelioration of conditions in 
Hungary, the United States believes that this 
Assembly also should refuse to accept the creden- 
tials of the Hungarian delegation. 

I therefore move, Mr. Chairman, that this com- 
mittee take no action on the credentials submitted 
on behalf of the representatives of Hungary. 

The United States believes that the Soviet 
Union and the present Hungarian regime give us 
no alternative but to adhere to this procedure. 
For that reason, Mr. Chairman, the United States 
moves that the Credentials Committee take no 
decision on the credentials of the Hungarian 


U.S. delegation press release 3343 

The United States supports the report of the 
Credentials Committee.^ This committee has 
again recommended tliat the General Assembly 

take no decision on the credentials submitted on 
behalf of the Hungarian delegat ion. 

Tins reconimeiulatioii goes back to the 1956 
revolution, when the firet and second emergency 
special sessions of the General Assembly decided 
to place the representatives of the present Hun- 
garian authorities in a provisional status by tak- 
ing no decision on their credentials. In view of 
the continuing occupation of Hungary by foreign 
armed forces and the unremitting repression of 
the Hungarian people, all subsequent sessions of 
the General Assembly have likewise refused to ac- 
cept the credentials of the Hungarian delegation. 

Last year the General Assembly again con- 
demned the defiance of United Nations resolu- 
tions on Hungary and declared that it would con- 
tinue to be seized of the situation in Hungary.'' 
Sir Leslie Mmiro was appointed as the United 
Nations Special Representative for the purpose 
of reporting on the implementation of the Gen-

In the course of the past year, no evidence has been 
forthcoming of any basic change in the Hungarian 
situation. . . . 

The Soviet Union is continuing its armed inter- 
vention in Hungary. The present Hungarian au- 
thorities are still persecuting the participants in 
the 1956 national uprising. The Soviet Union 
and the Hungarian authorities continue to defy 
the resolutions of the General Assembly. 

In the light of these facts the Assembly has 
just voted to renew Sir Leslie Miuiro's mandate.* 

The United States believes that in the light of 
these facts the General Assembly is now obliged 
to accept the recommendation of the Credentials 
Committee and, in doing so, to refuse to accept 
the credentials of the Hungarian delegation.*

U.N. Reaffirms Principles on Unification of Korea 

Statement hy Walter S. Rohertson 

U.S. Representative to the General Assembly ' 

Once again, as for 12 years past, this committee 
holds in its hands one of the most solemn respon- 
sibilities ever entnisted to the United Nations, the 
hope of unity, freedom, and a just peace for the 
31 million people of Korea, 

This is a stubborn problem. The Korean people, 
now as always, ardently desire that their country 
should be restored to its historic vmity and inde- 
pendence. Year after year the United Nations, 
by large and repeated majorities, has expressed 
the same unwavering desire on the part of the 
community of nations. Yet, through .3 tragic 
years of Communist aggression and war and then 
through 6 years of fruitless negotiation, the prob- 
lem has remained. 

The root of the problem is simple. The Com- 
munist authorities who have fastened an alien 
tyranny on north Korea refuse to relax their grip 
and refuse to consider unification of tlie country 
except on conditions which would once again lay 
all of Korea open to Communist military attack. 
In pursuit of this policy they even deny the United 
Nations' right to concern itself with tliis matter. 

We may be forgiven for wondering what the 
authoi-s of this injustice are thinking. Perhaps 
they are hoping that the free nations will forget 
about Korea. Perhaps they hope, by the mere 
passage of time, the outlines of this problem will 
become fuzzy in our eyes and the United Nations 
will l)egin to suffer from a sort of moral deafness 
in which "might" and "right" sound like the same 
word. They might then hope to overwhelm the 
Korean people and conquer all of Korea witliout 
the community of nations daring to intervene. 
Such a situation should give every small, free na- 
tion in the world reason to fear for its life. 

'Made in Committee I (Political and Security) on Nov. 
23 (U.S. delegation press release 3309) . 

But, if that is really the hope of the Communist 
leaders, they should stop deceiving themselves. 
The United Nations has stood by Korea for 12 
years, and it is not going to give up now. The 
great majority of nations represented in this room 
are not held together by the iron discij^line of an 
ideology but are held together by something far 
more profound: our allegiance to the United Na- 
tions Charter and to the world of decency for 
which it stands. 

History of Korean Question 

Now let us recall briefly the facts of the Korean 
question and especially the developments since the 
General Assembly last considered it a year ago. 

On December 1, 1943, at Cairo, President Eoose- 
velt. Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, and Prime 
Minister Churchill declared that Korea should 
become free and independent. This pledge was re- 
affirmed by the same three powers at Potsdam on 
July 26, 194.5. The Soviet Union, upon its entry 
into the war against Japan, subscribed to the Pots- 
dam declaration and reaffirmed this pledge at Mos- 
cow on December 27, 1945. At that time, in fact, 
the Foreign Ministers of the United States, the 
United Kingdom, and the Soviet Union went a 
step further and agreed that a provisional Korean 
democratic government should be set up for all 
Korea, with a view to the reestablislunent of 
Korea as an independent state. 

When this ^foscow agreement was reached the 
(^onuuunists were already seeking to make penna- 
nont tlie division of Korea which had been in- 
tended purely for the purpose of accepting the 
surrender of Japanese troops in Korea. In Sep- 
tember 1945, by agi'eement among the Allied 
Powers, the surrender of Japanese troops in Korea 
was accepted by United States military forces 


Department ot State Bulletin 

south of the 38th parallel and by Soviet forces 
nortli of tlie :^Sth parallel, linmediatoly after the 
surrender tlie Anieriean Military Command in 
Korea approached the Soviet Command in order 
to develop a joint policy for the administration of 
the whole country. Tlie Soviet autliorities re- 
fused to cooperate. Instead they set up their own 
occupation zone north of the 3Sth parallel. Thus 
the Korean nation was cut in two. 

Immediately and repeatedly the United States 
sought to persuade tlie Soviet Union to honor its 
agreement and end the arbitrary division of 
Korea. At the conference of the Foreign Min- 
isters in Moscow in December 1945, the Soviet 
T'nion agreed to set up, with the United States, a 
.Toint Conunission in Korea to work out the long- 
range political and economic prol)lems, including 
the establishment of a provisional democratic 
structure for all of Korea. This Commission held 
24 meetings, beginning in March 1946, and accom- 
plished nothing. 

A joint conference was also .set up to deal with 
inunediate and pressing problems. It first met in 
.ranunry 1946. In it the Ignited States proposed 
a series of measures, including the imification of 
key public utilities and uniform fiscal policies. 
The Soviet authorities rejected these proposals. 
Limited agreements were reached on exchange of 
mail, radio frequencies, and other minor fields, but 
even these jiroved impossible to carry out. The 
joint conference soon disbanded. 

Despite these frustrations the United States, in 
the spirit of the charter, refused to give up trying 
for a negotiated solution. Secretary of State 
George C. Marshall took the matter up directly 
with Foreigii Minister ]Molotov. As a result, the 
Joint Commission reassembled, but the deadlock 

Later our Acting Secretary of State, Robert A. 
Lovett, called for a four-power conference to con- 
sider the implementation of the JIoscow agree- 
ment. Again the Soviet L^nion refused. 

Korean Question Submitted to U.N. 

Thus it became clear that bilateral talks could 
accomplish nothing further. At that point the 
United States, in accordance with the charter, sub- 
mitted the Korean question to the United Nations. 

Tlie General Assembly considered the matter 
at its second se.ssion in 1947. On November 14 it 
decided to establish the Ignited Nations Tempo- 

rary Commission on Korea. It recommended 
that elections be lield on tlie basis of ad\ilt suf- 
frage and secret ballot in all of Korea. 

The nine-nation Ignited Nations Commission 
went to Korea. The Soviet authorities in the 
north refused to permit it to carry on its func- 
tions. Tlie Commission tlien proceeded to hold 
elections in the southern part of Korea. These 
elections, held on ifay 10, 1048, covered an area 
inhabited by approximately two-thirds of the Ko- 
rean population. On August 23 a democratic con- 
stitution was promulgated in the Republic of 

The General Assembly, in its resolution of De- 
cember 12, 1948, certified that the government thus 
formed in Korea was "based on elections which 
were a valid expression of the free will of the 
electorate of that part of Korea" and added that 
"this is the only such Government in Korea." 

In September 1948 the Soviet authorities estab- 
lished a puppet regime in the northern part of 
Korea. I say "puppet" advisedly, because by its 
very origin this regime had not a shred of inde- 

The key leaders in the so-called "Democratic 
People's Republic of Korea" were Soviet citizens 
of Korean ancestry. They or their parents were 
Koreans who migi-ated into Soviet Asia during the 
period of Japanese control over Korea. The So- 
viet occupation authorities brought into north 
Korea, in 1945 and 1946, a number of these Soviet- 
Koreans. Tliese men became the backbone of the 
new north Korean puppet regune. Tliey were, in- 
stalled, usually as %ace. ministers, in eveiy ministry, 
in the Communist Party apparatus, and in key 
positions in the armed forces. Among them were 
the present "Premier," who goes by the name of a 
legendary Korean patriot of long ago, Kim II 
Sung. About 1930 he migrated into Soviet terri- 
tory and became a Soviet army oflScer. Also 
prominent among the Soviet- Koreans were Ho Ka 
I, who became the vice chairman of the powerful 
Commmiist "Korean Labor Party" and who had 
once been a Communist Party official in the Soviet 
Republic of Uzbekistan ; and another was General 
Nam U, a one-time Soviet army officer who became 
notorious as the chief Korean negotiator at Pan- 

Such were the men who, imder Soviet ordei"s. 
founded the regime which calls itself the "Demo- 
cratic People's Republic of Korea" — and who still 
run it today. 

January 4, 1960 


In June 1950 after the United States forces had 
been withdrawn from Korea, tliis same north Ko- 
rean regime launched an armed attack against the 
Kepublic of Korea. For this act it was branded 
as an aggressor by the Security Council and the 
General Assembly of the United Nations. Dur- 
ing the Korean hostilities this regime violated es- 
tablished principles governing the treatment of 
prisoners of war and carried out atrocities against 
military personnel of the United Nations forces 
and against Korean civilians. It has defied the 
United Nations and has demonstrated through its 
actions its contempt of the charter. No wonder, 
Mr. Chairman, that this regime in north Korea 
has not achieved recognition by a single govern- 
ment of the world outside the Conunmiist bloc. 

Armistice Agreement and Geneva Conference 

After o years of war and 2 years of negotiation, 
the Korean fighting ended with the Armistice 
Agi'eement of July 1953. 

Throughout the 6 years since that agreement 
was signed, the Communists have violated it 
grossly and continuously. They completely frus- 
trated the supervisory machinery by making in- 
spection impossible in north Korea. They 
strengthened their fortifications and brought in 
modern weapons ]irohibited by the Armistice 
Agreement. And they heartlessly refused to ac- 
count for thousands of Korean and United Na- 
tions persomiel missing m action. 

I pause at this point, Mr. Chairman, to renew 
this appeal to the Communist authorities — an ap- 
peal which our representatives at Panmunjom 
have made many times: 

The United Nations Command long ago gave 
you the names of 2,047 militai-y personnel of the 
United Nations Command who are still missing 
and not accounted for. Of these names, 451 are 
those of Americans. We know from your own 
propaganda that some of these individuals at one 
time were alive and in youi* hands as prisoners of 
war. Under the Korean Armistice Agreement 
you are obliged to accomit for all of these men and 
to repatriate any who are still alive. In the name 
of simple humanity to the families of these men, 
the United States again appeals to you to honor 
your obligation. 

Mr. Chiiii-man, the Korean Armistice Agree- 
ment also included a reconmiendation for a politi- 
cal conference to be held witliin 90 days. By Au- 

gust 1953 the General Assembly had completed 
its arrangements to participate in this conference, 
but it was not untd 9 months later that the Com- 
munists, after having remilitarized north Korea 
in defiance of the Armistice Agreement, sat down 
with the United Nations membei-s at Geneva in 
AprU 1954. 

The United Nations members in that Geneva 
conference made every effort to obtain agreement 
which would lead to the establishment of a uni- 
fied, democratic, and independent Korea. They 
enunciated two fundamental principles which 
nmst provide the basis of a Korean settlement 
consistent with the objectives of the United 
Nations.- These principles are: 

1. The United Nations, under its Charter, is fully and 
rightfully empowered to take collective action to repel 
aggression, to restore peace and security, and to extend 
its good offices to seeking a peaceful settlement in Korea. 

2. In order to establish a unified, independent and dem- 
ocratic Korea, genuinely free elections should be held 
under United Nations supervision, for representatives in 
the national assembly, in which representation shall be 
in direct proportion to the indigenous population in 

The Communist participants refused to agree to 
any arrangements which would guarantee that 
elections for reunification would be carried out in 
genuine freedom. Their proposals would have 
provided the Communist side with an absolute 
veto over the conduct of the elections. They pro- 
posed an all-Korean election commission on which 
they demanded that north Korea, with its pojiula- 
tion of 9 million, should be given the same num- 
ber of members as south Korea, whose population 
is 22 million. They also demanded that all deci- 
sions in the commission be made on the basis of 
mutual agreement — in other words, they wanted 
the veto power. 

Further, the Communists denied the competence 
of the United Nations to deal with the Korean 
question. Thus they sought to undermine the 
United Nations as an instrument for the mainte- 
nance of international peace and prevention of 

The United Nations representatives at Geneva 
refused to compromise the principles for which 
their countries had fought on the battlefields of 
Korea. Faced with a rigid Communist position 
frustrating all prospects for honorable agreement,

tliey accepted the fuct that tlie conference had 

In tlie 4 years tliat followed the General Assem- 
bly repeatedly urged, by overwhelming vot<?s, that 
negotiations be resimied on the basis of established 
United Nations principles, but the Conununist side 
remained inflexible. 

Latest Exchange of Communications 

Tlien, in February 1958, a new exchange of state- 
ments and communications began. I shall review 
it in some detail because it sliows the lengths to 
which the states participating in the United Na- 
tions Command have gone in their search for 
progress on the Korean question. 

1. The exchange began on February 5, 1958, 
with a statement by the north Korean regime ad- 
vancing certain proposals for the reunification of 
Korea. These proposals were transmitted to the 
governments which took part in the U.N. Com- 
mand in Korea. The Chinese Communists en- 
dorsed them in a statement 2 clays later. The pro- 
posals were two: that all foreign forces should 
first be withdrawn from Korea and that thereafter 
elections should be held under "the supervision of 
a neutral nations organization" — a phrase which 
I shall discuss later in this statement. 

2. Two weeks later the Communists announced 
that the so-called Chinese People's Volunteers 
would be withdrawn from north Korea by the end 
of 1958 and called on the governments of the 
United Nations Command to withdraw their forces 
from south Korea. 

3. The 16 member states which represent the 
United Nations in these negotiations replied ^ to 
these statements by welcoming the announced in- 
tention of the Chinese Communists finally to with- 
draw their forces, as they had been called upon to 
do year after year by resolutions of the United 
Nations General Assembly. We requested a clari- 
fication of the Communist views on the principles 
of free elections. We asked specifically whether 
these principles provided for supervision of elec- 
tions by the United Nations and whether repre- 
sentation in the National Assembly would be pro- 
portionate to the indigenous population in all 
parts of Korea. Our reply was intended to afford 
the Communists an opportunity to show whether 
they had any serious intention of moving ahead 
on the question of Korean reunification. 

4. In their reply of May G* the Chinese Com- 
munists again brushed aside the (luestion of (lie 
principles on which elections should bo held. 
They restated their position that the withdrawal 
of United Nations forces from south Korea was a 
prerequisite to any steps leading to the reunifica- 
tion of Korea. 

5. The United Nations was frankly disappointed 
by this Chinese Communist reply. It seemed to 
leave little room for hope. However, on July 2 
we sent another communication' to the Chinese 
Communist regime, in whicli we again welcomed 
the announcement that the Chinese Communist 
troops were to be withdrawn from north Korea. 
We expressed our disappointment that the Chinese 
Conununists' announcement of May 6 had not 
answered our question about the principles under 
which the elections would be held. We pointed 
out that further withdrawal of United Nations 
forces without any previous arrangement for the 
proper settlement of the Korean question would 
not be calculated to lead to the reduction of tension 
in the Far East and, indeed, such action would 
remove one necessary guarantee which exists 
against further aggression in Korea. We em- 
phasized that we wished to see a genuine settle- 
ment of the Korean question in accordance with 
the United Nations resolutions. We concluded by 
stating that the governments participating in the 
United Nations Command were prepared to with- 
draw United Nations forces when the conditions 
for the lasting settlement laid down by the Gen- 
eral Assembly had been fulfilled. 

6. On November 10 a Chinese Communist com- 
munique again called for the withdrawal of 
United Nations troops from south Korea. They 
again stated that after withdrawal of all foreign 
forces all-Korea free elections could be held under 
the supervision of a "neutral nations organiza- 
tion." And again they did not elaborate. 

7. The United Nations members replied ' to this 
note by transmitting the General Assembly reso- 
lution of 14 November 1958, which had been 
adopted by a vote of 54 to 9. As the committee 
will recall, this resolution urged the Communist 
authorities to accept United Nations objectives and 
to agree to genuinely free elections under the 
principles endorsed by the General Assembly.

8. Finally, on March 4, 1959, the Chinese Com- 
munists restated the demands for the withdrawal 
of foreign troops from Korea and argued that "the 
United Nations has been reduced to a belligerent 
in the Korean war and lost all competence and 
moral authority to deal fairly with the Korean 
question. Therefoi'e, any resolution on the 
Korean question is unilaterally null and void." 

On that note of defiance the Chinese Com- 
nuniists ended this lengthy exchange of com- 

Main Communist Demands Examined 

Mr. Chairman, from this whole record it is 
clear that the Communists have no present desire 
to move forward to the settlement of the Korean 
problem on any terms short of surrender by the 
United Nations. 

If we examine their main demands in detail, we 
can see that this is ti-ue. They have insisted upon 
three things. 

First, they insist that the United Nations Com- 
mand shoidd withdraw its troops from Korea be- 
fore there can be any agreement on the terms or 
methods of unification. 

Second, they insist that "the United Nations has 
been reduced to a belligerent in the Korean war 
and lost all competence and moral authority to 
deal fairly with the Korean question.*' 

Third, they propose that all-Korean elections, 
after the United Nations troops have been witli- 
drawn from Korea, should be held under the super- 
vision of a "neutral nations organization." 

Let me take up these three points in turn. 

Demand for Withdrawal of U.N. Troops 

1. To withdraw the protection of United Na- 
tions troops from the Republic of Korea, before 
the Korean question has been solved in accordance 
with United Nations principles, would leave Ko- 
rea once again exposed to the threat of renewed 
Communist aggre.ssion. None of us will forget 
what happened within months after the United 
States withdrew from Korea in 1949. Even 
though the Soviet Union had announced that its 
forces too had been withdrawn, this statement 
could not be verified through the barrier of secrecy 
surrounding north Korea. In any case it is known 
that before their announced withdrawal the So- 
viet forces had trained north Korean forces 
amounting to between 50,000 and 60,000 troops 

and that, between then and the aggi-ession of June 
1950, these same Korean forces, heavily armed, 
had grown to between 150,000 and 180,000 men. 
And we know also that senior Soviet officere were 
with the Korean armed forces in the guise of "ad- 
visere" at the time the aggression was launched. 

Meanwhile the United States forces had left 
the mainland — some of them to Japan and most of 
them across the 11,000 miles of the Pacific to the 
continental United States. Wlien the aggression 
began and the United Nations answered the call 
to help the Republic of Korea, despite all we could 
do the aggressors were able to overrun most of the 
peninsula, inflicting untold havoc and suffering 
on the civilian population, before the United Na- 
tions counteroffensive could be organized. 

Today again the north Korean armed forces are 
large and heavily armed — this time in gross viola- 
tion of the Armistice Agreement. Today, as al- 
ways, they have the advantage of a Communist 
hinterland just beyond the Yalu River, across 
which supplies and reinforcements can be sent to 
support a new aggression. The Ignited States has 
not forgotten the words of Chou En-lai, the 
Chinese Communist Premier, at the time his "vol- 
unteers" were allegedly withdrawn from north 
Korea last year, when he pledged to his Communist 
comrades in north Korea that this withdrawal did 
not mean that the Chinese people "have forsaken 
their international duty to the Korean people." 
These words, coming from a regime which has re- 
peatedly refused to forswear the use of force as an 
instrument of its foreign policy, carry ominous 
military implications. 

Already, since the armistice, United Nations 
troops in Korea have been greatly reduced. They 
include two United States divisions, a Turkish 
brigade, a Thai companj', and small liaison groups 
from other countries. As the Communists have 
been told many times, the United Nations members 
are prepared to withdraw their remaining forces 
from Korea when conditions for a lasting settle- 
ment have been fulfilled. A withdrawal under 
present conditions could lead to onlj^ one solution 
of the Korean question — Communist conquest. 

Question of U.N. Competence 

2. I now come to the second Communist con- 
tention — that tlie United Nations is a mere "bel- 
ligerent" in Korea and has thus "lost all com- 
petence and moral authority to deal fairly with the 
Korean question." 


Department of Sfofe Bulletin 

Even for the Chinese Communists, tliis state- 
ment is a masterpiece of ofVrontery. It is as if a 
policeman who liiiil come to quell a riot should be 
told by the chief rioter, "You have no authority 
here — you're just another rioter." 

If this contention wei-e to be accepted, we would 
have to give up all ideas of justice in the affaire 
of nations. We would have to admit that the him- 
tlreds of thousands of deaths and wounds borne by 
I'uited Nations soldiers in Korea, including large 
numbers of soldiers of my own country, had been 
su tiered for the sake of an illusion. 

The only possible rejoinder to such an outra- 
geous statement is to reassert the principle re- 
peatedly endoreed by the General Assembly: 

The United Nations, under its Charter, is fully and 
rightfully empowered to take collective action to repel 
aggression, to restore jieace and security, and to extend 
its good offices to seeking a peaceful settlement in Korea. 

^'■Xentral Nations Supervision''' of Elections 

3. Finally we come to the third Communist pro- 
posal — all-Korean elections to take place at some 
time after the protection of United Nations troops 
liad been removed and to be held imder the super- 
vision of a "neutral nations organization.'* 

If what the Communists want is genuinely 
neutral supervision^in other words, impartial 
supervision — that impartiality could easily be 
found among the 82 membere of the United Na- 
tions, who have arranged for supervision of more 
than one election. But the Communists arbi- 
trarily rule out the United Nations and call for 
supervision by so-called "neutral nations." 

When tlie Communists chose this phrase they 
must have thought the United Nations had a very 
short memory. We have already had experience 
of "neutral nations supervision" in Korea, which, 
I should point out, in fact consisted of two genuuie 
neutrals and two Communist members. In actual 
operation the Commmiist members have been any- 
thing but neutral. As a consequence the Commis- 
sion has been unable to fill the role intended by the 
Armistice Agreement. 

It is this past experience which is our only guide 
in interpreting the phrase "neutral nations" in 
t he new Communist proposals. It is hard to avoid 
the conclusion, in pondering this stubborn Com- 
munist i^sistance to fi-ee elections, that the au- 
thorities in control of north Korea are afraid to 
let the people in north Korea express their true 
feelings in an honest vote. 

After the most careful examination of those 
three Connnunist propo.sals, the United Nations 
has Ix'cn unable to find anything in them which 
suggests a concession or a willingness to reach a 
reasonable settlement. The proposals are not 
concessions at all; they are simply one-sided 

U.S. Sponsors Resolution Embodying U.N. Principles 

In such circumstances, ilr. Chairman, the 
United States believes that the wise course for the 
United Nations is to stand fast on tlie principles 
which we have supported from the beginning and 
which we Ivnow to be right : 

First, the right — and, in fact, the duty — of the 
United Nations to seek a just settlement of the 
Korean question in harmony with the principles 
of the charter and to extend its good offices for 
that purpose ; 

Second, the requirement of genuinely free elec- 
tions throughout Korea, to be held under United 
Nations supervision, and the election of a na- 
tional assembly in which representation shall be 
directly proportionate to the indigenous popula- 
tion in all parts of Korea. 

These principles are once again embodied in a 
draft i-esolution which will be submitted to this 
committee.^ The United States is sponsoring this 
draft, together with other members. We urge its 
adoption as the wisest course ojjen to the General 
Assembly at this time. 

The Cause of a Free and United Korea 

Mr. Chairman, I conclude. Wlien an injustice 
is long continued and when the perpetrator of the 
injustice is stubborn, those who have upheld jus- 
tice may be tempted to grow weary of the struggle. 
They may also attribute to the ofi'ender far more 
control over the forces of history than he actually 
possesses. And naturally that is what the offender 
hopes will happen. 

Yet in fact the cause of a fre« and united Korea 
is a lively cause. The Republic of Korea is a go- 
ing concern. The devastation of war is largely 
repaired. As the latest report of the United Na- 
tions Commission for the Unification and Rehabili-

which were sent to Korea in accordance with reso-

tatioit of Korea ^ clearly shows, its economy is ex- 
panding and improving in spite of the handicaps 
of the division of the country. It has had political 
controversies, but its citizens have also a civil and 
religious freedom which does not exist in north 
Korea. The morale and courage of the people in 
the Republic of Korea continue high. The support 
of the United Nations, including the forces of the 
United Nations Command which still stand guard, 
remains firm and unwavering. The recognition 
of 40 states of the free world, membership in 9 
United Nations specialized agencies, and the sup- 
port of tlie vast majority for the Republic of Ko- 
rea's membership in the United Nations itself, 
show how this young nation has established itself 
in the family of nations.

We cannot tell what stresses exist behind tlie 
screen of Conmuinist secrecy in north Korea. It is 
perfectly obvious that the people in that part of the 
country, under Communist rule, are far worse off 
than in the south and that they yearn for freedom. 

I do not for a moment suggest that the working 
of these forces will quickly make the Communists 
change their stand. Their strength and their 
rigidity are obvious. But I do suggest that the 
long-range prospects of the Republic of Korea are 
good. I^et us of the United Nations do nothing to 
dim those prospects. Let us not bexjome tired of 
true principles merely because the problem before 
us is not ripe for a solution. The time will come, 
as it has come in many other cases of justice long 
deferred in many parts of the world. What is 
essential is that the supporters of justice shall keep 
faith with their principles. 


Department of State Bulletin 

Never was this fidelity to principle more neces- 
sary for the United Nations than in the case of 
Korea, in which the United Nations has had an 
active responsibility from the beginning. If wo 
remain true to the charter in our stewardship of 
the Korean question, we will find that in tltis case, 
too, there is no more powerful force working in the 
minds of men than the desire for a future of free- 
dom and justice. 

Let us keep that future open for the Korean 

Development Toward Independence 
in the Trust Territories 

Statement by Clement J. Zdblocki 

U.S. Representative to the General Assembly ^ 

The President of the 13th session of the General 
Assembly vei-y aptly labeled the deliberations 
over which he had presided as "the African 
session." As members recall, the 13th session 
continued over into the spring of 1959 and 
reached important decisions on the Cameroons 
under French and United Kingdom administra- 
tions. With this in mind, it would seem to my 
delegation that the 14th session could appropri- 
ately be called the "second African session." 
Certainly most of our thoughts, words, and 
efforts this year have been directed to the second 
largest continent, which is developing so rapidly 
and from which the forebears of so many dis- 
tinguished American citizens have originated. 

Mr. Chairman, the report of the Trusteesliip 
Council,^ which we have before us, is a truly his- 
toric document. For the very last time we meet 
here to discuss a report wliich includes Cameroun 
under French administration, Togoland under 
French administration, and SomalUand under 
Italian administration. Next year representatives 
of these countries will be sitting among us, con- 
tributing to our discussion of developments in 
Tanganyika and Ruanda-Urundi, the only re- 
maining trust territories in Africa other than the 
British Cameroons. My delegation has already 
congratulated representatives of the three trust

territories, as well as those of the Administering 
Authorities, on the attainment of tlie ol)jectiviM 
of the international trusteeship system, and my 
Government is looking forward to i-eafHrniing our 
sentunents in a more formal manjier on tlio dates 
when Cameroun, Togo, and Somalia join the 
ranks of free and independent nations. 

Independence of Africa 

I would like at this time to point out again 
that the progressive development toward inde- 
pendence or self-government in Africa is one 
which the American people applaud whole- 
heartedly. As a people we have always been un- 
easy when the freedom of others has been en- 
trusted to us, if only because of our own history 
and traditions. We have, therefore, consequently 
attempted to bring the territories for which we 
have been responsible as quickly as possible to 
full self-government. The American people are, 
I believe, peculiarly fitted to understand tlie 
aspirations for freedom of other peoples. The 
history of the United States is in a very real 
sense the story of the contribution of successive 
mmority groups, who came here to escape tyranny 
or poverty, spent at times a difficult period of 
adjustment, and finally emerged as fully equal 
and valued members of our society. 

Mr. Chairman, we believe the issue of self- 
government in Africa is, in the main, one whicli 
does not di^-ide the peoples of the West. Tliere is 
division on methods and timing but not on objec- 
tives. We believe the record of progress, reflected 
in the composition and attitude of this committee, 
speaks for itself. 

Moreover, sir, I doubt that the central issue 
of independence of dependent territories divides 
this committee as deeply as might be thought by 
a casual observer. Some believe progress toward 
independence cannot be too rapid; others that 
haste has its inherent dangers. And yet it is 
surprising how often, on essentials, this commit- 
tee adopts resolutions by overwhelming majorities. 

Of course we must add somewhat woefully 
that we have made haste slowly in the committee 
this year. Nevertheless we continue to hope that 
this situation will soon be remedied in a series of 
productive night sessions. 

I would now like to turn to specific trust 

January 4, 1960 



111 less than 53 clays, Mr. Chairman, Cameroun 
under French administration will become fully 
independent. We hope this happy occasion will 
be the signal for full national reconciliation. 
However, it is difficult in the extreme to bring 
together a government, the custodian of civil 
order, and an external opposition determined to 
use force to achieve its objectives. My delegation 
believes that the framework of present laws in 
Cameroun permits any citizen of good faith to re- 
turn and seek elective offic*. We think the 
course of the elections held on April 12, which 
resulted in the election, among others, of Mr. 
[Theodore] Mayi-Matip, is fair and reasonable 
proof of this proposition. It is our most earnest 
hope that resort to violence shall cease and that 
all elements of the population will see the enor- 
mous advantage of working together for the good 
of their country. 

Mr. Mayi-Matip is with us today. We would 
have been only too happy to welcome here as 
well the Prime Minister of Cameroun, Mr. [Ama- 
dou] Ahidjo. However, it is, of course, obvious 
that the Prime Minister must give precedence to 
liis country's preparations for independence. In 
any event Mr. Ahidjo could not have had more 
able and effective spokesmen than the distin- 
guished delegate of France, Mr. [Jacques] 
Koscziusko-Morizet, and the eminent poet, states- 
man, and parliamentarian [Leopold Sedar Seng- 
hor] who is President of the Assembly of Mali. 
We would like to thank Mr. Koscziusko-Morizet 
and Mr. Senghor for their extremely valuable 
contributions to this debate. 


My delegation also welcomed the contribution 
of Mr. Paulin Freitas, Minister of State for Inte- 
rior, Information, and the Press of the Republic 
of Togo. The information ho brings us is wel- 
come, particularly with regard to recent political 
developments. On the other hand we regret that 
applications for assistance made under the Ex- 
panded Program of Technical Assistance have not 
been satisfied more rapidly, and we will support 
his suggestion that the committee lend its moral 
authority to reinforce these requests of the Gov- 
ernment of Togoland. 

Mr. Chairman, I am sure that many delegates 
have felt keenly the absence here, for the first time 

in many years, of Prime Minister Sylvanus Olym- 
pio. I hope Mr. Paulin Freitas will take back 
with him a sense of the deep affection we all have 
for his country and for its distinguished Prime 


Fortunately imminent independence for Somali- 
land has not deprived us of old friends. We are 
pleased to see among us, as members of the Italian 
delegation, the Minister of National Economy, 
Haji Farrah, and his colleagues from Somalia. 
My delegation was very much interested in the 
infonnative statement delivered by the distin- 
guished delegate of Italy, my good friend Mr. 
[Girolamo] Vitelli, Vice President of the Trustee- 
ship Council. 

We all realize, Sir. Chairman, that Somalia will 
enter independent life with formidable problems. 
Despite this, we are confident that one of the two 
most serious problems, that of economic aid, has 
been solved, as the statement by the Italian dele- 
gate made clear, by offers already made by Italy, 
the United Kingdom, and the United States. My 
delegation has also noted with satisfaction that the 
Government of the United Arab Republic, tlirough 
its representative on the Trusteesliip Council, 
offered to continue grantmg scholarships to 
Somalia after independence and to supply doctors 
and other experts. 

The other basic problem facing Somalia con- 
stitutes a separate item on our agenda, and I will 
therefore not comment on it in any detail at this 
time. In brief, it is highly desirable that the trust 
territoi-y — and indeed a trust territory with a 
very special status — should acliieve independence 
with its frontiers clearly define-d. 

The problem of the unsettled frontier becomes 
all the more acute as the result of the desire of 
the inhabitants of the territory, as expressed by a 
resolution adopted by the Legislative Assembly of 
Somalia on August 25, IDSO,' to achieve independ- 
ence earlier than foreseen by the trusteeship agree- 
ment. We hope the General Assembly will raise 
no objection to the realization of this desire 
through an appropriate resolution.*

Department of Sfofe BuUetin 


Mr. C'luunnan, we luive listened with great in- 
tei'est to the information supplied to the coinmitfeo 
by the distinfjuished dcle<;ato of tlie United King- 
dom. Wo hope the committt>e will take tlie occa- 
sion alTordcd by the pi-esent debate to congratulate 
the Administering Authority for its achievements 
during the past year. F'or its part, my delegation 
would like to reiterate the words of the U.S. Rep- 
resentative to the Trusteeship Council,' who .said 
on February C, 1959, that the United States 

. . . has high hoites thnt the fluni chapters in the de- 
pendent life of Tanganyika will be as successful as they 
have been in other territories which have been so succes.s- 
fiilly administered by the British Government. 

Developments which have taken place since the 
Trusteeship Council discussed Tanganyika have 
only added to these hopes. We have already ap- 
plauded the st^itement in October 1958 by Gov- 
ernor Sir Richard Tunibull that, when self-gov- 
ernment is attained, the legislative and executive 
sides of the government are likely to be predom- 
inantly African. We believe the surest giiarantee 
of the rights and interests of the "minoritj' com- 
mimities" is the good will of the majority and 
the realization by all groups that self-interest 
dictates the closest continued cooperation. The 
constitution of a Council of Ministers on July 1, 
1959, with elected imoiEcials ^ is certainly a step 
which can only increase mutual confidence and 
good will. Similarly the results of the two-stage 
elections ending in February of this year have 
also contributed to the great spirit of coopera- 
tion wliich appears to exist in the ten-itory. 

Mr. Chairman, I have already mentioned the 
jirofound and happy impact on developments in 
Tanganyika of Governor Sir Richard Tunibull; 
I would like to add a word of praise for the other 
partner in tliis fruitful dialog. The Tanganyika 
African National Union is one of the largest and 
most effective political organizations in Africa; 
it is also one of the most realistic and ably led 
political groups on the continent. The leader of 
TANU, Mr. Julius Nyerere, who is well known in 
the United Nations, has shown statesmanship of a

high order, which augurs well for the future of 

his country. 


It, had been the intention of my delegation to 
comment in some detail on developments in the 
other remaining African trust territory, Ruanda- 
Urundi under Belgian administration. In view 
of the fact that an important policy pronounce- 
ment is expected shortly from the Belgian Gov- 
ernment, my delegation will not comment now but 
may return to this subject at a later date. 

Questions of policy aside, my delegation would 
like to pay tribute to the lucid and sympathetic 
analysis of conditions in the territory given us 
yesterday by the distinguished delegate of Bel- 
gium, Governor [A.] Claeys Bouuaert. Few men 
know the territory as well as he does or have a 
more liberal approach to its problems. We all 
understand that what he called the "ethnicosocial 
structure"' of Ruanda-Urundi is likely to compli- 
cate development in all fields. My Government 
believes that the Administering Authority is doing 
its best to facilitate a smooth transition from a 
quasi-feudal to a modern social order, but we know 
that difficulties are bound to arise. We hope that 
everyone concerned, starting with the peoples of 
the territory and including the members of this 
committee, will do nothing to exacerbate existing 
and possible future difficulties. 

Pacific Territories 

Turning to the trust territories in the Pacific 
area which come under the supervision of the Gen- 
eral Assembly, I wish merely to comment on our 
pleasure at hearing the statement made a few days 
ago by the Prime Minister of New Zealand, Mr. 
Walter Nash. Our deliberations were graced by 
his presence, and the information he has given us 
is heartening. 

We concur wholeheartedly with the Prime Min- 
ister's statement that Western Samoa "has made 
amazing progress since 1945." If that progress 
has on occasion appeared somewhat unbalanced, 
in that primary stress was given political rather 
than economic and educational development, we 
were jjleased to learn that efforts are now being 
made to accelerate progress in tlie other two fields. 
The progress achieved has made it possible finally 
to establish a tentative timetable for the termina- 
tion of trusteeship. 

January 4, 1960 


Postindependence Aid to Trust Territories 

Mr. Chairman, I do not wish to comment in any 
greater detail on the report of the TriLsteeship 
Coiuicil. My Government participates fully in the 
work of the Council, and we have already com- 
mented fully on developments in each of the trust 

Before concluding, I would like to state briefly 
our views on the statement made before this com- 
mittee on Thursday [November 5] by the dis- 
tinguished President of the Trusteeship Coimcil, 
Ambassador [Max H.] Dorsinville of Haiti. No 
one in recent years has contributed more to the 
work of the Council or of this committee. Am- 
bassador Dorsinville informally proposed the crea- 
tion of a "small conmiittee" to study, together 
with the United Nations Secretariat and the secre- 
tariats of the specialized agencies, means of bring- 
ing assistance, if they request it, to the former 
trust territories. The results of this study would 
be communicated to the 15th session of the Gen- 
eral Assembly. 

I am sure that no one will misunderstand the 
meaning of this proposal. Trust territories, when 
they achieve independence, are in exactly the same 
juridical category as any other sovereign state. As 
we understand the distinguished delegate of Haiti, 
however, the United Nations will continue to have 
a special interest and even moral responsibility to 
assist former trust territories if they should re- 
quest such assistance. We believe this view is 
sound; developments in the trust territories cer- 
tainly have been profoimdly influenced by recom- 
mendations of the Trusteeship Council and the 
General Assembly. The United Nations therefore 
is in some degi-ee responsible for the conditions 
under which tiiist territories achieve independ- 

Our difficulties with this proposal are of another 
order entirely. If a study gTOup is to report to the 
15th session, almost a full, crucial year will have 
passed before the needs of several of the trust 
territories can be dealt with. We would prefer 
to see effective action taken as rapidly as possible. 
My delegation would support a resolution inviting 
the Secretary-General to appoint higli-ranking 
economic experts to a.ssist the newly independent 
states, formerly trust territories, if they so desire, 
to plan and coordinate their development pro- 
grams. We realize that the Secretary-Greneral is 
already empowered to do this. However, a resolu- 


tion to this effect would be a concrete expression ■ 
of the Assembly's desires in this matter, which 
would facilitate the Secretary-General's task in a • 
field where demands for assistance needs far out- 
weigh the means available.^ 

At the same time we believe that existing facili- 
ties of the United Nations might be more fully 
utilized by the emerging trust territories. We 
would hope that the emerging trust territories 
might take advantage of United Nations facilities 
at the earliest opportmiity, so that when these 
countries attain independence they will have readi- 
ly available to them on a continuing basis the 
counsel of experienced specialists already on the 

Mr. Chairman, that is what I have to say at 
this stage of the debate. As long as all the Ad- 
ministering Authorities have not spoken and pe- 
titionere continue to be heard, my delegation de- 
sires to reserve the right to speak again on some 
of these specific subjects, if it should find it 

The Responsibility of Aiding 
tiie World's Refugees 

Statement hy James G. Fulton 

U.S. Representative to the General Assembly ^ 

This is a pleasant and a heartwarming occasion. 
Here are the peoples of the world accepting respon- 
sibility for something that is on the world's con- 
science. The refugees are looking today to see 
what we are doing about it. I would say that, f i-om 
my point of view, it is a very hopeful occasion. 
As I look around and see the nations that are here, 
I want to compliment the people who have repre- 
sentatives of their governments pi-esent on this 
pleasant occasion and to compliment the ones that 
are increasing their contributions, because it is 
a hopeful sign. 

I believe that we should have the world a good

world not only for the settled peoples of the 
world, no matter where they are, but for these un- 
settled people. These refugee families should 
be able to have the same progress, security, and 
hope as the rest of us. 

I have always been interested in refugees per- 
sonally. As a Member of the United States Con- 
gress, I was — in the SOth Congress, some time 
ago — the chairman of the Subcommittee for Ref- 
ugees of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. I 
think it is alwaj's interesting to hear people who 
have had personal experience. After "\\\)rld War 
II on several occasions during several years, I 
have been in more than a hundred refugee camps 
of all types, sizes, and descriptions. And I am 
one of that great body of the American people that 
have opened their homes and have sponsored refu- 
gees. As a matter of fact I have a refugee who 
works with me here this morning, a fine young 
person who is ambitious. They are the kind of 
people that live up to what we want in the world. 
I would say to you they are a resource of the 
world that we should not overlook. They are not 
only a human resource, but they are an industrial 
and a people's resource. For example, in the 
United States of America I am veiy glad to report 
to you that the refugee population, the new United 
States citizens taken from this group, are our most 
law-abiding group of citizens. Secondly, they 
are the healthiest group of our citizens, and, I 
might say, they are certainly an active group. 

Today we have the opportunity to show by 
deeds — by money contributions from each of our 
peoples— the concern felt by all peoples of con- 
science and good will for these refugees. 

This is World Refugee Year. It is therefore 
fitting that each country here represented make a 
real effort to help. Our United States people wel- 
come this help and welcome the cliance to join 
with all of you in helping to pro\nde it. 

I am reminded of a Polish proverb that has al- 
ways had a great influence on me, and that is the 
old proverb that says about a village that, if every- 
body will sweep his own doorstep, the whole 
town will be clean. 

If we all do our share on this, we will be able to 
have a clean world, a clean town, and clean refu- 
gee camps, because the refugees will have been 
provided homes. We must provide permanent 
homes for the refugees who are homeless through 
no fault of their own. We must make special ef- 

forts to work toward permanent solutions of these 
problems, and we must intensify our programs of 
international assistance to meet immediate needs. 

U.N. Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees 

I turn now to the United Nations Relief and 
Works Agency for Palestine Refugees. 

It is with pleasure that I am able to announce 
on behalf of the United States Government a 
pledge of $23 million on behalf of the American 
people to UNRWA for the fiscal year period end- 
ing on June 30, 1960. This pledge is for the relief 
and rehabilitation progranxs which have now been 
combined in one budget. Payments against this 
pledge will as heretofore be made to an extent nof 
to exceed 70 percent of the total government con- 
tributions to UNRWA. I believe we American 
people are doing our share in this regard. 

In past years the United States has provided 70 
percent of UNRWA's governmental contributions. 
This proportion of contribution by the United 
States must be considered for the present, and it 
must be for present purposes rather than a per- 
manent fixed arrangement. We feel that it should 
not be considered a commitment on future pro- 
portions Ijecause those will be made in the good 
judgment of our Government and our people. 
The United States believes that with the renewed 
life of UNRWA for another 3 years,^ it is timely 
to suggest that a substantially increased portion 
of the costs for the continuation of the agency's 
support to Palestine refugees should be borne in 
the future by other members of the United 

We hope that more peoples can through the 
governments of member states give more in pro- 
portion to their resources. We member states 
must search our o^vn consciences in the knowl- 
edge that a million human beings are in very real 

In planning for the years immediately ahead I 
would like to undei-score a vital consideration. 
The food, shelter, and medical needs of the Pales- 
tine refugees have first call on the funds available 
to the Agency. After tliese needs are satisfied, 
whatever funds may be left are allocated to voca- 
tional training and scholarsliip programs as well 
as self-support projects of various types. These 
are the veiy programs that give hope for a pro-

ductive fiitui-e to the refugees, particularly to 
the majority of the refugees who are children and 
ambitious young people. Due to lack of funds 
these jjrograms have been moving in starts and 
suspensions. They have been drastically reduced 
and at times practically abandoned. With the 
Palestine refugee population increasing by over 
30,000 each year, as births outnmnber deaths, the 
f mids to continue and expand these forward-look- 
ing programs become more and more essential. 
Thus greater contributions are needed, and the 
United States urges all member states to join in 
contributing generously to this worthy cause. 

United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees 

I would like to turn to the program of the 
United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. 

The United States has been deeply gratified to 
obseiwe the constructive and energetic measures 
which the High Commissioner has adopted in 
carrying out his programs of aid to the refugees 
imder his care. His tireless efforts and the high 
goals he has set have intensified the interest and 
activities of many governments and peoples and 
of many voluntary organizations in this impor- 
tant year for world refugees. We should not 
overlook the voluntary organizations of people 
and groups in many of our countries. 

I am pleased to announce a United States 
pledge of $1,100,000 toward the High Commis- 
sioner's regular i^rogram for 1960. This sum will 
be made available, as in the past, to the extent it 
represents no more than 33l^ percent of the total 
contributions made by goverimients to that 

In addition the United States has allocated 
$1,070,000 to special projects which the High 
Commissioner has undertaken or plans to under- 
take this year in connection with World Refugee 
Year, which I would like to speak about in a little 
more detail. 

World Refugee Year 

I would like to stress that the United States 
Government is intensely interested in assuring the 
success of tiie World Refugee Year. President 
Eisenhower has issued a special proclamation " to 
the American people calling for a far-reaching 
effort on the part of organizations and citizens 

to acliieve its purposes. The United States has 
pledged special contributions of $4 million toward 
the purposes of the World Refugee Year over 
and above its regular yearly contributions of some 
$40 million to various refugee programs. These 
additional contributions are being administered 
either through the High Commissioner's Office, 
as I have already indicated, or through other gov- 
ernmental channels, or through voluntary agen- 
cies with long expei'ience in the administration 
of refugee and assistance programs. 

I should point out to you that not all people 
of the United States are well to do and that these 
contributions are coming from our taxpayers big 
and little, large and small, and many of them ai^e 
very hard-working people, so that it comes out of 
their family budgets. 

To mention a few examples of programs that 
have been helped by the United States Govern- 
ment this year as part of the World Refugee 

—$600,000 has been made available to the High 
Commissioner as an additional contribution for 
the camp-clearance program. 

— $100,000 for refugees of Greek ethnic origin. 

— $600,000 has been made available to assist the 
rehabilitation of European refugees living out-

12,000 visjis are expiH'loil to ho. issued to relatives 
of pei-sons previously admitted under earlier refu-

extended legislation whereby refugees sutlering 
from tuberculosis may join close relatives in the 
United States, as well as legislation allowing for 
the admission of orphans and adopted children. 
These are measures which will directly benefit 
some of the most unfoi-tnnate cases among the 
refugees. I am particularly pleased to hear rep- 
resentatives this morning speak of their expanded 
efforts and how they are taking care of some of 
the most unfortunate cases. 

The programs of nongovernmental organiza- 
tions in the "World Refugee Year within the 
United States have also gone forward vigorously. 
The fine United States Committee for Refugees, 
formed just a year ago, has brought together 
prominent civic-minded citizens from all sections 
of American life in this worthy effort.^ The com- 
mittee is working in close coordination with the 
many American voluntary agencies traditionally 
successful and active in rendering heart-warming 
refugee assistance. These programs over the years 
have made immeasurable contributions in terms of 
effort and resources in the cause of refugees. A 
target goal of $20 million has been established for 
contributions from our United States private citi- 
zens over and above the sums normally being 

Activities on behalf of refugees undertaken 
during the World Refugee Year are a cause of 
great satisfaction to us, and we want to share 
those with the other peoples whose representatives

in undue optimism or complacency. "We know the 
"World Refugee Year cannot solve all refugee 
problems. Its major potential, though, is in re- 
ducing human suffering and increasing human 
hope, and these are certain goals that can be 
achieved. Its greatest value lies in the fact that 
the World Refugee Year is a symbol of the con- 
certed desire and will of peoples of friendly na- 
tions to continue and to intensify their efforts to 
help the millions of refugees throughout the world 
who are now patiently waiting with their families 
for pennanent homes. These families are suffer-

Our combined effoi-ts of the nations will go far

the best efforts of all of us are es.sential if wo

on behalf of the American people— ask you to join 
with us in helping make this a good and under-

U.N. Votes To Continue Assistance 
to Palestine Refugees 

Following are two statements made in the Spe- 
cial Political Committee by Virgil M. Tlancher^ 
U.S. Representative to the General Assembly, dur- 
ing debate on the U.N. Relief and Works Agency 
for Palestine Refugees in the Near East {UN- 
RWA), together with the text of a resolution 
adopted in plenary session on December 9. 


U.S. delegation press release 3300 

I have asked for the floor today to make a few 
general remarks in the hope that they will con- 
tribute in a positive way to the further develop- 
ment of this debate. In doing so, I wish to reserve 
the right to inteiwene again at a later stage. 

Before turning to the item on our agenda, Mr. 
Chairman, I would like to express on behalf of 
the United States Government our profound shock 
and regret at the tragic death of Mr. Leslie Carver 
[Acting Director of UNRWA]. His unstinted 
devotion to the cause of the United Nations con- 
stituted service of the highest order. He will be 
sorely missed. 

The debate which has been initiated in this com- 
mittee on the Palestine refugee problem, a debate 
which has been going on for 11 years, now pro- 
vides each member with an unusual opportunity — 
indeed, an awesome challenge — to contribute to 
the best possible decision with respect to the future 
welfare of the one million Arab refugees. The lot 
of these individuals, about half of whom are chil- 
dren or adolescents, and their future should be 

January 4, 1960 


uppermost in our miiids as the debate proceeds. 

Over the last decade this problem has been ex- 
amined and reexamined. A nmnber of those ex- 
aminations have tended more to generate or re- 
charge emotions than to stimulate reasoned 
responses. In the interest of the refugees them- 
selves, and in the interests of stability and prog- 
ress in the Near East, it is important that we — 
all of us — face the facts of this grave situation in 
a constructive spirit. The United States delega- 
tion is impressed with the relatively moderate tone 
of most of the statements we have heard thus far 
in the committee. 

UNRWA's mandate is due to expire on June 30 
of next year. At the same time we are faced 
with a relentless increase — more than 30,000 annu- 
ally — in the number of refugees. An inescapable 
corollary is that the already very heavy costs and 
responsibilities will continue to increase if some 
progress is not made promptly on the fundamental 
elements of the problems. 

No Real Progress Yet Made 

We have before us two reports. At the request 
of the last General Assembly the Secretary-Gen- 
eral has prepared a report entitled "Proposals for 
the Continuation of United Nations Assistance 
for the Palestine Refugees." ^ We all owe him a 
debt of gratitude for the effort and imagination 
which have gone into that report. Certainly the 
Secretaiy-General's report merits our careful 
study. While we cannot subscribe to all of the 
recommendations it contains, we do believe that 
there are several, such as rectification of the relief 
rolls, which, if implemented, would be appropri- 
ate and would promote the interest of the refugees. 

We have also given careful consideration to the 
annual report of the Director of the agency ^ con- 
cerning the operations and activities of UNRWA 
during the past year and setting forth the antici- 
pated budgetary requirements for the duration of 
the mandate, as well as for the care of the refugees 
during the remainder of 1960. 

On tho basis of these reports and a review of 
the liistory of this issue, we can see the clear out- 
lines of the problem as it exists today. And it is 
with deep regret that we must conclude that no 
real progress has been made toward a f luidamental 

solution of the refugee problem. I think everyone 
here will agree with this conclusion. My delega- 
tion believes that the cause of the refugees them- 
selves is best served by lookhig ahead. We 
recognize fully that this is an extremely complex 
problem and a solution is not easy. We do not 
pretend to have a pat answer. However, assum- 
ing that all concerned endeavor to approach this 
problem i-ationally and with a degree of i-ecep- 
tivity to constructive ideas, progress can be made. 

Tlie United Nations Relief and Works Agency, 
for lack of funds and other reasons, has unfortu- 
nately been able really to perform only the "relief" 
part of its mandate. Tlais year's report of the Di- 
rector, like those of his predecessors, states that 
there has been little or no progress in the ex- 
tremely important "works" aspects of the Agency's 

'Wlien the U.N. agreed to extend the life of the 
agency 5 years ago,^ it was expected that some 
progress would be made during the ensuing period 
in relaabilitating the refugees and helping them to 
become self-supporting. The United States at 
tliat time made clear its expectation that progress 
would be achieved on large-scale projects designed 
to benefit the refugees and the countries concerned. 
We have noted with regret that such expectations 
have not been realized. Only a few programs 
have been implemented. I am referring particu- 
larly to the vocational training programs. These 
programs liave proved eminently successful, but 
unfortimately only a very limited number of ref- 
ugees have benefited from them. 

In the past the United States has earnestly tried 
to help the parties principally concerned to find 
a satisfactory solution. In August of 1955 the 
late Secretary of State, Jolin Foster Dulles, pro- 
posed that the refugees be enabled to resume a 
life of dignity and self-respect through repa- 
triation or resettlement.* He pledged that the 
United States would support some form of inter- 
national loan which would facilitate Israel's pay- 
ment of compensatioi\ to those refugees choosing 
resettlement and tliat the United States would 
contribute to a realization of development proj- 
ects. President Eisenhower in 1957 reaffirmed

these proposals.' Tliis interest of the Umted 
States Government and of its citizens in the care 
and in the future \vell-boin<j; and happiness of the 
Palestine refugees remains undiminished. 

The United Stat<>s is fully aware that the Pales- 
tine refugee problem is unlikely to be solved by 
the time UNRWA's mandate expires. We are 
fully aware that intoniutional sup])ort for these 
refugees undoubtedly must continue after June 
30, 1960. 

U.S. Urges Constructive Action 

Having said these things, I should like to say 
also that action limited to the mere extension of 
UNRTVA's mandate is not, in our judgment, a 
satisfactory way to serve the long-term interests 
of the refugees. There should be something more 
than this. Surely it is not unreasonable to hope 
that other constructive steps may also be taken. 

We must not allow ourselves to despair of hope 
for progress. We must not consign a million per- 
sons to indefinite subsistence living, almost de- 
void of possibilities for taking useful and self- 
supporting roles in society. My Government 
believes that the present is, perhaps, a unique 
opportimity for clear reaffirmation, on the part of 
governments most, dii-ectly concerned and all other 
states motivated by peaceful and humane inten- 
tions, that something constructive can and will be 
done about this problem. We would hope that 
friendly candor and wise imagination would play 
the dominant roles in this discussion. 

We trust that from this committee's delibera- 
tions will come realistic suggestions as to how 
progress toward the ultimate i-esolution of this 
refugee problem can be insured. We welcome the 
constructive spirit with which delegations such as 
Ceylon and India have approached this debate. 
We shall continue to give sympathetic considera- 
tion to any suggestion, whether related to the 
PCC [Palestine Conciliation Commission], a new 
commission, or any other possibility, which might 
help move us toward a resolution of the problem. 
We also welcome the timely reminder by the dis- 
tinguished delegate of India that the General As- 
sembly has consistently held to the principle that 
the I'alestine refugees be given a choice of repatri- 
ation or compensation. 

The United States, as one of the major contrib- 
utoi-s to the relief of the Palestine refugees tiius 
far, certainly would welcome consideration of 
sincere and constructive proposals from any quar- 
ter. We favor fuller examination and amplilica- 
tion of various proposals which iiave already Ix'en 
made, especially of the indications of growing 
willingness to make new attcmjits to solve some 
of the divisive questions of the Near East. We are 
hopeful that still more specific recommendations 
will be heard in the course of tiie debate. The 
United States will always do its part in any 
United Nations effort which has as its goal a 
brighter future for the Palestine refugees. 


U.S. delegaUon press release 3335 

As you are aware, discussions have been taking 
place outside the committee during the past week 
on a resolution dealing with Palestine refugees. 
I am pleased to say that the revised resolution 
which has been tabled by the distinguished rep- 
resentatives of Pakistan and Indonesia " has the 
full support of the United States. While it lacks 
certain provisions that my delegation would like 
to have seen included, this resolution adequately 
reflects those progressive elements on which we 
believe general agreement could be reached at this 

I will comment only briefly on the details of the 
text. However, I do wish to point out that it 
represents a compromise and, as such, a delicate 
balance which we trust will not be upset by the 
discussions here today. 

We believe that the extension of tlie Agency's 
mandate for 3 years is realistic. The United 
States is pai-ticularly pleased that this resolution 
calls for appropriate action with regard to the 
pressing need for a rectification of the relief rolls. 

It is the sincere hope and intention of the United 
States, as a member of the PCC, that in its further 
etTorts tlie Commission will seek the just and 
peaceful implementation of paragraph 11 of Reso- 
lution 19i (III) and will find that the states 
principally concerned are willing to face the prob- 
lem in a spirit of acconunodation. It should not 
be overlooked that the PCC already has done 
much constructive work in identifying and evalu-

ating the properties left by some of the Palestine 

We are hopeful that the good wishes of all mem- 
ber states -will go to the PCC in its further search 
for realistic and constructive forward steps. 

In concluding these brief remarks let me obsei-ve 
that the general tenor of tliis debate has indicated 
the great desire of the majority of United Nations 
members to do something positive, to do some- 
thing promptly, about this problem. The United 
States is convinced that something can be done. 
We must not allow ourselves to fall into an atti- 
tude of listless resignation. It is therefore our 
hope that during the coming months members 
will actively assist, in every appropriate way, in 
the search for a just and peaceful solution. My 
delegation also fervently hopes that member states 
will underline the support, so widely voiced here, 
for tlie continuation of UNRWA by substantially 
increased pledges of financial support for the

United Nations Proclaims Declaration 
of Rights of Child 

FoUowing is a statement rrwde in Committee 
HI {Social, HimrMnitarian, and Cultural) on Sep- 
tember 28 hy Charles W. Anderson, Jr., U.S. Rep- 
resentative to the General Assemhly, together with 
the text of the Declaration of the Rights of the 
Child proclmmed in plenary session on November 


U.S. delegation press release 3230 

Tlie question of the Draft Declaration of the 
Eights of the Child has already been considered in 
the United Nations for many years — by the Social 
Commission, the Economic and Social Council, and 
the Commission on Human Rights. Tliere has 
finally emerged the draft declaration which the 
2Sth session of the Economic and Social Council 
has transmitted for our consideration.^ 

The drafting of tliis declaration has taken a 
good deal of time and has, as Ambassador L<)pez 
[Salvador P. Lopez, Pliilippines] pointed out at 
our last meeting [September 25], already involved 
tlie ellorts of 28 nations. I am liopcful Ihat it will

Department of Sfofe Buffefi'n 

be possible for this coininitt<H» to complete consid- 
eration of the declaration at this session. 

In my view the declaration does not raise such 
problems as to make the goal of its early comple- 
tion unattainable. The statements which were 
made last Friday underline the basic agreement 
which exists among us on this point. And cer- 
tainly we are all agreed on the importance of the 
declaration itself. It seems to me, therefore, that 
the Third Committee, in having the opportunity 
to complete the declaration this j'ear, can make a 
tremendous contribution to the betterment of the 
world's children. Moreover, to complete the dec- 
laration at this session can only reflect great credit 
upon the Third Committee itself and upon the 
General Assembly as a whole. 

The Geneva Declaration of the Eights of the 
Child, adopted by the League of Nations in 1924, 
was the first collective expression by the world 
connnunity of its concern for children. It was to 
bring this declaration up to date that the Social 
Commission of the United Nations undertook its 
reexamination in 1947. Tlie 1924 declaration was 
short and concise. These are qualities which we 
feel might be maintamed. The draft declaration 
which has been transmitted to us by the Economic 
and Social Council contains all the basic elements 
relating to the well-being of children. It has not, 
however, succeeded in retaining the qualities of 
brevity and conciseness which we would like to see. 
A declaration should contain principles only, and 
these principles should be set fortli in simple, clear 
langujige which can be easily understood by every- 
one. These principles should not be obscured by 
a detailed elaboration of the application of each 

Madam Chairman, my delegation can in fact 
accept the Draft Declaration of the Eights of the 
Child in the form it has been transmitted to us. 
We shall, nevertheless, give careful consideration 
to those proposals made by other delegations with 
I view to arriving at as clear and concise an ex- 
pression as possible of the principles now embodied 
in that declaration. My distinguislied colleague 
from the United Kingdom, Lady Petri e, alluded 
lust Friday to the statement made before the 28th 
session of the Council by Miss Moser of the Inter- 
national Union for Child Welfare. Miss Moser, 
you will recall, said that the draft declaration now 
before us is six times longer than the 1924 Geneva 
declaration. Slie went on to say that the value of 

January 4, I960 

the 1924 declaration lay in its directness, brevity, 
and acceptability. In associating ourselves with 
the views expressed by the United Kingdom dele- 
gate and Miss Moser, wo remain confident that it 
will be possible for this committee to arrive at a 
text which will both universally commend itself 
for the thoughts whicli it embodies and for the 
clarity with which these thoughts are expressed. 

Eleven years ago the General Assembly adopted 
the Universal Declaration of Human Eights. 
That declaration took a long time in drafting and 
was not adopted without a good deal of debate. 
At that time there wei-e those, Madam Chainnan, 
who deprecated the value of that declaration on 
the basis that, since it was no more than a declara- 
tion and therefore had no legally binding force 
on member states, it would not be of any practical ' 
use. The short history of the Universal Declara- 
tion of Himian Eights has proven these views to 
be mistaken. The Universal Declaration of Hu- 
man Eights, altliough of course not binding in 
law on states members, has had an influence ex- 
ceeding perhaps even the highest expectations of 
those who were its most ardent advocates. The 
declaration has served both as an example and as 
a goal. But, more than that, it has also been in- 
corporated in the constitutions of several coun- 
tries represented in this chamber. It has served 
as a model for national legislation. It has even 
been cited in court decisions. In sum, the Univer- 
sal Declaration of Human Eights has been a very 
powerful influence in advancing human rights in 
many countries. 

Madam Chairman, there can be no question as 
to the contribution such a declaration as the Draft 
Declaration of the Eights of the Child can make. 
Fii-st, adopting it, we can reaffirm the fundamental 
conviction of all of us that mankind owes the 
child the best it can give. Second, having seen 
the moral impact on the world which the Uni%'ei"sal 
Declaration of Human Eights has had, we can 
reasonably hope that the draft declaration can 
reinforce some of the principles contained in the 
Universal Declaration of Human Eights. And 
finally, in time to come, like the Universal Decla- 
ration, the Draft Declaration of the Eights of 
the Child will serve as a model for national legis- 
lation and as a guide for action to be taken on a 
national and local level with respect to the well- 
being of children. 

You can depend on the full cooperation of my 



delegation, Madam Chairman, in reaching lan- 
guage which will be acceptable to all, concise, 
meaningful, and of which we can all be proud. 

morally, spiritually and socially in a healthy and normal 
manner and in conditions of freedom and dignity. In 
the enactment of laws for this purpose, the best interests 
of the child shall be the paramount consideration. 


Declaration of the Rights of the Child 

"Whereas the peoples of the United Nations have, in the 
Charter, reaffirmed their faith in fundamental human 
rights and in the dignity and worth of the human person, 
and have determined to promote social progress and better 
standards of life in larger freedom, 

Whereas the United Nations has, in the Universal Decla- 
ration of Human Rights, proclaimed that everyone is en- 
titled to all the rights and freedoms set forth therein, 
without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, 
language, religion, political or other opinion, national or 
social origin, property, birth or other status, 

Whereas the child, by reason of his physical and mental 
immaturity, needs special safeguards and care, including 
appropriate legal protection, before as well as after birth. 

Whereas the need for such special safeguards has been 
stated in the Geneva Declaration of the Rights of the 
Child of 1924, and recognized in the Universal Declaration 
of Human Rights and in the statutes of specialized agen- 
cies and international organizations concerned with the 
welfare of children. 

Whereas mankind owes to the child the best it has to

The General AssemMy 

Proclaims this Declaration of the Rights of the Child 
to the end that he may have a happy childhood and enjoy 
for liis own good and for the good of society the rights 
and freedoms herein set forth, and calls ui)on parents, 
upon men and women as individuals, and upon voluntary 
organizations, local autliorities and national Governments 
to recognize these rights and strive for their observance 
by legislative and other measures progressively taken in 
accordance with the following principles : 

Principle 1 

The child shall enjoy all the rights set forth in this 
Declaration. Every child, without any exception what- 
soever, shall be entitled to these rights, without distinc- 
tion or discrimination on account of race, colour, sex, 
language, religion, political or other opinion, national or 
social origin, property, birth or other status, whether of 
himself or of his family. 

Principle 2 

The child shall enjoy special protection, and shall he 
given opportunities and facilities, by law and by other 
means, to enable him to develop physically, mentally.

Principle S 

The child shall be entitled from his birth to a name and 
a nationality. 

Principle 4 

The child shall enjoy the benefits of social security. 
He shall be entitled to grow and develop in health ; to 
this end, special care and protection shall be provided 
both to him and to his mother, including adequate pre- 
natal and post-natal care. The child shall have the right 
to adequate nutrition, housing, recreation and medical 

Principle 5 

The child who is physically, mentally or socially handi- 
capped shall be given the special treatment, education 
and care required by his particular condition. 

Principle 6 

The child, for the full and harmonious development of 
his personality, needs love and understanding. He shall, 
wherever possible, grow up in the care and under the re- 
sponsibility of his parents, and, in any, in an atmos- 
phere of affection and of moral and material security ; a 
child of tender years shall not, save in exceptional cir- 
cumstances, be separated from his mother. Society and 
the public authorities shall have the duty to extend par- 
ticular care to children without a family and to those 
without adequate means of support. Payment of State 
and other assistance towards the maintenance of children 
of large families is desirable. 

Principle 7 

The child is entitled to receive education, which shall 
be free and compulsory, at least in the elementary stages. 
He shall be given an education which will promote his 
general culture, and enable him, on a basis of equal op- 
portunity, to develop his abilities, his individual judge- 
ment, and his sense of moral and .social responsibility, and 
to become a useful member of society.

Western Heads of State and Government Meet at Paris 

Following are texts of frco communiques issued 
at Paris an December 21 at the close of the meet- 
ing of the Heads of State and Government of 
France, Germany, the United Kingdo^n^ and the 
United States, lohich was held at Paris and. 
Raurnhvuillet December 19-21, together with the 
text of a letter from President Eisenhoioer to 
Soviet Premier Nihita S. Khrushchev, proposing 
an East-West stimmit meeting. 


Press release 866 dated December 21 

The Heads of State and Government have dis- 
cussed the important changes tliat have taken 
place in the international economic situation. 
Kecotrnizing the great economic progress of West- 
em Europe, they have agreed that virtually all 
of the industrialized part of tlie free world is now 
in a position to devote its energies in increased 
measure to new and iniix>i-tant tasks of coopera- 
tive endeavor with the object of: (A) Furthering 
the development of the less developed countries, 
and (B) pursuing trade policies direct-ed to tlie 
sound use of economic resources and the mainte- 
nance of harmonious international relations, thus 
contributing to growth and stability in the world 
economy and to a general improvement in the 
standard of living. In their view these coopera- 
tive principles should also govern the discussions 
on commercial problems arising from the existence 
of European economic regional organizations, 
which are or will be constituted within the frame- 
work of the General Agreement on Tariffs and 
Trade, such as the European Economic Com- 
munity and the European Free Trade Association. 
Their relations both with other countries and with 
each other should be discussed in this spirit. 

The Heads of State and Government, recog- 

ianiiaty 11, I960 

nizing that the metliod of furthering prin- 
ciples requires intensive study, have agreed to 
call an informal meeting to be held in I'aris in 
the near future. They suggest that the membei's 
and participants of the Executive Committee of 
the OEEC [Organization for European Economic 
Cooperation] and the governments whose na- 
tionals are members of the Steering Board for 
Trade of the OEEC should be represented at 
this meeting. 

It is proposed that an objective of such a gi'oup 
should be to consider the need for and methods 
of continuing consultations dealing with the 
above-mentioned problems. 


Presa release 869 dated December 21 

The President of the United States of America, 
the President of the French Republic, the Prime 
Minister of the United Kingdom and the Chan- 
cellor of the Federal Republic of Germany met in 
Paris and at Rambouillet on the 19th, 20th and 
21st of December, 1959 and exchanged views on 
various subjects of common interest. 

In the course of these meetings consideration 
was given to the views expressed by the member 
governments of the North Atlantic Treaty Organ- 
ization at the meeting of the Council held in Paris 
from the 15th to the 17th of December.^ 

Among the subjects discussed were East-West 
relations, disarmament and problems relating to 
Germany including Berlin. On the last point the 
Heads of State and Government reaffirmed the 
principles set forth in the Four Power communi- 
que of December 1-1, 1958,'- and in the declaration

of the North Atlantic Council of December 16th, 
1958 on Berlin.^ 

The Heads of State and Government agreed on 
the desirability of a Four Power conference with 
the Chairman of the Council of Ministers of the 
Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The pur- 
pose of this conference would be to consider a 
number of questions of mutual concern. Presi- 
dent Eisenhower, General de Gaulle and Mr. Mac- 
millan have sent letters to Mr. Khrushchev pro- 
posing such a meeting beginning on the 27th of 
April in Paris. These letters were delivered in 
Moscow this morning. The texts are being im- 
mediately released. The Heads of State and 
Government have agreed on the procedures to be 
followed in preparation for the proposed meeting 
and have issued the necessary directives to this 

The North Atlantic Council will be informed 
of the results of the present conversations at the 
Ministerial meeting which will take place on the 
22nd of December, and the Council will be regu- 
larly consulted during the course of the prepara- 
tory work. 

The Heads of State and Government express the 
hope that the proposed conference will contribute 
to the strengthening of peace with justice. 


December 21, 1959 

Dear Mr. Chairman : As you are aware I have 
just met with President de Gaulle and Prime Min- 
ister Macmillan. Among the subjects we dis- 
cussed was the possibility of our having a meeting 
with you to consider international questions of 
mutual concern. 

We agreed that it would be desirable for the 
four Heads of State or Government to meet to- 
gether from time to time in each other's countries 
to discuss the main problems affecting the attain- 
ment of peace and stability in the world. I there- 
fore wish now to express my readiness to meet with 
you, President de Gaulle and Prime Minister 
Macmillan at the earliest feasible time. In view 
of the engagements of all of us, as tliey are known 
to me, we had thought that the opening date for 

the proposed conference could be April 27 and that 
Paris would be the most appropriate place for the 
first meeting. 

I very much hope that this proposal is accept- 
able to you.

sion of the Ministerial Meeting of the North 
Atlantic Council.^ 

Press release 871 dated December 22 

The North Atlantic Council completed its 
Ministerial Session on December 22. 

The Council heard an account by the Minister 
for Foreign AiJairs of France, speaking on behalf 
of the Governments of the United States, France, 
the United Kingdom and the Federal Republic 
of Germany, of the conclusions reached by the 
Heads of State and of Government during their 
discussions in Paris from the 19th to the 21st of 
December in regard to East-West relations. 
During the detailed discussions which followed, 
the Council recognized that the views expressed 
by the four Governments fully reflected those 
which had been expounded by its members on 
December 15th. The Council gives its full support 
to the position adopted by the four Governments. 

The Council takes note of the arrangements pro- j 
posed to the Soviet Government for the opening 
of negotiations in Paris in April. It agrees with 
the arrangements made to secure full consultation 
with all member Governments during the prepara- 
tion of these negotiations and undertakes to play 
a constructive part in ensuring their success. It 
instructed the Permanent Council to ensure that 
member Governments are informed and consulted, 
and to make the necessary arrangements to that

tions and agreement, the Council thinks it neces- 
sary to reaflirm the principles whicli it set out in 
its statement on Berlin on the ICth of December, 
1958,^ and to emphasize once again that the Alli- 
ance must remain vigilant and strong. The Coun-

Council as Supreme Allied Commander, Atlantic, 
to succeed Admiral Wright. This request Wiis 
transmitted to the President of the United States, 
who informed the Council of his nomination of 
Admiral Dennison for consideration by the Coun-

White House (New Delhi), press release dated December 10 (as

It is with a sense of Iiigh distinction that I 
accepted the invitation to address you. I deem 
this a great personal honor and a bright symbol 
of the genuine friendship between the peoples you 
and I represent. 

I bring to this nation of 400 million assurance 
from my own people that they feel that the welfare 
of America is bound up with the welfare of India. 
America shares with India the deep desire to live 
in freedom, human dignity, and peace with

achievements of men of science d.uring recent 
decades. The issue placed squarely before us to- 
day is the purpose for which we use science. 

Before us we see long years of what can be a 
new era — mankind in each year reaping a richer 
liarvest from the fields of earth, gaining a moi"e 
sure mastery of elemental power for human bene- 
fit, sharing an expanding commerce in goods and 
in knowledge and wisdom, dwelling together in 

But history portrays a world too often tragically 
divided by misgi\nng and mistrust and quarrel. 
Time and again govenm:ients have abused the 
fields of earth by staining them with blood and 
scarring them with the weapons of war. They 
have used a scientific mastery over nature to win 
a dominance over others — even made commerce an 
instrument of exploitation. 

The most heartening, hopeful phenomenon in 
the world today is that people have experienced a 
great awakening. They se« the evils of the past 
as crimes against the moral law, injuring the of- 
fender as well as the victim. They recognize that 
only imder the rule of moral law can all of us 
realize our deepest and noblest asi)irations. 

One blunt question I put to you and to all — 
everyone, everywhere — who, like myself, share re- 
sponsibility assigned to us by our people: Must 
we continue to live with prejudices, practices, and 
policias that will condemn our children and our 
children's children to live helple.s,sly in the pattern 
of the past — awaiting possibly a time of war- 
borne obliteration ? 

We all fervently pray not. Indeed, there can 
be no statesmanship in any person of responsibility 
who does not concur in this worldwide prayer.

Moving Into a Better Era 

Our hope is that we are moving into a better 
era. For my part, I sliall do all I can, as one 
human working with other humans, to push 
toward peace, toward fi-eedoni, toward dignity and 
a wortliy future for every man and woman and 
child in tlie world. 

If we — and especially all those occupying posi- 
tions of re-sijonsibility — give all that is witliin us 
to this cause, the generations that follow us will 
call us blessed. Should we sliirk the task or 
pursue the ways of war — now become ways to 
annihilation and race suicide — there may be no 
generations to follow us. 

I come here representing a nation that wants not 
an acre of anotlier people's land; that seeks no 
control of another people's government ; that pur- 
sues no program of expansion in commerce or 
politics or power of any sort at another people's 
expense. It is a nation ready to cooperate toward 
achievement of mankind's deep, et-emal aspira- 
tions for peace and freedom. 

And I come here as a friend of India, speaking 
for 180 million friends of India. In fulfilling a 
desire of many years I pay, in pei-son, America's 
tribute to the Indian people, to their culture, to 
their progress, and to their strength among the 
independent nations. 

All humanity is in debt to this land. But we 
Americans have, with you, a special community of 
interest. You and we from our first days have 
sought, by national policy, the expansion of 
democracy. You and we, peopled by many strains 
and races speaking many tongues, worshipping in 
many ways, have each acliieved national strength 
out of diversity. And you and we never boast 
that ours is the only way. We are conscious of 
our weaknesses and our failings. We both seek 
the improvement and betterment of all our citi- 
zens by assuring that the state will serve, not mas- 
ter, its own people or any other people. Above 
all, our basic goals are the same. 

Ten years ago your distinguished Prime Min- 

ister [Jawaharlal Nehru], when I was his host at 
Columbia I'niversity in New York, said: 

I'olitlcal subjection, racial luequallty, economic 
misery— these are the evils we have to remove If we 
would assure peace. 

Our Republic, since its founding, has been com- 
mitted to a relentless, ceaseless fight agauist those 
same three evils: political .subjection, racial in- 
equality, economic misery. Not always has 
America enjoyed instant success in a particular 
attack on them. By no means has victory been 
won over them, and indeed complete victory can 
never be won so long as human nature is not trans- 
formed. But in my country, through almost 200 
years, our most revered leaders have been those 
who have exhorted us to give of our lives and our 
fortunes to the vanquishment of these evils. And 
in this effort for the good of all our people we 
shall not tire nor cease. 

Ten years have passed since Mr. Nehru spoke 
his words. The pessimist might say that not 
only do the three evils still infest the world — 
entrenched and manifold — but that they will 
never lose their virulence. And the future, he 
might conclude, will be a repetition of the past — 
the world stumbling from crisis in one place to 
crisis in another, given no respite from anxiety 
and tension, forever fearful that inevitably some 
aggression will blaze into global war. 

Thus might the pessimist speak. And were 
we to examine only the record of failure and 
frustration, we all would be compelled to agree 
with him. 

We Americans have known anxiety and suf- 
fering and tragedy, even in the decade just past. 
Tens of thousands of our families paid a heavy 
price that the United Nations and the rule of 
law might be sustained in the Republic of Korea. 
In millions of our homes there has been, in each, 
the vacant chair of absent men, a son who, per- 
forming his duty, gave some of the years of his 
youth that successful aggression might not come 
to pass. The news from near and distant places 
that has reached us in America through these 10 
yeai-s has been marked by a long series of harsh 

These alarms invariably had their .source in 
the aggressive intentions of an alien philosophy 
backed by greiit military strength. Faced with 
this fact, we in America have felt it necessary to 
make clear our own determination to resi-st ag- 
gression through the provision of adequate armed 

January 11, 7960 


forces. These forces serve us and those of our 
friends and allies who, like us, have perceived 
the danger. But they so serve for defensive pur- 
poses only. In producing this strength we be- 
lieve we have made a necessary contribution to a 
stable peace, for the present and for the future 
as well. 

Historically and by instinct the United States 
has always repudiated and still repudiates the 
settlement by force of international issues and 
quarrels. Though we will do our best to provide 
for free-world security, we continue to urge the 
reduction of armaments on the basis of eifective 
reciprocal verification. 

And contrasting with some of our disappoint- 
ments of the past decade and the negative purposes 
of security establishments, Americans have par- 
ticipated also in triumphant works of world prog- 
ress, political, technical, and material. We believe 
these works support the concept of the dignity 
and freedom of man. These hearten America 
that the years ahead will be marked by like and 
greater works. And America watches with 
friendly concern the valiant efforts of other na- 
tions for a better life, particularly those who have 
newly achieved their independence. 

Tribute to Indian People 

Ten years ago India had just achieved independ- 
ence, wealthy in courage and determination but 
beset with problems of a scale and depth and num- 
bers scarcely paralleled in modern liistory. Not 
even the most optimistic of onlookers would then 
have predicted the success you have enjoyed. 

Today India speaks to the other nations of the 
world with greatness of conviction and is heard 
with greatness of respect. The near conclusion 
of her second 5-year program is proof that the 
difficulty of a problem is only the measure of its 
challenge to men and women of determined will. 
India is a triumph that offsets tlie world's failures 
of the past decade, a triumph that, as men read our 
history a century from now, may offset them all. 

India has paced and spurred and inspired men 
on other continents. I^et anyone take a map of 
the earth and. place on it a flag wherever political 
subjection has ended, racial prejudice been re- 
duced, economic misery at least paitially relieved 
during the pasl 10 years. He will find evidence 
in the cluster of these flags that the 10 years past 

may well have been the 10 most fruitful years in 
the age-old fight against the three evils. 

Because of these 10 years, today our feet are 
set on the road leading to a better life for all men. 

'V\niat blocks us that Ave do not move forward 
mstantly into an era of plenty and peace? 

The answer is obvious : We have not yet solved 
the problem of fear among the nations. The con- 
sequence is that not one government can exploit 
the resources of its own territory solely for the 
good of its people. 

Governments are burdened with sterile expendi- 
tures, preoccupied with attainment of a defensive 
military posture that grows less meaningful 
against today's weapons carriers. 

Much of the world is trapped in the same vicious 
circle. Weakness in arms often invites aggres- 
sion or subversion or externally manipulated revo- 
lutions. Fear inspired in others by the increasing 
militaiy strength of one nation spurs them to con- 
centrate still more of their resources on weapons 
and warlike measures. The arms race becomes 
more universal. Doubt as to the true purpose of 
these weapons intensifies tension. Peoples are 
robbed of opportunity for their own peaceful de- 
velopment. The hunger for a peace of justice 
and good will inevitably becomes more intense. 

Search for Disarmament 

Controlled, universal disarmament is the im- 
perative of our time. The demand for it by the 
hundreds of millions whose chief concern is the 
long future of themselves and their children will, 
I hope, become so universal and so insistent that 
no man, no government anywhere, can witlistand 

My Nation is committed to a ceaseless search 
for ways through which genuine disarmament 
can be reached. And my Government, even as I 
said more than 6 years ago, in April of 1953,^ still 
"is ready to ask its people to join with all nations 
in devoting a substantial percentage of the savings 
achieved by disarmament to a fund for world aid 
and reconstruction." 

But armaments of themselves do not cause wars; 
wars are caused by men. 

And men ai-e influenced by a fixation on the past, 
the dead past, witli all its abuses of power, its 
misuses of responsibility, all its futile convictions 
that force can solve any problem.

Department of State Bulletin 

In the name of Immanity, can wo not join in 
a o-year or a 50-year plan against mistrust 
and niisgivin<» imcl lixations on the wronjjs of tho 
past? Can we not apply ourselves to the re- 
moval or reduction of the causes of tension that 
exist in the world? All these are the creations 
of governments, cherished and nourished by gov- 
ernments. The peoples of the world would never 
feel them if they were given freedom from propa- 
ganda and pressure. 

Permit mo to cite two simple examples from my 
own experience. As President of the United 
States, I welcomed into our Union last year a new 
sovereign State — Hawaii — peopled by all the races 
of the e^irth, men and women of that new State 
having their ancestral homes in Asia and Africa 
and Europe, the two Americas, the islands of the 
earth. Those peoples are of every creed and color, 
yet they live together in neighborly friendliness, 
in mutual trust, and each can achieve his own 
good by helping achieve the good of all. 

Hawaii cries insistently to a divided world that 
all our differences of race and origin are less than 
the grand and indestructible unity of our common 
brotherhood. The world should take time to lis- 
ten with attentive ear to Hawaii. 

As president of Columbia University, every 
year we welcomed to its campus [young people] 
from every continent, from almost every nation 
that flew a flag — and some tribes and colonies not 
yet free. In particular there still lives in my 
memory, because of their eagerness and enthusi- 
asm for learning, the presence of hundreds of 
young people from India and China and Japan 
and the other Asian countries that studied among 
us, detaclied from any mutual prejudice or any 
fixation over past wrongs — indeed, these vices are 
not easily discernible among the young of any 

These two simple things from my own experi- 
ence convince me that much of the world's fear, 
suspicion, prejudices, can be obliterated. Men and 
women everywhere need only to lift up their eyes 
to the heights that can be achieved together and, 
ignoring what has been, push together for what 
can be. 

Xot one wrong of years ago that still rankles, 
not one problem that confronts us today, not one 
transitoiy profit that might be taken from an- 
other's weakness, should distract us from the pur- 
suit of a goal that dwarfs every problem and 
wrong of the past. 

January II, I960 

We have the strength and the means and the 
knowledge. May God inspire us to strive for the 
worldwide will and the wisdom that are now our 
first needs. 

In this great crusade, from the history of your 
own nation, I know India will ever be a leader. 


White House (New Delhi) press release dated December 11 (as 
delivered text) 

I am signally honored by the invitation to join 
President [Rajendra] Prasad at the opening of 
the World Agriculture Fair — the first such fair as 
this ever held. And it is entirely right that it be 
held here in India. For this nation recognizes in 
agriculture the fundamental occupation of man 
and the chief assurance of better living for its 

My own country was quick to accept when in- 
vited to participate in this historic event. And 
today I am particularly honored that India's Chief 
of State will be with me when, in a few minutes, 
I officially open the United States exhibit at the 
fair. Indeed, the occasion of this fair gave me 
the very fuiest reason I could think of to make 
this the time of the visit to India that I had long 
determined upon. 

At this American exhibit all visitors can see 
how we Americans have managed the soil of our 
land so that our people might live well for them- 
selves and have enough food left over to help 
others. Our way is not necessarily the best, even 
for us, but here we depict in the American exhibit 
American agriculture as it is. We do have a 
natural pride in what we have accomplished by a 
creative imion of human spirit, fertile earth, and 
inventive science. But, beyond this, we see in mod- 
ern agriculture a most effective instrument for a 
better life among all men. "Mela USA" points 
up its use for that high purpose. 

On the personal side, I visit this fair with keen 
interest. As a boy and young man I grew up in 
the heart of the American farmland. A long- 
held ambition during my professional years — not 
always too well concealed — has been to return to 
the farm. And I plan to be a farmer — when my 
present form of occupation comes to a close. So, 
I have a keen interest in spending a bit of time at 
this fair, where so many nations present their 
achievements in methods and techniques and ways 
of agriculture. I shall see here much that is new 
to me. Many of these things are probably im- 


proveraents on what I have seen or done in the 
past, and I hope I am still not too old to learn. 

For a moment I hope you will indulge me as 
I suggest some thoughts on liow f ootl can help all 
of us achieve better lives in a world of justice and 

Today we have the scientific capacity to abolish 
from the world at least this one evil; we can 
eliminate the hunger that emaciates the bodies of 
children, that scars the souls of their parents, that 
stirs the passions of those who toil endlessly and 
earn only scraps. 

Men, right now, possess the knowledge and the 
resources for a successful worldwide war against 
hunger — the sort of war that dignifies and exalts 
human beings. The different exhibits in this 
whole fair are clear proof of that statement. 

Theme of American Exhibit 

The call to that genuinely noble war is enun- 
ciated in tlie tlieme of the American exhibit: 
"Food — Family — Friendship — Freedom." 

Into these four words are compressed the daily 
needs, the high purposes, the deep feelings, the 
ageless aspirations that unite Indians and Ameri- 
cans under one banner — the banner of human 

Here are four words that are mightier than arms 
and bombs, miglitier tlian machines and money, 
mightier than any empire that ruled the past or 
tlireatens the future. 

Here are four words that can lift the souls of 
men to a high plane of mutual effort, sustained 
effort, the most rewarding effort that can be 
proposed to mankind. 

First — Food — that our bodies may be fit for 
every task and duty and service; our minds free 
from tlie fear of hunger; our eyes, undimmed by 
tlie tragedies of famine, searching out new hori- 
zons; our aspirations not frustrated by failure of 
crop or catastroplie of weather. 

Family — that in our homes there may be decent 
living and bright hope, cliildren no longer doomed 
to misei-y in peace and sudden death in war, their 
elders no longer biokon by want and sorrow 
beyond their control to mend or cure. 

Friendship — that among all the peoples of 
earth tlie darkness of ignorance and fear and 
distrust will dissolve in the light of knowledge 
and understanding. The time has come wlien we 

must all live together for our mutual betterment 
or we shall all suffer harsh, possibly the final, 

Freedom — that on all continents and islands of 
the earth every man and woman of good will and 
good life may make the proudest of human boasts : 
"I am free, slave to no tyranny imposed by other 
men, by the accident of birth, by the whims of 

Presenting the Role of Agriculture 

The American exhibit at this fair presents the 
role we feel agriculture can play in furtherance of 
a healthy, fruitful, peaceful world where the 
families of all nations can live in freedom from 
fear of famine and war. 

In no wise whatsoever is the American exhibit 
an attempt to portray our agricultiu-e as 
superior to any other. Through centuries of liv- 
ing with the soil and streams, the environment and 
climate of their own lands, people have learned 
adjustments and adaptations peculiarly suited to 
their own circumstances. 

What we do present here are ways in which 
American farmere multiplied their productivity, 
the fertility of their fields, the vigor and the 
value of their livestock. 

In this exhibit visitors will see the teclmiques, 
the changes in old methods, the applications of 
new discoveries that have best served America's 
particular requirements. Modified to fit your 
needs and your circumstances, it is our hope that 
they might be of value to you. 

Of course, they cannot work miracles overnight, 
in any land. But, with each harvest, they may 
help to bring every people using them closer to a 
dependable self-sufficiency. 

Food for Peace 

Early this year, I set in motion a new program 
"to explore anew with other surplus-producing 
nations all pi'acf ical means of utilizing the various 
agricultural surpluses of each in the interest of 
reinforcing peace and the well-being of friendly 
peoples througliovit the world — in short, using 
food for peace."' •'

Press release 856 dated December 15 

At the invitation of the Government of India, 
the President of the United States of America 
paid a visit to India, lasting from December 9 to 
14. President Eisenhower received on his arrival 
in New Delhi a warm and cordial welcome, marked 
by popular enthusiasm and gooti will. Througli- 
out his staj' and wherever he went, these friendly 
manifestations of good will were repeated by mil- 
lions of Delhi citizens and others who had come 
to Delhi to join in this welcome. 

During his strenuous four-day visit, President 
Eisenhower fulfilled a number of public engage- 
ments. He addressed members of the Indian 
Parliament, received an honorary doctorate of 
laws from the University of Delhi, participated in 
the inauguration of the World Agriculture Fair, 
attended a civic reception on behalf of the city of 
Delhi and visited rural areas near Agra. In thus 
fulfilling a desire of many years, the President was 
deeply touched by the warmth of the welcome ex- 
tended to him by the people of India, by the gen- 
erous hospitality of the Government and the 
excellence of the arrangements made for him. 

The President was impressed by the vitality of 
India's democratic institutions, of Parliament, 
press and university, and by India's strength of 
spirit combined with practical idealism. He saw 

how India, like the United States, has created na- 
tional strength out of diversity, neither country 
boasting that tiieirs is the only way. He confinned 
the bond of shared ideals i)etween India and the 
ITnited States, their identity of objectives, and 
their common quest for just and lasting peace. 

President Eisenhower met tlie Pre,sident of 
India, the Prime Minister and other members of 
the Government of India. He and the Prime Min- 
ister had intimate talks in wliicli tliey reviewed 
the world situation and exchanged views on mat- 
ters of mutual interest. Among other things, the 
President told the Prime .Minister tliat he was 
happy to report to him that all the leaders of the 
countries he had visited during liis recent jouniey 
had expressed to him the hope tluit [jrobleins in- 
volving one form or another of conflict of interest 
or views could be solved by peaceful methods of 
conciliation. He said that this was true in Italy, 
Turkey, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. The Presi- 
dent found this heartening and in harmony with 
his own thinking. He did not wish in any way 
to minimize the importance of or the inherent 
difficulties involved in some of the problems. The 
spirit he found was good and forward-looking. 

The Prime Minister expressed gratification and 
pleasure at President Eisenhower's visit to India, 
and thanked him for the warmth and generosity 
of the sentiments he had expressed. He assured 
the President of the wholehearted support of In- 
dia in his unremitting efforts in the cause of world 
peace. India hereelf is dedicated to a policy of 
peace and has been steadfast in her conviction 
that differences between nations should be i-e- 
solved peacefully by the method of negotiation 
and settlement and not by resort to force. She 
has consistently pureued this policy in relation 
to problems of this nature affecting her and other 
countries. The Prime Minister gave President 
Eisenhower a review of the major aspects of some 
of these problems and of recent developments in re- 
gard to them. The Prime Minister also referi-ed 
to the great effort that India was making, through 
her five-3'ear plans, to develop the country, both 
in regard to agriculture and industrj', so as to

relations existing between their two countries, and 
their firm belief that their common ideals and ob- 
jectives and their quest for peace will ensure the 
maintenance and development of the strong ties

dent Eisenhower's visit to India has afforded the 
welcome opportunity of a meeting between the 
Presidents of the two countries, and for the re- 
newal of the friendship between him and the 
Prime Minister of India. He was happy to meet 
other members of the Government, as well as 
men and women, young and old, in city and vil-

which they feel for the people of the United 


White House (Tehran) press release dated December 14 (as 
delivered text) 

The honor you do me with this reception in your 
handsome new Senate building is a clear indica- 
tion of the high mutual regard which the Iranian 
and American peoples have for each other. 

Personally, I am deeply touched by your wel- 

We know that people, by meeting together, even 
if for a limited time, can strengthen their mutual 
understanding. To increase this mutual under- 
standing has been one of the purposes of my trip 
to Iran, as it has been to the other coimtries in 
which I have stopped along the way. 

My conversation this morning with His Imperial 
Majesty, this convocation, my knowledge of the 
state of relations between our two countries — and 
indeed, the cordial warmth of the reception that I 
received upon the streets of your beautiful city — 
have all been heartening assurances that our two 
countries stand side by side. This visit reinforces 
my conviction that we stand together. We see eye 
to eye when it comes to the fundamentals which 
govern the relations between men and between 

The message I bring you from America is this : 
We want to work with you for peace and friend- 
ship, in freedom. I emphasize freedom, because 
without it there can be neither true peace nor last- 
ing friendship among peoples. 

Consequently, Americans are dedicated to the 
improvement of the international climate in which 
we live. Though militarily we in America devote 
huge sums to malce certain of the security of our- 
selves and to assist our allies, we do not forget 
thal^ — in the long term — military strength alone 
will not bring about peace with justice. The 
spiritual and economic health of the free world 
must be likewise strengthened. 

Basic Aspirations of Humanity 

All of us realize that while we must, at what- 
ever cost, make freedom secure from any aggres- 
sion, we could still lose freedom should we fail 
to cooperate in progress toward achieving the 
basic aspirations of humanity. The world strug- 
gle in which we are engaged is many sided. In 
one aspect it is ideological, political, and military; 
in others it is both spiritual and economic. 

As I well know, you, and the people of Iran, 
are not standing on the sidelines in this struggle. 

Without flinching, you have borne the force 
of a powerful propaganda assault, at the same 
time that you have been working at improving the 
living standards in your nation. 

The people of Iran continue to demonstrate that 
quality of fortitude which has characterized the 
long annals of your history as a nation. I know I 
speak for the American people when I say we are 
proud to count so valiant a nation as our partner. 

Your ideals, expressed in the wise and mature 
literature of your people, are a source of enrich- 
ment to the culture of the world. By true coopera- 
tion with your friends — and among these America 
considers herself one — we can proceed together 
toward success in the struggle for peace and 

Through trust in one another, we can have trust 
in the fruitful outcome of our efforts together to 
build a brighter future. 

Tliis future — the world we will hand on to our 
children and to our grandchildren — must occupy 
our thinking and our planning and our working. 
The broad outline of our goal is, I think, clear to 
evei-yone — to achieve a just peace in freedom. 


Department of Stale Bulletin 

But peace will bo witliout real meaning — it may 
even be unattainable — until the peoples of the 
world have linally overcome the natural enemies of 
humanity — hunger, privation, ami disease. The 
iVmerican people have engaged considerable re- 
sources in this work. I am proud of the many 
dedicated American men and women who have 
gone out into the world with the single hope that 
they can ease the pain and want of othei-s. 

Some of them are at work in Iran, and I have 
heard that the people of Iran have found these 
efforts beneHcial. 

Of course, their work is effective only because 
the Government of Iran has sturdily shouldered 
its responsibilities for tlie development of the 
country. There are reports of significant accom- 
plishments throughout the length and breath of 
your land. 

Achieving an Agreement on Disarmament 

America rejoices with you that this is so. On the 
long and difficult climb on the road to true peace, 
the whole world must some day agree that suspi- 
cion and hate should be laid aside in the common 

Here, I think, is our central problem. I know 
that you, too, and all men of good will, are de- 
voting thought and energy to the practical and 
realistic steps to this great objective. 

One such practical step is, of course, an enforce- 
able agreement on disarmament, or, to be more 
exact, arms reduction. To achieve this, the govern- 
ments of the world have chosen a primary instru- 
ment, the United Nations. 

It could seem that, as the realities of the awful 
alternative to peace become clearer to all, signifi- 
cant progress in the safeguarded reduction of the 
arms burden can be made. To such a realistic be- 
ginning, there is no feasible alternative for the 

In the meantime, we cannot abandon our mutual 
effort to build barriers, such as the peaceful barrier 
of our Central Treaty Organization, against the 
persistent dangers of aggression and subversion. 
Tliis organization, CENTO, has no ulterior or 
concealed purpose; it exists only to provide 

Such an effort erects a shield of freedom for our 
honor and for our lives. With such a shield, we 
preserve the cherished values of our societies. 

To be sure, the people of Iran need no reminder 

of these simple facts. Only yesterday you cele- 
brated the anniversary of the day on which justice 
triumphed over force in Azerbaijan. The full 
weiglit of world public opinion, as represented in 
the United Nations, supported you in tliose difficult 
times. It will always support the rights of any 
people threatened by external aggression. 

Impulse Toward Rule of Law 

Justice — the rule of law — among nations has not 
yet been effectively established. But in almost 
every nation in the world there is a great awaken- 
ing to the need for such a development. Certainly 
this is true among the free nations. Because there 
is such an awakening, the act of any government 
contrary to the rights of mankind is quickly re- 
sented and keenly sensed by people everywhere. 

This is the wellspring of our hope. This is why 
we are right to believe as we do — despite centuries 
of human turmoil and conflict — that true peace 
can and will one day be realized. 

The impulse toward justice, toward the recogni- 
tion of the worth and dignity of each and every 
human being, will not be denied. This is the main- 
spring of the movement toward freedom and 

Now, may I offer my heartfelt thanks for the 
opportunity you have given me to speak to j'ou, 
and through you, the representatives of the people 
of Iran, to your entire nation. 

You have conferred upon me an honor which I 
shall always remember.

the admiration of the people of the United States 
for the brave stand of the Iranian people and Gov- 
ernment in the face of outside pressure.

White House (Athens) press release dated December 15 (as 
delivered text) 

I am greatly honored that I have been invited 
to speak before this distinguished Parliament. 
Greatness and grandeur are all about us — great- 
ness and grandeur of ideas and ideals that were 
born and fii-st enunciated nearby, of men foi'ever 
memorable who walked and lived here, of a peo- 
ple whose valor and vitality and wisdom are writ- 
ten large on the human record. 

Your present Government and its leaders, your 
distinguished Prime Minister, are producing a 
record of achievement that makes them worthy 
successors to their illustrious predecessors. 

I represent in this place 180 million men and 
women who with you of Greece share the golden 
legacy of culture and civilization bequeathed by 
your forebears to the Western World. We Ameri- 
cans, with you Greeks, are fellow heirs to the glory 
of Greece. 

In this city of Athens more than a score of cen- 
turies ago, democracy — in its principles and in 
its practices — first won the hearts and minds of 
men. This house of free representative govern- 
ment symbolizes the vigor of modem democracy 
in its ancient birthplace, demonstrates that tlie 
will of men to be free is im]5erishable. 

In our common dedication to the ideals of de- 
mocracy our two countries — America and 
Greece — feel a basic kinship. An ^Vmerican can 
feel as much at home here as in Washington 
or Abilene, my own village, or Brooklyn, just as 
Greeks quickly find themselves at home in those 
three places in America. 

Salute to Greek People 

To this Parliament I come with a message of 
admiration and respect from the American people 
to the Greek people, and for the light of inspira- 
tion that shone out, in our own day, to all the free 
world from this land and its islands. 

You have jjroved yourselves fearless in defense 
of your independence, tireless in your attack on 
the evils of hardship and privation, ready for sac- 
rifice that your children might enjoy a brighter 
day. And, l)eset with hardship and ditllculty at 
home, you joined in cooperation witli tlie other 
countries of the Atlantic Alliance for mutual de-

fense and security. Your cxpoditionnrj' force to 
Korea, by its valor and lieroism, Iiciped sustain 
tlie rule of law and the United Nations in that 
divided nation. 

The American people and, I am sure, all the 
free peoples of the world salute you, valiant and 
worthy heirs to the Greek traditions. 

Peace and Friendship in Freedom 

And now, briefly, permit me to speak on a cause 
close to my heart — close, I hope, to the hearts 
of all who believe in the brotherhood, the dignity, 
the divine origin and destiny of man as a child 
of God, created in His image. The cause is : Peace 
and friendship in freedom. 

The Greek and American peoples share a com- 
mon and deep devotion to peace. We share fur- 
ther the conviction that we must sustain the con- 
ditions imder which the goal of ^Jeace may be 
pui-sued efi'ectively. 

We must be strong militarily, economically — 
but above all, spiritually. By developing and 
jn-eserving such strength — by forever repudiating 
the use of aggressive force — we shall win the sort 
of peace we want, with friendship in freedom. 

I mean peace that is creative, dynamic, fostering 
a world climate that will relieve men and their 
governments of the intolerable burden of arana- 
ments, liberate them from the haunting fear of 
global war and imiversal death. 

I mean friendship that is spontaneous and warm, 
welling up from a deep conviction that all of us 
are more concerned with the bettering of our cir- 
cumstances, giving our children wider opportunity 
and brighter promise, than in destroying each 

I mean freedom in which, under the rule of 
law, every human will have the right and a fair 
chance to live his own life, to choose his own 
path, to work out his own destiny, that nations 
will be free from misgivings and mistrust, able 
to develop their resources for the gootl of their 

To this cause of peace and friendship in free- 
dom, Greeks are contributing all their hearts and 
minds and energies. Joined with the free men 
of the world, they can help mankind at long last 
to enjoy the fullness of life envisioned by the 
sages of ancient Greece. 

Honorable Members of Parliament, I want to 
assure you again of the very deep sense of distinc- 

tion that I feel in the invitation to you. 
I feel tliat hero I am with men who, like myself 
and all other Americans, love pe^ico and fi-eedom 
and want to work with you for it. 


Prese release 862 dated December 16 

On the occasion of his official visit to Greece 
on the 14th and 15th of December, the President 
of the United States, Mr. Dwight P:isenhower, 
concluded talks with the Prime Minister of Greece, 
Mr. Constantine Caramanlis. Present at the talks 
were the American Ambassador, Mr. Ellis O. 
Briggs, and the Under Secretary of State, Mr. 
Robert Murphy, and on the Greek side the Deputy 
Prime Minister, Mr. Panayotis Kanellopulos, and 
the Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. 
Constantine Tsatsos. 

The President expressed his warm appreciation 
of the hospitality extended by Their Majesties, 
King Paul and Queen Frederika, and of all the 
Greek people. 

The talks covered a wide range of general and 
specific topics of common interest to both coun- 
tries. Both countries affirmed their faith in the 
principles of the Charter of the United Nations 
and their staunch support of the objectives of 
the North Atlantic Treaty Organization which, 
based on the solidarity of its members, aim at the 
firm establishment of security and peace with 
justice. The relaxation of world tensions was 
discussed in this spirit. 

The Greek Prime Minister expressed his deep 
appreciation for the great endeavor for peace 
undeitaken by President Eisenhower. Both 
agreed that the consolidation of world peace must 
be pui-sued in such a way as to guarantee the in- 
dependence of all nations and the freedom of the 

Historic instances in which both countries stood 
side by side in hard stniggles were recalled. In 
this context the importance of Greece in the 
common defense effort was recognized. 

Oi)inions were exchanged concerning those parts 
of the world of particular interest to Greece. 
Careful account was taken of her special position 
in the Balkans. The general situation in this 
area, as well as in the Eastern Mediterranean, was 
examined. It was agreed that the two Govern- 

January ?J, J 960 


ments should exchange views on matters of mutual 
concern involving these areas. 

The Greek Prime Minister expressed the grati- 
tude of the Greek people for the enduring interest 
and help being extended by the American people. 
He also explained to the President the problems 
the country faces in seeking to raise the standard 
of living of the Greek people, and maintaining the 
obligations and responsibilities of its position in 
the defense structure of the free world. 

President Eisenhower, recognizing the special 
economic and social conditions of Greece, ex- 
pressed his admiration for the improvement being 
accomplished by the country, and reaffirmed the 
interest of the American people in the security 
and economic development of Greece generally. 

It was recognized that improvement in the 
standard of living in the economically less- 
developed countries constitutes a vital element in 
the consolidation of international peace. 

The conversations were held in an atmosphere 
of deep sincerity and warm cordiality, such as 
have traditionally characterized the relations of 
the two countries, and which were so happily 
confirmed by the visit to Greece of the President 
of the United States. 


Press release 884 dated December 17 

President Eisenhower and President [Habib] 
Bourguiba, accompanied by their advisers, met at 
La Marsa on December 17. 

The two Presidents reviewed in general terms 
the international situation in a spirit of frankness 
and cordiality. Their discussions centered on the 
necessity to continue the progress which is now 
being made towards strengthening of peace and 
the reduction of the causes of international tension. 

In this connection, they examined the situation 
created by the difficulties in Algeria. They agreed 
that the fact that a solution has not yet been 
achieved is a cause of grave concern. 

They agreed tliat the achievement of self- 
detennination by African and Asian people is one 
of the most important events of our times. Tliey 
welcomed the opportunity offered for the evolu- 
tion of new relationships and the improvement of 
old ones basetl on a common attachment to funda- 
mental principles of human rights and dignity. 

President Eisenhower and President Bourguiba 

expressed their conviction that the efforts by 
nations to consolidate the peace necessitate in- 
creased support from the more industrialized 
nations for countries in the course of developing 
their economies. 

The conversations between the two Presidents 
revealed a wide area of understanding of the 
problems raised. 


Press release 876 dated December 28 

The President of the United States and the Chief 
of the Spanisli State [General Francisco Franco] 
this morning concluded a series of conversations 
in which they were joined by other officials of 
both governments. 

The President reviewed the purposes which had 
led him to undertake his goodwill tour and the 
results which he hoped would be achieved. He 
gave the Chief of State a review of his trip, in- 
cluding the Western Summit Conference. The 
talks, which covered a wide variety of other inter- 
national matters of interest to both countries, 
were conducted in an atmosphere of cordiality and 

The President and the Cliief of State discussed 
the President's planned visit to the Soviet Union 
next year and confirmed their views as expressed in 
their exchange of letters of last August " that such 
consultations to improve the climate of relation- 
ships would be beneficial, although a firm defense 
posture should be maintained. 

Gratifying progress was noted in the implemen- 
tation of the Economic and Defense Agreements 
signed by the United States and Spain on Septem- 
ber 26, 1953. These agreements are based on a 
recognition of the necessity for efforts on the part 
of both countries to achieve the common goal of 
world peace and stability. 

During these conversations Spain's admission 
to the Organization for European Economic Co- 
operation was mentioned with satisfaction, and 
the President expressed his good wishes for the 
success of the Spanish economic stabilization

PrtBs release 878 dated December 28 

The meeting between the President and His 
Majesty [Mohammed V, King of Morocco] took 
place on December 22, 1959, at CasabLanca, and 
lasted from 1500 to 1700 and took place in an 
atmosphere of cordiality which is characteristic 
of the relations which arise from the traditional 
friendsliip which has never ceased to exist be- 
tween the United States of America since the 
proclamation of their independence and their rec- 
ognition by the Kingdom of Morocco. 

In the course of this interview the two Chiefs of 
State first of all examined the world situation and 
the problems which arise therefrom. 

They rejoice in the relaxation of international 
tensions and while reaffirming their faith in the 
great values of the freedom of peoples and the 
dignity of men, they feel that any initiative of a 
nature to lead to the consolidation of peace and 
ensure international cooperation, should be en- 

His Majesty drew President Eisenhower's atten- 
tion to the multiple bonds which unite Morocco 
and other Arab countries and make it sensitive 
to everything which affects them. 

His Majesty emphasized the vital importance to 
Morocco of the end of the war in Algeria, in view 
of the profound repercussions which this has on 
the national life of Morocco and its international 

The two Chiefs of State noted with great satis- 
faction the positive character of the political evo- 
lution of the Algerian problem, and rejoice in the 
progress accomplished towards a peaceful solution 
of this problem through the acceptance by the in- 
terested parties of the principle of self-determina- 
tion and recourse to consultation. 

His Majesty the King of Morocco and the 
President of the United States have welcomed the 
opportunity provided by the President's brief 
visit to Morocco to renew their warm personal 
friendship and, with the time available, review 

questions of interest to them. Their exchange of 
views strengthened their already deep confidence 
in tiie possibilities of fruitful cooperation between 
nations such as Morocco and tlie United States, 
sharing common goals of peace and justice among 
men and guided by (he same basic principles of 
national conduct. This was specifically revealed 
in their discussions of the withdrawal of United 
States forces from Morocco, and they were greatly 
encouraged by the progress that has been made 
since His Majesty's visit to Washington in 1957. 

Preliminary preparations for tlie departure of 
United States forces from Morocco will begin in 
the immediate future, and it is agi-eed between His 
Majesty the King of Morocco and the President 
of the United States of America, that United 
States forces will be withdrawn by the end of 
1963. In this connection, immediate steps will be 
taken to release the airfield at Ben Slimane (Boul- 
haut). This will be achieved not later than 
March 31, 1960. 

Netherlands Eases Controls 
on U.S. imports 

The DepartTnent of Commerce and the Depart-

following joint statement on December 24. 

Import restrictions will be removed from 12 
more items by the Netherlands Government on 
January 1, according to the Bureau of Foreign 
Commerce, U.S. Department of Commerce. 

This is the latest in a series of actions which 
have abolished discriminatory treatment of U.S. 
goods and liberalized an overwhelming majority 
of Dutch imports. Although the products to be 
decontrolled in January have been subject to im- 
port quotas, the quotas appear to have been ad- 
ministered in such a way that the flow of U.S. 
exports to the Netherlands was not impaired. 

The commodities affected include seed rye and 
certain types of rice, fats, sugars, acids, soaps, 
coopers' wares, and glassware. The commodities 
concerned in this action will be reported in detail

Opportunities for International Cooperation in Space Exploration 

by T. Keith Glennan 

Administrator, National Aeronautics and Space Administration. '■ 

It is an honor to speak from this platform to- 
night. I am particularly grateful for the oppor- 
tunity to bring to the members of this distinguished 
audience a brief discussion of our national space 
program. As citizens, you should be aware of the 
problems and promises that challenge the Nation 
in the field of space exploration. As members and 
friends of the World Affairs Council, you will be 
interested, I am sure, in the possibilities for useful 
and effective international cooperation that reside 
in this new area of scientific activity. 

As one of my colleagues has put it, when one 
considers the vast distances of the solar sys- 
tem— 93 million miles to the sun ; 26 million miles 
to Venus, the nearest planet; 3,680 million miles 
to Pluto — and when one catalogs the problems 
to be solved and the new knowledge that is needed 
in almost every branch of science and technology 
from magnetohydrodynamics to cosmology, from 
materials to biology and psychology, the magni- 
tude of the task before us becomes apparent. It 
is a task that challenges the peoples of the earth 
as a whole. There is room for cooperation of men 
of many skills and of nations large and small. 

In this context of viewing space research as an 
instrument for tlie development of meaningful 
cooperation between nations, let me first describe 
the program of the United States. I will then 
tell you what I know of the program of the Soviet 
Union. P'inally, I shall discuss the manner in 
which international cooperation is beginning to 
develop. In doing this I shall borrow liberally 
from reports and papers presented at international

Interest of Man in Outer Space 

The interest of man in outer space began long 
ago among uncivilized peoples to whom the face 
of the sky was clock and almanac; the celestial 
bodies, objects of worship. Exploration was at 
first by visual observation, later aided by armillary 
spheres and quadrants, and still later by more 
precise measuring instruments, telescopes, and 
spectroscopes. The information obtained was that 
borne by the light that was transmitted from the 
distant celestial object through the atmosphere 
to the observing instrument on the ground. In 
recent years the light waves have been supple- 
mented by radio waves as carriers of information 
from the stars and planets. 

Men of many nations have contributed through 
the centuries to the exploration of space by the 
methods of astronomy. The history of advances 
in astronomical knowledge and technique in- 
cludes the records of Chinese, Babylonians, 
Greeks, Arabians, and of nearly every nation of 
the modern world. International cooperation was 
early recognized as essential and beneficial: the 
countless number of the stars and the vastness of 
space present mankind with a truly global task. 

The picture of the universe obtained by the 
astronomers early stirred the imagination of men 
to speculate about the existence of life elsewhere 
in the universe, about means of communication 
with distant stars, and, in the last centuries, about 
the possibility of the travel of man to the moon 
and planets. Some sought to apply the science 
and engineering of their day to describe the

vohiclcs to be used. For exiimple, Jules Veme 
published in 18«r) in Fram the Karth to the Moon 
a dest-ription of a ^in-launolied projectile ciirry- 
mg passengers to orbit tiie moon. Today we have 
taken the tirst steps to brin<; tliis inspired vision 
to reality. The exploration of space by unmanned 
vehicles carrying scientific apparatus began on 
October 4, 1957; exploration by man will follow 
in due course. 

Now that date— October 4, 1957— did something 
more than nuirk the successful launching of a 
satellite into an orbit around the earth by the 
Soviet Union. It brought this Nation to its feet 
in a sort of bewilderment. How had this come 
about i. Our leadership in science and technology, 
our genius for applying new knowledge gained 
through research to the solution of the problems 
of mankind— these were being challenged, and in 
a most dramatic way. Initial reactions of skep- 
ticism began to give way to a sober realization 
that space research was more than a scientific 
activity. In the hands of a determined and able 
competitor, it was a mighty instrument for propa- 
ganda and a symbol of international prestige. 

Establishment of NASA 

In mid-1958 the National Aeronautics and Space 
Act 2 was signed into law and the National Aero- 
nautics and Space Administration was established. 
The act begins with a declaration of policy and 
purpose which reads thusly : 

The Congress hereby declares that it is the policy of 
the United States that activities in space should be de- 
voted to peaceful purposes for the benefit of all mankind. 

It also declares that, 

The aeronautical and space activities of the United 
States shall he conducted so as to contribute materially 
to (among other objectives) cooperation by the United 
States with other nations and groups of nations in work 
done pursuant to this Act and in the peaceful application 
of the results thereof. 

I think I will not take the time tonight to 
describe the growth of NASA to you. We do 
have in o{>eration several large research centers, 
three of which are located in California. One of 
these is well known to this audience— the Jet 
Propulsion Laboratory operated by Cal Tech 
under contract to NASA. The Congreas being 
willing, we will add to our research center roster

in mid-March the Huntsville, Alabama, group 
under the direction of Dr. Wernher von liraun. 
By June au, 19(10, wo will employ more than 15.000 
people in the Govennnent-operated centers alone. 
The Pioi)ulsion LaboratorA- complement of able 
people adds another 2,400 to that total. Our 
budget last year totaled $;5;J5 million, and this 
year the Congress appropriated $501 million for 
our use. We are in the middle of budgetary dis- 
cussions for the 1961 fiscal year, and I can say 
only tliat our resources for the next fiscal year 
will be larger by a significant amount. 

U.S. Space Activity Objectives 

Now as to our program— and here I must conj- 
press a 2-hour discussion into a 5-minute sum- 
mary—let me say that it includes research in 
most of the areas of the physical sciences and in 
certain of the areas of the life sciences. One of 
the principal objectives of current space activ-ity 
is the study of the space environment by the un- 
dertaking of scientific experiments using sounding 
rockets, manmade earth satellites, manmade 
planets, and deep-space probes. In the United 
States we have used the term "space science" as 
a shorthand expression for experiments in physics, 
chemistry, bioscience, astronomy, astrophysics, 
and geophysics. All of these space-science experi- 
ments will employ instruments transpoited into 
the ujjper atmosphere and outer space. 

The NASA objectives include the investigation 
of the uses of earth satellites to perform more 
efficiently and effectively some tasks which are 
now carried out by the other means and to perform 
other tasks which cannot be done at all with 
present means. The applications which seem most 
promising at present are those directed toward 
weather observation, analysis, and forecasting on 
a global scale; the improvement of long-distance 
radio communication; the study of tlie size and 
.shape of the earth and of the distribution of land 
masses and water; and all-weather global naviga- 
tion. It is believed that such applications brought 
to successful fruition will improve the well-being 
of mankind everywhere. 

NASA program objectives, presumably like 
those of other countries, include, too, the orderly 
development of means for the manned exploration 
of space. En route to the long-range objective of 
manned exploration of the solar system are the 


temporary ballistic flights of man into space and 
return (already accomplished with animals) ; 
manned flight for one or a few circuits in the 
simplest vehicle in an orbit well below the level of 
the Great Radiation Belt; maimed flight in ad- 
vanced maneuverable vehicles, in larger satellites 
carrying several men, in permanent manned orbit- 
ing space laboratories; manned flight to the 
vicinity of the moon and return to earth; and 
manned landing on the moon and return. 

NASA's present project in this field, Project 
Mercury, has been repeatedly described in the in- 
ternational public and technical press. Its suc- 
cessful completion requires the cooperation of 
several countries in permitting the installation and 
assisting in the operation of portable tracking 
radars, communication stations, and telemetry re- 
ceiving stations at suitable points along the in- 
tended course. Negotiations currently under way 
promise that this cooperation will be forthcoming 

Even the first steps in the manned exploration 
of space are very expensive, as may be inferred 
from the presently estimated cost of Project 
Mercury of $250 million or more. The resources 
required for the advanced missions I have men- 
tioned may well demand a worldwide collabora- 
tion. Thus this activity may serve to give a true 
measure of man's response to the challenge to dis- 
cover and explore the new frontier of our day. 

Rocket and Vehicle Development 

In order that the programs just discussed can 
be carried out at an ever-increasing level of com- 
plexity and scientific significance, it has been 
obvious that launching vehicles and space propul- 
sion systems must be provided. An early task of 
NASA, then, was the planning of a program of 
rocket and vehicle development in cooperation 
with the Department of Defense. Such a program 
must provide for the flying of all the desired mis- 
sions with a minimum number of new rockets 
and new vehicles. As in other countries, our 
present launching vehicles are assembled from 
rockets developed in the ballistic missile program 
and available smaller rockets. For the increased 
thrust that we so much require for future missions, 
two new developments have been started in the 
United States. The first of these is being de- 
veloped by Dr. von Braun and his people — the 
Saturn vehicle — a cluster of eight existing rocket 

engines to give a capability of about 1^ million 
pounds of thrust. The second is a single-chamber 
rocket engine of li/o million pounds' thrust under 
development by the Rocketdyne Division of North 
American Aviation. It is expected that this 
engine can be clustered to give 6 million pounds' 
thrust or more. 

In addition to these first-stage booster rockets, 
several upper-stage rockets are under development, 
including some using high-energy fuels. In addi- 
tion nuclear rockets are under development by the 
AEC [Atomic Energy Commission] and NASA 
along with the general application of nuclear 
energy for auxiliary power in space vehicles. 

Of particular interest to other countries may be 
the launching-vehicle system under development 
by NASA and known as the Scout. This is a 
four-stage, solid-propellant, satellite-launching 
vehicle that will carry 150 to 200 pounds into an 
orbit 300 miles above the earth's surface. It will 
be more economical than existing vehicles; hope- 
fully it will cost no more than $600,000 per firing. 
We expect to use this vehicle, if its development is 
a success, in early international cooperative pro- 

Now there is no point in launching a satellite 
or an experiment toward the moon or the planets 
if we have no means of tracking the space experi- 
ment and acquiring from it the information col- 
lected by the various sensors carried aloft. Thus 
we have had to build a network of tracking and 
data acquisition stations that today covers most 
of the globe. Fortunately we inherited some sta- 
tions from the activities carried on under the In- 
ternational Geophysical Year program and thus 
were able to launch a good many useful experi- 
ments during the past year without waiting for 
the construction of the stations necessary to com- 
plete the network. 

The Russian Program 

Now, what of the Russian program? I suspect 
that most of you know more about it than you 
do of our own. From information given us by a 
variety of sources — some of tliem Russian — it ap- 
pears that they have assigned their top scientists 
and engineers to this new field. They possess 
rockets that are estimated to be twice as powerful 
as our largest— the Atlas intercontinental ballis- 
tic missile. They have launched three successful 
satellites and three deep-space probes. One of 


Department of Sfofe Bulletin 

these now orbits the sun, another landed on the 
moon, and the tliird photograplicd the far side of 
the moon as it went into an orbit tliat initially 
linked tiie moon and the earth. Xotiiing has been 
said by the Russians about their failures, whereas 
our failures, as well as our successes, are promi- 
nently displayed for all the world to see. But it 
does seem that their space-vehicle system is highly 
reliable, sugjiestinj; that they have fired it much 
more frequently than any of the variety of sys- 
tems we have been forced to use thus far. 

As to scientific i-esults to date, it is the opinion 
of knowledgeable scientists that we liave done as 
well or better than the Russians. They have been 
able to couple spectacular technological accom- 
plishments with useful scientific experiments, 
whereas our more modest technological efforts — 
because of our lack of i-eliable launching vehicles 
of high thrust — have turned up really significant 
amounts of new and important scientific informa- 

More important to the Soviet Union than their 
scientific achievements, however, has been the fact 
that thej' have been successful in making their 
spectacular space accomplishments appear to many 
nations as a valid measure of their sophistication 
in all branches of science and technology. More 
recently they have been active and successful in 
creating the impression that their achievements 
in space research and exploration are a valid meas- 
ure of the strength of their Communist system as 
compared to our democratic way of life. All in 
all, the Soviet Union has made and is making hay 
while the sun shines on their satellites and lunar 

International Cooperation 

Now let me turn t-o the matter of international 
cooperation as we see it today. You will recall 
my reading that section of the space act governing 
our activities that encourages us to develop pro- 
grams of international cooperation. An Office of 
International Programs was established by NASA 
in November 1958. Exploi-atoi-y talks were con- 
ducted with the scientists of other nations, and a 
pattei'n for cooperation was established with the 
blessing of the scientific community. We are now 
quite completely occupied with discussions with a 
dozen groups from as many countries interested in 
associating themselves with the United States 

It might be well for me to describe to you some 
of the activities which may form the basis for 
international cooperation and which arise from 
thi> global nature of rasearch in space. The desir- 
able types of activity, it seems to me, are exchanges 
of scientific and technical information and data, 
exchanges of scientists, coordinated programs of 
observation and experimentation, and cooperative 
programs of space exploration. 

Exchange of information in its usual form con- 
sists of the exchange of publications and the hold- 
ing of international scientific meetings. In the 
space activities initiated during the IGY it was 
found desirable to exchange information on the 
planning of experiments, to give prompt notice of 
launchings, early information on orbits, and such 
other data as would permit participation of others 
in observations of scientific value. It is the desire 
of the United States to progress toward the com- 
plete reestablishment of these procedures. 

It has been remarked earlier that space science 
is not a new scientific discipline but comprises the 
use of new tools of experimentation by trained sci- 
entists in physics, geophysics, astronomy, and 
similar established fields. The exchange of sci- 
entists between countries permits a more rapid 
transfer of the new techniques than can be accom- 
plished by publications or presentation of papei"S. 
NASA has established a few fellowships available 
to scientists of other countries and has provided 
research opportunities to a few guest scientists. 
Exchange of scientists in addition to providing 
training in new techniques may also be used for 
substantive participation of senior scientists in 
cooperative programs. 

It is obviously desirable that national programs 
in the space field be coordinated to avoid unde- 
sired duplication and to provide the enhanced in- 
crease in knowledge that comes from coordinated 
efforts. This coordination was well done under 
CSAGI [Comite special de I'annce gcophysique 
internationale], the nongovernmental interna- 
tional committee for the IGY,^' and we look for- 
ward to the early establishment on a more perma- 
nent basis of tlie Conunittee on Space Research to 
continue coordination of basic scientific research 
in the space field. There is need for coordination 
in program planning and in tlie execution of cer-

tain programs. Activities in the tracking of satel- 
lites and in the reception of telemetered data, in 
research on the upper atmosphere and ionosphere 
by means of sounding rockets launched simul- 
taneously in various parts of the world, in investi- 
gation of the ionosphere by observation of radio 
signals from satellites, and in laboratory and theo- 
retical research in areas supporting space activities 
are examples of program areas in which interna- 
tional coordination would be most productive. 

Joint Exploration of Space 

The ultimate step in international cooperation is 
joint participation in a single program, with parti- 
cipation of scientists of two or more countries in 
the design of experiments and in the preparation 
of payloads for rockets, satellites, and space 
probes. As I have said, discussions are under way 
between NASA scientists and their colleagues 
from other countries with the view of beginning 
act ivities of tliis type. 

As a matter of fact, the international character 
of cooperative space activities in which we are en- 
gaged is already broad. Our radio and optical 
tracking network is composed of stations located 
in, and often operated by scientists and teclinicians 
of, Argentina, Australia, Chile, Ecuador, India, 
Iran, Peru, Spain, and South Africa. Other co- 
operating stations are situated in England, "West 
Germany, and Japan. The new Project Mercury 
tracking stations will expand this list to include 
additional countries to the south and in Africa, 
along the planned orbit of the manned capsule. 

Beyond this, tentative arrangements for sub- 
stantial programs of joint exploration of our 
spatial environment have already been made with 
the United Kingdom and Canada. Additional 
cooperative programs have been proposed by a 
number of Pacific and European national space 
committees. These are substantive proposals, in 
which each nation will make its own scientific and 
technical contribution in a truly joint effort to- 
ward mutually agreed objectives. The prepara- 
tion and execution of these programs will not be 
accomplished in a few weeks or even months, but 
the acliievenient of tlieir objectives, witli the at- 
tendant scientific interchange, will enrich all. 

As an evidence of our interest in international 
cooperation, we would be most happy to oiler the 
services of our tracking network in support of 

the scientists of the Soviet Union when and if 
that nation undertakes a manned space-flight 
program. Data could be acquired and transmitted 
in its raw state to the Academy of Sciences in 
Moscow. A precedent for this sort of thing has 
been established in the IGY operation when the 
United States supplied to the Soviet scientists, as 
of July 1959, some 46 tape recordings of Sputnik 
I, II, and III. Should special recording or data 
read-out equipment be required, I am sure that 
we would be happy to provide them or to utilize 
equipment furnished by the Soviet scientists. In 
such a cooperative venture we could help them to 
keep in continuous or essentially continuous 
contact with their astronaut. 

Efforts Toward Common Understanding 

Ladies and gentlemen, it has been my lot to be 
associated with exciting new ventures through- 
out most of my life. As I look back over the 
years, it seems that I have been happiest and have 
worked most diligently when the activity in which 
I was engaged had a vital role to play in the 
affairs of men. Thus my association with the 
Atomic Energy Commission was important to me 
because I was convinced, early in that association, 
that our nuclear weapons strength was the one 
most powerful deterrent to the initiation of a 
shooting war by another great power. Xow I find 
myself in this exciting, difficult, and important 
field of space research. To me, one of its greatest 
appeals is tlie opportunity it offers for the de- 
velopment of a soiuid progi-am of 
cooperation in the science and technology neces- 
sary to the exploration of outer space. 

After all, science is truly an international 
language. And space is an all-pervasive arena 
with plenty of challenge for anyone who possesses 
the curiosity and energy to attempt the solution 
of its mysteries. 

To explore space to gain knowledge of tlie physi- 
cal univei-se in which man lives; to explore space 
as a demonstration of his mastery of advanced 
tecluiologj' ; to open space to his own travel to 
satisfy his desire to see and experience for himself ; 
to explore applications of space teclmology to 
improve worldwide comniunications and weatlier 
forecasting — all of these aims reflect as in a miri'or 
the desires of men everywhere. 

Out of the efforts of the dedicated and inspired 
men of all nations may yet come that common

Press release 867 dated December 19 

I was delighted to hear the announcement today 
[December 19] by Mr. Eugene R. Black, President 
of the World Bank, that Mr. Hermann J. Abs 
of Germany, Sir Oliver Franks of the United 
Kingdom, and Mr. Joseph M. Dodge of the United 
States had accepted his suggestion that tliey join 
in paying a visit to India and Pakistan early next 
year to become acquainted with the economic 
conditions and programs there. The United 
States Government greatly welcomes this initia- 
tive. The idea of employing visits such as this to 
achieve broader understanding in the West of the 
economic position and problems of India and 
Pakistan was contained in a resolution approved 
by the United States Senate on September 10, last, 
which was sponsored by Senators Jolin F. Ken- 
nedy and John Sherman Cooper.^ Similar resolu- 
tions were sponsored in the House of Representa- 
tives by Chester Bowles, James G. Fulton, and 
Chester E. Merrow. I am sure that the viewpoints 
Mr. Dodge will hear and the insight he will derive 
from his trip will make an important contribution 
to discussions in this country regarding the prob- 
lems of India and Pakistan. 


We are delighted by tiie initiative taken by the 
World Bank to carry through the concept of the 
Senate Resolution, which calls for a study by 
powerful western countries of the economic prob- 
lems and needs of India and Pakistan.

Eugene R. Black, President of the World Bank, 
announced on Decemljer 19 that he had suggested 
to Sir Oliver Franks, chairman of Lloyds Bank 
Ltd. of London, England, Dr. Hermann Abs, 
chairman of the Deutsche Bank of Frankfurt, Ger- 
many, and Joseph M. Dodge, chairman of the 
Detroit Bank and Tioist Co. of Detroit, Mich., 
that they visit India and Pakistan to study eco- 
nomic conditions there and to acquaint themselves 
with the current and planned development pro- 
grams in the two countries. Mr. Black said that 
he was convinced of the need for wider under- 
standing in the industrially developed countries 
of the problems confronting the less developed 
ai'eas of the world and expressed the belief that 
visits such as this by prominent members of the 
business and financial communities of the indus- 
trial countries could make an important contribu- 
tion to that end. Sir Oliver Franks, Dr. Abs, and 
Mr. Dodge have accepted Mr. Black's suggestion 
and are planning to make the trip during next 
February and March. 

Mr. Black's suggestion was made after consulta- 
t ion with the Governments of India and Pakistan, 
who have welcomed the idea and will give the 
members of the group every opportunity to leani 
about the major issues involved in the economic 
development of their countries. The Govern- 
ments of the United States, tho United Kingdom, 
and Germany have also been kept fully informed.

U.N. Sets Up New Committee on Peaceful Uses of Outer Space; 
Decides To Convene International Scientific Conference 

Following is a statement made in Committee I 
{Political and Security) on December 10 ly 
Henry Gahot Lodge, U.S. Representative to the 
General Assembly, together with the text of a 
resolution adopted in plenary session on December 


U.S. delegation press release 3345 

Two years ago the first manmade eai'th satellite 
was placed in orbit. A succession of satellites has 
followed. These have advanced man's scientific 
knowledge and demonstrated new techniques for 
communications and meteorology. Some space 
probes have escaped beyond orbits around the 
earth. Notably, the Soviet Union has reached the 
moon, and some probes have coursed far beyond. 
Animals have penetrated outer space as passengers 
aboard space vehicles and returned safely; man 
will doubtless follow soon. 

The events of the past 2 years are starting to 
make clear the promise and the problems confront- 
ing man as he ventures into outer space. These 
beginnings challenge man's political and tech- 
nological inventiveness. It is a prime task of 
governments and of the United Nations to see to 
it that political progress keeps pace with scientific 
change. Unless this is done the world runs the 
serious risk of relying on political institutions and 
arrangements that are outmoded and inadequate. 

The Rationale of international Cooperation 

In surveying what has happened so far in man's 
activities relating to outer space and in planning 
for the future we ought to inquire very candidly 
into the rciusons for international cooperation in 
outer space and into the purposes which the United 


Nations can serve in this connection. I believe 
there are several important reasons and purposes 
for cooperation through the United Nations. 

First, outer space is not the concern of one na- 
tion or of only a few. It is of interest to all. 
Fairness demands that there be an equitable shar- 
ing of benefits that may be derived from all opera- 
tions in this new realm and of the burdens in 
carrying them on as well. Outer space cannot be 
anyone's private preserve. The idea of partner- 
ship in outer space has secured acceptance by mem- 
ber states of the United Nations, without regard 
to their differing social and political philosophies. 
United Nations discussion during the last 2 years 
has emphasized the principle of openness and 
availability of outer space. International cooper- 
ation through the United Nations is surely an ap- 
propriate means for putting this principle into 

Secondly, cooperation among countries will in- 
evitably be necessary for accomplishing many de- 
sirable projects in outer space. For example, if 
such projects require worldwide tracking or tele- 
metering equipment or launching sites in certain 
geographical locations, or if their cost is too high 
for any one nation to liear, they will be literally 
impossible without international cooperation. For 
still other space activities, such as radio and tele- 
vision satellites, even though international cooper- 
ation may not be absolutely necessary, it will be 
required for maximum efficiency and usefulness. 
In general, joint enterprises in outer space will 
prove more effective than the efforts of any single 
nation, since each nation can contribute what it has 
in abundance or does best at any given time. Al- 
ready other countries have their contributions to 
make and will develop greater capabilities in the 
future. If the knowledge of the more advanced 
nations is diffused, the abilities of all nations can 

Department of State Bulletin 

be developed more quickly and brought in(o play. 
T]u-ou<j;li orgunized international cooperation the 
contributions and capabilities of each country can 
be made most effective. 

There is a very practical reason for interna- 
tional cooperation in outer space. Without it, the 
manifold activities being progressively undertaken 
would begin to conflict and to frustrate each other. 
For example, the radio spectrum for space com- 
munications could become overcrowded and hope- 
lessly confused. 

There is still another reason to which we should 
pay the most serious attention. The cloud of an 
infinitely devastating nuclear war hangs over all 
nations. Jlen have learned how to accomplish 
worldwide destruction. Will they be able to for- 
bear from aggressive use of force, bringing all-out 
nuclear war in its train? The United Nations 
and its machinery were expressly designed to pre- 
vent such a catastrophe. Govermnents continue 
to seek means for bringing unlimited competition 
in armaments under control and for instituting 
effective measures of disarmament. Working to- 
gether on the challenges of outer space can provide 
governments with experience in regulating space 
activities that may prove valuable in the area of 
disarmament as well. 

In sum, international cooperation in the explo- 
ration of outer space offei-s an avenue along which 
nations may approach mutual understanding and 
peace. Working together on the great challenges 
of explorat ions beyond the confines of earth can 
create a new perspective in which national bound- 
aries and national rivalries recede in importance. 
Common efforts in the conquest of space can forge 
a community of interest. Where community of 
interest is strong enough, there is unity of spirit 
and harmony in action. A new opportunity now 
presents itself for the operation of these forces. 
We should give it generous scope. 

Report of the Ad Hoc Committee 

The Genera] Assembly now has before it the 
report of the Ad Hoc Committee on the Peaceful 
Uses of Outer Space,' which was established at the 

' U.N. dor. A/4141 ; for a statement by Mr. Lodge on the 
draft report of the Ad Hoc Committee, see Bulletin of 
July 27, 1959, p. 1.38 : for statements by U.S. representa- 
tives to the Ad Hoc Committee, see ibid., June 1."), 1959, 
p. 883, and June 29, 1959, p. 972.

13th session.^ That Committee, under the able 
chairmanship of Ambassador [KotoJ Matsuduira, 
has done valuable work. The United Slates fully 
endorses (he Conunittee's careful and constructive 
report contained in document A/4141. I should 
like now to outline some suggest ions as to the next 
steps to be taken by the United Nations in follow- 
ing up the Committee's work. 

The Ad Hoc Committee, in the conclusions to 
that part of its report written in response to par- 
agraph 1(b) of Resolution 1348 (XIII), propos<>d 
the establishment of a General Assembly commit- 
tee, compased of representatives of member states, 
to perform three kinds of functions. These are 
the following: (1) study of practical and feasible 
measures for facilitating international coopera- 
tion, including those indicated by the Ad Hoc 
Committee in its report under paragi-aph 1(b) of 
last year's resolution; (2) consideration of means, 
as appropriate, for studying and resolving legal 
problems which may arise in carrying out pro- 
grams for the exploration of outer space; (,3) re- 
view, as appropriate, of the subject matter en- 
trusted by the Assembly to the Ad Hoc Committee 
in Resolution 1348 (XIII). 

Steps To Be Taken by U.N.: The Draft Resolution 

Now, Mr. Chairman, today, along with a group 
of other cooperating states, we have submitted a 
draft resolution,^ which will soon be on the table, 
designed to set up a committee. The members of 
that committee would be: Albania. Argentina, 
Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, 
Canada, Czechoslovakia, France, Hungary, India, 
Iran, Italy, Japan, Lebanon, Mexico. Poland. 
Rumania, Sweden, U.S.S.R.. U.A.R., U.K., and 
U.S. The purpose of this committee would be 
as follows : 

(a) to review, as appropriate, the area of in- 
ternational cooperation and study practical and 
feasible means for giving effect to programs in 
the peaceful uses of outer space which could ap- 
propriately be undertaken under United Nations 
auspices; and 

(b) to study the nature of legal problems which 
may arise from exploration of outer space. 

As indicated by the Ad Hoc Conunittee in the

concluding pai-agraph of its report, we think it is 
clearly appropriate for the specialized agencies 
of the United Nations to continue to pursue lines 
of endeavor within their competence in regard to 
outer-space activities. We think those agencies 
will naturally wish to include in their reports to 
the United Nations information on their activi- 
ties in connection with outer space. It may be that 
the General Assembly, from time to time, will 
wish to address requests or recommendations to 
one or more of these agencies for specific under- 
takings in the outer-space field. 

I should like now to comment briefly on the 
composition of the proposed United Nations Com- 
mittee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space. Last 
year, despite earnest efforts, we were not able to 
reach unanimous agreement in the General As- 
sembly on the membership of the Ad Hoc Com- 
mittee. Subseciuently, some members of that 
Committee declined to participate in its delibera- 
tions. That was regrettable. 

We have sought this year to find a composition 
which would command agreement on all sides. 
Through many weeks of patient negotiations the 
United States has sought this objective. Agree- 
ment with the Soviet Union has at length been 
reached. I hope that the fruits of this agreement 
will justify the work and tlie concessions involved 
in reaching it. The United States delegation 
trusts that the agreement is a favorable augury 
for international cooperation through the United 

Promoting International Scientific Cooperation 

Wliat substantive activities should the new 
Committee fii-st consider? Without wishing to at- 
tempt a definitive listing of activities, the United 
States would like to outline its views on steps in 
two broad areas which were mentioned by the Ad 
Hoc Conmiittee and in which early concentration 
of effort should prove constructive. The first of 
these areas is tliat of international scientific and 
technical cooperation. The second is that of ap- 
propriate regulation of man's activities in outer 

An hitemaf tonal Conference of Scientists 

With r&spect to facilitating international scien- 
tific cooperation, no more appropriate initial step 
could be taken than to review and exchange e.\- 
perience with respect to tlie outer-space activities 


conducted to date. The Soviet Union's proposal 
that an international conference to this end be 
held under the auspices of the United Nations 
offers a promising starting point. The United 
States has welcomed this proposal^ as a sign of 
the Soviet Union's willingness to share with the 
rest of the world the data resulting from its 
achievement in outer space. 

An international conference would be in keep- 
ing with the emphasis placed by the Ad Hoc Com- 
mittee on the desirability of openness in the con- 
duct of outer-space activities. The conference 
would serve as a valuable meeting ground for 
scientists actively engaged in outer-space activi- 
ties and others actively interested in the results of 
these activities. It would usefully supplement ex- 
changes already initiated by the international 
scientific community, in particular the activities 
of the Committee on Space Research of the Inter- 
national Council of Scientific Unions, which has 
for some time been planning a space-science sym- 
posium to be held in January 1960. 

To be meaningful, of course, such a space con- 
ference must go beyond mere repetition of the 
limited exchanges already had or scheduled within 
the scientific community. Thus the United States 
believes that the scope of the proposed conference 
should include not only space sciences, so well 
covered by exchanges in scientific forums, but also 
engineering and technological aspects, propulsion, 
vehicles, guidance problems, and many other sub- 
jects of interest to nations which have not yet be- 
gim their own space programs. 

The new Committee, then, should, the United 
States thinks, give early attention to arrange- 
ments for convening an international conference 
of members of the United Nations and of the 
specialized agencies. 

Members of this committee will note that the 
draft resolution submitted by the cosponsoring 
delegations does not contain an}' provision speci- 
fying who will participate in the scientific con- 
ference. That matter of participation is covered 
in an aniendnient^ which will l)e submitted by the 
delegation of Belgium. That amendment would 
insert, at the appropriate place, the words: "of

interesteii Meinlnji-s of llie United Nations niul of

fXriiI)li would read as follows:

of the fnitod Nations, iin international soientilio con- 
ference of interested Members of the United Nations and 
of the si)ecialize<l agencies for tlie exchange of exiwrience 
in the peaceful uses of outer space. 

The United States supports this amendment, 
and we trust this Committee will incorporat-e it in 
the resolution by a decisive majority, in accoi-dance 
with the United Nations precedents on the calling 
of international conferences. This is the lan- 
guage which is, one might say, standard i^ractice. 

There are other possibilities for international 
scientific cooperation which can profitably bo ex- 
plored by the new United Nations Committee. 

World Data Centers 

The establishment and oi)eration of world data 
centers during the International Geophysical 
Year gave organization and unity to the scientific 
world in its quest for laiowledge about the uni- 
verse. This development constituted an impor- 
tant political phenomenon. The world data 
centers have continued to process and disseminate 
information obtained from space activities since 
the conclusion of the International Geophysical 
Year. The Ad Hoc Committee's report calls at- 
tention to the need for extending the number 
and scope of such centers. We think the new 
Committee could usefully study this question, 
consulting with the appropriate mechanisms of 
the scientific community, and provide recommen- 
dations on support of an expanded system for 
collection and distribution of data. It is to be 
hoped that participating countries will agree to 
the prompt and automatic transmi.ssion to the 
world data centers of all scientific information 
obtained liy spacecraft and related data necessary 
for scientific understanding. 

Laimchings Under International Auspices 

The Ad Hoc Committee pointed out that instru- 
mentation of a scientific payload as a coo})erative 
endeavor would provide a means of bringing more 
deeply into spac« research and engineering those 
scientists who would not otherwise have the op- 
portunity of performing experiments in space. 
Several projects of this type are already under 
Tway among the world's scientists, and we believe 
Ithat it would be fruitful for the new Connnittee 

to give thought to the jjolentialities of this 
promising and growing form of cooperat ion. The 
Uniteil States, for its pari, is always prepared to 
discuss the possibility of making available ec|uip- 
ment and facilities for launchings of tiiis char- 

Weather and Coinmurdcations Satellites 

The United States would like to see inter- 
national cooperation in space activities carried 
beyond the activities of piu-e research to facilitate 
the conduct of international programs calling for 
joint elfoit \\\ aresis of practical application of 
sptvce science. The value of improved weather 
forecasting and of the creation of additional and 
more effective chaimels for worldwide comnnmi- 
cation is evident. Another beneficial field of ap- 
plication is navigational satellites. We should 
like to see a ciu-eful international study made of 
the best plans for adapting these various possi- 
bilities of the new sciences to practical applica- 
tion for the benefit of all peoples. 

Study of Appropriate International Regulation 

The international community should also at 
this time, we believe, give attention to the con- 
sideration of appropriate steps to regidate man's 
activities in outer space. I do not mean by this 
to suggest that now is the time to attemp.t any 
general codification of space law. As staled in 
the Ad Hoc Committee's report, a comprehensive 
code is neither practicable nor necessarj- in the 
present stage of knowledge and development of 
space activities. 

The Ad Hoc Committee stated, in paragraph 9 
of its report, under part 1(d) of tlie 1958 msolu- 
tion, that the law has begim to recognize or de- 
velop a rule that outer space is, on conditions of 
equality, freely available for exploration and use 
by all in accordance with existing or future in- 
ternational law or agreements. The United States 
supports this view. A concept of freedom of space, 
however, does not mean that we can overlook the 
many practical problems arising from the opera- 
tion of space vehicles which were pointed out by 
both the scientific and legal experts of the Ad Hoc 
Committee. Therefore it seems clear that the new 
Committee should tuni its attention to possible 
practical measures for dealing witii practical 

lanuary 11, 1960 


Identification of Orbital Objects 

"We believe that the new United Nations Com- 
mittee should study means for providing an ap- 
propriate system of identification for all objects 
placed in orbit aromid the earth. The new Com- 
mittee could also usefully consider means that 
might be adopted either for the removal of spent 
satellites from orbit or at least the termination 
of their radio transmissions when their usefidness 
is ended. 

Celestial Bodies 

Only this autumn an unmanned space probe to 
the moon was made. It is not too early to start 
thinking now about the i-egime which ought to 
be applied to international relations with respect 
to celestial bodies. In this regard the United 
States believes that man's entry into outer space 
is a concerted midertaking of earth as a whole and 
that scientific progress should proceed in har- 
mony among the nations. 

Other Topics 

Our mentioning these selected topics is not to 
suggest that other legal problems identified in the 
Ad Hoc Committee's report should be neglected. 
Quite the conti-ary. In some cases, as with the 
allocation of radio frequencies, it is our hope and 
expectation that tlie work of an existing agency — 
in this case the International Telecommunication 
Union — will proceed to a satisfactory conclusion. 
In other cases, as with the problem of liability for 
injury or damage caused by space vehicles or the 
pi-oblem of reentry and landing of space vehicles, 
the new United Nations Committee may wish to 
give early attention to specific procedures or 
means for starting to cope with these mattei-s. 

Relationship to Disarmament 

The United States, along with other countries, 
has long recognized the potential use of outer 
space for hostile purposes. Nearly 3 years ago we 
proposed ' a study of means to assure the use of 
outer space for peaceful purposes only. I wish to 
repeat that the United States remains ready to 
study the outer-space sector separately and does 
not insist that it bo treated as part, of a more in- 
clusive program for disarmamenl. 

We recognize the vital importance of progress 
in disarmament negotiations. It is for that reason 

that we have undertaken, along with a group of 
other countries, to enter into renewed discussions 
in the near future.'' Hopeful as we are of reach- 
ing significant agreements on disarmament, which 
can lead in the end to a safer and happier world, 
we realize from experience that the making and 
carrying out of effectual agreements to disarm are 
painstaking and time-consuming. We do not 
wish to see international cooperation on the peace- 
ful uses of outer space delayed because of this fact. 


Mr. Chairman, let me conclude by saying that 
the nations of the world look into the future, and, 
as they look into the reaches of space, they con- 
front an unprecedented opportunity. The fate of 
human activities in space and indeed the fate of 
the peoples of the earth lie in the hands of the 
community of nations. The occasion is new. The 
challenge is unprecedented. Let us rise to the

The Search for Peace With Freedom 

Remarks hy President Eisenhower ^ 

Fellow Americans, at liome and overseas; 
friends of America; workers for a just peace, 
wherever you may be in the world, whatever your 
race or flag or tongue or creed : 

Once again I have the privilege of lighting the 
Pageant of Peace tree on the eve of the Christmas 
season. This is the season when men and women 
of all faiths, pausing to listen, gain new heart 
from the message that filled the heavens over 
Betldehem 2,000 years ago — Peace on earth, good 
will to men. 

Every Christmas through the long marcli of 
centuries since then, the message has been echoed 
in the hopes and prayers of humanity. 

This Christmas, for me at least, those words 
have clearer meaning, sharper significance, more 
urgent counsel. 

Last night I came home from a trip that carried 
me to three continents, Africa and Asia and 
Europe.- I visited 1 1 countries, whose populations 
total a quarter of all mankind. 

I wish that every American — certainly every 
American recognized by his fellows as a leader in 
any field — and every leader in the countries of the 
West could see and hear what I have seen and 
what I have heard. The mutual underetanding 
thereby created could in itself do much to dissolve 
the issues that plague the world. 

My trip was not undertaken as a feature of 
normal diplomatic procedures. It was not my 
purpose either to seek specific agreements or to 
urge new treaty relationships. My purpose was 

' Made at the ceremonies opening the Christmas Pageant 
of Peace at Washington, D.C., on Dec. 23 (White House 
press release). 

' For bacliground, see Bulletin of Dec. 28, 1959, p. 931, 
and Jan. 11, 1960, p. 46. 

to improve the climate in whicli diplomacy might 
work more successfully — a diplomacy that seeks, 
as its basic objective, peace witli justice for all 

In tlie crowds that welcomed my party and me 
I saw at close hand the faces of millions. Many, 
indeed most, were poor, weary, worn by toil ; but 
others were yomig, energetic, eager — the children, 
as always, bright and excited. 

The clothes of a few were as modern as today's 
Paris ajid New York ; of others, as ancient as the 
garb of Abraham, often soiled and tattered, al- 
though sometimes colorful and romantic to the 
American eye. 

They were Buddhist and Muslim and Hindu 
and Christian. 

But, seeing them massed along coimtry roads 
and city streets from the eastern shore of the At- 
lantic to Karachi and Delhi, three tilings, it 
seemed to me, united them into one fiunily : 

Tlie first, their friendship for America and 
Americans ; 

The second, their fervent hope — too long frus- 
trated — for betterment of tliemselves and of their 
children ; 

And third, their deep-seated hunger for peace 
in freedom. 

Key to Betterment of Peoples 

Of this last, permit me to speak first. It must 
come first. The assurance of peace in freedom 
is the key to betterment of peoples everywhere, 
and in a just peace friendship between all peoples 
will flourish. 

I assure you that all the people I saw and visited 
want peace. Nothing in human affaira can be 
more certain than that 

January 18, J 960 


I talked with kings and presidents, prime min- 
isters, and hiunble men and women in cottages 
and in mud huts. Their common denominator 
was their faith that America will help lead the 
way toward a just peace. 

They believe that we look and work toward tlie 
day when the use of force to achieve political or 
commercial objectives will disappear, when each 
coimtiy can freely draw on the culture, wisdom, 
experience of other countries and adapt to its own 
needs and aspirations what it deems is best and 
most suitable. 

They understand that we look and work toward 
the day when tliere can be open and peaceful 
partnership — communication — interchange of 
goods and ideas l)etween all peoples, toward the 
day when each i>eopl6 will make its maximum con- 
tribution toward the progress and prosperity of 
the world. 

Such is the world condition which we and all 
the peoples I visited hope — and pray — to see. 

Our concept of the good life for humanity does 
not require an inevitable conflict between peoples 
and sysiems, in which one must triumph over tlie 
other. Nor does it offer merely a bare coexistence 
as a satisfactory state for mankind. After all, an 
uneasy coexistence could be as barren and sterile, 
joyless and stale a life for human beings as the co- 
existence of cellmates in a penitentiaiy or a labor 

Help and Strength for the Cause of Freedom 

We believe that history, the record of human 
living, is a great and broad stream into which 
should pour the richness and divei-sity of many 
cultures, from which emerge ideas and practices, 
ideals and purposes, \ii\k\ for all. We believe 
each people of the human family, even the least 
in numlwr and (lie most primitive, can contribute 
something to a developing world embracing all 
peoples, enhancing the good of all peoples. 

But we recognize — we must recognize — that in 
tlie often fierce and even ^-icious battle for sur- 
vival — against weather and disease and poverty — 
some peoples need hclj). Denied it, they could 
well Income so desperate as to create a woi-ld 

Now, in tlio ultimate sense, a nation must 
achieve for itself, by its heart and by its will, tlie 


standard of living and the strength needed to 
progress toward peace with justice and freedom. 
But, where necessai-y resources and technological 
skills are lacking, people must be assisted, or all 
the world will suffer. 

In the past America has been generous. Our 
generosity has been greeted with gi'atitude and 
friendship. On my trip many millions cried and 
shouted their testimony to that fact. 

No count i-y I visited is short on the gi-eatest of 
all resources — people of good heart and stout will. 
xVnd this is especially true of the yomig. Almost 
every coiuitry is, however, short on the teclmical 
knowledge, the skills, the machines, the tech- 
niques — and the money — needed to enable their 
l>eople fully to exploit the natural resources of 
tlieir lands. 

Of course, money alone camiot bring about this 
progress. Yet America's own best interests — our 
own hopes for peace — require that we continue 
our financial investment and aid and persuade all 
other fi-ee nations to join us, to the limit of their 
ability, in a long-term program, dependable in its 
tenns and in its duration. 

But more importantly — in the spirit of the 
Christmas season, that there may be peace on earth 
and good will among men, we must as indi\'iduals, 
as corporations, labor unions, professional soci- 
eties, as communities, multiply our interest, our 
concern in these peoples. They are now our wann 
friends. They will be our stout and strong part- 
ners for peace and friendship in freedom — if they 
are given the right sort of help in the right sort 
of spirit. 

The ^Vmerican Government and our allies i>ro- 
\'ide the defensive strength against aggi-e.ssion 
that permits men of good will to work together 
for i^eace. Such strength is an absolute require- 
ment until controlled and safeguarded disarma- 
ment allows its reduction, step by step. 

Protected by our defensive strength against 
\iolent disru[)tion of our peaceful efforts, we are 
ti-ying to produce a workable, practical program 
that will make eacli succeeding Christmas a little 
closer in spirit, and reality to the message of the 
Ih-st Christmas long ago. 

Tliis is not a matter of charity for the poverty- 
stricken nor of easing our own consciences through 
doles for the distressed. The help we give to our 
friends is help and strength for the cause of free-

Together we should consider all the ways ami

hope that in this Christmas season each of you 
who is listening will give thought to what you 
can do for another liuman, identical with you in

Four Powers Agree on May 16 
as Date for Summit Meeting 

On December 21 France, the United Kingdom, 
and the United States proposed to the Soviet 
Union that an East-West summit meeting begin 
at Parifi on April 27} Following is a subsequent 
exchange of messages between President Eisen- 
hower and NikitaS. Khrushchev, Chairman of the 
Council of Ministers of the Union of Soviet So- 
cialist Republics.

December 20, 19.5!) 
Dear Mr. Chairman : I note with satisfaction 
that you have agreed to participate in a Summit 
meeting of the Four Powers in Paris which Prime 
Minister Macmillan, President de Gaulle and my- 
self proposed to you. I can well understand the 
difficulty of arriving at a date commonly accept- 
able to tJie four of us. 

I have been in touch with Prime Minister Mac- 
millan and President de Gaulle in regard to tlie 
alternative dates which you suggest. Unfortu- 

'For text of a letter from President Eisenhower to 
Soviet Premier Khrushchev, see Bulletin of Jan. 11, 
1960, p. 44. 

nately, due to other engagements, both President 
de Gaulle and I would not find it possible to meet 
on April -2.1. I further undei-stand that Prime 
Minister Macmillan has prior commitments which 
run from May ;5 until mid-May. 

Provided that this is acceptable to you, the best 
arrangement would seem to be for the meeting of 
the Four Powers to open in Paris on May 16. 

I trust, Mr. Chainnan, that this will notpi-esent 
any difficulties to you and that we may agree Xo 
meet in Paris on that date.

Dear Mr. President: I have received yonr letter in

mit meeting of the Four Powers and communicate the 
understanding reached on this question between you. 
Prime Minister Macmillan and President de Gaulle. First 
of all I wish to express my deep satisfaction that you. 
Prime Minister Macmillan and President de Gaulle con- 
sider it desirable for the discussion of the main interna- 
tional problems from time to time to arrange a meeting 
at tlie highest level of the countries taking part in such a 

The Soviet Government can only welcome such a dec- 
laration. We have always considered that it Is exactly 
through the personal meetings of statesmen on the highest 
level that urgent international problems can be resolved 
in the most effective manner. 

The Soviet Government exi)resses it.s readiness for con- 
ducting the summit meeting in Paris. 

Unfortunately the date named for this meeting of April 
27, 11K50, is not convenient for tlie Soviet Government. In 
connection with this, we would like to suggest as a possi- 
ble date for this meeting the 21st of April or the 4th of 
-May 1960. 

The Soviet Government hoi)es that one of these dates 
will be acceptable for the Government of tlie Unite<l 
States of -Vmerica as well as for the Governments of 
Great Uritain and France and that its propositi will not 
make any difficulty in the choice of a definitive date for 
the meeting of the Heads of Government. 

I hope, Mr. President, that these con.slderatlons will 
be aweptnble to you. 
With warm regarda

tions. So far, deeds have not followed upon 
peaceful words. Thus, though willing and ever 
ready to negotiate, we must not let down our 
guard. More than ever, in a period of some hope, 
it is essential to maintain our defenses. Also, if 
we are to arrive at solutions to world problems, 
we must realize that these do not come easily — 
they may well take generations to accomplish. 

Secondly, we must go forward from the experi- 
ence of the President's recent trip which has 
headlined through the world the concern of the 
United States for peace and friendship in free- 
dom. This princijile is now recognized by hun- 
dreds of millions of people. Our task in lOfiO and 
the years ahead is to help convert this principle 
from ait expression of tiuxious hope into a state-

Press release 884 dated December 29 
Department Announcement 

Technical Working (Jroup 2, which examined 
problems relating to detection and identification 
of seismic events, concluded its work on December 
18 and reported to the Geneva Conference on the 
Discontinuance of Nuclear "Weapon Tests on 
December 19. Annex II of the "Working Group 
report ^ is a ''Statement by the Soviet Experts." 
This intemperate and teclmically unsupportable 
Soviet annex, inunediately after it was read to the 
conference, was refuted by Dr. James B. Fisk, 
chairman of the U.S. teclmical group. The text 
of Dr. Fisks statement of December 19 is 

Excerpt from Verbatim GEN/DNT/PV. 150 (December 
19, 1959) 

Mr. Fisk (United States of America) : I had hoi)ed that 
we would not be called uiMin today to re-arjjue our cases, 
particularly sinc-e I understand that the annexes to the 
report which we have submitted to you today are to be 
published, and particularly also because these questions 
have been so thoroughly covered in the verbatim records. 

However, since Dr. [B. K.] Federov has read his in- 
correct, distorted and misleading statement, I feel that the 
record would be lopsided if I did not make a few moderate 
comments on behalf of the United .States delegation. 

Mr. Fe<lerov lias referred to a large number of very 
highly technical and complicated matters. I do not pro- 
pose to comment on all of them, for the reasons that I 
have cited. There are, however, a few which deserve 
comment at this time. 

Mr. Federov has returned once again to the argument 
which he has used persistently throughout our meetings — 

' For background, see BmxETl.v of Sept. 14, 1959, p. 374. 
* Doc. GEN/DNT/TWG. 2/9, released at Geneva Dec.

naim-Iy, the arKtiment that the new data based on the 
Hardtack e.\i>erlments are Invalid because they In effect 
do not represent u test of the system re<'onimeuded by the 
Geneva Conference of KxihtIs. I should like to observe 
that that as.sertlon is irrelevant. I would, furthermore, 
observe that the Instruments which were used In the 
Hardtack experiments have been conclusively shown. In 
the course of the meetings of the Twhnlcal Working 
Group, to be suiwrior to those which we understand were 
recommended by the Conference of Experts.' .Mr. Fed- 
erov challenges us not every one of the total 
number of seismographs u.sed in the Hardtack exjK-ri- 
ment.s was usetl in every exi)erlment. This has no essen- 
tial bearing on the results. I would simply observe tiat 
sixtiH-n seismographs, well calibrated and well placed, 
for any one of underground explosions, are a rather 
unusually large number and the data from them are 
good, relevant and complete. 

Mr. Federov charges us with changing the source dat« 
as a matter of whim. I should like to remind him that 
the source data are the seismogrums themselves. Many 
of them have been available to the Soviet delegation for 
a number of months. In the first few meetings of the 
Tec'hnieal Working Group, 2,50 were made available to 
the Soviet delegation. Those are the source data. If 
the Soviet scientists are willing to do their own home- 
work, they have available every bit of data that we have 
laboured on for so long. 

Mr. Federov says that we introduced new data at the 
nineteenth meeting of the Working Group. That is an 
absurd statement. I should like to observe that it was 
only at last, at that nineteenth meeting, that we cotild 
even bring Mr. Federov to discuss on a technical basis 
the very important question of first motion. Further- 
more, what he calls new data were obtained by measur- 
ing the very seismograms that had been made available 
to the Soviet delegation earlier. 

I should now like to make some remarks about the final 
report of the United States delegation concerning the 
work of the Technical Working Group. 

In accordance with the Group's terms of reference, the 
United States delegation bases its reiMirt on all scien- 
tifically valid conclusions concerning the detection and 
identification of nuclear events ba.sed on new studies and 
data, whether such conclusions would lead to improve- 
ments of the system or would lejid to an assessment which 
would make the system api>ear Ic.'ss effe<'tive. It is our 
view that mentioning only the potential improvements in 
the final conclusions on this subject would mislead the 
Conference on the Discontinuance of Nuclear Weapon 
Tests concerning the pre.sent technical status of the pos- 
sible control system. 

One of the imi)ortant conclusions in the swiion of our 
report on new data deals with the so-calle<l first motion 
problem — that is, the direction in which a seismic needle 
would swing as a first resiwnse to a seismic disturbance. 
This direction was considered by the Conference of Ex- 
perts in 19.>8 to be the primary tool for discriminating 

' For background, see Bulleti.v of Sept 22, 1958, p. 452, 
and Jan. 26, 1959, p. 118. 

January 18, J 960 


between earthquakes and explosions. The conclusion 
drawn by the United States delegation, based on new 
data, is that this method of discrimination is much less 
effective than had been thought. 

A further important conclusion in that section concerns 
the possibility of concealment of underground nuclear 
explosions by detonating such explosions in a very large 
cavity in salt or hard rock. It was shown theoretically 
that the seismic signal of a given explosion under these 
conditions could be reduced three hundredfold or more as 
compared to the signals produced in the Nevada tests. 
Consequently, explosions could be made to look smaller 
by this factor and thus be much harder to detect and 

Another item of the si^me section deals with a subject 
to which Mr. Federov has given such attention — that is, 
the estimate of the nimiber of earthquakes which would 
be exi)ected to be detected and located by the system. 
The conclusion is thiit the estimates of .such a number are 
very uncertain but that about 15,000 earthciuakes per 
year would be located by the system over the whole world, 
corresponding to earth movements produced by nuclear 
explosions of more than one kiloton. For larger explo- 
sions, such as 20 kilotons, the number of equivalent earth- 
quakes is about 2.000 world-wide. 

All delegations concurred in the se<-tion on seismic 
improvements, and I do not believe that it needs any 
further comment. However, much work and research 
must be done to make these new methods effective. 

We then have a section on criteria based on objective 
instrument readings which could be used by the control 
organization in determining the eligibility of detected and 
located seismic events for insi)ection. Agreement was 
not reached on that .section. It is the United States dele- 
gation's view that .such criteria must be formulate<l so 
that a large number of explosions would not be classified 
as natural earthquakes and that the criteria must be based 
on well established technical information. Unfortunately, 
the resulting criteria classify only a small fraction of the 
seismic events as natural earthquakes, leaving a large 
number eligible for insj)ectiou. It was the Soviet dele- 
gation's view that criteria must be sijecified by the Work- 
ing Group which would remove a large fraction of the 
seismic events fnmi eligibility for inspection by identify- 
ing them as na.tural earthquakes. However, it is the 
United States delegation's view that this is impossible 
within present te<-hnical knowledge. In fact, the criteria 
proposed by the Soviet delegation woiild have classified 

such events as the recent United States underground 
nuclear test explosions, which ranged up to 19 kilotons in 
yield, as natural earthquakes and thus would have made 
them ineligible for insi)ection. It is the United States 
delegation's view that as scientific knowledge progresses 
more useful criteria can be formulated in the future. 

We recognize that there is a great deal of additional 
seismic information available, as listed in a substantial 
section of our report, but that information is not suffi- 
ciently complete to be formulated into specific criteria. 
The United States delegation feels that such auxiliary 
information should be very useful if evaluated in a com- 
petent technical manner in connection with a particular 
.seismic event. 

The problem of the formulation of criteria is a strictly 
technical problem. If technical knowledge permits one 
to identify a large fraction of seismic events as earth- 
quakes, then it is clearly a great advantage to the control 
system. If technical knowledge does not permit that, 
then seismic events must remain eligible for inspection. 
Determination of the means of selecting events to be 
insi>ected must be left for further consideration by tbe 
main Conference.

Communications Between Peoples, the Clialienge of Cultural Diplomacy 

by Robert H. Thayer^ 

We are on this '2!>tli day of December on the 
threshold of an exciting new decade, tlie decade 
of the sixties. The next 10 years ai-e going to be 
years of astonnding and dramatic clianges. The 
raj)id progress Iwing made in all fields of science 
is bound to affect very deeply the individnal as 
well as the national lives of the j^eoples of the 
whole world. 

We in the United Stat-es have an obligation as 
individuals and as a nation to assert leadership 
in seeing that these changes take place in a way 
that will bring greater fullillment to life in a 
world of peace. We must be on the aleit not to 
lose the basic principles of our great heritage in 
this process of change, and at the same time we 
must, take care not to cling to concepts that have 
lost their validity. 

This is particularly true in the field of inter- 
national relations, where, I submit, new concepts 
are needed if we are to succeed in establishing 
and maintaining with the people of the rest of 
the world the mutual imderstanding necessaiy to 
prevent a war that coidd destroy civilization. 
These new concepts include what I have teniied 
"cultural diplomacy," as distuiguished from the 
military, political, and economic diplomacy of 
the decades behind us; and cidtui'al diplomacy, if 
it is to be effective, requires close association l)e- 
tween the government and the academic commu- 
nity. I have, therefore, a profound sense of 
professional comradeship with all of you here to- 
day, for we have much in common in our respec- 

' Address made before a joint meeting of the American 
Educational Theater A.isociatlou and the Speech Associa- 
tion of .Vmerica at Washington, D.C., on Dec. 2ft (press 
release 880). Mr. Tha.ver is Si>ecial Assistant to the 
Secretary of State for the Coordination of International 
Educational and Cultural Relations. 

tive fields of education and foreign affairs, and 
there is an urgent need today for us to draw closer 

The key word that links lx)th our worlds is 
"communication." As teachers of speech and the 
dramatic arts, you are dealing with communica- 
tion in its most dynamic form — the form that 
throughout history has provided man with one of 
the most effective outlets for liis social conscious- 
ness. As the head of the State Department's 
Bureau of International Cultural Relations, I am 
concerned with comiumiication between peoples — 
the masses of people who collectively form nations 
with distinctive languages, histories, social and 
economic developments, and cultural patterns. 

Oncei commiuiications are established, whether 
across footlights or from the rostriun or across 
continents, you and I have the same primary objec- 
tive — the achievement of a basic understanding of 
the emotions, aspirations, problems, and cultiu"al 
heritage of people, whether they be hundre^ls of 
millions of Asians seeking social and economic 
justice or a group of playwrights or sjieakers 
pleading for the same cause. 

Broadening of International Horizons 

International ciillural relations have come to 
tlie forefront during the past decade in the form 
of a challenge to our ability to communicate as a 
nation. I would like to talk to you about this 
rai)idly expanding lield of conununications today 
and show you how the Government and the uni- 
versities can cooperate to work for the national 
interest in the decade to come. 

Al)out 30 years ago the governments of the 
world, especially ours, })aid little attention to 
international cultural relations, an area of hmnan 
endeavor properly left to the scholars, artists, and

peripatetic concert soloists. Since then — espe- 
cially since the outbreak of the Second World 
^Yar — governments have come to appreciate inter- 
national cultural activities as imix>rtant factore in 
the overall conduct of foreign affairs. Why have 
sovereign states broadened their international 
horizons beyond their traditional political, eco- 
nomic, and military fields of activity ? There are 
three primaiy reasons, all of which are closely 

Firet, the power of the people to influence offi- 
cial policy has gi-own in all parts of the world. 
Tlie masses, whether at the ballot box or at the bar- 
ricades, are making their voices heard and their 
desires understood. 

Second, the tecluiical means of international 
communication have developed in phenomenal 
fashion. The airplane, the radio, the cinema, the 
low-priced book — all of these have made it possi- 
ble for the people of one coiuitry to reach the peo- 
ple of other coimtries swiftly and in depth. 

Thii-d, world events have made sovereign na- 
tions politically, economically, and militarily in- 
terdependent. The hiatus between domestic and 
foreign policy has almost disappeared. Inde- 
pendent countries — the powerful and the weak, the 
large and the small, the developed and under- 
developed — must adjust themselves to unprece- 
dented and complex interrelationships. 

Thus, with the masses taking their place in the 
sun and with sovereign states finding it impossible 
to stand alone, connnimi cat ions l>etweeu peoples — 
cultural relations — have come to mean many im- 
poilaiit things to many governments. 

What do they mean to your Govennnent? For 
the United States, the challenge to our ability to 
communicate as a nation of 180 million people is 
part and parcel of our stniggle to achieve a lasting 
peace with social justice and dignity for the indi- 
vicbial. Wo ai'o a nation with a message to convey 
and iussislaiice to gi\-o to tlie peoples who desire a 
gi-eafer sliare of tlie world's economic and social 
wealth. Cultural relations, properly focused and 
conducted, can help us to convey our message and 
give our assistance in a mamier that is clearly 
undei-stootl, both as to motivation and objectives. 
Cultural relations can also help us to undei-stand 
the cultural accomplislimenfs of otliei- peo])les, so 
that our world ieadei-sliip may be exercised with 
compiussion and respect for foreign values and 

Unfortunately cultural relations can be used to 
promote international villainy as well as imder- 
standing. The radio that canies the voice of 
friendship can also carry the voice that hai^ps on 
national fears, evokes ancient prejudices, and in- 
flames smoldering passions. Cheaply printed 
books can carry lies as well as the truth. The 
cinema can convey political dogma as well as ar- 
tistic achievement. 

Therein lies the challenge to this Nation's ability 
to communicate witli the other peoples of the 
world. The message we have is dynamic, but the 
barriers we have to breach are formidable. The 
Government is active in the field of international 
cultural relations as a partner with the American 
people in the fulfillment of a task that is vital to 
our national welfare — the development between 
peoples of an atmosphere of mutual tiiist and re- 
spect, within which sovereigii states may resolve 
their differences without resorting to force. 
From a long-range point of view I can think of 
nothing more important to our national well-being 
than cultural diplomacy. 

Let me review for you briefly the latest develop- 
ments in the field of Govermnent-sponsored in- 
ternational cultural activities. 

Within the Department of State, the Bureau 
of International Cidtural Kelations was estab- 
lished last summer to provide higli-level policy 
direction to the established cultural exchange pro- 
grams. These include the well-known Inter- 
national Educational Exchange Program, which 
provides for the exchange of approximately 6,500 
students, professoi"s, teachers, leaders, and spe- 
cialists between the United States and more tlian 
100 other countries each year; the President's 
Special International Program for Cidtural Pres- 
entations, which assists groups of American per- 
forming artists and atliletes to appear in other 
countries of the world; the special cultural, tech- 
nical, and educational exchange program with the 
Soviet-bloc countries of Eastern Europe; and the 
cari-ying out of the United States share in the im- 
portant work of UNESCO [United Nations Edu- 
cational, Scientific and Cultural Organization]. 

The American Educational Theater Abroad 

Hero 1 woidd like to inject a note of commen- 
dation to those of you who have jiarticipated in our 
exchange program as lecturers in the fields of 
drama and the theater ai-ts at foreign univei-sities. 


Departmenf of Sfafe Bulletin 

Among otliei-s, some of your colleagues who did 
outshmdiug jobs abroad last year include Dr. 
Frank A. Mc.Mullan of Yale Univei-sity, who 
made many friends for the United States among 
the intellectual elite of Chile: Dr. Francis C. 
Strickland of Stanford University, who was very 
well liked in Finland; and Dr. Fanin S. Belcher 
of West Virginia State College, who tauglit drama 
to enthusiastic Iranian student^s at the Univei-sity 
of Tehnin, despite the frustrations of pi-imitive 
working conditions. 

All of these people proved that coui-ses in the 
theater arts involve a great deal more rapport be- 
tween the pi-ofessor and both his students and his 
host community than courees in other subjects. 
This is a veiy important factor in the achieve- 
ment of real exchanges of views between our gran- 
tees and the people they meet abroad. The pro- 
fessor of drama who directs his students in the 
production of a play is in an excellent position to 
represent his own coimtry and culture in depth. 
I would like to see more of you apply for grants 
to lecture abroad under the Fulbright and Smith- 
Mundt programs. 

Just one warning, however. Those of you who 
do go abroad are in for a lot of surprises. The 
educational theater abroad is not the same as in 
the United States. In Santiago, Chile, Dr. Frank 
McMullan found that the theaters of the Univer- 
sity of Chile and the Catholic T^niversity are af- 
filiated with those schools in name only. In effect, 
tliey are highly professional repertory theatei-s 
comparable to the Comedie Franc;aise in Paris and 
the Old Vic in London. Professor McMullan's 
productions of Look Homeward, Angel and Th^, 
Taming of the Shrew were extremely well re- 
ceived. His biweekly lectures on acting and di- 
recting were attended by authoi-s, composers, 
poets, and painters in addition to the regular con- 
tingent of professors and students from the 
schools. All of these activities earned him a prize 
as the "Best Director of 1958" from the Chilean 
National Association of Theater Critics. 

At the same time, on the other side of the world 
in Iran, Professor Fanin Belcher was directing 
his students in a prcxluction of Home of the Brave 
without blackboard or chalk, in a utility i-oom 
heated by an inadequate pot-bellietl stove, with 
continuous interruptions from ping-pong players 
and afternoon tea drinkers. 

Both of these gentlemen made outstanding con- 
January 18, I960 

tributious to international understanding in cul- 
tural environments far ditrei-ent from the aca- 
demic life back home. 

The ditl'ei-cnces between the educational theater 
in the Unite<l States and those abroad have IxHsn 
made even more appaiviit to us in the Pivsident's 
Special Inteniatiomil Program for (^dtural Pres- 
entations. As you know, we have sent sevcraJ 
AETA-affiliated uiuversity theater groups on 
foreign tout's under this program. These have in- 
cluded the Wayne State Univei-sity Theater Group 
that visited India; the Catholic University and 
University of Minnesotii Theatei-s that toui-ed 
LatiTi America ; and the Florida A. and M. group 
that performed in Africa. 

These tours were received with genuine wannth 
and helped to dispel the myth of America's pre- 
occupation with materialistic objectives. Never- 
theless, we have found that thei'e is not a clear 
understanding abroad of the exact status of the 
amateur vei-sus the professional in the United 
States. Vei-y often our university theater groups 
abroad have been judged by the same critical 
standards used for companies like the Old Vic and 
the Comedie Fran^aise. Tliis factor, adde<l to the 
problems of limited budgets, makes it difficult for 
us to plan to use the educational theater abroad on 
a large scale. We have found, especially in coun- 
tries where little English is laiown or spoken, that 
musical and dance presentations have a broader 

Nevertheless I have been particularly struck by 
the efforts your own organization is making to ex- 
tend the influence and knowledge of ^Vmerican 
theater abroad. I understand that univereity-to- 
univei-sity relationships exist between a number 
of academic institutions in the United States and 
abroad. I certainly wish to encourage you to con- 
tinue and expand this type of activity. It consti- 
tutes not only a welcome addition to the limited 
efforts that our Government can make in telling 
our cultural story abroad but broadens your com- 
nuuiity of interest and contributes to your tech- 
niqiies as well. 

Despite the financial and other limitations I 
have already mentioned, I am certain that in the 
future tliere will l)e opportunities for some of your 
theater groups to travel al)i-()ad under the Presi- 
dent's Program. Meanwhile we woidd welcome 
your advice and co>msel concerning the problems 
that beset us in the export, of American theater. 



1 hope that you will continue to increase your 
efforts to develop ways and means of your own to 
tell the story of America's academic theater to the 
world The Bureau of International Cultural 
Kelations and I stand ready to help in any way 
we can. 

Coordinating Overseas Cultural Activities 

In addition to the supendsion and direction of 
the State Department's cultural exchange pro- 
grams, I am responsible for coordinating the over- 
seas cultural activities of 15 Government agencies 
and for serving as a focal point for cooperation 
between the Government and the many private 
institutions and organizations active in this field. 
Since assuming my present position in the State 
Department, I have not ceased to be amazetl at, the 
vast munber of organizations and indmduals 
directly concernexl with projects that have a pro- 
nounced cultural impact abroad. 

Within the Goveniment you have the State 
Department's programs; the programs of the 
United States Information Agency, including the 
establishment and maintenance of American li- 
braries abroad ; the support of binational centers ; 
the translation and distribution of books, and 
English-language training courses; the technical 
cooperation progi-ams of the International Coop- 
oration Administration, under which 8,000 foreign 
citizens come to the United States each year for 
training and 3,500 American technicians go 
abroad to teach skills to the peoples of other 
countries; the Defense Department's military 
assistance programs, which have brought more 
tlian 9,000 high-ranking militaiy officials to the 
United States since 1950 ; the exchanges of publi- 
cations and other materials between the Libraiy of 
Congress, the Smitlisonian Institution, and the 
national libraries and institnt ions of other coun- 
tries; the exchanges of research materials on tlie 
peaceful uses of atomic energy Iwtween our 
Atomic Energy Commission and corresponding 
agencies abroad ; the International Trade Fairs of 
the Department of Commerce; and many others. 
In the private sex^tor hundreds, and perhaps 
thousands, of separately sponsored international 
cultural programs are in existence. All sectore 
of our society are iinolved, including univei-sitics, 
business firms, foundations, missionaiy groups, 
civic organizations, and service clubs. The pro- 
grams vary in size and scope from tlie large-scale 


exchange-of-persons projects of the Ford, Rocke- 
feller, and Carnegie Foundations to the scholar- 
ship progi-ams of Rotaiy Inteniational, the pen- 
pal exchanges sponsored by the Student Forum on 
International Relations, and the work-camp activ- 
ities of the American Friends Serrice Committee. 
All of these progi-ams, both public and private, 
are contributing to the creation of an image of 
America abroad. My job is to emphasize this 
commonly shared factor and to help all of the 
policymakei-s and planners focus their programs 
toward the objective of creating an innige tliat is 
ti-uthful, matui-e, and underetandable. 

How are we working to coordinate Government 
programs and to achie\e cooi>eration between the 
Government and pri\-ate enterprise in this field ? 
xVs we see it in the Bureau of International Cul- 
tural Relations, there are tliree main goals to be 


First, we must gather all the facts and find out 
what everyone is doing in this field in both the 
public and private sectors. Once we have our 
facts, and can keep tlieiu current, we must distrib- 
ute them for the benefit of interested individuals 
and organizations. AVithin the bureau we have 
taken steps to achieve this objective by establish- 
ing a clearinghouse that is gathering information 
and is just beginning to issue reports on American- 
sponsored international cultural activities on a 
countiy -by-country basis. 

Second, we liope to set up a single coordinating 
mechanism which will make it easy for Govern- 
ment agencies and private organizations to ex- 
change ideas and information about what they 
are doing. Toward this end we are arranging 
monthly meetings of policy planners representing 
all Government agencies active in cultural rela- 
tions in the five main geographic areas of the 
worid: Europe, South America, Africa, the 
Middle East, and the Far East. Exchanges of 
information and ideas take place at these meet- 
ings, which are followed by area forums to which 
nongovenimental agencies are invited. We have 
alreadv gotten our regular meetings on the Far 
East and Africa under way, and we plan to 
organize our other regional groups in the near 


Tliird, we believe tluit we have a responsibility 
for initiating activities to solve some of the broad 
problems of common concern to all groups active 
in this field. East April the Department of State

Need for Basic Appraisal 

Tlie delegates to the Annai)olis conference gen- 
erally agreed tiiat there is a net'd for a piiilosophy 
of international cultural relations; that we must 
mohilize ovir national educational resources; and 
that long-range planning is required for inter- 
national educjitional prognuns. 

AVhat about tlie role of the American tuiiversity 
in this rapidly changing myriad of world events? 
The conferees at Annapolis sensed a less than ade- 
quate response to the Nation's worldwide respon- 
sibilities on the part of our academic circles. 

American institutions of higher learning form 
a nucleus around whicli most of our international 
cultural and economic efforts tuni at the present 
time. The International Cooperation Adminis- 
tration has entered into $77 million worth of con- 
tracts with American universities to hel}) carry 
out a variety of technical assistance projects. 
Al>out 47,000 foreign students were eni-olled at 
^Vuierican colleges last year. According to a sur- 
vey of the Institute of Research on Overseas Pro- 
grams at Michigan State Fnivei-sity, 184 Ameri- 
can universities were conducting 382 international 
progi-ams during the 1957-o8 academic year. It 
goes without saying tliat the lifeblood of our In- 
ternational Educ<ational Exchange Program is 
the wholehearted coopei-ation and participation 
of the American academic communitj'. 

But yet, despite this tremendous burden I>eing 
carried by our schools, there seems to l)e a need 
for a basic appraisal of where we are 1 leaded. 
There are some important questions tliat still 
haven't been answered : 

Can universities answer the demand from 
Africa, Asia, and Latin America for increased 
enrollments of foreign students in view of the 
pressures of limited budgets and an expanding 
school population? 

Is our educational system properly geared to 
the development of a citizenry that will i)e able 
to fulfill the Nation's international rasponsibili- 

January 78, I960 

lies with tact and understanding? According to 
surveys I have seen, 1 percent of our population 
is serving abroad for military, business, academic, 
govermnental, .scientific, and religious puriM)ses. 
How many of these people are aware of their 
cultural missions in addition to their primary 
tasks? Not enough, I'm afraid. 

Will our entire popidation have the worlil out- 
look necessaiy to support a massive effort, to assist 
the peoples of Africa, Asia, and Latin America 
in their struggle for higlier economic and social 

These are the questions that should be carefully 
pondered by the academic world. I feel they de- 
serve consideration with a sense of urgency. 

As a result of the excellent rapport establishe<l 
at the Annapolis conference last April, I rec- 
onnnended that a detailed study be made of the 
relationship of the world of higher learning to 
our international responsibilities. With the finan- 
cial assistance of the Ford Foundation there has 
been established an independent Committee on the 
Imiversity and World Affairs composed of aca- 
demic, governmental, and foundation leadei-s. 
The Committee will issue a reix>rt next summer 
which we liope will serve as an impetus to fin-ther 
cooperative study and action by all interested sec- 
tors of our societj-. 

These are some of the developments which we 
in Government with your help ai-e sponsoring in 
the building of cultural dii)lomacy. They are, I 
believe, an important contribtilion to the perfec- 
tion of communications between the people of the 
United States and the people of the rest of the 

Three Essential Types of Communication 

It seems to me that there are three main types 
of communication that are absolutely essential to 
us today. First of all, comnuniication through 
language — so that people can speak and read and 
listen and learn from tlie .sound of human lips 
and the sight of tlie wi'itten word. It is absolutely 
vit;il today that every American ciiild learn to 
s|)eak at least one, if not two, languages other 
than his own. I hojje to get this message across 
to the teachers of every elementary and secondary 
school in this country, and I hope that some day 
part of the regular curriculum of speech education 
will include the necessity of making speeches in 
a foreign language as well as our own. In any 


event, we must continue an aggressive, dynamic 
campaign to encourage teaching and the learning 
of foreign hxnguages in this country. 

Then tliere is conununication through the com- 
mon bond of the arts, the music, the song, and the 
drama. You are all making a fine and continuous 
contribution in this field. 

Finally, there is communication through per- 
sonal presence— made easier today through the 
wonders of modem transportation— coimnunica- 
tion by confrontation, if you will, when seeing is 
believing and where pe-oples learn of each other 
at first hand by sharing in each other's lives within 
each other's environment. We in America must 
rid ourselves of the psychological bloc many of 
us have about foreignei-s. We must wake up to 
the fact that in the sixties our neighbor are not 
those who live in the next house or the next town 
or the next State ; our neighboi-s are those who live 
in Asia and Africa and Europe and Latin Amer- 
ica, and we nnist be ready and willing to greet 
them and treat them not as foreigners but as close 
associates in a free world. 

Modem transportation will surely bring the 
farthest comers of the earth within the reasonable 
reach of evei-y American citizen — and also of every 
member of the hierarchy of international com- 
mimism. At the same time the forces of freedom 
have brought into being new nations and new 
movements amongst peoples for independence and 
sovereignty which cannot be denied. Interna- 
tional communism is avidly wooing these nations 
and peoples with every possible fomi of seductive 
comnnmication. We of the free world have a very 
great responsibility and obligation to conununicate 
to these people an underetanding of what it means 
to live in freedom. This responsibility is yours 
and mine, and carrying it out effectively is a task 
that will demand the pioneering spirit which has 
always been Ajnerica's and which, God willing, 
will always remain so. 

U.S.-Soviet Lend-Lease Talks 

The Department of State announced on Decem- 
ber 2i (press release 872) that the Soviet Govern- 
ment has agreed to a United States proposal that 
negotiations on the unsettled Soviet lend-lease 
account should begin at Washington on Januai-y 
11, 19G0. 

Charles E. Bohlen, Special Assistant to the 
Secretary of State, will represent the United States 
in these negotiations. Ambassador ISIikhail A. 
Menshikov will represent the Soviet Union. 

U.S. Welcomes Additional 
French Trade Liberalization 

Department Statement 
Press release 881 dated December 29 

Tlie United States welcomes the December 24 
announcement that the French Goverimient on 
January 1, 1960, will remove quantitative restric- 
tions on imports of a wide range of dollar goods. 
This action, which aceords with the GATT objec- 
tives of i-emoving discrimination in trade among 
GATT countries, follows similar steps taken Sep- 
tember 26' and November 5, 1959. It goes far 
toward placing U.S. exporters on an equal basis 
with exporter from other comitries in competuig 
in the French market. 

As a result of this most recent liberalization 
move, French coi^sumere will be able to buy many 
United States goods whose importation has been 
curt.ailed by quota restrictions for many yeare. 
The products freed of quota limitations include 
cotton textiles, work clothing, wool and rayon 
clothing, nylon and other synthetic fabrics, acrylic 
fibers and thread, tires, photogi-aphic color fihn 
and paper, washing nuichines, phonograph rec- 
ords, many chemicals, certain macliine tools, 
wheeled tractoi-s, bourbon whisky, honey, light 
beei-s, dried or smoked fish, fatty acids, and 
numerous other goods. In addition, passenger 
automobiles and tmcks with cylinder capacity of 
3 litei-s and less are f i-eed fi-om import restrictions. 
Higher powered \ehicles had been previously 
liberalized in September. 

The action significantly reduces French discrim- 
ination against dollar goods and is an important 
step toward the United States goal of complete 
elimination of such trade discrimination. The 
United States Government hopes that France will 
continue to make rapid progress in removing 
remaining lestrictions, which include some impor- 
tant, agricultural products.

A Review of the State of the World's Food and Agriculture 


by Clarence L. Miller 


The 10th session of the Conference of the Food 
and Agriculture Organization of the United Na- 
tions (FAO) was held at the Organization's head- 
quarters at Rome, Italy, from October 31 to No- 
vember 20, 1959. The Conference, which meets 
biennially, is the govei-ning body of the Organiza- 
tion, and as such it had before it many questions 
for decision, includmg approval of the program of 
work and budget for 1960-61, election of a number 
of officials and committees, election of new and as- 
sociate member countries, decisions on several 
constitutional and adjninistrative mattei-s, and 
consideration of some special topics. In addition, 
the Conference provided a forum for reviewing 
the state of food and agricidture in the world. 

This report contains a brief surmnary of some of 
the major actions of the Conference in these sev- 
eral categories. 

Elections and Appointments 

B. II. Sen of India, wlio had served for 3 years as 
Director (xeneral, was reelected for a further 4 
years. I^ouis Maire of Switzerland was elected 
Independent Chairman of the FAO Council for 
2 years, r('i)l;icing S. A. Hiisnie of Pakistan, who 
had completed two 2-year terms. 

• .]//■. Miller is the Assistant Secretary for 
Marketing and Foreign Agriculture, Depart- 
msnt of Agriculture, and was the U.S. Dele- 
gate to thn FAO Conference. 

During 1960 the following 25 countries will 
occupy seats on tlie FAO Council : Brazil, Canada, 
Chile, Colombia, Cuba, France, Germany, Ghana, 
India, Indonesia, Iran, Italy, Japan, Lebanon, 
Mexico, Morocco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nor- 
way, Pakistan, Portugal, Thailand, United Arab 
Republic, United Kingdom, and United States. 
In 1961 Australia and Denmark will take up 
membei-ship in the Council, while New Zealand 
and Norway will drop out. 

Max Myers of the United States served as chair- 
man of Connnission I (World Food and Agri- 
cultural Situation), and Ralph W. Phillips of the 
United States Wiis elected rapporteur of Commis- 
sion II (ProgTam of Work and Budget).' 

New Memberships 

The Republic of Guinea was elected to member- 
ship, bringing the total membership of FAO to 
77 countries. Membership was also gi-antetl to 
Cyprus, Nigeria, Somalia, Cameroun, and the Re- 
public of Togo, effective when the trusteeship ends 
or full independence is reached in each case and 
when tlie appropriate instrument of acceptance is 
submitted. Until they assume full memberehip 
they would be granted the status of associate mem- 
bership as specified in article II, paragraphs 3 and 
4, of tlie constitution. (Cameroun and the Re- 
public of Togo declined this slatus.) Tims, pre- 
sumably, by some time in 1960, the membei-ship of 
FAO will have risen to 82 comitries. Associate

Program of Work and Budget 1960 61 

^\J1 se^ients of the Organization's regular pn)- 
grani of work were re\ic\\ed, together with 
related activities carried out under the Expanded 
Technical Assistance Program (ETAP) and in 
projects supported by the Special Fund. The 
progrtun of work includes activities in the follow- 
ing technical and economic fields: (1) land and 
water development, (2) plant production and pro- 
tection, (3) animal production and health, 
(4) fisheries, (5) forestry, (6) nutrition and 
home economics, (7) rural institutions and serv- 
ices, (8) statistics, (9) commodities, and (10) eco- 
nomic analysis. The proposals for work in these 
fields were considered generally sound and were 
approved, together with activities relating to the 
appliciitions of atomic energy in FAO's fields of 
interest and those relating to public information, 
publicutions, the library, and rural legislation. 

A budget of $21,536,850 was approved for the 
bienniura 1960-61. After deducting a payment 
of $2,556,800 to cover the contribution of tlie 
E.xpanded Technical A.ssistance Progi-am toward 
the FAO headquarters costs of this progi-am for 
the 2 years and anticipated miscellaneous income 
of $529,050, the assessment budget to be contrib- 
uted bj' member governments is $18,451,000 for 
the biennium, or $9,225,500 annually. The U.S. 
percentage contribution remains at 32.51 percent. 

The budget includes financial provision for the 
final stages of an internal reorganization of FAO 
which had been approved earlier by the Council. 
Accordingly, the Organization now has four 
major segments, a technical department, an eco- 
nomias department, a department of public 
relations and legal affairs, and a division of 
administration and finance. Each of the three 
departments is headetl by an Assistant Director 
General, who works under the supervision of the 
Director General and the Deputy Director 

The technical department includes seven divi- 
sions, corresponding to the first seven subject- 
matter areas mentioned above. In addition there

is an atomic energy branch attached to the office 
of the Assistant Dii-ector General. 

The economics dcparlnienl is composed of tliree 
divisions, cormspondiiig to the fields of work 
numbered 8, 9, and H) above. 

Within the office of tJie Director General there 
is a i)r<>grarn and biidgel^ry H-rvicc whicii a.ssists

eral, an<I the deparhnents on matters of a pro- 
graming and budgetary nature that require 
centralized attention. 

State of Food and Agriculture 

The Conference noted that in 1958 a 4 percent 
increase in world agricultural production had 
followed the temporary pause in expansion in the 
I)revious year. Information aviiilable indicated a 
further rise in production in 1959, although prob- 
ably not as great as in 1958. 

As in previous years, however, little of the in- 
crease in production had moved into consumption. 
The large cereal crops of 1958, especially in the 
United States, had led to a sharp rise in the unsold 
stocks of wheat and coarse grains. There iiad also 
been a marked increase in stocks of coffee and 
sugar. Thus, while the e<5onomically advanced 
countries were able to increase production rather 
rapidly, the less developed countries found it diffi- 
cult to achieve major increases; nor could they 
afford to import sufficient food to insure adequate 
nutrition for their rapidly growing populations. 

Although the world food problem is partly a 
problem of distribution, and although the avail- 
ability of surplus stocks on concessional terms had 
proved of great value in many ciises, the recent 
virtual disappe^irance of stocks of dairy products 
for use in nutritional programs had demonstrated 
that nutritional improvement could not be ba.sed 
securely on the assumption that surplus stocks 
would always exist. As at its session in 19.57,' 
therefore, the Conference again emphasized that, 
in spite of tlie continued existence of suri>lu8 
stocks, in the long run the develoi)ed countries 
could overcome the twin problems of rural poverty 
and inadequate food supplies only by building up 
their own agricultures and developing balanced 

' For an article on the ninth session of the FAO Confer- 
ence, see md., June 23, 1968, p. 1066. 


Except in a few countries the increase in food 
production seemed to have done little to check the 
rise in the cost of food to consumers, and retail 
food prices had generally continued their slow 
rise during 1958. In most of the more developed 
countries this had occurred largely because of the 
increasing cost and complexity of marketing serv- 
ices. In many of the less developed countries, with 
low agricultural productivity, where population 
and tlie demand for food were rising quickly, food 
prices had tended to increase faster than the cost 
of living as a whole. 

The average annual increase in world food pro- 
duction had recently been only about 0.5 percent- 
age points above the average population growth 
of 1.6 percent, in contrast to the margin of some 
1.5 percent that had been achieved in the earlier 
part of tlie postwar period. The Conference ex- 
pressed its concern at the slackening in the increase 
of production in relation to population that had 
taken place in the less developed regions during 
the last few years. In the less developed regions 
as a whole the average annual margin over popu- 
lation growth was estimated to have fallen from 
nearly 2 percent in the earlier postwar period to a 
little under 1 percent in more recent years. Latin 
America was the only one of the less developed 
regions where food production was expanding 
faster than before. 

The rate both of population growth and of pro- 
duction increase had naturally varied sharply 
from country to country. Examples included 
India, where population was increasing by 1.9 per- 
cent per year and the expansion of production had 
been stepped up from an annual average of 2.8 
percent under the first 5-year plan to 3.9 percent 
during the first 3 years of the second plan; Chile, 
where the rates were estimated as 2.5 percent for 
population and 1.7 percent for production; and 
Pakistan, where food production had recently 
shown little increase in the face of an annual pop- 
ulation growth of 1.6 percent. In several Far 
Eastern countries and in parts of Latin America 
and Africa the increase in j^roduction had recently 
fallen beliind or was barely keeping pace with the 
accelerating growth of population. 

Furthermore, in both the Far East, where the 
wartime setback to production had been particu- 
larly severe, and in Latin America, where the 
population was growing especially rapidly, per 
capita food production was still somewhat below 

the average prewar level, while in Africa, too, it 
appeared recently to have fallen back to approxi- 
mately that level. Because of smaller exports or 
larger imports, per capita supplies of food avail- 
able for consumption in each of the less developed 
regions were slightly higher than before the war. 
Nevertheless, the widespread poor harvests of 1957 
had demonstrated that the immediate situation re- 
mained precarious. 

The Conference noted with concern the deteri- 
oration in the terms of trade for agricultural prod- 
ucts on world markets, which had had serious 
effects for agricultural exporting countries. For 
example, in comparison with the average for the 
relatively stable 2-year period of 1952 and 1953, 
the terms of trade for agricultural products, as 
measured by their purchasing power for manu- 
factured goods, had fallen by some 20 percent. 
Agricultural exporters in general had therefore 
not benefited at all from an increase of about 19 
percent in the volume of their shipments from 
1952-53 to 1958. For the less developed regions 
of the world the volume of agricultural exports 
had increased by 15 percent during this period, 
but their real value had declined by about 3 per- 
cent. Real prices of agricultural products as a 
whole, however, were still appreciably higher than 
during the period of depression immediately be- 
fore the war. 

The relatively unfavorable economic position of 
fann populations, which had lower levels of liv- 
ing, in both goods and services than urban popula- 
tions, received considerable attention in the discus- 
sions. It was pointed out that a part of this 
difSculty was due to the farmer's position as a 
primary producer, since fluctuations in the prices 
of primary products were wider than they were 
in the prices of industrial products. This was 
particularly evident in underdeveloped countries 
which depended on the production of one or two 
agricultural products for sale in the world mar- 
ket. However, it was pointed out that even in the 
United States farm income, as a proportion of na- 
tional income, had been falling rather steadily. 

The difficult position of fanners as a group 
poses a number of serious problems for those 
countries trying to obtain more rapid develop- 
ment of their economies. The lack of capital and 
the extreme difficulty of creating savings from 
jwpulations whose level of existence is extremely 
low were stressed. One obvious conclusion was 


Department of State Bulletin 

tlie necessity of obtaining capital from more 
liigliiy developed countries if any substiuiliul 
measure of economic growth is to be obtained by 
the underdeveloped countries. It was also pointed 
out, liowever, that capital alone could not bo ex- 
pected to overcome the handicaps of malnutrition, 
illiteracy, and lack of teclmical skills. 

Government policies in rejxard to afrricultural 
price stabilization and support also received a 
great deal of attention. A set of guiding prin- 
cii)les which had been developed by a panel of ex- 
perts in accord with a Conference decision in 1957 
brought out some decided differences of opinion, 
and this matter will be given furtlier attention in 
the Council's Conunittee on Commodity Problems 
and in future sessions of the Conference. There 
was a lengthy discussion of commodity problems, 
including the work of the Committee on Commod- 
ity Problems and its subsidiary groups, particu- 
larly the Washington Subcommittee on Surplus 
Disposal. A high degree of interest in and sup- 
port for activities in this field was evident. Fu- 
ture benefits also would seem to be assured if an 
appropriate degree of support and interest can be 
maintained in relation to the increasing and better 
informed participation of underdeveloped coun- 
tries in this work. 

Special Topics 

Several topics received special consideration in 
the Conference. Most of these were related either 
to past or proposed activities in the regular pro- 
gram of work or to activities that might supple- 
ment that program. 

The Conference designated 1961 as a World 
Seed Year, and during 1959-61 a campaign will 
bo conducted to emphasize the advantages of im- 
proved seed and to encourage the less developed 
countries to undertake more adequate seed im- 
provement and distribution programs. 

FAO's work to date on the survey and appraisal 
of resources was approved. It was agreed that 
FAO's role should continue to be that of develop- 
ing methodology and advising countries regarding 
its use, leaving to countries the task of surveying 
and appraising their own resources and planning 
for the most efficient use. It was also agreed that 
plans for evaluation of the work done thus far 
were satisfactory, but it was left to the 11th ses- 
sion of the Conference to determine the future of 
the project within FAO's program of work. 

In a discussion of relations between FAO and 

the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICKF), 
financial problems received particular attention. 
The only basic point of difference that emerged 
related to tlio principles upon which the two or- 
ganizations had based their policies to date. P'AO 
has operated on the principle that the adminis- 
trative and operational costs of projects should be 
met by the budgets for the programs to which 
they were related — in other words, that the full 
cost of a pi-ogram should be tlio subject of action 
by one legislative body. If dill'erent legislative 
bodies allocate funds for different parts of a pro- 
gram or project, it is inevitable tiiat at times short- 
falls will result on one hand or the other. UNI- 
CEF has based its approach on the principles thut 
financing and functional responsibility siiould go 
hand in hand and that one international organiza- 
tion should not transfer funds to another inter- 
national organization. Thus, it is argued that, 
if FAO has the responsibility for the subject- 
matter side of a project, it should cover the cost 
of any work on that side of the project. It is 
argued also that UNICEF is not in fact a fuTid, 
like ETAP and the Special Fund. So long as 
these divergent principles govern the policy de- 
cisions of the two bodies, a reasonable solution to 
the problem is hardly possible. 

The Conference expressed appreciation to the 
UNICEF Executive Board for its action in mak- 
ing available up to $238,000 in 1960 to cover the 
costs of project pei-sonnel that could not be met 
from ETAP funds and for its willingness to con- 
sider extending this interim arrangement through 
1961. It also endorsed the plan for the Director 
General of FAO and the Executive Director of 
UNICEF to hold discussions aimed at finding 
possible solutions to the long-term problem. It 
was recognized that the questions of principle 
could be resolved only by governments and that 
the governments which participate in both FAO 
and the UNICP^F Executive Board should be 
urged to study the problem airefully and to insure 
that tlieir respective representatives followed the 
same line in each governing body, thus making it 
possible for the governing bodies to arrive at 
agreed policies based on principles that are ac- 
cepted in both organizations. 

The Conference considered the Director Gener- 
al's proposal for a "Freedom-From-Hunger Cam- 
paign." It endorsed a campaign extending from 

January 18, 7960 


1960 to 1965 under the general leadership and 
coordination of FAO and with the participation 
of member govemments of FAO, the United Na- 
tions, the specialized agencies, and IAEA; the 
agencies themselves; international nongovernmen- 
tal organizations having consultative status with 
FAO, the United Nations, or the other specialized 
agencies; religious gi-oups; and private organiza- 
tions witliin member countries. The Conference 
also emphasized that objex^tives of the campaign 
can be reached only if the less developed countries 
develop effective and useful action projects; au- 
thorized establishment of a campaign trust fund 
to which voluntary contributions from participat- 
ing member governments, international nongov- 
ernmental organizations, religious groups, private 
foundations, and organizations could be made; 
established an advisory campaign committee of 
10 member govemments (appointed by the Coun- 
cil), a subcommittee on research, and an advisory 
committee of nongovernmental organizations; re- 
quested the Director General to make appropriate 
reports to the Council and proposals to the Con- 
ference for possible inclusion of funds in the 1962- 
63 budget; and requested the Council to keep the 
campaign under review and present proposals and 
comments to the next Conference. 

The Conference had before it a "Forward Ap- 
praisal" covering the period 1959-64, which had 
been prepared by the Director General at the in- 
vitation of ECOSOC. Similar appraisals have 
been prepared by the United Nations and other 
specialized agencies as a basis for consideration 
by ECOSOC of trends and inteiTelationships in 
the economic and social activities of the U.N. 
agencies. The Conference noted the great impor- 
tance attached to work in the fields falling within 
FAO's tenns of reference ; commended the Direc- 
tor General for the careful analysis he and his 
staff had made; indicated general agreement with 
the priorities proposed, noting that they indicated 
a trend which I'eflected the need for greater atten- 
tion to agricultural and food problems; pointed 
out that those priorities could only bo considered 
as general guidelines and would need careful re- 
view in the light of the budget level which may 
bo approved for the years involved; made it very 
clear that the Conference in no way endorsed the 
proposal for a 70 percent increase over the 3-year 
period and that, in fact, it was not prepared at 
that stage to indicate any specific level of increase 

that member govemments might support for 
1962-63 and later bienniums; and authorized the 
transmittal of the "Forward Appraisal" docu- 
ments to ECOSOC, together with the comments 
summarized above. 

Three other special topics — social welfare, 
Mediterranean development, and agrarian re- 
form — were also discussed. The first two of tliese 
were projects authorized by the Conference in 
1957, and there were no proposals for further ex- 
penditures by FAO on these projects. There was 
unusually wide interest in the discussion of 
agrarian reform.^ The general tenor of the state- 
ments, with a few exceptions, was on the practical 
technical aspects of "land reform" or "agrarian 
reform." The Director General set the tone by 
his initial statement reminding the Conference 
that policy decisions in the field of agrarian re- 
form are the prerogatives of governments, while 
FAO's part is to furnish member govemments 
with technical analysis and background informa- 
tion and to function as a clearinghouse of experi- 
ence and information. The Conference recognized 
the importance of agrarian reform in many coun- 
tries and stressed the need for thorough planning, 
adequate land distribution, and proper implemen- 
tation of programs. It also noted that measures 
of agrarian reform must take into account the 
need for maintaining and improving the level of 
agricultural production, as well as the provision 
of adequate supplementary services, such as credit, 
marketing facilities, cooperatives, and extension. 
The Conference endorsed expanded assistance to 
govemments in Latin America and southeast 

Constitutional and Administrative Matters 

Among the many constitutional and adminis- 
trative matters which the Conference acted upon, 
the most significant were these: 

An amendment to the constitution, proposed by 
the United States, was adopted, which provides 
that decisions on the level of the budget shall be 
taken by a two-thirds nuijority of the votes cast 
instead of a simple majority. 

Another amendment transfers from the rules to

The Conference adopted a set of "guiding lines

the light of these ''guiding lines," an agi-eement

General Observations on the Conference 

Tiie lOlli session of tlic FAO Conference was 
the most .substantive, orderly, and businesslike 
session held to date. This no doubt resulted from 
a iuunl)er of factors, among whii-h were the 
following : 

(a) The very thorough preparatoi7 work done 
by the Council, its Pi-ogram Committee, Finance 
Committee, and Connnitfee on Commodity Prol)- 
lems, and the FAO/UNK'EF Joint * Policy 
Connnittee ; ^ 

(b) The fact tJiat the level of the budget was 
not a major issue; 

(c) The lack of major differences on constitu- 
t ional or organizational mattei-s, and the fact that 
political i.ssues were relatively moderate in scope 
and intensity; 

(d) The quality of the documentation, which 
on the whole, was well prepared; and 

(e) The increasing experience of the staff and 
many of the delegations. 

The overall organization of the Conference, 
while it still had some defects, was the l)est that 
has been achieved tlms far. Most di.scussions — 
other thiin general statements by heads of dele- 
gations and final decisions and adoption of sec- 
tions of the Conference report — were carried out 
in the commissions. 

Perhaps the main problem facing FAO in the 
ycai-s ahead is that of insuring that the Organiza- 
tion remain an instrument of its memlx-r govern- 
ments. FAO should be developed further as an 
international forum in which countries can ex- 
change information and ideas and plan for com- 
mon or coordinated action. The United States 
does not l)elieve that the Food and Agriculture 
Organization should become an operating instru- 
ment for carrying out piojects of one couiUry, or

of small groups of countries, or of individuals 
■with particular interests to promote. 


Many of the delegates to this Conference are 
aware that we, in our statements to the 29th and 
31st sessions of the FAO Council, generally ac- 
cepted the idea of the campaign suggested by the 
Director General. My Government has followed 
the development of ideas regarding tliis campaign 
very closely since the proposal was first brought 
forward; also, we had the opportunity of par- 
ticipating in the Council's Ad Hoc Coimuittee 
which worked with the Director General in pre- 
paring suggestions for consideration by the 31st 
session of the Council. Even at the risk of some 
repetition, I should like to now restate our posi- 
tions regarding various important aspects of the 

We appreciate the importance of the problems 
to which the campaign is expected to direct at- 
tention. There can be no question of the great 
need for finding ways of providing more adequate 
nutrition to the large portion of the world's popu- 
lation which may now be considered as inade- 
quately fed. We recognize, too, that this problem 
is apt to become more intense as the population 
upsurge contmues. We have supported FAO's 
efforts to deal with these problems from the time 
the Organization was founded, and we will con- 
tinue to do so. Our comments today, which are 
directed toward the proposals contained in the 
document " before us, are intended to be construc- 
tive and in tlie interest of developing and strength- 
ening FAO as an organization in the service of 
its member countries. With this in mind, I should 
like to make the following points : 

Proposals for Specific Activities 

1. We are pleased to note that progress is being 
made toward the development of more specific 
suggestions regarding tlie content of the proposed 
campaign. Tliose of you who heard our earlier 
statements will recall that one of our preoccupa- 
tions was that this should be a campaign of sub- 

"Miide liy Mr. Miller before a plenary ses.slon of the 
Conference on Nov. 10. 
• FAf) doc. C/51t/l">. 

stance and not one aimed at merely publicizing 
the problems involved in achieving better nutri- 
tion for all. 

2. We are in general agreement with the find- 
ings of the Ad Hoc Committee. The Ad Hoc 
Committee, however, could only go a limited way 
in defining the nature and content of the campaign 
and much remains to be done before there is a 
clear understanding of the manner in which the 
campaign would be carried out and just what 
activities would be undertaken by governments, 
by FAO, and by other organizations, both inter- 
governmental and nongovernmental. 

3. The proposals for specific activities or types 
of activities as set fortli in the document under 
consideration are helpful and provide a basis for 
further discussions. However, the suggestions, 
and particularly those regarding activities to be 
undertaken by member governments, are quite 
general in nature. Comitries, as well as organi- 
zations that might participate, must do a great 
deal of spade work before anything resembling a 
constiiictive and cohesive campaign can be ex- 
pected to emerge. 

4. Perhaps our greatest preoccupation with the 
proposals now before us, including those relating 
to financing, is that they tend imduly to emphasize 
what the FAO stafl' will do rather than what gov- 
ernments will do. It has been our feeling from 
the beginning that the major tasks of the cam- 
paign must fall iipon member governments if 
productive work is to be accomplished and if the 
campaign is to achieve the success we would all 
wish it to have. In this context we visualize 
FAO's role as that of stimulator and coordinator 
and that the FAO staff would actually undertake 
relatively little additional substantive work. 
Rather, we hope that the campaign will 
strengthen the regular work of FAO and not com- 
pete with it. This concept was, I believe, clearly 
in the minds of the Ad Hoc Committee and is em- 
phasized in paragraph 11 of that conunittee's 

5. In view of the responsibility which must 
fall on governments if there is to be a successful 
campaign, we are not at all clear as to the basis of 
the estimates for the cost of the campaign itself. 
In (his connection I would recall that the Dii-ec- 
lor General in his statement to the Council in Jime 
intimated that he felt that perhaps as much as 
$2 million would be necessary in a special fund in 


Deparlment of State Bulletin 

order to carry out a successful cumpaipn. In the 
interval lH>t\veiMi June ami the issuance, at the be- 
<rinnin<; of Auj^ust, of the Conference document 
we ai'e now considering, this figure was increased 
to something of the order of $10 million to $13 
million. At the Siime time we are given no clear 
indication in the document as to the purposes for 
which the contributions, and particularly the $4 
million which might be contributed by govern- 
ments over a 6-year period, would be used. Tliis 
would represent a substantial increase in the con- 
tributions of governments to FAO"s program, and, 
since contributions would presumably be on a 
vohuitan' basis, it is by no means certain that all 
menil)er governments would be prepared to share 
in these contributions. 

My own Government is not now in a position 
to make an additional contribution to the Organi- 
zation, and it may be tliat many other govern- 
ments will find themselves in the same position. 
With regard to the possibilities of finance from 
nongovernmental organizations, we should like to 
know from those organizations themselves just 
how far they might go in meeting the figure of 
$1 million to $1.5 million per year over a G-year 
period, or a total of $6 million to $9 million. 

6. I recognize that FAO could utilize additional 
fluids to good advantage for certain asjiects of the 
campaign. Also, my Government does not see 
any objections to the setting up of a fund to which 
nongovernmental organizations and foundations 
might contribute. Some governments also might 
wish to make special contributions, in line with the 
thinking of the Ad Hoc Committee when it sug- 
gested that "governments might make an initial 
contribution to this fund." However, I believe 
that anytliing that resembles a special levy against 
governments, either for a single year or over a 
period of j'eare, would not be an acceptable ap- 
proach. This may be primarily a question of 
wording, and we would be happy to assist in arriv- 
ing at a suitable wording to describe the financial 
and budgetary aspects of the campaign. 

Special Activities as Contributions to Campaign 

7. Even though we have doubts regarding the 
obtaining of special financing at the level sug- 
gested by the Director General, we do not believe 
that this should be a serious roadblock in the de- 
velopment of the campaign. In fact, a large fund 
in the hands of FAO might itself be a roadblock 

in developing a real worldwide campaign, since it 
would teiul to overemphasize what the FAO staff 
would bo doing as compared with those essential 
parts of the campaign which only governments 
and private organizations can and should do. 

Therefore I should like to emphasize again the 
imi)ortance we attach to the development of an 
approach which encourages each government to 
undertake one or more activities which that gov- 
ernment is prepared to have regarded as its con- 
tribution to the overall campaign. In this 
connection I should point out that oui- Govern- 
ment made available to the Ad Hoc Committee 
a series of suggestions regarding the types of ac- 
tivities which governments, and in some cases 
organizations, might undertake. That list of sug- 
gestions was not in any way intended to be a list 
of things all of which each counti-y should under- 
take. Rather, it wixs merely a series of sugges- 
tions which, taken with suggestions from other 
sources, might indicate to governments the types 
of special projects they could undertake as con- 
tributions to the campaign. 

Thus, one government might undertake only one 
or two special activities; another government 
might undertake three or four. In areas where 
several governments undertook work in the same 
field, FAO could perform a useful function in 
keeping each of them informed of the action con- 
templated by the otliere and in arranging for 
coordination where that was deemed desirable. 
By this approach a whole series of activities might 
be undertaken around the world which could have 
a vei-y large total effect on the improvement of 
agriculture and human nutrition. In this respect 
we visualize the campaign as something which 
might be developed along the same general lines 
as those followed in the International Geophysical 

Phasing, Organizing, and Planning 

8. The document before us contains some pro- 
posals regarding the phasing and the organization 
of the campaign. The suggested phasing seems 
to us satisfactory, although to some degi'ee it is 
necessary to withhold judgment until the full na- 
ture and content of the campaign becomes more 
apparent. We endorse the proposal for a special 
campaign committee, consisting of member gov- 
ernments, which would advise the Director Gen- 
eral on the development of the campaign. Tliis 

January 18, I960 


coiniiiitt€« might function under the aegis of the 
Council. "We are also in general agreement with 
the idea of a research advisoiy committee. How- 
ever, to avoid confusion and to insure that re- 
search projects are properly coordinated witli 
other phases of the campaign, we believe that the 
research group should be an advisory subcommit- 
tee of the main campaign committee. We ai-e also 
in favor of the proposal for an advisory commit- 
tee of those nongovernmental organizations which 
have recognized status with FAO, assuming that 
those organizations do expect to participate in 
and contribute to the campaign. 

9. I should like to mention one other problem 
which causes us some concern. A campaign of 
the scope of the one proposed will involve a great 
(leal of work if it is to be successful. It is hoped 
that most of tliat woi-k would be done by member 
governments or nongovernmental organizations. 
At the same time FAO would be carrying forward 
its regular program of work as well as its techni- 
cal assistance programs, which, of course, have 
the same objectives as does the campaign. Some 
additional workload would inevitably be placed 
upon the FAO staff. We are eager to insure that 
tlie campaign is so planned and so developed that 
this extra workload is kept to a minimum and 
that the regular program of work will he dis- 
rupted as little as possible. 

This Conference will approve a regular pro- 
gi-am of work for the next 2 years. It is a sub- 
stantial program and will provide a full work- 
load for the staff. There are in it certain changes 
in emphasis whereby it will contribute more effec- 
tively to meeting the needs of member govern- 
ments. Certain other changes may be made in 
subsequent biennial programs also aimed at giving 
more effective service to member governments. 
This we believe to be a sound appi-o:ich. At the 
same time we would consider it very unfortunate 
if such largo demands were placed on the staff 
members for special activities in connection with 
the proposed campaign which are not included in 
tlie approved program of work that they would 
1)0 unable to implement a substantial portion of 
tlie activitie,s agi-oed to by this ConfeiTuce. In 
other words, we should not, in our zeal to assist 
member governments in one respect, cut off or 
diminish the assistance which the Organization is 
in position to give under its regular progi-am of 
work. Perhaps our apprehension arises fix)m the 

lack tiius far of a clearcut, carefully costed pro- 
gram of work for the campaign, including a clear 
indication of the extent to which the regular .staff 
would be called upon to participate. 

10. Just a brief word regarding the title. We 
believe that the title selected should be one that is 
positive, does not create false Iiopes, appeals to 
reason rather than emotions, ajid is readily trans- 
latable into the three official languages. We be- 
lieve that the present proposal, i.e. "Freedom- 
From-Hunger Campaign," constitutes a substan- 
tial improvement over the initialh' proposed title, 
''Free the World from Hunger Year." We would 
have prefeiTed a title such as "International Food 
Campaign," but on this question we would be pre- 
pared to accept "Freedom-From-Hunger Cam- 
paign" if a majority of the member countries feel 
that tliere is no better alternative. 

U.S. Support of Campaign 

11. Finally, I would like to indicate that the 
United States is prepared to support, the Ciimpaign 
in various ways. Some of the possibilities include 
distribution of infonnational materials and pub- 
lications in our country on as broad a basis as the 
supplies permit: stimulation of public discussion, 
pai'ticularly on the land-grunt-college and univer- 
sity campuses, in farm organization groups, and 
in other groups which have definite interests in 
food problems; participation in research projects 
insofar as these are of direct interest to and can 
be fitted into existing i)rograms of our Federal 
and State institutions; and continuing to give sup- 
jiort to activities in other comitries through U.S. 
bilatei'al activities within the framework of con- 
tinuing programs. In addition I should say that 
we are prepared to participate in the special cam- 
paign committee and a subcommittee to advise on 
research activities if the Conference agrees to the 
establishment of these bodies and requests us to 
participate, thus assisting in the further planning 
and development of tlie campaign. 

I hope, Mr. Chairman, that I have been able to 
make it clear that we of tbe United States delega- 
tion do believe that the campaign can make sub- 
stantial contributions to tlie solution of the world 
food problems and tliat we are prepared to par- 
ticipate in it. If I have appeared to take a ques- 
tioning attitude on some points it is because we in 
the United States delegation believe sincerely that 
the campaign can be really effective only if it is 


Department of Sfafe Bulletin 


developed primarily as an lu-tivity of goveniinents 
and that the main i-esponsihility for action must 
rest with the meml>er •rovernments. Wo feel that 
an attempt, to develop the campaign on any other 
basis could only lead to inetrective action and 
frustration. I hoixs tiierefore, that we can agi-ee 
on a positive approach along the general lines I 
have tried to set forth. 

Proposals Regarding Resolution 

Now, Mr. Chainnan, in the light of the fore- 
going comments, I should like to suggest that this 
Conference adopt a resolution along the followiu"- 

Fii-st, the resolution should recognize that FAO 
is, accoixling to its constitution, the principal 
agency witliin the United Nations family of 
agencies for the promotion of international coop- 
eration designed to achieve the objectives of the 
|)roposed campaign. 

Second, the resolution should also recognize the 
urgency and importance of increased national 
efforts toward these objectives, in view of the 
growing needs for food and agi-icultm-al products 
as a result of the expansion in world population. 

Tliird, the resolution might include decisions 
aimed at: 

(a) authorizing an international campaign 
beginning in 1960 and culminating in a World 
P'ood Congress, perliaps in 1963, and in a review 
of the final a<?«omplislunents of the campaign in 
the FAO Conference in 1965; 

(b) establishing a sijecial campaign conunittee 
comix)sed of representatives of jjerhaps 10 mem- 
ber govenmients, which would serve until the 11th 
session of the Conference and would exercise gen- 
eral oversight o\er the campaign on tehalf of 
the Council and the Conference: 

(c) establishing a research subconnnittee, com- 
posed also of perliaps 10 countries, on the under- 
standing that countries would supply individuals 
selected for their competence and experience in 
agricultural research (This group would sei-ve as 
a siilK'ommitteo, of the special campaign cx>mmittee, 
and would likewise .serve until the 11th .session of 
the Conference. ) ; 

(d) authorizing the Director General to l)egin 
preparations of basic studies just as soon as these 
proposals had been reviewed by the i-esearch sub- 
committee and the sfxicial campaign committee 
and the funds were available to cover the costs; 

January 18, 1960 

(e) authorizing the ewtablisliment of a cam- 
l>aign fund to be administered in occoi-d with 
FAO's financial regulations and to which nongov- 
ernmental organization.s, private foundations, and 
individuals, as well as, in some cases, member 
governments, might make voluntary contributions 
for purposes to U^ agreed uiK)n by the special 
campaign committee. 

Fourth, the resolution should authorize the 
Director General to invite the cooperation of the 
United Nations and other agencies in the U.N. 
family of agencies in those aspects of the cam- 
paign falling within their tenns of reference and 
of interest to them. 

Finally, the resolution should i-equest the Coun- 
cil to keep the campaign under review, to receive 
reports from the special campaign committee and 
its research subcommittee, and to present to the 
11th session of the Conference a detiiiled report on 
the then current status of the campaign and on 
proposed further ac.ti\-ities and their financial 

I make these, suggestions, Mr. Chairman, not as 
a formal i-esolution but rather to provide the 
framework for a i-esolution which can be pre- 
pared at a later stage, when the precise nature of 
this Conference's conclusions are evident. 


Freedom-From-Hunoeb Campaign 
The Conference 
Considering that 

(a) a large part of the world's population .still does 
not have enough to eat, and an even larger part does not 
get enough of the right kinds of food, 

(b) the increase in food prcxluction only barely exceeds 
[wpulation growth, 

(c) the incre-ase in food production i)er capita is least 
marked in the less develoixnl parts of the world, 

(d) food production in developed countries is being 
held back by llmite<l marketing iiossibilitles abroad and 
that even so, 8uri)lusos of some coniniixlities have accum- 
ulated in some countries, and 

(e) under its Constitution F.VO is the principal agency 
within the United .Nations family of international agen- 
cies resi)onsible for the en<'ouragement of and aid to 
countries in raising levels of fixxl prfHluctlon, consump- 
tion, and nutrition.

Accomplishments of 14th Session 
of U.N. General Assembly 

Statement hy Henry Cabot Lodge 

U.S. Representative to the United Nations'^ 

1. From the standpoint of the tough fiber of the 
United Nations — of its ability to function con- 
tinuously through fair weather and foul— mi- 
doubtedly the most significant accomplishment of 
the 14th General Assembly was the decision to 
continue to finance the United Nations Emergency 
rorce,= which is keeping the peace in the Gaza 
Strip and at the entrance to the Gulf of Aqaba. 
The vote was actually larger than last year — a 
most encouraging sign of steadfastness.

bassador Lodge before the United Nations Corresix)ndents 
Association on Dec. l."> (U.S. delegation press release 

' Bulletin of Dec. 21, 1959, p. 919. 

This was achieved in spite of the Soviet Union's 
continued default on this prime oi)ligulion both of 
law anil of honor, in spite of tJie strong human 
tendency to lose interest in something which is 
no longer dramatic, and in spite of the i-oal diffi- 
culty wliich many states have in finding the money. 

That all these factoi-s should have In-en overcome 
is a tribute to the of the United Nations 
that failure to continue UNEF would speedily 
create a dramatic — and dangerous — situation. 

2. From the standpoint of the abilily of the 
Soviet Union and the United States to reach agree- 
ment, the resolution creating the new United Na- 
tions Committee on Outer Space ^ is, I believe, the 
most substantial achievement in the 14 years that 
the United Nations has been in existence. Out6r 
space, certainly, should be a field in which earth- 
bound international difFerences are left behind 
and in whicli men work together for the common 

It is particularly pertinent that agreement to 
create this Committee only came about after pro- 
longed and arduous negotiations, showing that an 
efficient working arrangement between the TTnited 
States and the Soviet Union will not be achieved 
merely by waving a wand or by wishful thinking. 
Only by long, hard work will such agreements be 
hammered out. The differences between the two 
nations are real differences — and not merely mis- 
understandings. They reflect not only such usual 
factors as geography and economics but, in addi- 
tion, a different view of the world and of the na- 
ture of man. To bring about a relatively efficient 
working arrangement under such circumstances is 
a prickly business. But in this shrinking world 
the effort must lie made. 

3. From the standpoint of the less developed 
countries — and of human freedom — a very signi- 
ficant development was the increased money which 
member states have pledged fo the United Nations 
Special Fund ' for i(s second year. This is the 
fund which, under the direction of Paul Hoffman, 
makes preinvestment surveys and promotes tech- 
nical education in the newly developing countries. 
The future of those countries, inhabited by over a 
billion human beings, presents a challenge even 
more difficult and more pressing than the Com- 
munist menace.

' For a statement on progress of the Fund, see tfttd., 
Nov. 9, 19.^9, p. 689. 

January 18, 7 960 


The money for the Fund's second year will be 
about 50 percent more than the $26 million which 
it had for its first year. Every dollar of preinvest- 
ment work by the Special Fund can pave the way 
for hundreds of dollars in capital investment. 
Thus it can give these peoples new hope that they 
can conquer poverty without resorting to the 
totalitarian methods of communism. 

The increase in the Special Fund is therefore a 
sign that United Nations members are aware of 
the trend of the future. 

4. From the standpoint of the future of the 
United Nations were decisions affecting two 
United Nations trust territories in Africa. 
Somalia will become independent on July 1, 1960. 
Also, the people of the British Cameroons will 
vote in 1960 or 1961 on which of their two neigh- 
bors they will join — Nigeria or Cameroun, both 
about to become independent.'* These steps are 
part of the movement toward independence which 
is sweeping Africa and which, in 1960 alone, will 
bring at least four new African nations into the 
United Nations — and still others in succeeding 

These new nations will not only add to the mem- 
bership of the United Nations; they will also 
bring new viewpoints to bear on the problems of 
the world. For the United States, which has more 
people of African Negro descent in it than any 
other country in the world except Nigeria, this is 
a particularly welcome prospect. 

5. Then the 14th General Assembly passed a 
resolution protesting the Cliinese Communist 
wholesale murder of the people of Tibet.'^

of civilized mankind against the brutalization of

General Assembly Fails To Adopt 
Resolution on Algeria 

Statements hy Heni'y Cabot Lodge 

U.S. Representative to the General Asseiribly 


It is evident from wliat has been said in this 
committee on the Algerian question that there 
exists a spirit of conciliation. Such a spirit is in- 
dispensable to any early solution of the problem. 
The United States welcomes this spirit. 

We favor a just, peaceful, and democratic solu- 
tion. "We are anxious to see an end to violence and 
bloodshed. We hope tliat effect will be given to 
the aspirations of the people of Algeria by 
peaceful means. 

"\A'e favor the use of every appropriate means 
by tliose principally concerned, and early steps 
by them, to bring about a peaceful settlement. 
Clearly no solution is possible without good faith 
and restraint by all concerned. 

A prospect for peace has been made evident.

Department of State Bulletin 

But to make tlmt prospect into a reality is not 
easj'. The bitterness of conflict, the shaiiow of 
fear, and the gnawing worry of uncertainty all 
add to the inherent complexities of tlie problem. 

On Septemlier 16 the President of tlie P'rencli 
Kepubiic, (ieneral Charles de Gaulle, made a far- 
reaching and signilicant declaimtion concerning 
the problem of Algeria. To be sure, this state- 
ment must be read lus a whole, but there are certain 
points which the United States believes deserve 
si)ecial emphasis and attention during our dis- 
cussion here. 

First, General de Gaulle made clejir the inten- 
tion of France to solve the problem of Algeria 
by permitting the Algerian people a free choice as 
to their future. The application to Algeria of the 
principle of self-determination was thus recog- 
nized sijecifically. The United States welcomed 
this declaration. In General de Gaulle's words: 
"We can now look forward to tlie day when the 
men and women of Algeria will be in a position to 
decide their ovn\ destiny, once and for all, freely 
and in the full knowledge of what is at stake." 

Prasident Eisenhower stated in his press con- 
ference on September 17:= "It is a far-reaching 
declaration, containing explicit promises of self- 
determination for the Algerian peoples and as 
such, completely in accord \\'ith our hopes to see 
proclaimed a just and liberal program for Algeria 
which we could supjwrt." 

The United States was also encourage<l by the 
responses which General de Gaulle's proposals 
evoked. They indicate awareness that a significant 
new commitment has been made — a commitment 
which furnishes a basis for concrete discussions. 

It was in the liglit of General de Gaulle's his- 
toric declaration, furthermore, that Secretary of 
State Herter said on September 22= tliat the 
United States "naturally hopes that no action will 
be taken here which would prejudice the realiza- 
tion of a just and peaceful solution for Algeria 
such as is promised by General de Gaulle's far- 
reaching declaration with its provision for self- 
determination by the Algerian people." 

To this end the United States hopes that the 
members of this committee will see the wisdom of 
avoiding a resolution which could prejudice a 
solution of the Algerian problem. 

The speeches made here — in and of them- 

' Bulletin of Oct. 12, 1959, p. 500. 

selves— will have an effect on those principally 
concerned. It mu.s-t also be clear that recent 
statements by those i)rincipally conceniexl offer 
real hope that a just, i>eaceful, and deuux-ratic 
solution can soon l)e found. And it also be 
apparent that the sense of this debate is that those 
principally concerned should make early use of 
even- appropriate means to achieve a solution. 

Wo hoi)e, therefore, Mr. Ciuiinnan, that these 
considerations will be weighe<l carefully before 
l)rf)posals are introduced and pressed to a vote. 
Injudicious action here risks bringing in extrane- 
ous factoi-s which might endanger the chances for 
direct, negot iations. At sucii a moment as this the 
utmost caution is not only warranted; it is 

We ciui understand why some delegations seek 
to impart, further momentum to what they al- 
ready admit are favorable developments. But if 
such membei-s look at the present situation care- 
fully — as they must— they will surely conclude 
that we are at the thresliold of one of tliose historic 
occasions in which those principally concerned 
should be unhampered and allowed to seek direct 

The United States continues to believe that in 
the interests of all concerned moderation, re- 
straint, and patience should be the watchwords. 
It is in this spirit that the United States will con- 
duct itself during the remainder of this debate.'' 


In my statement in committee December 2 I 
referred to the far-reaching and significant decla- 
ration conceniing the problem of Algeria made 
on September 16 by General de Gaulle. I s;ud 
that there are now real hopes that a just, peace- 
ful, and democratic solution of this problem can 
soon be found. I then expres.sed the hope that 
the General Assembly would see the wisdom of 
avoiding a resolution which could i)ivjudice the 
solution of the Algerian problem, emphasizing our

belief that moderation, restraint, and patience 
should be the watchwords. 

Guided by these considerations, we carefully 
examined the revised resolution on Algeria on 
which the General Assembly has just voted.^ The 
United States did not vote in favor of this reso- 
lution, since we believe that, notwithstanding the 
modifications wliich it contains, it is not likely to 
be helpful in promoting an early and just solu- 
tion. Moreover, this resolution also fails to take 
into account the most significant development on 
this question since it has been before the United 
Nations, that is, the forward-looking proposals 
of General de Gaulle. 

This resolution, however, embodies two prin- 
ciples which are of fundamental importance in 
our history and tradition : the principle of self- 
determination and the principle of seeking solu- 
tions to difficult problems through peaceful means. 
These principles we strongly endorse. 

The United States therefore abstained in the 
vote on this resolution. 

I should like to add in closing that the United 
States Government reaffinns its conviction that 
the forward-looking declaration of General de 
Gaulle offers the best prosjjects for a peaceful, just, 
and democratic solution of the Algerian problem.

cemed with both the economic and social activities 
of the United Natioios. 

Quit« frankly, we had not intended to intervene 
at this particidar juncture in the debate. We 
would have preferred to hear the views of many 
more delegations than time has allowed thus far. 
We are doing so, however, because many delega- 
tions, botli privately and publicly, have asked for 
our views and have urged us to express them at 
this time. 

I think one of the most difficult problems in- 
volved in a consideration of freedom of informa- 
tion is to amve at a meaning of freedom of 
information which is both precise and acceptable 
to all. For example, freedom of information to 
one may mean state control of the press, to another 
license, and yet to another a point somewhere in 
between. We have clearly seen this to be tlie case 
during the debate this year. Moreover, the course 
of the debate so far has revealed serious miscon- 
ceptions about the U.S. attitude toward freedom 
of information. For this reason, I would like to 
devote the next few minutes to a clear exposition 
of our position on this complex and highly impor- 
tant subject. 

The U.S. Position 

Freedom of information in the United States is 
recognized as a cornerstone of liberty, as it is in 
every country which believes in freedom for the 
individual. The need to know, to be informed, is 
a deep-seated urge in all mankind. It is more 
than a need ; it is a hunger for facts and ideas, a 
hunger for the means to think and to understand 
events and situations. The urge is to listen as well 
its to speak, to learn as well as to tesvch, to judge 
the fact as well as to plan the action. Only as 
men and women are able to satisfy this hunger can 
they feel they are valued fully as human beings. 
The right to know is a part of hinnan dignity ; the 
right to seek the truth is a foundation of liuman 

It is for this reason that any withholding of 
information instantly arouses su.spicion. Censor- 
ship breeds only fear and insecurity. Within 
nations such limitations imdermine confidence; 
between nations tliey jeopardize i)eace. Full ac- 
cess to the news is the onlj- basis on whicli we can 
hope to build strong democracies and popular 
understanding of and .support for a strong United 


Department of State Bulletin 

This lias been said beforo, but it ouinot be said 
too often. Ijrnoranoe and false report have lon<i 
been recognizod a.s tho shackles by wiiich tyrants 
luid dictntore control the peoples under their rule. 
In a fitv soiMety there is sinyial oiuse to keep up 
with the course of events. Whei-ever the ultimate 
decisions rest with the i^eople, it is obvious that 
intellifrent decisions can bo made only in the lijrht 
of ailequate knowledge. As a practical matter, 
this means full and rapid access to all possible 
news — in the daily pi-e,s.s, through radio and all 
other media of information. 

On this point Thomas Jefferson, the author of 
our Declaration of Independence, felt strongly on 
the necessity for information in a government of 
the people. He once wrote that if he were forced 
to choose between a government without news- 
paper, on the one hand, and newspafjere without 
government, on the other, he would not hesitate to 
l>refer the newspapci-s. Jeffei-son maintained tliis 
view even though he was severely criticized in the 
press. I need hardly point out that no United 
States President since that time has escaped the 
shaq7 barb of hostile press criticism and that such 
criticism has often been unfair and unfounded. 

There can be no question of the importance the 
United States attaches to freedom of information. 
Our belief in this freedom is implicit in our system 
of education, in the tremendous variety of our 
newspapers and our broadcasting systems, our 
magazines, and all other media of communication. 
Our aim is laiowledge for eveiyone with sources 
sufficient that each may seek the truth for himself. 
I^et me stress this again. Onlj' through sufficient 
sources of information can the individual be in po- 
sition to decide for himself what is true. In this 
we believe that we are at one with all other free 
peoples in the United Nations. 

Framework for News Media Development 

There are also wide areas of agreement we share 
with other countries on the means by which free- 
dom of information can be achieved. We are in 
agreement on the need to develop news media of 
all kinds; it is academic to expect adequate infor- 
mation in aretis which lack sufficient media and 
opportunities for training journalists. With this 
in mind, the United States delegation to the last 
session of the Human Rights Commission cospon- 
sored a verj- important resolution with Ceylon, 

India, Iran, Italy, Me.xico, and the Philippines. 
This lesolution reciuested a report from the Sec- 
rotary-(ieneral which infer alia would review the 
problems encountered in providing to underd©- 
veloi)ed countries technical assistance in the infor- 
mation field. This resolution was adopted by a 
large majority both in the Commission and sub- 
sequently in the Council.^ But let us not forget 
that there would Ije little point to providing media 
and training journalists if the free flow of infor- 
mation is then hampered by censorship, jamming, 
or other artificial barriers. 

The United States attitude toward freedom of 
speech and press is based on constitutional guar- 
antees which prohibit the passage of legi.slation in- 
fringing these rights. This is provided in the 
first amendment, in the section known as our Bill 
of Rights. It says simply that "Congress shall 
make no law . . . abridging the freedom of 
speech, or of the press ....'' Tliis amendment 
has been in force for more than 100 years. It has 
kept our media of information free from Govern- 
ment control and regulation. This is the frame- 
work in which our great newspapers and radio and 
television systems have developed: while they re- 
spect and conform to laws forbidding libel, ob- 
scenity, and other infringements on public order, 
they know that these cannot be used to justify cen- 
sorship or interference in presenting facts and 

You may argue that this prohibition indicates 
a distnist of authority. I would say quite o]:)enly 
that this is the case. Our feeling goes back to tlie 
days before we became an independent nation, 
when our newspapers often had to be licensed and 
were at the mercy of foreign governoi-s. We have 
learned to fear any attempt, direct or indirect, to 
control freedom of information, lest it lead to sup- 
pression and tyranny. We have learned the hard 
way, if I may borrow a popular phrase, that no 
government, however good or highly motivated, 
should be trusted with power over the rights of 
evei-y individual to know and to think. We have 
learned also the two reasons why this is so: fii-st, 
that governments may change, and second, that

It has been suggested that such freedom gives 
rise to abuses. Of course freedom of any kind 
carries with it the possibility of abuse, but this is 
hardly justification of denial of the freedom. We 
should be careful, moreover, not to confuse real 
abuses with the legitimate reporting of news 
wliich, thougli accurate, deeply offends an in- 
dividual or a nation. 

Admitting to the possibility of abuse under a 
genuinely free press, we would do well to get a real 
perepective on the subject. INIany of the state- 
ments so far made have implied that abuses can 
only occur in a tmdy free press. This is far from 
the truth. Few members of this committee need 
be reminded that some of the most vicious abuses 
of information media occur under systems in 
which freedom of information is either rigidly 
controlled or nonexistent. Tliere, through com- 
plete government monopoly of all information 
media, news is manipulated and the "big lie'' tech- 
nique employed as official government policy. 

We could, of couree, with considerable eil'ective- 
ness, cite examples of the most extreme abuse of 
press media under such circumstances. But 
surely such tactics do not contribute to a produc- 
tive consideration of the business before us. For 
our part, therefore, we will refrain from indulging 
in such tiictics. 

Madam Chainnan, I have tried to present 
something of the philosophy of my Govennnent 
on freedom of information. Before concluding. 
I wish to make a few brief remarks on the Con- 
vention on Freedom of Infonnation now before 
us.^ As all of you know, we have not in the past 
felt that the proposed convention is an adequate 
or effective means of protecting the infornnition 
media of our time or of promoting the riglit of 
everyone to full and free access to the facts. We 
continue in tliis belief, because we have se«n noth- 
ing to convince us to the contrary — to con^nnce us 
that international legislation of this type is in fact 
the way to achieve progress. At the same time 
we are fully aware that many other delegations 
do not agree with us and, indeed, that they do

attach the greatest importance to the adoption of

to assure you that my delegation will not attempt 
in any way to imiJede the progress on the conven-

the greatest importance to freedom of informa- 
tion, my delegation will take part in the debate

Appointment of Political Adviser 
to High Commissioner of Ryukyus 

Press release 870 dated December 22 

The Departments of State and Defense on De- 
cember 22 announced tlie establishment of the 
office of Political Adviser to the High Commis- 
sioner of the Ryukyu Islands, Lt. Gen. Donald P. 

Byron E. Blankinship, a career Foreign Serv- 
ice officer and heretofore the American consul 
general at Naha in the Ryukyus, has been ap- 
pointed to the new position. Mr. Blankinship 
will assume his new duties on January 1, 1960. 

The new office has been established as the out- 
gro^vth of lengthy discussions between the Depart- 
ments of State and Defense.. The consul general 
at Naha has hitherto acted concurrently as foreign 
relations consultant to the High Commissioner. 
The new arrangement divorces the senior repre- 
sentative of the Secretary of State in the Ryukyus 
from consular duties and permits him to devote 
full time to the responsibilities of this new office. 
The American consular unit at Naha will continue 
to perform the normal functions of a U.S. consular 

The assigmnent of a political adviser to top- 
level Defense Department officials elsewhere in 
the world has proved effective in insuring the 
closest possible working relationship between the 
Departments of State and Defense in areas where 
activities of the latter Department directly affect 
the conduct of U.S. foreign relations. 

The Ryukyu Islands constitute one of the most 
important strategic outposts in the interlocking 
system of the free world's defenses. The treaty 
of peace with Japan ' gave to the United States 
the right to exercise all and any powers of admin- 
istration, legislation, and jurisdiction over these 

In his Executive order of June 5, 1957,^ the 

President delegated this authority to the Secretary 
of Defense, on whose behalf the High Commis- 
sioner directs and heads the civil administration of 
the area. In the same Executive order the Presi- 
dent also charged the Secretary of State with the 
responsibility for the conduct of relations with 
foreign countries and international organizations 
with respect to the Ryukyus. The political ad- 
viser will serve as the field representative of the 
Secretary of State in the discharge of this respon- 
sibility and will provide ready access for the High 
Commissioner to the worldwide facilities of the 
diplomatic and consular services of the Depart- 
ment of State.

The State of the Union 


Mr. Pkf.sidext, Mr. Si'eaker, ilEMHEUs of the 

86th Congress, My Fellow Citizens : 
Seven j-e^ii-s ago I entered my pi-esent office with 
one long-held resolve overi'iding all others. I 
was then, and remain now, determined that the 
United States shall become an ever more potent 
resource for tlie cause of peace — realizing that 
peace cannot be for oui-selves alone, but for peo- 
ples eveiTwhere. This detennmation is, I know, 
shared by the entire Congress — indeed, by all 

My purpose today is to discuss some features of 
Amei-ica's position, both at home and in lier rela- 
tions to othei-s. 

First, I pomt out that for us, annual self-exam- 
ination is mude a definite necessity by the fact 
that we now live in a divided world of uneasy 
equilibrium, with our side committed to its own 
protection and against, aggi-ession by the other. 

With both sections of this divided world in pos- 
session of unbelievably destiiictive weapons, 
mankind approaches a state where mutual 
annihilation becomes a possibility. Xo other fact 
of today's world equals this in importance — it 
colors everj'thing we say, plan, and do. 

There is demanded of us vigilance, determina- 
tion, and the dedication of whatever portion of 
our resources that will provide adequate security, 
especially provide a real deterrent to aggression. 
These things we are doing. 

All these facts emphasize the importance of 
striving incessantly for a just peace. 

Only through the strengthening of the spiritual. 

•H. Dw. 241, SGth Cong., 2d sess. President Eisen- 
hower read a sliglitly condensed version of the message 
before a joint session of the Congress on Jan. 7. 

intellectual, economic, and defensive resources oi 
the free world can we, in confidence, make prog- 
ress toward this goal. 

Second, we note that recent Soviet depoilment 
and pronouncements suggest the possible opening 
of a somewhat less strained period in the relation- 
ships between the Soviet Union and the rest of the 
world. If these pronouncements be genuine, there 
is brighter hope of diminishing the intensity of 
past rivalry and eventually of substituting persua- 
sion for coercion. Whether this is to become an 
era of lasting promise remains to be tested by 

Third, we now stand in the vestibule of a vast 
new technological age — one that, despite its capac- 
ity for hiunan destruction, has an equal capacity 
to make poverty and human misery <)I)sol('lo. If 
our efforts are wisely directed — and if our unre- 
mitting efforts for dependable peace begin to 
attain some success — we can surely become partic- 
ipants in creating an age characterized by justice 
and rising levels of human well-being. 

Over the past year the Soviet Union has 
expressed an interest in measures to reduce the 
common peril of war. 

While neither we nor any other free world 
nation can permit ourselves to be misleil by 
pleasant promises imtil fhey are tested by per- 
formance, yet we approach this apparently new 
opportunity witli the utmost seriousness. We 
must strive to break the calamitous cycle of frus- 
trations and crises which, if uncliecked, could 
spiral into nuclear disaster; the ultimate insanity. 

Tliough the need for dejiendable agreements to 
assure against resort to force in settling disputes 
is apparent to both sides yet as in other issues 
dividing men and nations, we cannot expect 

January 25, J 960 


sudden and revolutionary results. But we must 
find some place to begin. 

One obvious road on which to make a useful 
start is in the widening of communication between 
our two peoples. In this field there are, both 
sides willing, countless opportunities — most of 
them well known to us all — for developing mutual 
understanding, tlie true foundation of peace. 

Another avenue may be through tlie reopening, 
on January 12, of negotiations looking to a con- 
trolled ban on the testing of nuclear weapons. 
Unfortunately, tlie closing statement from the 
Soviet scientists who met with our scientists at 
Geneva gives the clear impression that their con- 
clusions have been politically guided.- Those of 
the British and American scientific representa- 
tives are their own freely formed, individual and 
collective opinions. I am hopeful that, as new 
negotiations begin, trutli — not political opportun- 
ism — will guide the deliberations. 

Still another field may be found in the field 
of disarmament, in which the Soviets have pro- 
fessed a readiness to negotiate seriously.^ They 
have not, however, made clear the plans they may 
have, if any, for mutual inspection and verifica- 
tion — the essential condition for any extensive 
measure of disarmament. 

There is one instance where our initiative for 
peace has recently been successful. A multi- 
lateral treaty ^ signed last month provides for the 
exclusively peaceful use of Antarctica, assured 
by a system of inspection. It provides for free 
and cooperative scientific research in that con- 
tinent, and prohibits nuclear explosions there 
pending general international agreement on the 
subject. I shall transmit its text to the Senate for 
consideration and approval in the near future. 
The treaty is a significant contribution toward 
peace, international cooperation, and the advance- 
ment of science. 

Tlie United States is always ready to partici- 
pate witli tlic Soviet Union in serious discussion 
of these or any other subje^-ts that may lead to 
peace with justice. 

Certainly it is not necessaiy to repeat tlnit tlie

United States has no intention of interfering in 
the internal atfairs of any nation; by the same 
token we reject any attempt to impose its system 
on us or on other peoples by force or subversion. 

This concern for the freedom of other peoples 
is the intellectual and spiritual cement which has 
allied us with more than 40 other nations in a 
common defense effort. Not for a moment do 
we forget that our own fate is firmly fastened 
to that of these countries; we will not act in any 
way which would jeopardize our solemn commit- 
ments to them. 

We and our friends are, of course, concerned 
with self-defense. Growing out of this concern 
is the realization that all people of the free woi'ld 
have a great stake in the progress, in freedom, 
of the uncommitted and newly emerging nations. 
These peoples, desperately hoping to lift them- 
selves to decent levels of living must not, by our 
neglect, be forced to seek help from, and finally 
become virtual satellites of, those who proclaim 
their hostility to freedom. 

Tlieir natural desire for a better life must not 
be frustrated by withholding from them neces- 
sary technical and investment assistance. Tliis is 
a problem to be solved not by America alone, but 
also by eveiy nation cherishing the same ideals 
and in position to provide help. 

In recent years America's partners and friends 
in Western Europe and Japan have made great 
economic progi-ess. Their newly found economic 
strength is eloquent testimony to the striking suc- 
cess of the policies of economic cooperation which 
we and they have pursued. 

The international economy of 1960 is markedly 
different from that of the early postwar yeare. 
No longer is the United States the only major 
industrial country capable of providing substan- 
tial amounts of the resources so urgently needed 
h\ the newly developing countries. 

To remain secure and prosperous themselves, 
wealthy nations must extend the kind of coopera- 
tion to the less fortunate members that will in- 
spire hope, confidence, antl jirogi-ess. A rich 
nation can for a time, without noticeable damage 
to itself, pursue a course of self-indulgence, ma]i- 
ing its single goal llic material ease and comfort 
of its own citizens — thus repudiating its own spir- 
itual and material stake in a. peaceful and pros- 
perous society of nations. But the enmities it will 
incur, the isolation into which it will descend, and

tliP internal moral, spiritual, economic, and politi- 
cal softness that will be enffcmlered, will, in the 
Ii>nj^ term, hrinj; it to disaster. 

America did not become great through softness 
and self-indulgence. Her miraculous progres.s 
and aciiievements (low from otlier (pialities far 
more worlliy and substantial — 

Adherence to princi[)les and motluMls consonani 
with our i-eligious pliilosophy; 

A satisfaction in iiard work; 

Tlie readiness to sacriiice for worthwliile causes; 

The courage to meet every challenge; 

The intellectual honesty and capacity to recog- 
nize tiie true patji of her own best interests. 

To us and to every nation of the free world, rich 
or poor, the,se qualities ai-e necessary today as 
never before if we are to march together to irreater 
security, prosperity, and peace. 

I believe the industrial countries are ready to 
participate actively in supplementing the elforts 
of the developing nations to achieve progi-ess. 

The inunediate need for this kind of cooperation 
is underscored by tlie strain in our international 
balance of payments. (3ur surplus from foreign 
business ti-ansactions hius in recent yeai-s fallen 
substantially short of the expenditures we make 
abroad to maintain our militaiy establishment.s 
overseas, to finance private investment, and to 
]irovide assistance to tlie less developed nations. 
In 10.")9 our deficit in balance of payments ap- 
proached !^-l; billion. 

(Continuing deficits of anything like this magni- 
tude would, over time, impair our own economic 
growtli and check the forward progress of the 
fi'ee world. 

We must meet this situation by promoting a ris- 
ing volume of ex))orts and woi-ld trade. Fuither, 
wo induce all industrialized nations of the 
free world to work together to help lift the 
scourge of poverty from less fortunate nations. 
This will provide for better sharing of this burden 
and for still further prolital>le trade. 

Xew nations, and others struggling with tlie 
problems of development, will progress only, re- 
gardless of any out.side help, if they demonstrate 
faith in their own destiny and pos.sess the will and 
use their own resources to fulfill it. ^Moreover, 
progress in a national transformation can be only 
gradually earned ; there is no easy and quick way 
to follow from the ox cart to the jet plane. But, 
just as we drew on Europe for assistance in our 

c-arlier yeai-s, so now do those new and emerging 
nations that have this faith and determination de- 
serve help. 

Over the last 15 yeiu-s, 20 nations have gained 
political independence. (~)lhei-s are doing so each 
year. Most of them are woefully lacking in tech- 
nical capacity and in investment capital; without 
free-world support in thes(^ matters they cannot 
ellectively progress in freedom. 

Respecting their need, one of the major focal 
points of our concern is the south Asian region. 
Here, in two nations alone, arc almost 500 million 
people, all working, and working hard, to raise 
their standards, and, in doing so, to make of them- 
selves a strong bulwark against the spread of an 
ideology that would destroy liberty. 

I cannot exi>re,ss to you the dej)th of my con- 
viction that, in our own and free- world interests, 
we must cooperate with others to help these people 
achieve their legitimate ambitions, as expressed 
in their different multiycar plans. Through the 
World Bank and other instrumentalities, as well 
as through individual action by eveiy nation in 
position to help, we must squarely face this 
titanic challenge. 

All of us must realize, of course, that develop- 
ment in freedom by the newly emerging nations, 
is no mere matter of obtaining outside financial 
assistance. An indispensable element in this proc- 
ess is a strong and continuing determination on 
the part of these nations to exercise the national 
discipline necessaiy for any sustained develop- 
ment period. These qualities of detei-mination are 
particularly essential because of the fact that the 
process of improvement will necessarily be grad- 
ual and laborious rather than revolutionary. 
Moreover, eveiyone should be aware that the de- 
velopment process is no short-term phenomenon. 
Many yeai-s are required for even the most favor- 
ably situated countries. 

I shall contiinie to urge t!ie American people, 
in the interests of their own security, prosperity, 
and peace, to make sure that their own part of 
tiiis great project be amply and cheerfully sup- 
ported. Free-world decisions in this matter may 
spell the difference between world disaster and 
world progress in freedom. 

Otlier countries, some of whidi I visited last 
month," have similar needs.

A common meeting groimd is desirable for those 
nations which are prepared to assist in the devel- 
opment effort. During the past year I have dis- 
cussed this matter with the leaders of several 
western nations. 

Because of its wealth of experience, the Organi- 
zation for European Economic Cooperation could 
help with initial studies needed.'^ The goal is to 
enlist all available economic resources in the indus- 
trialized free world — especially private investment 
capital. But I repeat that this help, no matter 
how great, can be lastingly effective only if it is 
used as a supplement to the strength of spirit and 
will of the people of the newly developing nations. 

By extending this help Me hope to make pos- 
sible the enthusiastic enrollment of these nations 
under freedom's banner. No more startling con- 
trast to a system of sullen satellites could be imag- 
ined. If we grasp this opportunity to build an 
age of productive partnership between the less 
fortunate nations and those that have already 
achieved a higli state of economic advancement, 
we will make brighter the outlook for a world 
order based upon security, freedom, and peace. 
Othei-wise, the outlook could be dark indeed. We 
face what may be a turning point in history, and 
we must act decisively. 

As a nation Ave can successfully pursue these 
objectives only from a position of broadly based 

No matter how earnest is our quest for guaran- 
teed peace, we must maintain a high degree of 
military effectiveness at the same time we are 
engaged in negotiating the issue of arms reduc- 
tion. Until tangible and mutually enforceable 
arms reduction measures are worked out, we will 
not weaken the means of defending our institu- 

America possesses an enormous defense power. 
It is my studied conviction that no nation will 
ever risk general war against us unless we should 
be so foolish as to neglect the defense forces we 
now so powerfully support. It is worldwide 
knowledge tliat any nation wliicli might be 
tempted today to attack the United States, even 
though our country might sustain great losses, 
would itself promptly suffer a terrible destruction. 
But T oiu-c. again assure all peoples and nil nations 

' Vor text (if a <-oiiiiiinnl(iue issuod by the Western heads 
of (,'iiveniiiieiit iit I'aiLs on Dee. 21, see ihid., Jan. 11,, I). 43. 

that the United States, except in defense, will 
never turn loose this destructive power. 

During the past year our long-range striking 
jDower, unmatched today in manned bombers, has 
taken on new strength as the Atlas interconti- 
nental ballistic missile has entered the operational 
inventoi-y. In 14 recent test laimchings, at ranges 
of over 5,000 miles. Atlas has been striking on an 
average within 2 miles of the target. This is less 
than the length of a jet runway — well within the 
circle of total destruction. Incidentally, there 
was an Atlas firing last night. From all repoiis 
so far received, its performance conformed to the 
high standards I have described. Such perform- 
ance is a great tribute to American scientists and 
engineers, who in the past 5 years have had to 
telescope time and technology to develop these 
long-range ballistic missiles, where America had 
none before. 

This year, moreover, growing numbers of nu- 
clear-powered submarines will enter our active 
forces, some to be armed with Polaris missiles. 
These remarkable ships and Aveapons, ranging the 
oceans, will be capable of accurate fire on targets 
virtually anywhere on earth. Impossible to 
destroy by surprise attack, they will become one 
of our most effective sentinels for peace. 

To meet situations of less than general nuclear 
war, we continue to maintain our carrier forces, 
our many service units abroad, our always ready 
Army strategic forces and Marine Corps divi- 
sions, and the civilian components. The continu- 
ing modernization of these forces is a costly but 
necessary j^rocess, and is scheduled to go forward 
at a rate which will steadily add to our strength. 

The deployment of a portion of these forces 
beyond our shores, on land and sea, is persuasive 
demonstration of our determination to stand 
shoulder-to-shoulder with our allies for collective 
security. Moreover, I have directed that steps be 
taken to program our military assistance to these 
allies on a longer I'ange basis. This is necessaiy 
for a sounder collective defense system. 

Next I refer to our program in space exploration, 
which is often mistakenly supposed to be an in- 
tegral part of defense research and development. 

We note that, first, America has made great 
contributions in the jiast 2 years to the world's 
fund of knowledge of astrophysics and space 
science. These discoveries are of present interest 
cliiefly to the scientific community; but they are 


Department of Stale Bulletin 

important foundation stones for more extensive 
exploration of outer space for (lie iildnialf hiMipfit 
of all mankind. 

Second, our military missile pro{,naiii, ^'oinjr 
forward so successfully, docs not suller from our 
present lack of very large rocket engines, which 
are so nec^ssaiy in distant space exploration. I 
am assured by experts that the thrust of our pres- 
ent missiles is fully adequate for defense require- 

Third, the United States is pressing forward 
in the development of large rocket engines to 
place vehicles of many tons into space for ex- 
ploration purposes. 

Fourth, in the pieantime, it is necessary to re- 
member that we have only begun to probe the 
environment immediately surrounding the earth. 
Using launch systems presently available, we are 
developing satellites to scout the world's weather; 
satellite relay stations to facilitate and extend 
communications over the globe; for navigation 
aids to give accurate bearings to ships and air- 
craft; and for perfecting instruments to collect 
and transmit the data we seek. This is the area 
holding the most promise for early and useful 
applications of space technology. 

Fifth, we have just completed a year's experi- 
ence with our new space law. I believe it deficient 
in certain particidars and suggested improve- 
ments will be submitted to the Congress shortly. 
The accomplishment of the many tasks I have 
alluded to requires the continuous strengtliening 
of the spiritual, intellectual, and economic sinews 
of American life. The steady purpose of our so- 
ciety is to assure justice, before God, for every 
individual. We must be ever alert that freedom 
does not wither through the careless amassing of 
restrictive controls or the lack of courage to deal 
boldly with the giant issues of the day. 

A year ago, when I met with you, the Nation 
was emerging from an economic downturn, even 
though the signs of resurgent prosperity were not 
then sufficiently convincing to the doubtful. To- 
day our surging strength is apparent to everyone; 
1960 promises to be the most prosperous year in 
our history. 

Yet we continue to be afflicted by nacgino- 

Among cun-ent problems that require solution 
participated in by citizens as well as Government 
are — 

January 25, I960 

The need to protect the public interest in situa- 
ti()Ms of prolonged lalwr-management stalemate; 

The persistent refusal to come to grips with a 
critical problem in one sector of American 

The continuing threat of inflation, together 
witli the persisting tendency toward fiscal 

In certain instances the denial to some of our 
citizens of equal [)rotection of the law. 

Every American was disturbed bv tlie pro- 
longed disimte in the steel industry and the pro- 
tracted delay in reaching a settlement. 

We are all relieved that a settlement has at last 
been achieved in that industry. Percentagewise, 
by this settlement the increase to the steel com- 
panies in employment costs is lower than in any 
prior wage settlement since World War II. It fs 
also gratifying to note that despite the increase 
in wages and benefits several of the major steel 
producers have announced that there will be no 
increase in steel prices at this time. The national 
interest demands that in the period of industrial 
peace which has been assured by the new contract, 
both management and labor make every possible 
effort to increase efficiency and productivity in 
the manufacture of steel so that price increases 
can be avoided. 

One of the lessons of this story is that tJie po- 
tential danger to the entire Nation of longer and 
greater strikes must be met. To insure against 
such possibilities we must of course depend pri- 
marily upon the good commonsense of the re- 
sponsible individuals. It is my intention to 
encourage regular discussions between manage- 
ment and labor outside the bargaining table, to 
consider the interest of the public as well as their 
mutual interest in the maintenance of industrial 
peace, price stability, incentive for continuous in- 
vestment, and economic growth. Both the Exec- 
utive and the Congress will, I know, be watching 
developments with keenest interest. 

To me, it seems almost absurd that the United 
States should recognize the need, and so earnestly 
to .seek, for cooperation among the nations unless 
wo can achieve voluntary, dependable, abiding co- 
operation among the important segments of our 
own free society. Without such cooperation we 
cannot prosper. 

Failure to face up to basic issues in areas other 
tlian those of labor-management can cause serious 


strains on the firm freedom snjj ports of our 

Agriculture is one of these areas. 

Our basic fann laws were written 27 years ago, 
ill an emergency effort to redress hardsliip caused 
by a worldwide depression. They were con- 
tinued — and their economic distortions intensi- 
fied — during World War II in order to provide 
incentives for production of food needed to sus- 
tain a war-torn world. 

Today our farm problem is totally different. 
It is that of effectively adjusting to the changes 
caused by a scientific revolution. When the orig- 
inal fami laws were written, an hour's farm labor 
produced only one-fourth as much wheat as at 
present. Farm legislation is woefully out of 
date, ineffective, and expensive. 

For years we have gone on with an outmoded 
system which not only has failed to protect farm 
income, but also has produced soaring, threaten- 
ing surpluses. Our farms have been left ijroduc- 
ing for war while America has long been at peace. 

Once again I urge Congress to enact legislation 
that will gear production more closely to markets, 
make costly surpluses more manageable, provide 
greater freedom in farm operations, and steadily 
axjhieve increased net farm incomes. 

Another issue that we must meet squarely is 
that of living within our means. This requires 
restraint in expenditure, constant reassessment of 
priorities, and the maintenance of stable prices. 

To do so we must prevent inflation. Here is 
an opponent of so many guises that it is sometimes 
difficult to recognize. But our clear need is to 
stop continuous and general price rises — a need 
that all of us can see and feel. 

To prevent steadily rising costs and prices calls 
for stern self -discipline by every citizen. No 
person, city. State, or organized group can afford 
to evade the obligation to resist inflation, for 
every single American pays its criiDpling tax. 

Inflation's ravages do not end at the water's 
edge. Increases in prices of the goods we sell 
abroad threaten to drive us out of markets that 
once were securely ours. Whetlier domestic 
prices, so high as to be noncompetitive, result 
from demands for too-high profit margins or 
from increased labor costs that outrun growth in 
productivity, tlio final result is seriously damag- 
ing to the Nation. 

We must light inflation as wo would a fire that 

imperils our home. Only bj' so doing can we pre- 
vent it from destroying our salaries, savings, pen- 
sions, and insurance, and fi'om gnawing away the 
very roots of a free, healthy economy and the 
Nation's security. 

One major method by which the Federal Gov- 
ernment can counter inflation and rising prices is 
to insure that its expenditures are below its 
revenues. The debt with which Me are now con- 
fronted is about $290 billion. With interest 
charges alone now costing taxpayers about $9% 
billion, it is clear that this debt growth must 
stop. You will be glad to laiow that despite the 
unsettling influences of the recent steel strike, we 
estimate that our ac<'ounts will show, on June 30, 
this year, a favorable balance of approxhnately 
$200 million. 

I shall present to the Congress for 1961 a bal- 
anced budget. In the area, of defense, expendi- 
tures continue at the record peacetime levels of 
the last several years. With a single exception, 
expenditures in eveiy major category of health, 
education, and welfare will be equal or greater 
than last year. In space expenditures the 
amounts are practically doubled. But the over- 
all guiding goal of this budget is national need — 
not response to specific group, local or political 

Expenditure increases, other than those I have 
indicated, are largely accounted for by the in- 
creased cost of legislation previously enacted. I 
repeat, this budget will l)e a balancetl one. Ex- 
penditures will be $79,800 million. The amount 
of income over outgo described in the budget as 
a surplus to be applied against our national debt 
is $4,200 million. 

Personally, I do not feel that any amount can 
be properly called a surplus as long as the Nation 
is in debt ; I prefer to think of such an item 
as a reduction of our children's inherited mort- 
gage. And once we have established such pay- 
ments as normal practices we can profitably make 
improvements in our tax structure and thereby 
truly reduce the hca^'j' burdens of taxation. In 
any event this one reduction will save taxpayers 
each year ai:)proximately $200 million in interest 

This favorable balance will help case pressures 
ill our credit and cajiital markets. It will en- 
hance the confidence of people all over the world 
in the strength of our economy and our currency 


Department of State Bulletin 

and in our individual and collective ability to be 
fiscally ix'sponsible. 

In the manajieinent of tlie luige public debt the 
Treasury is unfortunately not free of artificial 
barriei"s. Its ability to deal with the tlifficult 
problems in tiiis field has l>een weakened "greatly 
by the unwillingness of the Congress to remove 
archaic i-estrictions. The need for a freer Iiand 
in debt, management is even more urgent today 
because the costs of the undesirable financing 
practices which the Ti-easury has been forced into 
are mounting. Komoval of this roadblock has 
high priority in my legishitive reconunendations. 

Still another issue relates to civil rights 

In all our hopes and plans for a better world 
we all recognize that provincial and racial preju- 
dices must be combatted. In I lie long perspective 
of history, the right to vote has been one of the 
strongest pillare of a free society. Our firet 
duty is to protect this right against all encroacli- 
ment. In spite of constitutional guarantees, and 
notwithstanding much progress of recent years, 
bias still deprives some persons in this counti-y 
of equal protection of the laws. 

Early in your last session I recommended legis- 
lation which would help eliminate several prac- 
tices discriminating against the basic rights of 
Americans. The Civil Rights Commission has 
developed additional constructive recommenda- 
tions. I hope that these will be among the mat- 
ters to be seriously considered in the current 
session. I trust that Congress will thus signal to 
the world that our Government is striving for 
equality under law for all our people. 

Each year and in many ways our Nation con- 
tinues to undergo profound change and growth. 

In the past 18 months we have iiailed the entry 
of two more States of the Union — Alaska and 
Hawaii. We salute these two western stai"s. 

Our vigorous expansion, which we all welcome 
as a sign of health and vitality, is many-sided. 
We are, for example, witnessing explosive growth 
in metropolitan areas. 

By 1975 the metropolitan areas of the United 
States will occupy twice the territory they do 
today. The roster of urban problems with which 
they must cope is staggering. They involve water 
supply, cleaning the air, adjusting local tax sys- 
tems, providing for essential educational, cultural, 
and social services, and destroying those condi- 
tions which breed delinquency and crime. 

In meeting tliese, we must, if wo value our 
iiistoric freedoms, keep williin the tratlitional 
framework of our Federal system with powers 
divided between tiie National and State CJovern- 
ments. Tiie uniqueness of this system may con- 
found the casual observer, l)u( it has worked efTec- 
lively for ne^irly l'OO yeai-s. 

I do not doubt that our urban and other i>or- 
plexing problems can be solved in the traditional 
American method. In doing so we must realize 
that nothing is really solved, indeed ruinous tend- 
encies are set in motion by yielding to tlie decep- 
tive bait of the "easy" Federal tax dollar. 

Our educational system provides a ready 
example. All recognize the vital necessity of 
having modern school plants, well-qualified and 
adequately compensated teachers, and of using the 
best possible teaching techniques and curriculums. 

We cannot be complacent about educating our 
youth. But the route to better trained minds is 
not through the swift administration of a Federal 
hypodermic or sustained financial transfusion. 
The educational process, essentially a local and 
personal responsibility, cannot be made to leap 
ahead by crash, centralized governmental action. 

The administration has proposed a carefully 
reasoned program for helping eliminate current 
deficiencies. It is designed to stimulate classroom 
construction, not by substitution of Federal dol- 
lars for State and local funds, but by incentives to 
extend and encourage State and local efforts. 
This approach rejects the notion of Federal domi- 
nation or control. It is workable, and should 
appeal to every American interested in advance- 
ment of our educational system in the traditional 
American way. I urge the Congi-ess to take 
action upon it. 

There is one other subject concerning which I 
renew a i-ecommendation I made in my state of 
the Union message last January.' I then advised 
the Congress of m}' purpose to intensify our 
efforts to replace force with a rule of law among 
nations. From many discussions abroad, I am 
convinced that purpose is widely and deeply 
shared by other peoples and nations of the world. 

In the same message I stated that our efforts 
would include a reexamination of our own relation 
to the International Court of Justice. The Court 
was established by the United Nations to decide 

' Ibid., Jan. 26. 1959, p. 115. 

January 25, I960 


international legal disputes between nations. In 
1946 we accepted the Court's jurisdiction, but sub- 
ject to a reservation of the right to determine 
unilaterally whether a matter lies essentially 
within domestic jurisdiction. There is pending 
before the Senate a resolution which would repeal 
our present self-judging reservation.^ I support 
that resolution and urge its prompt passage. If 
this is done, I intend to urge similar acceptance of 
the Court's jurisdiction by every member of the 
United Nations. 

Here perhaps it is not amiss for me to say a per- 
sonal word to the Members of the Congress, in tliis 
my final year of office, a word about the institu- 
tions we respectively represent and the meaning 
which the relationships between our two branches 
has for the days ahead. 

I am not unique as a President in having 
worked with a Congress controlled by the opposi- 
tion party — except that no other President ever 
did it for quite so long. Yet in both personal and 
official relationships we have weathered the stomis 
of the past 5 yeai-s. For this I am deeply 

My deep concern in the next 12 months, before 
my successor takes office, is with our joint con- 
gressional-executive duty to our own and to other 
nations. Acting upon the beliefs I have expressed 
here today, I shall devote my full energies to the 
tasks at hand, whether these involve travel for 
promoting greater world understanding, negotia- 
tions to reduce international discord, or constant 
discussions and communications with the Con- 
gress and the American people on issues both 
domestic and foreign. 

In pursuit of these objectives, I look forward 
to, and shall dedicate myself to, a close and con- 
structive association with the Congress. 

Every minute spent in irrelevant interbranch 
wrangling is precious time taken from the intelli- 
gent iniliatioii and adoption of coherent policies 
for our national survival and progress. 

"We seek a common goal — brighter opportunity 
for our own citizens and a world peace with 
justice for all. 

Before us and our friends is the challenge of 
an ideology which, for more than four decades, 
has trumpeted abroad its purpose of gaining ulti- 
mate victory over all forms of government at 
variance with its own. 

I'lir liMckgrouiul, see p. 128. 

We realize that however much we repudiate 
the tenets of imperialistic commimism, it repre- 
sents a gigantic enterprise. Its leadere compel its 
subjects to subordinate their freedom of action 
and spirit and personal desires for some hoped- 
for advantage in the future. 

The Communists can present an array of ma- 
terial accomplisliments over the past 15 years that 
lends a false persuasiveness to many of their glit- 
tering promises to the micommitted peoples. 

The competition they provide is formidable. 
We so recognize it. 

But in our scale of values we place freedom 
first. Our whole national existence and develop- 
ment have been geared to that basic concept and 
is responsible for the position of free-world lead- 
ei-ship to which we have succeeded. It is the 
highest prize that any nation can possess ; it is one 
that communism can never offer. And America's 
record of material accomplislunent in freedom is 
written not only in the unparalleled prosperity of 
our own Nation, but in the many billions we have 
devoted to the reconstruction of free-world econ- 
omies wrecked by World War II and in the effec- 
tive help of many more billions we have given in 
saving the independence of many others threat- 
ened by outside domination. Assui-edlj' we have 
the capacity for handling the problems in the 
new era of the world's history we are now 

But we must use that capacity intelligently and 
tirelessly, regardless of personal sacrifice. 

The fissure that divides our political planet is 
deep and wide. 

We live, moreover, in a storm of semantic dis- 
order in which old labels no longer faithfully 

Police states are called "people's democracies." 

Armed conquest of free people is called "libera- 

Such slippery slogans make difficult the prob- 
lem of communicating true faith, facts, and be- 

We nuist make clear our jieaceful intentions, 
our aspirations for a better world. To do so, we 
nmst use language to enligliten the mind, not as 
tlie instrument of tlie studied imiuendo and dis- 
torter of truth. 

And we must live by what we say. 

On my recent visit to distant lands I found 
one statesman aft-er another eager to tell me of 


Department of State Bulletin 

tlie elements of their government tJiat had been 
borrowed from our American Constitution, and 
from tlie indestructible ideals set forth in our 
Declaration of Indejiendence. 

As a nation we take pride tliat our own consti- 
tutional system, and the ideals which sustain it 
have been long viewed as a fountainhead of 

B}' our every word and action we must strive 
to make ourselves worthy of this trust, ever mind- 
ful tiiat an accumulation of seemingly minor 
encroaclmients upon freedom gradually could 
break down the entire fabric of a free society. 

So persuaded, we shall get on with the task 
before us. 

So dedicated, and with faith in tlie Almighty, 
humanity shall one day achieve the unity in free- 
dom to whicli all men have aspired from the dawn 
of time.

President Eisenhower To Visit 
Soutli America 

White Nome Statement 

White House press release dated January 6 

The President, accompanied by j\Irs. Eisen-

Argentina, February 26-29; Chile, February 29- 
March 2: and Uruguay, March 2-3; with brief 
stops in Puerto Eico. 

The President, in visiting the four southern-

partially fulfilling his long-held desire personally 
to travel in South America, to meet the people, 
and to renew friendships with the leaders of the 
nations so closely allied with the United States 
in the Organization of American States. The 
President hopes that his visit will serve two 
purposes : 

Publicly reflect his deep interest in all the coun- 
tries of the Xew World, and 

Encourage further development of the inter- 
American system, not only as a means of meeting 
the aspirations of the peoples of tiie Americas 
but also as a further example of the way all 
peoples may live in peaceful cooperation.

On the eve of the New Year we send to you, Mr. Presi-

sincere greetings and best wishes from the peoples of the 
Soviet Union and from ourselves personally. It is pos- 
sible to note with deep satisfaction that in the past year 
there were undertaken joint efforts in the search of ways 
for closer relations of our States, for ensurance of such 
a situation in which the unresolved international ques- 
tions would be decided by peaceful means onl.v. Entering 
the New Year, we would like to hojie sincerely that these 
joint efforts will guarantee a new triumph of reason, and 
that a start will be made to solve the most important 
problem of our times — the general and complete disarma- 
ment and the liberation of mankind from the burden of 

Let this Xew Year be the year of a further improve- 
ment in the relations between our countries. The realiza- 
tion of this hope which is so dear to the hearts of both 
the Soviet and American peoples would undoubtedly bring 
nearer the time when, thanks to the efforts of both coun- 
tries, the relations between fheni conld be built on the 
foundation of enduring friendship and mutually advan- 
tageous cooperation for the good of our nations, for the

good of peace in the entire world. It is exactly in this 
way that we evaluate the meaning of exchange visits by 
the leading statesmen of both countries. These meetings 
make it possible to ensure that historical turning point 
in the relations between our countrie.s, as well as in the 
international situation as a whole, which leads to the 
deliverance of all people from the dread of a new war. 
With best wishes for happiness and health to you per-

Canadian-United States Cooperation for Peace 

hy Richard B. Wiggle^worth 
Ambassador to Canada ^ 

II me fait un grand plaisir d^etre ici aujourd^hui^ 
et je vous remercie de voire aiTnahle invitation. 
Je suis tres heureux d''etre a Montreal et d^avoir 
le privilege de rencontrer les memhres de votre 
Club et leurs amis. 

J^ai eu Voccasion pendant les dei'niers m,ois de 
voyager quelques 2ofi00 milles en tcrre canadienne 
d'un ocean a V autre, de reticent rer un grand nom- 
bre de vos concitoyens et de me familiariser avec 
V08 traditions, vos aspirations, et vos convictions. 

T^Hiat I have learned from my travels in Canada 
has impelled me inevitably to reflect on the close- 
ness between Canadian aims and the aims of my 
own country. 

Our relationship prompts me to discuss today 
some aspects of Canadian-United States coopera- 
tion for peace. I do so because the nature of this 
cooperation is, I think, often obscured. It is ob- 
scured on the one hand by platitudes and on the 
other by the very complexities of security in the 
modern world. The result is a lack of apprecia- 
t ion of its unique character and the circumstances 
tiiat brought it about. 

Were I an historian I probably would start 
with the Rush-Bagot agreement of 1818, which 
freed our Great Lakes of warships. And I would 
give considerable attention to World War I and 
the contribution our two countries made to turn- 
ing back that onslaught against our security. 

I shall limit myself, however, to the last quar- 
ter of a century. I shall do so because it seems 
to me that our joint response to the dangei-s of 
these years has been different both in ilegree and 
in kind from the alliances and pacts that we find 

' Address made before the Montreal Canadian Club, 
.Montreal, Canada, on Dec. 14. 

as a general rule in the history of international 

The old saying that "the enemy of my enemy is 
my friend"' is of course totally inadequate to de- 
scribe the depth and strength that characterize our 
cooperation. I am not concerned with the super- 
ficial similarities or difTerences that one may find 
between us and between our countries. I speak of 
something more profoimd. I would like to outline 
the cooperation between our countries during the 
past 25 years and to emphasize its significance to 
the security of the free world. 

Response to Fascism 

Fascism, the first of the two great challenges of 
the past 25 years, took the form of military 

Though the Fascists used the tools of propa- 
ganda and the "big lie" with a thoroughness never 
before witnessed, our danger was a familiar one. 
We were faced, for the most part, with a classic 
war of men, maneuver, and materiel. No matter 
how hard or how costly the effort required of us, 
we understood immediately the kind of response 
the threat dictated. Only by war could fascism 
take our freedom. 

We shared an enemy, and we shared a continent. 
That akme was enough to insure unit}- of action. 
We also shared the raw materials and the indus- 
trial capacity with which to build the comple.x 
machinery of modem war. And we sensed that 
if we did not put these resources together to a 
degree never before known in international af- 
fairs, our efForts might be not only inefficient but 
not enough. 

Our joint action was possible only because we 

January 25, J 960 


had shared many years of mutual respect and good 
faith as -well. Anyone who looked for pillboxes 
along our common border would have known that. 

The conviction that North America is more than 
a geographic concept did not grow overnight. 
Throughout the thirties, as foreign places many 
of our people had never heard of — MaJichuria, 
Ethiopia, the Sudetenland, Danzig — took over tlie 
front pages of our newspapers, the idea slowly 
and spontaneously spread. 

I think particularly of President Roosevelt's 
address at Chautauqua, New York, on August 14, 

Our closest neighbors are good neighbors. If there are 
remoter nations that wish us not good but ill, they know 
that we are strong ; they Isnow that we can and will de- 
fend ourselves and defend our neighborhood. 

Or the President's words at Kingston, Ontario, 
on August 18, 1938 : 

I give to you assurance that the people of the United 
States will not stand idly by if domination of Canadian 
soil is threatened by any other empire. 

I also think of an address by Prime Minister 
Mackenzie King at Woodbridge, Ontario, on 
August 20, 1938 : 

We too have our obligations as a good friendly neighbor, 
and one of these is to see that, at our own instance, our 
country is made as immune from attack or possible in- 
vasion as we can reasonably be expected to make it, and 
that, should the occasion ever arise, enemy forces should 
not be able to pursue their way either by land, sea or air, 
to the United States across Canadian territory. 

This growing awareness of our common danger 
and our common responsibilities led to our first 
great joint decision. I quote from the Ogdens- 
burg agreement of August 18, 1940 : ^ 

The Prime Minister and the President have discussed 
the mutual problems of defense in relation to the safety 
of Canada and the United States. 

It has been agreed th^it a Permanent Joint Board on 
1 >cf ense sliall be set up at once by the two countries. 

Tliis Permanent .Joint Board on Defense shall commence 
immediate studies relating to sea, land, and air problems 
including personnel and materiel. 

It will consider in the broad sense the defense of the 
north half of the Western Hemisphere. 

This Permanent Joint Board was from the be- 
ginning an uiiqiuililied success. As you know, it 
still contributes greatly to the cooperation between 

our two countries in respect to the defense of the 
North American Continent. 

The second great step in this period of our com- 
mon efforts, the Hyde Park declaration of April 
20, 1941," was in a sense even more far reaching 
than the decision at Ogdensburg. I quote from it 
liere because it illustrates the degree of cooperation 
whicli we were to attain : 

Among other important matters, the President and the 
Prime Minister discussed measures by which the most 
prompt and effective utilization might be made of the 
productive facilities of North America for the purposes 
both of local and hemisphere defense and of the assistance 
which in addition to their own programs both Canada and 
the United States are rendering to Great Britain and the 
other democracies. 

It was agreed as a general principle that in mobilizing 
the resources of this continent each country should pro- 
vide the other with the defense articles which it is best 
able to produce, and, above all, produce quickly, and that 
production programs should be coordinated to this end. 

It would serve no useful purpose to discuss 
"World War II in any detail today. Many of you 
were in that war and remember well the first des- 
perate years, then the great sweeps of the Allied 
armies, the ever-increasing flow of men and mate- 
riel, the billions in aid to our Allies from our two 
countries, and the victories that followed. 

It is possible that some of you were among those 
Canadians who received parachute training at 
Fort Benning, Georgia. Or perhaps you were in 
Manitoba teaching United States soldiers the 
techniques of fighting in cold weather. Perhaps 
you flew fighter cover for our Flying Fortresses, or 
it may be that as you moved north in Italy you had 
close air support from United States airmen. 

And I would remind you that when Pearl Har- 
bor was attacked there were more than 16,000 
United States citizens in Canadian uniform. And, 
strange as it may seem, by the time the United 
States had declared war on Japan, Canada liad 
already done so. 

Tlie Ogdensburg agreement acknowledged our 
responsibilities to each other. As we disbanded 
our armies after the war and reconverted our fac- 
tories to peacetime production we recognized new 
responsibilities. Our world grew smaller; our 
obligations grew greater. Our vigorous adher- 
ence to the charter of the United Nations is proof 
of our acceptance of these new responsibilities and 
of our allegiance to free men everywhere.

Military Response to Communist Imperialism 

The second j::reat ilanjrer of our time — interna- 
tional communism — became a reality in the years 
after the war. One aspect only of tliis new threat 
to the free Morld was militai-y, but that aspect had 
to be faced lirst. We could not build for a world 
of free men without insuring that men would be 

Our two Governments decided that it would be 
unwise to destroy the coordination we had so care- 
fully built, but they recognized that this coordina- 
tion had a wider frame of reference. I quote from 
a joint statement of February 12, IQiT,-* released 
simultaneously in Ottawa and Washington : 

In the interest of efficienc.v and economy, each Govern- 
ment has decided that its national defense estal)lishment 
shall, to the extent authorized by law, continue to collab- 
orate for peacetime joint security purposes. . . . 

It has been the task of the Governments to assure that 
the close security relationship between Canada and the 
United States in North America will in no way impair but 
on the contrary will strengthen the cooperation of each 
country within the broader framework of the United Na- 

I do not recall that this statement received very 
much attention at the time. After all, the dead- 
liast war in history was barely over. The world 
had surely learned, at least for a time, the disas- 
trous consequences of aggression. 

But it was an uneasy time. For example, why 
would an ally, presumably grateful for Canadian 
assistance, operate a spy ring in Canada ? Was the 
Communist coup in Czechoslovakia really a domes- 
tic issue of no consequence to the rest of the world? 
Were the outlaws who sought to overrun the main- 
land of China really only peaceful agrarian 
reformers ? 

Then came the Berlin blockade. 

Even the most wishful thinkers were forced to 
concede that the free world was faced again with 
possible disaster. The new threat demanded a 
whole series of new responses. In the military 
sphere they followed one another in quick se- 

To counter the threat of armed aggression in 
Europe, tlie North Atlantic Treaty Organization 
was born. To counter the Communist invasion of 
south Korea a United Nations military force was 
formed for the first time in history, to protect a 
nation from aggression. 

It is unne^-essary to dwell upon the Korean war. 
Our wounils are too fresh and our memories too 
full. But when we remember the cost in blood 
and trea.suro of that action, wo must also remem- 
ber its purpose and the result. More than 9 years 
after the invasion began, the Kepublic of Korea 
is still free. 

Tlie war also reinforeed a lesson we had leanied 
the hard way. The troops which invaded Man- 
churia fought on to Nanking, Singapore, and the 
Aleutians. The troops that marched into the 
Rhineland marched on to Paris, Athens, and 
Stalingrad. But the Conmiunists who invaded 
south Korea have not fought their way to Aus- 
tralia or Japan, or to British Columbia or 

We stood together, and under the flag of the 
United Nations we fought together. We were de- 
termuied and united. 

Surely others, too, learned a lesson from Korea. 
It is not likely that our determination to defend 
the free world will again be taken lightly. 

But before this bitter war was over. North 
America itself faced the threat of aggression. The 
possibility of bombers from across the Arctic was 
no longer merely a classroom exercise in military 

Our joint response was the Pinetree Line, the 
Mid-Canada Line, the Distant Early Warning 
Line, and finally, on August 1, 1957, the announce- 
ment, already commimicated to NATO, that Can- 
ada and the United States plaiuied to operate their 
systems of air defense under an integrated joint 
command responsible to the Chiefs of Staff of both 

We now know this command as NORAD — the 
North American Air Defense Command — and I 
regret that it is impossible for all the citizens of 
both our countries to visit its headquarters at Col- 
orado Springs and its ever-ready fighting units 
across this continent and at sea. It is a splendid 
example of our cooperation at the service level. 

To speak of NORAD today is to speak of a 
force of over 200,000 men, not to mention their 
equipment and augmentation forces. It is a com- 
pliment to the quiet eiBciency of NORAD under 
the leadership of our General [Laurence S.] Kutor 
and your Air Marshal [Charles R.] Slemon that 
so many of us take it for granted.

Wliat ail- defense did we have 10 years ago? 
One radar squadron and two giin battalions, ac- 
cording to General Kuter. A far cry from the 
radar, supersonic interceptors, the surface-to-air 
missiles, and the electronic computers that guard 
us today. 

We hope the effectiveness of NOKAD is never 
tested in battle. We shall never know to what 
degree its strength has already deterred the ambi- 
tions of those who might otherwise have been 
tempted to try to destroy us. 

But jet aircraft and the BOMAKC are no match 
for intercoiitinental ballistic missiles. Nor are 
they supposed to be. Will NORAD, then, as some 
say, soon outlive its usefulness ? 

I am not a military expert ; so I will let an ex- 
pert speak for me. General Kuter addressed the 
NATO Parliamentarians Conference in W^ashing- 
ton a few weeks ago. I quote : 

Let me say here that we believe that the manned 
bomber will be a serious threat for a long time to come. 

We are told that the missile will ultimately become the 
primary threat, but even so it will be a mixed threat, and 
the bomber will still be used against pinpoint or hardened 
targets, for mopup operations, or for a variety of situa- 
tions which demand human intelligence and judgment on 
the spot. 

We are also convinced that the subsonic attaclv — on the 
deck — at very low altitude — will remain a threat 

But when the day does come that interconti- 
nental missiles are the primary threat, will 
NORAD be helpless to deal with them? Wliat 
is being done to insure that we can defend our- 
selves and strike back? I quote once more from 
General Kuter's address : 

Another major area in which we are now working is 
that of defense against missiles. 

We are installing now in the far north a missile warn- 
ing system entitled the "Ballistic Missile Early Warning 
System"— short title, ISMIOWS. 

These are enormous fan-beam radars which will give us 
not only warnings l)Ut an approximate idea of a missile 
impact area. 

We are working vigorously in perfecting an antimissile 
missile. . . . And we have every confidence that free- 
world scientific and military capability is more than a 
match for anything communism may throw at us. 

That is why we believe tliat when the missile becomes 
an operational tlireat in significant numbers we will 
have a system to counteract it. Tlie stakes are too high 
to fail now. 

Speaking also at the same NATO Parliamen- 
tarians Conference Admiral [Jerauld] Wright, 

the NATO Atlantic coimnander,^ emphasized the 
vital importance of the military task which con- 
fronts us today as partners and allies. He 
stressed the fact that there are three basic defense 
tasks which must be accomplished by NATO : 

1. the defense of Europe ; 

2. the defense of North America ; 

3. the defense of the Atlantic. 

No one of these, he said, can be defended in 
isolation : 

Europe could not be defended without the retaliatory 
capability and the logistic and military reinforcement 
capacity of North America. 

The defense of North America would be made im- 
measurably more difficult if Europe should fall. 

And neither could be defended if we lost control of our 
trans-Atlantic lines of sea communication between the 

"Our basic and fundamental military task," he 
added, "is the prevention of war by our strength: 
strength to retaliate and strengtli to defend." 

Before I end my discussion of our responses to 
the military threat posed by international com- 
munism, I should like to say a few words about 
one of the means of our defense that weighs 
heavily on us all — nuclear weapons. I think 
it might be useful to begin with an examination 
of the circumstances that require our possession of 
these weapons. 

Shortly after their meeting in Paris in Decem- 
ber 1957, the NATO Heads of Government issued 
a communique, from which I quote: ' 

The Soviet leaders, wliile preventing a general disarma- 
ment agreement, have made it clear that the most modern 
and destructive weapons, including missiles of all kinds, 
are being introduced in the Soviet armed forces. In the 
Soviet view, all European nations except the U.S.S.R. 
should, without waiting for general disarmament, re- 
nounce nuclear weapons and missiles and rely on arms 
of the pre-atomic age. 

As long as the Soviet Union persists in this attitude, we 
have no alternative but to remain vigilant and to look to 
our defences. We are therefore resolved to achieve the 
most effective pattern of NATO military defensive 
strength, taking into account the most recent develop- 
ments in weapons and tochni(iucs. 

At that meeting the Heads of Government

agreed tliat the overwlielining numerical superior- 
ity of tlie Soviet armed forces— better than 80 
Russian divisions directly facing Western 
Europe— required tliat tlie NATO shiekl forces 
have a nuclear capability. 

Accordingly a series of agreements was con- 
cluded under the terms of which weapons capable 
of carrying nuclear warheads were made avail- 
able to certain NATO countries. The warheads, 
which would be used only to meet aggression, re- 
mained in the custody of the United States. 
When the North Atlantic Council announced the 
conclusion of these agreements on May 7, 1959," 
it specifically quoted from the North Atlantic 
Council's communique of May 3 two years before.' 
I quote: 

Pending an acceptable agreement on disarmament, no 
power can claim the right to deny to the Alliance the pos- 
session of the modern arms needed for its defence. If, 
however, the fears professed by the Soviet Union are 
sincere, they could be readily dissipated. All that is 
needed is for the Soviet Union to accept a general dis- 
armament agreement embodying effective measures of 
control and inspection within the framework of the pro- 
posals made on numerous occasi(ms by the Western Pow- 
ers, which remain an essential basis of their policy. 

The Communists have tried to convince us that 
should we disarm unilaterally there would be no 
tension between them and the free world. They 
are right: there would be no free world. 

It is clear, I think, no matter how profound our 
regret, that we must maintain a nuclear delerrent 
until a nuclear deterrent is no longer required. 
We have no choice. Thus, to give NATO's de- 
fense posture both breadth and flexibility, it was 
necessary to arm our shield forces with nudeai'- 
capable weapons. 

Nevertheless, in so arming our forces, it was also 
necessary to observe our obligation to reason and 
to humanity, to inhibit any increase in the number 
of holders of the warheads themselves. This obli- 
gation is embodied in an act of the United States 
Congress.'" I do not think any reasonable man 
underestimates the danger this law sought to 

How much greater the danger under which we 
live would become if 10 or 50 nations had nuclear 
weapons for as they chose. To have them

ready for defensive use and to insure that tlieir use 
will be for defense only presents a dilemma we can 
Ignore only at our peril. I submit (hat the solu- 
tion we have found for our dilenmia is a wise one. 
The free world has the necessary military strength 

Speaking in this connection about a year ago 
President Eisenhower stated," "As of today [we 
have the necessary power to] present to any poten- 
tial attacker who would unleash war upon the 
world the prospect of virtual annihilation of his 
country." And he added, "Every informed gov- 
ernment knows this. It is no secret." This mili- 
tary strength has preserved the peace of the world 
in recent years. 

It is of course our deepest wish that all nations 
may disarm, but disarmament is not a one-way 
•street. It is po.ssible only in the event of effective 
international inspection and control. Wliile there 
is a mailed fist anywhere, the free world must con- 
tinue to bear the necessary armor. If we have it, 
we may not need it. If we need it and do not have 
it, we shall never need it again. 

Economic Cooperation for Peace 

I have emphasized the vital importance of Ca- 
nadian-United States cooperation to the defense 
of the free world. I believe, however, I would 
leave an unbalanced picture if I did not at least 
briefly touch on a no less vital element in maintain- 
ing peace. That element is free-world economic 

Militaiy strength alone will not sichieve our 
objectives. Much more is i-equired to end the cold 
war and to build the international understanding 
and confidence essential to world peace. 

Millions of people in Asia and Africa are today 
struggling to throw ofi" the yoke of poverty and 
miseiy under which they have existed .so long. 
Some of thom are determined to attain a better 
standard of living, cost what it may — even, if nec- 
essary, at the expense of freedom. 

If freedom, security, and world peace are to be 
i-ealized, the reasonable aspirations of these people 
must be furthered. Tlie offensive must be main- 
tained against hunger,, and privation. 

The United States, Canada, and the free world 
took the initiative in this field long before the 
Conuniiiiists had ever thought of a foreign aid

program. AVe are fighting these ancient miseries 
which offer such fertile ground for communism's 
favorite technique of political subversion and eco- 
nomic penetration. 

Aid alone will not bring the victory over pov- 
erty and hunger. People must have within their 
own hands the means of self-support in dignity 
and freedom. This can be assured only if the 
world's trade is founded on principles which pro- 
mote expansion and provide opportunity. Canada 
and the United States have led the world toward 
these principles ever since the end of "World 
War II. 

The freedom preserved through defensive 
strength must not be lost to ignorance and hun- 
ger. Yes, we have guns for the defense of the free 
world, but we also have engineers, technicians, and 
surgeons, and food, and the certainty that all men 
wish to be free. And we are determined through 
understanding and cooperation to build lasting 
confidence and friendship which are so vital in 
this troubled world. 

The Future 

We have come a long way since the agreement 
at Ogdensburg. The world has changed and with 
it our responsibilities have changed — our responsi- 
bilities to ourselves and to all those who respect the 
charter of the United Nations. 

But some things have not changed. When I 
mentioned a few minutes ago some of the things 
we share, my list was incomplete. I left out per- 
haps the most important things of all: the belief 
that peace and freedom are possible for all men 
and the hope that the door to peace and freedom 
may bo opened as a result of our strength in 

My travels and observations during the past 
year have served to underline for me the great 
contribution which the cooperation between our 
two nations has made to the peace and security of 
the free world. They have also served to under- 
line the vital importance of our continued cooper- 
ation for peace in the period which lies ahead. 

May I add that what we have done for ourselves 
we have done for all free men. And what we have 

done for the security of the free world we have 

done for ourselves. 

There is si ill much to do. Perhaps there always 

will be. But I am sure we will do it together. If 

we do not, it will not be done at all. 


To paraphrase the words of your distinguished 
Prime Minister [John George Diefenbaker] at 
ceremonies in Prince Albert which I was privi- 
leged to attend : The price of peace is cooperation 
and the prize of cooperation is peace. 

IJC Reports on Development 
of Columbia River Basin 

Press release 885 dated December 30 

The Department of State annomiced on Decem- 
ber 30 that the International Joint Commission 
has submitted to the Govermnents of the United 
States and Canada its report on "principles for 
detei-mining and apportioning benefits from coop- 
erative use of storage of waters and electrical 
interconnection within the Colmnbia River sys- 
tem." The report was made public on December 
30 at Washington and Ottawa. 

In January 1959 the two Govermnents requested 
the Commission to make a special report on the 
determination and allocation of benefits which 
might result from the cooperative development of 
the Columbia River system with particular regard 
to electrical generation and flood control.^ 

In receiving the report the Department of State 
expressed appreciation for the constructive efforts 
of the members of the International Joint Com- 
mission and the fact that the Commission was able 
to reach agreement on its recommendations. The 
Acting Chairman of the U.S. Section is Eugene 
W. Weber, and the Chainnan of the Canadian 
Section is Gen. A.G.L. McNaughton. The other 
Canadian Commissionei-s are Donald L. Stephens 
of Winnipeg and Lucien Dansereau of Montreal. 
The other U.S. Commissioner is Francis Adams. 
The Department of State recalled the contribution 
which the late Gov. Doughis McKay made to the 
Commission's work as Chainnan of the U.S. 

The Commission's report is now under study by 
appropriate officials in tlie U.S. and Canadian 
Governments with a view to its usefulness as 
guidelines in negotiation of an agreement covering 
specific projects and cooperative arrangements 
in the Columbia River Basin. After consultation 
with the appropriate congressional committees 
the Department of State will consult further

U.S. and Mexican Officials Discuss 
Control of Illegal Drug Traffic 

Following is the text of a joint communique 
released at Washington on January 5 at the eon- 
elusion of a 2-day meeting of delegations from 
Mexico and the United States. 

Pres8 release 2 dated January 5 (revised) 

In view of the fact that illicit production, 
traffic and use of narcotic drugs constitutes a 
world problem as well as a problem wliich affects 
Mexico and the United States alike and upon the 
invitations of the United States, delegations of 
tlie Governments of the United States and Mexico 
met in Washington, D.C., on January 4 and 5, 
1960, to explore, informally, ways and means of 
intensifying the campaign against illicit traffic 
in narcotics in accordance with existing inter- 
national treaties and the domestic legislation of 
tlie two countries. It was agreed tliat this cam- 
paign oii'ei-s a most fruitful opportunity for 
int«mational cooperation as is explicit in interna- 
tional treaties on narcotics to whicli both coun- 
tries are parties and in their membei-ship in the

It was also agreed that, in the spirit of mutual 
understanding and respect which characterizes 
the friendly relations of the two countries, the 
two Governments would continue to make their 
best efforts to fuul appropriate measures to com- 
bat more effectively the traffic in illegal drugs, in 
addition to the implementation of provisions of 
international treaties on tlie subject tliat eacli 
Government is observmg to tlie best of its ability. 
In this connection the Chief of the American 
Delegation stated that his Government is pre- 
pared to offer its facilities in the training of per- 
sonnel and the use of scientific and technical 
equipment, if the Mexican Government should so 

On this basis each delegation stated their con- 
viction that their Governments would continue 
to encourage closer cooperation between Federal, 

State and municipal officials of tlie two comune.s 
who are engaged in the figlit against the nefar- 
ious activities of narcotic, criminals in tlie two 
countries. It was noted that tiie general public 
is fi-equently unaware of tiie operations of com- 
petent authorities in the narcotics (iold liecaiise 
of the necessarily confidential nature of enforce- 
ment methods. 

There was complete recognition that the drug 
traffic between the two countries involves tiie 
illicit production, distribution or transit of nar- 
cotic dnigs in Mexico and the illegal sale and use 
of or addiction to those drugs in tlie United 
States. In this connection the Chief of tiie Mexi- 
can Delegation called attention to the fact that 
since 1947 a national campaign has been carried 
out in Mexico with the cooperation of all levels 
of goverimient to combat the illicit cultivation, 
traffic or transportation of narcotic drugs. The 
Chief of the American Delegation commented 
that the United States has increased the number 
of customs and narcotics agents in the areas near 
the border and is prepared to enter into a coopera- 
tive training program for the enforcement 
agents of both countries. 

Tlie members of both Delegations stressed the 
need for continuous public eidightenment regard- 
ing the seriousness of the drug problem, especially 
in areas of widespread addiction, and the impor- 
tance of wholehearted support of the people in 
supporting such measures as have a reasonable 
likelihood of eliminating the violatoi-sof narcotics 
laws — the perpetrators of the most abominable 
crime against the health and welfare of our

President Expresses Views 

on WorSd Court and Disarmament 

Following is an exchange of letters between 
Pi'esulent Eisenhotuer and Senator Hubert U. 
Humphrey which was made public by Senator 
Humphrey on November 27. 


Augusta, Georgia 

November 17, 1959 

Dear Senator Humphrey : I write now in 
further reply to your letter of October 21, 1959. 

One of the great purposes of this Administra- 
tion has been to advance the rule of law in the 
woi'ld, through actions directly by the United 
States Government and in concert with the gov- 
ernments of other countries. It is open to us to 
further this great purpose both through optimum 
use of existing international institutions and 
through the adoption of clianges and improve- 
ments in those institutions. 

Timely consideration by the United Nations 
of threatening situations, in Egypt in 195G, in 
I^ebanon in 1958, and in Laos in 1959, has made 
an important contribution to the preservation of 


international peace and security. The continued 
development of mutual defense and security ar- 
rangements among the United States and a large 
nmnber of fre«-world countries lias i^rovided a 
powerful deterrent against international law- 
breaking. One cannot, however, be satisfied with 
the way events liave developed in some areas — 
for example, Hungary, and Tibet. The interna- 
tional community needs to find more effective 
means to cope with and to prevent such brutal 
uses of force. 

One of the principal efforts of the United 
States in the last lialf dozen years has been to 
devise effective means for controlling and re- 
ducing armaments. Success in this quest will 
bring greater security to all countries and lift 
the threat of devastating nuclear conflict. In 
order to make progress toward the goal of com- 
plete and general disarmament expressed in the 
United Nations resolution ^ recently sponsored by 
the United States and the other members of the 
General Assembly, this Government has followed 
the policy of seeking reliable international agi-ce- 
ments on manageable segments of the whole arms 
problem. I am hopeful that the current Geneva 
negotiations on discontinuance of nuclear weap- 
ons tests will produce agreement." A resulting 
treaty would, of course, be submitted to the 

Next 3'ear tlie United States will be partici- 
pating in further disarmament efforts to be under- 
taken by a group of ten nations which will, as 
appropriate, report on its progress to the United 
Nations Disannament Commission and General 
Assembly.^ The best and most carefuU}' elabo- 
rated disarmament agreements are likely to carry 
witli them some risks, at least theoretically, of 
evasion. But one must ponder, in reaching deci- 
sions on the very complex and difficult subject of 
arms control, the enormous risks entailed if rea- 
sonable steps are not taken to curb tlie inter- 
natioinil competition in armaments and to move 
effectively in the direction of disarmament.

the problem of our relation.ship to the International Court

Attorney General have delivered important addresses 
citing your concern with this problem. 

Along with many other members of Congress in both 
parties, I was delighted to note this emphasis on a pro- 
gram of strengthening the Court. An American initiative

Senate Kesolution W supports your position in this 
matter. Tlie State Department has advised the Foreign

Kesolution. There is considerable support among mem- 
bers of the Foreign Relations Committee for this step 
toward greater participation in the Court, but there is a 
general feeling, which I share, that since vou have 
indicated a desire to speak further on this subject, final 
action should he held in abeyance rK>nding your message 
I regret very much that the first session of the present 
Congress has adjourned without receiving your message 
on this important subject. 

I respectfully urge you to give this further considera- 
tion I hope that you will, either in your ne.xt State 
of the Union message or in a special communication 
advise us of the broad policies which guide the United 
States Government in its efforts to establish a rule of 
law in the world, and also describe the specific measures 
which Congress .should pass to aid in accomplishing this 
general purpose. Since Senate Resolution 94 is now 
widely understood and has been fully discussed in the 
press, and since the withdrawal of the self-judgement 
a.spect of the domestic jurisdiction reservation is an 
obvious first step, I hope your mes.sage will contain a 
plea for the early passage of Senate Resolution 94. 

The enunciation of general principles of long range 
foreign policy are most useful. The public acceptance of 
these broad principles will be bolstered by concrete pro- 
posals. It is with this in mind that I have Introduced 
Senate Resolution 94, which Is admittedly only a very 
small step toward the greater common goal which we 
share. With your support I am confident that the Senate 
will accept this measure, and we will then be able to look 
toward the further establishment of what our late Sec- 
retary of State, John Foster Dulles, called "institutions of

Enclosures : Report entitled "A Plan for the Establishment In 
Hawaii of a Center for Cultural and Technical Interchange Be- 
tween East and West", dated December 30, 1959. 

The Vice President 
United States Senate. 


An International Center, as proposed, concen- 
trating on Asian and Pacific affairs and estab- 
lished in connection with the University of 
Hawaii could make a valuable contribution to the 
programs of the United States for the promotion 
of international educational, cultural, and related 

1. In keeping with the views of the Hawaiian 
Community Advisoi-y Coimnittee, it should con- 
sist of two principal units, to be maintained, 
staffed, and operated by the Univereity. Tltese 
imits would consist of (1) an International Col- 
lege offering academic progi-ams and related 
sei-vices and (2) an International Training Cen- 
ter providing facilities for on-the-job, in-sei'vice, 
or field training. The principal officers of the 
Center would be the Director, the Dean of the 
International College, and the Director of the 
Traming Center. The Director of the Interna- 
tional Center would report directly to the Presi- 
dent of the University. 

2. To initiate a program for such a Center 
would require the provision as soon as possible 
of adequate housing and related facilities; its 
expansion would have to be commensurate with 
the growth of such facilities. 

3. During the first three yeare, scholarships for 
students from Asian and Pacific areas as well as 
for tliose of the United States should be pro- 
vided, and also grants for outstanding scholars, 
scientists, and other specialists and men of leader- 
ship in order to strengthen the program of the 
Center and demonstrate its potentialities. 

4. The facilities, services, and resources of the 
Center should be made available at reasonable 
cost to all ([ualilied students, scholai-s, agencies, 
and institutions interested in participating in its 

Department of State Bulletin 

5. Appropriate advisoiy coniniittees should be 
establislied to assure adequate liaison and policy 
and ])ro<rrani jjuidance fn)ni tlio viewpoint of 
tlie participating or sponsoring agencies and 

6. To earn- out such a Plan would require spe- 
cial financial support, tliat is, supjiort. from 
sources other than and in addition to the Govern- 
ment and XTniversity of Hawaii. 

7. Such spwial iinancial support, it is esti- 
mated, would amotuit to $8,300,000. This would 
be distributed as follows: («) a contribution to 
initial building costs; and during the first three 
years: (b) contributions toward operational 
expenses, (c) scholai-ships for 225 Asian and 
Pacific students and 75 American students, (d) 
grants to outstanding Asian, Pacific, and Ameri- 
can scholars and other leaders, and (e) advisory 
sernces. (For detailed figures, see Appendix 7.) ' 

8. Regarding the possibility of special fuiancial 
support from the Federal Government, no spe- 
cific provision has been made for these needs in 
the budget for 1961. Tlie Plan for the Center 
as it materializes can be called to the attention 
of agencies of the Government planning programs 
which might make use of available facilities. 
Some support for the Center might be possible 
also to the extent that it could be derived from 
grants available imder progi-ams authorized by 
general legislation. Thus, the University might 
further explore the possibilities of obtaining 
assistance for the necessai-y building under the 
loan program of the Housing and Home Finance 
Agency or under programs of assistance to educa- 
tional institutions, like those currently proposed 
in H.R. 4267 or S. 1017, 86th Congress, First 
Session, 1959. For scholarships, fellowships, and 
other similar payments to or for students and 
other individuals, gi'ants could be sovtglit mider 
the regular progi-ams for whicli the Congress 
appropriates funds as authorized by the U.S. 
Information and Educational Exchange Act of 
19-18, as amended ; Title III of Chapter II of the 
Mutual Security Act of 1954; the National 
Defense Education Act; and other Acts cited spe- 
cifically or in general terms in the legislation 
which has authorized this Report. 


The Task of Peaceful Cooperation 

Remarks by George N. iShuster ' 

Mr. Chairman, having listened with great in- 
terest to the resolution ^ presented by the distin- 
guished delegate from the Soviet Union fN. M. 
Sissakian] and also to lus remarks, I feel it 
incumbent upon me to make a statement somewhat 
more lengthy than would otherwise be the case. ' I 
should like to begin by recalling UNESCO's first 
meeting in this city, when a truly great man, whose 
life has been given to the cause of peace and upon 
whose body then lay a weariness bom of duress 
in concentration camps, rose to express the hopes 
which were in all our hearts at that time, namely, 
that our joint victory would usher in freedom and 
a decent measure of human understanding. That 
man was Leon Blum, and I should like to dedicate 
to the memory of this son of France what I shall 
now say. My comment will be, of necessity, in a 
measure a response to my colleague of the Soviet 
Union but will also be, I fondly ti-ust, something 
more than that. 

Certainly no men desired more ardently peace- 
ful and fruitful relations with the people of Rus- 
sia than did Americans of my generation. "We 
had been reared and we lived in the spirit of 
Tolstoy and Dostoevski, the two greatest masters 
of the human mind of their age and still among 
the oracles of our own. They seem to me far 
more important than sputniks and fleets of jet 
planes. How could anyone doubt that a people 
from which such men arose is a miglity i)eoiile fed 
by the springs of both East and West? Why

of peaceful ct>-existence." 

January 25, I960 


should we not ulways have himented the b:irriei-s 
which, during a long and evil time, made the 
Volga and Neva alien streams for us? It is, in 
retrospect, unfortunate that the Soviet Union was 
not present at the e^irlier conference of UNESCO, 
despite earnest and repeated requests from the 
Government of the United States. I note with 
very great satisfaction that there has been a 
change of climate, and I wish to take full cogni- 
zance of this before proceeding to be rather critical 
of the resolution wliich Professor Sissakian has 

Problem of Illiteracy and Poverty 

Tliere are in this resolution, in the main, three 
considerations. The first is this: We are asked 
to assume that, as a result of disarmament, pro- 
fusely large sums of money will be made available 
to relieve illiteracy and poverty tlirougliout the 
world. God knows that no one could be more in 
favor of that possibility than we are, but I would 
say in all candor that we already know what 
these needs are. One of my colleagues, Professor 
Paulo Carneii-o, for example, has informed us 
that not less than $100 million a year for 10 years 
would be i-equired to solve the problem of illit- 
eracy in Latin America. There exist, at the 
United Nations and at all our own American 
agencies, documents galore which reflect the 
need — the dire, desi>erate need — of millions of 
people, to whom Chesterton refers, "thronging 
like the thousands up from under the sea." 

Our problem is not now to ask UNESCO what 
are the dimensions of illiteracy and poverty in the 
world. Our problem is first of all to say, "What 
can we now do in order to alleviate these difficul- 
ties?" And I can only tell you that (and I think 
here again I will revert to what Professor Car- 
neiro said) there are not merely people in my 
country but in all the countries of the world who 
are giving of their substance daily to relieve this 
distress. He referi-ed to the action taken by tlie 
bishops of the West German Federal Kepublic. 
We know of .so many more — I will not take up 
your time enumei-ating them — but I merely want 
to make one illustration. Heaven knows that the 
people of Greece are poor enough, but not long 
ago we recx^ivcd from two villages in that coimtry 
a donation which wa,s sent to an American organi- 
zation in the hope of improving the lot of school- 
children in India. 

I want now, if I may, to say this about 
UNESCO and its work. Sometimes we think 
that there is nothing very glamorous about 
UNESCO. Tlus may be true. It does not con- 
cern itself with traumatic and dramatic experi- 
ences but with the daily, nourishing, creative work 
of the human mind. Therefore I would say that 
we should be grateful for the fact that we have 
come so far. 

The other evening, after a long series of meet- 
ings, I sat for a while reading the excellent study 
which our colleague, Mr. Gardner Davies, has 
devoted to the French poet Mallanne, and my eye 
lighted on that poet's line: Toute notre native 
amitie monotone. This amicableness, this ainitie, 
that we feel is native to the human spirit. It may 
be a bit monotonous at times. I. for my part, am 
not at all satisfied with what UNESCO now is. 
I want to see it have, in the major lines of its 
effort, much more imagination, much more power, 
much more money, and I am grateful for the fact 
that the men who are guiding its destiny share 
these views with me. I see no occasion at the 
present time for turning aside from the efforts to 
which we are devoted in order to prepare a totally 
different outlook for the Organization. 

Principle of Peaceful Cooperation 

Now I shall come to the other two proposals in 
Professor Sissakian's resolution, about which I 
shall be even more critical, regretfidly enough. 
The first has to do with what he calls peaceful 
coexistence. Now "peacefid coexistence" is one 
term. We have pi-eferred another term, which is 
"peaceful cooperation." The difhculty is that 
"peaceful coexistence" ha,s a history. It has a 
history which from our point of view is not too 
glamorous, and I want, for mj- part., to be certain 
that there has been a close in one section of the 
book of the past and that from tliis time forw aid 
the words "peaceful coexistence" will moan some- 
thing else. T shall be explicit. There is a pro- 
posal in this resolution that we establish a 
conference to bo held on the basis of parity be- 
tween East and West. Now what in essence does 
this resolution seem to us to mean? It appears 
to us, and my country, to mean what we have 
often confronted in the United Nations, namely, 
a proposition that there bo set up a kind of parity 
between the United States and Eussia as a basis 
for a sort of summit mooting in wliich wo can 


Department of Sfofe Bulletin 


formulate a doctrine we might be able to sell to 
or, if necessary, to impose upon the Organization. 

Our concept, nuMuboi-s of (ho I?oard, of peaceful 
cooperation is a totally dill'erent one. AVe ilon"t 
want any UNESCO sununit conference. We ai-e 
deeply connnitted to the principle of the family 
of nations. We know that this family looks upon 
us often as the eldest child, who has inherited all 
the money and who is a little stingy about giving 
it away. We also know that members of the fam- 
ily sometimes are a bit exigent and expect of us 
things tliat we cannot supply. Nevertheless I 
wish, this afternoon, to reaflirm our faith in the 
family of nations and to tell you that what we 
mean by cooperation is this: that never will we 
consent to any kind of international intellectual 
organization in which the smallest one amongst 
us d(x>s not have equal rights to share in the dis- 
cussion and to arrive at the conclusions. It is for 
this reason, primarily, that we do not favor any 
kind of meeting under the auspices of UNESCO 
which is based on a principle of parity. 

There is another reason. From our point of 
view the United States is not a capitalistic coim- 
tr}'. We liave in our opinion long ceased to be one, 
and for my part, if I may say so, I tliink that Karl 
Marx would have great difficulty m recognizing 
the Soviet Union as a socialist country of the sort 
he had in mind. If I speak now of a parity of 
socialist and capitalist countries, I am not merely 
l)eing semantic but I am pointing out tliat just as 
there has been an inevitable trend in the whole 
field of disannament there has been an equally 
inevitable trend in the field of sociological and 
economic develoi^ment. Therefoi-e, I say, why not 
accept our principle of peaceful cooperation, which 
means in essence, that we will redcdicate ourselves 
to the problems of f ree<lom, of literacy, of emanci- 
pation from poverty insofar as education can make 
this possible and exjiend additional effort in de- 
veloping brilliantly the ways in which we can at- 
tack these situations. 

Sources of War Propaganda and Preparations 

And now, finally, I want to revert to the last 
part of the proposal about which Professor Sis- 
.sakian will pardon me if I say that I have some 
very serious i-escrvations. This is the jiassage in 
his document which refere to the fact that we have 
to fight against preparations for and propaganda 
for another war. This also has a long and serious 

January 25, I960 

For the past 10 yeare my country has been cast, 
and not by itself, in tiie role of the originator of 
this kind of pro[)iiganda. There have been dozens 
of international conferences which wo have not 
attended in which every resolution that w^as pas.sed 
called attention to the fact that from somewliero 
between AViishington and New York there ema- 
nated a constant stream of declarations hostile to 
the cause of peace. Now I want to be sure, Ix'fore 
I dedicate UNESCO to anything like this, that it, 
in turn, is not to participate in a conference of 
this character, tliat when wo talk seriously, man 
to man, about propaganda for warfare and prepa- 
ration for war, we will look present international 
situations squarely in the eye. "WHiere is propa- 
ganda for war being made ? Wliere is activity for 
the promotion of military effort taking place? If 
the proposal is to look honestly at the current 
sources of propaganda and of military prepara- 
tion, I can assure Professor Sissakian that I will 
be present for that conference. 

This then, I think, more or less summarizes my 
point of view. I have, however, a rex:ommendat ion 
to make. This I am going to introduce with a 
quotation from Abraham Lincoln. Tliis is the 
greatest testament of my country: "With malice 
toward none, with charity for all, with firmness 
in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us 
strive on to finish the work we are in." I agree 
that this work is the building of a peace for which 
all the peoples of the world ardently long and of 
which they constantly dream, and I am going to 
suggest that between now and the next General 
Conference the distinguished delegate from the 
Soviet Union and I, severally in our ways, draw 
up for consideration at the next General Confer- 
ence a bill of particulars of what he would liave 
UNESCO do in terms of the principle of peaceful 
coexistence and what I would have UNESCO do 
in tei-ms of peacef lU cooperation. 

We will go home to our several countries. He 
can consult his great leader, and I will consult 
mine. We will not compare notes and perhaps no 
one could hope this more deeply than do I. And 
I repeat what I said at the outset: As I talk this 
afternoon I think of I>eon Blum, and as I talk this 
afternoon I think of what I owe pei-sonally, and 
will owe eve 17 day of my life, to tlie inspiration of 
the great masters of Russian literature. I pro- 
foundly hope that, when we come back with the 
two lists of proposals which I have suggested this 


afternoon, there will bo so much agi-eement be- 
tween us that UNESCO can then proceed to say, 
"At last we have opened an era in wliich a genuine 
mejisure of cooperation and friendship is possible." 
I shall even confess to Professor Sissakian that, 
being the kind of man I am, I shall go back to my 
homeland and pray daily that liis list may be in- 
spired with even greater wisdom than my own. It 
is in this spirit that I would like to conclude the 
remarks I wish to make on his resolution.

Area of Challenge, Change, and Progress 

From the isolation imposed by geography and a colonial pattern 
of control, most of the lands and peoples of Southeast Asia have re- 
cently been thrust into the midst of international politics mainly as 
a result of national movements which led them to independence. Tliis 
15-page illustrated pamphlet discusses the problems of this sudden 
transformation, and contains background information on the geogra-

ton for Paris on January 10 to represent the 
United States at a meeting of a Special Economic 
Committee on January 12 and 13^ a meeting of the 
20 governments which are members or associates 
of the Organization for European Economic 
Cooperation on January IJt^ and a ministerial 
meeting of the OEEC Council., also on Janu- 
ary 14.. Following is a series of statements made

Press release 5 dated January 9 

My trip to Paris has two purposes : 

On Jaiiuai-y 12 and 13 I will attend a meeting 
of representatives of a number of governments 
and the European Economic Commiasion. This 
meeting was called in accordance with an under- 
standing reached by President Eisenhower, Presi- 
dent de Gaulle, Prime Minister Macmillan, and 
Chancellor Adenauer at their conference in Paris 
on December 21.^ 

On Januai-y 14 I will represent the United 
States at the ministerial meeting of the Council 
of the OEEC. 

It will be our purpose on January 12 and 13 
to consider the need for and possible methods of 
continuing consultation on the important prob- 
lems of expanding liberal multilateral world 
trade and stimulating aid to the less developed 
countries of the free world. These are complex 
and difficult problems. We do not expect to solve 
them during the course of the next week, nor do 

we plan to make decisions aflfecting other coun- 
tries without full consultation with them. But 
it is my hope that we will be able to decide upon 
practical steps which might be taken to devise 
tlie means most suitable for close consultation on 
these subjects. 

The OEEC Coimcil and the Executive Secre- 
tary of the General Agreement on Tariffs and 
Trade will be fully informed of the discussions 
held on January 12 and 13. 

Since the end of the Second World War the 
free nations of the world have made tremendous 
progress in devising entirely new concepts and 
new means of cooperation with each other. I 
am confident that the spirit of cooperation wliich 
has made possible the accomplishments of the past 
will serve us equally well in dealing with the 
challenges of the future. 

' The governments and organizations represented at the 
meeting on Jan. 12 and 13 were : 

Belgium Netherlands 

Canada Portugal 

Denmark Sweden 

France Switzerland 

Germany United Kingdom 

Greece United States 

Italy EEC Commission 

^The member countries of the OEEC and associates 
represented at the meeting on Jan. 14 were :

February I, 7960 



During my last visit to Europe in early Decem- 
ber,* I had a most welcome opportimity to dis- 
cuss infoi-mally with a number of my European 
friends and colleagues matters relating to certain 
trade problenas and the challenge facing the in- 
dustrialized nations of the free world to assist 
the less developed countries. 

Since then, President Eisenliower, President de 
Gaulle, Prime Minister Macmillan, and Chancel- 
lor Adenauer have proposed an infonnal meeting 
to consider the need and possible methods for con- 
tinumg close consultation on these problems. I 
look forward to representing the United States at 
that meeting, which has been called for January 
12 and 13. 

Immediately thereafter, on Januaiy 14, I will 
also represent the United States at the ministerial 
meeting of the OEEC Council. This will provide 
an opportunity for the participants in the Jan- 
uary 12-13 meeting to inform the entire OEEC of 
their discussions. 

It seems to me that we now face two tasks. The 
first is to consider immediate steps to have early 
informal consultations on the trade pi"oblems I 
have spoken of and also on development assist- 
ance. Our second task is to consider a long-range 
plan for continuing international consultations 
in the future. 

We now seek constructive solutions to new 
challenges facing us today. As we do so, I am 
confident that the same spirit of cooperation 
which has made possible the extraordinary eco- 
nomic progress of the 1950's will serve us equally 
in the decade ahead. 

UARY 12 

Press release 13 dated January 14 

I wish to thank you, ]\Ir. Chairman, and the 
members of the Special Economic Committee for 
this opportunity to present the views of the United 
States regarding the major tasks to which my 
Government hopes this Committee will address 

itself in the limited time at its disposal today 
and tomorrow. 

I will begin by discussing the background of the 
conuuunique which was issued on December 21 
following the close of the recent Western summit 
meeting and from which we draw our terms of 
reference. Then I would like to lay before the 
Committee for its consideration certain proce- 
dural suggestions for future work. 

There is no need for me to repeat the text of 
the commimique of December 21. The essence of 
it is that we are invited to consider procedures 
designed to insure that three important economic 
questions will be given prompt and serious inter- 
national attention. 

The first of these questions relates to the com- 
mercial policies of the members of the European 
Economic Community [EEC] and of the proposed 
European Free Trade Association [EFTA] ^ 
with respect to trade with other countries, includ- 
ing their trade with each other. 

The second is that of enlarging the flow of 
development capital from the industrialized free 
world to the less developed areas. 

The third is the problem of finding the best 
mechanism for continuing international consulta- 
tions on major economic problems, including the 
problem of development assistance. 

You are all of course aware that the conununique 
of December 21 was based upon a proposal put for- 
ward by the United States. This proposal of ours 
was fonnulated in the light of discussions in recent 
weeks between the Government of the United 
States and several European governments. Presi- 
dent Eisenhower had occasion to discuss certain of 
these matters during his recent trip, first in Rome 
and later in Paris. I also discussed them with the 
representatives of several governments and with 
the Commission of the European Economic Com- 
munity in the course of my recent visit to London, 
Brussels, Bonn, and Paris, as did Assistant Secre- 
tary of the Treasury [T. Graydon] ITpton on an 
earlier trip. 

As a result of these talks my Government came 
to the following conclusions. 

' Mr. Dillon In Kviropo Dec. 7-14 ; for an announce- 
ment of his itinerary, see Bulletin of Dec. 14, 1959, 
p. 862. 

' The KEC. sometimes calletl the "Inner Six," is com- 
posed of Helgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, 
and the Netherlands. The EFTA, sometimes called the 
"Outer Seven," is composed of Austria, Denmark, Norway, 
PortuRal, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. 


Deparlmeni of State Bulletin 

Question of European Trade 

Firet, we coiicUulcd tliat the trade problems now 
omorfiinji: in Western Europe presented certain 
il;iM<j:ei-s. On tile one liand was tiie danger (liat 
tliese trade problems could lead to political and 
economic frictions within Europe which might 
weaiaMi the coiiesion of the free world. On the 
other was the danger that, in an effort to solve the 
regional Euro])oan trade problem, mcasiu'es might 
l)e taken wliich could seriously impair the world- 
wide trading principles established in the General 
Agi-eemcnt on Tariffs and Trade. 

These dangei-s, political and economic, are not 
ones which the United States can safely ignore. 
To mention only the economic aspect, it is clear 
that the development of United States conuner- 
cial policy cannot be divorced from developments 
in such an important area of world trade as West- 
ern Europe. All would agree, I think, that the 
pursuit of a liberal commercial policy by the 
United States is essential to the functioning of 
an effective world trading system. United States 
commercial policy, however, is not fonned in a 
vacuum. It can be kept liberal only insofar as 
other major trading countries also pui-sue liberal 
policies. Viewing the matter in both its political 
and economic aspects, we believe that the Euro- 
pean trade question is an urgent one and requires 
the earliest possible attention. The history of 
this problem makes clear that there is no esisy 
solution readily at hand. It is likely therefore 
that this subject will require continuing consulta- 

Question of Enlarged Development Assistance 

The second conclusion to which we came as a 
result of our talks was that there is great aware- 
ness in Western Europe of the increasing role 
which Europe is bound to play in the provision of 
development assistance to the newly developing 
areas of the free world and that tliere exists a 
desire for cooperation with the United States and 
other capital-exporting nations in this common 
endeavor which is so vital to the preservation of 

At the same time, many questions have been 
raised as to the best methods of mobilizing na- 
tional resources for development assistance and 
of bringing about a more effective exchange of 
1. views and experience among the capital-exporting 

February 1, 1960 

nations which iiave the capacity to provide these 

Tlie problem of development assistance — like 
that of the trade proljlem to which 1 have re- 
fen-ed — is also one in which the United States 
lias a deep interest because of its substantial activi- 
ties in this field. We wish to work closely with 
Western Europe and Canada in an endeavor to 
jn-ovide tiie external development capital which 
tlie developing areas of tiie free world must have 
if their own efforts to achieve economic progress 
under conditions of freedom are to succeed. 

Question of Successor to OEEC 

The third conclusion to which I came as a result 
of our discussions was that there was need fiar 
improving the machineiy of international eco- 
nomic cooperation so as to create a better mecha- 
nism for dealing with major economic issues with 
a strengthened relationship between the United 
States and the other countries concerned. With 
this in view we felt that study sliould be given to 
revitalizing and broadening the work of the Or- 
ganization for European Economic Cooperation 
through the establislunent of a successor organiza- 
tion in which the United States could become a 
full member. 

The OEEC has succeeded outstandingly in its 
major tasks of furthering the recovery of West- 
ern Europe. Even though many of the tasks for 
which it was originally created have now been 
largely accomplished, the OEEC is continuing to 
do valuable work. The habits of cooperation 
which have been developed tlirough its efforts 
should be maintained and strengthened. For the 
new challenges which have emerged require the 
closest cooperation I\y all of us. For its part the 
United States is prepared to play a full and active 
part in such an effort. 

Looking to the years ahead we see two main 
economic objectives which will require continuing 
attention. Thase are (1) the objective of promot- 
ing the economic development of the less developed 
areas, through bilateral methods as well as 
through the multilateral institutions already exist- 
ing or about to be created; and (2) the objective 
of assuring stability and growth in the world 

Ivct me make one thing clear. If, as a result of 
this week's meetings, a study is imdertaken of the 
methods of improving cooperation in the economic 


field, we feel that such a study should not affect the 
good work presently under way in the OEEC. 
This should continue as at present. If, as a result 
of the proposed studies, it should later be deter- 
mined by the member countries of the OEEC that 
a successor organization would be desirable, then 
and only then would it be time to transform the 
operations of the OEEC so as to adapt them to 
the requirements of the successor organization. 

These, then, were the substantive conclusions 
which emerged from our consideration of current 
economic problems following our discussions with 
several European governments. 

Need for International Action on Economic Problems 

Tlie three economic questions which I have men- 
tioned — the question of European trade, the ques- 
tion of enlarged development assistance, and the 
question of a successor organization to the 
OEEC — are in many resjiects separate questions. 
Yet these three questions have one thing in com- 
mon, which is that there is no existing interna- 
tional institution through which they may be 
successfully attacked. 

The urgent question of European trade is not 
being discussed in the OEEC, partly for historical 
reasons with which all of the members of this 
Committee are familiar. Nor, because of aspects 
which go beyond the realm of commercial policy, 
can it be discussed effectively in the large forum 
of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade. 
In our judgment this question can only be ad- 
dressed with any prospect of progress in a limited 
but representative group such as this Committee. 

The question of coordination of broad national 
policies relating to worldwide development assist- 
ance would appear to require the full participation 
of all countries actively engaged in this effort. 
The OEEC as presently constituted is seriously 
handicapped in this effort since the United States 
is not a full member. And, while the World Banlc 
can be helpful in providing many kinds of infor- 
mation and in bringing countries together on spe- 
cific projects in which the Bank has an interest, 
it is itself a lending institution which is not organ- 
ized in such a way as to make possible the intei-- 
national discussion of broad policies, including 
national lending policies and the programs of 
those members which provide, or desire to provide, 

external capital for development on a bilateral 
basis over and above their contribution to inter- 
national organizations. 

Finally, the question of whether there should 
be a successor organization to the OEEC, which 
would continue existing functions of the OEEC, 
which would add important new fimctions, and 
which would allow the United States and, we 
hope, Canada to assume the role of full members, 
can, in our view, only be discussed directly by all 
the governments concerned outside the framework 
of the institutional structure of the OEEC. 

It was against this background, Mr. Chairman, 
that we proposed, at the time of the Western sum- 
mit meeting, the creation of this Committee to 
formulate appropriate procedures to further inter- 
national consideration of the three major eco- 
nomic problems to which I have referred. 

U.S. Offers Procedural Suggestions 

Since the publication of the communique of 
December 21 and the issuance by the French Gov- 
ernment of the invitation to participate in the 
Special Economic Committee, my Government has 
been in continuing consultation both with the 
governments repi-esented here and with other gov- 
ernments regarding the work of this Committee. 
In the light of these consultations I would like to 
place before the Committee the following pro- 
cedural suggestions : first, for studying the desir- 
ability of a successor organization to the OEEC; 
second, for discussing, pending the establishment 
of such a successor organization, the problems of 
development assistance to the less developed areas ; 
and, third, for giving early attention to the Euro- 
pean trade questions. 

Committee To Study OEEC Reorganization 

In considering the desirability of a successor 
organization to the OEEC I think you will all 
agree that any such decision can only be taken by 
the 20 governments who are members of or asso- 
ciated with the OEEC. Furthermore all these 
governments must have adequate opportunity to 
thoroughly consider the matt«r so that we may 
all be certain that we are obtaining the best pos- 
sible mechanism for handling the important eco" 
nomic problems which will face us in the futui^e. 
Accordingly we would suggest that this matter be 


Department of State Bulletin 

thoroughly considered tvnd discussed at a meeting 
of senior officials representing the 20 governments. 
The etforts of such a group would be greatly 
facilitated by the pi-eparation of adequate work- 
ing paj^ers. The^e could best be prepared by a 
very small group. It is our view that this pre- 
paratoiy working gi'oup should consist of not 
more than three pei-sons: one of whom might be 
chosen from the EFTA coimtries, the second from 
the EEC countries, and the third from the other 
countries who are members of or associated with 
the OEEC. Once chosen, this Committee of Three 
would be expected to obtain the views of each 
of the 20 governments and to prepare a report for 
submission to the 20 governments. This report 
might outline the general problems to be faced 
and miglit include a draft charter. These docu- 
ments could then servo as the initial working 
dociunents for the conference of officials to which 
I have referred. 

If, as a result of the conference of officials, gen- 
eral agreement emerged on the desirability of a 
successor organization, a ministerial meeting 
could be convened to decide any remaining points 
at issue and to approve a new charter, which would 
then be submitted to governments for ratification. 

It would be our thought that, if the Special 
Economic Committee agrees on a procedure such 
as I have outlined relating to the establishment 
of a successor organization to the OEEC, the Com- 
mittee should recommend it to all of the 20 gov- 
ernments of the OEEC, whose representatives will 
be assembled on the occasion of the meeting of the 
OEEC Council on January 14. 

The procedure I have outlined is designed to 
give every member country of the OEEC full op- 
portunity to participate in this work from the be- 
ginning. "We have been aware during the weeks 
following the communique of December 21 that 
many countries were uncertain as to what the 
United States had in mind in proposing consider- 
ation of a new mechanism of consultation to fol- 
low the OEEC. We have heard, on the one hand, 
that our objective was to weaken the EFTA, on 
the other, to weaken the EEC, and, finally, that we 
might be desirous of establishing some soi-t of 
directorate to make decisions for others. 

Let me state clearly what our motivation 
actually was. It was very simple. We felt that 
the time had come when the new problems facing 
the world, particularly the necessity of marshaling 

the total economic resources of the free world in 
the most effective manner to meet the challenge 
posed by the newly developing countries, recjuired 
a close and fully equal collaboration between the 
United States and tlie now completely recovered 
countries of Western Europe. The creation of a 
new organization seemed unthinkable. It was 
only natural to explore the possibilities of com- 
bining everything that is best in the OEEC with 
a changed framework that would permit full and 
equal United States participation. We recognize 
that the OEEC performs and should continue to 
perform certain functions that are purely Euro- 
pean in character and in which our participation 
would not be appropriate. We would hope that 
all such activities as are found to be of continuing 
usefulness by the members would continue on a 
purely European basis unaffected by our assump- 
tion of full membership in a new parent body. 

Development Assistance Group 

Now as to the problem of development assist- 
ance and its better coordination. If the study of 
the successor organization to the OEEC results in 
general agreement that such an organization 
should be established, we assume that it may be 
as long as 18 months before the new organization 
could come into being. We therefore propose that 
in the meantime a limited group be constituted 
consisting of those countries in a position to make 
an effective long-term bilateral contribution to the 
flow of funds to the less developed countries. We 
believe that this group on development assistance 
should operate in an informal manner and that it 
should consult, whenever desirable, with the 
World Bank, the OEEC, and other appropriate 
national or mtemational institutions. A major 
task of the development assistance group would be 
to discuss the most effective methods of mobilizing 
national resources for development assistance as 
well as of providing such assistance to recipient 
countries in the most useful manner. There is not 
only a real need for an increased flow of long-term 
private and public funds from the industrial 
countries whose reserves have increased in recent 
years but also a real need to provide investments, 
loans, and assistance to the less developed coun- 
tries in ways which will make the maximum con- 
structive contribution to their economies. The 
United States would be prepared to make avail- 
able to this group information on its own lending, 

Februory 7, J 960 


assistance, and investment guaranty operations 
with the thought that our experience might be use- 
ful to others in considering their own programs. 

We do not envisage that the development as- 
sistance group should attempt to engage in a 
"burden sharing" exercise or seek to reach deci- 
sions on amounts of assistance to be provided to 
specific countries or areas. If, during its delibera- 
tions, it appears that two or more countries desire 
to cooperate in assistance to particular countries, 
then it would be desirable to consult promptly with 
the recipient country or perhaps enlist the good 
offices of the World Bank. This, as you know, has 
been the procedure followed successfully by a num- 
ber of capital-exporting nations and the World 
Bank in coordinating assistance to India. 

We believe that the development assistance 
group would not require any special international 
staff. It could, however, make efl'ective use of 
certain studies which might be carried out by the 
staff of the OEEC. Useful studies wliich the 
OEEC might appropriately undertake at this time 
would be : 

(a) The development of up-to-date statistics 
on the actual amoimt of financing which various 
countries have undertaken in their transactions 
with the less developed countries, as well as the 
various types of financing, the relative maturities, 
and the countries to which assistance has gone. 

(b) A factual survey of existing national or- 
ganizations in the investment, lending, and assist- 
ance field through which funds are made available 
to the less developed countries, the policies of 
these organizations, the funds currently available 
to them, and the source of the funds. 

(c) An analysis of the various types of incen- 
tives to foreign investment in the less developed 
countries which may exist or be under considera- 
tion in the industrial countries. 

These studies, as you will have observed, cor- 
respond in general with certain of the recom- 
mendations of the OEEC staff, which are to be 
considered at the meeting of the OEEC Council 
on January 14. Certain other recommendations 
of the OEEC staff in the field of development 
assistance would, in our judgment, be premature, 
and we will speak to that point at the January 14 

We propose that the development assistance 

group consist of those of us who, in addition to 
their contributions in multilateral organizations, 
now make, or might be prepared to make, signifi- 
cant bilateral contributions to development. Such 
a gi'oup might include, for example, Canada, 
France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, the 
United States, and the Commission of the Euro- 
pean Economic Community. 

Continuation of Speciai Economic Convmittee 

The tliird and last procedural proposal which 
we wish to put forward is that there be agree- 
ment on the forum in which the European trade 
questions referred to in the communique of Decem- 
ber 21 could be discussed from time to time, pend- 
ing the decision on a successor organization to 

We suggest that this Special Economic Com- 
mittee should be continued for this purpose. 
Although we have heard various alternative sug- 
gestions regarding the composition of an appro- 
priate group, we are inclined to doubt that a better 
formula can be found. In any case, the problems 
to be considered are of such potential seriousness 
and urgency that they should not be put aside 
pending the possible creation of a new organiza- 
tion, which probably could not take place for some 
18 months. If agreement can be reached that this 
body is appropriate for this purpose, we would 
hope that the date and place, for its first meeting 
could be agreed upon at this time. We believe 
that this first meeting should be held soon and 
should be attended by senior officials, with minis- 
terial meetings to be called thereafter as necessary. 

The group to deal with these trade questions 
would not, of coui-se, affect the continuing work 
of the Contracting Parties to the General Agree- 
ment on Tariffs and Trade or the Steering Board 
for Trade of the OEEC. 

This completes the presentation of our views, 
Mr. Cliairman. In order to facilitate consid- 
eration by (lie Committee of the procedural 
suggestions we have made, we ]ia\e prepared 
drafts of the formal actions which the Committee 
might take on each of the three procedural ar- 
rangements — the study of the reorganization of 
the OEEC, the establishment of the development 
assistance group and its tei-ms of reference, and 
the continuation of the Special Committee to dis- 
cuss the trade problem. These drafts are being

Press roleasp 19 dated January 15 

Thank you, Mr. Ciiuirman, for giving me this 
opportunity to comment on tlie excellent report 
by the distinguished cliairman of tlie Sj^ecial Eco- 
nomic Committee, Mr. [Joseph M. A. 11.] Luns. 
He has most ably summarized the outcome of our 
meeting yesterday. I am glad tiiat he stressed — 
and I myself wish to underline — the fact that all 
of us who pai-ticipated in the informal meetings 
fully recognized tlie interest of all member coun- 
tries of the OEEC, as well as the two associate 
members, in this matter. I trust the full report 
which has just been made will reassiu'e all the gov- 
erimients represented here today that there was 
no intention on the part of any of us — and this 
has certainly been the case so far as my own Gov- 
ernment is concemed — to proceed further without 
full consultation with all OEEC governments. 

Arrangements were made, I know, for all of you 
to receive copies of my remarks Tuesday evening 
at the opening meeting of the Special Economic 
Committee. Therefore I believe it is unnecessary 
for me to comment at any length on the reasons 
which prompted the proposals my Government 
has put forward. The essence of the United 
States position is that there are new challenges 
and new opportimities facing the free woi-ld. A 
greater degree of effective collaboration is needed 
to insure that we will be successful in meeting the 
new situation. 

The objective of my Government in these dis- 
cussions has been to reach agreement on an orderly 
method of beginning an exploration of three dis- 
tinct problems: first, the question of trade which 
has arisen here in Europe but whose ramifications 
are truly worldwide in scope; second, tlie question 
of how to mobilize economic resources more effec- 
tively to promote the economic development of 
less developed areas; and, third, the need for new 
methods of economic cooperation which will pro- 
mote stability and growth in the world economy. 

All 20 governments represented here today 
must obviously participate from the very begin- 
ning in work relating to the question of organiza- 

tional arrangements. 1 am sure that you will find 
that tills is fully provided for in the resolution 
recomnii'iuliMl by the Sfjecial Coinniitfeo. 

In concluding my remarks, Mr. Chairman, I 
should like to emphasize one point to which 
my Government attaches particular iniportance. 
That is the necessity that the good work of the 
OEEC continue imchanged during this period 
when we will be considering the possibilities for 
improved cooperation. We favor the formation 
of a reconstituted organization adapted to the 
needs of today. Subject to the approval of our 
Congress, the United States would be prepared to 
assume full and active membei-ship in an appropri- 
ately reconstituted organization. In the mea.n- 
tinie we are confident that the OEEC will proceed 
vigorously and creatively with the significant 
work before it.

Press release 22 dated January 16 

I have just returned from Paris, where I repre- 
sented the United States at the regular ministerial 
meeting of the Organization for European Eco- 
nomic Cooperation and also at special meetings of 
the 20 governments which are members or asso- 
ciates of the OEEC. 

At these special meetings the 20 governments 
reached decisions which are of great potential 
importance for the future of economic cooperation 
in the free world. Agreement was reached to work 
together for the establishment of a successor or- 
ganization to the OEEC in which the United 
States could participate as a full member and 
which would facilitate cooperation between the 
industrialized nations of the free world in meeting 
the major economic problems which will face the 
world during the coming decade. 

As a result of the Paris decisions we also have 
reason to expect that a serious and successful effort 
will now be made to solve the problems of Euro- 
pean trade connecte<l with tlie European Economic 
Community and the European! Free Trade Asso- 
ciation—the Six and the Seven. We have obtained 
assurances that any solution will tjike full account 
of the interests of the United States and other 
countries in accordance with the principles of the 
General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade. 

February 1, I960 


Also during the Paris meetings the governments 
of a number of capital-exporting nations agreed to 
consult together on their efforts to provide devel- 
opment assistance to the less developed areas. 
This group vrill probably hold its first meeting in 
Washinsrton in the near future.

President's Visit to Soviet Union 
Set for June 10-19 

White House press release dated January 17 

As already announced earlier,^ the Chairman 
of the Coimcil of Ministers of the U.S.S.R., N. S. 
Khruslichev, invited the President of the United 
States to pay an official vdsit to the Soviet Union at 
a time suitable for liim. President Eisenliower 
accepted with pleasure the in\'itation of N. S. 

As a result of subsequent personal exchanges be- 
tween the Chairman of the Coimcil of Ministers, 
X. S. Khruslichev, and President Eisenhower, it 
was agreed that the President would make his visit 
in the Soviet Union from the 10th until the 19th 
of June 1960. 

U.S. Comments on Soviet Proposal 
To Reduce Armed Forces 

Statement by Lincoln White 
Director, Office of Nexos ^ 

We note with interest the Soviet Union's an- 
nouncement of an approximate 1.2-million-men 
proposed reduction in its conventional armed 
forces and a readjustment in its conventional 
armaments. "We also note that these reductions 
are to be carried out within the next 1 to 2 years. 
This proposed action to reduce present massive 
Soviet armed forces could lessen one of the causes 
of existing world tensions. The announcement 
■was not unexpected, since the Soviet Union, along 
with other modem nations, is now in a position to 
place greater reliance on new weapons. 

In this connection Chairman Khrushchev has 

emphasized that tiie proposed reductions would in 
no way affect the actual power of tlie Soviet 
Union's arms. The Soviet Union, with its 
acknowledged— I might say parcnthoficuily for 
the first time — its acknowledged armed force level 
of 3.6 million, and its neighbor, Communist China, 
maintain tlie largest standing armies in the world. 
This fact has been a constant source of concern to 
those nations earnestly seeking a solution to the 
dangers inherent in the annaments race. 

For its part the United States, not in 1960 but 
immediately following World War II, demo- 
bilized the great bulk of its armed forces from a 
peak level of 12.3 million. In view of Conununist 
aggression the level was later raised and stands 
today at approximately 2.5 million. In addition 
the United States has carried out corresponding 
reductions in its conventional armaments. 

As in the case of previous unilateral Soviet an- 
nouncements, the proposed reductions can be taken 
only as an intention since there will be no verifiable 
means of checking any actual reductions. An 
opportunity to achieve controlled international 
measures of disarmament will be offered at the 
general disarmament negotiations scheduled for 
the early part of this year.^ At these negotiations 
the United States will be prejjared to go as far 
toward safeguarded disarmament as any other 
country. It is hoped that this announcement by 
the Soviet Union is an indication of its willingness 
to participate in the forthcoming negotiations in 
the same spirit so that world accord can be estab- 
lished through concrete and verifiable measures of 
disarmament, thereby removing suspicions and 
building real security.

Geographic Regions of Asia : South and East 

iy G. Etzel Pearcy 

A zone arcing around the southern and eastern 
peripheries of the Asian Continent from the 
Makran coast of West Pakistan to Peter the Great 
Bay in Maritime Siberia coincides with the axes 
of the world's greatest population concentration. 
Some 1.4 billion people, more than half of the 
■world total, live in this part of Asia, including its 
fringing islands and archipelagoes. India and 
China together can claim more than a billion in- 
habitants; Japan, Indonesia, and Pakistan each 
are fast approaching 100 million. These enormous 
census counts exist despite the fact that settlement 
is broken in places by momitainous terrain, 
stretches of desert, or other areas inhospitable to 
man and his efforts to wrest a living from the soil. 

This populous crescent of Asia has a heritage 
accrued through tens of centuries — a much longer 
background than has Europe, which is better 
known to most Americans. Since World War II 
virtually every sector within the area has experi- 
enced political upheaval, adding confusion and, 
at times, chaos to an already complex pattern of 
civilization. Crisis has followed crisis imtil names 
such as Laos, Singapore, Kashmir, Tibet, Quemoy, 
and Panmunjom have been set in heavy type with 
weary regularity by our news services. Certainly 
today all parts of this arcuate region are written 
about at lengtli and discussed bv the delegate in 

• Mr. Pearcy is the Geographer of the 
Department of State. This is the third in 
a series of articles which he is v^rlting for the 
Bulletin on the notnervclature of geographic 
regions. For his articles on the Middle East 
ami Latin America, see Bulletin of March 23, 
1959, p. ^07, and September U, 1959, p. 38^. 

the assembly halls of the United Nations and the 
man on the street. 

Oddly enough, no generally accepted regional 
term is available for identifying the southern and 
eastern periphery of Asia as a unit. Joseph E. 
Spencer, professor of geogi-aphy at the University 
of California, Los Angeles, concentrated on this 
area in his textbook, Asia, South iy East, from 
which the title of this article is adapted. One 
must depend upon rather clumsy expressions such 
as "southern and eastern Asia" or "the southern 
and eastern parts of Asia" as terms for the entire 
region in question. Fortunately, however, a myr- 
iad of regional names designate many politico- 
geographic areas within the confines of the south- 
ern and eastern segments of the great continent. 
Each one normally comprises a combination of 
political entities, even though any two may over- 
lap to some degree. These regional names serve 
a useful purpose in discussing world affairs. 

A strictly geographic expression, "Monsoon 
Asia," can be used correctly to indicate that part 
of southern and eastern Asia which is associated 
with circulatory winds and heavy seasonal rain- 
fall. This area supports a ]iopulation running 
into hundreds of millions. But the word "mon- 
soon" has no politicogeographic significance, and 
as a result it has not gained wide acceptance ex- 
cept among geogi-aphers. 

The extensive land mass of Asia is frequently 
broken down into geograj^hic "realms," .some of 
which may be likened to subcontinents. George 
B. Cressey, professor of geography at Syracuse 
University, recognizes three such realms^(l) 
Subcontinent of India and Pakistan, (2) South- 
east Asia, and (3) China-Japan — which taken 
together generally connote southern and eastern 
Asia. This division, despite its lack of precision, 
lias gained favor witli other geograpliic writers;

nevertheless, some autliorities frown at puttinfjj 
the innermost pints of China in the same unit as 
the coastal part of the country and Japan. They 
do not find that Tokyo and Urumchi have much 
in common. The solution suggested is further 
subdivision tiiat would create another regional 
bloc encompassing the vast expanses of dry terri- 
tory remote from the coast. 

In current parlance the broad geographic zone 
sweeping around the southern and eastern edges 
of Asia might be said to comprise: (1) South 
Asia, (2) Southeast Asia, and (3) the Far East. 
South Asia appeai-s to be a comparatively new 
term supplanting the outmoded term of "subcon- 
tinent" to denote India and Pakistan together. 
Southeast Asia is properly chosen in relation to 
the orientation of the area it names. Far East in 
its more limited sense supersedes the use of the 
country names China and Japan to designate this 
huge area. But when examined in more detail, 
this apparently innocuous 3-way division is en- 
cumbered with problems in nomenclature and with 
inconsistencies. Each division in turn demands 
further clarification in order that one may better 
imderstand the interplay of regional terminology 
in this densely populated area. 

South Asia 

The politicogeographic region of South Asia 
encompasses India, Pakistan, Ceylon, Nepal, and 
Bhutan. The first three are members of the Brit- 
ish Commonwealth, India and Pakistan as inde- 
pendent republics and Ceylon as a dominion. 
Nepal ranks as a fully independent kingdom, but 
Bhutan continues to be guided by India in its 
external relations. Sikkim, situated along the 
northern boundary of India between Nepal and 
Bhutan, is b_v treaty a protectorate of India. 
However, one also sees it listed along with Bhutan 
as a semi-independent state. The Kashmir area, 
which unquestionably falls within the confines of 
South Asia, is known as the State of Jammu and 
Kashmir and is now considered by India for all 
intents and purposes as being a part of India. It 
is, however, the subject of a dispute between India 
and Pakistan. To continue itemizing the political 
entities that make up South Asia one must include 
the small Portuguese e.xclaves of Goa, Damao, and 
Diu, collectively known as Portuguese India. 
"Within recent years Pondichery and four other 



French exclaves have become integral parts of 
India, although some few legal measures must still 
be taken to complete the process. 

The place of Afghanistan in a regional group- 
ing is less clear cut. Though the boundary line 
of South Asia is usually extended to include Af- 
ghanistan, that coimtry may at times be identified 
as a part of the Middle East. Physically it is re- 
lated to the northern reaches of West Pakistan on 
the east, the barren plateau lands of Iran on the 
west, and the Central Asia Republics of the Soviet 
Union on the north. Border problems between 
Afghanistan and Pakistan hark back to tribal 
difficulties in the British-controlled North-West 
Frontier States before partition. Continuing 
problems in this area strengthen the relation- 
ship — or at least the association — of Afghanistan 
with South Asia. At present the Pathan (or 
Pushtim) question continues to focus attention on 
the Pakistan-Afghanistan boundary area. For 
example, one not infrequently sees references to 
"Pushtoonistan" (or "Paklitoonistan"), the name 
theoretically applied to the area inhabited by 
Pushtu-speaking tribes on both sides of the 

South Asia is not a timewom term. It should 
be distinguished from "southern Asia," a strictly 
direction-location term which could conceivably 
include as much as one-half of the entire continent 
and be geographically accurate. In the past the 
area now classed so conveniently as South Asia 
was held by some to be a part of the Middle East. 

February 1, J 960 


In fact, and not without some logic, this concej^t 
still persists to a limited extent. In direct con- 
t rast tlie same area has at times been placed within 
the domain of tlie Far East, especially among 
historians. By virtue of its central position on the 
soutliern side of tlie continent, one might face- 
tiously define South Asia as the zone where the 
Middle East and Far East overlap. 

Before partition in 1947 India was widely and 
even officially referred to as the Subcontinent. 
Tliis terminology automatically set it apart as a 
region of significant proportions. A more recently 
evolved term, "Indo-Pakistan Subcontinent," 
thougii far from unknown today, a})i)areiitly fails 
to replace the concept of an Indian subcontinent. 
With little doubt, the term "South Asia," concise 
and without strong competition, is a welcome addi- 
tion to the traditional list of comprehensive terms 
for this politicogeographic region. 

Lou'landi of South Asia 

AVithin South Asia one finds well-established 
subregions, most of them related to the broad geo- 
graphic features of either India or Pakistan or 
both. Some are of sufficient size and importance 
to exert a strong or even dominating influence on 
the politicogeographic balance of the much larger 

Across India and Pakistan from the Arabian 
Sea to the Bay of Bengal is a boomerang-shaped 
lowland extending for a distance of more than 
2,000 miles. Through a series of interrelated 
vallej's flow the waters of the Ganges, Indus, and 
Brahmaputra Kivers and their tributaries. Many 
of the legendary characters in Kipling's stories of 
British India have trod over the lowland, passmg 
through Delhi, Lahore, and Rawalpindi. The 
region lias tliree names: (1) Indo-Gangetic Plain, 
(2) Plain of Hindustan, and (;>) Plain of Xorth- 





l APAN:

ern India. Tlio latter name, it is significant to 
note, continues to be used, though nuich of the 
area involved lies in Pakistan. In order to limit 
the lowland area to Indian territory one may 
speak of the Ciangetic Tlain, or the trans-Gaiigetic 
Plain if one includes the low, fertile Punjab coiui- 
try in northwestern India. Even with this limi- 
tation the lowland is not entirely within a single 
country because the delta of the Ganges lies more 
in Pakistan than in India. 

The Mountain Wall 

North of the lowlands rises the mountain wall 
forming the southern reaches of the Himalayas. 
Except for Kashmir only fragments of India and 
Pakistan lie in the high mountainous region. 
Nevertheless, the dominating aspect of the Huna- 
layan sj'stem gives definite regional characteris- 
tics to the northern portions of the two countries. 
Terms that are used to designate this northern 
fringe include "Mountain "Wall" and the "Hima- 
layan Region." In the same vein Nepal, Bhutan, 
and Sikkim may be gi-ouped as the Himalayan 

Webster would hardly define the southern part 
of India as a peninsula. Its shape is actually that 
of a gigantic cape, though only Cape Comorin at 
the southern extremity of the comitry is so desig- 
nated generically. Nevertheless, the term "Indian 
Peninsula" finds common acceptance notwith- 
standing the fact that it carries two distinct mean- 
ings. First, "peninsula" may be used as an ad- 
jective applying to all of India as a peninsular 
country. Second, it may apply only to that part 
south of the Tropic of Cancer, which protrudes 
into the waters of the Indian Ocean (or, more 
precisely, into the waters of the Arabian Sea and 
the Bay of Bengal). 

The Deccan Plateau 

The huge Deccan Plateau, a distinctive physio- 
graphic region, roughly coincides with triangular- 
shaped peninsular India. Consequently "Deccan" 
has become a regional term, usually implying the 
high parts of the country south of the Narbada 
River. India and Pakistan have many "regions," 
some of them with populations reaching into the 
tens of millions, that are held together by cohesive 
traditions. The names of such regions may well 
have provided the basis for those of administra- 
tive divisions. Probably the two best known re- 

gions in this category are the Punjab and Bengal, 
homo of tlie Punjabi and the Bengali. Partition 
divided both regions, and now India has East 
Punjab and We^t Bengal, whereas Pakistan has 
West Punjab and East Bengal. As.sociated with 
the Punjab in AVest Pakistan, but extending into 
India, is the area of the Five Rivers, tributaries 
of the Indus: Beas, Chenab, .Jlielum, Ravi, and 
Sutlej. Here a physical region cut by an inter- 
national boundary assumes tremendous political 
significance because of the problem of equitable 
distribution of lifegiving water. Other regions 
also derive their names from physical features; 
for example, the Thar Desert, the Malabar Coast, 
and the Western Ghats. 

A imique example of logical regional thinldng 
lies in the use of the term "Hooghlyside" by 
Indians to denote the right bank of the Hooghly 
River, opposite Calcutta, which includes the great 
industrial city of Howrah. Origin of the terra 
must, of course, be credited to the British, who 
have their own Merseyside and Tyneside for simi- 
lar situations. 

Southeast Asia 

We can credit university circles for the in- 
creased use of the term "Southeast Asia." Since 
World War II several academic institutions, in- 
cluding Cornell University, have established area 
program studies concentrated on this part of the 
world. A rising tide of nationalism in lands im- 
mediately south of restless Commimist forces gives 
a certain stark unity to the southeastern segment 
of the Asian Continent. Recognition of its iden- 
tity as a regional bloc is further justified by virtue 
of its being pi-essed against the teeming millions 
of both the Indo-Pakistan community and China. 
Some of the countries of Southeast Asia are badly 
overcrowded, but for the most part the area has a 
population density somewhat less than critical. 

The pattern of political sovereignty in South- 
east Asia resembles a patchwork design. In his 
recent book. The DiTplomacy of Southeast Asia: 
191^5-1958, Russell II. Fifield of the University 
of Michigan counts eight independent states as 
comprising the region — Burma, Thailand, Viet- 
Nam, Cambodia, Laos, Malaya, Philippines, and 
Indonesia — but several fragmentary dependen- 
cies — Singapore, Sarawak, Brunei, North Borneo, 
and Portuguese Timor — are likewise included. 
Of the latter group all but Portuguese Timor are 

ftihruaty T, J 960 


British. "Western New Guinea, under Dutch ad- 
ministration, constitutes a special case and nor- 
mally is not considered to be a part of the region. 

As might be expected, some authorities take ex- 
ception to Dr. Fifield's delineation of Southeast 
Asia. Some authors include Taiwan in this re- 
gion, despite the close relationship of that island's 
histoiy to China and Japan. On the other hand, 
one seldom, if ever, finds Hong Kong and Macao 
included in any discussion of Southeast Asia. 
Even though it is far to the west, some foreign 
authors include Ceylon in the region. Other au- 
thorities would reduce the extent of Southeast 
Asia as defined by Dr. Fifield. British usage, for 
example, tends to omit the Philippines. Again, 
according to some scholars the term "Southeast 
Asia" should actually apply only to the mainland 
of tlie Asian Continent ; thus Indonesia as well as 
the Philippines would be excluded. Pakistan, by 
virtue of its membership in the Southeast Asia 
Treaty Organization, has a vital interest in 
Southeast Asian affairs, but only East Pakistan is 
geographically contiguous to the area. 

Before Southeast Asia became a popular term, 
several names prevailed for identifying regional 
blocs in this general sector of the continent. Some 
of these names remain in good standing and are 
readily recognizable; but for the most part they 
are gathering cobwebs or retain only historical 
value. As one example, "Farther India," a term 
seldom lieard now, refers to peninsular Southeast 
Asia. It may or may not encompass the Malay 
Peninsula. Complementing Farther India is the 
fading concept of Malaysia, wluch refers to an in- 
sular Southeast Asia, comprising all the islands — 
including the Philippines — that lie off the coast 
of Asia between the Indian and Pacific Oceans. 
It is the largest island group in the world. But 
these islands would also be included in the con- 
cept of Australasia.' Almost synonymous Avith 
Malaysia is "Malay Archipelago." However, the 
Malay Peninsula has at times been regarded as be- 
longing to the former, whereas it is seldom in- 
cluded in the latter. 

Th£, East I Tidies 

Although designating an area somewhat more 
restricted tlian Malaysia, "P]ast Indies" — more 

' Australasia is rarely associated with the area under 
discussion, thouRh according to most interpretations the 
two would overlap. 

specifically, "Netherlands East Indies" or "Dutch 
East Indies" — long served as a term to mark off 
the chain of islands extending from Sumatra to 
New Guinea. The familiar-sounding "Dutch 
East Indies" as a political term fell into disuse 
after Indonesia gained its independence in 1949. 
But geograpliically the term "East Indies" con- 
tinues to designate all of the Indonesian islands, 
together with British Borneo, Portuguese Timor, 
and the island of New Guinea and its offshore 
islands. "East Indies" may also apply to a more 
widespread area, in some cases including the 
Philippines. The term has even been used col- 
lectively to denote India, Farther India, and all 
the Malaysian area — tliis broad usage probably 
dating back to the old concept of the mystic lands 
of the East, from whence came the spices. Fi- 
nally, vague though it is, the term "the Indies" 
when used alone also means East Indies. 


Indochina (previously hyphenated as Indo- 
China) defies rational definition. Geographic 
and political versions of the name depart mark- 
edly one from the other, the latter now retaining 
only a historical meaning. In a purely physical 
sense Indochina is usually identified as being co- 
extensive with peninsular Southeast Asia, prob- 
ably excluding the Malay Peninsula by intent if 
not by actual definition. 

Conflicting with this geographic connotation, 
the term "Indochina" in a political sense formerly 
was used only in relation to the Frencli colonies 
of the peninsula. "French Indochina" was limited 
territorially to the eastern part of peninsular 
Southeast Asia comprising Annam, Cambodia, 
Cochinchina, Laos, and Tonkin, all major admin- 
istrative divisions within French Indochina. The 
creation in the early 1950's of the independent 
states of Viet-Nam (encompassing Annam, Co- 
chinchina, and Tonkin), Cambodia, and Laos 
vacated the name "French Indochina" as a valid 
political entity. The area including Viet-Nam, 
Cambodia, and Laos continues to be called Indo- 
china, but without muoli justification. If used at 
all, the term should also include Thailand, 
Burma, and possibly Malaya. 

It is interesting to see how some other countries 
apply regional names to Southeast Asia. The 
Chinese call it Nanyang, translated as "South 
Ocean." Similarly, the Japanese say Nanyo, 
which inonns "Soutlieast Seas Area." The Aus- 


Department of State Bulletin 

tralians, on the other hand, bemg faced with an- 
other set of directions in viewinj^ this part of tlie 
world have quite recently originated the rather 
startling term of "Near North." If we wished to 
apply the same i-easoning in our part of the world, 
we could perhaps call tiie Caribbean Islands and 
the northern coastal section of continental South 
America as the "Near South." 

The Word ''Malay'' 

Within Southeast Asia the word "Malay" is tiie 
key to a variety of regional concepts, botii geo- 
graphic and political. Malaysia and Malay Archi- 

febroary I, J 960

pelago have already been discussed, but, in a 
mucii more restricted sense, Malay, when used 
alone, refers only to the peninsula of that name. 
The Malay Peninsula includes the Federation of 
Malaya, or simply Malaya, and small sections of 
Burma and Tliaiiand. hnmediateiy to the south 
and connected by a causeway lies the island of 
Singapore, recently elevated in status from a 
crown colony to a state within the British Com- 
monwealth. Traditionally any reference to the 
Afalay Peninsula in a political sense included 
Singapore. But the independence of Malaya in 
1957 severed the intricate administrative relation-

ship between the two political entities. Note that 
tlie addition of an "a" to Malay, as in Malaya or 
in former British Malaya, refers to a political 
ratlier than geographic ai'ea. Three other terms 
no longer need to be considered except in a his- 
torical sense: "Malay States," "Federated IMalay 
States," and "Unfederated IMalay States"— all 
recoi'ds of water imder the bridge in tlie sequence 
of events brought about by resurgent nationalism 
in Southeast Asia. 

"Philippines," "Eepublic of the Pliilippines," 
and "Pliilippine Islands" are not synonyms. 
"Philippines" is the short form of "Eepublic of 
the Philippines" and is used more and more in 
referring to the relatively new island rei)ub!ic 
except on official documents. "The Philippine 
Islands" is strictly a geographic term, not erii- 
ployed by the Filipinos to designate their national 
domain. As an example, one could say that Ma- 
nila is located in the Philippine Islands and that 

it is the present seat of government of the (Re- 
public of the) Philippines.'' 

Far East 

Passing counterclockwise from Southeast Asia 
along the periphery of the continent one reaches 
the vast region made up of China, Japan, and 
Korea. Maritime Siberia as well as scattered off- 
shore islands may at times be considered as part 
of the same region, though usually by inference 
rather than by definition. "Far East" appears to 
be the most acceptable term for the area in ques- 
tion. It has the asset of long tradition in apply- 
ing to the eastern part of Asia. On the other 
hand, "Far East" denotes no sharp delineation. 
Tlie broadest definition normally given would con- 
sist of the enormous land mass of Asia eastward 
from the Khyber Pass and Lake Baikal. Even 
South Asia and Southeast Asia would be incor- 
porated into this broad interpretation of the term. 
Conversely, the narrowest interpretation would 
confine the area to Japan, Korea, and a China 
shorn of its innermost reaches. It is readily ap- 
parent that South Asia and Southeast Asia are 
terms far more precise than Far East. 

Another term not without some specific regional 
connotations is "East Asia." Less widely recog- 
nized than Far East, it may be applied to about 
the same area. In the new geogi'aphy textbook 
7'he Pattern of Asia, edited by Norton Ginsburg 
of the Universit}' of Chicago, "East Asia" is given 
preference over "the Far East." The point is 
made that ". . . the term 'Far East' came to be 
applied to East Asia." As a further example, 
the Japanese prior to World War II coined the 
expression "Greater East Asia Coprosperity 
Sphere." Here a regional term lent itself to 
political and military action. 

More vague than either "the Far East" or "East 
Asia" is the term "Orient." Though strong in 
cultural implications, it is becoming obsolete in 
a regional sense. Plowever, there are those who 
continue to look upon China and Japan as the 
Oirient. Othei-s would also sweep Korea and 
Soutlicast Asia into the category because of com- 
mon cultural patterns and religious traditions as

well as a somewhat similar physio <i;iiomy of (lie 
people tlii-oujihout Miis laijjer rejjioii. Indeed, 
some exti-emists deem aiiytiiing ''east of Suez" as 
"oriental." It can be noted, however, that tlie 
word "Orient'' as an antonym of "Occident" does 
not necessarily carry a rejjjional meaning and tlms 
may well apply in a cultural sense to all of Asia. 

Northeast Asia 

Tlie area normally included in tlie Far East 
breaks down into two clear-cut divisions: (1) 
Xortlieast Asia and (2) China. The Japanese 
islands and Korea together make up "Noilheast 
Asia," a term rapidly gaining favor politically if 
not geogi'upiiically. Manchuria and the eastern 
part of tlie Soviet Union fit into any logical loca- 
tional concept of this region, since they also lie 
north and east in Asia. But any term delineating 
such a heterogeneous combination of political en- 
tities and parts of political entities seizes no well- 
defined purpose other than for consideration of 
the phy.sical landscape. Henc«, for most effective 
applications of the term, "Northeast Asia" is lim- 
ited to Japan and Korea. One would tlierefore 
hardly envision it — encompassmg only two coun- 
tries — to be complementary to a more spacious 
Southeast Asia in any worldwide pattern of re- 
gional blocs. China itself makes up tlie second 
of the Far East subdivisions, and its politico- 
geographic complexity entitles it to special 

Greater China 

The vast area of Greater China in its traditional 
sense holds within it five politicogeographic re- 
gions tliat ha\e survived for centuries in one form 
or another and are still known today : Manchuria, 
Mongolia, Sinkiang, Tibet, and China Proper. 
In size each one would compare favorably with a 
group of "Western European countries. Their 
geographic limits, never sharp in themselves, have 
seldom coincided with the ever-changing limits of 
political control. Even in the face of ill-defined 
borders, these major subdivisions are widely ac- 
cepted to designate segments of the eastern Asia 

Mfinrhuria. Wedged between Soviet territory 
and the Korean peninsula, the Manchurian region 
is sometimes called Northeastern China. In the 
1930's the Japanese incursion into Manchuria 
changed the name on maps to Manchukuo (or

Manchoukuo) but without widespread or lasting 

Mongolia. Mongolia is an area of internal 
drainage suited only to nomadism, occupied by 
Mongols, lying north of the Great Wall. The wide 
expanse of Mongolia further subdivides geo- 
graphically into Outer and Inner Mongolia, the 
latter less arid and lying nearer China Proper 
than the former. 

Sinkiang. Sinkiang is made up of a series of 
large basins and broad tablelands loosely stretch- 
ing from the Kirgiz Steppe to tlie Kuiduu ilouii- 
tains. The western and central parts correspond 
to Chinese Turkestan (or Turkistan). 

Tibet. Known as the "roof of the world," Tibet 
is formed by a high plateau rimmed by still higher 
mountains that have over the centuries fostered 
the development of an isolated politicoreligious 
regime. The name "Tibet" has both physical and 
political meaning, though in the East the two do 
not necessarily coincide. 

China Proper. The name "China" itself long 
had two meanings. It could be construed as en- 
compassing the four outlying areas of Manchuria, 
Mongolia, Sinkiang, and Tibet — often called 
Greater China. Or it migiit exclude them and be 
coextensive witli tlie 18 old provinces south of the 
Great Wall. ' Tiiis area, known to geographers 
as China Proper, closely corresponds to the popu- 
lar conception of China as a land of teeming mil-

lions. Even here there is a well-established 
breakdown into North China and South China, 
with cultural o\ertones based on regional 

In contrast to the broad dimensions of China, 
the narrow limits of Japan furnish few regional 
concepts of any appreciable dimensions. "North- 
east Japan" and "Soutlieast Japan" are well recog- 
nized, each based on segments of the populous 
Pacific margin of the islands. Several other areas, 
some of them quite small, have likewise become 
associated with well-known names. Of primary 
importance are the names of the four major islands 
that comprise the country and also serve as re- 
gional names: Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu, and 
Shikoku. Honshu has nearly 60 percent of the 
area and apjn-oximately 75 percent of the popula- 
tion of Japan and, because of its relative impor- 
tance, frequently assumes the role of the 
archipelago's "mainland." The situation is some- 
what comparable to that of Great Britain in its 
relation to the British Isles. 

The geogi-aphic term "Inland Sea" {Seto Nai- 
kai) identifies the busy body of water separating 
Honshu from Shikoku and Kyushu. In the cen- 
ter of Honshu a zone of rugged volcanic momi- 
tains has assumed recognition as the Japanese 
Alps. Finally, almost on a miniature scale, are 
the Kanto, Nobi, and Kinki Plains along the 
southern Honshu coast, which are fertile pockets 
supporting the largest cities and densest popu- 

Department of State Regional Bureaus 

The crescent-shaped southern and eastern por- 
tion of Asia under discussion falls within the 
jurisdiction of two regional bureaus in the De- 
partment of State. In the Bureau of Near East- 
eni and South Asian Affairs (NEA) the Office 
of South Asian Affaii's (SOA)carries responsi- 
bility for an area closely corresponding to tlie 
concept of South Asia presented in this article. 

In tlie Bureau of Far Eastern Affaii-s (FE) tlic 
relationships l)etween regional responsil)ilities and 
tlie politicogeographic area known as the Far 
East are apparent but somewhat more intricate 
than in SOA. The Office of Soutlieast Asian Af- 
fairs (SEA) covere peninsular Southeast Asia 
except Malaya, Singapore, and British Borneo. 
These latter plus Indonesia and tlie Pliilippines, 

normally considered as part of the same region 
geographically, make up part of the extensive 
coverage of the Office of Southwest Pacific Affairs 
(SPA), which also includes almost all of Oceania. 
The Far East as we have visualized it in this 
article is divided between the Office of Chinese 
Affaii's (CA), which is responsible for affaire on 
the Commimist-controlled mainland, in free 
China, and in Hong Kong, and tlie Office of North- 
east Asian Affairs (NA), the latter encompassmg 
only Japan, the Ryukyus, and Korea. Thus, 
with but one noteworthy modification — that of 
msular southeast Asia — the Departmental bi-eak- 
down of regional offices within the regional bu- 
reaus does not deviate from accepted geograi>hic 

East Versus West 

Somewhere seaward from the outer eastern pe- 
ripheiy of the Asian Continent lies a shadowy line 
which in the American miiid divides East from 
"West. Inheriting much of our directional out- 
look from Europe, we nonnally regard any point 
in Asia as being East. To us, the Far East is 
the same as it is for, say, a Belgian or a Greek. 
Such a concept is not always plausible fi-om the 
standpoint of the distance involved. For exam- 
ple, from San Francisco to Tokyo the distance is 
nearly 20,000 miles if one measures in an easterly 
direction, but only .5,100 miles in a westerly 

Even though we think of Japan, the Philip- 
pines, and other parts of Asia as Ijeing in the East, 
a westbound crossing of the Pacific to Asia gives 
us a western outlook in relation to the ocean itself 
and its western borderlands. Pamdoxically. then, 
we may think of the Pacific's western margin as 
either West or East. Americans have come to 
associate certain areas with a western direction. 
For example, during World War II our experi- 
ences in the southwest Pacific turned our minds 
westward. Pearl Harbor and, later on, Tarawa, 
Guadalcanal, and Leyte loomed as trouble spots 
in the west. Likewise, we presently look into the 
setting sun toward our ba.stions of defense in the 
western Pacific, notwithstanding the fact that 
(hey lie along the margin of the Asian Continent 
itself. On the other liand, all conceptions of a 
"West" disappear with any fundamental analy- 
sis of the continent itself. The Koreans, the 
Japanese, the Filipinos, and others native to

Changing of Names 

In any pari of the world ideographic place 
i names inevitably undergo cliange witli tiie pass- 
ing of time. A new discoveiy, a new hero, an 
alteivd political outlook, or perliaps boredom witli 
an existing order may stimulate innovations in 
geographic terminology. In some parts of south- 
ern and eastern Asia since World War II impres- 
sive lists of names have been switched, usually 
from a P^uropean to an Asiatic tongue. The Indo- 
nesians, for example, elected to substitute place 
names of their own language for those conceived 
by the Dutch during colonial days. With the 
introduction of Djakarta we no longer think of 
Katavia, former name of the great metropolis on 
the Island of Java. Some changes in Indonesia 
have Ijeen less revolutionary, as Surabaja for Soer- 
baja. Nor have island names escaped the Indo- 
nesian drive for its own tenninologv'. One 
frequently sees Djaioa for Java, Sunmteiu for 
Sumutra, Kalimantan for Borneo, Svlawesi for 
Celebes, and so on. 

In India, too, place name clumges evidence the 
surge of a new national spirit. Indians have 
vacated Englisli names of provinces and cities in 
favor of their own. Zhiited Pravinces became 
Vttar Pradesh (fortunately without changing the

changes have been rather obvious, as Kdnpur for 
Caionpore and Bnndras for Benares. In otlier 
cases, city names that were already complex sound-

sounding in an Indian language. Two examples 
are TlniehirdppaUi for TnchinopoTy and Yiz-

Americans Reminded To Reregister 
Mining Concessions in Cuba 

Press release 18 dated January 15 

In connection with Cuban Law 617 issued by 
the Cuban Council of Ministere on October 27, 

1959, and published in the Offlcial Gazette of the 
Republic of Cuba October 30, 1959, American citi- 
zens are reminded of the deadline of February 27, 

1960, for the required reregistration of title of 
ownership of mining concessions in Cuba. Solici- 
tors and nominal beneficiaries of exploitations of 
minerals classified under the second and third sec- 
tions in the Decree Law of Bases of December 29, 
1868, in Cuba must also reregister their requests. 
These registrations are to be made with the Mine 
and Petroleum Department of the Cuban Ministry 
of Agriculture in Habana, Cuba. The Cuban law 
provides that, if registration is not made in accord- 
ance with the provisions of law, ownership and 
concession rights revert to the state. 

In effecting the reregistration, the law states 
grantees are obligated to declare, if appropriate, 
the name and otlier personal data of persons to 
whom the mines are leased. 

The Department understands that the reregis- 
tration taxes are as follows: 

Tending the constructii)n of the new capital city on 
the Potwar Plateau, Rawalpindi is serrinR as the admin- 
istrative center of Pakistan. Meanwhile, Karachi re- 
mains the legal capital.

(a) Payment of $100 for reregistration request 
for each mine. 

(b) Payment of an amiual tribute of $20 per 
hectare for mines which are not under adequate 
exploitation in the judgment of the Mine and Pe- 
trolemn Department of the Ministry of Agri- 

(c) Payment of a $10 annual tribute per hec- 
tare for mines which are being adequately 
exploited in the judgment of the Mine and Petro- 
leum Department. 

The law also provides that, aside from the an- 
nual tribute on the surface level, grantees are 
obligated to pay the state as a sliare 5 percent in 
cash or in its equal value as determined by tlie 
state on the calculated vahie of the minerals ex- 
tracted in tlieir concessions in accordance with 
the higliest average yearly quotation registered 
in the world market. If exported, the participa- 
tion of the state in tlie minerals or concentrates 
of minerals will be 25 percent of the value thereof. 

United States Protests 
Cuban Property Seizures 

Department Statement 

Press release 7 dated January 11 

Ambassador Philip AY. Bonsai, who retm-ned 
to Habana on Sunday [January 10], delivered 
today [Januaiy 11] to the Ministry of Foreign 
Relations a note,^ prepared in the Department of 
State during the Ambassador's period of con- 
sultation in Washington, protesting to the Gov- 
ernment of Cuba tlie numerous actions taken by 
officials of that Government which are coiisidered 
by the United States Government to be in denial 
of the basic rights of ownership of United States 

citizens in Cuba — rights pro\'ided under both 
Cuban law and generally a<^cepted international 

The actions in question involve principally the 
seizui'e and occupation of land and buildings of 
United States citizens without court orders and 
frequently without any written authorization 
whatever, the confiscation and removal of equip- 
ment, the seizure of cattle, the cutting and re- 
moval of timber, the plowing under of pastures, 
all without the consent of the American owners. 
In many cases no inventories were taken nor were 
any receipts proffered nor any indication afforded 
that payment was intended to be made. These 
acts have been carried out in the name of the 
National Agrarian Reform Institute. 

(A case was cited in which a marine dredge 
and a tugboat under United States registry valued 
at approximately half a million dollars were 
seized without any writt«n authorization, inven- 
tory, or receipt.) 

Several of these cases have been previously 
brought to the attention of the Government of 
Cuba by the Embassy of the United States but 
without result. Nor have the direct protests of 
the interested parties been fi'uitfvd. 

The United States Goverimient in its notes of 
June 11 - and October 12, 1959,^ to the Govern- 
ment of Cuba expressed its full support of 
soundly conceived programs for rural betterment, 
including land reform. This support has been 
demonstrated by United States assistance given 
such progi'ams in many countries. However, the 
United States Government at the same time ex- 
pressed its firm belief that their attainment is not 
furtliered by the failure of the Government of 
Cuba to recognize the legal rights of United 
States citizens who have made in\estments in 
Cuba in reliance upon the adherence of the Gov- 
ernment of Cuba to principles of equity and

Department of State Bulletin 


Operation of the Mutual Security Program, January 1-June 30, 1959 



To the Congress of the United States: 

Transmitted herewith is the Sixteenth Semi- 
annual Report on the operation of the Mutual Se- 
curity Program for the period ending Jmie 30, 
1959. The report was prepared under the direc- 
tion of the Coordinator for the Mutual Security 
Program by the Department of State, including 
the International Cooperation Administration, the 
Department of Defense, and the Development 
Loan Fund. 

The information set forth in the report demon- 
strates once again that today our national security 
is directly involved with nations and happenings 
throughout the world. 

The Mutual Security Program is flexibly de- 
signed to meet military threats where they occur 
and to make an effective contribution toward the 
cooperative effort of the nations of the free world 
to promote economic development. 

The economic problems of the newly developing 
nations of the world pose a challenge to our wis- 
dom and energy, and to our steadfastness of pur- 
pose, that is as demanding in its own way as the 
blunt threat of an armed attack. Our economic 
development and economic aid programs are de- 
signed to meet this challenge and its ever-chang- 
ing problems by selective and prudent use of the 
talents and resources available under the Mutual 
Security Program. 

' H. Doc. 299, 86th Cong., 2(J : reprinted here are 
chapters I through IV. Copies of the report may be ob- 
tained upon from the Office of Public Services, 
Department of State, Washington 25, D.C. 

The military, economic and technical assistance 
provided by the Mutual Security Program is essen- 
tial to the achievement of our foreign i)olicy ob- 
jectives. A strong Program, vigorously and 
intelligently implemented, will see the challenge 
tliat confronts us surmounted. But a weakening 
of the Program can only invite the destruction of 
our free-world society. 

This report affords the Congress a means of 
measuring what has been done by the United 
States and its friends to preserve a world where 
men and nations can live in freedom, without

The White House 
January H, 1960 


In the 14 years since the end of "World AVar II it 
has become entirely clear that the social, political, 
and economic structure of the world is undergoing 
a profound and sometimes violent change. Old 
empires have disappeared and new countries have 
risen in their place. Nearly all of them live with 
intense desires for rapid internal developments. 
Taking advantage of the hopes of the new coun- 
tries, as well as of the dislocations and exhaustion 
of the war, the Soviet Union extended its control 
in the immediate postwar years over formerly in- 
dependent countries, and continues its efforts to 
extend and increase its control everywhere else. 

The Mutual Security Program (MSP) is one of 

February I, I960 


the most important tools designed to cope with the 
external dangers to the security of the United 
States. In the broadest sense, it protects our se- 
curity by shielding the free world from external 
attack. At the same time behind the shield, it is 
helping to strengthen its political and economic 
stability. The danger we face externally is com- 
plex and continuing. At one end of the scale it 
begins with the skillfully manipulated military 
threat of the Soviet Union to the physical safety 
of the United States, its allies, and other nations 
of the free world. At the other end of the scale it 
ends with a more diffuse but no less real threat. 
This is the explosion that may result if people in 
the emergent countries are frustrated in their de- 
teimination to end the squalor and hunger and 
sickness in which they live. As these are totally 
different kinds of danger to our security, so must 
the methods employed in dealing with them be 

With the end of World War II, the nature of 
the threat to the United States and the West 
altered abruptly. From the clear cut test of war 
with the Axis Powers, the threat shifted to the 
shadowy area where the economic exhaustion of 
our Western allies might make them powerless 
victims of the Soviet Union, whose leaders were 
flushed with victory and intent on extending their 
power westward until stopped. This threat was 
countered by the "Marshall Plan" which was de- 
signed to restore vigor to the exliausted economies 
of Western Europe and thus encourage in the 
peoples and governments of Western Europe the 
will to protect their independence. The associated 
military threat posed by the existence of huge 
Soviet forces garrisoned in the Baltic States, 
Poland, East Germany, Austria, and Hungary 
was countered by the creation of the North Atlan- 
tic Treaty Organization (NATO). The United 
States provided much of the motive force in de- 
veloping the military forces of the NATO coun- 
tries, and in the earlier days of NATO provided 
the lion's share of the modern equipment used by 
NATO forces. The United States also furnished 
much of the military leadership in (he higher 
eclielons of NATO. 

The economic viability of Western Europe wiis 
restored, in part by the assistance furnished 
through the Marshall Plan, in part by the vigorous 
efforts of the western Europeans themselves, and 

in part by the cumulative effect of these and other 
factors on the revival of world trade. ^Mien it 
had accomplished its purpose (ahead of schedule), 
the Marshall Plan was terminated in 1951. The 
introduction of limited currency convertibility in 
late 1958 — which meant in fact that all western 
European currencies were "hard"— symbolized the 
return to full vigor of the European economy. 

While the favorable nature of the economic, 
political, and military developments in Europe 
permitted the termination of the Marshall Plan 
and the substantial scaling down of military aid 
in that area, the Soviet threat to Western Europe 
and the overall threat to the security of the United 
States continues; checked in Europe, it has broad- 
ened its scope and assumed less easily identifiable 

The Mutual Security Program is designed in 
part to cope with the military threat to the free 
world. The continuation of this threat will in 
all likelihood require the continued existence of 
its military arm, the Military Assistance Program. 
But even if the military threat were to disappear 
tomorrow, other problems of almost equal severity 
would continue to call on our ingenuity and our 
resources. These problems, often hard to identifj' 
at fii-st glance as threats to the United States, are 
in general centered around the aspirations of the 
new and underdeveloped countries of Africa, Asia, 
and Latin America. The drive to achieve these 
aspirations, sometimes called the revolution of 
rising expectations, has its internal political ex- 
pression in every country concerned. Here mil- 
lions on millions of people have seen that it is not 
ordained that they must live in perpetual squalor 
and illness, on the ragged edge of starvation, and 
their political leaders press the point home. In a 
variety of ways this revolution is moving forward 
by fits and starts, often uncertain of its direction, 
sometimes involved in the free world struggle 
against communism, sometimes not. The Ameri- 
can people sympathize with these aspirations, and 
wish the new and underdeveloped countries well 
in their .struggle to improve their lot. But sym- 
pathy aside, it is clearly in the interest of the 
Ignited States that we assist this movement so that 
the underdeveloped countries may take tiieir place 
as free, independent and prosperous members of 
the conununity of nations as quickly as possible 
and witli the least possible stress and turmoil. It 


Department of State Bulletin 

is equally apaiiist our interests that this forward 
moveineut be stifled or hindered. To lianiper tliis 
movement would bi-eeti only frustration and more 
explosive threats to political and economic 

One of the sparks that set off the revolution of 
nsinnr expectations early in the postwar period 
was the dramatic effect of the worldwide applica- 
tion of public health measures. Malaria was al- 
most wiped out in large areas of the world, thus 
reducing the death rate drastically. Other health 
measures applied for tlie first time on a large scale 
had equally startling effects, and stemming from 
them, at least in part, what constitutes a significant 
rise in the population figures is now under M-ay. 
Tlie explosion is taking place in the least devel- 
oped countries, those most possessed by the revo- 
lutionary urge to improve the physical lot of their 
people, and those least able to cope with the deluge 
of new mouths to feed. Thus, where creating^ 
viable modern society would have been a difficult 
job at best, it now becomes immensely more com- 
plicated and more urgent. Tlie rapid gi-owth of 
population may well prove to be one of the great- 
est obstacles to economic and social progress and 
the maintenance of political stability in many of 
the less developed areas of the world. 

These are some of the great problems affecting 
the security of the United States at both short and 
long range, with which the ilutual Security Pro- 
gram is designed to deal. The nature of the 
threats to the security of the United States and the 
stability of the free world have shifted during the 
10 years of life of the MSP. We must also expect 
that the nature of the problems we face in 1959 
will change in the years to come, and our response 
to the new face these problems present must also 
change accordingly. To meet these shiftmg prob- 
lems, the introduction of new tools and techniques 
—the International Development Association for 
example — is well underway. 

The United States can neglect or ignore only at 
its own ultimate peril the grave problems sketched 
in the precedmg paragraphs. It has been clearly 
recognized that they constitute a threat to our 
security; they have been and are being dealt with. 
"Wliat has been the price for coping with these 
problems through the Mutual Security Program? 
For fiscal year 1959 the Congress appropriated 

$3.4 billion for all MSP activities, of which $1.5 
I'llhon was for militaiy assistance. This figure of 
$3.1 billion w,is .74 percent of our Gross National 
Product, 4.;5 percent of the Federal budget, and 
equal to 8.4 percent of the military appropriations 
for the year. To help put this sum in belter per- 
spective, during fiscal year 1959 the Amei-Jcan peo- 
ple spent $17 billion on recreation, includijig $:{ 
bdlion on radio and television, $30.4 billion on the 
purchase and operation of automobiles, and $4.5 
billion on household furniture. 

The following pages contain the record of the 
problems with which the Mutual Security Pro- 
gram contended during fiscal year 1959 and the 
steps taken to solve these problems. Sometimes 
the response failed of its purpose; far more often, 
however, the hard work, ingenuity, and skill of 
the military and civilian authore and executors of 
MSP, using the tools with which they were 
equipped, achieved the results sought for. 



In November 1958 the President appointed a 
committee composed of distinguished private cit- 
izens to make an "independent, objective and non- 
partisan analysis of the militaiy assistance aspects 
of our Mutual Security Program . . ." The 
President indicated he was "particularly inter- 
ested in your committee's critical appraisal . 
of the relative emphasis which should be given to 
military and economic programs . . ." = 

The report prepared in response to the Presi- 
dent's insti-uctions is thoughtful, detailed, and 
comprehensive. It goes deeply into why the 
ilutual Security Program exists, how it operates, 
and the relationship between the two major i)ai-ts 
of the program, military aid, and economic aid. 
A close study of the report will be well repaid 
with a clear understanding of the major forces

at work in the world today, and how they affect 
American security. 

The report makes constructive criticisms of 
some aspects of MSP and offere recommendations 
for changes designed to cure the flaws it dis- 
cerned, in both military and economic aspects of 
the program. These recommendations are now 
under intensive study in the executive brancli of 
the Government, and certain of them have already 
been adopted. 

The following paragraphs briefly sketch out 
and summarize some of the major conclusions and 
recommendations of tlie Committee. 

In response to the President's request for a crit- 
ical appraisal of the relative emphasis which 
should be given to militai-y and economic pro- 
grams, the committee observed that it knew of no 
continuing fonnula that could satisfactorily de- 
tei-mine the relative emphasis, whether overall or 
in respect to any particular country. 

The Committee stated that from tlie standpoint 
of U.S. interests it saw no competitive relation- 
ship between military and economic assistance, 
and did not consider that the Military Assistance 
Program (MAP) is too great in relation to the 
economic aid and development program. 

In another recommendation of a general nature, 
the Committee urged a major, sustained effort to 
make available to tlie public all the facts about 
the program. In order to do so it recommended 

. . . Presidential instructions be issued to the appropri- 
ate agencies to institute vigorous measures to inform tlie 
American public adequately concerning MSP ; and . . . 
that unjustified attaclis upon the program be answered 
publicly, promptly and forcefully. . . . 

Military Assistance — Past Performance 

1. The Mutual Security Program has played a 
significant role in deterring a third world war, in 
keeping many nations free, in supporting our 
strategic system of alliances and overseas bases, 
and in providing hope for economic progress 
among the peoples of the less developed countries. 

2. The Military Assistance Program has pro- 
vided coliesion, strength, and credibility to our 
collective security arrangements. It . . . has been 
one of the principal instruments abroad support- 
ing our foreign policy objectives over this decade 
of clash with communism. 

3. It provided a large part of the weapons, 
material, and other support which made possible 
the rearmament of Europe. For the past decade, 
further Communist encroachment in this vital 
area has thereby been denied, and the North 
Atlantic Treaty Organization continues as an 
essential security bulwark of the free world. 

4. It achieved the strengthening of the nations 
around the periphery of the Sino-Soviet bloc. 

5. The Military Assistance Progi'am influenced 
a shift in current Communist tactics from direct 
military aggression to subversion, propaganda, 
and economic offensives. 

Military Assistance — Recommendations for the 

1. The Committee concluded that the necessary 
average level of expenditures that should be 
marked for military assistance over the next few 
years is not likely to be less, in general, than that 
required in the recent past. Continued appropria- 
tions at the present $1.5 or $1.6 billion level would 
result in a reduction in the program by one-third 
of the present ratio of deliveries. ^ The Committee 
pointed out that such a reduction would in fact 
amount to a fundamental change in U.S. national 
policy, implying a strategic retreat in the face of 
the Communist threat. 

2. $400 million should be made available, pri- 
marily for the NATO area, in addition to the $1.6 
billion requested for fiscal year 1960. ^ 

3. Military assistance should be planned and 
proposed on a long term basis — 3 and later 5 years. 

4. There should be a continuing authorization 
for the military assistance appropriation, in order 
to provide a sound legislative framework for 
multiyear planning and programing. 

5. The military assistance appropriation should 
be placed in the Department of Defense budget. 
(It has been carried heretofore as a major separate 
item in the budget of the Mutual Security Pro- 
gram, with Technical Cooperation, the Develop- 
ment Loan Fund, and so fortli.) 

' This portion of the Committee Report was written in 
early 1959, during fiscal year 1959, when appropriations 
were $1.5 billion. Appropriations for MAT for fiscal year 
196() were reduced by the Congress to $1.3 billion. [Foot- 
note in original.] 


Department of Sfafe Bulletin 

Economic Aid — Past Performance 

1. The substantiiil expenditures niado in recent 
yeai-s for economic assistance are justilied on 
grounds both of enlightened self-interest and of 
our moral resiwnsibility to oui"seIves to do what 
we can to help other people realize their legitimate 

2. Economic aid programs assist less developed 
nations in achieving economic progress and there- 
by promote an international climate which facili- 
tates the realization of our own national objectives 
and those of the free world. At the same time, 
these programs decrease the opportunities for 
Communist political and economic domination. 

3. Irrespective of the Communist threat, the 
economic development of these nations is a desir- 
able end in itself. The United States cannot 
prosper in isolation. The strength of our economy 
and the survival of our free institutions are de- 
pendent upon our being a part of a community of 
nations which is making acceptable economic and 
political progress. 

4. There is no implication (by the Committee) 
that we must continue all of our economic assist- 
ance programs indefinitely. 

5. The economic development of a country is 
primarily its own responsibility. Aid . . . should 
not ordinarily be furnished and cannot achieve 
real results unless the recipient nation has the 
desire and determination to help itself. 

6. Many forms of U.S. economic assistance must 
continue for as long as the Communist threat 
exists, and certainly until greater economic prog- 
ress has been made in underdeveloped nations. 

7. Management of our aid activities has become 
an extraordinarily difficult administrative under- 
taking. "While administration and coordination 
of these programs has improved in recent years, 
there is no question that some of the criticisms 
made in connection with economic aid programs 
are justified. However, the programs must be 
continued and better administered not emasculated 
or abandoned. 

Recommendations for Future Economic Aid 

1. Starting in fiscal year 1961 funds for devel- 
opment lending under the Mutual Security Pro- 
gram should be made available at the rate of $1 
billion a year. 

2. Continuing authorization and longer range 

funding should be provided for the Development 
Ix)an Fund (l)LF). (At i)resent authorization, 
i.e., the contiimed life of DLF, has been provided 
by the Congress on a 2-year basis. Appropriations 
for the lending capital of tlio Fund have Ixmn 
made annually. These procedures make forward 
plamiing by the United States and the borrowing 
country extremely difficult.) 

3. Contiiuiing authorization should be provided 
for technical assistance. (Congressional authori- 
zation, i.e., continued life, is given to the Tecluiical 
Cooperation Program on a year-to-year basis. 
The nature of tecluiical cooperation (described 
briefly in chapter 2) is such that projects can 
rarely be plamied and brought to completion in 1 
year. Sensible and prudent planning of effective 
projects thus becomes very difficult.) 

4. Available surplus agricultural commodities 
should be utilized more effectively, extensively, 
and flexibly than at present in support of mutual 
security objectives. 

5. A single agency should be responsible for 
administering the major related economic assist- 
ance programs and activities. 

Fiscal Aspects 

For fiscal year 1959 the Congress appropriated 
$3,448 billion for the Mutual Security Program. 
This figure included a supplemental appropriation 
of $150 million for the Development Loan Fund. 
The chart on p. 164 illustrates how ]\ISP funds 
were divided among major elements of the pro- 
gram. Table 1 illastrates tlie allocation of funds 
by region and type of assistance for fiscal year 

The sum appropriated by the Congress, in legis- 
lation finally approved on August 28, 1958, was 16 
percent less than that requested by the President. 
It amounted to % of 1 percent of our Gross Na- 
tional Product in 1958, and was slightly more 
than was spent by the American people for radio 
and television sets in 1958. 

With Mutual Security Program funds, aid was 
given to 60 countries during fiscal year 1959. The 
great variety of purposes it was designed to 
achieve are described in detail later in this report. 
$1,551 billion in military assistance was provided 
to 38 countries, and $807 million in defense sup-

port was obligated under programs in 12 coun- 
tries, all of which (witli one exception — Spain) 
are on the periphery of the Sino-Soviet bloc. 
$282 million was obligated for special assistance, 
and $166 million for the Technical Cooperation 
Programs, carried out in 49 countries and 9 terri- 
tories. The Congress appropriated $550 million 
for DLF operations during the year. Against 
available loan capital formal loan offers of $596 
million were made, and $522 million was obligated. 
In general it should be noted that a substantial 
proportion of the goods and services purchased or 
ordered with funds appropriated by the Congress 
are not actually delivered during the same year 
for which the funds are appropriated. This is 
due to time necessarily consumed in planning, and 
in ordering, manufacturing, and final delivery of 
the goods or services in question. Most, although 
not all, of the goods and services which were 
ordered — that is, for which funds were obli- 
gated — m fiscal year 1958 wei'e actually delivered 
in fiscal year 1959. Similarly those for which 
funds were obligated in fiscal year 1959 will be de- 
livered during fiscal year 1960. In general pay- 

ment for goods and services is made at the time of 
delivery . Therefore, most funds appropriated by 
the Congress for fiscal j'ear 1959 and obligated by 
the MSP during fiscal year 1959, are actually paid 
out as expenditures during fiscal year 1960, and in 
subsequent years. 


The operations of the MSP during fiscal year 
1959 were affected bj' a series of crises during the 
first half of the fiscal year, and relatively normal 
operating conditions during the second half. Be- 
tween July and December 1958 the Lebanon crisis 
occurred, the Iraq Government was o\er(hrown 
by revolution, a grave crisis developed in Jordan, 
a coup d'etat took place in Pakistan, and the Gov- 
ernment of Sudan fell. In addition the Berlin 
crisis was precipitated by the U.S.S.R. On the 
other side of the world, the Taiwan Strait crisis 
was precipitated by the Chinese Comnnniists. 
This list by no means exhausts the catalog of coun- 
tries in crisis and ferment during (he year; some, 
like Tibet, had no direct imjmct on ojionUions of

the MSP. Other countries, like Iran, while not 
inflamed by internal crisis, were subjected to the 
stresses and tensions created by revolutions in ad- 
joining countries. 

The second half of the year was relatively free 
of crises. MSP operations, after adjusting to the 
problems created in the first half of the year, went 
forward in as normal a fashion as is jiossible in 
such an immensely complicated operation. 

Administratively, strenuous efforts were made 
to increase efficiency, both by the Washington 
agencies involved and their representatives in the 
field. The Draper Committee report, described in 
more detail elsewhere in this report, pointed out 
that "there is no more difficult administrative 
undertaking in the United States Government 
than . . . the management of the various eco- 
nomic assistance programs . . ." Measurable 
progress was made in recruiting personnel well 
adapted to overseas life, and in training them 
after recruitment. Various internal steps de- 
signed to speed up operations were taken. For ex- 
ample, by November 30, 1958, ICA had approved 
programs representing 89 percent of its fiscal year 
1959 funds, compared with 26 percent a year 
earlier. By the end of December 1958, 38 percent 
of the fimds available to ICA for fiscal year 1959 
had been obligated, compared with 25 percent a 
year earlier. 

Similar efforts to improve the administrative 
aspects of the Military Aid Program were also 
being taken. 

Military Assistance Program (MAP) 

The Military Assistance Program, for wliich 
$1,515 billion was appropriatexl in fiscal year 
1959, is designed U) lielj) support tlie collective 
security effort of the fi-ee woild and strengthen 
the cxjminon defense. The MAP coofMsrates with 
47 countries in a great variety of ways. The ac- 
tual form which militai-y assistance takes varies 
from region to region and country to country, 
taking into account different capabilitias, degree 
of threat and strategic importance, political cli- 
mate, and economic strength. In general the cri- 
teria used in deciding whether to provide military 
assistance are the following: (1) the importance of 
the force being aided to the defense of the Unite<l 
States, or the protection against internal subver- 
sion of an area important to the security of the 
United States; the degree of inability of the re- 
cipient country (political, economic, or teclmical) 
to supply its needs from its own resources; and 
(2) the importance of an area be.cause of its stra- 
tegic position, and/or its strategic resources; its 
political support for U.S. objectives, or similar 
objectives not necessarily directly related to the 
comitries' militaiy strength, but vitally important 
to accomplishing broad U.S. security objectives. 

Tlie lion's share of the fiscal year 1959 MAP 
program went to the Far East ($695 million), 
and the Near East and South Asia ($415 million). 
Aid to Europe amounted to $345 million, to Latin 
America $55 million, and to Africa $12 million. 
These sums provided gims, aircraft, naval vessels.

Defense Support CDS) 

Defense support (administered by the ICA) is 
that economic assistance required, in addition to 
military assistance, in oi-der to permit a specific 
contribution to the common defense by another 
comitry where U.S. militaiy aid is helping to sup- 
port significant military forces. Defense support 
country programs are described in detail in the 
regional sections of this report. 

Defense support stems from specific military 
requirements, but its content is economic. The 
need for defense support is determined by (1) an 
analysis of the economic and financial capability 
of the country to meet the cost of the required 
military effort without incurring economic insta- 
bility, and (2) the country's willingness to take 
all reasonable measures needed to develop its own 
defense capacities, consistent with its political, 
economic, and manpower capacity to do so. 

During fiscal year 1959, $808 million was obli- 
gated for defense support — ^$540 million to the 
Far East, $218 million to the Near East and South 
Asia, and $50 million to one European country 

Development Loan Fund (DLF> 

The DLF, described in detail in a separate chap- 
ter of this report,* is a new and powerful tool 
designed to support and encourage long range eco- 
nomic development in the less developed coun- 
tries of the world. DLF's role is to provide 
capital to accelerate economic growth through 
direct loans and other fonns of credit. For fiscal 
year 1959, its first full year of operation, the Con- 
gress appropriated $550 million in capital. The 
DLF undertakes financing only when presented 
with specific development proposals, and only 
when financing is imavailable on reasonable terms 
from private investments, the International Bank 
for Reconsti-uction and Development (IBRD), 
the Export-Import Bank, or other free world 
sources. It can accept repayment in local cur- 
rencies, when warranted.

Technical Cooperation CTC> 

Technical cooperation, which is administered 
by the ICA, is notliing less than an effort to con- 
vey the skills and techniques and accumulated 
experience of our society to those of the less devel- 
oped countries which need them and want them. 
For the first time in history, through the U.S. 
Teclinical Cooperation programs, the U.N, Tech- 
nical Assistance Program (UNTA), the Colombo 
Plan, the Organization of American States 
(OAS), and some others, the proven skills and 
techniques of the more advanced nations are being 
directed — deliberately and effectively — to attack 
on a broad scale the economic and social problems 
of the less developed coimtries. $166 million was 
obligated for TC in 1959, of which $21.6 million 
was directed to the U.S. share in UNTA, and $1.2 
million to OAS. The balance was employed for 
bilateral technical cooperation. 

Teclmical cooperation activities are generally 
organized in the form of jointly agreed projects, 
and the foreign government usually bears the 
greater share of the cost of the project. The TC 
program complements special assistance: defense 
support, and loans from the World Bank and 
DLF. For example, DLF and World Bank loans 
frequently have resulted from preliminary eco- 
nomic and technical feasibility studies, undertaken 
under the Teclmical Cooperation Program. One 
of the best examples of such complementary ef- 
fort is the Lebanon Litani Basin development 
program. This development program is now 
being carried out with an IBRD loan, after its 
feasibility had been demonstrated by an American 
survey group provided under the Technical Co- 
operation Program. Teclmical cooperation proj- 
ects have assisted in the establisliment of 
productivity centers, the drafting of investment 
laws, and so forth. The need for different types 
of projects and the feasibility of completing them 
varies greatly from country to countiy. 

Special Assistance 

The Special Assistance Program, for which $282 
million was obligated in fiscal year 1959 is eco- 
nomic aiei necessary to achieve political, economic, 
himianitarian or other objectives of the United 
States in any counti-y where the United States is 
not providing military assistance in support of 
significant military forces, and where needs for 

Department of State Bulletin 

such assistance cannot appi-opriately or fully 
be jn-ovided under technical cooperation or from 
the DLF. Special assistance, wliich is adminis- 
tered by the ICA, is also the source of funds for 
certain other programs (such as malaiua eradica- 
tion) which serve important U.S. interests and 
which are not appropriate for financing under 
other categories of assistance. 

A common characteristic of most countries re- 
ceiving special assistance is their strategic loca- 
tion; many of them are accessible and vulnerable 
to bloc penetration. During fiscal year 1959, $102 
million was provided for special assistance in the 
Near East-South Asia area, $83 million in Africa, 
$21: million in Latin America, $25 million in Eu- 
rope, and $9 million in the Far East. In addition 
$25.6 million was provided for malaria eradica- 
tion, and $4.3 million for support to American 
scliools abroad. The special assistance progi'am is 
described in detail in a separate chapter later in 
this report^ 

Section 517 of the Mutual Security Act 

The Mutual Security Act of 1958 added Section 
517 to the Act of 1954, as amended. That section 
became operative during fiscal year 1959. It sets 
up certain specific planning requirements as pre- 
requisites to agreements or grants, constituting 
obligations of the U.S. in excess of $100,000, for 
defense support, special assistance, and certain 
other fonns of economic assistance. The principal 
purpose of this section of the Act is to insure that 
necessary engineering, financial and other plan- 
ning has been completed in advance of the obliga- 
tion of U.S. funds for the final design or 
construction of a project. The procedures 
whereby this requirement is met, along with other 
related procedures followed in the administration 
of economic aid programs, are directed at avoid- 
ing the premature obligation of U.S. funds before 
there has been sufficient advance planning to as- 
sure that the assistance provided will effectively 
accomplish the purpose for wliich it is intended. 


Military assistance, like the several forms of 
economic aid which make up the balance of the 
Mutual Security Program, is an instrument of

U-S. foreign policy. All types of assistance pro- 
vided to our allies complement each other in pro- 
moting the security and progress of the free world. 
This dual objective is directly reflected in the 
categories of aid which contribute to allied mili- 
tary strength and those whose primary purpose is 
to foster economic stability and development of 
the non-Communist world. Although neither 
category can be considered more important than 
the other, it is clear that security is a prerequisite 
to progress. Only behind the shield of common 
defense can the nations of the free world pursue 
their goals of continued independence, economic 
growth, and a better life for all their peoples in a 
world at peace. 

That shield, the combined military strength of 
the United States and its free world partners, is 
in large measure the creation of the Military As- 
sistance Program. In less than a decade, this 
pioneer venture in peacetime multinational mili- 
tary cooperation, starting almost from scratch and 
with no precedents to guide its development, has 
been instrumental in the creation of a common 
defense. All around the perimeter of tlie Iron and 
Bamboo Curtains allied forces which the Military 
Assistance Program has helped to train and equip 
stand ready to repel Communist probes designed 
to test free world ability and will to resist. These 
allied troops around the globe are our first line to 
deter, and to contain, local engagements which 
could all too easily explode into the ultimate disas- 
ter of total war. 

Tlius there emerges clear proof of the vital con- 
tribution of the Military Assistance Program to 
the security and defense of the United States. The 
relationship between military assistance, and the 
availability of ovei"seas bases essential to effective 
deployment of our own advanced forces and mis- 
siles makes it even more strikingly apparent that 
national security is reinforced by collective secu- 
rity. Tlie degree to which we benefit from our 
participation in the common defense of the free 
world, is sharply revealed in the following state- 
ment by the Secretary of Defense : 

We intend through our Military Assistance Program to 
continue to build up the forces of our allies. These are 
the forces which in nian.y parts of the world would have to 
take the initial brunt of an aggressor's attack. Dollars 
spent wisely on them will increase our limited war, as 
well as our unlimited war capabilities, and save us nian.v 
dollars in our own expenditures. Our Joint Chiefs 
of Staff recently statetl, with complete unanimity, that 
they would not want one dollar added to our own defense 


exiH'iuiiture if that dnllar had lo come out of our Military 
Assistance Program. 

The effective response of the Cliinese \iitionalist 
forces to the attempted aggression in tlie Taiwan 
Strait during tlie late summer of 1958 was possiljle 
only because tlie will to resist was backed up l)y 
military might brought into being by equipment 
and training provided through the Military As- 
sistance Program. Had not such defensive 
strength been in existence at the time of attack, the 
outcome in the Taiwan Strait might have been 
\erv diiferent. The United States might well, in 
fulfilling its international obligations, have had 
no alternative to direct intervention, with the 
inevitable risk of spreading conllict. Those who 
(piestion the need for our support of such large 
forces on Taiwan and in other areas of the Far 
East shoidd find adequate answer in the lesson of 
the Quemoy crisis. That the crisis was success- 
fully weathered is largely attributable to the 
superior jierformance and high morale of allied 
forces in being — trained and equijijied ])y the 
Militaiy Assistance Program. 

The existence of NATO's integrated fighting 
forces is attriljutable in large part to the Milit^irv 
Assistance Program, and is one of its most sub- 
stantial accomplishments. It is also perha])s the 
single strcmgest bulwark against Conummist 
aggression because, the NATO forces constitute the 
shield which protects Western Europe — an area of 
more than 1 million square miles, 270 million peo- 
l)le, great i-esources, and a reservoir of some of the 
liighest technical, managerial, and cidtural skills 
of (he Morld. The strength of that .shield is very 
direcdy i-elated to tlie security of the TTnitecl States 
itself, and it iiiustbe maintained at all costs. 

'i'lic total e.xiiense of su|i|iorting the common 
defense efl'orts of oui' fi'ee woi'ld allies through the 
■Military .\ssistance Program is neither exorbitant 
iioi- an unduly onerous burilen on the 
economy. In the lii'st ])lace, in recent years niili 
t:irv assistance cxpenditui'i'S have .acciiinitcd Inr 
only sliglit ly over f> ])ercent of total I '.S. cxpeiidi- 
tnrc^ for major national secui-ily |ir()granis. Sec- 
ondly, tlie total spent foi' both military and 
econoiiiic .'lid ill the .Mutual Security I'rogram has 
accounted for less 1 1 la II Ti )>ei'i-ent of our total l'\'d- 
I'ral Budget in recent years, and annually has j-e])- 
resented less than 1 percent of our ( iross Nat ional 
I'l'odiicl. Heciinse our ]iarliiers in tlie coiiiiiion 
defense elfort have shared subslani iail v in its 

financing, our own national security has been aug- 
mented at a cost far less than that of an equivalent 
overall incre^vse in the strength of our own forces. 
Since the beginning of the collective security 
undertaking our allies jointly have expended from 
their own defense budgets almost seven times the 
total amount of our niilitaiy assistance. 

The tangible results of these exj^enditures, are 
reassuring although not a cause for complacency. 
Since 1950 active army forces of our allies have 
increased from ;i,Go6,000 to 4,900,000 better 
trained and better equipped men, ready in the 
event of war. Comljat ships assigned to the navies 
of the free world have more than doubled — from 
1,200 to 2,500; and aircraft availidjle for the com- 
mon defense have iiicreased from 17,000 to over 
30,000. Impressive as is this numerical index of 
allied accomplishments, equally important — 
though less easily measurable — are the intangible 
byproducts. Chief is the strengthened self-confi- 
dence which has sprung from a more adequate de- 
fense posture. Our paitners' determination to re- 
sist has become steadily firmer as they have 
acquired the ability to protect themselves against 
the threats and probing of potential aggressors. 
Knowing that they do not stand alone, but that 
the United States will collaborate with them, they 
have not faltered nor fallen back in times of crisis. 
Their stanchness warrants confidence in the fu- 
ture of the whole free world. 

To support the Military Assistance Program 
ade(iuately is therefore undeniably in the best in- 
terests of the United States; and to neglect it 
seriously jeopardizes those interests and our own 
national security. 'J1ie following aiudysis of the 
status of militai'y assistance funds c'learly reveals 
the inevitable outcome if neglect occurs. It is an 
outcome we can far less easily afford than we can

.\ltliougli the Military Assistance Program was 
initialed in fiscal year 1050. it was not until liscal 
years 1951 and 1952, tlie time of the Koivan crisis, 
that the United Slates i)egan lai-ge-scale su])jior(

ilie niiliiai-y cap.abilities of the United Stales. 
The military assistance a|)propriat ion for fiscal 


Department of Stale Bulletin 

year 1951 was $5,223 billion and for fiscal year 

1052 was $5.2()7 billion. Since tliosi' years the ap- 
propriations have been grailnally reclueed. How- 
ever, because of the long lead-time required in 
military procurement, the level of military assist- 
ance deliveries has remained relatively stable. 

For fiscal year 1959 the Congress appropriated 
$1,515 billion for military assistance. During (he 
course of the year an additional $15 million was 
provided for militaiy assistance purposes from 
the President's contingency fund. Receipts from 
the military sales program during tiscal year 1951) 
totaled $28 million. Thus additional or new 
funds in the amount of $1,558 billion were made 
available during fiscal year 1959. That sum, plus 
a total of $3,373 billion conmiitted but not ex- 
pended fi'om prior year appropriations, provided 
a total of $4,931 billion available for expenditure 
during fiscal year 1959. Expenditures during the 

year totaled $2,368 billion whicli left an unex- 
pended balance as of Juno 30, 1959, of $2.5153 

For fiscal year 1960 the Congress appropriated 
$1.3 billion for military assistance. This smaller 
appropriation will result in a major reduction in 
the value of deliveries of goods and services that 
can bo made in fiscal year 1900 and subsequent 
years. The reduced value of materiels and serv- 
ices that will be provided to recipient forces in 
fiscal year 1960 will result h\ a slackening in the 
rate of improvement of the overall capability of 
the allied forces through postponement of 
planned modernization, curtailment of essential 
training schedules, limitation of forward plan- 
ning, and in general lowering of morale. Mili- 
tarily, a reduced military assistance program in- 
creases the responsibility that must be carried by 
U. S. forces.

Tenth Anniversary of Colombo Plan 

Statement hy Secretary Herter 

Press release 11 dated January 13 

On behalf of the U.S. Government I wish to 
pay tribute to the imaginative genius of those 
Conmionwealth ministers who, on January 14, 
1950, conceived of tlie idea of a friendly inter- 
national association which was destined to de- 
velop into the widely esteemed institution now 
known as the Colombo Plan. 

The Colombo Plan is esteemed because its es- 
sence is a noble objective. It stimulates through 
friendly consultation more rapid economic de- 
velopment of the countries of south and south- 
east Asia, countries which are strviggling to free 
themselves from the ageless burden of poverty. 
The United States, having undertaken numerous 
programs of economic cooperation tlirough bilat- 
eral arrangements with countries of this area, was 
pleased to join this association of free countries 
shortly after its inception. Although the mem- 
bers extend or receive aid through bilateral ar- 
rangements, the intimate multilateral discussions 
among friends within the Colombo Plan system 
are undoubtedly of great value to all concerned. 
They have constituted a stimulating force and 
have made possible more efficient and effective 
fulfillment of objectives on the part of both aid- 
giving and aid-receiving nations. 

If there is a key to the success of the Colombo 
Plan, I believe it may lie in the informal friendly 
consultative nature of its procedures. The Co- 
lombo Plan is not rigid; it does not bind mem- 
bers to any particular course; it is not an oper- 
ating agency. It does bring friends closer in 
their cooperative efforts. It is an association of 
friendly countries and is most useful toward 
meeting the economic needs and national desires 
of the members. It has in fact become a symbol 
of the economic aspirations of hundreds of mil- 
lions of people. My Government is proud to be a 

member of the Colombo Plan Consultative Com- 
mittee. It is gratified that through unanimous 
consent the life of this organization has recently 
been extended. It wishes for the Colombo Plan 
continued success in its great mission.

cussed the international situation. The President 
told the Prime Minister of the profound impres- 
sion made upon him during his recent trip to 
South Asia, the Near East, Africa and Europe ' 
by the overwhelming desire throughout these 

areas for early realization of the goals of the 
United Nations, international peace, respect for 
human rights, and a better life. In discussing the 
international situation, the President stated his 
determination to exert every effort at the impend- 
ing Summit meeting^ to achieve meaningful 
progress toward these goals. The Prime Minister 
expressed full agreement and support for the 
President's detennination. 

In this connection, the President and the Prime 
Minister agreed that disarmament, with the essen- 
tial guarantees of inspection and verification, is a 
problem of urgent and central importance to all 
nations, whose resolution would contribute greatly 
to reducing the burden of armaments and the risk 
of war. They expressed the further hope that 
early agreement can be reached on an adequately 
safeguarded program for the discontinuance of 
nuclear weapons tests. They concluded that the 
world is entering a period affording important op- 
portunities which they have every intention of ex- 
ploring most seriously, but only on the basis of 
tested performance not merely promises. Both 
leaders recogiiized that all of man's intellect, Avis- 
dom and imagination must be brought into full 
play to achieve a world at peace imder justice and 
freedom. They expressed the conviction that, dur- 
ing this period and particularly until all nations 
abide faithfully by the purposes and principles of 
the U.N. and forego the resort to force, it is essen- 
tial for free nations to maintain by every means 
their resolution, their unity and their strength. 


The President and the Prime Minister consid- 
ered the security relationship between the United 
States and Japan in the light of their evaluation

of the current international situation and declared 
that this close relationship is essential to the 
achievement of peace m justice and freedom. 
They are convinced that the partnership and co- 
operation between their two nations is strength- 
ened by the new treaty which has been drawn up 
on the basis of the principles of equal sovereignty 
and mutual cooperation that characterize the pres- 
ent relationship between the two coimtries. Both 
leaders look forward to the ratification of the 
treaty and to the celebration of this j^ear of the 
centennial of Japan's first diplomatic mission to 
the United States as further demonstrations of the 
strength and continuity of Japanese-American 

In reviewing relations between Japan and the 
United States since their last meeting in June of 
1957, " the President and the Prime Mmister ex- 
pressed particular gratification at the success of 
efforts since that time to develop the new era in re- 
lations between the two coimtries, based on com- 
mon interest, mutual trust, and the principles of 

Both the President and the Prime Minister 
looked ahead to continued close cooperation be- 
tween the two countries within the framework of 
the new Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Se- 
curity. They are convinced that the treaty will 
materially strengthen peace and security in the 
Far East and advance the cause of peace and free- 
dom throughout the world. They are convinced 
also that the treaty will foster an atmosphere of 
mutual confidence. In this connection, the Prime 
Minister discussed with the President the question 
of prior consultation under the new treaty. The 
President assured him that the United States Gov- 
ernment has no intention of acting in a manner 
contrary to the wishes of the Japanese Govern- 
ment with respect to the matters involving prior 
consultation mider the treaty. 

The President and the Prime Minister also dis- 
cussed the situation in Asia. They reaffirmed 
their belief that they should maintain close con- 
tact and consultation with relation fo future de- 
velopments in tliis area. They agreed that Japan's 
increasing jiarticipation in international discus- 
sion of the problems of Asia will be in the interest 
of the free world. 

a Ibid., July 8, 1957, p. .'51. 


The President and the Prime Minister agreed 
that the expansion of trade among free nations, 
the economic progress and elevation of living 
standards in less developed countries are of para- 
mount importance, and will contribute to stability 
and progress so essential to the achievement of 
peace in the world. 

The President and the Prime Minister ex- 
changed views on the European economic and 
trade commimities and on the role that can be 
played by the industrialized Free World countries 
in the economic development of the less devel- 
oped areas. Both leaders called particular at- 
tention to the urgent desire of peoples in the less 
developed areas of the world for the economic 
advancement without which they cannot preserve 
their freedom. They stressed the role which in- 
creasingly must be played by the industrialized 
nations of the free world in assisting the progress 
of the less developed areas. The President par- 
ticularly referred to the increasing role the 
Japanese people are playing in the economic 
development of free Asia. 

In considering economic relations between the 
United States and Japan, the President and the 
Prime Minister recognized that trade between 
their two nations is of great benefit to both coun- 
tries, noting that the United States is the largest 
purchaser of Japanese exports, and Japan is the 
second largest buyer of American goods. Tliey 
exjDressed gratification at the growth of mutually 
profitable trade between the two countries. They 
reaffirmed tlieir conviction that the continued and 
orderly expansion of world trade, through the 
avoidance of arbitrary and new unnecessary trade 
restrictions, and through active measures to re- 
move existing obstacles, is essential to the well- 
being and progress of both comitries. 

The Prime Minister stressed the importance of 
the United States and Japan consulting on a con- 
tinuing basis with regard to economic matters of 
mutual interest. The President expressed full 
agreement to this view. 


The President expressed his particular gratifi- 
cation that the Prime Minister could come to 
Washington on this occasion so important in 
United States-Japanese relations. The Prime

Minister expressed his appreciation for the op- 
portunity to meet again with the President.

that their talks will contribute to the continued 
strengthening of the United States-Japanese 


Mr. Prime Minister, it is my honor and privi- 
lege to welcome you again to our Nation's capital 
on the occasion of this visit. 

I do not need to tell you that you are always 
welcome in our country as the representative of a 
great people and as a true and loyal friend of the 
United States. But I believe that this occasion is 
a particularly historic and significant one. At a 
time in histoiy when the relations between nations 
are very complex and sometimes difficult, we are 
reminded by this visit, and the reason for it, of the 
really exciting record of achievement in good re- 
lations between the United States and your 

On Tuesday you and Secretary Herter will sign 
a new treaty of mutual cooperation and security be- 
tween the United States and Japan. This treaty 
will mark the culmination of great progress in 
relations between our countries in the 2 years 
since you last visited this capital. And we know, 
too, that it will mark the opening of a new era of 
even greater cooperation and mutual progress to- 
gether. I think it is only appropriate at this time 
to pay tribute to the leadership in your country 
and in ours which has made this record of prog- 
ress possible. The leaders of our two countries 
have recognized that we have true identity of in- 
terests in a divided world. And I can say that 
millions of Americans respect and honor you for 
the courageous leadership that you have given for 
the cause of peace and freedom for your people 
and for all the world. 

May I say that I am sure that, in your much too 
brief time here in our Nation's capital, the meet- 
ings you will have witli our President, with the 
Secretary of State, will bring even closer ties of 
cooperation and friendship for the years to come.

White House press release dated January 19 

President Eisenhower 

Mr. Prime Minister, ^Slr. Foreign Minister, and 
distinguished guests: It is a very great personal 
honor to welcome here in Washington the Prime 
Minister of Japan and his associates in govern- 
ment. They are here to sign, with us, a treaty of 
mutual cooperation and security. 

This year is the centennial of an occasion very 
similar to this one. A predecessor of mine, 100 
years ago, welcomed to this city the first Japanese 
diplomatic mission to the United States — indeed, 
the first diplomatic mission that in modern times 
the Japanese had sent abroad. 

During those hundred years tremendous 
changes have taken place. In our teclmology, in 
science, the changes have been such as to be revolu- 
tionary. And in the thinking of our two peoples 
there has been likewise a great cliange. We have 
come to the realization that we were not, each of 
us, truly independent of ourselves and of others 
but that there is among the nations — certainly the 
nations of the free world— a great and growing 

In 18(j0 Japan was just emerging from an isola- 
tion centuries old and almost complete in its char- 
acter. The United States was living in an isola- 
tion of a different kind. We were so protected by 

February 8, I960 


two vast ocean areas that we had no real interest 
in the rest of the world and certainly felt our- 
selves to be immune from the quarrels and strug- 
gles and problems and even the privations that 
others experienced. 

We have come a long way from that time. In 
1960 our two countries represented here today are 
leadere in an effort to bring the free nations of the 
world into a closer cooperation tlirough which 
they may achieve a better security for themselves 
and for realizing for all people the peace in free- 
dom that they seek. The signing of this treaty this 
afternoon will, all of us hope, mark one significant 
step in progress toward that goal. 

I am liopeful that all of you present, after we 
have had our coffee in the Blue Eoom, will be 
guests at that signing, which will take place in 
the East Eoom iinmediately after we leave the 
Blue Room. 

It has been a particular delight for me to have 
Mr. Kishi, an old friend of mine, here represent- 
ing his country this morning. We had a chance, 
because of this visit, to remark upon the tremen- 
dous changes, the tremendous progress that has 
been made in the last 2 years in the relations be- 
tween our two countries. We agreed that there 
is ground for great confidence that these relations 
will be sound and will grow ever stronger. 

Now, of couree, for both of us it would liave been 
a little bit more enjoyable and possibly even more 
profitable to have had these conversations on the 
golf course. But in spite of the uncooperative 
character of the season, we did have these talks, 
and both of us agreed that they have been not only 
interesting but fruitful. 

And it is in that belief and conviction that I 
propose a toast to the monarch whose able Prime 
Minister is our honored guest today. 

Gentlemen and Madam, will you please join me 
in raising our glasses to His Majesty, the Emperor 
of Japan. 

Prime Minister Kishi 

tJnofDclal translation 

Mr. President, Mr. Speaker, and other honorable 
guests : Today I and my associates have the privi- 
lege of discussing ])olitical nfTairs with the Presi- 
dent, for which I offer thanks from the bottom of 
my heart. Further, the President's generous toast 

has touched me deeply, for which I am also 

In the 2I-/2 yeai-s which have passed since I first 
met with the President to discuss matters of 
mutual concern and mutual cooperation we have 
seen gi-eat progress toward achieving a position of 
equality and mutual trust. That we liave done so 
is a blessing for the peoples of both our countries. 
Moreover it also contributes in a great degree to- 
ward the achievement of that jieace in the world 
which all peoples wish for. 

We all know that the President works con- 
stantly, with all of his energies, toward achieving 
peace in the world, with justice and freedom. Not 
only we in Japan but the peoples of the entire 
world are well aware of this, and we all praise 
you for your activities, Mr. President. We pray 
for your success in your purposes. 

As the President has already explained, my 
purpose in coming to the United States at this 
time is to sign the new treaty of mutual coopera- 
tion and security between Japan and the United 
States. But this year, as the President has also 
indicated, marks the first — the end of the first 
centui-y since the first amicable diplomatic contact 
between our two countries. 

Tliroughout that hundred years, never, with the 
exception of a brief few, do I believe that we have 
had relations of anything less than a mutually 
profitable nature. I hope that in the coming 
hinidred years we will achieve even more progress 
toward a new relationship based on ti'ust and 

I think that what we are doing today is signifi- 
cant for both tlie peace of the world and for the 
prosperity of the peoples of the world. I hope 
that our friendship continues in this way through 
tlie next century, without even a few years such 
as those wliich blotted our relations in the past. 

I hope that tlie work we do liere today will gain 
for us more than the hundred years of peaceful 
and cooperative relations that my prcdecessore 
gained. I know that wo will continue to work 
hard to achieve this. 

In reply to the remai-ks of the President I would 
like to tliank him from the bottom of my heart. 
I would like to toast the healtli of tlie President 
and pray that he may continue to work so ener- 
getically for tlie peace of the world and for the 
prosperity of all of the American people. 

Thank you. 


Department of State Bulletin 


President Eisenhower 

White House prcsB release dated January 19 

The siixninjx toilay of the treaty of nmtual coop- 
oration and security between Japan and the 
United States is truly a liistorical occasion at 
which I am lionored to be piTsent. Tliis treaty 
re]M-esents the fullilhnent of tlie poal set by Prime 
Minister Kislii and myself in June of 1957 to 
establish an indestructible partnership between 
our two countries in which our relations would be 
based on complete equality and mutual under- 
standinc:. The treaty likewise reflects the close- 
ness and breadth of our relations in the political 
and economic as well as security fields. 

It is equally fitting that the treaty of mutual 
cooperation and security should be signed in the 
hundredth year after the first treaty between our 
two countries came into eilect. On May 22, 1860, 
the first Jajianese delegation to the United States 
exchanged ratifications of the treaty of amity and 
commerce between our two countries. The subse- 
quent hundred yeai-s have brought unMievable 
progress and increasing prosperity to both our 
countries. It is my fervent hope that the new 
treaty signed today will usher in a second hundred 
years of prosperity and the peace in freedom 
which the peoples of our countries and of all coun- 
tries so earnestlv desire. 

Secretary Herter 

Press release 24 dated January 19 

It is a great honor and privilege for me to repre- 
sent the ITnited States as the principal signatory 
of this new treaty of mutual cooperation and 
security with Japan. The significance of this 
occasion for both our countries is demonstrated 
by the i)resence of the highest officials of both 
Govei-imients, the President of the United States 
and the Prime Minister of Japan, as well as 
delegations from the Legislatures of both nations. 

I am confident that the treaty we are signing 
today will establish, in the political, economic, 
and security fields, the basis for close cooperation 
to our mutual benefit for many years to come. It 
will also serve as notice of our solidarity to those 
who would attack or subvert the freedom which 
is our most precious possession. 

UnoOlclal tranglatloa 

For Japan and the United States tiiis is a 
truly significant and historic occasion. The now 
treaty of mutual cooperation and security which 
we are about to sign constitutes the basic struc- 
ture of partnership between our countries and a 
basis for elTective cooperation, not only in tlie field 
of security but also in the broader political and 
economic fields. The consummation of this treaty 
in the centennial year of our diplomatic and com- 
mercial relations is indeed a happy augui-y for 
the future. 

Ilencefortli our common efforts should bo de- 
voted to making our partnership a living and 
dynamic instrument for peace under justice and 
freedom and for human progress throughout the 
world. I am sure that we are making a most aus- 
picious start into the second century of Japanese- 
American relations. 

Foreign Minister Fujiyama 

Unofficial translation 

This is truly an auspicious event. It will go 
down in history, I am sure, as a great and im- 
portant milestone in the full century of relations 
between Japan and the United States. The 
treaty we have signed brings us together in closer 
association than any pact ever concluded between 
our two countries. 

I am glad and proud of the part I have per- 
sonally had in the making of this treaty. As the 
chief negotiator for Japan, I know what this 
treaty is and what it is for. It is an open com- 
pact for all the world to see as a treaty pledging 
our coimtries to serve as partners in the cause of 
a secure peace under justice and freedom. It 
reflects the sentiments and the iispirations of both 
our peoples. 

On this occasion I should express my highest 
respects and appreciation to the representatives 
of the United States for the great undei-standing 
and zeal shown by them in working closely with 
us to make a treaty of which lx>th our countries 
may bo truly proud. I address these sentiments 
particularly to the late Secretary Dulles, with 
whose understanding the negotiations were initi- 
ated, to Secretary llerter, who took a pereonal 
hand in leading the negotiations for his Govern- 
ment to this happy consummation, and to Ambas- 

February 8, 7960 


sador [Douglas] MacArthur [II], who showed a 
deep appreciation of Japan's hopes and aspira- 
tions throughout the negotiations. 

This is a day of fulfillment. But, at the same 
time, this is only the beginning of our real task — 
to breathe life into this treaty. Dedicated as we 
both are to the spirit of partnership, peace, and 
progress, I am confident that we shall succeed in 
our endeavor. 


Mr. Prime INIinister, we have come to the end 
of a friendly and fruitful visit. We have had an 
opportunity to renew old friendships and to dis- 
cuss many matters of common concern. You are 
leavuig us to visit our mutual friend and our good 
and close neighbor, Canada, where I know a warm 
reception awaits you. 

Your visit to Washington and the treaty of 
mutual cooperation and security we have signed 
during this visit are an auspicious start to the cele- 
bration this year of the 100th anniversary of the 
first visit to Washington by plenipotentiaries 
representing Japan. We will work closely with 
you to symbolize by this anniversary celebration 
our common dedication to the ideals that miite 
free peoples everywhere. 

I hope you leave us, as we leave you, with the 
conviction that we are in closer agreement than 
ever in our aspirations for peace and security and 
in the ways and means that must be employed by 
the community of free nations to achieve these 
aspirations. You should also know that you are 
always welcome to our shores. 

Goodby and Godspeed.

Agreed Minute to the Treaty of Mutual Cooperation 
and Security 

Japanese Plenipotentiary : 

While the question of the status of the Islands admin- 
istered by the United States under Article 3 of the Treaty 
of Peace with Japan' has not been made a subject of 
discussion in the course of treaty negotiations, I would 
like to emphasize the strong concern of the Government 
and people of Japan for the safety of the people of these 
islands since Japan possesses residual sovereignty over 
these islands. If an armed attack occurs or is threatened 
against these islands, the two countries will of course con- 
sult together closely under Article IV of the Treaty of 
Mutual Cooperation and Security. In the event of an 
armed attack, it is the intention of the Government of 
Japan to explore with the United States measures which 
it might be able to take for the welfare of the islanders. 

United States Plenipotentiary : 

In the event of an armed attack against these islands, 
the United States Government will consult at once with 
the Government of Japan and intends to take the neces- 
sary measures for the defense of Uiese islands, and to do 
its utmost to secure the welfare of the islanders.
