FRIDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1961 THE OBSERVER PAGE 5 WASHINGTON BACKGROUND ammars By ~ORMA KRAUSE HERZFELD JUST ONE MONTH before he died in the African bush, UN Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjold presented to the 99 nations who have signed the UN Charter his report on the general character, authority and structure of the UN. "The Organization," he said, has now reached a state in its development where member nations may find it timely to clarify their views on the direction in which they would like to see the future work of the Organiza- I m ~ m tion d~velop." To help them make some important [] [] ~ [] choices, he analyzed two different concepts of the ~ [] ~ UN which have emerged since 1945. [] ~l Some members, he said, conceive of the UN [] iil}!::~i ~-~ as "a static conference machinery for resolving [] ~ ~i ~ii] conflicts of interest and ideologies with a view to I ~::~ iii~::~;~::i::}::i::i::i::i::i! iii~ peaceful coexistence, Titan the Charter, to be,| i iiiilR served hy a Secretariate which is to be regarded ~ ~l not as fully internationalized hut as representing I [] ~ within its ranks those very interests and ideo- ~j g ~ logics" - - L-ZvJn THIS IS THE SOVIET VIEW. It would replace the Secretary - oral, an executive able to act effectively, with a committee of three, each with a veto, representing the communists, the West and the neu- tral nations Such a UN would be completely unable to act and for all intents and purposes would be nonexistent The other conception of the UN, said Hammarskjold, is that of "a dynamic instrument of governments through which they, jointly and for the same purpose, should seek such reconciliation but through which they sholud also try to develop forms of executive action, un- dertaken on behalf of all members, and aiming at forestalling con- flicts and resolving them, once they have arisell, by appropriate dip- ons Priest-Doctor Gettin, Aid regard it as a failure of the world community, .through its member nations and in particular those most directly concerned, to cooperate in order, step by step, to make the Charter a living reality in practi- cal political action as it is already in law." WHEN THE trN WAS FOUNDED, he said, members were so pre- occupied with their principles, and international thinking at that time was so preoccupied with the conference pattern of organization, that little appeared in the Charter about the executive functions for carry- ing out decisions So in practice, said Hammarskjvld, the Assembly and Security Council have turned over decisions to the Secretary- General to be carried out. Thus the Secretary-General has become the major executive officer of the UN in all its political decisions, and, he said, the Secretariat can only carry out these delicate missions by remaining international and independent. Experience has shown, he continued, particularly in the work of furthering "self-determination, self-government and independence" for all peoples," that peaceful progress cannot be made within the framework of a conference-machinery concept "It is in the conflicts relating to the development toward full self-government and in- dependence that the Organ!zation has faced its most complicated tasks in the executive field, he pointed out significantly THUS, HAMMARSKJOLD WARNED all 99 nations that they ought to look at the UN Charter they signed and decide if they really meant it. And he told all the new weak nations which now hold the balance of power in th e UN that they above all need a strong UN S.HAR,NG OUR Of Druggists executiVegrowth, to protect their independence and help them achieve ALBUQUERQUE, New Mex.---- Certainly Hammarskjold was a martyr in the cause of world A young American priest-doctorI peace, but in a special way he was a martyr for the new countries, i fighting a one-man battle for his] He lost his life in a final attempt to end the civil war in the Congo.

Missionary bishops and their missionary co-workers rejoice that generous Catholics, especial- ly in the greater United States unite in PRAYER and SACRIFICE on MISSION SUNDAY, for the struggling missions at home and overseas. MISSION SUNDAY is one special day in the year to be TRULY CATHOLIC for "the Mission- ary Spirit and the Catholic Spirit are one and the same." Unity in prayer for the Universal Mis- sion of the Church gives unity and life to our membership in the Mystical Body of Christ--- the Church. To share our material possessions with the needier members of the Church is to practice Charity in its most admirable defini- tion. Mission Sunday Highlights: UNDERSTANDING the International Mission of the Church. From every pulpit throughout the dio. cese this Sunday the World mission program of the Church is set forth. Appreciation of the Mission Apostolate in over seven hundred mission areas of the world sets the stage for the next step. PRAYER for the Mission Church at home and overseas is the first consequence of understanding. Above all else the Vicar of Christ begs for prayer this Mission Sunday. SACRIFICE for the material needs of the Mission Church in the United States and across the world. The Mission Church cannot function with any real success without OUTSIDE HELP. Let's face itl Most of this material help must come from the rich- est country in the world, and from the most gener- ous people: the Catholics of the united States. Fulfill Meaning of Generosity Mission Sunday is a day to recognize the heroic work of some 130,000 Missionaries around the world, who gladly give everything for the Propagation of the Faith It is also a day to give evidenc of this recognition by generous Almsgiving. May this giving fulfill the meaning of this precious word: GENER- OSITYo Mission Sunday is a day to be remindful of tho words of the illustrious Pope Plus XII: "CHARITY FOR THE PROPAGATION OF THE FAITH SURPASSES EVERY OTHER CHAR- ITY IN THE CHURCH; AS HEAVEN SUR- PASSES EARTH, AND ETERNITY, TIME!" In gratitude for the treasure of your Faith . . o make a generous return on Mission Sunday. ,| | | ,| , The Society for the Propagation of the .
