FROST ................................ PUBLISHER NEIL PARSE ........................................ EDITOR The Nations Gather The following editorial is reprinted from a recent issue of the Christian Science Mon- itor. In its modern, soaring headquarters above New York's East River, the United Nations has gathered this week to discuss some age- old problems. The problems of how man and man, nation and nation, can live peacefully and constructively and productively together. This year, as in previous years, the Gen- eral Assembly session begins with a few moments of silence as delegates stand and pray, or meditate, according to their wish. The philosophies and religions of UN delega- tions are diverse but it is difficult to believe that the bulk of them do not at some stage during these quiet moments reflect on man's quest for peace. The delegates represent governments, but the governments represent people And peo- ple want peace. The people of the industrialized West seek earnestly to enjoy, and spread, their pros- perity in peace. Throughout the great vast- ness of Asia and Africa, millions want peace, so that they can continue their primary task of blasting away at poverty and backward- ness. Western travelers returning from the Soviet Union constantly reiterate the genu- ine desire for peace of the Soviet people, who have suffered so dreadfully from war. Even the masses of Communist China, whose government is seen by many as a dangerous one to peace, can hardly welcome the added misery of war. For all its deficiencies, the UN is still one of the most practical instruments for keep- ing the peace desired by so many. Tensions may persist but better that nations should explode against each other in the blue and gold General Assembly chamber than in the clammy jungles of the Congo or the plains of central Europe. Apparently there is widespread support for this view. For nations of many leanings have co-operated to keep the UN alive, to rescue it from the abyss on which it teetered during the dark days of last year. Then, after the loss of Dag Hammerskjold, the Soviets threatened the UN with their troika plan. The international organization was deeply embroiled in military operations against Katanga and its turnabout leader, Moise Tshombe, and with a $10,000,000 a month drain on its bank balance for special operations for which the Communist bloc refused to help pay. The UN seemed in dan- ger of collapse. Many were the gloomy fore- casts and prophecies. But as Harland Cleveland, United States Assistant Secretary of State for International Organization Affairs, declared on the eve of the new session, those who predicted the UN could not survive Hammarskjold's pass-I ing have been proved wrong. The UN has I emerged stronger than it was a year ago[ because of its members' determination to l keep it alive. Despite the apparent revival of the troika plan, there is said to be something less than enthusiasm for it throughout the bulk of the UN membership. Meanwhile although the Congo remains a problem, the situation is more stable there than last year. And the purchase by member nations of UN bonds will alleviate the UN's financial crisis. Many problems still loom. This year's session could yet erupt in new, angry cold. war vituperation. Certainly there will be heated debates over olor and racial discrim- ination, which many believe burgeons lar- ger than commumsm as a world issue. With their increasing ascendancy at the UN, the African and Asian states will seek to bring moral--perhaps militant--pressure against the Verwoerds, Welenskys, and Salazars. But for all its failings and rumblings the UN stands, its shield against aggression a little battered and bent, but still high. Shiver a little when you think of a world without it Hodge . Podlle R/e ,u,. Chalk up another one in our big book of unexpected, inter- esting experiences .... We saw a-crowd of cars near a bowling alley . . . thought it might be something exciting like a television show going on inside . . decided to join the fun. We certainly didn't ex- pect to find ourselves specta- tors at a tournament of deaf bowlers! The sounds of the lanes were the same . . . the swish- ing roll of the ball . . . the crack as the ball hit the pins . . the clatter of the pinset- ting machine. The kibitzers were there, too . . . using sign language but unmistakably the same types that a hearing bowler has to bear with. There was the same jollity . . . the same wry faces when the ball didn't get the desired results . . the same self-congratula- tory look when it did. It was when the games end- ed and the pins stopped fall- ing that you noticed the dif- ference. Except for an occas- ional audible laugh, the place was quiet as all outdoors al-i though everyone there was in- volved in conversation . . with his hands. The language of the deaf has as many variations as the language of the hearing. The quiet and relaxed conversa- tionalist who motions smoothly and gracefully.., the excit- able one who talks up a storm with quick movements and lively facial expressions. From a souvenir program we learned this was the 21st annual tournament of the Pa- cific Coast Deaf Bowling Association... membership limited to deaf and hard of hearing ABC registered bowl- ers. Participants included members of the Mt. Diablo Club for the Deaf, Concord and Hayward, Calif.; the Sec- ramento Silents; the Montan- ann from Great Falls; the Seat- tle Deaf Printers. One of their objects is "To encourage and foster among its members and those interested in the Sport, the spirit of good fellowship." "Good fellowship" . . it was easy to believe. "Seldom have we seen a happier crowd or one that mixed as well. How the same people fare in the workaday world mingling with hearing people, I really don't know. I'd guess they do fairly well. I've always be- lieved that a person is handi- capped only if he thinks he is 0001A Thirty Years Ago From the Free Press September 30, 1932 Subject to approval of the court, the Jerue Funeral Home of Cheney has purchased the J.
