SPECIAL ORDER VACATED

OPPOSITION TO THE COMMUNIST CHINESE REGIME'S ADMISSION TO UNITED NATIONS

Mr. JAVITS. Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend my remarks.

The SPEAKER. Is there objection to the request of the gentleman from New York?

There was no objection.

Mr. JAVITS. Mr. Speaker, our country's unalterable opposition to the admission of the Communist Chinese regime to membership in the United Nations is well nigh universally the conviction of Americans. It would be dangerous for the other free peoples to think otherwise. The Communist Chinese re

gime is a convicted aggressor in Korea,

convicted by the United Nations itself, and continues to this day to proclaim

defiance to the U. N. peace efforts there. The Communist Chinese regime is also preventing the free will of the people of Indochina as to the form of their independence and of their future government to be expressed by aiding and abetting Communist aggression and subversion there. In addition, the Communist Chinese regime is guilty of terror and persecution of foreigners, and the holding of prisoners, military and civil, without disclosure, violating the civilized practices between nations. The Communist Chinese regime is also enslaving and terrorizing the Chinese people and not permitting them to exercise the right of self-determination. Our Government must use all its powers as a member of the U. N. and as the acknowledged leader of the free world against the admission of the Communist Chinese regime to the United Nations.

It would be hollow mockery to number the other peace-loving states or to asthe Communist Chinese regime among

sume that the Communist Chinese regime will in good faith accept the obligations contained in the present charter and be able and willing to carry out these obligations as called for by article 4 of chapter 2 of the charter of the United Nations.

I do not believe, however, that the way to keep the Communist Chinese regime out of the United Nations is to threaten to withdraw from U. N. membership or active participation if the Communist Chinese regime be admitted to the U. N. over our objection and possible veto.

This, too, we need neither threaten nor promise relying rather on the moral convictions of the other free peoples who are the overwhelming majority on the Security Council.

The Soviet Union has vetoed the admission of 14 nations to U. N. membership: Austria, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Jordan, Republic of Korea, Nepal, Portugal, Cambodia, Japan, Libya, Vietnam, Laos, and Ceylon.

Five of the Communist satellites have been denied membership for failure to

receive the necessary seven votes of the Security Council: Albania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Rumania, and Mongolian Peoples Republic.

The United States has resolutely refused any deals to trade membership of one group for the other as immoral.

I realize that the United Kingdom is rumored now to be favorable to Communist Chinese regime's admission to the U. N. As one devoted to free world cooperation and world leadership of our country I would appeal to the Government and people of Great Britain to respect in this instance the deep convictions of the Government and people of the United States that to admit the Communist Chinese regime to the U. N. would be immoral, gravely dangerous to the U. N.'s objectives, and an invitation to appeasement, and therefore, to world war III. I hope the British Government and people will now join us in keeping the Communist Chinese regime out of the U. N. The reasons against threat

ening to withdraw from the U. N. are:

First. We would be assuming a defeat in the U. N. we have no right to assume. We would be doubting that the moral convictions of the free world are equivalent to our own.

Second. We would be conceding in advance our willingness to break up the chosen instrument of the free world for world peace, in which the free world has had marked success, and which has in the overwhelming majority of cases, unless inhibited by Soviet vetoes, overwhelmingly repudiated the Communist world and its ideas.

Third. The physical location of the United Nations and the indissoluble legal bonds of membership both of which it is to our great interest to maintain dictate against an advance commitment to withdraw we may later deeply regret. An advance commitment which will have lost its force from having been uttered too soon and used as a threat thereby writing down an action that would be so epochal.

National unity in our opposition to the Communist Chinese regime's admission to the U. N., the national security and the national interest can all best be at

tained without the added threat of withdrawal from the U. N.

PERSONAL ANNOUNCEMENT

Mr. DORN of New York. Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent to address the

House for 1 minute.

The SPEAKER. Is there objection to the request of the gentleman from New York?

Mr. DORN of New York. Mr. Speaker, I was unavoidably absent during the vote today on the vocational rehabilitation bill, H. R. 9640. If I had been present I would have voted "yea." I was actually with the Secretary of the Navy asking him to award the contract for the CVA-62, a new carrier, to the New York Naval Shipyard.

SPECIAL ORDER GRANTED

Mrs. ROGERS of Massachusetts asked and was given permission to address the House for 20 minutes on Monday, following the legislative program of the day and special orders heretofore granted.

VETERANS' LEGISLATION

The SPEAKER pro tempore (Mr. HALLECK). Under previous order of the House, the gentlewoman from Massachusetts [Mrs. ROGERS] is recognized for 20 minutes.

Mrs. ROGERS of Massachusetts. Mr. Speaker, at a meeting of the Committee on Veterans' Affairs this morning, I was directed by unanimous consent to bring to your attention this letter written to Hon. LEO E. ALLEN, chairman of the Committee on Rules of the House:

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, COMMITTEE ON VETERANS' AFFAIRS, Washington, D. C., July 8, 1954.

Hon. LEO E. ALLEN,

Chairman, Committee on Rules,
House of Representatives,

Washington, D. C.

DEAR MR. CHAIRMAN: In a meeting of the Committee on Veterans' Affairs this morning I was directed by a unanimous vote to bring to your attention again the situation involving the bill H. R. 9020, which seeks to provide, as you know, an increase in the rates of compensation and pension available to veterans and their dependents.

Originally I wrote you on June 2 enclosing a copy of the bill and report and asking for a hearing before the Committee on Rules. Upon learning that this letter had not reached you, I drafted a second letter on June 7, again requesting that we be given an opportunity to appear before your committee in connection with the granting of the rule. To date I have not received any acknowledgment from either of these letters.

The bill, H. R. 9020, represents the careful consideration of the Subcommittee on Compensation and Pensions, headed by the Honorable EDMUND P. RADWAN, and the review of the subcommittee's actions by the full committee. Hearings were held on over 70 bills in this general field prior to the introduction and consideration of H. R. 9020. After careful consideration by the full committee, the measure was reported unanimously on May 28, 1954, and since that time I have been endeavoring with every means at my command to obtain floor consideration of this proposal. The time has now come when action of one sort or another is imperative. We have legislated in this Congress for the benefit of foreign countries and we have been most liberal. Just a few weeks ago we passed a bill authorizing well over $3 billion in this field. We have passed a farm bill-the Social Security Act has been amended with more liberal benefits-the taxpayers have been given needed relief. But in the field of veterans' affairs, one of the most important measures, if not the most important measure

in this Congress, is still prevented from being ROGERS], in an effort to try to have the considered by the House.

I am advised that all the members of the Rules Committee save yourself and one other have indicated their willingness to report a rule granting consideration of this bill, and if you will schedule a meeting on H. R. 9020, I am sure that prompt action will result.

It should be pointed out that appropriations for the Veterans' Administration have been decreasing steadily over the last few fiscal years, and that the current appropriation of $3,796,000,000 is the lowest since the fiscal year 1945. The current appropriation is nearly $400 million less than in the 1954 appropriation. The overall first-year cost of H. R. 9020 is set at $231 million and I believe you will agree with, in view of the number of individuals affected, that this is a most reasonable figure.

The author of the bill, the Honorable EDMUND P. RADWAN, has introduced House Resolution 612, calling for the consideration of the bill, H. R. 9020, and this action was taken only when he and other members of the Committee on Veterans' Affairs became dis

couraged at the progress we were making before your committee. They cannot understand the lack of consideration given this

measure.

The veterans of America have fought in numerous wars to see that the United States remained free. We owe much, if not all, of what we now enjoy to those who have participated in these wars. It is certainly a commentary on our times that we should have so much difficulty in obtaining a small increase in the rates of compensation for those who bore the brunt of battle and for their widows and children.

I am therefore appealing to you again that you permit this bill, H. R. 9020, to receive the immediate attention of your committee and that a rule be granted so that the House may have an opportunity at the earliest possible time-and preferably during the week of July 12-to vote on this vital measure. I am sure you will find that there will be few, if any, votes against the proposal.

Mr. SELDEN. Mr. Speaker, will the gentlewoman yield?

Mrs. ROGERS of Massachusetts. I yield.

Mr. SELDEN. Mr. Speaker, I commend the chairman of the Committee on Veterans' Affairs for her efforts to have the bill, H. R. 9020, brought before the House for consideration. This measure was reported unanimously by the Committee on Veterans' Affairs of which I am a member. I join with our chairman in urging the Committee on Rules to grant a rule for the consideration of H. R. 9020 without further delay. We all realize that early action on this bill is absolutely necessary if this measure is to be considered by both the House and Senate before adjournment.

Mrs. ROGERS of Massachusetts. The gentleman has been a very fine, cooperative member.

It is interesting, and it is the only committee I have ever known where the membership being divided equally between Republicans and Democrats does not consider matters coming before it in a partisan way; we act as a unit.

Mr. JOHNSON of Wisconsin. Mr. Speaker, will the gentlewoman yield?

Mrs. ROGERS of Massachusetts. I yield to the gentleman from Wisconsin, also a very cooperative member.

Mr. JOHNSON of Wisconsin. I wish to be associated with our chairman, the gentlewoman from Massachusetts [Mrs.

Rules Committee report and act on H. R. 9020 so that the House and Senate can have an opportunity to act on it before Congress adjourns.

I wish to state further that if the Committee on Rules does not act on it in sufficient time to let it be considered, then it will be the leadership of the House which will be responsible for its failure to pass.

May I also state that the Committee on Veterans' Affairs of which I am a member-by the way, the youngest member, I believe, on the committee-voted unanimously for the passage of this bill something over a month ago.

Mrs. ROGERS of Massachusetts. That is correct; and the two members from Wisconsin and Alabama have attended every session of the committee.

I would like to state again the cooperation the members of the committee have shown in their anxiety to be helpful.

Mr. Speaker, may I remind you that courage, bravery, and likewise suffering, are not confined to the veterans of any one State; the whole country has given and given and given, and suffered and suffered. We have had legislation, for instance, with the peanut people on one side and the candy bar people from my own State of Massachusetts on the other side; there was controversy in oil and other things. But in this there is unity. We owe it to all the people of the country that there be no division on party lines.

I see the gentleman from Alabama [Mr. ELLIOTT] sitting there. He has contributed a great deal during this and other sessions of Congress.

Mr. ROONEY. Mr. Speaker, will the gentlewoman yield?

Mrs. ROGERS of Massachusetts. I shall be very glad to yield.

Mr. ROONEY. Mr. Speaker, while I am not sure I can agree with the gentlewoman on the peanuts proposition, yet I do want to take this opportunity to congratulate her once again as chairman of the great Committee on Veterans' Affairs for her marvelous work on behalf of the veterans.

It

Mrs. ROGERS of Massachusetts. is the members of our committee to whom the veterans are indebted.

Mr. ROONEY. But it is under the inspired leadership of the gentlewoman from Massachusetts that the attention to which he is entitled has been given to the veteran.

Mrs. ROGERS of Massachusetts. The chairman is extremely grateful.

Mr. ELLIOTT. Mr. Speaker, will the gentlewoman yield? Mrs. ROGERS of Massachusetts. I shall be very happy to yield to the gentleman.

Mr. ELLIOTT. Having served for 3 years on the Committee on Veterans' Affairs, Mr. Speaker, let me say that I think there is nobody in this entire country who has done more or carried the cause of the veteran closer to his or her heart than has the gentlewoman from Massachusetts [Mrs. ROGERS].

I think her cause is just in this regard and I trust that the Committee on Rules will grant a rule at an early date.

If it does not and I get the opportunity to do so, I am going to sign the first discharge petition I have signed during this session of Congress, a petition which I trust will bring that bill before this House.

Mrs. ROGERS of Massachusetts. I doubt very much that it will be necessary to file a petition, but I feel very sure that the gentleman from New York [Mr. RADWAN], would secure the necessary number of names on his petition. The membership are not fighting for themselves, they are fighting to do some measure of justice and consideration to the veterans. This being so it is hard to understand why there should be this opposition.
