THE UNITED STATES AND THE UNITED NATIONS
THURSDAY, MAY 7, 1975
UNITED STATES SENATE,
Washington, D.C. The committee met, pursuant to notice, at 10 a.m., in room 4221, the Dirksen Senate Office Building, the Hon. John Sparkman [chairman] presiding
Present: Senators Sparkman, Clark, Case, Javits, and Percy.
The CHAIRMAN. Let the committee come to order, please.
We are meeting today to open a series of hearings on the United States and the United Nations. The purpose of these hearings is to put into perspective what our original hopes and aims were, how the U.N. has developed, and what our future policies and attitudes should be.
I think it is fair to predict that recent world developments will focus greater attention on the United Nations. The question is whether the U.N. will be a constructive force in ameliorating difficult situations, such as in the Middle East and Southeast Asia, or whether it will be a destructive force in pitting the developing and third world nations against the developed, mostly Western countries, thereby further increasing the polarization evident at the U.N.
To start us off, the committee has invited a distinguished panel of past officials whose involvement with the United Nations spans the time of the signing of the Charter at San Francisco in 1945 to the Nixon administration.
We have with us the Honorable Harold E. Stassen, the only living U.Ş. signatory of the United Nations Charter; our former colleague, both in the Senate and on this committee, Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, who represented the United States at the United Nations from 1953 to 1960; Justice Arthur J. Goldberg, who held that post from 1965 to 1968; and Ambassador Charles S. Yost, who followed in 1969 and served until 1971. These gentlemen need no further introduction, but before calling on them I would like to ask Senator Percy, whom I hold responsible for these hearings, and have asked to act as cochairman, to say a few words.
STATEMENT BY SENATOR PERCY
Senator PERCY. Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
I hope you are not implying I am responsible for everything that is said at the hearings. [Laughter.]
