But tbm is considerable agitation
for more drastic action, and the As
sembly may take it this year.
The quarrel ? between the Nether
lands and the Imb?inn Republic,
which has consumed ko much of the
Security CouncK'a time reeentlf^ will
pass in review before the Assembly,
but no definite action is expected as
the Security Council, for the time be
ing at least, appears to have the sit
uation well in hand.
The Anglo-Egyptian dispute, an
other recant Security Conmcil chest
nut, is likely to discuss forensic
sparks in the General Assembly, with
little definite result dtber than to
clarify some of the more complicated
aspects of the problem.
Another agenda item that is likely
to have a dubious resdlt is the advice
the Assembly gave lest -year to the
South African Government to accord
more egalitarian treatment to Indian
nationals residing in the South Afri
ca' Union. India has renewed its
complaints, asserting that the Smute
Government has given no hood to the
One of the longest and perhaps bit
terest debates of all can he expected
to come when the subject of the so
called Marshall Phut comes op.
Strictly sphaldng, the Marshal]
Plan is outside the UN's purview, al
though the United States has kept
UN officials informed regarding it
It is due to come up in the Assembly,
however, in connection with the re
port on the Economic Commission
for Europe, which was designed to
contribute to a program of self-help
such as .is being worked out in anti
cipation pf American aid. -
Russia is again raising its charge
that the UN is being by-passed in
the Marshall Plan, and the United
States can be expected to report, at
it has done before, that any chance
of effectively aiding Europe's recov
ery within the framework of the UN
was destroyed' by Moscow's tntran
Whether the Americas will show
the solidarity as. displayed at the re?
cent Rio conference is another ques
tion. No strict obedience to United
States' bidding, snch as that to which
observers have become accustomed
from the Slavic bloc, is expected.
Some Pan-American stales, such sis
Argentina ahd Ct$a, may go out of
their way to show their independ

may be exeeted to show a similar at

Behind aH of \he Assembly's de

realization that the United Nations
is at the cross roads.
Is it to follow in the path of the
defunct League of Nations, or will
it gradually become the virile world

the frsniers of the San Francisco en
