STATEMENT It V TIM". DEPARTMENT OK STATE ON THE
SA FRANCISCO CONFERENCE
When the representatives of the United Nations meet in San
Francisco on April 2f. they will bring with them t he support of their
peoples, founded upon the belief that there must be drafted there a
Charter for a world organization with the power and the will to
maintain world peace and security.
As we go inlo that Conference, il is essential that we understand
exactly what is its purpose. For it will not be a peace conference.
11 will not deal with boundaries, or reparations, or questions concern
in;: the disarmament and control of the Axis countries. The confer
ence will not he concerned with the trial and punishment of war
The United Nations Conference will have one purpose, and only
one: To prepare the Charier of an international organization for
presentation to the proposed member nations for adoption. This is,
however, the basic task, the foundation stone for the structure of
international cooperation. In working toward this accomplishment,
the delegates must reach agreement upon the most effective ma
chinery for the peaceful settlement of disputes, and at the same time
how best to employ force to settle disputes, if force should prove
necessary They must decide upon such questions as the most ef
fective way of stimulating international economic, social and hu
manitarian cooperation, and the relationship of regional organiza
tions to the proposed general organization.
The Dumbarton Oaks Proposals will provide a good basis for this
discussion Nevertheless, it will be a difficult task. The Charter
which will emerge from this Conference will of necessity be the re
sult of compromise and adjustment. II may not meet in its entirety
the wishes of any one nation; rather, it will be a syntheses of the
wishes of all those nations concerned. But the real purpose will
have been accomplished if the San Francisco Conference creates a
framework for world organization thai can command the support of
the great majority of all those who believe in freedom, and one that
will be llexible enough, at the same time, to permit changes and im
provements in the light of future experience.
There have been doubts in the minds of some persons as to the
wisdom of establishing the world organization apart from the settle
ments that will follow victory in this present war. Mature judgment
should make us realize that these doubts are baseless. By first set
ting up Hie world organization .with its functions separate from the
peace .settlements, we shall make it possible for this international
machinery to deal as freely with threats to world peace that may
later arise from those settlements as with such threats from any
What will be accomplished at San Francisco and afterwards toward
organizing the world for a truly enduring peace will alfect deeply
the lives of every American citizen and the future security and hap
piness of every American home. Our success or failure in this work
will depend, in the last analysis, upon the intelligence and under
standing and the active support of the men and women who desire
above all else that we shall not have to fight another and more
terrible war and that peace shall prevail throughout the years.

Thirty good years, Mother"
That star represents twenty-five years of Bervlce, the bar an
other five. . . altogether, thirty years that Jim has been working on
the Southern Railway System.
"Thirty good years," Jim says.
Because in the years since 1915 he has seen his Southland lay
the foundations for a rich, full, abundant economy.
He has seen agriculture, industry, mining and commerce team
up with his own Southern Railway System to get things done.
And when war came, he was part of
the Southern team that broke all records
in moving men and materials swiftly and
surely on their way to the fighting fronts.
Jim's proud of his thirty years. So are
we. But Jim knows that even greater
accomplishments are still to come.
And we share his faith in a great
future for the postwar South ... for we
know that the next thirty years will be
good years, too.
