After commenting upon I be his-
torlc and moral significance of the

I Yang summarized the various pro
visions of the charier. The six

cil: Hie Trusteeship Council, the
International Court of Justice and
the Secretariat. He spoke at some
length on the Security Council,
around which, he said, most of the
controversial questions centered
He also ' rf-usw and explained
Uie vat. ..., ..
Declaring his belief the
charter will work and that lu his
opinion il is superior to the League
of Nations Covenant of Woodrow
Wilson's time, the speaker enumer
ated several outstanding impres
sions he gained al the San Fran
cisco meeting, among Ihcin the
following: "There was decidedly
an effort by the five major nations
ttbe Big Fivel to present a united
front that argues well for the fu
ture of the world
"The influence of the Small
I'oweis was not 'small'.
" The universial desire lor peace
and security was keen and real and
made possible necessary compro
mises and accommodations in for
mulating the charter.
The charter Is the first lotei
national document ever drawn up
in the name of We, the Fcople
Fur the first time we had the
thought and respect for human
rights and fundamental rights of
individuals as well as of nations
put in an international document
"The emergence of woman as a
factor in world politics was en
couraging and prominence was
culture as a factor in world se
curity "
The speaker closed with the
thought What has the Church to I
contribute Can the charter sin i
ceed without the church and what j
is the task of the church now and I
in Hie future'.' Questions which he
answered partly as follows:
"II was due largely to the ef
forts of Christian churches that
the cause of peace is receiving r
serious consideration: breaking
down isolationism and contribut
ing to the spirit of world fellow
ship "Can the church now rest Not
entirely, because good and import
