Trygve Lie's Report

Allen, Peter J.
October 1954
New Republic;10/4/54, Vol. 131 Issue 14, p19
This article presents information on the book "In the Cause of Peace," by Trygve Lie. The price of power is responsibility, and Trygve Lie must be held responsible to a great extent for what the United Nations is or is not today. In the closing pages of his book, Lie emphasizes that peace without freedom is meaningless. Lie is particularly proud of the popular support his "peace mission" had provoked. In his book, he quotes the encouraging remarks of the London bobby guarding 10 Downing Street and of the elevator man in his London Hotel.
