The Crisis of the United Nations

Straight, Michael
March 1942
New Republic;3/16/42, Vol. 106 Issue 11, p353
Focuses on the weaknesses in the United Nations in the World war II. Suggestion that the Allies should fight collectively and not go for individualism; Reports that demand for daring has given leadership in the Pacific to the Dutch, the determination of Allied strategy and the distribution of Allied strength are restricted to the British and the U.S. Reports that although the combined Chiefs of Staff of Britain the U.S. issue directives to the three international allocations boards; the Munitions Assignments Board, the combined Shipping Board and the joint War Materials Board, these boards are not truly representative of the United Nations. Informs that the Munitions Assignments Board is weakened also because the War Department on which it depends is national in bias.
