Trials of the UN

May 1962
National Review Bulletin;5/29/1962, Vol. 12 Issue 21, p4
The article focuses on the trial of the United Nation (UN) to resolve the problem of share allotment of the cost of UN's acts by its members. It is said that the U.S. which is supported by most payers would agree to allocate shares to finance UN's acts, while the nonpayers members like Russia, France and Spain would say no to allocation. However, as reflected, the case would be dangerous on the part of the U.S. because the winning over the case would allegedly accomplish nothing in return.
