Early Agreement
On Yalta Voting

the little United Nations. There is
unanimity among the big powers,
and within the U. S. delegation,
against changing the wording of
the voting formula. But wide dif
ferences exist among the big four
as well as within the U. S. dele
gation over interpretation of the
Some U. S. Delegates, like the
British, are seeking a more lib
eral interpretation of the formula
but are opposed by the state de
partment. Those delegates want
to remove the emphasis that has
been placed on the big powers’
right to veto security council ac
Tempers of some American dele
gates and advisors were short af
ter a morning session. They wav
ed reporters aside with remarks
that they had been “sworn” and
“double-pledged” to say nothing.
Reporters immediately asked
for a press conference with Sec
retary of State Edward R. Stet
tinius, Jr., who has just returned
from conferences with President
Truman at Washington. The an
swer was that if the state depart
ment felt any differences within
the delegation they should not be
“threshed out in the newspapers.”
The veto controversy has been
going on for a week and the de
lay now threatens to prevent the
conference from adjourning the
first week in June_
The Yalta voting formula is the
major unsolved issue at this con
ference. When it came before a
technical working committee, the
big powers made clear that they
would not tolerate any amend
ments to it. The little nations then
drafted 22 questions designed to
gain liberalization of the formula
through interpretation. The little
nations seek primarily to get rid
of the big power veto over early
peaceful arrangements for set
tlement of a dispute.
The big powers have been try
ing for nearly a week to draft an
answer. They early abandoned
plans of answering the questions
categorically and have since been
trying to draft a general state
ment. The early drafts of the
big four technical committee have
all been rejected as unsatisfactory
and the American technicians
have been trying their hand at the
job for two days. The early
drafts, it was learned, were in
effect merely strong defenses of
the veto.
j.ne veto power controversy was
the major cloud hanging over the
conference. Other phases of the
drafting job are moving rapfdly
to an end, but the rest- of the
chapter is useless in the absence
of agreement on how the security
council should vote.
Meanwhile, there were some
sharp debates in committees over
at least two secondary but never
theless Important issues—whether
provision shall be made for ex
pulsion of a member and whether
the security council shall be re
quired to make special reports
on its provisions to the general

sion on the expulsion issue and
