Oct60 03:47:03 Tilt down United Nations building. 03:47:09 K. at rostrum, puts on glasses to read speech. SOF (Russian), then narrator over & back to Russian. Applause as K. returns to seat w/ USSR delegation. 03:48:07 King Hussein to rostrum CU speaking in English: “We do not forget our long struggle for liberation; nor could we support existing injustices being committed by some members of the Free World. But in the setting sun of the old Imperialism we are not blinded to the new Imperialism of Communism, one far more brutal, far more tyrannical & far more dangerous to the ideals of free people, to the concept of Nationalism than this world has ever known. (applause). 03:48:47 Indian Prime Minister Nehru walks to the podium. “Seated here in this tremendous & impressive city of New York w/ all the achievements of modern science & technology...my mind often goes back to the villages of India & my countrymen who live there. We have no desire to imitate, or compete, with any other country. But we are firmly resolved to raise the standards of our people & give them the opportunities to lead a good life. Even though this fills our minds, I do not propose to speak to you on this subject because there is something else of even greater importance: that is Peace. Without peace all our dreams vanish & are reduced to ashes. (applause) Returns to seat. 03:50:35 SOF Hammarskjold: “The statement this morning seems to indicate that the Soviet Union finds it impossible to work w/ the present Secretary General. This may seem to provide a strong reason why I should resign. However the Soviet Union has already made it clear that if the present Secretary General were to resign now they would not wish to elect a new incumbent, but insist on an arrangement which - and this is my firm conviction based on world experience - would make it impossible to maintain an effective executive. By resigning I would therefore at the present difficult & dangerous juncture throw the organization to the winds. I have no right to do so because I have a responsibility to all those states members for which the organization is of decisive importance; a responsibility which overrides all other considerations. (applause). 03:51:43 K. & USSR delegation pounding table / desk. 03:52:05 Hamarskjold (SOF): I shall remain in my post during my time in office.. (interrupted by applause & table pounding) ..In the interest of all those other nations, as long as they wish me to do so. In this context the representative of the Soviet Union spoke of courage. It is very easy to resign; it is not so easy to stay on. It is very easy to bow to the wish of a big power; it is another matter to resist. As is well known to all members of this assembly, I have done so before on many occasions & in many directions. If it is the wish of those nations who see the organization as the best protection in the present world I shall do so again. (applause).
