                THE UNITED NATIONS
     GENERAL UNITED STATES-UNITED NATIONS
                        RELATIONS
  I. UNITED STATES FOREIGN POLICY IN THE UNITED NATIONS
                           SETTING'
                         Editorial Note
  The same statute that makes provision for United States par-
ticipation in the United Nations (Public Law 264, December 20, 1945,
59 Stat. 619, as amended) provides also that the President of the
United States report to the Congress of the United States on an annual
basis regarding such participation. For the year 1951 this report was
published as United States Participation in the United Nations: Re-
port by the President to the Congress for the Year 1951 (Department
of State Publication 4583, Washington, Government Printing Office,
1952, 320 pages). This short yet comprehensive historical account is
one of two convenient official sources of information for an overview
of the entire spectrum of United States-United Nations relations in
the year 1951.
   The Department of State Bulletin, issued on a weekly basis, is the
 other source. In 1951 the Bulletin contained a useful weekly feature,
 "The United States in the United Nations." The Bulletin also printed
 the texts of statements, speeches, and articles by officials at the highest
 levels in regard to the conduct of United States foreign policy at the
 United Nations. Among these to be noted for the year 1951 are:
   (1) "The United States Faces Aggression", address by Ernest
 A. Gross, Deputy United States Representative at the United Nations,
 Washington, D.C., December 29, 1950 (Department of State Bulletin,
 January 8,1951, page 57) ;
   (2) "Analysis of Soviet Performance in the United Nations",
ad-
 dress also by Gross, New York, N.Y., February 17, 1951 (ibid.,
 March 5,1951, page 390) ;
   (3) "The Phony 'Peace' Offensive: Soviet Charges Against the
 United Nations", address by John D. Hickerson, Assistant Secretary
 of State for United Nations Affairs, Milwaukee, Wis., April 27, 1951
 (ibid., May 7, 1951, page 731) ;
    (4) "Can the U.N. Become a Collective Security Organization.?",
 article by Harding F. Bancroft, Deputy United States Representative
   Continued from Foreign Relations, 1950, vol. ii, pp.1 iff.
