North Atlantic Pact Illegal, Kelsen Believes By W ALT GRAYDON The North Atlantic Pact is either illegal or worthless, according to contradictory interpretations of the Charter of the United Nations. This legalistic view was advan ced by Dr. Hans Kelsen, professor of political science at the Univer sity of California, in a lecture Fri day in Fenton Hall. Dr. Kelsen has held important posts with the Aus trian government and was the first professor to be fired by Adolph Hitler. Dr. Kelsen explained that if the Atlantic Pact is considered to be a “regional arrangement” for “col lective self-defense” as sanctioned by the U.N. charter, then the pact members must also report their activities for defense to the Secur ity Council of the U.N. Against USSR “We know that the pact was pri marily drafted as protection against Soviet Russia,” he said. “Soviet Russia is one of the mem bers of the Security Council. Thus you make defenses against your enemy and then go and tell him exactly what you have done.” The California professor said that if the pact is not covered by the foregoing provision, then the U.N. members that have signed the treaty have violated the U.N. charter. “Another paradox arises by other conflicting intei’pretations of the U.N. charter,” he said. ‘‘Members cannot give armed as sistance to non-members, and this virtually outlaws former enemy states by denying them member ship. Portugal and Italy are not U.N. members, but they are signa tors of the Atlantic Pact which pledges mutual defense.” Confusion Noted ‘‘However,” he continued, ‘‘the pact says that members must re spect all of their obligations. The result would be, if Italy or Portu gal were attacked, that the pact members who also belonged to the U.N. could not help her because they are pledged to respect their obligations, one being the provis ion of the U.N. charter that says members cannot help non-mem bers.” Dr. Kelsen said that this was the interpretation taken from the lit eral aspect of the two documents. Pursuing this line of reasoning one step further, he said that if the Atlantic Pact is considered le gal by the U.N., then the pact members would have to abide by the other rules of the U.N. “Thus some countries would have to follow all of the rules, but they couldn’t join the U.N.,” he reas oned. “Or maybe they would be considered U.N. members because they are members of a member organization.” IFC Rushing Policy Bans Social Contact of Frosh Fraternities will adhere to a “no social contact" system of dealing with freshmen—with penalty for violation—during fall term 1950, according to a statement of rushing policy released Monday by the Interfraternity Council.
