    North Atlantic Pact
Illegal, Kelsen Believes
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
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.
“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
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
IFC Rushing Policy Bans
