Why so much gloom over the United Nations? Various problems or crises recently faced by the UN. The speaker's belief that the UN came out of all of these crises stronger than it went in. The UN going through a "change of life." The UN's influence over peace in the world today. Gloom that is perhaps not justified. How things have changed in the Soviet Union. Communism as a wave of the past, not the future. Arms reduction and some effects that might have.
