    Title reads: "Korea Question Stirs Opening UN Session". American newsreel item.

    New York, United States of America (USA).

    CU American delegate Henry Cabot Lodge, seated, and being welcomed. MS Soviet delegate Andrei Vyshinsky seated. GV UNO General Assembly in session.

    MS Senator Lodge speaking "Every element of American life, is eager for peace. For the sake of peace we have to put up our resources we have sent our men. This brings me naturally to another sombre truth, this is that the Soviet Union is actively assisting the aggressors in Korea, on a scale that makes possible the continuance of that aggression, and which determines its scope Failure to end the fighting in Korea, is not due to any lack prevalence of words here in the United Nations. It is due to the frightfully announced desire of the Communists to continue the war."
