UNITED NATION --- Former supreme court justice Arthur J. Goldberg presented his credentials to United Nations Secretary General Thant and began his duties as U.S. ambassador to the world body. Goldberg replaces Adlai Stevenson who died suddenly while on a visit to London two weeks ago.
Goldberg met with Thant on the 38th floor of the U.N. headquarters at 4 o'clock P.M. and presented his credential.
Although there was some objection voiced quietly by some Arab delegations concerned about Goldberg's Jewish faith, most seem now to accept his statement upon being sworn in at ??? White House Monday.
"I go to New York," he said, "to curse no one but in my own way to help keep the candle of peace burning."
