This article focuses on the efforts of the U.N. Disarmament Commission. Worldwide hopes that the potentialities of H-bomb warfare might stimulate new efforts toward disarmament floundered last week as the U.N. haggled over the old issue of the role of China. The U.N. Disarmament Commission has gone through the paces of setting up a subcommittee of the powers principally involved, charged with trying in secret talks to find some way out of the eight-year stalemate. In India, Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru proposed a standstill agreement forbidding further H-bomb test explosions. Soviet leaders for the first time warned their people that a nuclear war would involve destruction of Communist and capitalist civilization alike.
