    BLACK: "YOU MEAN MY ASSIGNMENTS?".



    REPORTER: "YES".



    BLACK: "WELL, WE RECEIVED....OH, THERE YOU ARE (LAUGHTER)....WE RECEIVED OUR ASSIGNMENT JUST A SHORT TIME AGO, AND I AM VERY PLEASED I'LL BE WORKING ON THE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL COUNCIL, AND SINCE I AM VERY NEW, I DON'T HAVE TOO MANY ANSWERS TO THE PROBLEMS, BUT I WOULD SAY IN GENERAL THAT I WOULD HOPE THAT WE COULD WORK TOWARD PEACE AND HUMAN PROGRESS AND TO IMPROVE THE ENVIRONMENTAL SITUATION IN OUR WORLD, THE AIR POLLUTION, THE WATER POLLUTION PROBLEMS THAT EXIST AND TO JUST BETTER OUR ENVIRONMENT GENERALLY.



    "WE ALL HOPE FOR PEACE AND YEARN FOR PEACE AND I FEEL THAT THE UNITED NATIONS IS THE FORM, AS I'VE SAID BEFORE, TO HELP TO ACHIEVE THIS PEACE, ALTHOUGH OVER 80 PERCENT OF THE WORK OF THE UNITED NATIONS IS IN THE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMMES IN THE WORLD, SO THIS IS REALLY A VERY MAJOR PART".



    REPORTER: "DO YOU FEEL THAT THE UNITED NATIONS SHOULD INTERVENE IN VIETNAM OR IN THE MIDDLE EAST?".



    BLACK: (LAUGHS)"I'M A BRAND NEW DELEGATE AND WOULD LIKE TO TURN THIS QUESTION OVER TO CONGRESSMAN (INDISTINCT)" (LAUGHTER).
