Historical NoteReturn to Top

During the week of April 15-18, 1964, over 1,000 college and university students converged on Spokane, Washington as delegates to the 14th Session of the Model United Nation of the Far West. They debated and voted on challenges such as the admission of China to the U.N., the conflict in Cyprus, and the problem of Israel's right to a homeland.

The sessions attracted much coverage by the local press and were picketed by a group of twenty-five people who opposed the participation of the United States in the United Nations organization.

The conference was a great learning experience for the college and university undergraduates who attended. Many of the issues they discussed are still "on the table" some five years later at the United Nations headquarters in New York.
