Judge Wyzanski Declines U.S. Nomination to Membership in U. N. Delegation

Judge Charles E. Wyzanski Jr., of the Federal District Court here, has been asked by Secretary of State John Foster Dulles to serve as a member of the American delegation to the United Nations at the next UN session which starts on November 12, it was learned here today.

Judge Wyzanski, who is one of the leaders of the America Jewish Committee, declined the nomination, explaining that service on the United Nations assignment would be apt to have political and legal complications inconsistent with his obligations on the bench. Such service, it was pointed out here today, would not have involved Judge Wyzanski’s resignation from the bench or a leave of absence.
