- Major Dispute Denied
• On Unification Plans For All Sea Transport 1 By John A. Giles Army and Navy officials are not In “any major controversy” in their negotiations to bring about Navy responsibility for operation of all military sea transporta tion, Vice Admiral Robert B. Car ney, deputy Chief of Naval Opera tions for Logistics, said today. The talks have been taking place over the last seven months and there have been reports that the plan had bogged down in inter service bickering. Involved is an active Army fleet ‘ of 320 transports. The Navy’s • “auxiliary” fleet is composed of . 229 ships, which includes 27 pas senger vessels, cargo ships, tahk . ers, etc. “There have been some diver ■ gent views but absolutely no lack ‘ of good-will by everybody to solve ■ the problem,” said Admiral Car ' ney when asked about the report • ed stalemate in the negotiations. Study Consumes Time. “It is a question of a time-con suming study on a very complex ' matter rather than any major • controversy,” he said. "It is my . personal belief that a very sub ; stantial arrangement will be fln ! ished this fiscal year (ending June ■ 30. 1950) and that we will go into • the next fiscal period with the • whole thing wrapped up.” A recommendation of the Joint Chiefs of Staff that responsibility for operating all sea transporta • tion of the armed services be dele . gated to the Navy was approved last December 15 by the late De fense Secretary James V. For ' restal. But Admiral Carney said - that joint Army-Navy studies on the subject actually had been un derway for two years. Presently the Joint Chiefs’ Joint Military Committee is working out the written agreements and charters for the transfer which then must be approved by Defense Secretary Johnson. The Army uses civilian person nel to man its transports; the Navy operates with uniformed personnel. This is one of the major problems facing the com mittee in its consolidation ar rangement, Admiral Carney said. Army Ships Listed. The Army now owns and oper ates 129 transports, 66 of them passenger ships, 58 cargo vessels and 5 tankers. In addition it has under charter and is operating four passenger transports, 185 cargo vessels, one tanker and one reefer or refrigeration ship. Admiral Carney said some of ' the other major complexities of the consolidation plan involved the accounting for expenditures • of millions of dollars annually un - der widely divergent fiscal set-ups of the two services, organizational structure, personnel management, and a large number of legal problems. He indicated that the Army’s ports of embarkation might not I The Easy Way John felt very envious As Som drove down the street In a brand new shining cor With accessories complete.

Rather they will be "considered and' em ployed under the same principles of consolidation and joint use as that now being invoked through out the National Military Estab lishment,” he said. The unification of sea trans portation will follow the pattern laid down in the merger of all air transportation facilities in the Military Air Transportation Serv ice under the Air Force. A similar plan for transfer of all military rail transportation to the Army is being studied. Wellings to Head System. It was learned from other sources that Rear Admiral A. J. Wellings, Chief of Naval Trans portation. likely would head up the combined military sea trans portation system when it is finally worked out. Meanwhile, the Navy has de cided to allot cabin class facilities to some of its enlisted personnel traveling on its transports when their dependents are on the same ships. Heretofore, the dependents rode cabin class while the hus bands were in the troop class spaces and were not allowed to join their families except during certain periods. This has been brought about by lack of sufficient cabin space. Because of the “hardships and inconveniences” of this arrange ment the Navy selected the Gen. William Mitchell, in Pacific Ocean service, as the transport on which troop class passengers would be carried "experimentally in cabin class.” The Army also is experi menting with this plan. India shortly will have its first! air technical college, near Banga lore. Bureau of Standards Plans Special Television Study The present development and future possibilities of color tele-' vision will be studied by a special committee set up today by the National Bureau of Standards at the request of Senator Johnson, Democrat, of Colorado, chairman of the Senate Commerce Commit tee.

Bailey, of Wash ington, a consulting engineer and president of the Institute of Radio Engineers; Dean W. L. Everett of the University of Illinois Col lege of Engineering, and Donald G. Fink, editor of “Electronics.” The committee will study scien tific and technical aspects of the problem and expects to report to Senator Johnson in November, the bureau announced. It plans its first meeting for early next month when Mr. Pink will report on discussions of the Interna tional Conference on Television Standards now meeting in Zurich. Switzerland.
