Pentagon Speculates
On Johnson’s Use of
Unification Powers
By John A. Giles
There was increasing specula
tion at the Pentagon today on
how Defense Secretary Johnson
will use his vast, broad reorganiza
tion powers when President Tru
man signs the recently passed
Unification Act, but officials close
to' him insisted he will act with
moderation,
Mr. Truman is expected to sign
the act soon.
The speculation was coupled
with talk on new appointments to
positions created by the act, in
cluding a chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff and three assistant
defense secretaries. Gen. Bradley.
Army Chief of Staff, was most
prominently mentioned for the
chairmanship, and this brought
about further speculation as to
resultant Army command changes.
Foreign Affairs Office Set.
Mr. Johnson took steps to mesh
the Nation's military machine
with other Federal agencies fight
ing political battles abroad by set
ting up a foreign military affairs
office.
N. E. Halaby, a former State
Department official who became
foreign affairs adviser to the De
fense Secretary in 1948, heads the
new setup.
Maj. Gen. James H. Burns, war
time assistant to Harry Hopkins
in lend-lease administration, was
named special consultant to the
Secretary. Mr. Johnson said that
Gen. Burns would advise him on
policy and discuss related policies
with officials of the National Se
curity Council, the State Depart
ment. and other agencies. The
role of the general, who i4s 64, is
widely expected to grow into that
of an “elder statesman.” He will
have no executive or administra
tive duties.
Presumably most of Gen. Burns'
dealings with the State Depart
ment will be in connection with
the military assistance program
should Congress pass that legisla
tion. He lives at 3901 Connecticut
avenue N.W. As a colonel, Gen.
Burns was executive to Mr. John
son when the latter was Assistant
Secretary of War in 1939.
Callaghan Sea Transport Head.
Meanwhile, it was learned that
Rear Admiral William M. Cal
laghan, director of operational
training of the Atlantic Fleet, has
been named director of the newly
created Military Sea Transporta
tion Service. Mr. Johnson on
Tuesday ordered the creation of
the service, placing the Army's
vast transport fleet under the
Navy, effective October 1. A study
looking toward this unification
move had been under way for
seven months.
Despite Mr. Johnson's record of
moving swiftly by sweeping direc
tive, such as in the case of the
scrapping of the Navy's super air
craft carrier, officials insisted he
had no plans for similar actions,
once the act is signed. Rather,
they said, he will move with mod
eration and appeal to the Army,
Navy and Air Force to go along
with his plans.
These officials said It now Is
felt more can be accomplished in
quicker time by this method. Too.
the lack of sweeping directives
might quiet the fears of some|
House members who were hesitant;
in passing the act on grounds that1
it, would give the secretary too
much power.
Several Directives Seen.
Several directives are in the mill,
but most of them are the result of
long-range surveys of possible
consolidations, some of them ini
tiated under Mr. Johnson’s pre
decessor, the late James Forrestal.
The main task, as Mr. Johnson
sees it, is to effect monetary sav
ings in the far-flung military es-j
tablishment, and already a survey
of all branches of the establish
ment is underway to attempt to
bring about this economy.
Mr. Johnson has told the Senate
Appropriations Committee he
hopes to effect savings at the rate
of $1,000,000,000 a year by July 1.
1950.
Names of Aides Mentioned.
Wilfred J. McNeil and Marx
Leva are being mentioned for ap
pointment to two of the assistant
secretaryships. Both now are as-j
sistants to the secretary, Mr. Mc
Neil working on budgetary mat-!
ters and Mr. Leva serving as gen-,
eral counsel. They would con-j
tinue to handle such duties and
the appointments would be pro
motions for them.

sistant secretaryship is a matter
of some conjecture. John H. Ohly
and Paul Griffith, who also are as
sistants to the secretary, have been
mentioned, but it is believed that
Mr. Ohly would prefer to retain
his present status. Mr. Griffith,
like Mr. Johnson, is a former Na
tional Commander of the Ameri
can Legion.
Should Gen. Bradley take the
Joint Chiefs’ chairmanship, four
top-ranking generals have been
mentioned as his successor. They
are Gen. Joseph T. Collins, vice
chief of stafT; Gen. Mark Clark,
6th Army commander; Gen. Wal
ter B. Smith, 1st Army command
er and former Ambassador to Rus
sia, and Gen. Thomas T. Handy,
commander of the 4th Army and
former deputy chief under Gen.
Eisenhower.
Devers’ Post to Be Filled.
Another top Army command
post—chief of Field Forces with
headquarters at Fort Monroe, Va.
—also is scheduled to be filled
when Gen. Jacob Devers retires in
September and the same four gen
erals have been mentioned as pos
sibilities for that appointment.
Should Gen. Collins move to an
other post, Lt. Gen. George C.
Wedemeyer, plans and operations
chief, has been mentioned as a
possibility as his successor.
While some of the new pdsts
might be filled soon after Mr.
Truman signs the bill, the Joint
Chiefs’ chairman will not be
named until after the military
leaders return from Europe around
August 10. Mr. Truman will make
all the appointments.
The United States has more
than three times as many Indians
as Canada.
