Admiral Sherman Will Attend 'Education' Program at Benning By th« Associated rrnt FORT BENNING, Ga., Nov. 4.— The Nation’s military high com mand. led by Defense Secretary Johnson, converged on this home of the infantry today to* see how the foot soldier fights. The meeting of the Joint Chiefs of staff and the Secretary of De fense was slated to bring the new Chief of Naval Operations, Ad miral Forrest P. Sherman, to his first meeting in the field with his colleagues. Word was received her^ last night that Admiral Sherman had changed plans and decided to I make a one-day flying trip to Benning to join the commanders of the Army and Air Force in what the Defense Secretary calls a “cross-education" program for all the services.' This was the second such meet ing for the high command. A month ago Secretary Johnson and the Pentagon brass got together on a carrier so that the Army and Air Force could see how the Navy waged war. That time Ad miral Louis Denfeld, deposed Navy chief, was the ranking Navy of ficer. For the joint chiefs—Gen. Omar Bradley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; Gen. J. Lawton Collins of the Army, Air Gen. Hoyt Vandenberg and Ad miral Sherman—the session at Fort Benning will be more in the nature of a “refresher course.” . During World War n all of them worked with the other serv ices in the large-scale combined operations of the European and Pacific campaigns. But now they had been asked by Secretary Johnson to come to Benning to see the new tricks in the hard in fighting developed by the infan try, particularly an artillery-tank infantry team of battalion size. The schedule called for Secre tary Johnson and Navy Secretary Matthews, accompanied by Gen. Bradley, to fly from Washington this morning. Arriving at about" the same time will be Air Secre !

Giles A Navy office which is said to have master-minded the admirals’ bitter congressional attack on de fense policies—“Op 23”—has been wiped out by Admiral Forrest P. Sherman, the new Chief of Naval Operations. The admiral, a strong supporter of unification, moved in on the unit less than 24 hours after suc ceeding Admiral Denfeld in the Navy top command post. The 30-man unit was headed by Capt. A. A. Burke, who testified at the House unification hearings which divulged the admirals’ stand against Pentagon policies. Capt. Burke probably will be assigned overseas. First of Series. The transfer of Capt. Burke is the first of a series of such trans fers and retirements of officers who have been active in the fight against the administration’s unifi cation policies although Admiral Sherman does not plan any whole sale housecleaning. The shifts in the offing are ex pected to include a elean-out of officers, both Regular and Reserve, whose official duties at the Navy Department have been vague and whose time apparently has been occupied principally with assist ing the admirals in preparing the Navy’s “case” against unification policies. Some of these men are aides; others have been in the status of “special duty assignments.” Vir tually all are below the rank of rear admiral. Navy Secretary Matthews, as disclosed in The Star last Sunday, had ordered the Navy inspector general. Rear Admiral Allen R. McCann, to investigate “Op 23,” which in Navy parlance means Operations Division 23. It was a division of the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations. The Secretary's order came after several members of Congress had expressed an interest in the activ ities of the froup of 13 officers and 17 enlisted personnel. Admiral McCann seised a number of their records and documents. The unit’s full title was “Organ isational, Research and Policy Division.” It had these broad objectives: "To conduct research and study involving organisational units and principles now in use or proposed in the National Military Establish ment in order to assist in formu lation of policy by advising the Chief of Naval Operations re garding, relationships or units, functions and policies to existing legislation and Navy Department procedures.” ramptuets mum. Among the document* seised by Admiral McCann’s office were pamphlets and other data which had either been drawn up within the office or had been obtained by it with the Idea of distribution both within the Navy and on Capitol Hill. , Meanwhile, Chairman Tydings of the 8enate Armed Services Committee hit back at those who claim that American seapower is becoming dangerously weak. He declared yesterday that the Navy Is “three times” as strong as the combined navies of other na tions.” On the other hand, he said, “Our Army with only a. few divisions Is pitifully below’ the comparable strength of the other great country”—an obvious refer* enoe to Russia. Senator Ty dings recently re turned from a series of confer ences with European military leaders. ~ Ih air strength, he said, Russia and the United States are about equal. “Nobody can beat us on the high seas, and we intend to keep the best Navy in the world,” Senator Tydlngs added. Calls For Good Army. “But we must keep a good Army and Air Force. That’s where we are weak. • That’s where the enemy will beat us if it is done. I’m worried about the Army and I will be worried if the Air Force falls Into second place.” Capt. John G. Crommejin, whose release of letters addressed to Secretary Matthews sparked the hearing before the House Armed Services Committee, sub mitted a reply yesterday to the charge that he violated “military law” but his reply will not be made public by the department. High naval sources said that Capt. Crommelin unquestionably faces some sort of punishment for his act but they could not say what form this would take. The captain has admitted that he released the documents, which criticised unification policies, but maintained that they were not classified at the time he slipped thent-tt reporters, j - . _ Canadian ^fisheries produce nearly 60 different kinds of fish for table ns*. q$W:T *3R&8&' OVER THE TOP—The Military District of Washington, in an explosive finish, collected $5,633.77 in its Red Feather drive, or 190 per cent of its $2,952.58 quota.
