FRIDAY, APRIL 13, 1951 BLYTHEVIU.B. (ARK.) .COURIER NEWS TrumanMay AskGen. Bradley To Continue in Staff Position By ELTON C. KAV WASHINGTON, April 13. (A')— Gen. Omar Bradley may be asked to stay on for another term as chairman o( the joint chiefs of star/, jt was learned today. The five-star general, now 58 years old, had planned to take off jhls uniform and do some fishing ^pnd hunting after next Aug. 10. That's the date his two-year tour of duty in the JCS post ends. President Truman Is said to want the "GI General" to remain on. Bradley would have been eligible to retire five years ago under the 30-year retirement provision of the Army. However, he passed ui> retirement to serve first as chief of staff of the Army, then as chairman of the joint chiefs. In the latter post, he has had to handle problems equal to any he encountered either as Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower's ground deputy In the European war or as army chief of staff. The MacArlhur How To the purely military troubles arising from the Korean War and the buildup of American forces in Western Europe was added the stormy political controversy which reached a dramatic climax early Wednesday when president Truman fired Gen. Douglas MacArthur. As one of Mr. Truman's chief counselors on military matters, Bradley presumably had to make his recommendation when the President: was weighing the question of reprimanding or firing the Far Eastern t commander. I Bradley is the first man to hold the JCS chairmanship under the post officially created by an act of Congress, Eisenhower served for six months as a "coordinator" for the joint chiefs, an 'arrangement made by the late Secretary of Defense Forrestal and Mr. Truman. However, that assignment was only an executive provision, in the meantime, amendments made to the original service unification bill included formal creation of the post of chairman and Mr. Truman asked Bradley to accept the job.
