Eisenhower reportedly placed much emphasis on a need for what one aide called "sound American business sense" in his now-completed search for a defense high command lo direct the spending of. billions of dollars. His first step, taken late last month, was to choose Charles E. Wilson, the veteran president of General Motors, as secretary of defense to head the civilian team. Eisenhower wanted not only a man who knew production but one schooled in (he ways of getting full value out of every dollar. He and Wilson looked for experienced businessmen to head the Army. Navy and Air Force Departments. Yesterday Eisenhower announced the selection of: Robert Ten Brocck Stevens, 53, of Soiiih Pnlinfield, N. J., as secretary of the Army. He is a tcxtilo executive and also is chairman of tho Federal Reserve Bank of New- York.
