Wj — William Thomas Farley, Chicago attorney and railroad official, yesterday was named head of the National Military Establishment's new Civilian Reserve Policy Board. Farley's appointment by Secretary of Defense Johnson Is another step in efforts to strengthen organization of the nation's military setup.

Only President Truman's signature is needed to make the measure law. In still another move to coordinate activities of the armed serv, ices. Johnson has ordered the Navy to take over the Army's oceangoing vessels. This means the Navy will direct a new Military 'E«a Transport Service (MSTS) for all branches beginning Oct. 1.

Churchill's Daughter Calms Theater Audience After Fire Is Discovered NORWICH. Conn., Aug. 4— (iPi — Sarah Churchill, actress daughter I of British Statesman Winston Churchill, told some funny stories to calm a summer theater audience during a fire. Her action achieved Its main purpose. It dissipated some of the alarm felt by the audience when smoke from smouldering rubbish seeped into the theater Tuesday night. But the stories themselves apparently never got across to the audlerlce. They wer e drowned In the hubbub. Miss Churchill, co-starring with Jeffrey Lynn in the Philadelphia Story, stepped quickly toward the footlights when someone cried "fire." She calmly assured the mi- dlence that there was no cause for alarm. Then she told the stories until persons backstage domed the 'ire In a rubbish barrel behind the building.
