TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 1951 BLTTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAQB TAKfiB Navy's New Boss Denies JCS Is 'Debating Agency WASHINGTON, Sept. 4." Iff) — The Navy's new boss has been at his job only three weeks but he's ready to take issue with the critics who say the Joint Chiefs of Staff have developed into a "debating society." >x Admiral William M. Fechteler— pronounced FEK-tel-er — says the f may come when "there'll be A an the floor" Ironi some bit- dispute over policy with _the chiefs of the Army and Air Force. But he hasn't run into such : situation yet as chief of naval op erations—a post to which he was appointed by President, Truman after the death of Admiral Forrest Sherman. "In the few Joint sessions. I've been in." Fechteler said in an ih- terview, "I have been amazed at the speed we can dispose of things "As for this 'debating society talk. I've never seen anything yel to support such a proposition, i know those fellows and 1 can talk to them just as I talk to my owi people." FechU'ler said there have beei no serious differences of opinion since he tcok over the office. Bu he added: "What we may run Into I don't know. I'm not naive enough to think there won't be disagreements." The new Navy boss is a big, relaxed man who gives a visitor the impression he could take care of himself either in a debate or a brawl. Although he has a Prussian background — hi* lather having come to this country from Germany as a boy—there is no Prussian arrogance apparent in a casual •ting with Fechtcler. ic admiral is not an airman himself, but he has some strong Adm, Fechteler ideas on the role of Navy air in the future. And whether this will bring him into conilict with the Air Force remains to be seen. Fechteler believes that ill event of another war, the Navy air arm will be more flexible and in a better position to support land operations than in the last war, despite Russia's fleet of submarines. One major reason for this is that another war would be with the Russians—and Russia his no formidable surface fleet such as the Japanese had in World War Two.

Four CUIts Added The new link will add four cities —Salt Lake City. San FYanclsco, Los Angeles and San Diego—to the 30 already connected by both radio relay and the more familiar underground coaxial cable. The National Broadcasting Company estimates there are 1.380.0flO TV. sets in use in the four cities to be .added to the network and 11.360.000 in those already connected—or 12.740,000 in all. Hugh M.
