His nomination is expected to be sent to the senate within a day or two. Colby Makes Statement. The'appointment of Colby followed a .long conversation between the president and the nominee. "I had a long conversation with the president this morning and I am deeply gratified at the confidence he has displayed in tae and I hope I shall not prove inadequate," said Colby.
