Andrew Jackson in the War of 1812. said Hw While House had assumed Whitehalr had been designated ns the Navy official who would re- mnin as acting Navy secretarv until that post was filled by the new Republican administration. It wns the Pentagon's turn to be surprised. Flober ff , not Whitehair, bad been designat'cri ' interim Navy boss by "former Secretary Dan Kimball and former Secretary of Defense Hobert Lovett. At trie Defense Department, it was said Kimball had sent Whitehair's resignation, together with his own and other Nnvy resigna- .ions. (o Lovctt's office on Dec. 19 On Jan. 5, Lovelt's office transmitted to the White House resignn- .ions for all of the Pentagon top officials affected by the change of administration. Also sent were the names of three service deputy or assistant secretaries recommended to slay on In the interim. No one seemed clear about what happened to the Whitehair resi-*na- tion -i « v eek ago yesterday, Dulles snld the policy which aims only at containing Russian expansion Is "»n unsound policy." And he expressed conviction (hat n positive policy for the liberation of satellite countries must be devefeue'd. "It must be and cnn be a peaceful process," he said-. "Those who do not believe that results can be obtained by moral pressures, by the weight of propaganda, Just da not know what they are lalklnz about." The following night, in a speech at Scranton, Pa., Kennan said "It is right that Individual Americans" should promote their beliefs, nnd he spoke of the ultimate victory ot "the competitive power of freedom in the struggle of ideas." Inconsistent With Obligation Kennan argued, however, agnlns "doing anything at the govern mental level that purports to af feet directly the govenitnfiilnl sy.s tern iri another country." He de clared Dial would be inconslsteni with America's international obli gallons, Its diplomatic relations and its membership in the United Nations and could "involve us ir heavy responsibilities." After Kennan spoke, news re ports pointed out an apparent poll cy conflict between his ideas nnd those of Ihe new Stale Departmcn head. On learning that this conlrnst was being drawn, Kennan is understood to have sent a note to Dulles explaining that his speech had been written and cle.ired In the State Department several days In advance of Dulles' appearance Jefore Ihe Senate committee and thus could not have been directed it what Dulles said there. Kennan apparently was dls- :ressed that his speech might Imv'e been so Interpreted. The line which Dulles took before the committee, however, was one which he had advocated during the presidential campaign, and the question remained whether Kennan had this in mind in exprcss- ng the views he did in his Scranlori speech. His note evidently was sent 16 Dulles before the taller, in a letter^ to foreign service employes yesterday, said he would tolerate iothing- less than "positive loyal- y" to the nation's policies. In re- >ly lo a question about the letter aulles said he had not "gone Into he Kennan matter." . • The point as to whether Kennan ilsnpprove.', basically of the policy which Dulles has outlined with respect to the satellite countries is one which remains to be answered in the forthcoming talk between the two men.
