(AP Wirephoto) Byrnes Has Serious Concerns About The Post-War World He Helped To Fashion By AL LANIER' COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP)-At 84, Jimmy Byrnes is siill the jaunty, keen-eyed man seen in Lhe newsreels with world leaders in the fateful years of the 1940s. With upright figure and hat cocked at a. rakish angle; he re- i tains the jovial manner lhal won ; him friends in high places around j the world. But James F, Byrnes has serious concerns about the post-war world he helped fashion. "The United Nations must be reformed if it is to exist," says the man who signed the United Nations Charter for the United States. "Every imiwrlanl agreement we made with tiie Soviets was violated by them when they decided it wns in their interest," warns Byrnes, who negotiated with them as U:S. Secrelary of State. During World War II, Byrnes was director of war mobilization and was dubbed "the assistant president." He served from 19-la to 1947 as Secretary of State under president Harry S. Truman. After more than 30 years of high-ranking federal service, beginning as U.S. senator, Byrnes came home to South Carolina and served as governor from 1950 to 1954. Today, the Byrnes live in a fashionable but unpretentious Columbia home. He visils his downtown law office regularly. But most of his time--and money--are devoted to the 'James F. Byrnes Foundation, which provides college scholarships to orphans. "I don't accept employment of any kind," Byrnes said in a. recent interview. "I'll make a speech on a public question I'm interested in, when I feel like it." To meet the financial demands of the college awards, Byrnes has turned over to the foundation "every dollar" he ever made from his books, articles and speeches. The retirement money he gets from the federal government also is funneled into it, and recently his beach house at the Isle of Palms near Charleston was sold for S29.000 to keep the awards program operating. | "We've used about all I feel I j cari spare from my savings," said Byrnes. "But whatever we can j get along without, I'll give." ; The toundalion was started in ; 1948 with $50,000 Byrnes received I from the New York Herald Trib- i une for Ihe newspaper rights lo his book "Speaking Frankly." About 540,000 in royalties from the book also went into the program which provides $500 a year for four years for each recipient. The money is an outright grant, not a loan to be paid back. "Since 19-18, the grants have gone lo 265 young people and all but five have lurnei] out to be college material," Byrnes said i proudly. "You know, I think orphans · have an advantage over Ihe rich boy who has no incentive," he added. "There Is such a Ihing as an aristocracy ol character,' brains and energy." Most of the grants have -been made to white orphans, but. several Negroes have received them, i n c l u d i n g two who have become doctors arid one now in the ministry, Keenly interested in foreign affairs. Byrnes is critical of the Kennedy administration's handling of the Cuban situation. He also opposes many aspects of the administration's racial polices. About a year ago, Byrnes gave up golf and concentrates on fishing. Firmly convinced that fish bile best about daybreak, it is not unusual [or Byrnes, his wife and their Negro chauffeur, Willie Byrd, lo leave home at 5 a.m. and head for a pond. "We got 19 yesterday," he told an interviewer: "eight bass and 11 bream--but I can't tell you j whore we went." Byrnes married his wife, Maude, f)7 yem's ago on his binhday, May 2. Willie Byrd and Miss Cassie Connor, his secretary, joined the Byrnes' menage many years ago and are indispensable. At the tree-shaded house on Healhwwxl Circle, Byrnes limits himself lo a lute-aflernoon bourbon aid fashioned. He attributes this moderation, and '.he fact that he doesn't eal bread, to maintaining his wnighl at a trim 160 pounds.
