It hen recommends this to Bradley and the other three members of he JCS. The JCS can approve or send it back for more' study. But—although Bradley Is chairman of the JCS and can take part m its discussion, under the law he cannot vote when-the other three members get around to making a decision, And—the decision of'those three men must be unanimous. If one dis agrees, then they turn the proble: over to the secretary of defense Louis Johnson, for decision. Since in this country civilians are in control, on the big questions th JCS can make no decisions but ca only recommend to the two of our military set-up: Presiden Truman, who is commander-in chief, or Louis Johnson, secretAi: of defense. But—since recommendations the JCS are supposed lo represen the best military brains we hav« they have tremendous weight.
