Byrnes who went horne to South Carolina less than tw6 weeks ago was back in the thik of things today ancj apparently destined to become the No. 2 manj?oi tne lru-man administration. Indications pointed J toward the probability that he will become secretary of state, later if not sooner. Byrnes, former member of congress and supreme cpurt justice, was popularly calle "assistant president" in the last wo years of the Roosevelt administration, though his actual powers were limited. The outlook today is that he will be that in a real sense in the Truman administration. Understands Problems. Sources close to Sir. Truman said the new president regarded Byrnes as the best map in government today. I As director of war mobilization, Byrnes beewme intimately aquaint-ed with the ins and outs of the toughest domestic problems: manpower, reconversion,! wage and price control, demobilization. He was on the inside of"top secret" foreign affairs, too. Mr. - Roosevelt took him as well as iSecretary of State Edward R. Steinius Jr., to thr "Big Three" meeting at Yalta in"1 February. . Some influential persons in the Truman circle were purging that Byrnes be named secretary of state at once. They acknowledged that Stettinius was an able instrument for carrying out Mrf Roosevelt's desires in foreign affairs. But Mr. Roosevelt, as the sayijjig went, was "his own secretary of! state," making the decisions on I many intermediate as well as mjor points. Mr. Truman, they said, wants to re-establish more cabinet respon sibility and leave more decisions to cabinet members-4-although he of course would retain the final say. Many thought Byrnes best fitted the pattcrr of he man that Mr. Truman would like tci have In the No. 1 cabinet position at the state department.! Skilled Statesman. Against making any immediate change at the state department was the fact that the San Francisco conference nw is only nine days away. Stettinius jhas handled the arrangements for jit, and is head of the. American delegation. To many observers, that seemed to preclude an immediate change. Byrnes, who is 65, is skilled in the three great branches of government legislative, judicial and executive. He first was elected to the house in 1910 and served seven consecutive terms as a representative of South Carolina. He was elected to the-senate in 1930 and in the ensuing' 11 years, except for occasional rifts, served as Mr. Roosevelt's personal liaison officer on Capitol Hill. i The late president appointed him to the supreme court in 1941. Only 15 months later, however, Mr. Roosevelt plucked him off the bench and named him war mobilization director. Severe Tremors Reported In Kamchatka Region 'MILWAUKEE.
