FRTDAY, APRTL «, 1938 BLYTHKVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER Civilian Control of Defense Department May Tighten By ELTON C. FAY WASHINGTON (AP) — Civilian control of the Defense Department may tighten and military Influence diminish under the reorganization plans which President Eisenhower says he is studying. And, for the first time since For- i It has been a complaint of all restal set out to form what he | previous defense secretaries that thought would be a small, compact | because they hart no large staff in administrative agency, the size of the Pentagon administrative organ- *jt ization and those of the military services may shrink. Porrestal was the first secretary of defence, following armed services unification in 1947. This tightening could result from both the reorganization and the money cuts about which the Pentagon administration of Secretary of Defense Wilson is talking. In addition to the 3'/ 2 million persons in uniform, the national defense establishment now has about 1,300,000 civilian employes. A large number are clerical and labor employes. But there also are thousands in purely administrative work, in the Pentagon and throughout the nation. And there are something over 900 boards, committees and councils. Sen. Taft (R-6hio), emerging from a White House meeting yesterday at which Pentagon reorganization was discussed, made plain some of these organizations within organizations are tabbed for termination. Six New Aides Indications were the plan is to I turn the functions of some of these multitudinous agencies over to assistant defense secretaries. Current guessing was that about half H dozen new assistant secretary posts might be contemplated — assistant secretaries for production, for supply, for research and development, for engineering, for atomic liaison, for the post of general counsel. The thought seems to be that even with creation. of the new sub- secretary jobs the overall manpower for administration still would be substantially smaller than under the present system. Recommendations by the Government Reorganization Committee, headed by Nelson Rockefeller, and which will cover both State and Defense Departments, will go to Congress soon. May Go Te> Civilians The expansion of the civilian directorate of the Defense Department, with a re-allocation of responsibilities and authority, could mean that some functions of the Joint Chiefs of Staff— the military their immediate office they were forced to rely upon the joint chiefs for work and advice not purely military. Some previous service secretaries are known to have felt they were captives of the generals and admirals who were supposed to respond to the directives of the secretaries.
