PAGE 2—NAUGATUCK NEWS (CONN.), THURSDAY. NOV. 3, IMO DREW PEARSON ON The WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Admiral Forrest Sherman Was A Favorite Of .Forrestal; Britain Makes Preparation For A-Bomb Attack; Cyrus Ching Is Unsung Hero Of Steel Negotiations. Washington—Here's the dope on i Admiral Forrest Sherman, the man who favored unification: He was Forrestal's favorite. Forrestal had. him earmarked for chief of naval operations, considered him the broadest military man he had ever known. In fact, Forrestal sent Sherman to the Mediterranean with the idea of replacing- Adm. Richard Conolly as fleet commander for Europe. But Conolly beg-ged to stay on and Forrestal gave in, expecting to make the transfer later. Sherman and Conolly have never gotten along since, Conolly being an old-line, unimaginative, battleship admiral. Sherman is just the opposite—alert, aggressive, with eyes ahead. Sherman is short, tanned, ruddy with straight gray hair. He wears glasses at his desk. He was a champion fencer at Annapolis, but his favorite exercise now is walking. Aboard ship, he paces the deck; on land, he'd rather walk a few blocks than catch a-cab. Though he has a dynamic mind, Sherman's personality falls short of Admiral Halsey's. He doesn't play golf or tennis, but reads avidly for recreation. He prefers weighty works, such as. the London Economist Sherman won the complete respect of Gen. Lauris Norstad while writing the Unification Act. Note—Sherman was ready to testify with the other admirals on Capitol Hill. He flew into town, and had his statement all ready. But Secretary of Defense Johnson already had him in mind for chief of naval operations, didn't want him to get splattered with mud. So Sherman was kept in the shadow, never took the stand.

It runs to fifty billion a year Patient Cy Chlng Unsung hero of the steel negotiations was long, lanky fcy Ching who. at the age of 71, resigned from the U. S Rubber company two years ago to help his countrv as a labor conciliator. Ching-s patience is that of Job's All week long, hour after hour day after day, like a broken phonograph record ,he listened to the same-company arguments that workers must contribute to the pension fund. "But your captive coal mines have a noncontributory agreement with John L. Lewis" Ching T°'h ^V S " Steel Vice President John Stephens. "Yes, and look what happiened to Lewis' pension fund," Stephens replied. "It's been bankrupted because it never was set up on sound, actuarial basts in the first place. We want to establish a fOP U ' S ' stEel management nad rejected. As a result, CIO • left-wingers were yel, ling for his scalp. Didn't it mean something to the company to be able to do -business •with a high-class, levelheaded, responsible Amedican like Phil Murray? asked Ching. "Well, this question of contributory pensions is a matter of principle with us," interposed Roger Blough, counsel for U. S. Steel. The Presidential fact-finderswould ihave come up with a different solution if they hnd to run a steel mill, he intimated. Maybe the fact-finders also took into consideration the problems of those who work in a steel mill, slyly suggested Ching. .. "But contributory pensions are now an accepted fact—a part of our economy," angued Stephens. "Social-Security (pensions are con- trib.utory. . The Railroad Retirement Act is based on the same principle. Private industry cannot be criticized for going along with the pattern established by Congress." So it went—sometimes into the night. Ching argued that Phil Murray had proved his responsibility by his relentless fight against Communist elements in the CIO.
