He flew to Los Angeles to visit her when a Vecess of the United Nations enabled him to leave his job as Pakistan delegate; V j ' ' . ,-- , Time phot BY THE WAY Herter, areer BY BILL WASHINGTON When Prime Minister Macmillan gets heret a. day or so from now, to do his conferring with our people about the Berlin crisis and all its ramifications, it is perfectly clear that no matter who does most of the talking for our side he'll be basing f -- - ' ' ' his arguments on facts N , assembled under the di-- . '-. rection of our man Chris-' f tian Archibald Herter. It 'fin ' - has been the acting sec- : -" tary of state who has , 1 . had to supervise the I . ' paper work which is so I; '--J essential to successful dip- . lomatiq discussions. Her "si i Christian A. Herter . tQ note that he ig not exactly a green pea at this sort of stuff. As a matter of cold fact not too many of our secretaries of state, going back through Acheson, Marshall, Byrnes, Stet-... tinius,'Hull and on for years and years, were nearly , as'xperienced as Herter when they took over our top diplomatic office. Born abroad, the son of Ameri- jean parents who were studying art in Paris, he had a' natural interest iri foreign affairs. This he has retained despite the fact that his most notable activity has been in this country, first as a congressman and then as governor of his home state of Massachusetts. : I ' , ' A Busy Executive , There have been a lot of wisecracks to the effect that Herter had the bad luck to be the "second man m a johe-man State Department," a snide reference to the globetrotting of John Foster Dulles. What has been demonstrated by Dulles' illness is, of course, that he has a remarkably well organized department which has carried on as effectively as the White House did during the various absences of President Eisenhower. And the chief executive officer of this smoothly func- . ; tioning department has been Gov. Herter. As to just how effective Herter might be as an across-the-table negotiator, the role filled so ably by Secretary Dulles, It is quite possible that nobody may ever know. A good many people who know him well believe that Herter not only is a fine organizer and initiator of ,fresh new approaches to diplomacy but that, if called 'upon, he would be an able exponent and defender of our ideas. ' Man of Experience Herter came home after primary education in France and graduated from Harvard with honors. He then went to Columbia to study architecture but, on returning to Harvard for his class reunion, fell easy prey to stories of diplomatic life and joined the Foreign Service. At the age of 22 he was acting minister ; to Belgium, due to illness of his superiors which left the job in his lap. He was in Germany by the ' time we were in World War I and narrowly escaped . ; being shot. He was too tall and skinny for the Army but served in numerous diplomatic capacities and was an aide to Herbert Hoover in his relief work. '.During his World War II service in the Congress he 1 was very active in international affairs and after the war headed an important congressional investigation of European affairs. One of his fellow congressmen ' on the journey was Richard Nixon and it was on their visit to NATO headquarters that Herter conceived the idea of trying to run Eisenhower for President , and, at the same time, Eisenhower was so impressed with Nixon as to put his name at the top of the list of vice-presidential candidates in 1952. You'll find Herter is held in high regard by State Department . career men. Vf-7 " I v - . r 'v. -? i - ..' v ... ijt H " !. .

Khan didn't look the part as he chatted in the living room of his hosts Mr. and Mrs. Ray Stark, in Beverly Hills. ' But he looked at ease. And he talked with the authority of a man who is taking his new job as Pakistan's chief delegate to the United Na tions with all the seriousness it deserves. i; He began by explaining he flew to Los Angeles to visit his daughter, Yastmn. 9, when the U.N. sessions, concluded Friday to recess until next September. : Loves Daughter ; "I'm mad about Yasmin," he explained. It was the un derstatement of the after noon because the mere men tion , of the young ; lady brought out the parental gleam of a doting father. "I think she kind of likes me, too," he smiled. .
