Newspaper Publiihers THURSDAY, DEC. 29, 1949 Steelman's Left Hand Quoting directly from the Hoover Commission size-up of the National Security Resources Board: "The board is a high-level advisory staff agency to- the President desijmed to survey the entire field and adjust the demands of our national security policies to the national capacity and resources It is not measuring up sufficiently to the urgent needs of the times. It has lacked clarity of basic purpose and firmness of direction." This is the board that has Tneen without ahead since the resignation of Arthur M. Hill more than a year ago. There was one attempt to railroad Mon Wall- irrer.. a crony of Mr. Truman's who has since been given another juicy plum, into the post, but the Senate wouldn't go along with the appointment. Since then the board has limped along, doing halfway the vital jobs, such as strategic stockpiling and industrial mobilization, it is supposed to do. The other day the word got out that the names-of three possible appointees were ready for the President's action when he returned from Key West. At the same time Presidential Adviser John R. Steelman made a curious statement. Steelman, who has been serving as temporary NSRB chairman, said in effect that the job isn't really as important as it is cracked up to be. Ke says he's been doing more board work in half a day than r chairman could do in twice that time. He says he gets board members totre'-her after cabinet meetings. They rubber-stamp an okay < .- :;Js decisions. That's all. I:'s difficult to figure Steelman's angle. Is he purposely belittling the job to smooth the way for another "crony appointment"? Or is this a dodge to shake off the sharp criticism that has been leveled at Mr. Truman for leaving the board at loose ends for so long? Anyhow, Steelman's-claim that he can do the job with his left hand shows a lamentable lack of judgment of what's important and what isn't. The chairmanship should be filled and the board's activities taken out of Steeiman's sphere as soon as pos- On Saluting When the Navy's boss tells his officers and men to salute all high civilian officials, there is little doubt the men in mufti will be saluted. It is a brand new order. Rumor says it came about because a naval officer turned his back on the President. Any discussion of saluting and military courtesy recalls to mind the scrambling days of 1942 when the vanguard of 18,000,000 civilians was being punched into the military mold in the greatest mass conscription In history. Stories of men saluting hotel and theater doormen were rife. In the European theater, orders to salute officers of the numerous forces constituting the Allies offered a further problem, Often the non-coms were asfanc- ily rigged as any officer. Men in the rear areas and in foreign ports saluted any uniform that showed the least wink of bright metal. Of course, the tradition of paying military honor to the civilian heads of the Department of Defense is proper. The point is few civilians know what to do with a salute. They fumble, look self- conscious, dip their heads and flap their hands. Even those who were caught up in the draft in EmbrogliosI or II hardly know how to handle a salute once in civilian clothes. All in all, it is a fairly unsatisfactory and somewhat archaic exchange of pleasantries. But it will keep Navy personnel on their toes. They will get to know the physiognomies of their civilian bosses and will be on the lookout for them. In the initial stages, though, naval men and women will probably act in accordance with the tag line of the recruit credo: If it moves salute it! Standardized Arms From London comes the first official disclosure that Britain, Canada and the United States have agreed to standardize their arms and their military training programs. The plan, says the Labor government ministry of defense, will "insure that in time of necessity there will be no material og technical obstacles - to full cooperation among the armed forces concerned and that the greatest economy in the use of combined resources and effort will be obtained." It is hard to judge precisely what the announcement means. Americans are also assured that no treaty, "executive agreement or contractual obligation has been entered into by the participating nations." Besides, the arrangements "do not impair the control of any country concerned over any of the activities in its territory." The inference is that nothing approaching unification of the armed forces of the United States, Britain and Canada is in sight. But the announcement leaves no doubt that plans to achieve standardization have been pressed and that results are to be announced piecemeal. Do You Remember? One Year Ago Paul E. Buckmiller was reelected president of the Naugatuck Exchange Club. Joseph A. Morissey, of Maple street, left for induction in the U. S..
