PAGE TWO President Re-Appoints Bradley But Waits on Filling Sherman's Post BLTTHBTTLLB. /ARK.) COURIER »r EI.TO.V C. FAY AHMtated Press Military Alfaln Peporlw •WASHINGTON, July 26. fAP) — President Truman, facing the possibility of another Air Force-Navy controversy, has let the services than the Navy. His altitude and personality can make • difference in the Air force's decision to seek expansion beyond [lie present »5- goal group Of the field of apparent, candi- Army Gen.

The present, chief ol the Pacific Fleel was to the fore of the Navy forces wlllch quarreled "" mil'If he has moved swiftlv to I h'V" A ' ir Force °VeV the'B-36 i bomber program and over division ot wartime missions. make that clear, by nominating Bradley for reappointmcnt to another two-year term as chairman of the joint chiefs ot stair, the President has been ttiore deliberate In selecting a man who by succession might follow Bradley in the chainuamhip years hence. A vacancy on the joint chiefs organization exists because of the death of Admiral Forrest P, Sherman. Urged notation At the time the National Defense Two other four-Mar admirals appeared high on the list of pcKsiuil- itles—Rouer! a. Carney, chief of the US. naval force.s in the Eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean, and M. Fechteler, commander of the Atlsntlc Fleet,. Nor h the remninliiK four-star admiral ruled out of the running—Lynrte D. McCormick, the vice chief of naval operations. No Formal Vollnj The directorate of generals and Acl formally established the Jnli.. chiefs of staff organization — the. ...^ ^^, n ^ ul generals al]f] military chiefs of the Army, Navy [ admirals o\er which Bradley ure- and Air Force, with a chairman-1.,Ides has no book of parliamentary there were some who believed the laws and't cast formal tail- chairmanship should be rotated • • - - ""mm u, u among (he services.' Bradley s friends say he was one of the advocate.! of that idc.l and that moreover he thought the tenure should lo one term and to general or flag officers who. jipon completing the term, would have reached retirement age. If that WHS Bradley's idea, it. has been accepted neither by Congress nor Mr. Truman. The law Congress passed provides the chairman shall serve for two years and be eligible for one reappolntmeiH, except in time of war when there would be liv ihmtallor; on reappointmenls. The President has used this provision lo renomlnate Bradley lor another term. Senate confirmation of the appointment Is required and anticipated^ ' Th» terms of this chiefs of staff of the Army and Air Force and the chief of naval operations are four years. Thus the man chosen to fill the vacancy caused by Sherman's death would be a Joint chiefs member when Bradley^* reappolnlment expires in 1953. May Be Kxvr Man If » custom of seniority of the •ervtcei (» policy that appears predicated on tradition and proto• col rather than law) were followed the next chairman of the lol.-.t chiefs would be. a Navy man However, there would be nothing to prevent the president from turning to MT Force den. Hoyt Vandenbcra- ,. or Gen. J. Lawlon Collins—or from go Ing outside the present membership for appointment of the chairmanship. The Air Force may have keener lots In deciding on strategy or making recommendfltions to Secretary of Defense Marshall or to Mr. Truman. During the World War U period following Ihe first formation of the joint chte'.i ol staff by directive of the late President Roosevelt, a cus- iom of unanimity grew up. But the tradition w»« broken two years ago. On the issue ol whethcf the Navy would be allowed to build a super- size cnrrl=r the Navy member, Adm. Louis Denfeid, wax overruled by his colleagues. The custom now appears lo be for the Piesident or the defense secretary to lake an Informal poll o! the Joint chiefs members—but not the chairman—when a major decision is to be made.

As an example, he slated that when on a current by itself a refrigerator motor runs 15 minutes before culling off. But when an electric Iron Is plugged in at the -same wall outlet, the refrigerator motor slows down and runs for 20 minutes or mor« befora shutting of/.

Altlec today entered his seventh year as Britain's prime minister— Ihe longest one-man run In that office In the past lour decade*. The political fortunes, of the mild-mannered, 68-year-old Laoor Party leader could well make the seventh year his last. World and domestic nflalrs certainly Icolc like making it the hottest. Iron and Egypt are giving Britain a bn.1 lime. The national economy Is feeling the pinch of blg- tcnle rearmament. Aneiiriji Sevan, t'ne silver-tongued Idol of Wales, is challenging Attlee's leadership of the party. Britain's international trade gap Is widening. Like other leaders of the West, Attlee I* won- neriiig where the Communists will s'.rlke next.

Meanwhile, he has the problem of what to do about Bevan and hts • strong bloo of left wingers In the Party. Sevan resigned in April a* min- wt«r of labor.
