"WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1950 fcl.YTHEVTU.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS F>»« Nation Today-Marshall Appointment Question: Must One Man Handle All Critical Jobs? Are No Others Capable? By JAMES MAKLOW W'ASHINOTON, Sept., J3. WV-This. writer has great respect for GcJjJMl George C, Marshal) as a man, as a cltixen, u a soldier, and as v public servant. So what follows here Is not meant unlll no» p has had to bear the brant criticism ot him. But his se lection by President Truman til succeed Louis Johnson as secretary of of Defense raises one question »t once: Why, In a country of 151>,<XW,000 people, docs one man, like General -Marshal], have to serve in one critical job after another? Are no.oth- er men capable o! JillWg ciiUcal job.? well? Marshall was chief of staff during world Wat It. lie relived in 1345, thinking that after his. long Army career and World War duties he could get a well-earned re.it. But the situation in Ohli'.a—b<- tveon Chiang Kai-shek and the Communists—was so bad that Mr. Truman called the general out of retirement and sent him to China as the one man capable of mediating the dispute. Then when Marshall finished of the attacks.almost alone. In order ;or Marshall to take the Job as secretary ot defense, Congress must change' a law which It passed only a couple of years, ago. That law says no former resrular officer can be secretary ol defense unless 10 years have elapsed since he left the service. Muit Chunre taw Marshall retired from the Army only five years ago. So before he ctn be secretary of defense, Congress will have to change the law— at least in his case. The purpose behind the present law, of course, was CARUTHERSVILLE NEWS By Joui Douglas* — |>hont 389-J ' Auriliary Hu Mecttnr Twenty-live members of the American Lejkm 'Auxiliary met Monday evening at the home of Mrs. .H H.

The new president, Mrs. Martin, presided o«r the remainder of the meeting, she appointed Mrs. Ernest Robertson membership chairman. It was explained to 'the members that If dues are paid before the fair. (o preserve civilian control of the I they will receive free Hate-passes. armed forces. That's part ot the American, Democratic tradition of keeping control of the country in civilian hands and out of the hands of military men. Several members o! Congress, however, offered strange reasoning that job, Mr. Truman asked him j in explaining why they'll approve to be secretary of slate. A good man .was needed. Marshall wfcs a good man. He served until ill health Jorced him to retire again to private life. Marshall N'o«- US He's 69 years old. And now, with the nation in a dither over its de- Ien«5. Marshall once more Is ask- ed'flBhelp the country out. • Wanted that Marshall is one of the outstanding men Of his lime, it still is some kind of commentary on the other 150.000,000 people that one man repeatedly hns to be called on to ball his country out of trouble. Then there's another question: how will Marshall make out if Con gre^s approves his appointment as secretary of defense? Elections are coming in November. Pew people are scared in. politics. Will he get a political kicking around? Until now, the Republicans have teen Mamlne Secretary of State Dean Achcson for our China policy. That policy can be staled briefly: Several years ago the Tniuian administration decided it was hope- lew to keep pouring help into Kai-shek's government In Vat fight • gainst the Chinese Communist!. On these grounds: . That Chl'ang'i government was corrupt, 'thai it wouldn't la'te thi .slejK at reform necessary to .help itself, and that it could not win against the Communists so long as ittgersisted in not reforming. M. •* Shaped Polity '5s a result, • American Aid was withdrawn ,a,ndL £ y^e ntually, .ttie^ Com munistJ; drove Chiang' ont.' '' Marshall had a big hand in shaping that policy. When Acheson succeeded him as. secretary of state the policy was continued, always of'course, with the approval of Mr Truman/ who was the connecting link between the two men. But for many months now, wiih the Communists in control erf Chi na, Achesan hjw been oondemnec by the Republicans for our China policy. Senator McCarthy, Wlscon .sin Republican, even called him the "Red Dean." It seems unlikely that nnyorv would dare try to put any Red label on Marshall but— - —. Now we'll hav to see whether. Marshall Is going t be criticized along with Acheson for the China policy." The latte hanging the law for Marshall. They said they'd be against a mllilary man as head of the armed orces in ordinary times, but — hese are unusual times and there- ore fl's all right to put in a mill- ary man. That's a little like saying civilians re all right till things gel tough, but then we need military leaders T that thinking was followed all he way down the line we'd have military state, not democracy. And that kind of thinking is completely contrary to the thinking of he founding fathers who wanted civilian control to be sure that military mer always remained servants of the people, not their masters. -So it will.be. Interesting to see iust how Congress changes the }a' :o let Marshall have the Job: whe- tner it will wipe out Ihe ban on military men altogether or Just re- the rule for Marshall alone V.\*A.«- SHOW STARTS 1-.1S : Study Chih MM«I Eighteen members of the' Music Study Club were entertained Monday eveJiinr at the home of Mrs. Byron Tlnsley In Hayti.
