WASHINGTON IrB — President- elect Elsenhower's choice of three ire-convention supporters for cab- net posts loft Taft Republicans wondering today if they are gong to share In the new administration's top jobs. Eisenhower has six more cabinet places to fill, plus a half dozen or more jobs of almost equal rank, and backers of.Sen. Robert A. Taft will be watching the President- elect's action closely. Taft's friends found little to cheer about when Elsenhower announced yesterday his choice of John Poster Dulles of New York for secretary of state; Charles E. Mlson of Detroit, General Motors, president,, for secretary of defense; and Gov. Douglas McKay of Oregon for secretary of the Interior. All were early supporters of Eisenhower in his successful battle with Taft for the presidential nomination, i Dulles preserved outward neutrality until July n—tlie day El- senhower won the nomination at tlie Chicago convention—because the New Yorker hnd drafted a platform foreign policy plank to which both candidates agreed. By the selection of Dulles; most GOP polillctms believed Eisenhower had ' • answered • Democratic charges during the presidential campaign thnt the general had "Isolationist." "Ko Comment"—Taft While Dulles probably wouldn't have been among Taft's choices for secretary of stale, the prospective cabinet member and the Ohio senator share somewhat the same views on the Importance of the Far East in American policies and always have gotten along well personally. Taft, asked to comment on the appointments, gave a curt "nc comment" last night: "Why should I be asked to com rnent on'all appointments," ' he said. Taft won a'point when Elsen- hower named an Industrialist to head the Defense Department. But the appointee didn't come from among three men reportedly suggested by the Ohtoan. And if Elsenhower doesn't pick from the, score or more ' of the friends Taft is reported to have submitted for some of the six cabinet Jobs still open, there might develop a coolness which would not increase Ihe favorable outlook far passage of Elsenhower's leg! lalive proposals.
