PAOB BKOT Ikes Cabinet Choices Get Praise from Both Sides WASHINGTON Mi — Generally favorable reaction from leaders of both major parties hns greeted President-elect Elsenhower's three latest appointment* to his high command. Two of the three were for cabinet post*: Herbert Brownell Jr., Kew York lawyer nnrt former aide of Oov. Thomas E. Dewey, as attorney general, and Oeorge M. Humphrey, Cleveland Industrialist, M secretary of the treasury. . Zlsenhower designated former OCT. Harold K. atassen of Minne- •oU is mutual security administrator. Of, Humphrey's selection, Democratic Sea. Byrd of Virginia salci: "He'Is a most outstanding and able .businessman, and I predict Jor Him 'a most successful administration/' ; Byrd, who refused to support Democratic presidential nominee Adlal Stevenson, Imd been mentioned for the. Treasury post but •eld earner yesterday he did not want »..•.: Coarratufatlon* Sent Secretary of the Treasury ft n y d e r telegraphed congratulations to Humphrey, offering his assistance rn making a smooth transfer of authority. Snyder called Humphrey "an administrator of sound Judgment and experience." Mutual Security Administrator Averell Harrlman made a similar offer in a telephone oall to Sins•en. Harrlman'a office said the two agreed to an early meeting, but set no date. Sen. Robert A. Tafl of Ohio, who lost the GOP presidential nomination to Eisenhower, declined comment on yesterday's appointments by the. President-elect. None ol th« appointments went to men reportedly favored by Taft, although Humphrey was honorary chairman of a Taft committee In \VA. Sen. Wayne Morse of Oregon, who bolted the Republican party to hack Slevenson and now calls himself an Independent, commented: "The latest batch.of Eisenhower appointments Is but a continuation of placing reactionaries in complete control of his administration. . , . Elsenhower apparently believes In placing big business In control of Ihe government." Morrenthau Comment! In an Indirect'comment, former Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenlhau said he hopes the El- senhower cabinet "doesn't go too much big business." Morgenthau, who served under the late President Franklin ID. Roosevelt, told reporters In Tucson, Ariz., he was "a little bit, worried" about the possible make-up of the cabinet. Reaction from other members of the Senate, which must act on confirmation of such appointments, Included: Sen. Sparkman (D - Ala), the Democratic vice presidential nominee, said he was not acquainted with Brownell and Humphrey but praised Stasscn as having "the right outlook on the mutual aid progrnm." . • . Sen. Mundt (R-SD) said he considered Brownell arid Stassen well qualified, but did not know Humphrey. ,'...'' Sen. Stennls (D-MIss) praised BrownoU's choice, said Stassen was "acceptable"' and did not know Humphrey. Sen. Walklns <R-Ut»h) said he approved the appolntmenti of Brownell and Stassen. A • America Must Rise Morally ATLANTIC CITY, N. J. (#, — A Methodist bishop says this country must rise above what he called Its lax morality In order to be an effective force for world peace. "We must purge our national life," said Bishop Richard o. Raines of Indianapolis In a report to the semi-annual meeting of the Council of Bishops of the Methodist Church. Citing gambling, drinking, divorce and civic- corruption In the U. 8., Bishop Raines snld there w.u "no precedent Jn history for thinking such a nation can be used of God to bring peace and good will to earth." ' Hwever, he added that he «aw signs of "spiritual awakening" and Indications of a "serious concern that raises the hope that our nation may rise to meet, the challenge." GREEN TAFT cCwMmiod from Page », ttw members of your bereaved tarnnV profound sympathy in your boor of sorrow." Pull Ftedced Mirier Green was a full-fledged coal miner by the time he was 18. He had been la the soft-coal pits long before that, but how soon he start- ad digging coal after his birth on March S, 1»70, in the Prosser'.i Hollow section Just outside Coshocton no one seems to know. . Young Bill Green's father was a miner and early In life Ihe son developed a deep-rooted devotion to unions. When he was 36, Green went to the Ohio Senate for two terms and won a fight to abolish a mine pay .-practice he believed .unjust. He Introduced and obtained passage of a bill banning' the prac- tice'of paying miners only for con! big enough to be stopped by a two- inch'Screen. At about the same time, in 1906, Green became president-, of' the Ohio District of the UMW. He bc- _ came.Lewis' secretary' in 1912 and, In 1934, on the death of Samuel Oompers — the founder and only other president the APL had ever had-^XJreen became the AFL leader. He has been re-elected AFL- president every year since. He was last elected in September. Aa Green's health deteriorated, his family kept silence, hoping 'to avoid the flood of sympathetic messages it knew wns Inevitable. But death opened the floodgates to all who mourned him. Both President Truman and President - alect Eisenhower praised Green. Salct Elsenhower In a statement Issued in New York: "For many years Mr. Green hns been the voice of n Inrgc section of the working men and women of America. He has consistently worked for their welfare. He has been a real American and a grea: national flgura. I Join with the thousands of his friends who knew and respected him In mourning his passing." Truman said: "He was R line American patriot who dedicated his life to the service oC thoso who worked. His sue qess U a monument to his labor statesmanship. He was a friend to me and to thousands of others, to whom his wise counsel and understanding were helpful always. He will be missed by Americans in all walks of life." Taft Praised Him Sen. Robert A. Toft, co-nil(hor of the Taft - Hartley labor nci which Green so olten denounced said: "William Green was a grea labor leader. Everyone triistet him to be honest and stralghtlor ward. I often disagreed with him but I always kept the kindliea (Continued from Page 1) ment, In which Eisenhower concurred, saying there would be no discrimination against pre-conven- tlon' Tnft supporters In appointments.
