two BI/rrHEVTt,T,E (ARK.) OOTTRICT NEW* WEDNESDAY, BBC. t, Durkin's Appointment Puts Eisenhower in Nice Spot By JAMEf AKLOW WASHINGTON HI ^- By appoint- in? • labor leader. Martin P. Duri!o. as secretary of labor, Gen. Eisenhower put htmself in a nice position if Durkin's handling of the job goes sour, He can'say then: "I promised lo be fair to labor. I did'' what neither Roosevelt nor Truman did in 20 years: I put a labor leader In the top labor job. "1 leaned over backwards to be fair. Durkln was not only a labor leader. He was » Democrat who vo(ed against me. K it didn't turn out right, at least I tried." Bui the selection of a union leader for the Job—Durkln Is president of the AFL's plumbers and steamfltters—Is .far from a guarantee of sunny days ahead In the troubled field of labor. The secretary of labor has Importance, of course. He heads the Department of Labor and Is A member ol the Cabinet. But Ms Is a.job with tremendous limitations. Congress gave the Labor Department, and there for the secretary, the task of . administering the Wige-Hour Act, the public em- Sex Change Operation Not So Rare NEW YORK (ft— Medical luthor- ~ v Itlei here yesterday Mid the MX change of former OI George Jorgeri- son into » girl wM-leu of a rarity than generally belleyed and that 10 similar cases'presently were being treated.in one New York hospital. The authorities, who declined use of their names, said the 10 c»ses were being treated in Presbyterian ' Hospital. The same hospital, they Sdld, has worked on about 20 such cases In recent years, helping the patient* to revert to their true sex. Both Pre&byterlan' Hospital, here and Johns Hopkins University In Baltimore have groups specializing in sex 'conversion. , One specialist•: here said the 10 persons being: treated at Presbyterian Hospital were born »E /'pseuao - hermaphrodites." • Such persons, Re said, are born with Internal female organs, but with rudimentary external organs , which appear masculine. They are therefore - brought up aa boys although basically they are females Several operations are required in conversion, he cald. ployment offices, the whole operation of tha' labor stnntlards and statistics, and sorrie'other chores. But tho secretary has.no control over the government's mediation service, which was created to try to settle labor-management disputes peacefully. The service used to be part of the Labor Department but Congress look:that away. And tbe secretary has no say &t all over tho most vital government problem and responsibility in the whole field of Inbor- mnnagcmcnt relations: how the Lwo sides get along, or fall to under the basic labor low; the Taft-Hartley Act. Congress gave that job to the National Labor Relations Hoard. In fact, the Democratic congress which created the first basic labor law—the Wagner Act, predecessor of Taft-Harlley—set up the NLRB to administer the act. And when the HcpublScan Congress In 1941 substituted T-H for Uie , Wagner Act, It retained the NLRB, keep- Ing the secretary nt arm's length. Those who knew Durkln during those hectic 1935 days, when Congress was putting the Wagner Act together, sny he opposed hand- Ing the Job lo Ihe NLRB. I' he still thinks the Idea Is wrong, and tries to get Congress lo change its mind, he'll probably wind up nowhere fast. Drive Planned *-£,*..
