New Federal Reserve Job IsTomMcysum Fifth Tough Assignment For uncle aam SJSm t 1940, By JACK B. THOMPSON "Well, here we go again. Jack." This was Mrs. Thomas B. Mc - Cabe's greeting to this reporter as he called Tuesday evening for an interview with her husband, who a few hours before had been n - od by President Truman to be chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve system. Four different times sine to Washington to handle tough assignments for the Federal Government, so she has a resigned and relaxed attitude about tne commuting between their lovely home on North Chester road, Swarthmore, and the nations CaThis' fifth assignment is - just about as tough as . any of those he was called on to tackle during the war. including the handling of priorities Tor the Office of Pro - d ctlon Management, depu.y Lend - Lease administrator and finally Army - Navy Liquidation Commissioner and special assistant to the Secretary of State. Tom was completely relaxed, too about being named to head the board of the "bankers' banks - which just about describes the Federal Reserve System, with its 12 lain and 25 branch banks spread around the united States. T'.ie abllltv to accomplish assignments - with an easy, relaxed stride is one that has marked the 53 year - old Scott Paper Company president, his frlentU say. in 20 years of interviewing business executives and public officials, we've found that the more successful fchev are the bigger they are - the easier they are to approach. They have a simplicity and directness that wins friends, influences people, and gets cooperation and results in the most complex situations. Over a big slice of deep dish lemon meringue pie, with Mrs. McCabe, their eldest son, Torn. Jr., and three dinner guests, Tom McCabe Tue - day evening laughingly told how reporters and photographers had been dogging him all afternoon, following receipt or word from Washington that the President had named him to be chairman of the Federal Reserve B"Ifd' confirmed 'by the Senate, what are your plans with regard to Scott Paper Company?" we asked Mr. McCabe. - It's a full - time job, and 111 probably do as I did on previous Washington jobs - take a little apartment, in the Capital and return to Swarthmore weekends," he said. . "I assume the board of directors of Scott Paper will grant me a leave of absence," he continued. Matters of financial and monetary poHcv, either his' own or those of the Federal Reserve Board, Mr. McCabe would not discuss, pending confirmation oi his appointment by the U. S. Senate. From previous statements and his business record. Mr. McCabe has shown himself to be anything but a "tory" in his business policies, in the direction of Scott Paper Company, he has shown an advanced and enlightened policy that has made the company a recognized standard for modern manufacturing and sales operations. For example, he introduced music into the local paper mill during working hours; stock - purchase plans, insurance, hospitalization, recreation and retirement plans. Employment In the Scott Company has increased from 300 to 3500 since he became president, in 1D27. . tL Under McCabe chairmanship, it is expected that the 12 Federal Turn to Iae 2, Number i ti s.
