Byrnes also- didn't object to moat news leaks; felt the American people had the i-ig-ht to know about foreign policy. However, some of those allegedly close to General Mai-shal say he may tighten up .on the Byrnes policy and crack down on news leaks. This, of course, may be unfair to the new secretary of state: for, based on his own past record. I Marshall ha^ been quite a "leaker" | himself. In fact, one cable seized j from the flies of the German for-, tlfrn office now reveals that Gen-; cr»l Marshall was woefully indiscreet in the early -stages of the European war and inadvertently lot out Important secrets to the en» umy.. When the American Army captured German files in Berlin, one of the most amazing cables they unearthed was sent py Nazi Consul General Hans Eorchers in New York, May 13, 1941, regarding u dinner-table conversation General Marshall had with a high Ameri-! lean society woman. The cable read ,-i.i follows: "Mrs, Hcrblg told that she sat At a dinner between General Marshall and a member of the government and the possibilities of war in Europe were discussed and both stated that It was" definite that Greenland, Iceland, and the Azores should be used as bases for troops in order to facilitate Invasion of Norway, Northern Prance, Spain, and Portugal. An attempt was be- made to select qualified elements for a fifth column to Spain «mong prisoners and immigrants." At that very same time. American newspapers were being bitterly condemned when some or them hinted that the United Status was planning to use Iceland ami the Azores as military bases, A little later, when Maj. Gen. Hrnry Miller told u society lady In London about allied plans for the Normandy invasion he win promptly reduced to the raak of Colonel and sent home i'rom Ens- land, •N'oto—Mrs, Herbljj is the code name for the Washington society who duped General Mar- However, nothing has ever been done since tho war about talc- t' nctlnn against her.

"It's a wast*, of time and money, when one committee can do the job." He suggested that "Senate and House leaders get together and decide on who should investigate what, so as not to tread on each other's toe» and fill the record with duplicating testimony. Truman didn't commit himself directly 'on extension o£ his old Senate War Investigating: committee. Previously, however, he was quite blunt In dlscussdng this with Democratic Senator Glenn Taylor of Idaho. "When Senator '-Mead' (N. Y.) became chairman -of the committee," Truman explained,'"I told him the committee should win'd up its activities when the war ended. It was set up ,-strlctly as a wartime proposition -and has done Its job, in my opinion." « The President also told Taylor that 'he has two major objectives before 'leaving the White House. He'said; "I hope to secure, peace in the world and, secondly, I hope to put the nation';; economy on a basis • of 'full 'production- and employment."
