More \\Omrn In Government /'resident Truman's failure to appoint [fini'f women to high ol'fico wa>: tactfully laid before tho President by u group of Indies the other day. Mis. La Foils Dickinson, president of thr; Gunerul Federation of Women's Clubs, headed the delegation and told Truman quite frankly that women generally were disturbed he hadn't appointed as many women to government Jobs as Roosevelt had. She reminded tho Hri.-sldcnt that the State Department had built up a roster of «0 well-known American women (.-ipahlo of handling important Government work and urged him to briti),' the list up to date. Or Kathorlno-Alcl-Ialo. of tho Association of University Women, wtis equally strong in urging the appointment of more woinun to Government. Tinman replied that he would like to appoint more women to Jobs but it was difficult to get the right person for the right job. He mentioned General Marshall as a sample of a cium who exactly fitted the job, and also told how he enjoyed appointing Mrs. Roosevelt as a. United Nations delegate. llll \\rillllllL- IIINIi* S55 to 53500 Kxn.rsiVKi.v ,\T— PIERPONT'S ICrKNIvri'll 'It'Wi'lcrH. Aint'ririin tii'lil SurlrLv I5!> HANK ST.—WATJCBBUJiY STILL AVAILABLE!!

"Few people know just how fine a person Miss Perkins is," the President said. "I watched her work very carefully ns Secretary of Labor. .She did a wonderful Job under very trying circumstances." Women Radio Commissioner Mrs. Dickinson, Dr. McHale and Anna Lord Strauss, of the League of Women Voters, all assured Truman that they had given Mlse Perkins' nomination their full backing. 'I watched President Roosevelt work for a long time," Truman continued. "I knew then, but didn't realize fully, just how large a portion of the President's time was taken In finding the right people for the right job. I want you to know that nobody makes my appointments for me. I make 'them on the basis of my own judgmgnt." Mrs, Dickinson strongly urged the appointment of a woman to the existing vacancy On the Federal Communications Commission, but didn't suggest any names. The women's club leader pointed out 'that women make up the overwhelming majority of daytime radio listeners, yet had no representation whatsoever on the FCC. (Some of the women preuent favor Marlon Martin, former Women's Director of the Republican National Committee, for tho FCC vacancy; others are backing former Congrosswomun Chase Going Woodhousc of Connecticut.) Mrs. Dickinson also proposed that a woman bu named Assistant Secretary of State, becauBC of the enormous interosi and great stake that tho women of the country have in keeping the peace. Truman said thu suggestion was interesting. Note—One idea some of the women have discussed but didn't mention to the president, was the appointment of qualified women as Anslstant Secretaries of War and Navy. General Mil nil) ill I on Russia When General Marshall took the oath as Secretary of State the other day, acme of his old friends on the general staff recalled a hitherto untold incident which followed Marshall's sensational press conference in 1941, when he predicted •the Red Army would collapse like im accordion before the N.azls. The incident illustrates that though Mashall can make mistakes, he also profits from them. The day after Marshall's press conference in Russia, Gen. Leslie conference in Russia, Gen. Leslie J. J. McNair, late chief c-f tho Army Ground Forces, walked Into a meeting of the General Staff and st:itod flatly he disagreed with his chief. Marshall, however, stuck to his guns, and cited Russia's inability to produce. "George," replied McNair grimly, "you've made a mistake in Russia. I haven't seen their army, but it's a revolutionary army. You couldn't beat Napoleon when his was a revolutionary force. You couldn't beat Washington's revolutionary army, and you'll never beat Stalin." What McNair said made a deep impression on Marshall. Two years later Marshall was talking with a French General Washington about the collapse or the French army. "We couldn't flght," said tho Frenchman, "Our weapons were out of date," 'That's not the reason," retorted Marshall, "You could have fought even if you had 1905 rifles, but you didn't. France couldn't light because It didn't have the courage to fight. You'll see, when the time of liberation comes, the French underground will be a, revolutionary underground. Then it will light."

Tho doughty general, who once boasted that he sold wrist watches on the Russian black market, and whose position close to Truman i.-: based on their old training days in the Missouri National Guard, commented ivspcctfully on Nelson, saying that .he considered him a man of great ability. Pouncing on the rest of tho query, the Missouri General said: Make a choice between Leon Hcn- dorsan and Mickey Mouse, you c.'in bet your lait dollar that Mickey Mouse would be a dead cinch to get the appointment." Note—During the war, Henderson was entrusted with organizing OPA, and in the opinion of most observers, performed a thankless but essential job of preventing inflation.
