Peter Edson In WASHINGTON or worse, too, WASHINGTON— (Special)— When Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor be comes Army chief of etaff June 30, the situation on the U. S. Joint Chiefs of Staff will be different in only one major respect. July 1 marks the start of a new government fiscal year. merit of Defense appropriations and manpower policies for the year will have been set by Congress. The number one problem within the Joint Chiefs organization dur ing the past year has been over the making of these policies, in vi of the tense world situation. It was agreed that the Air Force must have the big build-up men and money. It did not get as much of either as it wanted could use, but it was left reasonably happy. Navy was given a slight cutback. Marines, a larger one— per centagewise — and the Army worst of all. Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway had the unwelcome final assignment as Army chief of staff to oppose these reductions. It is to his credit that he did this firmly but quietly •without kicking up a major ruckus such as similar policy dispute! have caused in the past. SEN. RICHARD RUSSELL (D-Ga), chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, is proposing a one year's delay on these reduc tions. But since the House has approved them, and since they ai President Eisenhower's own policies, the prospect of changing them considered slight. This being the situation, the assignment which General Taylc faces is to carry out the new policies. He will have to forge the best Army he can out of the available money and manpower. On the latter ecore, it will apparently be without the big reserve program the President proposed to Congress. General Taylor is a modest man for an ambitious career West Pointer and a hard-fightin' paratrooper. He has made few speeches and shunned publicity. But his views on what America's military posture and strategy should be are said to be closely akin to those of General of the Armies Douglas MacArthur and General Ridgway, who preceded him in the Far Eastern 'command. General Taylor is convinced that the United States must concen trate its military preparedness for use against the heart and brains end guts of its principal potential enemy. It must not become involved in wrestling with jellyfish in minor wars. THE CAREERS OF RIDGWAY and Taylor are in many ways parallel. Both commanded airborne divisions. Both served in the Italian and French campaigns in World War II. At one time Taylor was Ridgway's artillery commander. General Taylor was deputy Army chief of staff in charge of pli find operations at the Pentagon before he was assigned to command Ridgway's Eighth Army in Korea. Taylor's return to Washington does not necessarily mean that there will be other changes in the Joint Chiefs of Staff this year, although this was contemplated when the new team was assigned by President Eisenhower in August, 1953. The original plan was to change the chiefs of staff every two years and rotate the Joint Chiefs' chairmanship— Army, Navy, Air Force. Gen. Omar Bradley and Adm. Arthur W. Radford having served as chairmen, this would imply Air Force would get the next chairmanship. GEN. NATHAN F. TWINING, present Air Force chief of staff, has Been mentioned frequently as a possible next chairman. Gen. Lauris Norstad, now air deputy commander at NATO, has been considered a likely choice for a future air chief of staff. The selection of Gen. Alfred M. Gruenther as Army chief of staff has been delayed because of the importance of his European assignment. This might also delay the selection of General Norstad for a Pentagon post. The name of Adm. Jerauld Wright, now NATO supreme commander in the Atlantic, stands high in speculation on a likely successor to Adm. Robert B. Carney as chief of naval operations. Return of Gen. J. Lawton Collins from his special post as President Eisenhower's ambassador to Viet Nam means that he will resume his regular assignment as U. S. representative on the NATO standing group of international staff officers in the Pentagon. General Collins was formerly Army chief of staff. Contrary to some rumors, General Collins was not recalled from Viet Nam because of opposition from the French for his active support of Premier Ngo Dihn Diem. Now that career diplomat George Frederick Reinhardt has been named ambassador to Viet Nam, General Collins is free to take up his more important post. But the problem of what to do with ex-chiefs of staff too young to retire has not been solved. General Taylor is only 54. He is considered a natural for a top job at NATO some day. Ruth Millett Contrary to Popular Belief You Do Marry Your In-Laws > effec •hai ;,mgs are time. For s that old saw to "You don't marry Nothing couid be further from the truth. If you want your marriage to have any chance at success, you have to accept your inlaws as members of your family, and for as long as they live treat them with kindness and respect. If you have children your inlaws won't just remain in-laws but will become grandparents— the grandparents of your children. If you live near your in-laws you will probably see a great deal of them, and they will expect far more of you than of their friends. If your in-laws live at a distance you will be expected to visit them and to have them visit you, and the latter won't always be at the most convenient times. THEY INFLUENCE YOUR LIFE And make up your mind to it, you will find many of your in-laws' ideas, opinion* and attitude* to-: ward life reflected in t he man oi woman you marry. So even when your in-laws are far, far away, their personalities will still be influencing your life. So, of course, you do, in a sense, marry your in-laws. There's no successful way to keep from doing it, either. Because the moment you decide to fight your in-laws you are fighting the man or woman you have married. You are making him choose between his parents and you, and no matter what your marriage partner says or pretends, that decision can never be one hundred per cent in your fsvor. Always, there will be reservations, feelings of remorse, resentment that you can't see your partner's parents as he sees them, or resentment at your having made him see them as you do. So whenever you take a man or woman for better or for worse, you are taking his parents for better In Hollywood HOLLYWOOD —i NEA1— Exclusively Yours: Hollywood's current soap opera, "Will Eddie Fisher Marry -Debbie Reyonlds?" has competition these days from an other cliff-hanger.
