McElroy, soap company executive, should win speedy confirmation as secretary of defense:. But he must wait at least a week and agree to dispose of his holdings in some corporations that now have defense" find government contracts. The nomination of McElroy, 52. president of Procter k Gamble Co., went to the Senate Wednesday afternoon a few hours after President Eisenhower had described him as "one of the most capable men and the highest type of people that I know in the country."

No date was announced for McElroy's taking over the post, but in Cincinnati McElroy said it probably would be a couple of months. It was learned that Wilson, for­ mer president of General Motors who ran into some delay before winning confirmation in 1953, already had helped McElroy pave the way for confirmation. The veteran Pentagon chief arranged conferences with Majority Leader Lyndon B. Johnson (D- Tex), Chairman Russell (D-Ga) of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Sen. Byrd (D-Va), and Knowland before McElroy'a name was sent up officially. McElroy is a director of both General Electric and Chrysler Corp., large cfelcnse contractors, and must dispone of those interests. Russell said McElroy already had discussed this with him and other senators. "There should be no difficulty about conflict of interests," Russell said. "Of course, we will have a hearing to satisfy the committee and the Serate on this point and on his background." f Majority Leader Johnson said, he had met McElroy only reeeht -v ly "although"! knew of his atS" : complishments as an executive.
