Douglas M-acArthur, had been made supreme Allied commander in the Southwest Pacific area sent a gre;it thrill through the embattled American and Philippine forces who called it "the answer to our prayers." The fighting spirits that has permeated these troops since the start of the war was unshaken by the immediate Japanese propoganda that their general had deserted Bataan in favor of other Pacific areas. The barometer of troop opinion of their commander skyrocketed and, although thousands of miles distant, they firmly believed their needs would be uppermost in Gen. MacArthur's plans. Complete Secret Buck privates and officers alike joined in the chorus of praise for the appointment. They commended MacArthur's choice of Lieut. Gen Jonathan M. Wainwright to succeed, him in the Philippines. Typical of the comment by officers was the statement of one that MacArthur's appointment was the "best break" of the war so far. Gen. Wainwright has the reputation of being "the most front- going general around here." His responsibility has vastly increased in the new situation and I found his staff felt the promotion had been earned by his long, hard weeks of fighting in Luzon. I asked Gen. Wainwright for a statement on the new situation. He replied there was no change but that he had plans that would be effected gradually. News of Gen. MacArthur's leaving was a complete secret and first knosvlcdge of it came in the announcement by the War department in Washington March 17.

CAHDY COATED orREGULARI HR TO-NIGHT; TOMORROW ALRIGHT MacArthur's Appointment Double Profile Of The American Expeditionary Force Chiefs From Key Sack- To Key Spot** By ALEXANDER R. GEORGE ( Wide World Featuve Writ*;? WASHINGTON, Mar. 26 — The two highest ranking officers of the A. E. F. in Europe are middle- aged army veterans who in their youth demonstrated ability to hold down keystone positions. Both .56-year-old Maj. Gen. James E. Chaney, commander-in- chief of U. S. Army forces in the British Isles, and 52-year-oid Maj. Gen. Russell P. Hai-tle, commanding the American Army in Northern Ireland, were star second basemen in their school days. A Pinch Hitter Chaney was a heady keystone sacker for his school team in Dunkirk, Md. Oldtimers there recall him as a dependable fielder, a good pinch hitter and a fast base-runner. Says Owens Jones, a cousin of Chaney: "He was a quiet boy but he always stood up for his rights. And he would stand up just as quickly for 'the other boys when bullies picked on them." Hartle, a native of Chews•ville in Western Maryland, , was an aggressive second baseman and captain of the nine at old St. John's College, Annapolis. Later as a rookie lieutenant he was nicknamed "Scrappy" for his play on th« RUSSELL P. HARTLE In their youth both held down second base at school. Army diamonds 5n the Philippines. Chaney was a fast youngster on the cinder paths as a member of relay teams at Baltimore College. He had a Marylander's love of horses but was graduated from West Point as an infantry officer in 1908. A few years later he turned his attention to airplanes as a coming military weapon. In The First A. E. F. During the World war Chaney was commandant of the School of Military Aeronautics at Columbus, O., and was an executive officer at the A. E. F. air service headquarters. He commanded the airdrome, at Coblenz, Germany, for a time after the Armistice. A qualified combat flyer. General Chaney is rated an exceptionally able organizer and military diplomat. After observation duty in London during the German air blitzes 'in the fall of 1940, he returned to this country and organized the air defense setup for the northeast. This has become a model for the entire country. General Chaney is wiry, medium-sized, studious and on the quiet side. He is an honor graduate of the Army's Command and General Staff School and a graduate of the War College. . Young For A General Hartle at 52 is one of the Army's youngest major, generals, advanc- ing to this rank from colonel in two years. He is a stocky, hard- jawed infantryman with a drive that indicates he might still be able to cover considerable territory around second base. He received • his preliminary military training at St. John's College, is a graduate of the Advanced Infantry School at Fort Benning, of the Command and General Staff School and the War College. He has taught tactics in several schools. TEXAN IS APPOINTED WASHINGTON, March 20. W) —Secretary of Commerce Jesse Jones today announced the appointment of Richard B.
