Military Past WASHINGTON Sept 13 AP President Truman asked congress today to make an exception and let Gen George C Marshall serve as secretary of defense even though he is a military man The senate armed services committee immediately proved the necessary tion by a vote of 10 to 2 Congress has to act because the law says nobody who has been on active duty as an officer of the armed forces within the past ten years can be secretary of defense The senate group acted even be- fore a was introduced formally The house armed services tee postponed action until Friday I don't look for any Chairman Tydings told re- porters Tydings said it was clear Mr Truman wanted the exception to apply to no other person than shall to no other circumstance and to no other time in the future An amendment to present law is necessary if Marshall is to succeed the resigned Louis Johnson as of defense Mr Truman wrote Tydings and Vinson asking for the necessary legislation and including a draft I am a firm the chief executive said in the general ciple that our defense ment should be headed by a ian However jn view of the ent critical circumstances and Gen Marshall's unusual qualifications I believe that the national interest will be served best by making an exception in this case Still on Active Duty Marshall left the army as chief of staff soon after the end of World war II in 1945 In fact he still is on active duty under the provisions of the law creating the special star rank Marshall who has taken orders all his life accepted Mr Truman's request to come back for the third time to the pressures and urgencies and demands of Washington official life From Leesburg Va home the general told reporters the dent asked if he would accept the defense post and that I told him I would Marshall

He made hat arduous and dis- mission came back tled down to rest was called back in January 1947 to be secretary of state He left the state department post two years later and for a time was ill recovering only after and months of cence Now he has been summoned again It has been many years since a professional soldier has served as a civilian chief of the armed forces How will Marshall attain a ance between military and civilian Soldier By training and by more than 30 years of practice he is a soldier with the precise realistic approach of a soldier to a problem But he also has been termed a citizen dier by those who have studied his writings on the need for emphasis of the civilian over the military in the nation's defense organization Moreover as secretary of state his perspective of government was across the Potomac river from the Pentagon's high brass and tary style of thinking The speculation about an pointee to fill the vacancy caused by Early's resignation placed high up the name of Robert A Lovett He was undersecretary of state from 1947 to 1949 And he was secretary of for air during World war II Gen Marshall Returns to Help His Country Once Again Ogden Gas Firm Dizzy
