Denfeld, several grave issues have been pretty successfully concealed. The most important of these is the nature of the duty owed to the ci- vilian chiefs of the armed services by the services' uniformed lead- ers. Admiral Denfeld, it must first of all be remembered, was chosen to be chief of navr.l operations be-, cause he was thought likely to co-i operate in the service unification' which he has now attacked. The' late Secretary of Defense James V. Forrestal (who would personal- ly have preferred Admiral Forrest: P. Sherman) made no secret of the fact that he had named Den-; feld as the most available of the! highranking officers who would not! continue to fight unification after: it became law. FURTHERMORE, after being! named chief of naval Admiral Denfeld fulfilled these ex-; pectations. He accepted unifica- tion's basic principle, that each of. the three services must work to the1 agreed strategic plans laid down by the joint chiefs of staff. He con-: curred in the Key West and New- port agreements, limiting 'ihe: Navy's mission to control of the seas. And all this was bitterly re- sented bv the clique of naval avia-; tors led" by Admiral A. W. Rad-; ford, whose giant carrier project was in fact a project for putting the Navy into the strategic avia-. tion business. j When Admiral Denfeld came up for reappointment as chief of naval. operations last summer, the cur-. rent storm was already brewing.' At that time, Secretary of the Navy Francis P. Matthews pointedly ask-j ed Admiral Denfeld whether he' still remained loyal to the idea of unification, and particularly to its Den- Edward Stettinius Dead at 49 Rochester Man, Lake City Girl Dead in Mishaps Youth Tossed In Front of Police Car Run Over By The Associated Press One Rochester resident, a Lake U.S. May Intervene In Coal Dispute; Steel Peace Seen By Norman Walker j rumor that settlement of both the steel and coal j strikes is imminent collided today with a hint that the government j soon may take a hand in the coal strike situation.

His father, a St. Louis orphan, who had made and lost a fortune in wheat and then attracted the attention of ihe banking firm of J. P.
