Bowles Takes Position
As President's Advisor
On Developing Nations

U.S.

To Function'
As .Special
Ambassador
Ball Succeeds to Post
Of Under Secretary
WASHINGTON (M--The White
House announced yesterday that
Chester Bowles has accepted a new
and important diplomatic post es-
pecially tailored for him,,
The announcement ended re-
ports that Bowles had decided to
quit after being replaced as num-
ber two man in the State Depart-
ment.
The President's press secretary,
Pierre Salinger, said that Bowles
had accepted happointment as
FPresident John F. Kennedy's
"special representative and adviser
on African, Asian, and Latin
American affairs with particular
emphasis on the problems of new
F and developing countries." t
Bowles, who has held the title
of Under Secretary of State, will
undertake secial missions for the
President in these areas, Salinger
said.
Salinger said Bowles will report
directly to Kennedy and to Sec-
retary of State Dean Rusk on
"long-range planning and policy
in this area and on the improve-
ment of our operation and repre-
sentation in the countries involv-
Bowles will hold the rank of
ambassador but Salinger describ-
ed the job as a brand new one and
not comporable to the roving am-
bassadorship formerly held by
Averell Harriman.
The original announcement in-

CHESTER BOWLES
.. . .assumes new post

volved changes in duties for 10
key officials in the White House
and State Department, and had
spelled out the new assignments
in virtually every case except
Bowles.
The statement merely said that
Bowles would get a high policy-
making assignment on turning
over his present post to George
W. Ball, who was moved up from
Undersecretary of State for Eco-
nomic Affairs.
Rusk was reported to have help-
ed Kennedy work out all of the
new assignments with'the idea of
strengthening foreign policy oper-
ations, in the light of the admin-
istration's 10-month experience in
office.
Averell Harriman, a roving am-
bassador who is being made As-
sistant Secretary of State for Far
Eastern Affairs, said he will con-
tinue his present efforts at the
Laos peace conference in Geneva
for the time being at least.

Researcher
Calls Policy
'Moderate'
Cites New Change
Due to Shake-up
By ROBERT SELWA
Removal of Chester Bowles
from the position of undersecre-
tary of state indicates that mod-
eration is becoming the keynote
in foreign policy.
Prof. J. David Singer, a re-
search political scientist at the
Mental Health Research Insti-
tute, gives this as his immediate
reaction to the announcement of
President John F. Kennedy's ad-
ministrative shake-up.
"Bowles is an idea man, and
apparently is considered too im-
moderate," Prof. Singer explained.
Apparently Bowles is "not as
good an organization man" as
Secretary of State Dean Rusk
wanted, Prof. Singer added.
Fill Position
Bowles' position as undersecre-
tary of State, primarily an ad-
ministrative job, will now be filled
by George W. Ball. Bowles was
named an advisor to President
John F. Kennedy on African,
Asian and Latin American affairs.
Prof. Singer points out that
Bowles is an innovator "who is
always asking embarrassing ques-
tions about policies in force."
Bowles was a foreign affairs
advisor for President John F.
Kennedy during his 1960 cam-
paign and was chairman of the
Democratic convention platform
committee.
Follows Talks
Prof. Singer also sees Bowles'
removal from the undersecretary-
ship as a consequence of Kenne-
dy's weekend conversations with
West German Chancellor Konrad
Adenauer.
"Bowles represents the Africa-
Asia-first faction in foreign poli-
cy making, and his removal seems
to signify another victory for the
Europe-first faction," the politi-
cal scientist remarked.
Reiterating that these were im-
mediate, off-the-cuff reactions to
radio news reports, he indicated
that American foreign policy mak-
ing "seemingly is being influenc-
ed by Bonn."

UNITED NATIONS-The Unit-l
ed States yesterday outlined a1
program for cooperation and con-
