Radford Named
Joint Chairman
By the Associated Press
President Eisenhower yesterday
nominated Adm. Arthur Radford,
longtime battler for naval air pow-
er, as chairman of the Joint Chiefs
of Staff in' a sweeping shakeup of
the entire military high command.
Radfordawill take over the chair-
man's post from Gen. Omar N.
Bradley. He will be the first Navy
man to head the Staff. ..
Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway will
turn his European defense com-
mand over to Lt. Gen Alfred M.
Gruenther and return here to be
Army chief of staff, succeeding
Gen. J. Lawton Collins.
Adm. Robert B. Carney will suc-
ceed Adm. William B. Flechteler
as chief of naval operations.
A shift in the top Air Force post
previously had been announced.
Last week, the President nomi-
nated Gen. Nathan Twining to suc-
ceed Adm. William B. Fechteler
Air Force chief of staff.

THE SHAKE-UP fulfilled a de-
mand of Republican leader Taft
of Ohio, for a clean sweep of the
Truman-appointed military hier-
It came as a bitter jolt how-
ever to the Air Force. Behind the
scenes, the Air Force has been
fighting tooth and nail against
selection of Radford to the na-
tion's No. 1 uniformed post be-
cause of his past opposition
to large-scale construction of
the giant B36 intercontinental
bomber and his strong support
for super aircraft carriers.
Of late, however, Radford has
kept his views on these touchy
subjects under wraps.

ON CAMPUS, faculty members
in the Naval Reserve spoke of Rad-
ford as "one of the most able bod-
ied of the Navy's admirals."
Prof. George Peek of the political
science department who served
five years in the World War II Pa-
cific Naval campaign spoke of
Radford as "a brilliant man with
a great deal of imagination."
Dean Ralph A. Sawyer of the
graduate school also a naval re-

the Free University of Berlin, which student Legislature has voted to
adopt and support.)
In addition to arranging grants of material aid for the Free,
University of Berlin and, the Office of All-German Student Affairs,
the Student Legislature is making extensive plans for cultural con-
tacts between the University and the two Berlin groups.
Radio broadcasts' and exchanges of student art exhibits and
literary efforts have been suggested as ways to further SL's plan for
intellectual support of the- struggling five-year-old West Berlin school.
PHILIP NIELS6N, Grad., who attended the Free University last
year, has expressed hope that study or work camps might be organ-
ized in Berlin to give Michigan students an opportunity to become
acquainted with living conditions abroad while learning to speak
German fluently and studying at the Free University.
