President-elect John Kennedy of the U.S.A. introduced three high-ranking officials of the new Administration to the Press in Washington, U.S.A. Dec 15 and 16. They were Arthur J. Goldberg (Secretary of Labour); Douglas Dillon (Secretary of the Treasury); and his younger brother, Robert Kennedy (Attorney-General).
Mr. Goldberg is a union legal adviser; and was principal architect of the merger between the American Federation of Labour and the Congress of Industrial Organisations. Mr. George Meany, president of A.F.L. - G.I.O. joint organisation, said he had no objection to the appointment, although some of the old craft unions were reported to have shown no enthusiasm.
Mr. Dillon has had a distinguished career as Ambassador to France and as Under-Secretary in the State Department in the Eisenhower Administration, where he has been primarily concerned with economic affairs.
Mr. Robert Kennedy managed his brother's presidential campaign; and his work as counsel for the Senate Labour Rackets Committee has been described as "noteworthy". He was a member of the late Senator McCarthy's Senate investigations sub-committee, but afterwards resigned. He was for ten years a lawyer with the Department of Justice.
