The appointment of ANNA M. RO-
SENBERG, of New York, to the re-
sponsible position of Assistant Secre-
tary of Defense for Manpower and
Personnel is at once an honor and a
challenge to all women in political life.
Her decisions will effect policy on
training, on remobilization and will
eventually alter and define this coun-
try's policy on the draft and the gene-
ral disposition of men and women in
the future of the U. S. in world affairs.
Mrs. Rosenberg's experience as a Re-
gional Director of the War Manpower
Commission and a Consultant on Man-
power to the National Security Re-
sources Board will serve her well. She,
herself, served in uniform as President
Roosevelt's representative in Europe
reporting in 1944-45 on the problems
of returning soldiers, mindful even then
of her own son's war time service in
the Army. Mrs. Rosenberg's immediate
job is to find a three million man
force and then to maintain it. She will
face the criticism of men and women
throughout the country for this extra-
ordinarily responsible choice. She has
been referred to as energetic, per-
suasive and that she represents good
human relations in industry. Starting
her career as a campaign manager,
she is presently an advisor in the Dem-
ocratic party. Here at least we have a
woman participating at the policy mak-
ing level in our government and we
take great pride in her appointment.
Joining the other women who have
served as Mayors of cities throughout
the U. S. is the newly-elected KATH-
President of the Monmouth County
Branch of the American Association of
University Women and subsequently
President of its N. J. State Division,

Mrs. White was a graduate of Vassar
College, the daughter of the later Ab-
raham I. Elkus, U.S. Ambassador to
Turkey under Woodrow Wilson and
Judge of the Court of Appeals of the
State of New York. Married to Arthur
J. White, Regional Director of the
Wage and Hour and Public Contracts
of the U. S. Dept. of Labor for N. Y.
and N. J., she has combined an active
political career with a full home life,
which includes her teenage sons pre-
sently attending college. Delegate-at-
Large to the last four National Demo-
cratic Conventions, in 1948 she was
named Special Assistant to the Direc-
tor of the Women's Division of the
Democratic National Committee. Iden-
tified with social reform and general
community responsibility, she h a s
brought to her position as Mayor the
combined background of a thoroughly
co-ordinated, well-integrated, family-
community point of view.
In the October 15, 1950 issue of the
New York Times, Gertrude Samuels
wrote an analytical, incisive article
