The appointment of Bernard M. Baruch as American representative on the United Nations Atomic Energy Commission was welcomed today by the New York Times, which says that be combines “with his ripe wisdom the energy and youthfulness of outlook to make him seem the appropriate choice for this task which carries with it so heavy a responsibility.”

In an editorial headed “A Good Appointment,” the Times writer that Mr. Baruch has the qualities which are chiefly needed in the members of such a commission: a “judicial temperament, willingness to weigh without prejudice every proposal put forward, a broad judgement of the political factors, and above all a broad judgment of the human factors involved.”

Mr. Baruch, whose nomination is expected to go to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee this week, which is certain to approve it, has already named several persons to assist his, including Herbert Bayard Swope, well-known editor and publicist.
