Rotary Speaker Asserts Roosevelt Responsible For Present Crisis Speaking to members of the Freeport Rotary Club at Veterans Memorial Home at noon today Dr. James Eyre Jr., charged that a smoke-screen has been drawn across the truth in the Roosevelt- Truman- MacArthur conflict. Author of "The Roosevelt-Mac- Arthur'Conflict" Eyre used as adjectives to describe the Roosevelt- Truman administration "incompetent." "bungling," and -nitwit" and also accused General Marshall of protecting Roosevelt in his refusal to publish his memoirs. He said MacArthur believes he was the victim of a lie in regard to the fall of Bataan and Corregidor and the planned offensive from Australia. "Roosevelt is responsible for the present crisis in America," Eyre charged at his noon talk, and asserted that the MacArthur hearings after MacArthur was relieved of his Korean command were dishonest and also controlled because the administration feared "the real story behind the conflict."
