April 12. t/F) — This i.s ai ABC on the big fuss over Oenerfll jMacArlhur's ideas nnd those ot pic Truman administration which Uil the President to oust MacArthnr yesterday, jj. MacArlliur has supporters, partic- *»»ularly amcnp. Republicans in Congress. Billed down, this i.s the Mac- Avlhiiy school ot thought: 1. Although this country niul its Atlantic Pact partners are inakln, hip; plans for defense of Europe. In case Russia Utacks there, the big fight ngainst Communism has to be made in Asia. 2. MacArlhm's hands were tied He !»vas not permitted lo use his full strength in the Korean War against the Communists ot to ifght it Llie way lie. as general in command, thought best. If this continues there can only be a stalemate, with and materials chewed up needlessly. Roiled down, this is the opposite viewpoint: $» 1. A lot morr than Just the fighting in Korea Is at stake, possibly' outbreak of war in Europe. The great danger i; Russia, not China. Ko we can't aflord to get too deeply involved in Asia, such as all-mu war with China, which we misht do if MacArthur were allowed free rein. Hopalff For End 2. The United Nations which are In (he Korean fighting wit!) this country—keeping their eye on the ,.<i European powder keg—are hoping «Zto find an end to the fighting in Korea by reaching some settlement with China that would let them concentrate on Europe. But If MacArthur followed his ideas, such peace might be impossible .1. Further, the Truman Administration v;as miffed at MacArthur' for repeatedly popping off with suggestions which might upset this country's other plan* lor Europe, and perhaps spoiling chances of peace with China. That finally led to his dismissal. To see the situation, look at geography: The only part of China which touches Korea is Manchuria. It runs nlons the whole northern Korean border. All the men and supplies which the Chincje pour into Korea have to move dawn- through Manchuria. Also, the Ch'nese reserves and supplies are based in Manchuria. And any planes which the Chinese have, f-H'eri them by Russia, have Ui be based In Manchuria. Russia IE Manchuria's other neighbor. MacArthur wanted freedom to bomb China's Manchurian .supplies and bases. If Ihey were smashed, the Chinese in Korea would have tougher going than they've undergone to far.f t Bul MacArthur was not, permlt- .' ted to Uo this. lie. had to do alt his lighting' against, the Chinese Inside Korea, with his planes forbidden to cross the border. r.
