Prodded by President Truman, Democratic leaders cleared the way lor approval Tuesday of a formal invitation for the deposed Pacific commander to speak at a joint faceting of both houses of Con- . MacArthur has indicated he would accept, but the timing of such an address still was uncertain. Truman Is Happy Mr, Trurnan, who fired MacArthur Wednesday because of the general's refusal to go along with presidential policies In the Far East, said in a White statement last night.

"After the general was slapped in the face, the public reaction which fallowed made it Impossible for the President is ,-.» i.-iything else." Wherry told a reporter.
