Douglas MncArMiur's appearance before Congress maj come a new account of what the general and President Truman did at Wake Island last October. Until now, the only official version of the short talk between the United Nations commander ui the Far East and the man who later fired him from the Job has come from the President—a formal, generally-phrased statement issued bj Mr. Truman. A mystery grew up about the meeting. An element of the original mystery probably developed out of the fact that the Wake Island session really \vas composed of two meeting—a private two-man talk between the general and the President, then a general huddle attended by the two and the men -,vho accompanied them. kast Wednesday, in relieving MacArthur, the President Issued a series of documents involved in the controversy which led to the firing, many of them In considerable detail. That night the President made • radio address on the matter. No Reference Made In neither the documents nor the speech was there any reference to the Wake island meeting. The statement Mr. Truman released at the conclusion of the Wake Island conferences said that "primarily we talked about the problems in Korea." The President said "we also discussed the steps necesary to bring peace and security to the area as rapidly as possible in accordance with the intent of the resolution of the United Nations General Assembly and in order to get our armed forces out of Korea as soon as their United Nations mission is completed." Then, down near the end of the 700-word statement, the President said:. "I also asked General MacArthur to tell me his ideas on the ways in which the United States can most effectively promote iU policies of Mrt. FDR Resigns Job GENEVA, April 18. (/P) — Mrs. Franklin D.

Basically, the fundamental Is sues between the President and th general seems to Include the ques tlon of th« way to fight the war li Korea and whether the quarrel be tween the Communists and the fre world ts to be settled in Asia or in Europe.
