Mac Arthur was interrupted for nearly a minute. He hnd prru'iusly rjpsialtrl the. four i)oinIs of his strategic policy for (he Orient, They were, he said: 1. An economic blockade of China, 2. A naval blockade of (he China coast, 3. Removal of the restrictions on aerial reconnaissance over China. I. A removal of the, restrictions cm the ground forces; of Nationalist China "with logistical supurt from us." Tills last meanL using the Nationalist troops of Chiang Kai-shek with the United States furnishing .suplies. Cheering halted him briefly when he came to both the second and htrd points. MacArthur said of his policy "(or Ills 1 have been severly criticized n many quarters, principally a- bioad." But, he said, he never icard any criticism of these views from "responsible military author* Hies, including our own Joint Chiefs of Staff." MacArthur said he had called for reinforcements In Korea but was' informed they were, not available. He said he had warned that unless permission was granted to bomb Mnnchuhan bases, blockade the China coast and use Nationalist forces on Formosa the position ol his command "forbade victory" hi Korea. MacArthur concluded with a recollection of Ihe old soldier ballad ::Old Soldiers Never Die, They Ju&t Fade Away," He said lie was closing out 5/ 1 years of military service with that ballad in mind. "I now close my military career and ju.-t fade away." he, said dramatically. "An old soldier who tried to do his duty as God gave him the light to see that duty." MacArthur finished speaking at. 1:10 p.m. His address lasted 36 minutes. Sen. Vandenberg Was Foreign Policy Expert (Continued from Central Sixth-Graders Send Letter Scrapbook to Gen. MacArthur By KUTH LEE I School Correspondent) lu the radio and television audience which heard Gen. Douglas MacArthrr address Congress today were thousands of school children. Thirty of the mast attentive onlookers were the sixth graders in Mrs, Lillian Frank's room at Central School here, who have just mailed a scrapbcok to the general. Accompanying the scrapbook was a letter composed by Anice Chandler and signed by every member of the class, including the teacher. It read a* follows: "Dear . General MacArthur, . "When any of iis do anything hi school that our teacher does not, approve of, she calls us In /for a private talk and we try (o decide together what is right. Then, if necessary, she telLs us and we obey! We have been taught that this is the democratic way of ife.
