WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25, 1951 BLYTHEVTLI.E, (AKK.1 COtfRTER NEWS Republicans Ask Bombing of Red China; DemocratsDoubtRidgwayWantsChiang WASHINGTON. April 25. Wi — porters: Republicans called today (or Ihe bombing of,Red China bases. Democrats questioned & report that Lt. Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway had urged use of Chinese Nationalist troops to battle. Hot argument over Ihe conflicl- ing views at President Truman anil Gen. Douglas MacArthur on how to kflght the Korean War hit a new peak In congress as a Communist offensive smashed at Allied lines «ome 10,000 miles away. In the oratorical Infighting here, Senator Wiley (R-Wis) proposed Manchuria base "sanctuaries" about which MacArthur complained before Mr. Truman fired him as Pa- elftc commander. Senator Hlckenlooper (R-Iowa) asserted lhat If the U.N. "ever Is to be victorious in Korea." Chinese Nationalist troops from Formosa must be used in the battle against the Communist foe. MacArlhur has urged the use of Nationalist .troops, air operations over Manchuria and blockade of the China coast. He told Congress it was, his underslandlng that lop military men—including the chiefs of staff—had. shared his views In the past, from a military standpoint. Gen Omar N. Bradley, chairman of the Joint chiefs, has * made it clear, however, he agrees with Mr. Truman such measures for expansion of the Korean fighting might lead to World War III. Gas on Flames MaJ.' Gen, Courtney Whitney MacArthur's chief adviser, tossed L, some flaming gasoline on this con F•'troversy. At a news,conference in New York yesterday he said Ridgway had proposed to the Pentagon that Chinese troops from Formosa be sent Into battle . Whitney said Ridgway. who succeeded MacArthur in the Pacific commands, made this proposal "after analyzing the situation," evidently shortly after he took over field command In Korea. Whitney quoted Ridgway as saying Ihe Nationalists were needed to support his troops' military position, leaving unclear whether they might be sent Into battle (n Korea or on the mainland. Whitney said all senior officers In the Par East favored use Chiang Kai-shek's, troops. Deputy Secretary of Defense Robert Lov- etl. declining to comment on any possible use of Chiang's forces, told a news conference 400 to 500 more men may be assigned to the U.S military mission on Formosa. On the issue of Chiang's troops Senator Kerr (D-Okla). No. I Mac Arthur critic in Congress, told re I'm not chasing rumors from MaJ. Gen. 'Courtney Whitney. M'Artlmr Was the Man "MacArthur was the man who wanted to expand the war. MacArthur was Ihe man released from his command for insubordination and refusal to comply with orders. Let him speak before the Senate committee where he can toll his whole slory and be cross-examined." Senator McMahon (D-Conn) said in an interview Whitney's claim makes it imperative "that ive open up hearings as soon as possible— and I mean open." The Senate Armed Services and probably the Foreign Relations Committees have arranged to hear MacArlhur May 3 at the start of an over-all inquiry into American military and foreign policies 111 Asia. Chairman Russell (D-Ga), who will run the Investigation, favors keeping the hearings closed to the public. Scnalor McFarland of Arizona, the Democralic leader and Senator Taft of Ohio, chairman of Ihe Republican policy commiltee, said Ihey should be open to the public except when military security is involved.

Two Korean Towns Are as Far Apart as War And Peace; Children Beg Along Dusty Paths BV TOM BRADSHAW SEOUL, Korea, April 25 lift— A scant 11 miles of dusty road separate Uijongbu and Seoul but today they were as lar apart as war and peace. The battered (own of Uijongbu was the scene of wild activity this morning amid. . . . (two lines deleted by censor). . . , the roar of road traffic and the planes overhead. Trucks poured down the road from the north overloaded with tired, grimy fighting men and their supplies. Empty trucks and ambulances idled at the Uijongbu railroad station while ammunition and fear were loaded hurriedly In dilapidated boxcars and flat cars. Conscripted Korean workers were doing an unbelievable job in the heat of the withdrawal. Some of their fellows working as ammunition bearers at Die front were less fortunate. Civilians trudged along every road and path to get away from the horrors of battle. An old worn an on crutches sought vainly to stay with her family group. A wrinkled old man used a broken and discarded U.S. Army tent pole for R cane. Children everywhere were begging food from the passing troops. The men in the trucks and jeeps were coaled with a brown layer of dust and many wore masks of dust. At times, dust clouds were so thick over the roads It was Impossible to see for 10 feet. Where the road entered the northern outskirts of Seoul, the pace slackened and the dust disappeared. Inside Seoul, the little shops were open for business with plenty of customers. The big open-air market was bustling with activity. South of the city, the roads a- gnin were clogged with' retreating refugees Seoul' is ofr-llmlLs to U.N troops'not on official business', but a war correspondent can en Ier.
