MacArthur Must Explain Statement and Why He Didn't Tell President WASHINGTON HI — MacArthur will have to cxplnln, if nny explaining is done, why he chose io say "there is a solution" to the Korean \V~nr in a public speech instead or quietly telling President! Trumnn, President-elect Eisenho\v-I or or the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Early on Friday, Dec. 5. ihe news came from Korea thiit ELscn- hower. fulfilling his campaign i promise to go there to look (or-i\ ! solution, had ended his visit tint! didn't think there were nny easy answers. This inny have been a disappointment to anyone who thought Eisenhower could provide a quick way out. That night MacArlhur made his speech before (lie Nntlonnl Association of Manufacturers in New York, He snld he felt sure there is a solution. Eisenhower Imcl gone nil the way to Korea for a solution but said lie found no easy one, This can't be interpreted as an attempt, by MncArthur, nfter learning that Elsenhower wn« offering no golden hopes, to rush In Immediately on a more affirmative note. MncArlhur, had written his speech at least one day before news of Elsenhower's Korean visit broke. Copies of the MacArthur speech were released on Thursday, Dec. 4 —to be published in morning papers of Dec. G. slnco he would deliver it on the night of Dec, 6. It probably had been prepared before Dec. 4 because the NAM Is not in the habit of-Inviting its main speakers at the la-st minute. But apparently only nn accident In^'^lrniriK ( prevented MacArthur from ..getting hatIbh-wlde publicity as" the man who hnd a,solution at the very moment when the whole country was walling to see If Eisen- oAver could come up with one. If the Eisenhower people had wailed just one more dux—until sometime during Saturday, Dec. G —to break the news of his Korean trip, It would have been -MncAr- thur, speaking on the night of Dec. 5, who would have been given prominence in the morning pnpcrs . of Dec. 6. f> As it turned out, the news of the Elsenhower trip got so much prominence in the Dec. 8 morning papers, and required so much Bpace, that MacArthur and his sug- gestion of a solution were burled on the Inside pages of (hose papers which printed the story at all. But MacArthur got back into the hcadlnles quickly when Eisenhower, hearing that MacArthur says there is a solution, arranged to meet him and listen to his ideas. So MacArthur, who told Congress in the spring of 1051 that old soldiers just facie away, hasn't faded away after fill. Feet on Desk Proves Healthy NEW VORK I/PI — Putting your feet on the desk may not be good manners hut It Is hcfiithy, reports the NMioiml Office Furniture Association. A .survey lias sho'Aii that one of every three business men puts his feet on the desk. If more did- so, the ns.soclntlon says, both they nnd their business would be In better shape. One of.the most common «ymp- toms of business worries Is muscular tension, according lo medical authorities. Raising feet to desk level breaks up muscular habit patterns and releases tension on the large muscles at Ihe back of the thigh. The association adds that bust- ress men need not lose dignity by placing their feet on desks. Posture chairs, n spokesman snld, accom-' pltsh the same purpose. Hungry Hornets Pose Problem ROME <m — The bis Orli-nM hornM, Is becoming A serious problem in little Israel. The November plant protection bulletin of ihe food and Agriculture organization of the United Nations reports that this Is because the hornet has nn insatiable appetite. It catches honey bees and oltcn destroys 30 to 50 per cent of the bees In apiaries. It cuts up ripe fruit. Dates can only be snved by covering them with paper bags. Hungry horncls even gnaw the bark of young fruit trees so badly thru lome of them die. Tlie only-poison bait so fnr that has proved highly successful is nol- soncrt meat. With Israel's iimltc meat supply, this costs too much.
