The Reds finally agreed find escorted .pDdcl to the gnlc at-9:30 p. in. The general explained his c;ip- -ure came about shortly after he was lured to the gate of Compound 76 at 2 p. in. Wednesday by request for an Interview from the ".spokesman'* of the compound. He said the interview consisted of tin: usual Communist complaints.

The Reds rtemandcc the right to orgnnlzc an associa won't campaign for the Republican presidential nomination appeared today to havo left some of hLs supporters up in Ihe air about future developments. Hours after Eisenhower said in Norway Ihnt he won't strive for the nomination, Gov. Thomas E. Dcwey of New York told a television audience yesterday he bo- llcvcs the general will declare his position on major issues when he returns to this country early Jn June. But Dcwey could offer his qucs- ioners no assurance the general make any speeches beyond scheduled homecoming address at tbttune, Kan, June 4.

Although he didn't say so In as :miny words, Duff made it ctcra he :hlnk.s Eisenhower ought lo speak out on the major issues shortly lifter his return to this country. Whatever he says or doesn't sa> about domestic problems, Eisen lower Is expected to mtikc his for cign policy views clear in hi Abilene address or in stibsequen talks which he is expected to makt Dewey said he believes Elscn hower Is the only candidate wh can hankte this country's tlcklls! foreign policy problem in the nex four years and still keep the natio .solvent. Dcwey, unsuccessful GOP presidential nominee in 1044 und 1948, niso said the Democrats would not be able again to frighten the farmers just before the election as. he said, they did in 1948. Without going into details he said they "pulled the plug out from under corn, hogs and beans" Iti nn effort to "convince; the farmers what would happen if the Republicans got In." The New York governor, who denies he seeks any Cabinet post but still is regHi-deel as a possible Eisenhower appointee for secretary of state, discussed foreign policy issues with Secretary of State Dean Achcson and Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter Saturday night, during a break In the Gridiron Club dinner here. Casual Meeting Dewey Indicated in yesterday's television interview that this was merely a casual meeting. However, this reporter observed that Dewey spent much more time with Achcson and Frankfurter than he indicated lo the TV audience. Also, there was no one else to be seen In the room except a hotel attendant nnd two reporters who wandered in by accident and rc- Ithin five feet of him and onversntion was "as secret as we'd lK*ld it in Macy's window."

MacArthur Aide Says General Knew Reds Once Were Beaten BALTIMORE UB—One of Oco. Douglu MacArchur's former high aides s*ys that the ousted Far Eastern commander knew from an Intercepted enemy message thai h« had the Communist! just about knocked out in Korea. As a result, said Brig. Gen. Bonner Fellers (ret), MacArthur proposed that the Reds "talk truce or cease-fire." Fellers, former chief of psychological warfare for MacArthur, told of the mysterious note In a recorded speech last night. The talk had been given earlier at an American Legion meeting here. It was rebroadcast in part over radio it»- LONG STORY—Although Ram Nath was born In 1910, as evidenced by the 26 - foot - long Sanskrit birth certificate above, he recently retired from Ford Motor Co., Detroit, Mich., after 23 years of service. Nath cleared things up by explaining the East Indian year of 1D10 corresponds to the English year 1884. Arthur estimated about 100.000 persons were scattered along the 15' mile route from the Ridgway man sion to the airport. There was little of the pomp am ceremony that marked MacAr Ihur's departure In April last year after the veteran of Corregldor had been fired by President Truman. Ridgwny. in summer uniform shook hands with his Japanese ser vants and said: "Goodbye, goodbye. We'll bi back to see you some day." A Japanese police band and i U.S. Navy band played as th Ridgways entered the black lim ouslne waiting to take them to th airport.

In cooperation with Ridgway Leaves Japan for New Command in Western Europe and. after a series of translation oul-ims Dodd was finally released. By OLEN CI.KMKNTS | TOKYO f^v—Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway, who blocked the Communists in Korea and engineered the end of the Allied occupation of Japan, left today on hts way to Europe to succeed Gen.
