COURIER MF9TS PAGE FIVE Ridgway Is Latest Old Soldier To Take Slap at White House , By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press Newt Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — Old soldiers may fade away but not always quietly. Three of the most famous generals of recent years — Douglas MacArthur, Omar Bradley and Matthew B. Ridgway — had some critical things to say once they were out of uniform about the way the man in the White House handled the arm ' The latest is Ridgway who, iriout today, makes a slashing at- a Saturday Evening Post articletack • on. the Eisenhower adminis- VOICE Or COMMAND—Corporal Albion D.

MacArthut was the first to sound off, and with the loudest repercussions. After President Truman sacked him, he blasted the President's handling of the.Korean War and kept on-blasting.

Wl — For the first time in nearly four years, Inmates at the State Prison of South- em Michigan will be able to eat with a full set of table utensils. Prison authorities authorized the use of. table knives in the prison dining room. Knives had been banned since the bloody riots of 1952. Inmates were cautioned that the knives should not be sharpened, a trouble which has troubled prison officials in the past. prince Mrs. Mesta added that she is not a "matchmaker." The prince, one of the few living descendants of the Bonaparte family is visiting In America as a guest of honor of Alliance Francaise of Chicago. Wilson to Gel- Key to City Dump At Los Angeles ' WASHINGTO cm':— Secretary of Defense Wilson receives today a gold key to the gate or the Alhambra, Calif., city dump. Rep. Hillings R-Calit, arranged to make the presentation on behalf of city officials and the Chamber of Commerce of Alhanibra. Wilson was trapped temporarily In the city dump when he arrived by helicotper to perform his duties as grand marshal of the Tournament of Roses parade Jan. 2. The heliport Is located in the city dump. Someone had forgotten to unlock the gate. When Wilson later was given a gold key to the city, .he remarked he would rather have a key to the city dump. They took him at his word. . ilcga he ought to be president. The Saturday Evening Posl seems to have an affinity for old generals. That is where Bradley : like Ridgway, raised a cautioning voice. But Bradley was far less critical than Eidgway about Eisenhower's ideas on defense. Bradley had been made chairman, of the Joint Chiefs of Staff by Truman. Even though. Bradley was an old Army. pal of Eisenhower, the new president seemed determined to get rid of as many Truman appointees as possible. He let Bradley retire tt age 60 and replace him as chairman of the Joint Chiefs with Acnh. Arthur W. Radford. On Aug. 19, 1953, four days after he had stepped out" of military life, Bradley's story appeared in the Post. Eisenhower, anxious to fill a Republican campaign promise to cut government spending, began cutting into military spending by five billion dollars. Eisenhower argued this was more defense at less cost. Too Much Economy , Bradley cautioned against letting security be endangered by too much economy. He acknowledged he had made a mistake himself in setting defense spending sights too low. before tlie Korean .War. Eisenhower and Secretary of Defense Wilson did sohie of their economizing at the expense of the Army. Ridgway, while still. Army chief of staff, protested to Congress about this. . Eisenhower didn't seem to appreciate Ridgway's criticism. He called .it "parochial." Ridgway, 60 last year, could have been kept on two years more as chief of staff. Eisenhower. let him retire last year. Now, in the Post .article, Ridgway says the administration's cuts in the Army were "almost entirely" for economic and political reasons, not for military ones—He "pressure" was put on him, ;o persuade him to go along with iie cuts; He says he was baffled when, despite his protests, Eisenhower told Congress the Joint Chiefs of Staff were unanimously behind his military program, which, included cuts In the Army.

Benjamin F. Fairies*, president f the Iron and Steel Institute, an- ounced the survey results yester- ay and.said they torecast the big- est three-year expansion program the Industry's history. For the past 10. years steel com- anies have been expanding at the ate of about 3'2 million tons a ear and have spent seven million ollars on expansion and .modernl- .ztion, Fairless said. The increase in the expansion ate, he said, shows the Industry's onfidence in the economic growth f the nation. The over-all steel industry expan- sion plans were announced a short time after General Motors Corp. disclosed that it intends to spend one billion dollars on expansion and improvements this year. Fairless said many of the steel expansion programs were already under way. He estimated that money spent for expansion this year would amount to about $1,200,000,000. He said: "The new expansion will involve great engineering, industrjan and financial problems. Companies must again seek new sources of ores, open additional new mines and construct new taconite processing facilities. New sources ofr raw materials necessitate construction of new railroads and ships. This is in addition to construction of new blast furnaces, rolling mills and -other finishing Kentucky School Ends Segregation COLUMBIA, Ky.
