PAGE FTVB MacArthur Shows Optimism After Surprise Visit to Front By DON VtHl'IEHEAD A U.S. AIR STRIP IN KOREA, July 21. (If) — General MacArthur 'wjay made his second surprise vls- l^fp the Korean warfront and expressed complete confidence "in ultimate victory." After conferring with his top commanders at Eighth Army headquarters, the general warned, "we will have new heartaches and new setbacks." "But," he added, "I was never more confident of victory—ultimate victory—in my life than I am now." The United Nations commander returned to Tokyo tonight. MacArttuir's flight from Tokyo tr Korea was completely unheralded He was accompanied only by r small, select group of his chief acV visers There was no advance won to the press as on his previous flight to the front on June 29. The secrecy vanished (rom today's trip when he stepped from his plane. He was wearing his familiar cap and suntan uniform, His corn cob pipe was between h'~ teets. He was nnlclilv recoqnized. Met With Officers He conferred with his htghesi ranking officers on the scene the Eighth' Army conducting the ground campaign, and of the advanced headquarters of the Far Bast Air Forces recently moved to Korea from Southern Japan, ^tf'here was speculation that higl 4n> strategy decisions were reached. LI. Gen. Walton H. Walker, commanding the 8th Army, said troop reinforcements were discussed in hip &0 minute conference with MacArthur. Tills gave rise to hopes that badly needed troops may not be fai away. "Feeling of Optimism" Just before leaving Korea, MacArthur told reporters: "T have a feeling of optimism after this inspection today." He said It "completely confirmed' the estimate he made last week to President Truman. In that statement he said the quick and valiant action of the 8th Army had "boughl the precious time necessary to build a secure base" and "ended the chance for victory by the Nortli Korean forces." Today, speaking deliberately MacArthur elaborated: "That does not mean that victory passes to us Instantly or without a long hard row and the most difficult struggle. That we will have ne« heartaches and new setbacks is inherent in the situation, but I was never more confident of victory —ultimate victory—in my life, than I am now." , . - ' Cordial (o Newsmen MacArthur spoke cordially to f wsmen who were standing beside t plane, Bataan. awaiting him. If has been displeased with news coverage from Korea in any way, he gave no hint. His appearance and health were a surprise to one who was seeing him for the first time at close range His face looks younger than his 10 years. He showed no worry Or strain although he had had a strenuous day. MacArthur lauded the work of the 8th Army commanders, the South Korean forces, the Air" Force and the Navy. He said Walker and his division commanders are "handling the situation with marked energy and superior efficiency." Livestock NATIONAL STOCKYARDS, 111., July 27.

On the brighter side, Churchill expressed the opinion that the United States still has "a measureless superiority' 'over of the world in atom bomb stocks.

"The extraordinary : efforts which they are making to obtain even small quantities of uranium seem to Justify the hope- ! fill view. I "If this be true, there can be no doubt, that, the United.
