PATIENTS AT STATE HOSPITAL LEARN SHORTHAND Acheson Charges Ike Recommended Korean Withdrawal WASHINGTON (UP) - A sizzling dispute raged today between the White House and former Secretary of State Dean Acheson over whether President Eisenhower recommended in 1947 that American troops be pulled out of Korea. Acheson, in a rare outburst against a government leader, charged angrily Wednesday night that Eisenhower proposed the withdrawal while he was Army chief of staff in 1947. He said the State Department opposed the recommendation "but eventually bowed to the insistent views of the military." Presidential Press Secretary .lames C. Hagerty retorted that Acheson's statement "missed the entire point." He said the troop pullout—which was made in 1949 —was a "political decision, not a military one." Acheson's remarks, issued through the Democratic N'ational Committee, were prompted by remarks Eisenhower made while defending his budget in a televised speech Tuuesday night.
