Lodge in-Mass) had done Eisenhower "a tremendous disservice by bringing him into a contest where it is impossible for him to let the people know how he stands."

Lee declared the Chinese Nationalists "are tattooing our captured personnel. After the anti-Communist slogan is tattooed on their bodies, it would be easier to tntim idate them."

Command. There was no immediate explanation of Lee's remarks. Libby did not answer Lee's blast on "instructors" from Formosa.
