PAGE TWO BLYTHEVnXB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS- General Indicates Spread of War Not Solution to Peace (Continued from Page 1) him Into the front lines. The military and the Secret Service were careful to see that he did not go beyond division headquarters — usually three or four miles from th« actual biittlellne — for security reasons. The greatest risks appeared to be in the momitaln hopping in small planes. These facts soon became : apparent to those who accompanied Elsenhower: 1. There Is strong sentiment among some U. S. military men here and among the South Koreans for an all-out offensive to smash the military power of Red China and North Korea. They argue privately this Is the best and surest way to force, peace In the Far East. 2. Some military men want to use Chinese Nationalist troopsjfrom Formosa In the fighting, although this Ls opposed by the Koreans who . «ay,«uch a move would shift China's civil war to Korean soil. 3. The U. S. Eighth Ariny Is •trong and confident It can stop »ny Chinese offensive even though the'enerhy has close to one million . troops facing trie U. N. forces. But •entlrnent for an all-out U. N. drive U' tempered by the caution of some who .think the United Slates isn't yet':'strong enough militarily to gpand the ; war. • . Little Faith In Talks 4.' There appears to be little faith Ih tills part of the world that the'Panmuhjom-peace talks will produce an armistice. ' . 5. .Some, fighting,men believe it Is better to go all-out against the Ch'inese now and lake temporarily heavy losses to gain victory rather than cont! nue .the p resent s la 1 ema te with Its growing toll of dead and . wounded. Others —,, and they are mostly the Infantrymen who would have', to" carry the load of buttle -rdon't agree so readily. . 6. The Chinese,have well-equipped arid well-supplied armies dug Into heavily fortified mountain positions—and reports would indicate no break In , their morale despite terrific battle losses. . ,7. On the other side, the South Korean' army, has .shown astonlsh- in» Improvement In leadership, efficiency 'and . fighting; skill since that day two.years ago when the ChiBese entered the war and routed •he South Koreans. Where Amer- caa 'flghilng men once shrugged Uwtr shoulders helplessly over the fighting tiuality of the ROKS.'they now praise them lavishly. •toenhower gave every Inrtlca- Uon-thit a» President he would .see .to'H'thatj the 8outh 1 Korean army* • !• made stronger and stronger. While .talking yesterday ; to;Lt.' Oen.' ChungII Kwon,'deputy i commander .of the U..8. 'Ninth Corps, trie.' general congratclatcd him.on the ROK army and then aalil: "As far u I'm concerned, we'll »et:K ailot bigger and .better." •arller, Chung had told a reporter h« would like to see a United Nations drive, to the Yalu "with the leading the way." And ROK MaJ. Qen. Bak Lira Rung.said: "We would like to attack and push on north If the higher headquarters would' permit." But these same sentiments were voiced by some-.American officers and enlisted men. too, and without doubt Elsenhower Is aware of this feeling In the Army which he soon will head as commander In chief. On every trip • outside Eighth Army headquarters, Eisenhower wns accompanied by those who had tlown from New York in his party. • ..They were; Wilson, Bradley, Brownell, Air Force .MaJ. Gen. Roger Ramey, MaJ. Oen. Wilton B. Persons (ret.), who will be Elsenhow- er's White House assistant; Secret Service Agent. James Rowley in charge of the White House detail, and Lt.

The security surrounding Elsen- liowcr's arrival was so tight that soldiers and most officers In com- aat units didn't know the genera) was In Korea until he arrived at heir headquarters. All across the Pacific the pattern of surface and nlr travel was suoh that the general's plane was never more than 100 miles from a ship or plane. RHEE (Continued from Page U prepared a seven point proposal to present to Eisenhower asking; among other things, unification of Korea, strengthening the ROK fo-ces, and economic nid. ' Un Wednesday, the day after Els- enhower arrived, the U. S. President-elect first conferred with Rheo In private for 20 minutes.

At tonight's return' visit ty Els- enhower. Rhce Introduced each or his Cabinet ministers who hurt waited all day at the Rhee mansion. Relations Cool Prior to Elsenhower's visit late today : there was mounting speculation that relations between the two leaders were somewhat cool. This speculation was heightened by Elsenhower's failure to appear in public before tho Korean people during his three day sUiy. A big mass meeting In Eisenhower's honor hnrt been held in Seoul \Thursclny = but Eisenhower did not^fippeaV. lit was ' not reported ' whether others who accompanied Elsen- hower from the U. S., such as Defense ,Secretary — designate Charles E. Wilson attended today's meeting. A Rhce spokesman quoted Els- enhower as saying ho was pleased to b,e introduced to ench of the cabinet ministers. P. H. Shintcky, speaker of the South Korean National Assembly who had been at the Rhee mansion earlier today, departed before Elsenhower showed up.

The first itme reporters saw Eisenhower on the trip was at breakfast next day, Dec. 2, He '- came Into the officer's niess about 7:30 n. m. looking rested and In top condition. He grinned and waved to thoss in the room. Elsenhower's plane took off at 2 p. m. fro I wo for the 1,700-mile flight to Seoul. The overnight stop at two had been planned so that he would arrive In Korea after nightfall. It was 7:57 p. m. Korea time (4:57 a. m., Tuesday CST) when the general's plane touched down on the Icy runway near Seoul. It had spanned the 10,838 miles between New York and Korea In 47 hours and 15 minutes flying time. The temperature .was 10 degrees above zero. •Aimed 1 guards and Secret Service agents waited on the field- but.there was no welcoming committee, Gen. Mark Clark had re' malned at the Eighth Army headquarters In Seoul with Oen. James Van Fleet. The only newsmen present were those In the Elsen- hower party. Their 'plcne had landed 20 minutes ahead of the general's, • : : Only Rhee Knew Only President Eyngmnn Rhee of the Republic of Korea had any notice of the general's arrival. But there was plenty of evidence the President-elect'wns expected. Banners and arches across the streets carried messages of welcome—and appeal. At Eighth Army headquarters, Eisenhower was warmly welcomed by Clark and Van Fleet—and'the first thing he asked for was hot chocolate. He retired a short time after dinner. Tile general was up early on Dec. 3 nnd spent the morning being briefed on the KIrean situation By Clark. .Van Fleet and others. Clark:.Inter' told this reporter: "We gave him the whole story In- eluding the problems that He ahead for us." He didn't say what the problems were. After lunch, Elsenhower was flown In an L-18 "puddle-jumper" plane to an airfield where' he visited a fighter interceptor squadron and the 67lh tactical reconnaissance wing headquarters. This time he^'ore'regular army Issue winter clothing—with no-Insignia.
