Hunt (D-Wyo.) proposed an immediate extra-ordinary session of the senate armed services committee Friday to look into Gen. Douglas MacArUiur's views on ending the Korean war. President Truman, with some barbed remarks about both MacArthur and President-elect Eisenhower, rejected a senator's suggestion .Thursday that he. call the two men to the White House to discuss Korea. Truman said, among other things, he doubts MacAvthur lias hit upon any new way to peace, and that he still thinks Eisenhower's campaign announcement that he would go to the Korean war zone was demagoguery. Truman's words drew some GOP cries of "arrogant" and "slanderous" on Capitol Hill. .Hunt, taking no part in that row, told a reporter: ... "I would like to see Sen. Russell (D-Ga.) call either or both generals to Capitol Hill to brief the armed services committee." Out of City Russell, thc committee chairman who presided over the 195! senate investigation of the President's firing of MacArthur as allied commander ini-Korea and the Far East, is out of the city.
