MacArthur said in an article in Life magazine in 1936 that MacLean and Burgess "were undoubtedly'links in the chain to our enemy in Korea througli Peking by way of Moscow." He charged that President Harry S. Truman had refused to investi-| gate his warnings about such leaks because the U. S. government akeady was sensitive over the Alger Hiss and Harry De.X' ter ^Vhite spy scandals in Wash ington. Observers said SfacArthur probably resented most deeply the British Foreign Office's laX' ness in the MacLean-Burgess case which became apparent when the facts came out after their defection. All three men involved had been openly anti- American and pro-Russian but received rapid promotions in the British Foreign Service. The general also was quoted as saying be could have won the war in Korea in 10 days by droppujg 30 to 50 atomic bombs on Communist Chinese forces and using hundreds of tfaoU' sands of Nationalist Chinese troops to spring a strategic mouse - trap on the million- man Communist force. MacArthur also advocated denying the Communists resupply and pre-| venting another invasion of'Ko rea "for at least 60 years" byj sowing a massive cobalt radiation belt across the Asian Peninsula.

The BriSsh Foreign Office de dined comment on MacArthur's sweeping indictment, but the British Embassy in Washington immediately denied any betrayal in Korea by its government. We had commonwealth forces in Korea at the time so obviously we had no interest whatever in leaking American plans to the Chinese," an embassy spokesman said. Earl Attlee, who was British prime minister at the time of the Korean War, today described the charges as "perfect nonsense." Emanuel Shinwell British defense minister at the time, said: "I can hardly believe that Gen. MacArthur said anything so foolish. "I can remember that when Gen. MacArthur wanted to bomb the Cliinese at the Yalu River, we protested most strongly because we felt it would bring the Chinese into the war. The prime minister, Mr. Attlee, went to see President Truman and Truman dismissed MacArthur," Shin- well said. MacArthur, who commanded United Nations forces in Korea until he was reheved in 1951 for publicly opposing the Truman administration's limited war policy, also was reported to have castigated Presidents Harry S Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower and generals George Marshall, Maxwell Taylor and Matthew Ridgway. He also impUed former Secretary of State Dean Acheson re strained Truman's instincts for an all - out war in Korea. The U. S. State Department declined comment and said it probably never would say anything about the charges. Truman, Eisenhower and Ridgway had no comment on the charges attributed to MacArthur in the interviews obtained 10 years ago. MacArthur told Lucas that every message he ever sent to Washington was shown to the British by the State Department and that within 48 hours was relayed to the Chinese Communists.

Atxef Jay NM'I, Jr. Jack East Heppy Birthday 11 E. Stat* Ph. PY 3-2SK Body of Gen. MacArthur lay in state By H. D. QUIGC United Press Intemattenal WASHINGTON (UPI)— The city of Washington paid its requiem farewell to General of the Army Douglas MacArthur, S4, today as his body was flown to its final resting place in Norfolk. Va. The mihtary hero will be buried Saturday in Virginia in an ancient) buildmg dedicated as a memorial to him and his family. MacArthur's body, in a steel- gray casket decked with the flag for which he fought, had lain in state in the great rotunda of his nation's capital for 21 hours—an honor accorded to only two other military leaders in the past. An estimated 75, 000 persons had filed silently past for a final farewell. Precisely at noon the rotunda doors swung shut. His widow and son and members of Congress gathered in silence for the departure. An old friend, former House Speaker Joseph W, Martin Jr., R-Mass., arrived before other House members and took a seat in a shadow of the rotunda as the Coast Guard band played 'Abide With Me." The ceremonial procession crossed the Potomac River to Washington National Airport where President Johnson gave his former war commander his own formal farewell. Then an Air Force C130 Her- ctiles carried the body on the flight to the Norfolk Naval Air Station. Most of the House members stood on the Capitol's east front portico as the casket was removed from the rotunda. Among the mourners today was Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy and six of bis children. Kennedy stopped for a long minute at the bier where less than five months ago his brother, slain President John F. Kennedy, lay in a place of honor on the same black catafalque. Americans were joined in the mourning by many foreigners whose lands MacArthur helped to defend in war. From Far East areas where he served much of his more than half a century of military service were seen groups of young military officers from Indonesia, Korea, Viet Nam and Pakistan. Groups also were seen FINAL TKIBOTE—The final resting place of the late Gen.' Douglas MacArthiur is" the recently completed MacArthur Memorial in Norfolk, Va. In appearance, the memorial is not unlike the majestic Hotel des Invalides, the tomb of Napoleon in Paris. The memorial was converted from the city's historic-old courthouse. i from Greece and Peru. The pleasant weather today contrasted with intermittently heavy showers Wednesday as MacArthur was taken in a solemn procession to the Capitol. President Johnson planned to be on hand at Washington Na tional Airport at 2 p.m. EST today when MacArthur's body was to be flown to Norfolk. But the White House declined to say whether the Chief Executive would attend Saturday's burial ceremonies. The casket, due to arrive at Norfolk at 3:30 p.m., was to be borne by horse - drawn caisson through the streets of the Vu:- ginia city — birthplace of his mother and her longtime home —to the memoriaL The body will lie in state in the memorial until shortly before funeral services at St. Paul's Episcopal Church at 11 a.m. Saturday. Johnson led official Washington in paying homage to MacArthur Wednesday in the solemn ceremonies reserved for America's most illustrious sons. Bern* On Caisson The general's flag - draped coffin was borne to the Capitol on a horse • drawn caisson to the sound of muffled drums. Behind the caisson came the traditional riderless horse, symbol of a fallen chief. Despite the steady April rain, police estimated that about 100,000 persons lined the broad avenues of the capital to watch the cortege. The same procession was being repeated today, with the casket carried by caisson up Constitution Avenue to a point between 12th and 14th Streets for transfer to a hearse for the drive to the airport. Fifty Air Force FlOl VooDoo jet fighters, grounded by the weather Wednesday, were to fly over the procession today to honor the old soldier.
