'Officials said that*is the present basic policy, but how it would be applied will undoubtedly depend on what the Communists 'do and what the American people think about it. In the highest levels of the Defense and State Departments it is recognized, officials privately concede, that popular indignation could force the United States in some circumstances to take action which would either contradict or diverge from its present policy. A clear indication of the administration's attitude came last night in a speed-K sent by Assistant Secretary of State ..John M. Allison to the .Philadelphia Bulletin Forurn at Philadelphia. It was delivered by his assistant, U. Alexis Johnson, who returned 10 days ago from talks w i t h Gen. Matthew B. RIdgeway and other top U. N. military men in Korea. "It is our policy," Allison said, "to confine the conflict in Korea. We do not propose to w i d e n ' t h e j scope of the war. That has been i our policy from the stfirl. Thai j remains our policy. It is up to, the Communists. If "they want to; widen the conflict and enjfulf t h e ' world in a terrible world war. then they must be the 'ones to do it."

' · McClellan had announced before the committee-met - that-no matter which way it voted, the resolution of disapproval would be submitted to the Senate. House Has Approved The House has approved the Triiman plan for reorganizing the scandal-ridden tax bureau and it will go into effect automatically by March 14 unless 49 senators . vote before then'to reject it.
