II The FotfcMtal Diaries MacArthur in 1945 Douglas MacArthur was an important and controversial figure to the military leaders in the final year of the w’ar. Under the date of Nov. 22. 1944. Forrestal entered in his diary a long memorandum, ' MacArthur Leyte, by Bort Andrews," which had been supplied k> him by the Washington correspondent of the New York Herald Tribune after the latter's return from a trip to the Philippines. Andrews was frank, and so. apparently, MacArthur had been.. In the words of the Andrews report. Ridgway Urges Compromise Site For Truce Talks TOKYO, Sept. 27 (UR* Gen, Matthew B. Ridgway proposed today that the Korean armistice talks be resumed "as early as possible" at a tiny village in the middle of no-man’s-Iand. The Supreme United Nations Commander intervened directly in attempt to get the truce talks Stung again after UN and communist liaison officers found themselves deadlocked. Ridgway addressed his proposals to Gen. Kim Ii Sung, North Korean premier and commander-in-chief, and Gen. Beng Teh-Huai, Chinese commander in Korea. "I believe this proposal provides for arrangements that can ta* mutually satisfactory to both jddes," Ridgway told the Red *w>nimanders. The communist generals already have rejected on? earlier Ridgway proposal to shift the talks from Kaesong. However, Ridgway on that occasion did not specify any particular alternative site. The UN commander's new' note specifically suggested that: 1. The truce talks be resumed “as early as posaible" In the jdcinity of Songhyon. eight miles Southeast of Kaesong and approximately midway between the battle lines on the Western Front northwest of Seoul. 2. Both sides agree to keep their armed troops away from the meeting place and "abstain from any hostile acts or exercise of authority over members of the other side" while en route to or from or during meetings. 3. The truce delegations first discuss any necessary "physical trad security arrangements." then return to the problem of fixing a cease-fire line and buffer lone across Korea. 4. Liaison officers confer to "discuss immediate erection of the necessary’ physical facilities." Ridgway’s proposal was in the nature of a compromise. For the UN. it w'ould get the cease-fire talks away from Kaesong, which is behind the communist lines. Army Defends Its Removal of Crosses Above GI Graves HONOLULU. T. H.. Sept. 28. (UR) The Army today defended its removal of white crosses marking the graves of 13.008 American war dead buried on the "Hill of %crifice" Hawaii's National Memorial Cemetery in Punchbowl Crater overlooking Honolulu. Uprooting of the crosses Mon "(MacArthur) said that every mistake that supposedly intelligent men could make has been made in this war. The North African operation was absolutely useless, yet all the available strength of Great Britain and the United States was thrown into the task." B b The general, as he is depicted in ( the report, was full of two ideas: that the Pacific war had been "starved" in the interests of Europe. and that whereas the Mac-Arthur-Nimits strategy in the Pacific was skillfully to hit the enemy ‘where he ain t," the European I strategy urns to hammer stupidly! against the enemy's strongest I points. "Patton's army," Andrews1 paraphrased the general, "which j is tr ying to batter its way through; the Vosges in the Luneville-Bac- j carat sector, can't do it. He repeared they can't do it. No army could do it. . . The Chinese situation is disastrous. It is the bitter j I fruit of our decision to concentrate j I our full strength against Germany . . . .He said that if he had been given Just a portion of the force which invaded North Africa he could have retaken the Philippines I in three months because at that; time the Japanese were not i ready." Importance of the Pacific The report goes on to expand J the MacArthur views: "He lashed] out in a general indictment of Washington, asserting that they’ are fighting this war as they fought the last war. He said that most of them have never been in the front lines and that they aren t rotating field officers back into Washington. . . . "In continuing his criticism of Washington he said that the history of the world will be written in the Pacific for the next ten thousand years. He said we made the same old mistake of intervening in Eu* j ropean quarrels w'htch we can't hope to solve because they are insoluble. He said that Europe is a dying system. It is worn out and run down and will become an economic and industrial hegemony of Soviet Russia. . . .The lands touching the Pacific with their billions of inhabitants will determine the ’ course of history t repeating I for] the next ten thousand years. . . .

WASHINGTON Sept 27 (UP* William M. Boyle, Jr.. said today it is "not only proper" but the "duty" of Democratic National Committee employes to ar-• auge appointments for people with government official*. The National Committee chairman, in a statement prepared for the senate investigating subcommittee. dismissed as "unfounded. distorted and false" charges by the St Ixonia Post* Dispatch that h* received $1,500 in tees from the American Lithofold Corp for help in arranging an RFC loan. His seven-page statement confirmed the testimony yesterday of Attorney Max Sisk intl that he sold his law practice to Siskind for $150,000. But it added: "At no time and on no occasion have I since April, 1949, engaged in the private practice oft law, nor have I in particular par-1 ticipated in the prosecution of j any business which was in the office prior to April 1949 or any business that has come into the* office of Mr. Siskind since that1 time." Boyle said his arrangements for j Siskind to take over his law clients m April, 1949, when he, went on the party payroll, were I worked out "just as has been done many tunes in .similar situations."

He admitted making an appointment with Harley Hiae, then RFC chai! man, for Lithofold of-1 finals in February 1949, as earlier testimony has shown. But he j san! he had nothing to do with the firm’s loan applications. Boyle was Lithofold* Washington attorney at the time ami was serving as unpaid vice-chairman of the Democratic Committee.
