Battleground By HUGH BAILLIE President of the United Press World Copyright 1950 by United Press Frankfurt Germany Douglas MacArthur said Friday that his United Nations forces are fighting in Ko rea against military odds without precedent in history and warned that failure to meet the issue there will leave it to be fought and possibly lost on the battlefields of Europe MacArthur cabled me from Tokyo in response to a mes sage I had sent to him onTuesday from Paris I told the general that after conferring with European statesmen I had found they saw war in Asia as a night mare xretarding thesuccessful or ganization of European defense In his reply MacArthur de claredHhat from the beginning ev ery effort had been made to fur ther the Universal desire that the Korean warbe He said that throughout the war against the NorthKoreans we meticulously respected and held inviolate the international boun dary and I at no time even rec ommended that authority be granted to retaliate behind it Critical of Reasoning Asto opinion in Europe the general said Theie a general failure intentional or from mis information to comprehend the mission prescribed for this com mand byresolutions of the United Nations of which theirgovern ments were joint architects and directors or fairly to recognize that in success or adversity this command has proceeded unerring ly in compliance with controlling policies and directives MacArthur said he could only attribute such comment to a somewhat selfish though most shortsighted viewpoint European he said the welfare and security of Europe is naturally paramount He has no fear of attack from the west solely from the east It is not unusual therefore that he sees in every dedication of friendly resource toward the sta bilization of Asia a subtraction from that available for the bet terment and security of Europe This of course is fallacious reasoning Eastand West Alike Any breach of freedom in the east carries with it a sinister threat to freedom in the west The issue is a global one and failure to comprehend this fact carries the germs of freedoms ultimate destruction If the fight is not waged with courage and invincible determination to meet the challenge here it will indeed be fought and possibly lost on the battlefields of Europe Every strategic and tactical movement made by the Unit ed Nations command has been in complete accordance with United Nations resolutions and in compliance the directive under which I operate every ma jor step having reported and fully He said he had received no suggestion from anyauthoritative source that UnitedNations troops should stop at the 38th parallel at Pyongyang or any other line short of ttie Manchurian border Itis historically inaccurate he attributeany degree of responsibility for the onslaught of the Chinese communistarmies to the strategic course of the cam paign itself The decision by the Chinese communist leaders to wage war against1 the United Nations could only have been a basic one long premeditated and carried into ex ecution as a direct result of the defeat of their satellite North Ko rean armies 2nd Division Pulls Itself Together By TOM LAMBERT With US 2nd Division The battered butvaliant Ameri can 2nd division pulled itself to gether Friday after 3 days of sav age fighting against Chinese com munists in which nearly every man of the division including its commanding general saw action The 2nds superb stand along the Chongchon river and at Kunu and its skillful hardfought delaying actions probably averted what might have been a disaster or at least serious consequences f o r other American units on the now crumblednorthwest front A Chinese breakthrough earli er at Kunu or across the Chong chon could have enabled the reds to swing in behind other Ameri can forces before they could have withdrawn toa new line north of the former red capital of Pyong yang In delaying the reds the 2nd division took the heaviest blows of any American unit on this front Draft Call for 50000 Iowas February Share About 1000 Washington army Fri day issued a draft call for 50000 men in February The February call brings the to tal of army draft requests to 300r 000 men since September The 1st callwas for 50000 men in September It was followed by a call for the same number inOc tober The figure was raised for November but was dropped to 40000 for December and40000 for January One reason forthe drop in calls it was that the Ko reanwar was absorbingso much of officer strength that therewas a shortage of of ficerstotrain men On the basis of previous calls Fridays national draft call would mean that Iowa wouldhave to supply about 1000 men The state normally provides about 2 per cent of the national total In the the peninsulas mountainous spinerrr United
