Washington Douglas MacArthur declared Wednesday that President Trumans orders silencing pertinent witnesses have denied a senate inquiry the full facts on his dismissal But MacArthur said he doesnt care to testify again himself MacArthur rapped at the presi dent in rejecting by letter an in vitation to appear again before the senate armed services and foreign relations committees investigating his ouster He contended too that some of the documentary evidence sub mitted to the senators had been lifted out of context so that it was misleading and said there was lack of accuracy in paraphras ing Many of the documents given to the senators in connection with the inquiry have been that is submitted in a rewritten summary form rather than as the original documents The reason is that the original documents were transmitted by radio in code Release of the ac tual texts might help a potential enemy to decipher the U S codes MacArthur testified for 3 days when the inquiry began last May
