MacArthur Firing
Explains Truman
By the Associated I’rciw
President Truman explained to
the world Wednesday night that he
tiled General Douglas MarArthur
because the Far Eastern command
er's policies carried a "very grave
risk" ot starting World War III.
In a radio and television broad
cast from the White House, Mr.
Truman declared "we are trying to
prevent a world war not to start
He took sharp issue with the
MacArthur school of thought
which advocates the bombing of
Communist bases across the Man

House Votes Against Draft Deferment on Basis
Of Aptitude Test Only; Hawk Explains Details
The House voted Wednesday
against the idea of deferring col
lege students from the draft .sole
ly on the basis of aptitude tests.
By voice vote, the House adopted
I an amendment to the pending
Draft-Military Training BUI. Under
the amendment, students may take
the tests but they are to be used by
I local draft boards only as addition
al information in determining the
| draft status of the students.
Selective Service had announced
that college students might seek
draft deferment based on their
| scholastic standing or by making
i a scoic of 70 on the aptitude tests.
* * *
Students need not get alarmed
about this news, paid Ray Hawk,.
director of men's affairs, when
contacted about the action of the I
House on the draft bill amend
If such an amendment were also j
passed by the Senate and became ;
law, Hawk said, state draft author
ities would probably instruct their
local boards as to the course of
action in deferments regarding the j
aptitude test scores, which might*
result in some inconsistency.
However, He added, since the.
House evidently did not take any j
action against having good schol-'
astic standing defer college stu- j
dents, the major importance of the ;
draft bill has not been affected.
Furthermore, Hawk said, this is'
merely a House action, anti is fat*
from law. He said that were it to
become so, most students who aie
of good scholastic standing would
still be oeterrea. since most cf
those who would receive 70 or
above would be students of good
At any rate, Hawk stressed, wo
can have no idea at the present ct
what will be decided. He said that
some such action as that taken by
the House was to be expected, a ♦
evidenced by the adverse criticism
the college draft deferment has re
ceived. He again stressed, however,
that students need not fear that
this action will have a dangerous
effect on the present situation.
Dull and Schleicher Okay MacArthur's Ouster
(Editor's Note: Tha Emerald
here presents exclusive Inter
views with two University pro
fessors noted for their work In
political science, who present
their views of President Tru
man's firing of Gen. Mac.Arthur.)
By Phil Bettens
Our prestige in Asia has fallen,
but pro-American sentiment in
Europe is high following Gen.
Douglas MacArthur's dismissal
Tuesday night by President Tru
man. That’s the opinion of Paul S.
Dull, associate professor of politi
cal science and history.
“For years, MacArthur has main
tained that ‘if we lose Asia, we
lose the world',” Dull said. "This
isn't true. We can win or lose
against Russia in Europe, and it
must be held.” He pointed out that
Russians would like very much to
get us involved in a bleeding war
^ with China.
Truman Had Authority
Dull pointed out that President
Truman acted under his constitu
tional authority in dismissing Mac
'The constitution is quite speci
fic as to who issues orders,” he
stated. “The President is the. com
mander-in-chief of the armed
“Even if MacArthur were right
on his policy iileas, he whs com
pletely wrong in trying to carry
them out on his own," Dull said.
"He’s too much influenced by Asia
—has been surrounded by it too
The effect of his removal will I
be "terrific" in Japan. Dull feels.
"The Japanese built him up as
a dominant figure, whom they
blindly obeyed," he said. "But now,
they will be disillusioned; they will
misinterpret the event. His leav
ing will cause despair there and
may make Communism's job a lit
tle easier."
Question Posed
But, as Dull sees it, there was
a choice to be made: should we
throw our strength to Japan , or
to Europe ?
"Our primary concern and our
children’s primary concern in days
to come is going to be Asia; but
not as a military threat for another
10 or 20 years,” he said. "We can
still settle Europe first, and then
turn to Asia."
He added that he strongly fav
ored MacArthur’s coming to the
United States and engaging in a
debate on policy.
"He had a terrific military job
in Korea," Dull said. “He had to
try and preserve American lives
and equipment; under these condl
tions, lie couldn't wage a success
ful campaign."
But, he explained, Korea is the
secondary front in the world mili
tary situation, and MacArthur's
role was to do as he was told.
"He should have lesigned,” Dull
said, "and come back home to push j
his point of view; there are many I
people who would have supported I
“It is unfortunate that this
whole thing; ever came up," he
commented. "We need harmony
now; we're in one of the most
critical periods of our history."
Personally. Dull feels that the
MacArthur affair is going to cause
a tremendous debate from now on.
And Dull has his own plans for
coping with this great controversy.
"I’m going fishing this week
end.” he said. "I’m not going to
look at a newspaper or turn on the 1
radio until I get back Monday."

General MacArthur's removal
from his command in Asia is "more
dramatic than significant,” ac
cording to Charles P. Schleicher,
professor of political science.
"Many believe that he has built
up an 'Emperor' complex among
the Japanese," he said. “His re
moval should shock Japan, and
may have an unsettling effect.
"But if he has become a ‘second
Emperor’ in their eyes, an intoler-!
able situation exists, and it is well
to bring it out in the open," he
Schelicher pointed out there are.
three points to consider in evaluat
ing- MacArthur’s dismissal:
1. The general international re
sponse. MacArthur not only an
American general, but also 'com
mander of the United Nations
troops in Korea and the representa
tive of the Allied powers in Japan.
"All the Allies—with the pos
sible exception of Australia—have
favored his removal," Schleicher
2. The political significance. This
event will show Europe that we in
tend to concentrate our efforts
in Europe, rather than follow "the
McCarthy-MacArthur line of an
all-out Eastern conflict."
3. Relations between the mili
tary and civilian branches of gov
ernments. Schleicher pointed out
that it is "pretty evident" that
MacArthur has disregarded or dis
obeyed orders in the past—"Ho
has not been a. good soldier."
tiring Will Cause Debate
Schleicher feels that Truman's ■
action in firing MacArthur will
cause considerable debate here at
"But," he declared, "when th«
polls are taken, I believe that at
least two-thirds of those who ex
press an opinion will back up Tru«
man's action." i
