WASHINGTON (P)--President
Carter ordered the immediate
recall of the third-ranking U.S.
Army general in South Korea
yesterday after the general
questioned Carter's plans to
withdraw Anerican troops from
that country.
Cater ordered the general to
report to him at the White
THE RECALL order was sim-

took in 1951 when he recalled
Gen. Douglas MacArthur in a
dispute over the handling of the
Korean war.
Deputy Press Secretary Rex
Granum, who announced Car-

A White House official, asked
if Carter was upset by.Sing-
laub's public questioning of the
President's policy position, re-
"HE WASN'T happy. Here
you have a general making a
policy statement when he (Car-
ter) is the commander-in-chief."
Another Carter aide urged a
reporter to keep in mind the
President's own former career
as a professional Navy officer

A WHITE HOUSE spokesman
said he did not know whether
Carter would see the general
Saturday or next Monday.
Granum acknowledged that
Carter had acted on the basis
of a Page one dispatch from
Seoul in yesterday's Washington
Post that quoted Singlaub as
questioning the President's plan
to withdraw American ground
forces, from South Korea in the
next four to five years.
"If we withdravy our ground

was quoted as saying.

If it had not been for leaks,
Nixon said, "the war in Vietnam
