PORTSMOUTH, ENG.-(A)-The British submarine Affray, miss-

Bradley Hits
'Nation Must Aim
For World Peace'
CHICAGO-(P)-General Omar
N. Bradley spoke out yesterday
against General MacArthur's sug-
gestions that the Korean war be
extended to China.
Bradley' was the first of Mac-
Arthur's fellow five-star military
men to raise his voice publicly
against the proposals since Mac-
Arthur was ousted from his far
east posts last week by President
GEN. BRADLEY, Chairman of*
the joint Chiefs of Staff, did not
mention MacArthur's name. But
he said, "There is little immediate
danger of this country being over-
run-but our way of life, our free-
dom and our nation have the best
chances for survival by keeping
peace in the world.
"This is the over-riding con-
sideration of our national for-
eign and military policies. Any
recommended course of action
which would enlarge the present
war is contrary to our best in-
terests, and by jeopardizing
world peace, ultimately would
threaten our security."
Bradley spoke at the conven-
tion of the National Association of
Radio and Television Broadcasters.

expansion of the Korean fighting

Arthur'sdviewsconfthat subject.

leader. MacArthur had recom-
mended that the solution to the
Korean situation is to use Chinese

carry the war to the Chinese main-
land and to bomb Manchurian
Gen. Bradley supported Presi-
dent Truman's stand against
MacArthur's ideas and defended
the Administration's policy of
limiting the war in Korea.
"There is no early end in sight
to the Korean war under present
conditions," Bradley said. "As far
as we can see now there is nothing
transitory about the Communists'
determination to drive us out of
Korea and, if possible, to destroy
our forces completely. We may
strive for peace and a cessation of
hostilities, but while so doing we
must continue to fight."

DETROIT-(P)-David D. Henry,
president of Wayne University,
defended deferment of college stu-
dents last night but said the pro-
gram had two serious weaknesses.
President Henry, in an address

American Association for Health,
Physical Education and Recrea-
tion, said that under the program
