President Eisenhower had a talk yesterday with Gen. Douglas Mac- Arthur about the world military situation, including the war in In dochina. MacArthur, now chairman of the board of Remington Rand Inc., re ported that the President wanted to get his point of view on the general strategic picture. They discussed national and in ternational matters with “great frankness,” MacArthur told report ers, but he added “no greater sig nificance should be attached to the meeting than that it was a gen eral discussion between two old friends.” MacArthur’s last military post was that of supreme commander in the Far East. When he was asked whether he and the President talked about Indochina, where French and loyal native forces are fighting a furious battle with Vietminh Red guerillas, MacArthur said at first that he “would not care to go into any greater detail.” He then added, however, that Lamont to Lecture On Artificial Kid Capt. Lamont E. Danzig, chief, fluid and renal section, surgical research unit, Brooke Army Medi cal Center, Fort Sam Houston, will give a lecture at 7:30 p. m., March 22 in the lecture room of the Bio logical Sciences building on the A&M campus. He will lecture on “The Use of the Artificial Kidney in Medical Practice,” Dr. Ide P. Trotter, dean of the Graduate School said, today. “This lecture should be parti cularly interesting to biologists, biochemists, pre-medical and medi cal and medical personnel in this area,” Dean Trotter said. Indochina is an important part of the world situation, and that “in general we reviewed that situat tion.” He declined to state his own views of Indochina, saying “I am no longer in a position of authority and I have always thought that responsibility should go with au thority.” It was the first time the two old soldiers had met since last June 8, when MacArthur was a guest at a White House stag party. He had two sessions with the Pres ident today. In between he was guest of honor at a small presi dential luncheon. MacArthur has been on inactive duty since 1951, when President Truman removed him as supreme commander in the Far East as the result of disagreement over policy.
