And the clamor, for and ag-ainst Mac Arthur, still rageg, Though the controversy is strictly an American one, it has evoked debate beyond the bounds of the stars /i.arid stripes. Anyone \vho ha? 'an opinion is sharply one way or the other, and we can recall no other political broil that is as tangy,
Even local and home .�.comment' proves interesting. We find that the Issei, pointing to MacAr-thur's five year occupation rule, come out strongly for the man with the cob. The -Nisei are morp .divided. Anti-MacArthur-ites feel that the general is paid to do a job, not create new ones, and like any other .employee, must conform to the thinking, of his superior, or resign. Some who uphold -Mac Arthur are .those who -dislike Truman rather than support Mac's convictions. :
.We see that the .majority of the Japanese American presses and their Nisei, columnists lean

towards Mac. They, like many ^ of their regular dailie^j^are.critical of the adniinistration's policy in the. far east and accuse Truman of consorting with the willy mlly appeasement'', policy of some of her allies, particularly Britain arid France.-
