Integration

Today, two (2) Supreme Court decisions would change the racial landscape for ever, "separate but equal" doctrine established by the 1896 case Plessy v. Ferguson was deemed unconstitutional as regards graduate and professional education.

(McLaurin v. Oklahoma State Regents, 339 U.S. 637 and Sweatt v. Painter, 339 U.S. 629)

Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, 347 U.S. 483 four (4) years later would be influenced by this latter decision. [note]

Time Cover

Time Magazine, has a 1,500 word article today written by by Far East correspondent Frank Gibney who wrote in glowing terms that thanks to KMAG the Americanization of the ROK Army was coming along faster than anticipated, he also said:

"Most observers now rate the 100,000-man South Korean Army as the best of its size in Asia . . . and no one now believes that the Russian-trained North Korean Army could pull off a quick, successful invasion of the South without heavy reinforcements."

He also spoke of how the former Japanese field officers (majors and lieutenants) are making the best officers in the ROK. He also mentioned how well the economy was doing, especial compared with the north. In 1945 the won (Korean currency ₩) was valued on the black market, at 4,700 to 1 dollar. Today the won has a value of 15 to 1 dollar. They have balanced their budgets, and their import/export balance sheet. Instead of importing 450,000 tons of cereal as they did in 1947, today they are exporting 100,000 ton of rice, to their former masters, Japan.

Unlike the peoples we liberate these days (2012), they were happy to see the United States there, and wanted us to stay.

Republican Senator H. Alexander Smith of New Jersey wrote that the ROKs were

`"thoroughly capable of taking care of Southern Korea in any possible conflict With the North."

Republican Senator William F. Knowland from California wrote a similar analysis.

All this sounds real comforting, but if you remember that back on January 5, 1950, Truman had announced that the United States had adopted the hands-off Formosa policy followed on the 12th by Dean Acheson declaring both Korea and Taiwan were outside the US Far East security cordon .So after telling the Soviets and DPRK that America would not support either government, KMAG found itself being down sized by 50%. And ever since people had been giving rave receives of the ROK Army and their capabilities. [note]
