'S HEADQUARTERS, Lcyte, Philippines, Oct. 25 (U.P.) — General Douglas MacArthur has returned to the Philippines in 1944 instead of iir 1945 because two and a hair years ago he followed'an offensive plan instead of a defensive .one. ' United- Press War Correspondent Frank Hewlett says MacArthur convinced invasion-worried Australians they should fight the Japanese in New Guinea instead of waiting far landings on their own continent. Hewlett says that when MacAr- tlnir n.<auined command of the Southwest pacific, he found the Brisbane defense plan already set up. Tlie Australians planned to abandon irost of Queensland in case of invasion, and to halt the Japs north of Brisbane. The plan was scrapped at thc general's distance. Ho pressed thc bulk or his meager supplies, planes anil soldiers to Port Moresby and Milne Bay. Thc Jap invasion forces were wiped out there. Tlie Buna, campaign fallowed. A motley fleet gallantly fought, off Jap aircraft to supply American and Australian jungle fighters There. were, ancient ferrys, schooners and fishing 1 bolts'' tnV'mosl valued ships in the fleet were a few captured and repaired Japanese landing crnft. That's what MacArthur had for I'.k first offensive. But the mightiest power of thc Pacific fleet is r.ccompanyinf him on his • return to the Philippines. * EPSON IN WASHINGTON 20 $64 Election Questions BV TETKK EDSOK Courier News Washington Rt»t Ocuner nan Want Adi.
