This much was known: Th American Joint Chiefs of Staff, while MacArthur was in the Pacific, recommended to Roosevelt before he went to Yalta that Russia should be brought into the war to divide Japan's strength, save American lives and help end the war faster. Last March 16 the Eisenhower administration made public the hitherto more or less secret record of (fee Yalta conference. The Democrats protested at once this was a political trick to hurt them.

MacArlhur denied he had ma'le such a recommendation. He sa id his views weren't asked and he didn't know the Yalta conference was beiiiff held until It was over. j He said that as early as five months before fhe Yalta meeting, in the fall of 1944. he considered Japan's collapse imminent and, If he had been asked about the need for Russian help, would have recommended against it. On April 1 the Washington Post, and Times Herald editorially chided MacArthur for this denial and quoted from the diary of (he late James Forrestal, Navy secretary at the time, who visited MacArthur 16 days after the Yalta'meet- ing. Forrestal noted .in his diary that McArthur told him the United States should try to get Russia Into the war. On April 3, two days after the editorial, MacArthur issued another statement. He said there was a difference between what he felt before and after Yalta. Before Yalta he was against Russia's entry in the war. But once the President had decided at Yalta Russia should come In, then MacArthur had sponsibility of accepting cision.
