Douglas MacArlhur has not plans at this time lo return to Ihe united Stales between now »nd the convening of the Republican Nalional Convention in June It also can be stated authoritatively that MacArthur is not encouraging anybody to line up delegates in his behalf for that, convention. The general celebrated tils 681I1-* birthday yesterday. Got Around • I .'-<T."*~I . —... He was lined. M work, as usual, aiiri apparently was little concerned at news from the United States thai former Governor Philip LaFollclte of Wisconsin formally had opened a campaign to obtain the Republican Presidential nomination for him.

It always hps been the general's attitude that lie will talk freely, usually off the record and for background only, about problems of the occupation and the general situation in Asia as it relates to his work, but that he should not comment upon affairs which are outside his sphere of activity. It is the opinion of some of those who are close to the general, however, that he could not refuse the Republican nomination If it were offered to him. "His record always has been that of a' public servant who carried out to the best of his ability any assignment which the American people gave him." one Informant safd. "and on the basis of his record tt hardly Is conceivable that he would refuse the Brcatest task of all If there appears a genuine demand for his services. Not Seeking Nomination The general, however, will "not lift a finiier" to seek the nomination, those who are close to him believe. They add he decrny would resent any "MacArthur boom" In the United States which soucht Improperly to capitalize upon his war record or prestige he. attained as supreme commander in Japan. There hns been no chanee in the general's consistent determination to see through the occuoation to a successful conclusion, bis associates assert, and be woul;l not deviate from this determination if the Republican convention next June should declare him th c party's standard bearer in elections to be held in November. II. can b e staled authoritatively that the general at this time has no plain of any kind to return to the United States In advance ot thc Republican convention and thai he Is ot encouraging anybody to try to line up delegates for him.
