(U.P.)—Oil. George C. Mnr- shiil! took office as Serre- lary of Stale today jfttcr bluntly sqiielcliiiijf spcccla- tion that lie might be available later as a Democrat!; candidate for President. Sonic IJcnuKTals' bad discussed the idea of drafting him if President Truman should not run : .n 19-18. Before taking his new Marshill in an unsolicited ment to reporters declared: "I cannot be dratted. lor ;"-i<- iioMtical office." In addition to squelching presidential speculation, Marshall i.lpo .said that he considered the Sec- retaryship of Slate to be a no'i- politicnl job. "And," he added, "I am ftoi'.ig to govern myself accordingly." Marshall's statement was perhaps the most explicit and unambiguous disavowal of political ambition since another general took himself out of politics after the Civil War. At that lime Gr;'.i. William T. Sherman declared that ,i he would not run lor President ii 4f, nominated, and would not serve if elected. "I am being explicit and emphatic," Marshall said, "in r.rdor to terminate once nnd for all any discussion of my name in regard to ""'itical office." Whatever his feelings about political office. the moment Marshall took oath of office sis Secretary of Stale he became heir to the office of President should anything happen io Mr. Tniman in the next two years. ' There being no Vice Presidrr.t, the Secretary of State is now ti.'st in the line of succession. Marshall took the oath of ul'- ficc as successor to James F. Byrnes from Chief Justice Fr;:c1 M.

The former Army Chief of StaU arrived here by train from Cm- cai;o at 7:35 a. m.. completing ionnicy from China which interrupted by several days of rest in Honolulu and by n brief layover at Chicago where his plane was grounded by bad weather. £> Marshall did not leave the Ii "?' until about an hour and a Inn niter its arrival at Union Station. When he finally emerged from his private car, the first thing Marshall did was to give reporters the oral statement in wjiich he sU'^a unequivocally that he could be drafted for any political oftire.
