The union Two 5-Sfor Generals Make Big Story in Chicago Today By BKI.MAN MORIS' pin the postwar years: CHCAGO (.11 — The two five-star I "We must fully understand that, generals arc the story in Chicago' once we commit ourselves lo the today. 1 defense of othof.s, the issue of war One of Diem, Dwtglit i>. Elsen- hower, came home a winner In the first, thrill-packed vote on the pence is no longer let our exclusive hands. 'We must remain faithful to the full convention floor.

Neverlhe-1 faithful to theirs made lo us but f less, the consensus here today lhat it has Improved his chances of winning the Republican nomination for the presidency. As a man put It — a man who had been lo a black-tie dinner on the city's elegant North Shore — "A lot more people over there are wearing 'Ike' buttons on the out- i sirjn of their Inpels now." The other general, Douglas .MacArthur, delivered Ihe keynote most identical, wilti speech at the convention last niyhl. At the mere mention of Mac- Arthilr's name, the crowd nearly blew the roof oft tl"s big. bull- chesled auditorium. * ul then, as he walked down Ihe center aisle, an erect soldier in a plain blue business suit, Ihe excitement mounted to near-pandemonium. Whether nny political inferences can be drawn from the ovation and the cheers Is next to impossible to determine. No Reaction Shoivn A spot-check of the- Pennsylvania find Michigan delegations — where he is reported to have fervent admirers — indicated no uniform allure of the- principle of collective eciirity In Korea . . . plainly warns that too much must not bo expected from collective security elsewhere. In Europe, and indeed tliroiiBh- Jilt the world, our foreign policy ipproach has boon equally as vacillating and negative, and for the most part, sad to relate, under the domination of others." This Is very close to, If nol nl- what Taft >ay.s on foreign policy, It is prac- .ically the opposite to much of the Eisenhower point of view. Beyond .agreement that reaction. It was a good speech, and good for the Republican party, Ihcro seemed no other strong attitude. MacArthur may still be the X- factor In this GOP equation. There were some interesting things about that, speech. The American Broadcasting Company reported It put nn applause- gauge on MncArthur to measure the length nnd Intensity of the cheers. It reported these three peaks: 1. A sound-score ot 120—which if very high—lasting for 32 seconds when he said: "It Is fatal to enter •ny war without the will to win 2. A score of 98, lasting 21 seconds, In reaction to his statement: "Foreign policy tins been as tragically In error as has domestic policy." 3. And 96, for 24}a seconds, when he said: "While I have not been consulted with reference to Korea elnoc my retirement ... I can unhesitatingly say that a leader. «hlp which by weakness ntiri Jn- declMon has brought about such a military dilemma lacks Ihe soundness ^pfy.-.y^lslon, the moral cour*f«, .i'nijlti' ¥ei«Me Those, r aeSonBi« (.to •fwhat ABC «»id were electric sound-measurements, wire the statements that drew the heaviest applause. All three reflect some aspect of tfee foreign situation. Speech Is Divided MacArthur divided his speech equally between domestic and foreign policy. As he has done before, he accused the Democrats of responsibility for the public debt, mounting taxation, Inflation, corruption In government, the encroachment of federal authority on the slates and "the prerequisites lo a socialistic, or even a communistic state. At no time, in the large foreign policy segment of his speech, did he mention Eisenhower. But he made some points lhat conceivably could pertain lo Eisenhower's rol chief counseled Ihrrri: "Don't be dismayed. The com panics' resistance is an attempt lo undermine your union, non't let them divide you and victory will be yours."

He planned to call Ihe lOti-mcm- ber Resolutions Committee into closed-door session tomorrow to go over the entire platform and semi It on to the convention for expected approval. Yesterday, Minikin and his aides got clearance from Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio, Gen. Dwlght D. Elsen- hower nnd other GOP presidential aspirants on the all-Important foreign policy planlc. Taft, who told newsmen he was not too keen about some points, asked lo be .shown the final draft when It Is ready. The plank, described as "Internationalist" by Its drafters, promises effective action lo curb Communist aggression and lo offer "hope of freedom" to peoples behind Ihe Iron Curtain., It lakes a belt at the Roosevelt-Truman handling of forelgn'nftnlrs. One issue still was unresolve.d— a split report on the civil rights stand. 'We had two different proposals so we tossed away both of them and are trying to write » third," Mlllikin told reporters. Clarence Budlngton Kelland. author and veteran Arizona Republican national commltleemnn, said in a separate Interview ttmt muny words still miist be cut out.
