TWO BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEW* THUMB AT, JANTTArr M. GOP Considers Inviting MacArthur as Keynote' Speaker for Convention By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (A 1 ) —The possibility of inviting Gen. Douglas MacArthur to be keynote speaker at the Republican Presidential nominating convention is under discussion by members of the party's executive committee. A prominent GOP official,' who asked not to b« quoted by name, told a reporter that he and his colleagues have talked over such an Invitation to the general. This party member said MacArthur is almost certain to be asked to make a major speech at the July convention In any event—a likelihood confirmed in other Republican quarters. Contract May Be Noted If MacArthur is invited to speak —and accepts—the GOP contention might note a contrast beoween his attitude toward Army regulations against political activity end that of Gen. Dwlght D. Eisenhower. • Eisenhower has made it clear that so long u he is In uniform as North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) commander, he will not discuss political matters although he has made himself available for the GOP nomination If his friends can get it for him. "So Far Rejected" Thus far NfacArthur has rejected all invitations to address purely political gatherings, limiting his appearances to civic-sponsored affairs and to addressing Congress and state legislatures. But the general's reported keen interest In the Presidential campaign" Is said to have led him to express his political views in letters to some office-holders. In these the general I.s reported to have made It clear he looks with a great deal of friendly Interest on the bid of Sen., Taft (R-Ohlo) for the Republican Presidential nomination. Any invitation to MacArthur to keynote the convention might meet with opposition from Eisenhower backers. Hand-to-Hand Combat Routine For Marines in California Area BRIDGEPORT, Calif.
