WEDNESDAY, APRIL 16, 1952 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIEB NE\YS PAGE FTV1 Robert Murphy May Be Chosen Envoy to Japan Truman Is Expected To Send Name Before Senate Today WASHINGTON ifl'i _ president Truman was expected to send 1/1 the Senate, probably today, the nomination of veteran diplomat Robert D. Murphy as America's first postwar ambassador to Japan. The action would fcllnw closely on yesterday's signing by tho President of the Japanese Peace Treaty, completing United States ratification of the document. Its effective date is April 28. Murphy, no\v ambassador to Belgium, was chascn for the important po=.t because of a varied 31-year career which, has made him one of the country's most experienced diplomat. 1 ;, Tall, bald and affable, the 57- year-old envoy is a veteran of difficult overseas assignments — almost all in Europe, But for the past month, he has been undergoing intensive briefing at the State Department on the complex problems f-xpeclcd in the new of Japanese-American relations. POLITICS SOUNDS OFF—This striking new picture of Marshal Tito of Yugoslavia was taken during his recenl address to a joint session of the National Assembly in Belgrade. The dynamic dictator warned the leaders cf Western nations that Yugoslavia musl tnke part in any decisions affecting Zone A of free territory of Trieste. (Continued from Page 1) gains in those elections, racking up a massive vote in Illinois and running ahead of Eisenhower in the Nebraska write-in battle. Eisenhower was not entered in either the Illinois or Wisconsin elections, Newark — 2nd galley primary The position of the New Jersey Republican delegates was not entirely clear. Technically, all 38 p,o to the convention unpledged and uninstructed. Gov, Driscoll said before the ection that they should consider themselves "morally obligated" to abide by the results of the preferential poll. In a statement last night Driscoll said: "What happened in New Jersey today was a truly remarkable victory for General Eisenhower and I might add for the people of New Jersey and the nation/' Later in a radio broadcast over station WOR, Driseoll said Eisenhower was "a clear choice of Republicans in the Garden State." "The task of the republican party now Is to join ranks and solidify their position and to carry out the mandate of our citizens." Six Favor Taft At least six, however, have indicated with varying degrees of privacy, that they favor Taft. One, who was elected, is openly R Stassen man. Four of the delegates known to favor Taft were elected, and two more were running strongly In the district races. There were some, as well, who told The Associated Press they would consider themselves "morally obligated" to conform to the results of the preferential vote In their individual districts, regardless of the total result in the state. The democratic ballots were studded with write-in votes. President Truman, despite having formally taken himself out of the presidential picture, received more than 100. Stevenson, considered the President's personal ; choice as the Democratic candidate, also was represented with about that many voles. Eisenhower's name was written in by more than 300 Democrats, and Taft had several dozen. During the bitterly-fought campaign, both the Taft and Eisenhower supporters expressed suspicions that the otber side had made "deals" with Jersey Democrats for votes. Party-lines can be crossed, legally, under certain conditions, and (lie two principal GOP opponents sniri they suspected ench other of having marie promises to the Dem- ocrnts in order to win support.
