Douglas MacArthur warned yesterday on the anniversary of the Japanese surrender lhat Japan might become a "dangerous springboard for war" be cause it is the focal point of "impinging ideologies" — an obvious reference lo the world-wide clash belwcen Soviet Russia and demo cralic principles. His statement from Allied head- uartcrs one year after the signing t the surrender aboard the Bat- leship Missouri in Tokyo Bay was he most strongly-worded and om- nous public pronouncement the supreme commander has made since he become occupation chief. "It is either a powerful bulwark for pcacc of a dangerous springboard for war," MacArthur said. "Over all things and all men in this sphere of the universe hangs the dread uncertainty arising from impinging ideologies which now. stir mankind. The closest, he came to specifi- fol-| While giving no comprehensive figures, the announcement declared that the final total for .res toration of the monarchy would "not be less than 75 percent of the votes cast in the stormy election, which cost 18 lives in the 36 hours ending at midnight Sunday. Approximately 40 persons were listed as haying met violent deaths in political disorders during the final week of'the campaign. A partial vote tabulation by the Interior ministry did not wholly bear out its prediction of a three to one majority, although the king held a commanding margin. With' 25 percent of the vote counted, the lally was given as 209,636 for the' king and 132,805 for .the republic — less than two to one for the. monarchy. For the 59-year old monarch the, victory, announced .by the interior ministry spelled his second-recall from exile since he. first ascended . the throne in 1923.
