And, ho said in a statement issued in New York last night, he has no "personal hatred of President Truman." "I have no personal feelings whatsoever with reference to Urn," he said. The statement followed publication by Newsweek magazine of an article that said MacArthur favored Ohio Sen. Robert A. Taft for'the GOP-presidential nomination, but would support Harold E. Stasscn or Eisenhower if either beats Taft. Mac.irthur said "headlines, captions and advertisements which can hardly h? regarded as supported by the body of the article itself, tend to create the impression that I favor Eisenhower. He said he has a warm personal feeling for Eisenhower, but: "I do not support his candidacy for political office as I have ' no slightest knowledge of his political beliefs or his vhws on many grave issues which how confront our nation."

Appearing on a New York television program with Tex McCrary, an Eisenhower backer, the Ohio senator engaget" in a heated; arm-waving dispute that toucl ed off an audience reaction which almost stopped the show. McCrary, columnist and radio- TV- commentator, said Taft hadn't told the truth when he said in his book, "A Foreign Policy for Americans," that President Truman did not confer with Congress on the Korean War until weeks after it started. McCrary said Truman talked with nine Democratic and five Republican congressmen 61 hours after the outbreak of hostilities. . Taft snapped that his own statement was right because "14 senators are not the Senate of the United States." The audience broke into boos and cheers. Taft added that McCrary had called him ·, liar, and demanded that he withdraw the statement. The audience became so noisy at this point a request had to be made for quiet. Stamen Hits Corruption Stasscn, addressing the New York Republican Club in New York City, ripped into government corruption, asked Congress to look into the source of Attorney General McGrath's "accumulated wealth," and said he felt Taft had CONTINUED ON PACE TWO motions above the rank of captain arc difficult lo get, the speakers naid. Most of the officers at the.mcct- ing took part in Ihc discussion on U.M.T., ( and thc general opinion was that a properly administered U.M.T. program would givt every able-bodied man an equal opportunity for . training and service, would supply for an adequate reserve program, and would avoid the excessive expense of maintaining a large standing army.

While at present it Is necessary to place emphasis on atomic weapons, Glennan said tftc com mission is not forgetting its responsibility for developing other forms. He said 1 atomic power foi widespread economic, usu Is no "just nro'uhd the corner." but i may be closer than most people think. Expansion Planned ' The scientist revealed lhat the present atomic program Is costing In the neighborhood of $5.000,000,000, and consideration Cs being given to expansion which woulc double the cost. . Noting the unusual circum stance's u n d e r . w h i c h atomic dc vclopmenl is taking place--a legal monopoly of government ownership with development under lease to privale industry--Glcn- nan said there is cause for concern over whether thc work should be continued indefinitely as a government monopoly or bo thrown open to development by private competition, But he commented thai at present the program is too costly for private enterprise to car^y on. "Only the combined resources of thc nation." he said, "arc s u f f i - cient to carry out thc development as it has to be done." Thc d i f f i c u l t world situation requires government ownership and supervision now for defense, he continued, because of the importance of Momlc energy In warfare. The need for secrecy is a drawback. Glennan said, warning that scientists will not continue indefinitely their wllingncss lo work in atomic development in secrecy. He hoped that thc condition of .world affairs will make continued secrecy unnecessary.
