And then, as he walked dnwn the renter aisle, an r-rerl soldier in a plain blue busings suit, the excitement mounted to near-pandemonium. Inference* Doubtful Whelher any political inference can be d r a w n from the ovatlo , and the cheers is next to impos ; slble to determine.

Beyond genera agreement, with a few gcatterer dissents, t h a t It was a good speech ami good for the Republican par ty. thore seemed no other strong a t t i t u d e . f Meter lived MacArthur may still he the X- factor in this GOP equation. There were sonic interesting things about that speech. The American Broadcasting Company reported II put an applause gauge on MacArthur to measure the length and intensity of the cheers. 11 reported theVc three peaks: 1. A sound-score of 120--which is very high-lasting for 32 seconds when he said: "It is f a t a l to enter anv war without the w i l l to win It." 2. A score of US, lasting 27 seconds, in reaction to his Matement: "Foreign policy has been as tragically in error an has domestic policy." 3. And 9.V for 2-1 % seconds, when he snid: " W h i l e 1 have not been consulted w i t h reference to Korea since my retirement . . . I , can unhesitatingly say Unit a Icad- i ership which hy weaknr-K;; and in| decision has brought about such ' a m i l i t a r y dilemma lacks the soundness of vision, the moral | courage, and the resolute w i l l to resolve it." Those, according to what ABC said were electric sound-measurements, were the i.tatci.icnls t h a t drew the heaviest fipplause. All three reflect some aspect of the foreign situation. MacArthur divided his speech equally between domestic and foreign policy. As he has done before, he accused the Democrats o f ] responsibility for the public debt. I mounting taxation, i n f l a t i o n , cor- j ruptlon in government, the en-1 croachmcnt of federal a u t h o r i t y I on the states, and "the prcrcqui- j sites to a socialistic, or e if cn a communistic slate."

Delegation Chairman Wallace Townsend, Little flock, reported the Arkansas caucus today would tw closed and would be devoted to a number of matters. One if the issues lo come up may be Arkansas' procedure when Ihe roll of slates is called for nomination o." candidates. Arkansas being third on the list has a choice position and could nominate or second a candidate or yield to some other stale. Arkansas' three avowed Eisenhower delegates teamed with one urcommitted and the seven Taft r.embers yesterday to vote against Eisenhower's "fair-play" amendment at the Republican-convention. Townsend, a Taft supporter, said the Arkansas vote "should not be inlerpreled as a vote in Tafl's favor." He said "we felt t h a t this is not the time lo change Ihe rules and Craig and Ihe olhers went along with us." Townsend was referring to Harry Craig of Caraway, one o) the three Arkansans listed as favoring Eisenhower. The olher two ·ire Elmer C. Webb, Mountain View, and F. A. Teague, Forl Smith. --James A.

Earl Warren and "all the other leaders of our party to stand with me before the bar of American public j opinion. Do not tamper with the fate of the party and the fate of our nation," he said.

He called for a united front of Republicans, now unsettled by the close race between Gen. Dv.xht Eisenhower and Ohio Sen. Robert A. Taft for presidenliai nomination. "The Republican party is beset." Bridges said, "by slormy, bitter wrangling forces . . . This party cannot succeed if this bitterness remains after (he convention. "Let us heed this warning-unless the Republican party stands in a solid phalanx behind the choice of this convention for the presidency of the United States, ve will almost certainly go down to defeat in November." Not Expeclini Defeat j A Republican defeat in the presidential election then. Bridges said, would spell "the end of the two-party system as we know it."
