The drive to pin the blame for short wave broadcasts which lawmakers blasted as sabotage and slander shaped up this way: 1 Mr. Truman said at his news conference late yesterday that MacArthur Not to Return At This Time Trip Would Be Called General Asserts General Doug- las MacArthur said today he does not want to return to the United States until after the Republican national convention.

P.'s, Draft Get Top Priority In Congress Washington yP) Republican leaders today asked Senate commlt- abtised "word''Thc'vi wcs to abandon all except abllsea WOICI. In rfvlvn he had ordered an Inquiry Into 'the radio programs. The President said he wants to find out who was at fault for the type of broadcast beamed to Latin America. But he noted the programs were not hand- led by the State department. They had been "farmed out" by the de- partment to the National Broad- casting Company. 2. A House expenditures subcom- mittee headed by Representative Chenoweth scheduled a public hearing (8 a. m.) today. The group called as its first witness George V. Allen, assistant secretary of state in charge of the Voice ol America broadcasts. These programs are intended to tell the world of the democratic way of life in this cablegram. The committee voted 17-2 to ask him to return from Tokyo and testify on economic matters in the Pacific area. MacArthur told Bridges "My re- turn at this time, however sincere its purpose, would be misunderstood and condemned by many as poli- tically inspired." Mac Arthur added: "On the other hand, following settlement of the political issues to be resolved next month, I should feel free to place myself fully at your disposal if you still desire clarification of my views on this or any other matter affecting the public interest." Bridges said "I can see his point of view on this thing." Bridscs said he would place MacArthur's reply before the full appropriations com- mittee as soon as possible. The general has long been men- tioned as a possible Republican presidential nominee. The boom for him grew louder after the Senate committee's vote yesterday. Both of those who voted against asking the occupation commander of Japan to come home after more than ten years in the Philippines and points west said they did so because of the political atmosphere. Senator Saltonstall CR.-Mass.) said he fears the visit Is "bound to have political implication." He add- ed: "I want to keep the E.C.A. as free of the politicians are Premier Oottwald. tho Foreign Min- ister, Vladimir Klemcntls, and the Minister of Interior, Vaclav Nosek.

Previously they had been carried out under the President's war pow- ers. The furore over the programs was touched off when Senator Capehart read to the Senate ex- cerpts of broadcasts beamed late in 1047 and early this year to South and Central America, After Capehart told the Senate about the broadcasts, NBC announc- ed it had fired the script writer, Rene Borgia, and that the super- visor assigned to review them. Al- berto Gandero, had been transferred to other duties and later resigned. Ordered to Capehart released correspondence in which Borgia said he wrote the programs the way he did because he was "ordered" to do so by his NBC superiors. (In Havana, Gandero said he is 'astonished" that the articles caus- ed such a commotion in the U. S.

Rail, bus and airline ticket offices reported plans had been made to take care of an overflow crowd of holiday travelers.
