Outcome Will
Little Affect
Party's Choice
Primaries To Be Held
In Ilinois, Nebraska;
Light Vote Expected
By The Associated Press
The nation gets another look today
at the presidential vote-appeal of two
Republicans in uniform-Gen. Doug-
las MacArthur and Lt. Com. Harold
E. Stassen-but the outcome will
have no binding influence on the
party's choice of a nominee.
MacArthur is entered without his
authorization in an Illinois presi-
dential preference primary against
Riley Bender, Chicago real estate
No Opposition for Stassen
Stassen is in the Nebraska pref-
erence primary without opposition.
Wendell L. Willkie's name is on the
ballot but it lost its meaning when
he gave up pursuit of the presidential
nomination after last week's Wiscon-
sin defeat.
In neither Illinois nor Nebraska
will the result of the popular vote be
binding upon national convention
delegates from the two states. But
backers of MacArthur and Stassen
thumped for a big vote turnout.
Advance indications were , for a
light vote, however, in both states.
Illinois expected a turnout of about
half the four million registered vot-
ers. Nebraska expected a vote light-
er than 1942's subnormal 219,356
No Important Democratic Contests
In the absence of any important
Democratic presidential contests in
the two states, politicians watched
for the total vote to see if it would
give any indication of comparative
strength between Republican and
Democratic sentiment. Republicans
predicted they would get 60 per cent
of the vote cast in Illinois.
Col. Robert R. McCormick's news-
paper came out for MacArthur over
Bender in the Illinois election in a
page one editorial saying a vote for
him "will be a vote for the return
of stalwart Americanism to the White

He plans to discuss recent trends
in China such as the constitutional
movement there and the reasons he

perience, then returned to the Uni-
versity to do graduate work.

"Because of the shortage of milky
in England, I had only one glass dur-
ing the 18 months I was stationedt
there," Candidate James D. Murphy
of the 6th OC class of the Judge Ad-
vocate General's School said in an
interview yesterday.
Candidate Charles W. Manning,
also of the 6th OC class, and Candi-
date Murphy roomed together in
London for 14 months. They were
sent to England at the same time,
both being in the Criminal Investi-
gating Division of the Provost Mar-I
shal General's Office.
Roomed Together in London
Before being stationed in London,
they travelled around England for
five months observing the conduct
of our troops. Candidate Murphy re-
turned to this country on March 6
and Candidate Manning came back
on March 21.
"It is a fallacy to think that the
English are all aloof. They love to
entertain the American soldiers in
their homes. Their hesitancy in in-
viting the soldiers is due to their
embarrassment about not being
able to provide large meals," Can-
didate Murphy stated.
They said that there is a great
shortage of some foods in England.
A small bunch of grapes costs about
$2.50 and one peach costs $1. Be-
cause of war-time shortages, the En-
glish people no longer are able to
have an egg for breakf st every
morning. Their ration pervits each
person one egg every three weeks.
Candidate Manning said that there
are no frame houses in England. The
majority are either brick or stone
and are very much alike in structure.
The English do not have the many
varied types of architecture that we
English Like Fresh Air
"The English people are very fond
of fresh air. Even in the wintertime
they have their houses open. You
could get warm in them only if you
were within five feet of the fireplace
in the right direction," Candidate
Manning stated.
He explained that the English
houses do not have central heating
systems as American homes do. All
the houses depend on fireplaces for
their heat.
"The inside of the homes in that
country is very similar to American
houses except that the rooms are
somewhat smaller, Candidate Mur-
phy added.,
He said that when the troops first;
started arriving in England the En-'

glish people would go out of their
way to be friendly. However, during
the last few months such a large
number of troops have arrived that
they are no longer a novelty.
"There are servicemen from so ma-
ny different countries in England
that it is impossible to learn to rec-
ognize all the different uniforms," he
See King, Queen
Both men said that "This Is the
Army" was very well received in En-
gland. They attended the afternoon
performance which the king, queen
and princesses went to see and sat
across the theatre from the royal
Candidate Murphy said that dur-
ing the time he was in London about
19 out of every 20 motion pictures
shown were American ones and that
the people picked up many of our
American expressions from these.
Cand. Murphy was in the prosecut-
ing attorney's office in Kansas City
before entering the Army more than
two years ago. He received his AB
and LLB degrees from the University
of Missouri.
Cand. Manning was in the district
attorney's office in New York before
entering the Army aproximately
three years ago. He got his AB and
LLB degrees from the University of
West Virginia.
