BLI'lJUTTLLI OUUK1CT CTW8 , SEPTEMBER 88, More State Primaries Due In 1956 Than Ever Before 1 By D. HAROLD OLIVER WASHINGTON (AP) — More voters than ever before will have an opportunity next spring to take part directly in the presidential nominating process. Between March 13 and June 5. both parties will hold presidential elections in IB states. primary --Alaska and the District of Columbia to pick delegates to the August national conventions or express nomination choices or both. A 19th state, Alabama, will probably confine its primary voiing to the Democrats. In 1952, both parites held primaries in only 16 states, and Dem- orcatic primaries only were held in Alabama, Florida and the "'' trict at Columbia. Two More St»t« A survey by the Republican National Committee research stall today showed that since the 1952 election, two more states—Indiana and Montana—and Alaska and the District of Columbia have adopted presidential primary laws, and Florida enacted a revised law. Nevada passed a law in 1953 providing for direct election of pledged national convention delegates, but repealed it this year without giving the system a chnnce to operate, the survey showed. In nonprimary states, national convention delegates are selected in state and district conventions and in a few instances by party committees. No Two Alike No two presidential primary laws are alike. Some provide for election of definitely pledged dele- gages. • Under others, delegates may be pledged or not. Still others provide lor presidential preference or popularity contests where the people vote directly on presidential choices a* well as for delegate candidates. Next year, delegate candidates will be or may be pledged in dozen of the primary states. Her« are the dates for next year'« presidential primaries: March 13,, New Hampshire: March 20, Minnesota; April 3, Wisconsin; April 10, Illinois; April 17, New Jersey; April 24, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania.
