Barry Goldwatcr's nomination. 'The Associated Press came within 2iJ votes of forecasting the Arizonan's first-ballot total. The reports enabled Associated Press members to publish and broadcast a continuing count of delegate totals long before the convention opened. AP staffers in every state helped compile the totals. Delegate positions were assigned on the basis of instructions from state and district parly conventions on whom to support, commitments by primary election laws, personal pledges and statements f r o m delegates favorable to a candidate but not officially bound.

Golf dates bnck to the 15th Century when a ball stuffed with feathers was used. In 1848 the "guttie" —a hard, moulded ball that was the direct forerunner of our modern golf ball —was introduced in Britain. In London, 7!) years bc/orr this innovation, Alexander Cordon perfected his formula for a special gin. Today, golfers the world over relax at the Nineteenth Hole and enjoy the delicate flavour and distinctive dryncss of Gordon's Gin. Some claim that Gordon's offers considerable consolation as they total their score. No wonder it's the biggest seller in England, America, the world! summer sayings!
