NEW YORK W)-By a. year from now we'll know the results of another national election. How large looms the new factor of television in the workings of .the old American election system in 1956? ..Very large, everyone agrees, The television audience in next year's campaign will be almost twice what'it was, in 1952. As a result, industry sources expect the major parties to spend almost twice what .they did, on television and radio, in the :last race. There are no accurate figures available, on. what the major parties, spent on broadcasting. and telecasting in 1952. The Hatch Act puts a ceiling on a political party's campaign. expenditures, but there is no limit on the amount of. money various interested voters' groups may raise and spend in promoting a favored candidate. , Five Million Allocated ^ ' National Democratic Chairman Paul Butler says his party wfll allocate about iive million dollars to radio and television. Political observers 'believe "it will amount to a good deal more when all interested voters' groups have passed the hat. ..• National Republican Chairman Leonard :W. Hall has mentioned a radio-TV budget of two million 'dollars. But before the campaign is over -it's expected the Republicans will be spending at least as much as the Democrats. •"What can politically-interested TV viewers'expect in 1956? Complete Coverage " First of' all, complete 'and inten-! sified' coverage'-df'-"the national political conventions in Chicago and San Francisco next August: on .the ..three .major networks: ABC,'. CBS arid NBC. Radio coverage by these three and -Mutual also is certain. ; This year all networks plan intensified, off-floor coverage of committee meetings and convention personalities. All hope to have working agreements with the convention ' chairmen to assure the watching nation less sitting around the' set waiting ..for something to happen than was.the case in 1952.
