The 12th Amendment was ratified in 1804.

Republican candidate for president tan R neck and neck race next November and angry Mississippi Decided to withhold Us electoral ^ote Instead of casting it, or named electors Instructed to vote for some Democrat other than Mr. Truman for president. Mississippi has nine electoral votes. It could be that Mr. Truman and his Re- Dublican opponent would divide the remaining 522 electoral votes equally, each getting t fal 361 and each being just five short of the baie majority necessary tor election. Each State Has Single Void The electoral college would be powerless to function under such circumstances. The House would I proceed then under the 12th amend- I ment to choose a president from I among the three candidates with the most electoral votes, assuming there were as many as three wi'.h any electoral votes. The amendment gives each slate a single vote and provides the winner must receive the vote of a majority of all the states, meaning that the minimum number of vote.*; which can elect a president in the House is 25. - It the House is unable to elect m president by March 4 following ^the election, the project is abandoned and the vice president talk's the high oliice. Bui if Mississiry' or other Southern states also had refused to cast ballots for vice president and the office was not /illeri in the usual manner, it would be up to the Senate to elect him. The constitution permits the Senate to choose between the two persons having the highest number uf electoral votes for vice president. Election would be by a simple Senate majority which is 49 votes. The newly elected vice president would be sworn Into that office and thereafter be sworn as president. Truman Attitude On Marshall Plan Approval Rapped NASHVILLE. Tenn., Feb. 10. lUP) —S"l). Kenneth Wherry. R, Ne;>.. acting Republican Senate majority leader, last nigh! criticized the "al'l or nothing" attitude of President ) man toward approval of the Mari .all Plan. A. "We ran; to help Europe all we •win." Wherry told a Lincoln Day gathering, "but we don't want to bankrupt America. There is nor'ninc: wrong with Europe, provided they have the opportunity, that hard work won't cure." Wherry, who appeared on the same program with GOP National Committee. Chairman B. Carroll Recce, charged thai Mr. Truman is demanding "rubber stamp and blank check" powers from Congre,« reminiscent of "the Nen- De.-il tcc.-'- nirtue." Wherry blamed the current fuel shortage on the Democratic administration which he said had permitted the sale of scarce pipe nnd 86 oil tankers abroad.
