But only about 64',3 million actually will vote, the bureau said last week, if the same proportion of voting-age men and women cast ballots as in 1956. The total presidential vote four years ago was 62,027,000, or GO.4 per cent, of the I02.72t>,000 civilians who were then of voting age. Tile census estimate of the number who will be of voting age on Nov. 8 — 16,974,000 — excludes about 1.9 million members of the armed forces at home and abroad and an unknown number of civilians abroad, some of whom would be eligible to vote. Women of voting age, estimated at oft.l million, will outnumber men by about 5.2 million. If members of the armed forces were included, the difference would be cut to about 3.4 million. Census said its total includes "a great many persons who, although old enough to vote, cannot do so." Among the latter are about 2.75 million aliens; residents of jails, mental hospitals and the District of Columbia: and some who have not satisfied state requirements as to residence, registration or poll- tax payment. In 1784 an Indian mound on the Rivanna River in Virginia was excavated by an amateur archeologist who later became President o! the United States: Thomas Jefferson.
