Then they walked all the way across to the opposite boundary. "Why, this is so a big place," I throw a bull by the tail. It is no consolation to the Robbs that Burke's hints that it won't be adamant even about the grandfathers, just so long as there are "It's more lawn than I want to mow, and that's for sure, Burke's or no Burke's," said Mr. R. and ha added consolingly, "always remember you can scrounge up a pair of and all district delegates are elected.

Here are the detailed each of the 16 states—arranged in chronological order — where presidential primaries will be held this year: NEW HAMPSHIRE. The state's primary includes both election of national convention delegates and a popularity test among presidential candidates. Results of the latter are purely advisory. Delegates may run pledged to a candidate (his consent is then needed); "favorable to" their choice (consent not requir- edi; or unpledged. Candidate consent is unnecessary for entry in the popularity poll. Results of the delegate vote are legally binding on candidates, but to abide by the results of the popularity poll. Legally bound to back the winner in convention. WISCONSIN. No popularity test, only delegate voting. Consent required. Delegates run on slates approved by presidential candidates, or run uninstructed. Elected by district and at-large. Winners, if pledged, must vote for candidate until released or until he gets less than 10 per cent of convention vote. •ILLINOIS. Popularity and delegate contests. No consent needed.

Delegates may run pledged not to specific candidate, but only to district or statewide popular choice. But custom is to run un- pledged, view preferential test as advisory. If bound, however, delegate must use "all honest means within his power to aid in'securing the nomination" of his candidate (the popular winner). Voting by districts and at-large. MASSACHUSETTS. Delegate election only. Delegates may run unpledged, or pledged to specific candidate. If pledged, need candidate's consent. Preference goes on ballot. Results assumed to be morally binding only on pledged winners, since statute contains no legal instructions. ' Voting by districts and at-large. MARYLAND. Both popular and delegate contests. Consent required. Odd quirk here: popularity test is | at county and district level. Dele- j gates to state convention elected simultaneously, and are legally bound to vote there for presidential winner in their area. Must support him so long as he has chance to win majority or he has support from delegates of any nine counties. Presidential candidate who wins state convention balloting gets all the national convention delegates, who are chosen at that time. They then bound to vote for winner in national meeting so long as hope of his nomination exists. OHIO. Delegate contest only. Delegates must run pledged to specific candidate, and also name second choice. Candidate consent required. Balloting by district and at-large. Candidate's name on ballot with his slate. Winners bound to exert "best efforts" to achieve nomination of their choice. FLORIDA, Primary optional, but if called, there is no popularity test, only a delegate election.

Consent required. Popular voting advisory only.- Delegates not pledged, nor do they indi- campaign committee action is not needed. Only the candidate's name appears on the ballot; a vote for him is a vote for all his delegates. They are selected at-large, with attention to fair geographic distribution. Winner takes all. Delegates are bound to support their man "to the best of their judgment and ability" in the convention. SOUTH DAKOTA. Delegate contest only. Delegates run at-large. They may run unpledged or pledged to particular candidates. If pledged, they must have formal consent of candidate, or specific authority for an agent to act for him. Delegates may be grouped on the ballot as a slate if they wish. Their pledge is presumed morally binding only. v Insects do not grow after once attaining the adult stage.
