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 axe purely advisory. Delegates may run pledged to a candidate (his consent is then needed); "favorable to" their choice (consent not required) ; or unpledged.

Other at-large delegates named by state committee or convention. Delegates run un- pledged; no statutory instructions of any kind. No presidential candidate names on ballot. County leaders usually frame slates, but rivalries ca"h develop. PENNSYLVANIA. Both delegate and popular balloting. 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 j 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 of candidate unnecessary if delegate wishes to note preference. Candidate name goes on ballot beside his. This is presumed to be the man he intends to vote for in convention, but he is not legally bound. Voting is by district and at-large.* WEST VIRGINIA. Popularity and delegate contests. 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.

With the new addition, this made us the undisputed masters of 11.17 acres, plus mortgage. "Granted this isn't big enough to spit at in Texas, it makes a real nice home in New Jersey," said my spouse. "Just let anyone try any such nasty, disgusting thing on my farm," I said with some indignation, 'and I will bop him on the nose!" And when a realtor called us two days later and offered us only $1,500 less than we had paid, we were jubilant. "I guess that proves city slickers don't always get stung," I crowed. "Why, those people down the road were offered $2,200 less than they paid! and for only 4.59 acres, too!" So we went along in a rosy glow for several days, with the Robbs happy as larks in the landed gentry. But things are tough all over, only j not tough enough in some depart- i family.

What with this and that, things ain't what they used to be in England, including the landed gentry. The minimum qualifications for inclusion in this pleasant cate- ;ory by Burke's was once 500 acres and ten generations of solid family tree without a blemished bough. But taxes, socialism and austerity lave shaken the old standards to their roots, and the coming edition of Burke's landed gentry will include anyone with 200 acres who can name his own grandfather or a reasonable facsimile. As you can see, Burke's has lowered its sights, but it still hasn't drawn a bead 'on us.

"It's more lawn than I want to mow, and that's for sure, Burke's or no Burke's." said Mr. R. and ho added consolingly, "always remember you can scrounge up a pair of grandfathers or better fo open."
