ifope Facfes /or Formation of New Political Movement in Dixie By JACK HULL WASHINGttJN (At>) 4 An urn pledged elector movement aimed At forcing the choice of the next president by the Mouse of Representatives appears to be withering on the political vine in Dixie. An Associated Press survey of 11 Southern states indicates that in only three — Mississippi, Alabama and South Carolina — does there appear to be any significant possibility that major party nominees might be denied electoral Votes. Evert if the sum total of 25 electoral votes of the three states were withheld — which doesn't seem likely—the action would be effective only if the next election provided the closest electoral vote outcome since the Wilson-Hughes contest of 1961. Woodrow Wilson won the presidency by a margin of 23 electoral votes. Under the Constitution, the Mouse select* the president only If none of the candidates receives a majority of the electoral votes. If the House renders the verdict each state delegation casts a sin* gle vote, regardless of the state's size. Despite the closeness of the popular vote results in i960, President Kennedy still would have been elected if the 25 had been lopped off his 363 electoral vote total. Election in 1964 will require a minimum Of 270 electoral votes. Scheme to Defeat Kennedy Govs. Ross Barnett of Mississippi and George Wallace of Alabama have been promoting the independent elector scheme as a means of defeating Kennedy's bid for re-election. But Democratic politicians outside their states — and some within Wallaces's — are wary of bolting. Republicans, hopeful of collecting some Southern electoral i Byrd, D-Va., In i960. votes for their party's nominee, don't like the move. Here is how the situation shapes up on a state by state basis; Mississippi — The unpledged elector movement, supported by Barnett, appears likely to be successful if the Republicans choose a liberal candidate. Under'State law, party conventions could put both loyalist and uninstructed delegations on the ballot of a primary to be held after the national conventions nominate their presidential candidates. The delegation which lost would be dropped from the general election ballot. It c6uld petition its way onto that ballot, but could not use the party emblem, Mississippi gave its nine electoral votes to the States Rights ticket headed by Strom Thurmond in 1948. Its eight unpledged electors voted for Sen. Harry F. Alabama's Movement Alabama—Wallace has urged Dixie Democrats to join in a movement he says can keep either major party candidate from getting a majority of electoral votes. He said this would "create compounded confusions from which we can gain some meaningful concessions." Despite Wallace's stand, Sens. John Sparkman and Lister Hill are expected to support the national Democratic ticket, as are several House members. state. J. Drake Edens, Republican stale chairman, said history has proved that unpledged electors may "offer some attraction in theory" but never work out. When Thurmond was governor and headed the States Rights ticket in 1948, he got 39 electoral votes including South Carolina's eight. The state went to Kennedy in 1960. North Carolina — Bert Bennett, Democratic state chairman, says the unpledged elector movement "is against North Carolina's way Alabama gave its 11 electoral, of doing things." votes to the 1948 States Rights ticket. It split its 1960 votes, giving Kennedy five and Sen. Harry F. Byrd, D-Va., six. South Carolina — E. P. Riley, Democratic state chairman, thinks it's too early to predict whether there will be an un­ pledged elector movement in the Robert Gavin, who recently resigned as Republican state chairman, observed: "I think the fight in 1964 is going to be between the regular Republican and the regular Democratic party." North Carolina always has voted with either the Democratic or Republican parties. Virginia — A bill for unpledged electors which died in the Virginia Legislature in 1962 may be offered again next year. But State Sen. Thomas H. Blanton, Democratic party chairman, said "it won't amount to much — it never amounted to anything in the past." Walter R. Gambill, vice chairman of the state Republican party commented: "The next president of the United States will be elected by the Democrats or by the Republican party. We can't afford to be playing games with any unpledged elector movement. It's a lot of waste motion." Virginia has not gone Democratic in a presidential election since 1948, Tennessee — Having voted Republican in the last three elections, Tennessee no longer is con sidcred part of the once solid South. Any movement for un pledged electors would have to come at next spring's parly convention but there are no signs of any campaign for it. Georgia—Gov. Carl E. Sanders, a moderate on the racial issue, controls the state party machinery and the legislature. He has said he will have no part of any independent elector or third party movement. Segregationists are trying to promote an independent elector ticket, but Democratic State Chairman J. B. Fuqua says, "I don't think it has a chance." Agreeing, Republican State Chairman James W. Dorsey said: "I think the voters of Georgia will make a clear cut choice between the Republican and Democratic nominees." Georgia Democrats have never bolted their party ticket. Arkansas — Any successful independent elector movement would have to have the support tt Gov. Orval E. Faubus, who gavd reluctant backing to Kennedy Irl IflBD. ' Tom Harper, Democratic stflUS chairman, and William Spicer, Republican chairman, say nobody has expressed an interest in such a movement. Arkansas stayed with President Harry S. Truman against th# Dixiecrat movement in 1948. Louisiana — The State Senate killed a bill passed by the House to provide for unpledged electors. Sen. Russell B. Long, D-La., and Rep. Gillis Long, D-La., were out* spokenly against the measure. Florida — An unpledged electors bill died in the 1963 stale legislature. Leaders do not expect it to be revived. Texas — No indication anywhere in the state of any movement aimed at choosing un­ pledged electors.

WILSON United Press International In the simple terms of what really goes on, the Federal Reserve Board's increase in its dis count rate is in recognition of the unhappy fact that the United States is living beyond its income abroad as well as at home. The immediate purpose of the rate increase is to make it more profitable to keep certain money on deposit and drawing interest in the United States than abroad; or, at least, not less profitable to have the money here than elsowhcre. If it works that way, the United States balance of payments position will be improved. The U.S.. balance of payments position is the end result of the all international dealings between the United States and its people and foreign nations and their people. For some years now we have spent or given away abroad a lot more than foreigners have spent in the United States. This deficit in the international balance of payments is made up by payment in U.S. dollars. Accumulated Dollars Foreign individuals and governments happily accumulated these dollars immediately after the war. The U.S. dollar was so sturdy and so much sought that much of the free world used accumulated dollars as backing for its own currency. The dollar, literally, was as good as gold, Better, maybe, because it was handier in the pocket. The U.S. gold dollar also had some gold backing, up to 25 per cent. About $12 billion of the gold hoard accumulated by the United States was and is required to provide that 25 per cent gold backing of the U.S. dollar. Foreign owners of U.S. dollars got a much better deal than that. Each of their dollars was backed by gold 100 per cent. That came about because the Roosevelt administration committed the United States in 1934 to sell to foreigners gold at $35 an ounce. That commitment still holds., So a foreigner with U.S. dollars has been able to demand in exchange U.S. gold to the value of his dollars. The Citizens Foreign Aid Committee calculates that on Dec. 31, 1952, the U.S. gold reserve was $23.2 billion and the gold reserve of all other free world countries was $13 billion. The U.S. gold hoard today is down to $15.6 billion whereas the gold holdings of other free world nations had increased by Dec. 31, 1961, to $23.6 billion. Some Still Hold Dollars The committee calculated that from Dec. 31, 1952, to Dec. 31, 1961, the U.S. balance of payments deficit was about $19.6 billion. Our overseas spending in those years was that much more than we received from overseas. Obviously, many foreigners no longer regard the U.S. dollar as DRIVE- 13 THE CRAZED LOVE OF A PREHISTORIC GIANT FOR A RAVISHING TEEN-AGE GIRL! SATURDAY 1 DAY ONLY TNI NAME WSiTrlW IN BlSoU!

The family had previously visited Nelson's parents at Monrose, Ga. He returned home July 13 and the rest of the family remained for a longer visit with relatives here. good as gold. But some still do hold dollars and that creates another problem. The American Institute for Economic Research at Great Barrington, Vt., calculated in August, 1962, that those outstanding foreign dollar claims already exceeded the capacity of the United States to make good in gold. If the foreigners demanded their gold we could not pay up. This would create a catastrophic chaos in the free world where the dollar is a vital part of the international economy. Chairman Harry F. Byrd of the Senate Finance Committee explained this situation in a speech the other day and added: "I regard this as our most serious fiscal and financial problem." Byrd was being consistent. He abhors living beyond means whether at home or abroad. Son of Rioan Leaves for Germany RIO — Mrs. Hannah Green was notified that her son Pvt. Tommy Green left Ft.
