An Associated Press survey of 11 Southern states indicates that in only three — Mississippi, Alabama and South Carolina — does I Iherr appear to be any significant possibility that major party nom inecs might be denied electoral votes. Even if the sum total of 25 elec- (toral 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 House selects the president only if none of the candidates receives a majority of the electoral votes. If tlie House renders the verdict each state delegation casts a single vote, regardless of the state's size. Not Enough Despite the closeness of the popular vote results in 1960, President Kennedy still would have been elected if the 25 had been lopped off his 303 electoral vote total. Election in 1964 will require a minimum of 270 electoral votes. Govs. Ross Barnett of Mississippi and George Wallace of Alabama have been promoting the independent elector scheme as a side their states — and some Within Wallaces's — are wary of bolting. Republicans, hopeful of collecting some Southern electoral 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 Bnrnett, appears likely to be successful if the Republicans choose a liberal candidate. Under state law, party conventions could put both loyalist and uninstructcd 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 could petition its way onto that ballot, but could not use the party emblem. Mississippi gave its nine electoral votes to the Slates Rights ticket headed by Strom Thurmond in 1948. Its eight unpledged electors voted for Sen. Harry F. Byrd, D-Va., in 1960. Urges Movement Alabama—Wallace has urged Dixie Democrats to join in a movement he says can keep either major party candidate from legislature. Leaders do not expect it to he revived. Texas — No indication anywhere in the state of any movement aimed at choosing un- pledged electors. More Heads Seen OTTAWA — Plans have been announced in Canada to accelerate the highway building program in the province of Quebec. in 1960 coffee accounted for 74 per.cent of Haiti's exports, sisal, 13 jpdr cent per cent. and sugar 2 AFBVAsfa Restriction On Imports WASHINGTON (AP) — the American Farm Bureau Federation called on the government today to restrict Imports from the European Common Market court- tries in retaliation for new bar- riers raised by them against tl.S. farm products. The request was made by feu- reau President Charles B. Shuman of Sullivan, 111., id a letter to Christian A. Hotter, the President's special representative for trade negotiations. Herter is in Brussels trying to obtain some rasing of barriers against Artieri- caii farm items. The Common Market countries —France, West Germany, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxemburg — have been setting up a common agricultural policy designed to provide their farmers with greater protection from Imports. So far, U.S. exports of poultry have been cut sharply as a result of new Variable Import fees and other restrictions. Grain also faces similar barriers. Sluiman said the Trade Expansion Act passed by Congress last year gave the President authority to suspend, withdraw or prevent the application of benefits this country has accorded West European products In this coun- try's trmrkets.

But Democratic politicians out- ate 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.

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 state. J. Drake Edens, Republican state 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 of doing things." 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." Demo or GOP 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, ft'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 considered part of the once solid South. Any movement for un- pledged electors would have to come at next spring's party convention but there are no signs of any campaign for it, Georgia Moderate 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 boiled their party ticket, Arkansas — Any successful independent elector movement would have to have the support of Gov. Orval E. Faubus, who gave reluctant backing to Kennedy in 1960. Tom Harper, Democratic state chairman, and William Spicer, Republican chairman, say nobody has expressed an interest in such a movement. Arkansas stayed with President Harry S. Truman against the 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 outspokenly against the measure. Florida — An unpledged electors bill died, in the 1963 slat* Rte. 67 GODFREY MONTICELLO PLAZA SHOPPING CENTER LAST 8 DAYS OF OUR BIG QUITTING BUSINESS SALE!
