Mo., will speak tonight, on his recent evangelistic tour of England. Dr. London is among the ·world's greatest soul winners. In First Methodist church of Waco. Texas, he had 800 conversions. Republican candidate against Mr. Roosevelt but voted for FDU three times running thereafter. Michigan was with Mr. Roosevelt in 1932 and 1936 but for the late Wendell L. Willkic in 1940. Michigan returned to Mr. Roosevelt in 1944. These six are key states. Five of the six would just about guarantee the election of whoever got them and the electoral votes of just more than half of i them would be a nest egg of significant proportions. They will be bitter battle grounds this year. 26C Votes Necessary The substantial Republican trend indicated in congressional election returns after 1936 is not reflected so strongly in electoral votes. All four Republican candidates who ] ran for president against Mr. Roosevelt failed to get enough electoral votes among them to add up to a majority of the electoral college. The college majority necessary to nominate is a minimum of 266 electoral votes. Here is how the Republican candidates fared: Hoover 59; Alf M. Landon 8: Willkie 82: Dewey 99. That adds up to 248 electoral votes in four tries. But the popular vote returns tell a different story. In those figures the Republican trend indicated in congressional elections is pretty well supported by the popular vote for president. Here are the figures: ,, l Roosevelt Rep. Can. 1932 22,821,000 15,761.000 1936 27,476,000 16,679,000 1940 27,243,000 22,304,000 1944 25,602.000 22,006,000 Close Race By Dewey Mr. Roosevelt's pluralities were falling after his triumph of 1936. Here are the pluralities for all four elections: 7.060,000; 10,797,000; 4,939,000; 3,596,000. The popular vote for presidential candidates of both parties was off in 1944 compared with 1940. But even so, Dewey gave Mr. Roosevelt his hardest and closest race. Dewey's showing in 1944 coupled with his record as governor oi New York and the SOCKO manner in which he won re-election in 1946 are the pillars now of his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination. Dewey s 1946 margin over James M. Mead, Democratic candidate for governor, was nearly 700,000 votes. Women Must Watch Figures In U.
