Or err Star Farr redistricting Battle looms in 25 states intense political Battle Are brewing in the state Legislatures which must redraw congressional District lines As a re ult of the new apportionment announced nov. To by the census bureau., nine states Are slated to gain House seats Ann sixteen to lose seats As a result of the apportionment based on the 1960 population census i he new apportionment goes into effect with the elections of 1962 and will be reflected in the 88th through 93rd congresses�?1963 through 1972. Quot of a Piti on a be y. The party controlling the legislature sees to it that the congressional seats Are so folded contorted and stretched a Cross the map this is called a gerrymandering a a that the opposition party a strength is held to an absolute minimum. In redistricting following the 1950 census. Republicans were in control in most Northern and Western states and re distracted for their own advantage. In key states like California and new York democrats charged that the republicans were carrying out a a reapportionment Over the decade. Republicans have won More c. S. House seats in Northern states than their total popular vote for Congress would seem to have justified. But in Southern states democratic Legislatures have been just As ruthless about gerrymandering and confining any pockets of incipient Republican strength. The tables Are now turned in Many Northern states with democrats in control of the Legislatures. But Republican gains in the 1960 legislature elections including a net gain of nine houses in Northern Legislatures a mean republicans will be on equal terms with democrats in Many of the states important in redistricting. A in new York which loses two seats republicans were Able to maintain their control of both houses of the legislature in the 1960 elections. They Are expected to draw the new District lines to the maximum disadvantage of the democrats who now hold a 22-21 Edge in the congressional delegation. In fast growing California where a jump from 30 to 38 congressional seats is scheduled democrats Are planning retribution for what they charged was blatant Republican gerrymandering following the 1950 census. Republicans failed to regain control of either House of the legislature in the i960 elections. In Florida which is slated to gain four seats for a new total of 12, democrats control the legislature and the governorship. But growing pockets of Republican strength May make it difficult to Cut the republicans out of the gains when the state is re distracted. In Massachusetts which loses two seats democrats were planning to take revenge for Republican gerrymandering of past decades. But while the legislature remains democratic on the bases of the i960 election republicans have elected a governor whose veto Powers May cause a Compromise on redistricting plans. Pennsylvania will lose three seats in 1962, and democrats now control the governorship and both houses of the legislature. Rut it is not expected that democrats will Deal too roughly with Gor interests in the coming redistricting. If a state loses seats and fails to redistrict before the next election All its representatives must run at Large of it gains seats and fails to redistrict Only the new representatives run at Large and the old districts remain intact. Even when population changes within a state have created Gross disparities Between the sizes of House districts the Legislatures rarely redistrict unless the states apportionment figure is changed. Here in Texas where gain a seat there is a Good Chance the legislature might pass redistricting along to a commission. Redistricting will Call for the delicate task of moving the political map around taking some representation from East Texas.

Let me Tell you the secret of my Success. Rut first let me explain that children who grow up in Wash Inchon Horn me rather Blase about the i wheels that spin around Here.

Robby was in town Over the weekend to accept a a personality of Tho year award from the variety club and somebody called me up and asked if i wanted to interview him. So before you ran say a Mack the knife i was on my Way to Bobby a hotel suite with my faithful Indian companion. Or. Zhivago at my Side. I took or. Zhivago along to serve As my interpreter. When got there Bobby a pad looked like a scene from an old Marx Brothers movie. People were going in and out of doors so fast it made me dizzy. Boboly must have a bigger retinue than sex King Farouk. In the midst of this confusion stood the bread Winner himself Clad in a tight fitting silk suit which or. Zhivago mistook for a Matador s costume. A they must he getting ready to Send him into the Bull ring a or. Zhivago whispered. I explained that the suit represented the latest Continental fashion hut or. Zhivago remained dubious.

Sokolsky Jessups Field tie requires explaining congressional quarterly out Moded Law delays presidential election Washington a of sen. John f. Kennedy May be the next president hut he won t he p Esi Dot elect officially for another new weeks. That is because the electors those shadowy figures for whom the nation actually voted on nov. 8�?won�?Tt meet to cast their ballots in the various states until dec. 19. Since the democratic nominee is assured of receiving the required majority of the 537 electoral votes what happens Dee 19 will or a formality. But that Date could have unparalleled significance if anything were to happen to sen. Kennedy in the meantime. No person it feted to the presidency or the vice presidency has died Between the Date of his election and that of his inauguration. If such an event were to occur however the Date fixed by Law for the electors to vote would d Fermine the ensuing Legal situation. After dec 19, the men receiving a majority of the electoral ballots Are officially recognized As the preside elect and the vice president e Kcf even though the ballots Are not counted by Congress until Jan. 6 two weeks before the Date fixed for the presidents term to begin and end if. On Jan ?9, a the president elect shall have died the vie president elect Shell become Prev id nth pursuant to the 20th amendment to the Constitution. So sen. London r. Johnson would become provident if sen. Kennedy were to die any time after Dee. 19. And if the vice pres tent elect were to die after that Date the office would remain vacant tint ii the in it quadrennial election. There is no provision in the Constitution however that would Rover such eventualities if they occurred before dec. 19 the Elv tors would still he free to choose a president or a vice president. A the problem in such a ease would be a political said the House report on the 20th amendment a for if the political party of d not in some manner designate a pers it n. The electors representing that political party would probably so scatter their votes that the election would be thrown into the logically the winning party might be expected to designate the vice presidential nominee As its presidential nominee if the latter were to die before the electors voted and to name someone else to second place if the former were to die. But there Are no precedents and it is anybody glides to what might Bonteen happily there is no reason to suppose that the problem will arise in i960 or any other year. It ii apparent however that a eth Frederick v. Field an avowed communist resigned As secret Ary of the Institute of Pacific relations by sending this amazing Telegram to or. Philip Jessup who held various important positions in that organization which had such an enormous influence upon american policy in China and is now elected to the International court.
