Before being submitted to tbc secretary of state petitions for each elector must bear tho slgnn-turcs of Qualified voters. Separate, petitions must be circu- lated and submitted for each, pro- posed elector, Minnesota, having nine representatives In Congress and two senators, Js entitled to 11 presidential' electors. The October 2- noon deadline for submitting petitions to the secre- tary of state is set by law to permit time for checking and printing of ballots. Political leaders felt certain Wal- lace supporters would seek to file a complete slate of electors. He Is generally regarded as strong In the state and Minnesota has twice given strong support to third party can- didates.

Cheers Entrance of Third Party Politicians See Upset Chance Than on La Follette Henry A, Wal- lace's crusading entry the presidential race as .an Inde- pendent was tabbed by the Repub- lican high command today as mart- Ing the "disintegration" of Democratic party. But some Demo- crats contended their party would be strengthened.- Chairman Carroll Recce of O.O.P. national committee led Re- publican cheers for Wallace's at- tempt, at the first serious third party effort since 1924. He "Mr. Wallace's announcement should cause no surprise. It merely makes official the tragic disintegra- tion of the once great party of Jefferson and process to which. Republicans have been call- ing attention for years. Refers to Pendenrast "The Moscow wing of the Demo- cratic party has now parted com- pany from tho Pcndcrgast wing-. The tattle between the two will he highly interesting and. sibly, entertaining to tho nnd the nation will be the winner when both gangs Recce alluded to President Tru- man's former connection with Pcndcrgast Democratic political or- ganization In Kansas City. While many Democrats privately expressed fear that Wallace may take vital votes away from President in key political states. Representative McCormack (Mass.) assistant House minority lender. contended that the party Wallace bolted will' be stronger because of tho former vice-president's third party candidacy. "The votes we may lose." Mc- Cormack told a reporter, "will more than offset by those voters who will vote the Democratic ticket because of Mr. Wallace's attempt to create confusion." At the Wblto House, Presidential Press- Secretary Charles a. told .reporters, "there will be no comment" froni'PresIcTont Truman. Wallace's entry Into the Held a. third candidate propelled Amer- ican relations with Russia into race as an Issue. It apparently shook the political structure of the party he served as vice-president and possibly reshap- ed the die from which the Repub- lican nominee will emerge. See Little Chance Politicians'are almost unanimous In their Judgment that Wallace has an even smaller chance of election than tho late Robert M. La Follette. ST., who carried only Ills home state of Wisconsin under the Progressive banner in 1924. La Follette polled votes, more than any ob- servers think Wallace will get de- spite a vast Increase in the elec- torate. Despite public statements dis- counting the effect of- Wallace's move, there, was ample the Democrats fear its possible ef- fect Jn such key states as New York, California, Washington, UU- nols and Michigan. Senator Milllkln of Colorado, chairman of tho Republican confer- ence, named those particular areas in declaring that Democratic hopea for 1948 had suffered "a major blow." There is some doubt, however, that Wallace can get on the ballot In the states Millikln listed. In oth- (Conttnued on Pave 3. Col THIRD PARTY Economist Fears Recession Coming New York Economist Ro- bert Nathnn said Monday predic- tions by many economists of a recession in 1047 arc wrong as to timing but will come true before many months unless positive and prompt action Is taken to remedy what he called an unsound eco- nomic situation. Nathan, former chairman of the War Production board planning committee and later deputy war mobllizcr, said one of the big In making 1947 a boom year was an extremely Heavy accumulation of Inventories in the hitter months of tho year. The.39-ycar-old economist, author of .the controversial wage-profit survey for the CJ.O. one year ago. said inventory accumulations are bound to slow down before long. He added that the Marshall plan at best will merely maintain the cur- rent export level.
