Each voter will not only be
able to express his first choice
for President, but also his sec

voters only marked the ballot
beside their first choice.
The change in ballots is a re
sult of a law passed by the state
legislature in 1949. In advocat
ing the bilL Sen. John Mc-
Knight, its introducer, said it
would enable voters to cast their
ballots first for a favorite son

choice votes to a ' man with a

Senator " McKnight contended
that in 1948 Senator Vandenburg
of Michigan, who did no com-pai.-ning,
would ha- e received
many second-choice votes in that

If there is no second-choice

gued, there is no true test of
