National Review;10/10/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 39, p1117
The article focuses on the political convention of the U.S. Libertarian Party held in New York. Roger MacBride of Charlottesville, Virginia was elected as its presidential standard bearer and David Bergland of Newport Beach, California as his running mate. Some of the guest of the convention included professor Murray Rothbard and doctor John Hospers. Voting rights were so constructed that Nevada's delegation in the convention was larger than Iowa's. The first general session opened with an address by Hospers.
