counted on something close to
a sweep to re-establish his
standing as a winner in advance
of the crucial California pri-
marv on June 8. Reagan's man-
agers said the former California
governor would have to win that
home state test to gain the nom-
ination, and they forecast that
he would.
A standoff worked to the ad-
vantage of the President; he
was the delegate leader and it
was up to Reagan to turn that
around.
There was a touch of irony in
the Kentucky outcome. Repub-
licans there already have se-
lected the people to represent
them at the national convention
-and a majority prefers Rea-
gan. But some of them will have
to cast their first ballot votes for
Ford in accordance with the
primary verdict.
REAGAN SAID in Los Ange-
les that the California primary
will be "very important, in fact,
the most important." He said
he wasn't disappointed about
Kentucky and Tennessee. "I
can't feel badly coming as close
as I am in these border states,"
he said.
Carter won big in the South;
77 per cent in Tennessee, 62 per
cent in Arkansas, 59 per cent in
Kentucky. In each case, Ala-
bama Gov. George Wallace was
far back in second place. Rep.

Morris Udall, who had made a
campaign effort in those states,
wasn't close, but said he was
not disheartened. He said he
went in with limited expecta-
tions "and I got limited results."
Carter said he had suffered
in Oregon for lack of organiza-
tion. But he had staged an in-
tensive late campaign in a state
where Church worked hardest
and Brown bid for write-in
votes.
"I'M GOING to scramble,"
Carter said. "I don't take any-
thing for granted . . . I don't
have to win them all."
But Brown beat Carter in
Maryland a week ago, Church
stopped him in Nebraska two
weeks ago, and those setbacks,
coupled with yesterday's deci-
sions, raised new obstacles to
the Carter effort to fashion a
nominating majority. It was
likely he would go to the con-
vention short of that mark, and
in need of momentum and bar-
gaining power to head off an
opposition likely at some point
to coalesce against him.
Carter said he might or might
not be willing to do some horse
trading for uncommitted dele-
gates at the convention. "It
would depend on whether it was
legitimate or profitable and if
the terms of the agreement
could be made public," he said
