Carter platform


Dems call for government
reform, guaranteed income

NEW YORK 0P) - At the big-
gest show off Broadway, Demo-
crats approved Jimmy Carter's
campaign platform early today
and denounced Republicans as
veto-happy modern Tories, while
the nominee-in-waiting consider-
ed a vice presidential choice to
complete his cast.
The platform was approved
by voice vote, just as the Demo-
cratic National Convention script
said it would be. It was pre-
sented in a succession of speech-
es that assumed filibuster pro-
portions, to delegates and re-
porters who milled about the
ยข r floor, crowded the aisles and
kept talking among themselves.
.d gBY MIDNIGHT, many of the
delegates had drifted away,
leaving rows of empty seats on
A f{ ,.:" . the floor of Madison Square
With the platform, the Demo-
crats vowed a drive against un-
employment, a start on federal
programs of health insurance
and guaranteed minimum in-
}< i come, and an effort to reform
and streamline the government.
They also said they would try
to save money and would cut
defense spending by $5 billion
x to $7 billion.

adopted, Gov. Wendell Anderson

sional leader reported, and a
Carter spokesman denied, that
the former Georgia governor
had decided that either Sen.
Edmund Muskie of Maine or
Sen. Walter Mondale of Minne-
sota would be his running mate.
Carter's press secretary, Jody
Powell, said the list of vice
presidential prospects is still six
senators long. That stirred skep-
ticism, but Powell insisted it
was so. He said the field will

not be narrowed until late to-
day, that Carter will then speak
to all six prospects, and that
the decision will be announced
tomorrow morning.
N i n e Democratic governors
arranged to see Carter today to
discuss the vice presidency.
Gov. Reubin Askew of Florida
said the governors want to aid
the candidate "to whatever ex-
tent we can be helpful to him."

HHH draws cheers,
blasts GOP, Ford
Special To The Daisy
NEW YORK-Senator Hubert Humphrey, the grand old man of
the Democratic Party, drew the loudest approval heard here yes-
terday when he climbed to the banner-shrouded podium at Madison
Square Garden to address his assembled party peers.
One would have thought he was the delegate's presidential
nomination choice.
"I WANT to thank Bob Strauss (Democratic Party Chair-
man), that scheduling genius, for letting me take on Pete Rose and
the rest of the All Stars," Humphrey said, referring to the fact
that his convention address coincided with the airing of the
baseball all star game. "Only an optimistic Democrat would take
on the All Stars and the Republicans at the same time, and I'm
the man," he said, punctuating his claim by waving his hands
in the air.
Humphrey's hearty reception made the preceeding welcome
for Senator George McGovern - the ghost of convention past-

special To The Daily
NEW YORK-There are those in this
Democratic convention city who have
dubbed the four day affair the "Jimmy
Carter Coronation." But not Mo Udall.
Wearing a smile to rival the former
Georgia governor's best, Rep. Morris
Udall of Arizona yesterday told a rau-
cous contingent of reporters and his
delegates that his campaign for the
Democratic presidential nomination has
not yet seen its final days.
"ONE OF THE hallmarks of this con-
vention is that we have no suspenses,
we have no surprises," said Udall. "I
just want to remove one of the few
doubts left.
"I think I'm going to honor (some per-
sonal considerations) by having my
name put in nomination Wednesday
night," he said.
The standing ovation which followed
Udall's announcement showed that that's
what his delegates were there to hear,
"MO! MO! MO! Mol Mo!" his re-

maining disciples chanted. "He's still
my man," an Arizona delegate yelled
above the applause.
Udall's drive for the presidential nom-
ination-like all other Democratic can-
didate's drives -has been sufficiently
snuffed by the successful Carter ma-
chine during the waning months of this
election year. But Udall, still displaying
the same vigor he brought to his cam-
paign at the start, isn't surrendering to
Carter yet.
"I am well aware that governor Jim-
my Carter will win a first ballot nom-
ination on Wednesday night, and my
decision to have my name placed in
nomination is not based on any last
ditch opposition to the majority will of
the convention," said the Congressman.
"RATHER, IT is based on the fact
that large numbers of Udall delegates
have asked and urged that it be made
possible for them to cast a symbolic
vote for the things our campaign stood
for," he continued.
