Everything's coming
up Jimmy Carter

Carter wins nomination

Continuedronmma Page)
the governor worked for and
I think it's something the peo-
ple of the United States need-
for Jimmy Carter to become
the next president of the United
States.
There were cheers from dele-
gates for Morris Udall and Jer-
ry Brown when their candidates
received small blocks of votes,
but upon Carter's victory even
these Democrats showed their
willingness to step under the
Georgian's banner.
"Brown said he'd go right
down to the wire and i'll go
right down with him," said
Maryland State Senator Clar-
ence Mitchell. "And I don't
think Jimmy Carter would want
it any other way, because if I
go down to the wire with Brown
I'll go down to the wire with
Carter once he's nominated. If
he wins the nomination I'll cer-
tainly support him 100 per
cent."
THERE WAS evidence last
night of Carter's efforts to co-
alesce the party's leftrand right
wings. Mayor Richard Daley
of Chicago, a patriarch of the
party's conservative faction,
thundered Ilinois's support for
"the next president of the U.
S.", and New York Congress-
woman Bella Abzug, an affirm-
ed liberal and feminist, made
her support equally clear.
As a spokeswoman for wo-
men Democrats, Abzug took

pains last night to emphasize
that the controversial plan on
women's rights formed by the
Carter forces was more than
acceptable to her.
"It was no compromise," she
declared. "I think it was a very
important settlement, for wo-
men as well as for Carter."
Wearing the beige straw hat
which has become her trade-
mark, Abzug turned to New
York delegates, noticed a pro-
abortion "Freedom of choice"
toaster, and yelled, "Raise that
banner, we can't see it, we
can't see it!"
But there was some bitter-
ness over the victory of the
Carter steamroller. "I feel like
this is a lot of nonsense," said
Udall delegate Madelene Van
Arsdell of Udall's own Ari-
zona. "The whole process is
itst a lot of rhetoric. I'm not at
all sure that we're hearing the
voice of the people. I'm disap-
nointed and frustrated (over
tidall's defeat) but it was worth
it because we had our opinions
voiced by Mo."
"I hope he'll (Carter) be a
good candidate and president
if elected," she continued, "but
I just don't have a gut feeling
about him."
Udall, while wistful, put any
rancor aside for the sake of
unanimity for Carter. "This is
a night for peaches and pea-
nuts," he said. "But not a very
good night for cactus. Someone
once said that when Democrats
form a firing squad, they as-
semble in a circle, but t'm here
to tell you that this party is
together and it will stay eto-
gether. Tomorrow I'm enlisting
as a soldier in the Carter cam-
paign.,"

(Continued from Page1)
At that point in the roll call,
the convention erupted into
cheers. The band played, the
Carter signs waved among the
state standards, the rhythmic
applause sounded.
Carter - the given name is
James Earl Jr.-won without a
real convention contest after a
campaign drafted with blueprint
precision and conducted to spe-
cifications.
UDALL DREW a farewell
ovation for his candidacy as he
released his delegates before
the roll call and promised to
become a soldier in the Carter
cause. He urged liberal Demo-
crats to join him.
Later, Brown took his turn,
from the microphone in the Cal-
ifornia delegation, at the far
corner of the arena. He said
Carter can handle the nation's
problems. "He's proved that to
you, he's proved it to me,"
Brown said,
And so ended the relatively
brief campaign of the 38-year-
old Californian. "The California
delegation votes 278 votes for
Gov. Carter, and we're on our
way to victory," he said.
FINALLY, THE vote by ac-
clamation, and the formality of
Bogg' announcement: "G o v.
Jimmy Carter of Georgia . .
is hereby declared the 1976
Democratic nominee for Presi-
dent."
Carter said after the vote that
he had "pretty much made up
his mind" on a vice presidential
choice, but had told no one and
would not until today.
His publicly disclosed list of
prospects included six senators.
Convention speculation centered
on two of them: Edmund Mus-
kie of Maine and Walter Mon-
dale of Minnesota.
THE OTHERS Carter inter-

viewed were Sens. John Glenn
of Ohio, Frank Church of Idaho;
Adlai Stevenson III of Illinois
and Henry Jackson of Washing-
ton.
The soft-voiced former gover-
nor of Georgia had installed
himself as the Democratic front-
runner from the outset of the
presidential primary competi-
tion and now he stood alone,
triumphant over a field that
had, at one time or another, in-
cluded 13 rivals.
Carter, 51, w h o s e broad,
gleaming smile masks a tough,
calculating campaigner, gave a
gentle ptsh of his fist and mur-
mured "Yea" as the Ohio dele-
gates sealed his nomination. It
was testament to his adroit, in-
tensive campaigning that his
nomination was ratified by a
convention marked by such har-
mony and predictability that
more than a few delegates said
they were bored,
As the convention's third ses-
sion adjourned just before mid-
night Democratic N a t i o n a 1
Chairman Robert Strauss dis-
played the latest edition of the
New York Daily News emblaz-
oned with the headline "It's Car-
ter." It was all along.
Boggs abided by the rules and
dispatched a 14-member delega-
tion to advise the convention's
choice-and ask whether he will
accept. He will, tonight.
His victory was magnified for
the fact that he began from no-
where, with neither national
reputation nor visible power
base. He ran as a critc of Wash-
ington, and as a rival of the
senior Democrats w h o have
wielded party power from the
Senate for nearly a generation.
HE CAME OUT of the Deep
South, the Plains, Ga., school

board, the state Senate, the
State House of Atlanta. He did
it with a close-knit cadre of
campaign managers and aides,
and without the counsel or as-
sistance of party elders and
power brokers.
They all signed aboard, but
only after the contest was over,
accepting the inevitable a
month before the convention.
But he turned back to Wash-
ington, and to the Senate, for
his vice president, saying he
needed to add that dimension to
his ticket. But he gave no ad-
vance inkling of his choice-
and unlike most of his predeces-
sors, he didn't have to clear it
with anyone.
THUS THE convention, and
the ticket, belonged to Carter.
So did the one surprise left
to the Democrats, his choice of
a v i c e presidential running
mate. Carter took unusual pre-
cautions to keep it secret until
he is ready to announce his de-
cision at 10 a.m. EDT today.
Carter watched, smiling at
the television set in his hotel
suite, as his name was placed
in nomination by Rep. Peter
Rodino of New Jersey. Rodino,
who presided over House pro-
ceedings on the impeachment of
Richard Nixon, recalled the
trauma of Watergate and said
Carter can r e s t o r e "mutual
trust between our people and
their government."
He said America's faith was
shaken by Watergate, by Nix-
on's resignation, and by Presi-
dent Ford's "issuance of an un-
timely pardon, which outraged
the American sense of justice."
But Rodino said Carter is a
man of good heart and honest
purpose, a candidate who can
heal those wounds.
