Georgian promises 'great deeds'
with wire reports
Special to The Daily
NEW YORK - Jimmy Carter,
acknowledging his greatest politi-
cal triumph yet, last night accept-
ed the Democratic nomination for
the presidency of the United States.
^ With Minnesota Senator Walter
d "Fritz" Mondale--the man whom
the Democratic Convention anoint-
ed as Carter's running mate-the
Plains, Georgia peanut farmer now
begins the final leg of his quest
for the presidency.
-'f --"MY NAME is Jimmy Carter" the
Georgian said, greeting his ignited party,
"and I'm running for president. It's
been a long time since I first said those
r*.words, and now I'm here to tell you that
I accept your nomination."
After C a r t e r submitted Mondale's
" name at 10:00 yesterday morning, the
approval of the convention was a fore-
gone conclusion. The Minnesotan was
selected from a list of possible running
mates which diminished as the conven-
tion wore oni; it was generally hetieved
that Mondale wo out over Main e Seator
Edmund Muskie and Ohio Senator John
Glenn. Mondale is thought to give Car-
ter's ticket balance as a Northerner, a
liberal, and a member of Congress,

Reagan criticizes Dem duo

Nanald Reagan said yesterday
that Jimmy Carter's choice of
Sen. Walter Mondale as his hun-
ning mate shoss the Democra-
tic party will continue the phi-
lssophy of big government and
"Out-of-fashion" liberalism.
"This indicates that after all
the brave anti-Washington talk,
we're going to see the usual
kind of Democratic approach-
more of the same things, more
government programs, more
Washington," Reagan said.
M E A N W H I L E acting

like a candidate himself, Presi-
dent Ford congratulated Jimmy
Carter on becoming the Demo-
cratic presidential contender
and expressed hope the forth-
coming election campaign
would be "at a high level."
"I look forward to a good con-
test this fall," Ford told Car-
ter in a two-minute telephone
call from Washington to convey
his comments on Carter's nomi-
nation.- "We'll give the Ameri-
can people a choice," Ford add-
Press secretary Ron Nessen
said later that Ford thought he
and Carter would give the

American people "a real
choice" by pitting the record
of Ford's policies against those
of Carter.
BUT REAGAN, who came to
Mirrisburg to court Pennsyl-
vania's 25 uncommitted dele-
gtes to the Republican Na-
tional Convention, especially
criticized Mondale's proposed
child - care legislation. He
called it "a bill that would in-
ject government into the family
relationship to a greater extent
than it's ever been done in our
nation's history."
The legislation would extend

federal day - care services
through Sept. 3, 1977, at a cost
of $240 million.
"Now I think the Jimmy
Carter that has been presented
as a kind of vague or confusing
figure is going to come into
clearer focus," Reagan.
a member of the liberal wing
of the Democratic party and
added, "I think liberalism is
pretty much out of fashion to-
Reagan, who trails President
Ford by 33 delegates in the race
for the GOP nomination, re-
peated h-is claim that he has a

better chance of winning
against Carter. Reagan said he
made that point in a series of
private meetings with Pennsyl-
vania delegates.
Ford leads Reagan nation-
wide 1,032 to 999 according to
an Associated Press delegate
survey with 1,130 needed for
the nomination In Pennsylvan-
ia, Ford leads 72 to 5 with 25
uncommitted and one delegate
for Sen. Howard Baker of Ten-
There are 172 uncommitted
delegates and 55 still to be
selected this week in Connecti-
cut and Utah.
