Reagan's Mississippi leaders
admitted yesterday he 1 o s t
ground after skeptical members
of the state's crucial uncoramit-
ted Republican delegation quizz-
ed running mate Sen. Richard
Schweiker about h i s voting
Reagan brought Schweiker to
Jackson in a bid to stop com-
plaints that the Pennsylvania
senator was too liberal. But
after a two-hour closed meet-
ing, Reagan delegate coordina-
tor Swan Yerger conceded that
"we may have lost one or two"
ONE, MAYOR Clyde Whitak-
er of Tupelo, said he was

switching to Ford because of
Schweiker's vote favoring a fed-
eral employment bill.
Before meeting with Missis-
sippi's 31-vote contingent, the
largest remaining uncommitted
bloc, Reagan told reporters he
selected Schweiker to bring the
Republican party together and
to serse the party in the North-
There was no move by the
delegation to abandon its un-
committed s t a t u s after the
meeting, however, and since it
has tentatively decided to abide
by a unit voting rule, all 30
delegates remained in the un-
committed column.

delegate, Ray Edwards, an-
nounced his support for Ford,
calling the selection of Schweik-
er "a stupid blunder" by Rea-
gan. But Ford backers among
the state's delegation said none
of the five remaining uncom-
mitted delegates was converted
to the President's cause during
a White House meeting yester-
day with Ford.
-A r i z o n a GOP chairman
James Colter, who had been un-
committed, declared for Rea-
gan. In a statement issued by

R e a g a n headquarters, Colter
praised Ford's leadership and
courage, but said Reagan could
best translate the present na-
tional mood and attitude "into
an enthusiastic majority and
- . unify the national purpose."
Arizona now stands 27 to 2 for
Reagan. .
-Sen. Clifford Case of New
Jersey told Ford at a White
House meeting that, based on
the first formal poll of the dele-
gation, 60 of his state's 67 votes

--James Baker, Ford's chief
delegate hunter, claimed that
four Reagan delegates in South
Carolina have shifted to uncom-
mitted, mostly because of dis-

satisfaction with R e a g a n's
choice of Schweiker.
ONE OF THE four had told
The AP about his move Tues-
day, but two of the others said
they are still committed to Rea-

positions The fourth wasn't im-
mediately available to confirm
or deny, the Ford claim. Lee

by Baker, said the announce-
ment was "premature; they
just jumped the gin." Baker
said his claims were based on

Get the unbrellas out, because it
looks like rain today. It may not be
so bad, though, because things will cool
down a bit. Today's high will be 78, and
tonight's low will be about 60.
