include an endorsement of Carter.
SHORTLY BEFORE the vote on the
nomination, Kennedy formally
released the delegates pledged to his
fallen campaign "so that they may be
free to vote their conscience."
California Gov. Edmund Brown Jr.,
once a candidate himself, urged
Democrats to unite behind Carter.
"Putting aside the fights of this season,
he needs us as we need him," Brown
said in endorsing Carter.
Carter's qualified endorsement of a
Kennedy jobs plank in the Democratic
platform drew approval from a
Michigan labor official, and from civil
rights leader Jesse Jackson.
SAM FISHMAN, DIRECTOR of the
United Auto Workers' political arm in
Michigan, said he was happy with Car-
ter's position. "I think it will be helpful
to his campaign," Fishman said.
Jackson said Carter had heeded "the
mandate of the people" by promising
his own program for jobs.
A new convention rule required Car-
ter to delcare in writing his support for
the platform, while itemizing any dif-
ferences with it. Carter promised to
"proudiy run on the platform of the
Democratic Party" in the campaigna
But he did so on his own terms.

BONN, West Germany (AP)-Chancellor Helmut
Schmidt, pursuing his aim of building bridges between East
and West, will visit East Germany this month for the first
summit between leaders of the two German states.
Government spokesman Armin Gruenewald announced
yesterday that Schmidt accepted an invitation to meet East
Germany Chairman Erich Honecker Aug. 28-29 at a lakeside
hunting lodge north of East Berlin.
SCHMIDT, THE FIRST Western leader to travel to
Moscow after the Soviet thrust into Afghanistan, will leave
Hamburg Aug. 27 for the talks and will stop in the East Ger-
man cities of Guestrow and Rostock on his way home.
Schmidt's visit $o the communist German state will be the
first by a West German head of government since 1970 when
Chancellor Willy Brandt went to Erfurst for talks with East
German Premier Willi Stoph.
But Stoph was the No. 2 man in the East German regime
and the Schmidt-Honecker meeting will be the first full scale
West German-East German summit since the division of
Germany following World War II.
THE MEETING HAD been expected to take place last
February but was postponed at East Germany's request
following the deterioration in East-West relations brought on
by the Soviet move in Afghanistan.
Although no formal agenda has been made public, the two
sides are expected to discuss trade, cultural exchanges and
expanded contacts between family members in both coun-
Joining Schmidt will be Economics Minister Otto Lam-
bsdorff and Egon Franke, chief of the Bonn ministry that
monitors events in East Germany.
DURING THE TALKSthe East Germans are expected to
raise objections to Schmidt's support of NATO plans to
station medium range nuclear missiles on West German soil.
The missile issue was a major topic during Schmidt's
talks last June in Moscow with Soviet President Leonid
Brezhnev. During those talks, Brezhnev dropped his demand
that the West renounce plans to deploy medium range
nuclear missiles before he would negotiate a reduction in
Soviet missiles already in place.
In a recent television interview, Schmidt listed im-
provements in human rights for East Germany's 14 million
people when asked about possible results of his visit.
