PAGE 60 Ford, Reagan, Wallace uncommitted T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1976 Presidential hopefuls due on live TV forums WufctacU* eta News Strvict are designed for hard niux:. Tho ^o»x^ i .: -__i TL _ . . *^ WASHINGTON _ A serie^ of live televised forums in which voters will have an opportunity to question presidential candidates has been announced by the League of Women Voters. The series will be broadcast live on the 258 affiliates of the Public Broadcasting System beginning Feb. 23. All of the Democratic candidates except George Wallace have agreed to appear on at least one of the forums. Negotiations with Wallace are still under way. President Ford and Ronald Reagan have not yet decided whether to participate. In making the announcement at a news conference, League President Ruth C. Clusen said: "These forums are designed for hard questions and even harder answers -- a combination long overdue in the political process. There will be no debates, no confrontations, no gimmicks -- just the candidates responding to issues which affect every citizen in this counry." The forums, arranged by Jim Karayn will be the closest thing to a national television debate that the voters have had since the Kennedy-Nixon debates in I960. Elie Abel, dean of the Columbia School of Journalism, will moderate the forums. Karayn said that of the three commercial networks, ·ABC and CBS have expressed interest in covering the forums, NBC, he said, had not yet made any commitment. The dates, locations and issues to be covered in each of the forums, are: New England: Boston, Feb. 23 -- High Employment, Low Inflation and Cheap Energy- Can We Have Them All? Southern States: Miami, March 1 -- From Social Security to Welfare: What's The National Responsibility? Mid-Atlantic States: New York City, March 29 --Who Is Responsible for the Cities? Midwestern States: Chicago, April 26 -- Defense, Detente and Trade: What Are Our Goals? Western States: Los Angeles, May 24 -- Growth and Environment: How Much Can We Control? The commercial networks are now free to cover the forums without fear of demands for equal time from obscure presidential candidates because of a decision last September by the Federal Communications Commission. That decision freed broadcasters from equal time requirements so long as they were involved in "on the spot coverage" of "a bona fide news event." The question will come from an audience of what the League calls "resource people," persons in each region who are involved in politics, business, labor and civic activities. The forums, made possible by a grant to the League of Women Voters. Education Fund from the William Benton Foundation, have received the blessings of Republican Party Chairman Mary Louise Smith and her Democratic counter part, Robert S. Strauss, both of whom attended the news conference. For home delivery of the (Tucson Daily ffilben call 889-4611 The Southern Arizona Dental Society wishes to announce the association of Charles F.
