(AP)--Underdogs George Wallace and Ronald Reagan, whose campaigns have (altered in every primary race so far, wind up week-long tours of North Carolina on the eve of the nation's sixth presidential primary. President Ford, who has defeated Reagan in four consecutive R e p u b l i c a n p r i m a r i e s , l e f t N o r t h Carolina on a confident note late Saturday night after making appearances in Charlotte, Asheville, Hickory and at a mountain rally near Spruce Pine. "I CAN'T WAIT to sec those results when they come in because they are going to be good," Ford said as he ncared the end of his M-hour trip. It was his second visit to the slate in as m a n y Saturdays. The first one was overshadowed by the suspension of Howard "Bo" Callaway as his campaign manager. Jimmy Carter, who has bested Wallace in every Democratic p r i m a r y so f u r , left the state Friday after two d a y s of campaigning. In Oklahoma during the weekend, Carter collected e i g h t delegates to the Democratic National Convention after congressional district conventions to choose 28 of the state's 37 delegates. The others will be chosen at t h e slate p a r t y convention n e x t month. O k l a h o m a p a r l y o f f i - cials had predicted Carter would get 10 delegates al I he district conventions Saturday, but two expected Carter supporters were among (he 15 uncommitted delegates elected. to predict Ihe outcome of Tuesday's e l e c t i o n . "I don't want lo lalk polilics coming from church," he said. He and his wile, Cornelia, then spent about 45 minutes autographing Bibles. M e a n w h i l e , R e a g a n shook hands with a few members of the G r a c e C o v e n a n t Presbyterian Church in Asheville Sunday and then look a seat inside. Last week, both Wallace and R e a g a n repeatedly vowed to continue in the primaries even it they losl Tuesday. "We are b e h i n d in Norlh Carolina," Wallace Campaign '76 press secretary Billy Jo C a m p s a i d S a t u r d a y . "There's no q u e s t i o n about about it, but we think we can still finish well." L a t e r , C a m p denied making the comments and said, "At this point it looks 50-50 or belter for us." "Some [rails showed us behind last week, but we h a v e picked up momentum since then," he said. Campaign aides agreed that the Wallace organization in North Carolina had underestimated Carter's strength in the stale, and al Ihe same t i m e had " o v e r e s t i m a t e d " W a l lace's following. None of the other m a j o r Demo- c r a t i c candidates is actively campaigning there. Campaign workers said that after Wallace appears at a Faycttevillc rally tonight, the governor and his staff will return to M o n t g o m e r y , A l a . , t o spend two days evaluating his presidential campaign. F I V E delegates w e r e pledged (o former Oklahoma Sen. Fred Harris. According to state party offi- cuits' projections, the final makeup of Die Oklahoma delegation w o u l d be 19 uncommitted, 11 for Carter and seven for Harris. In North Carolina, Wallace and Reagan slowed their pace Sunday and attended church after each stepped up sharp attacks on Iheir chief rivals al every slump Saturday. Wallace, who said Tuesday's North Carolina voting would be a lest of his slrenglh in the South alter his loss in the Florida prim a r y , attended worship services in Charlotte al Noiihside Baptist Church, which has more than 5,000 members. Wallace is a Methodist. "...Let's us all continue lo p r a y for a spiritual revival here in the United States." the A l a b a m a governor told Ihe congregation in a b r i e f sUtc- menl. IN RESPONSE to a re- |xn1er;s question after Ihe service, Wallace declined DELEGATES chosen in the primary are bound to s u p p o r t Ihe candidate through the first ballot. But under parly rules for p r i m a r y s l a t e s w h e r e delegates arc no! directly elected, candidates have veto power over the delegates chosen to represent them in dislricl ami state c a u c u s e s . Presumably t h e n , t h e i r d e l e g a t e s would be strongly bound to them. There is no crossover vote. In Wilkcsboro Reagan w e n l on Ihe offensive Saturday after three days of defending his campaign against repeated calls to siep aside. Claiming grow- i n g slrenglh in c a u c u s states, he questioned the 1'rcsidenl's ability to win in November. The former California g o v e r n o r discarded his standard campaign speech and enumerated .1 list of reasons why Ford is the loser, not he. F o r d , confident of a N o r l h Carolina victory, was looking ahead to political trips I ale in the week to California and Wisconsin, as he relaxed and worked briefly Sunday in the White House Oval Office. FORD'S s u p p o r t e r s hope a slrong Fora victory in North Carolina will deal the fatal blow to Reagan's presidential aspirations. Some m a y o r s , governors and other Republican officials h a v e suggested that the former California governor drop oul of the r a c e in the interest of parly harmony, but Ford said he is not behind those moves and does not care w h e t h e r R e a g a n withdraws. He did say, how- e v e r , l h a t a continued Reagan candidacy could have a potentially divisive effect on the parly. In olher political developments: -- F o r m e r O k l a h o m a Sen. Fred Harris said Sunday he aims to locus his efforts on campaigning in Pennsylvania so that he can make a good showing in Ihe state's Democratic primary April 23. "We are hoarding our money, our resources and our workers and we are going full-time i n t o Pennsylvania," H a r - ris said. Interviewed on the CBS program "Face the Nation," Harris denied thai he has any intention of pulling out of the Democratic r a c e despite his m e a g e r showing in primaries up to now. --Sen. Hubert II. Humphrey s a y s "I'm w e l l equipped" lo lake on Ford in the November election, bul he reaffirmed in a Washington interview he has no intention of entering any primaries. The Minnesota Democrat has said he would accepl a draft al the national convention if the delegates cannot choose, a nominee f r o m the field of candidates. "There's no chance I'm going to be in any of the primaries," H u m p h r e y said in an interview in his Senate office. At the same time, Humphrey admits he'd consider it "a challenge and an honor" lo be the Democratic nominee, --Sen. Frank Church, D- Idaho, the latest Democrat to enter Ihe presidential race, conceded Sunday in a Los Angeles interview l h a t to be a "credible candidate" at the Demo- c r a t i c Nalional C o n v e n - tion, he will have to win in Ihe late primaries, beginning with the Nebraska contest May 11. "I Ihink lhal if I can win in the late primaries I'd come inlo Ihe convent i o n and stand a good chance I h e r e because I would llien be a candidate with momentum," he said. "The late primaries leave a lasting impression on the convention." Church s a i d his c a m - paign was starting off "in a reasonably good financial position," with more than $250,000 in the bank, lie said the campaign has just sent out its first mass mailing for fund-raising.

U.S. R e p . Ronald V. Dellums, D-Calif., in an emotional speech Saturday told the assembly that he could not accept the nomination that had been offered him only minutes before. It was the second time within a week that the choice of the assembly's executive committee had declined to lead the newborn political effort. Georgia state legislator Julian Bond declined the nomination last Monday but addressed the assembly's n a t i o n a l convention to u r g e t h e m to continue their efforts. ' "THIS IS NOT my role and this is no I my moment," Dellums told the delegates, "but if I ever dp decide to run, it will be with you." The 40-year-old Dellums said that personal reasons and the contradiction that would develop f r o m running both an independent presidential campaign and being a Democratic cong r e s s m a n f r o m California's 8th Congressional District forced him to decline the nomination. "I cannot share the extraordinary ambivalence and pain that I feel at this moment," Dellums .said. "Part of me wants to blow Gerald Ford and any'pther campaign away because I know what kind of campaign they will run. Reality says I have things'.to do." ·--.!

"We are going to reopen the question of the candidacy and we hope to have a d e c i s i o n w h e n the assembly meets the weekend of May 22," said Sanyika, who added the group would hold its meeting at a yet undetermined site.

Morris K. Udall of Arizona for Ihe Democratic presidential nomination. The endorsement, which came with 70 per cent of a s t a l e delegate assembly here, followed efforts lo promote him as a choice behind whom progressives should unify. The sudden move to put an endorsement on the agenda -- 16 days before the slate's April 6 primary -- lollowed a vote last Dec. 6 in which the group had been heavily divided. Al lime. Sen. Birch Bayh of Indiana (no longer nn active conleslant) polled 5D.SM per cent bul was blocked from a required 60 per cent by supporters of former Sen. Fred R.

He said he planned to limit his campaign 10 the Texas primary on May 1 and Maryland, his home state, on May 18. "I've learned enough to k n o w t h a i p r o c e e d i n g along the primary route is not the best route for me," he said. Bul he added: "I intend to be in the free-for- all." His campaign has been plagued by financial problems and Shriver had indicated even before the Illinois balloting he was exploring the possibility of dropping out of the race. He finished sixth in a field of nine in the Massachusetts primary where he had been expected to do much bciier because of his sironR tics with the Kennedy family. And in the nation's first primary, in New Hampshire, he finished fifth oul of five major candidates. Professional color portraits of your child.
