SB-June 27, 1976 * Sunday Gazette-Mail Charleston, West Virginia Reagan Continues Fight for Delegates Delegate Totals campaign manager. * » » FORD SUPPORTERS in Montana claim the state party could be torn apart unless delegates are apportioned to both Ford and Reagan. Supporters of the former California governor made the same comments in Minnesota when Ford's campaigners got the convention to adopt a rule that guaranteed Ford almost all of the delegates there. Democratic front-runner Jimmy Carter, already holding enough delegates to gain the nomination, according to the AP survey, gained more on Saturday in North Dakota. North Dakota's Democratic state convention confirmed its choice of delegates and 11 of the 13 were pledged to Carter. The remaining two said they would remain uncommitted. That left Carier with 1,537 delegates, according to the AP tally. 32 more than needed to win the nomination. Another four Democratic convention delegates were to be selected in Colorado on Saturday night. WASHINGTON (AP) - Here are delegate votes by candidate based on binding requirements or stated preferences of delegates selected so far for the national party nominating conventions: Republican: ford 1,001 Reagan 931 The Aisofiatvd Preii Ronald Reagan campaigned on Saturday gate survey. Reagan had 931. There were 143 still to be selected; it takes 1.130 to win in Montana and Idaho for more Republican convention delegates, while President Ford moved over the 1,000-delegate mark with support from Minnesota Republicans. Uncommitted KM Fort '-ttve GOP delegates were being 0( , la4 chosen in Idaho, Montana and New Mexi- Rico on Saturday for a seven-nation con' co. ference on global economic problems the GOP nomination. Reagan addressed the Montana convention at Helena on Saturday and then flew to Moscow, Idaho. Ford flew from Washington to Puerto .2 Total chosen to date 2.116 Yet to be chosen 143 Needed to nominate: 1.130 Democratic: Carter 1,537 Udall 311 Brown 306 Jackson 193 Humphrey 72 Church 61 Other 42 Uncommitted 477 Total chosen to date 2.999 Yet to be chosen 22 Needed to nominate: 1,505 In New Mexico, where bitter disputes have developed between Ford and Reagan factions over how they would divide the delegation, 20 delegates are at stake. Idaho Republicans chose four delegates Saturday. And 21 delegates were being chosen in New Mexico, with Reagan expected to get most or all of them. * * * FORD WON ALL but one of the 18 at-!arge delegates chosen early Saturday at Minnesota's state GOP convention, bringing him to a total of 1,001 delegates, according to The Associated Press dele- Challenger Criticizes Late Rule Changes HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Ronald Reagan on Saturday angrily criticized late rules changes that cost him five delegates at the Minnesota state convention and rejected a party unity plea by President Ford's backers that could cost him seven more in Montana. 'The former California governor said that if delegates had been divided in every primary in the same proportion as the popular vote, "I'm the winner already." The Minnesota vote boosted Ford's total to 1,001, according to The Associated Press tally, just short of the 1,130 needed for nomination. + * * REAGAN HAS 931, including two previously uncommitted Wyoming delegates he picked up after a visit there Friday. He had good prospects of winning most or all of the 45 delegates to be elected this weekend in Montana, Idaho and New Mexico. Reagan flew to Idaho to address the state GOP convention there after his morning address at the Montana convention and was to return home to Los Angeles later in the day. Reagan pressed for all of Montana's 20 delegates, rejecting the "fairness and unity" plea of the Ford campaign to divide the Montana delegation 13-7, the same ratio as the popular vote in Montana's non- binding primary on June 1. On Friday, Reagan backers in Minnesota lost a rules change fight that denied Reagan a chance for six of 18 atlarge dele- gates. In later voting. Ford won the at- large delegation 17-1. Added to earlier congressional district elections, that gave Reagan only six of Minnesota's 42 delegates at the Republican National Convention. * * * "I HAVE FOUND to my surprise, in virtually every convention that I have visited so far, that there have been desperate attempts to change the rules, and usually to my disadvantage," Reagan said in a speech before the Montana Republican party convention. "That certainly hasn't increased my. spirit of unity," he said, rejecting the party unity plea of Ford state campaign leaders. 2 SLA Members Named in Assault SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP)-Two Sym- bionese Liberation Army members already serving life terms for murder were convicted Saturday in an attempted jailbreak and the assault of two sheriff's deputies. However, the six-man, six-woman jury acquitted Russell Little and Joseph Remiro of a robbery charge in connection with guard keys stolen during the March 1, 1975, escape bid from the Alameda County Jail in Oakland. The robbery charge carried the heaviest possible sentence. 900 Virginia St. East Phone 345-1130 Shop Monday 'til 9 BOLL FURNITURE twin size each piece reg.

First Lady Betty Ford stood in fur him at the Minnesota convention and Interior Secretary Thomas Kleppe was to represent him in Montana. Reagan held a series of private meetings Friday night at the Montana convention as, he campaigned to capture all 20 of the state's delegates. "That's the name of the game," Reagan said on his arrival at the Helena airport when asked if he wants all 20 delegates. Told that Montana GOP Chairman Florence Haegen wanted the state's delegation split at 13 for Reagan and 7 for Ford. Reagan replied: "I don't think there is any need for any divisiveness." The split proposed by Mrs. Haegen and Ford backers is in line with the results of Montana's June 1 nonbinding presidential preference primary, which went 65 per cent for Reagan and" 35 per cent for Ford. Had Reagan forces known at primary time that Mrs. Haegen planned to recommend an apportioned vote, they would have beefed up their campaign in Montana, said John Sears, Reagan's national HAVE THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE TODAY. . .
