U ' 1976 UNITY Sunday Ga*ette-Mail Charl«toa West Virginia ---- Who *s Going to Be No. 2 Man Key Question for Democrats NEW YORK (AP) -Broadwaygives its regards to Peachtree Street this week when the Democratic National Convention convenes in Madison Square Garden to nominate Jimmy Carter as- the party's presidential candidate. The man from Plains. Ga., population 683, was firmly in command of the party machinery and the loyalty of a clear majority of the more than 3.000 delegates. With Carter certain to be nominated on the first ballot Wednesday night, the principal item left for speculation was whom the former Georgia governor would choose for his running mate. One by one, prospects journeyed to Plains and then to New York City to be interviewed by Carter and to keep alive interest in what otherwise shapes up as the dullest Democratic convention in memory. * * * THERE'S NO LIKELIHOOD of a major floor fight over seating of delegations, or rules changes or the party platform. There's no threat of a walkout by Southerners or a party-rending fight over Vietnam. Those good old Democratic brawls -New York 1924, Philadelphia 1948. Chicago 1968, Miami Beach 1972 - that left the party bitterly split are only memories. This is the year of unity, the convention of sweetness and light, where Gov. George C. Wallace of Alabama and Coretta King will speak from .the same rostrum, as will Mayor Richard J.' Daley of Chicago and Sen. George McGovern., D-S.D. It's also the year the Democrats hope to win back the White House after eight years of Republican control. The convention may lack suspense, but that's a tribute to the remarkable campaign thet brought Carter from relative obscurity through the long primary election season to Madison Square Garden with more than enough delegate votes for a first-ballot victory. There scill was a likelihood that other names would be placed in nomination. Wednesday night. Gov. Edmund G. Brnwn Jr. of California still is technically a candidate. So are Rep. Morris Udall of Arizona and Ellen McCormack of New York. It takes 1,505 votes to win the nomination and the iatest Associated Press tally of committed delegates gave Carter more than 1,600. . . Brown and Udall arrived at the convention with about 300 delegate votes each: Mrs. McCormack. who campaigned on an antiabortion platform, had eight. In another departure from old-style conventions, the Democrats have ruled out balloons and bands and endless marching and cheering demonstrations for each candidate whose name is placed in nomination. They also are determined not to compete with the late, late show on television. THE CONVENTION rules state that "each 'presidential candidate shall be allowed a total of 15 minutes time for the presentation of his or her name in nomination by a nominating speech and not more than two seconding speeches; the time to run without interruption from the recognition of the nominator." Party officials insist the time limitation will be strictly enforced. The schedule also calls for convention sessions to adjourn no later than midnight. The major speech at the opening session Monday night, the keynote address, will be shared by Sen. John Glenn of Ohio, the former astronaut, and Rep. Barbara Jordan of Texas, who gained national recognition two years.ago during the House Judi- By Donald M.

Glenn was one of the vice presidential prospects interviewed by Carter. Others on the list were Senators Adlai Stevenson of Illinois, Edmund Muskie of Maine, Walter Mondale of Minnesota, Henry Jackson of Washington and Frank Church of Idaho. Another name mentioned and being pushed by House Democrats was Rep. Peter W. Rodino of New Jersey; chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. Henry Kissinger Doubts Change Carter, Ford Diplomacy Similar, Kissinger Says WASHINGTON (AP) -Jimmy Carter's foreign policy statements indicate there would be little change in U.S. diplomacy if he is elected president. Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger said Saturday. "The main outlines" put forth by the likely Democratic presidential candidate "have been fairly consistent with the outlines we have put forth," Kissinger said. In his first Washington news conference since April, the secretary appeared irritated a! a question put in terms of his possible support for Carter. It is the other way around, Kissinger said: Carter appears to support most of the Ford administration's policies. And, he added, ''we of course welcome support wherever we find it." Kissinger also disclosed that the United States is working to develop a United Nations resolution with several other countries that would condemn international terrorism and establish some sort of mechanism to deal with the problem. Udall to Allow Name To Go Into Nomination NEW YORK ( A P ) - Rep. Morris K. Udall said Saturday he plans to let his name go into nomination at the Democratic National Covention but may withdraw before the delegates vote for the party's presidential nominee. Shortly after arriving in New York for the convention, the Arizona congressman told a news conference that there is no doubt that Jimmy Carter will be the nominee. Udall said the only question is how to satisfy his delegates and still build party unity behind Carter. "WE HAVE NOT YET reached a consensus." Kissinger said, and if agreement is not reached "we will put it forth ourselves." This statement was put in the context of the current U.N. Security Council debate over Israel's raid last weekend in Uganda to rescue more than 100 persons held hos- -tage by Arab and German terrorists. The secretary defended Israel's right, even though "unprecedented," to invade Uganda because of that nation's "either inability or unwillingness" to free the hostages. "It is also totally unprecedented" for innocent people to be put in the position the hostages found themselves in .Uganda, he said. In any event, "terrorismjnust end." Indiana Church Bus Overturns, 13 Teenagers Hurt FRANKFORT, Ind. (AP)-Thirteen teenagers were treated for minor injuries Saturday after a bus containing 41 members of the Bethel Baptist Church of Gary, Jnd., overturned on Interstate 65. The bus, owned by the church, was en route to a church convention in Anderson Ind. Driver Zeke Little, 39, Gary, told police, "All of a sudden the bus made a funny noise. I saw we had run out of gas, so I began to coast. All of a sudden the left rear wheel came off and the bus started to wobble violently." Other motorists said the bus fishtailed down the two southbound lanes of the interstate for about 300 feet before leaving the roadway and turning over in a ditch.
