Mondale said Friday the debate between Jimmy Carter and President Ford showed Carter "felt the pain of unemployment" and Ford was unable "to get the word unemployment out of his mouth" "I don't blame Mr Ford last night for never talking about unemployment I 's been a miserable failure" the Democratic vice presidential candidate told a convention of the Connecticut AFL-CIO "Coy Carter is not only willing to face up to the issue it was clear he also felt the pain of unemployment" Mondale planned to return to Washington for a series of appearances over the weekend Ford did not refer to the unemployment rate during the debate Instead he repeatedly spoke of his administration having "added employment of about four million (workers) in the last 17 months" In the 17 months since the low-point of the recession Labor Department figures show total employment has increased by 39 million to a record 88million But that hasn't been fast enough to absorb the increase of 29 million people in the work force now totaling 955 million As a result 75 million workers still were unemployed last month and the jobless rate fell from its 89 per cent recession peak only to 79 per cent The rates are the highest since the depression years of the 1930s Mondale said: "If for no other reason he (Ford) should lose the next election to find out how unemployment feels" His statement brought applause and cheers from the union leaders The Minnesota senator accused Ford of trying "to lead the American people to believe something he knows is not true that employment is on the rise" Fifteen minutes into the debate Ford lost his buoyancy and the President's handling of the debate went downhill after that Mondale said Recalling a picture of Ford posing last weekend with a cow Mondale said: "That explains where Ford got his information that he used in the debate last night" Borrowing a line from a union man who spoke to him as he came into the hall Mondale said a working person who votes for Ford "is like a chicken voting for Col Sanders" $1 capacitor silences candidates PHILADELPHIA (AP) A tiny electronic part which cost about $1 was blamed Friday for the 27-minute sound interruption in the first nationally televised debate between President Ford and Jimmy Carter American Broadcasting Co which was responsible for distributing the sound and picture to television and radio operations said "the failure was due to a major malfunction in the amplifier system" The part that failed called an electrolytic capacitor cost between $1 and $125 said Phil Levin ABC's chief engineer Joseph Keating of ABC-Radio audio pool producer for the debate "The FRIENDLIEST STORES in TOWN" VI Set or Sets for WOMEN'S ci 100 polyester SMOCKi "TOPS i Sizes 8-18 I SMOCK TOPS Sizes 8 48 said the troublesome item was a tiny capacitor the size and shape of a cigarette filter with a single wire at each end "It's always had a solid performance record" Keating said "I never heard of one going bad before or of the distribution amplifier ever failing" The defective amplifier had been used to distribute sound during Ford's trip to China last year and also at the Montreal Olympics and the national political conventions in 1976 "It was an awful thing to happen" said ABC's Elliot Bernstein the pool TV producer "My engineers tell me the capacitor is a reliable piece of equipment" PANT SUITS! just

Associated Press national voter poll shows the President is inching a bit closer in a tight election contest The scientific telephone survey of 1065 registered voters also disclosed that: Ford is winning the independent vote vital for a Republican in any national fight against the larger Democratic party The number of undecided voters dropped significantly after Thursday night's debate but enough yet remain to win the election for either candidate IN VOTERS WHO T1K)UGHT Carter won the debate were more likely to cite his positions on issues as the reason than were people who thought Ford won Those who called Ford the victor were more likely than the Carter group to cite such reasons as "more knowledgeable on most subjects" and "he just sounded like he would make a better president" The survey respondents were questioned during the week before the debate and at that point either preferred or were leaning toward Carter by a margin of 453 per cent to 411 per cent Contacted again within 90 minutes after the debate ended 344 per cent thought Ford had won 318 per cent gave the nod to Carter 26 per cent called it a draw and 78 per cent said they didn't 'mow who won Asked to state their preference for president after the debate 469 per cent selected or leaned toward Carter 449 per cent picked Ford ALTHOUGH FORD picked up 38 percentage points to Carter's 16 that difference and the 2 per cent margin between the two in over-all preferences is so narrow the result cannot be taken ascertain But with this national sample of 1065 persons the chances are only one in 20 that the percentages will vary by any more than 29 points from the result that would be obtained if the entire registered voter population were surveyed Based on these results however the election in less than six weeks is presently too close to call Fords press secretary Ron Nessen expressing pleasure at the outcome of the AP poll said that the significant point is that three out of four respondents who were undecided before the debate made up their mind to chose Ford after the performance However Nessen slightly overstated the ratio of the increase in Ford strength to the increase in Carter strength which was slightly under 540-2 rather than 3-to1 Additionally some voters moved from one candidate to the other in shifts that in many cases were offsetting McCarthy spot on ballot sought Supporters of independent presidential candidate Eugene McCarthy have made their second bid to US Supreme Court Justice Lewis Powell to have McCarthy's name placed on Texas' November General Election ballot Fort Worth Attorney Don Gladden said the request was filed Friday after a ruling by the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans Thursday that upheld a panel of federal judges in Austin who decided McCarthy's effort to gain a spot on the Nov 2 ballot began too late The Appeals Court also upheld the Austin panel's ruling that struck down portions of the Texas Election Code which had prevented McCarthy and other independent candidates for president vice-president and presidential electors from appearing on the ballot Despite that victory for McCarthy the delay in beginning his drive in Texas will prevent him from gaining a spot on the ballot unless he gets emergency relief from the Supreme Court Powell had turned down an earlier request saying the matter should be by the federal Appeals Court first Gladden said Friday he hopes Powell now will look at the question "on its merits" No action had been taken by Powell Friday with indications that nothing would be done at least until Monday Gladden said he will present Powell with information that McCarthy already is on the ballot in 33 states as evidence of his serious candidacy And Gladden said federal courts in Florida and Delaware have ordered McCarthy's name be put on the ballot despite "almost identical circumstances" to Texas where it was determined that McCarthy did not have time to prove he has enough community support to merit a spot on the ballot 'vicCarthy's request before Powell is fighting another deadline Under Texas law political parties must inform the secretary of state of its candidates 35 days before the election Tuesday is the last day to notify the secretary Touchy issues avoided Soviet newsman says MOSCOW (AP) A Soviet commentator said Friday the contestants in the first presidential campaign debate attacked each other with floods of statistics but avoided some of America's touchiest domestic issues Stanislav Kondrashov Washington correspondent for the government newspaper Irvestia said a discussion of issues was not the main point of Thursday's debate "In an atmosphere of apathy they are trying with the help of direct debates to increase interest in the election" he said 4a FORT WORTH STAVELEGRAM Poll indicates debate aided on Ford position HINGTON (AP) While finding WAS the first Ford Carter debate a virtual draw an Associated Press national voter

Washington Applauding White House Staff members greeted him on the south lawn when his helicopter arrived "He's very upbeat and very happy about the results of the debate he's in a very good mood" reported Michael Raul-Duval who was Ford's coordinator in debate preparations White House chief of staff Richard Cheney and other Ford aides said Friday they believe he was a clear winner of the opening round in which economic issues were discussed Ile also said the President would do better in the second of the three debates Oct 6 in San Francisco "The subject will be national defense and foreign affairs and that's an area where the President is very strong" Cheney said James A Baker III Fords campaign manager said he thought Ford won but felt both Ford and Carter delivered weak summaries at the end He said the 27- minute sound failure might have been responsible The President received a standing ovation Friday when he told the Polish American Congress he will continue to work for a sovereign and independent Poland "The United States must continue to support the aspirations for freedom of the people of Eastern Europe" he added The President said immigrants had come to America most without many material things He said they had built their own churches schools hospitals institutions and neighborhoods "We must ensure that what you have done what you have earned what you have built will be here for your children to enjoy" Ford said "We must ensure your children will have the neighborhood they need to build a decent life of their own "The family needs a neighborhood that is safe that is stable the family needs a neighborhood with local churches local shops and local schools Ford performance smooth Dole says LOS ANGELES (AP) Republican vice presidential candidate Bob Dole declared Friday that President Ford's per formance in the first presidential campaign debate should erase any images of him as a clumsy man Dole told an airport news conference that even some Democrats were surprised at Fords composure in the televised debate which the Kansas senator said showed the President to be the "clear winner" "Ile needed some forum to demonstrate to the American people that he is all together" Dole said "and he did that last night" Dole accused the news media of promoting an image of Ford as a bumbler showing pictures of him hitting his head on the door of a helicopter and slipping a number of times "I think there has been some question in the minds of the American people and apparently that's been erased" PHOTOS USEFUL
