(Studio) Richard Nixon suggests Humphrey's South campaign leaders may be working with George Wallace to force election into House Nixon sends ex-Pennsylvania Governor, William Scranton to meet with European leaders to discuss NATO, Common Mkt. and Mideast.
REPORTER: Frank Reynolds

(Anaheim, California) Press conference held. [NIXON - says Humphrey fails in that law and order not question of more police, but seeing police hands not tied by unfortunate court decisions. Diplomatic discussions not private and wouldn't want Scranton to make Vietnam remark that could be misinterpreted and hurt US and Paris Peace Talks.] Nixon wouldn't take stand on Abe Fortas; would take point in television debate, but not with 3rd and 4th party candidates. No scars from press confs.
