(Studio) Guest commentator says disgrace lies with demonstrators not conv. mgrs.
REPORTER: Frank Reynolds

(DC) Theory is that young now compose main stream American life. Convention system failed them, thus convention system must go. Demonstrators' notion of freedom of speech was to chant obscenities outside hotel. Throwing bottles at cops notion of peaceful assembly. Daley not perfect companion for chamber music, but old pols. brought sense of order to political science. National primaries costly; wouldn't insure superior tickets. Old age of eagle better than youth of sparrow.
