(Studio) McGovern's trip to Houston, Texas, came in response to loud dissatisfaction being voiced by some Democrats attending National Govs. Conf. there.
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(Houston, Texas) McGovern reassures uneasy Democrat govs. in wake of stop-McGovern movement triggered by doubts about his candidacy. [MCGOVERN - says he made no compromise offers, but clarified his stands. Says discussion was enormously beneficial.] [Georgia Governor Jimmy CARTER - says McGovern assured states like North Carolina, Tennessee and Maryland he will not accept delegate votes he didn't earn in accordance with state laws.] [Kentucky Governor Wendell FORD - says he doesn't find McGovern any more acceptable.] Southerner as a running mate might help McGovern in South, but most all Democrat govs. now think he couldn't carry their states. Govs. Gilligan of Ohio, Shapp of Pennsylvania, Mandel of MD, Hearnes of Missouri remain uncommitted to McGovern.
