(Studio) Losers in California and Illinois Democratic Convention delegate fights take cases to Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger temporarily blocks implementation of court rulings while he considers whether to call adjourned Supreme Court into special session to hear appeals. Appellate court gave McGovern back 151 California delegates the credentials committee had taken away; and upheld unseating of Chicago Mayor Richard Daley and his 58 Illinois delegates. Humphrey would be loser if California decision stands, but his campaign manager, Jack Chestnut, says he would abide by Supreme Court decision and not take adverse ruling to conv. floor. Daley block already plans floor fight, however.
