(Studio) President Ford hosts "by invitation only" news conference
REPORTER: Roger Mudd

(DC) Ford says he'll run for President on his record and will beat Ronald Reagan and likely Democratic candidate, Senator Hubert H. Humphrey. Says he's cut inflation in 1/2 and reduced unemployment. He concedes setback in S.E. Asia, but says most allies believe United States will be firm partner. Says people will see correctness of his decisions and public opinion for him will rise. Says record shows he is competent President and some criticism hurts because it's not true.
REPORTER: Robert Pierpoint

(Studio) Press Secretary Ron Nessen fixed microphones so reporters not invited could hear Ford's remarks.
