(Cicero, Illinois) Dole participates in Columbus Day parade in Newark, New Jersey, then goes to Chicago, Illinois, to talk about President's remark on eastern Europe, which upset Polish-Americans particularly. [DOLE - says people understand that Ford meant people in Poland not dominated because hearts and minds yearn for freedom.] Chicago suburb of Cicero, Illinois, predominantly Republican but also ethnic with some roots in eastern Europe as well as west Europe. Crowds here friendly to Dole but still troubled. Comments of people noted.
REPORTER: Barry Serafin

(Buffalo, New York) Mondale rides in Newark, New Jersey, Columbus Day parade also; is accompanied by Representative Peter Rodino and Mayor Kenneth Gibson. Then goes to Buffalo, New York, and speaks to Democrat reception before Pulaski Day parade re: Ford's eastern Europe remarks. [MONDALE - says Poland controlled by USSR ; notes Soviet troops in eastern Europe. Repeats joke with regard to Warsaw cab driver.] Controversy couldn't have come at better time for Democrats; Mondale shows he'll make most of it. Indications here are President's remark has already turned things around. Mondale meets Betty Ford at parade in Buffalo.
