REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(DC) Speakers have told Republican govs. that only way for Republican to win is to change; Senator Robert Dole is among these. [DOLE - says party must find common ground, not separate and divisive.] 2 members end meeting with disagreement with regard to resolution which says govs. endorse 1976 Republican platform without new definition of party principles. [New Hampshire Governor Meldrim THOMSON - says there must be some common ground to present to voters of what party will do if it holds office.] [Illinois Governor-elect James THOMPSON - says platform was part of presentation to voters and Republican didn't get mandate in November] Illinois Governor Thompson is lone opposing vote on resolution.
