(New Hampshire) Ronald Reagan really expected to win over President Ford. Ford had little going for him here. February 7 film shows Ford on New Hampshire visit. Jimmy Carter shown last night after victory. He has momentum now. [Fred HARRIS - says will go into Massachusetts as underdog, but more know him and what he stands for now.] [Senator Birch BAYH - says wants to do stronger %-wise in Massachusetts than in New Hampshire.] [Sargent SHRIVER - says should do well in Massachusetts and Illinois. Will be hard to continue if he doesn't.] [Representative Morris UDALL - says very much alive as leader of progressive candidates.] Ea. primary becomes more crucial. Democratic party may have runaway on hands in Carter unless liberals stop dividing their votes.
