(Studio) Report on Massachusetts primary campaigns.
REPORTER: Bob Schieffer

(Massachusetts) Alabama Governor George Wallace not sure about Massachusetts because of differences between images of him and liberal Massachusetts voters. He draws large enthusiastic crowds; could get 20% vote. Senator Henry Jackson changed his campaign style. [JACKSON - says this is final drive to victory.] He campaigns among ethnic groups. Jimmy Carter can't be categorized easily. [CARTER - says voters resent being put in boxes and being told who to vote for due to their political positions.] Carter faces 1st test from conservatives, Wallace and Jackson. Senator Birch Bayh spearheads liberal attack on Carter. [BAYH - says must nominate Democrat who stands for Democrat principles.] Bayh's money will dry up if he doesn't close gap between himself and Representative Morris Udall. Udall's campaign in trouble if he doesn't lead liberal pack. Sargent Shriver's political organization is poor; getting no help from bro.-in-law, Senator Edward Kennedy. May not continue if he does poorly here. Fred Harris must finish in top 3 to stay credible candidate.
