Humphrey who don't want nomination locked up. 68 delegates at stake here. Representative Morris Udall needs victory; he's been active in Wisconsin for year [UDALL - predicts beerdrinking vote (while drinking beer).] Udall has predicted win here. Will fight on as long as funds last. Says Carter unspecific with regard to issues. Senator Henry Jackson made only limited effort in WI; has tried harder in New York.
