(Studio) Mississippi delegates to Republican convention meet in Jackson, Mississippi, to decide whether to back Ford or Reagan, aware Mississippi vote may mean difference in Republican choice of presidential candidate.
REPORTER: Bob Schieffer

(Jackson, Mississippi) Choice unlikely today. Ford and Reagan stances cited. [Uncommitted delegate Charles PICKERING - notes effect of aggressive campaigning.] [Ford campaign strategist Harry DENT - claims there is stalemate.] [Uncommitted delegate Bill PATRICK - says his mind is still open. Leans to Reagan.] Reporter notes Reagan appears to hold slight lead; voting as a bloc challenged; harmony hard to come by.
