Schweiker must prove Reagan base in S. will hold in order to keep E. delegates; to keep South delegates he must demonstrate he can deliver Pennsylvania votes and others in North [SCHWEIKER - says South Carolina was first step and by reaction there, he feels Mississippi will hold. Says in a week South will be shown to stand firm.] Schweiker says he will abandon pro-labor positions on such things as right to work if Republican platform calls for it, and he is Vice Presidential candidate.
