(Studio) In rules committee , 2 key issues go to Ford side, though may be brought to floor later.
REPORTER: Bob Schieffer

(Kansas City) Reagan forces want rule change to force Ford to announce Vice President choice before balloting, but Ford supporters seem to see this as bid to get Ford to do same thing Reagan did and they wouldn't let rule through. [Ford Iowa delegate Wiley MAYNE - says he opposes rule as ploy to make all candidates make same mistake as 1 other did.] [Reagan Iowa delegate Dennis OLSEN - says wants to know now if other candidate will make mistake so he can do something about it.] Ford supporters win in vote count on issue. Ford campaign manager says it's victory. [Rogers MORTON - says Reagan strategy to weaken Ford has failed.] Ford camp also won rules committee vote that delegates bound by state law have to comply. Reagan forces say they'll bring both issues to convention floor.
