(Studio) Republican Vice President nominee Senator Robert Dole tells San Francisco's Commonwealth Club Democratic platform will expand spending programs and government bureaus, and implies it could lead to backdoor socialism, eventually bringing down free enterprise system. Watergate special prosecutor Charles Ruff says he hasn't cleared Dole of charges of accepting illegal campaign contributions from Gulf Oil. Dole has said he assumed matter closed after grand jury testimony and public denials; Ruff says he'll issue status report on case if asked, but Dole hasn't asked.
