(Studio) Federal Election Commission report shows that Senator Birch Bayh, Representative Morris Udall, Fred Harris and Sargent Shriver in debt as of last month Ronald Reagan's campaign financially behind; Ford campaign has surplus. FEC gives $141,000 in matching federal funds to Governor Milton Shapp and $120,000 to Sargent Shriver. Report on Shriver's campaign.
REPORTER: Harry Reasoner

(New Hampshire) [SHRIVER - can uphold laws of land as President, incling. law giving woman legal right to an abortion.] His campaign to become 2nd Catholic President is in jeopardy because of abortion issue. Catholics make up 1/2 of registered Democrats here. [SHRIVER - hands out his economy report] His compassion for poor, elderly, jobless and disadvantaged is genuine. [SHRIVER - says must get votes of non- poor to win. It's hollow type of victory.] Senator Edward Kennedy's (Shriver's brother- in-law) coolness toward campaign hurt Shriver's chances. If Shriver makes respectable showing in New Hampshire, he could be favorite in Massachusetts primary.
