(Studio) Ronald Reagan to test his strategy of staying at home and using television media with Wisconsin primary. President Ford campaigns in WI.
REPORTER: Harry Reasoner

(Milwaukee, WI) [FORD - says Reagan's speech contained misleading statements and alluded to remarks of Secretary of State Henry Kissinger which were fabrication. Will talk of current United States policies rather than attack policies. Doesn't feel debate with Reagan would be helpful with regard to national defense] Ford attends luncheon with leaders of ethnic groups. [FORD - says US policy doesn't accept Soviet dominion of E. Europe.]
REPORTER: Tom Jarriel

(Los Angeles, California) [REAGAN - says will stand by his speech. Would be happy to debate Ford on these issues; Ford doesn't want to debate. Citizen shouldn't be forbidden to criticize government's policies.] Reagan doesn't expect to win in Wisconsin but thinks he has fighting chance in Texas.
