(Studio) President Ford campaigns in Nebraska and Missouri. He hasn't had chance to talk to Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, back from Africa.
REPORTER: Ted Koppel

(Independence, Missouri) Large group of people say that Kissinger enunciating African major rule policy while Ford campaigned in South was straw that broke the back of a fragile campaign. Felt it would be a sign of weakness to fire Kissinger now. Ford speaks at dedication of statue of Harry S. Truman. [FORD - quotes Truman with regard to not mixing policy with election year pols. Truman knew where buck stopped and wasn't afraid of the heat in the kitchen.]
