(Studio) Womens' caucus votes on Carter compromise.
REPORTER: Harry Reasoner

(NYC) Rule was proposed to require 50-50 male-female representative at future Democrat convs. Jimmy Carter agrees to rule to promote but not require 50-50 representative [President NOW Karen DECROW - says requiring equality is only thing that works.] [Feminist Betty FRIEDAN - says 50-50 is not politically realistic and cannot win.] [Representative Shirley CHISHOLM - says mustn't do anything to keep from capturing White House in November] Carter's compromise wins.

(Studio) Report on Carter's ex-pol. opponents.
REPORTER: Harry Reasoner

(NYC) Representative Morris Udall and Senator Hubert H. Humphrey present. Convention is mirror of broken dreams for most of ex-pol. foes of Carter like: Pennsylvania Governor Milton Shapp, IN Senator Birch Bayh, Washington Senator Henry Jackson, Alabama Governor George Wallace, Texas Senator Lloyd Bentsen, Fred Harris, Sargent Shriver and Terry Sanford. California Governor Edmund G. Brown Junior expected to be heard from in future. Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley emerges from 1972 exile imposed on him by McGovern supporters. No one took his man, Senator Adlai Stevenson III, very seriously.
