REPORTER: Harry Reasoner

(Plains, Georgia) Carter holds press conference at local HS. [CARTER - says as President, he wouldn't have pardoned Nixon until after trial. Thinks Ford was mistaken in granting pardon at that point. Won't try to dominate Senator Mondale with regard to pardon issue. Americans know of pardon's circumstances and they don't need issue to be raised for political advantage.] Carter, aides and Mondale aide agree Mondale's campaign to be coordinated through Atlanta.
