(Studio) President candidates find it hard to compete for attention with President Nixon's trip to China. Nevertheless, they campaign hard: Senator Muskie in Florida; Senator McGovern in New Hampshire; and Senator Humphrey in WI, and campaigning costs money.
REPORTER: Garrick Utley

(New Hampshire) Senator Wilbur Mills is a last minute candidate in New Hampshire primary. He flies in private plane and buses students to hear him speak at his expense. Luncheon bill also footed by Mills. [MILLS - says he isn't spending a penny on campaign and has no idea about what his supporters are spending.] Representative Paul McCloskey, liberal Republican, runs campaign on shoestring. Volunteers stay in rent-free headquarters Mills uses expensive television ads, has big office in Manchester.
