(Studio) Democratic candidates campaign in IN and Ohio prior to president primaries there. In Ohio, Senator George McGovern hopes to defeat Senator Hubert Humphrey; in IN, Humphrey hopes to beat Alabama Governor George Wallace.
REPORTER: Garrick Utley

(IN) Wallace faithfuls attend rally. Wallace tones down delivery of segregationist speech, but not its content, to be more acceptable to a broader range of people. [WALLACE - claims other candidates are stealing his issues.] Humphrey fears Wallace's invisible vote, but is in good shape in IN. Humphrey is supported by labor, and entire state Democratic party (since McGovern isn't running in IN). Ohio campaign draws Humphrey away from IN. [HUMPHREY - hopes to win in IN.] [HUMPHREY - ignores Wallace so as not to make a martyr of him, attacking Nixon instead.]
REPORTER: Catherine Mackin

(Studio) Humphrey runs hard in `72, aware he lost his best chance in `68 for mat breaking with Lyndon Johnson over Vietnam.
REPORTER: Garrick Utley

(Cleveland, Ohio) [HUMPHREY - gets with people to campaign.] His boundless energy, J and spirit which seems contagious, noted. A typical campaign day given: rally of P steel workers, meeting with blacks, talk with youth (who mostly support McGovern). [HUMPHREY - appeals to American family about tax reform.]
