(Los Angeles, California) 1st 2 television debates probably did not change very many California minds. 3rd even less decisive with 5 candidates. On ABC's "Issues and Answers," Humphrey and McGovern say they will support nomination at conv. [HUMPHREY - asks McGovern to join him for another hour of debate.] [MCGOVERN - accepts.] [Representative Shirley CHISHOLM - says 2 major candidates will buy television time for debate, marking money as essential to campaign for President] [Los Angeles Mayor Sam YORTY - says Humphrey's debate proposal is useless. He and McGovern debate 25 minute on who turned against Vietnam war first. Yorty says he could have added different point of view. Notes lack of discussion on SST.]
