REPORTER: John Chancellor

(New Hampshire) 5 Democrats actively campaign in New Hampshire: Senator Birch Bayh; Jimmy Carter, Fred Harris, Sargent Shriver and Representative Morris Udall. All must carve out clear-cut identity. Carter calls self front-runner; he's conservative anti-DC candidate. Bayh presents self as man elected by labor. He promises to do something about jobs. Shriver shown campaigning. It's advantage and disadvantage to be member of Kennedy family. Harris presents self as candidate against special privilege. Personality not clearly delineated. Udall only candidate to say New Hampshire has too much political power. He, Harris and Bayh talk alike. Udall feels his campaign will be hurt if he doesn't finish 3rd or higher. Most candidates feel that way.
