REPORTER: Harry Reasoner
(DC) Report on status of bomber; seems to be some feeling that President will at least approve product of 5 already requested in next year's budget. Senator Robert Byrd opposes bomber, but says he's not against funding for 5 next yr. Defense Secretary Harold Brown tells Carter his view today, but no word released with regard to his position. Defense Department sources say it's thought President will opt for open-ended situation, because of unstable nature of Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT).
