The 26-year-old Carter and his wife Caron Are expecting their first child next Spring. Poll Ford debate Winner the Harris poll by Louis Harris a the Chicago Tribune although president Ford won the first debate by a Clear 40-31 per cent Jimmy Carter still holds a comfortable 50-41 per cent Lead nationwide in the contest for the presidency. But in a four Way race which would take account of the potential Impact of the Independent candidacies of Eugene Mccarthy and Lester Maddox Carters Lead Over the president decreases to 46-39 per cent a seven Point margin. One of the most important consequences of the debate was that it tended to firm up both the Ford and Carter support. The number of Carter voters who now feel a very strongly about their Man has jumped la Points from 35 to 46 per cent. The number of Ford voters who feel a very strongly for him has gone up from 31 to 40 per cent. In this special Harris Abc news poll 1,516 voters previously surveyed in per son during july and August were telephoned in the 36 hours following the debate. This technique allowed vote shifts to be measured and provided a Way of finding out Why they took place. In All 72 per cent of the electorate heard the debate with 96 per cent of that total watching it on television and the other two per cent listening on the radio. While Only 69 per cent of the voters with an eight Grade education witnessed the debate a higher 79 per cent of the College educated did. Viewing was highest in the Midwest and lowest in the South. A 69-26 per cent majority of the voters Felt that the debate was worthwhile and 63 per cent say they Are a a certain to watch the second debate on foreign and defense policy oct. 6. Among people who saw the debate Carters Lead Over president Ford is a narrower 48-42 per cent while among voters who did not see it the democrats Lead is a much wider 52-37 per cent. However to conclude that the debate produced this difference in Carter support might Well be misleading since the debate watchers were drawn disproportionately from the most articulate educated and higher income voters. Following this first debate Carter holds a Clear and unmistakable Lead. Nevertheless his enormous Early leads of 39 and 25 per cent reported by previous surveys have obviously evaporated for Good and the Campaign has become something of a horse race. The seven Point Lead he holds in the four Way pairing could vanish in the next five weeks and his nine Point Edge in a two Way contest is not insurmountable. When the detailed pattern of the gains by Bob Campbell staff writer a 4-year-Oid Buffalo donated by Raymond Burns of Wingate is among the beef animals to be auctioned monday in the cattlemen a round up for crippled children to Benefit the West Texas rehabilitation Center. The Buffalo which no one at the rehab Center pens off Potosi Road has been Brave enough to rope joins Rangus Santa Gertrudis charolais and a variety of other cattle for the i . Monday auction at ranchers and Farmers livestock auction in Abilene. Shelley Smith executive director of the Center said the round up going into this weekend was running behind the 1975 fund raising Effort which had 300 animals in the first Sale and raised $95,000 Overall. A we Hope to have a Good Sale and get started on the Way Back from our $100,000 deficit a Smith said.

Nov. 6 farm equipment auction at Lawn. And losses made by Ford and Carter is Analysed it is Carter s Overall position that seems to have strengthened in these past few weeks. President Ford has gained substantial ground in the Midwest where he now leads by 49-42 per cent and in Border states where he has narrowed a previous 58-36 per cent Carter Lead to 54-39 per cent. But Carter still holds a big 56-36 per cent Edge in the entire South a Clear 52-38 per cent margin in the East and a 50-40 per cent Lead in the West. Even More important the narrow 43-40 per cent Lead of Carter in the big six states of the North now has widened to 44-39 per cent in a four Way race.
