President Gerald Ford seemed to slightly Edge out former gov. Jimmy Carter following thursday nights televised debate according to most Arlington residents interviewed Friday in an informal daily news poll. Most persons agreed however Carter made his strongest remarks in his summation. A a my opinion is that one is no better than the other a said Dewey a a Sonny Williams Captain in the Arlington fire department. A a Thev seem to me be to be the same on All the issues a he said. A a debates Are a set up Deal anyway and they done to Tell the debates struck another differently. A i was amused by the debates a said Gary Mcdonald Public information assistant for the City. Although he saw an hour of the debate included was the 30 minute audio blackout. A a so i mainly saw Carters the closing statements a he said a a the impression i got was that they were Reading Cue cards. It was a lot like when we were in Junior High and had to do Book reports without looking at our notes. A neither candidate looked poised to me a he added a especially Ford. I was glad to see Carter speak out on taxes. It seems the peons Are always paying the Way for the wealthy. They should have to pay their fair share without any special even though the debates had no Impact on Mcdonald a previous positions he plans to watch the remaining two debates. A from the few minutes that i saw of the debates it appeared to me that Ford looked a lot More confident a said Jeanette Deever a graduate student at Southern methodist University. A pc artery a smile just seemed not to be quite As big a she said. A Carter changes his mind too much on important issues it makes me wonder what his real opinions Are. And it makes me wonder what he would do in the office of the mrs. Laura Hart a housewife termed the debate a tie Between the candidates. A maybe on the inflation Issue Carter was a Little stronger a she said. A but it did no to make me change my she thought both candidates were Well prepared and plans to watch the next debates. A i feel it was very close but Ford came out with a slight Edge a said Bill Mcfaddin assistant fire chief. A in the beginning it seemed Carter was nervous and ill at ease. Ford handled himself better. A Carter was evasive a he added. A the tried to skirt around the he Felt the strongest Point made by Ford was his defense of Nixon a Pardon. A when Carter tried to pin Ford Down with the Pardon of Nixon is probably where Ford came out ahead a he said. A the did quite Well on the defense of his actions. Carter almost was agreeing with Jane Moore an employee at Minyan food store enjoyed the debates. A i thought they were pretty Good a she said. A i watched them until the sound went off. A i Wasny to too sure about Carter before the debates a she said. A but i still think he a ignorant. Ford knew More about the issues and that ruled Carter out even John Mcnutt a retired resident said both candidates did Well in their presentations. A Ford made a Good talk and i think Carter made a Good Summa Tion a he said. A a in a have to give Carter a Good Mark. A Carter made a Good talk but i have some slight doubts about him a a Mcnutt added. A the just Hasni to got enough experience. But we have two More debates to make our minds another resident believed Ford took the debates by a Small margin. A one thing is that in his closing statement Carter was More coherent a said the resident who wished to remain unnamed. A but he was too idealistic. He said the same things anyone could have said. A i Felt Ford dealt with the questions More directly a the housewife said. A in the beginning of the debates it looked As though Carter panicked when he was asked a the most enjoyable portion of the debate was during the 30-minute technical failure she said. A i liked watching Harry Reasoner trying to think of things to say a she said. A it reminded me of an episode of a the Mary Tyler Moore Ted Knight the stations Anchorman was left with a few minutes of extra air time and he panicked trying to think of things to cancer conference begins Here monday in ism budget action set for tues a the Arlington City Council will take official action tuesday evening on the City a budget for the fiscal year which begins oct.
