Blow Out

...a sweeping condemnation
of White House policies.

The same poll gave evidence
of a ground swell of support

for Governor George McRyan
in his bid for nomination.

If an election were held today, Governor
McRyan would win hands down,

drawing a remarkable 62 per cent
of the vote to the president's 23.

The president's campaign manager,
Jack Manners, told reporters. :

The president's had to make
some tough decisions.

But when these policies are carried out
and the economic climate improves,
as we confidently expect it will,

the people will rally to support
the president in the upcoming primaries.


A lot can happen between now and then.
Congress waits anxiously for Governor
McRyan to declare his candidacy.

They may not have long to wait. The
governor is now at the Bellevue Stratford

where he will soon address the kickoff
dinner of the Liberty Day celebration.

Some people think he will use the
occasion to throw his hat into the ring.

Joan, any word
from the Bellevue Stratford yet?

Not yet, Bill, but as soon as there is,
we will be going there live.

Liberty Day is one of the most eagerly
awaited of all Philadelphia celebrations.

But this year it's going to be extra special.
It is 1 00 years since the Liberty Bell
was last rung. To honour this centennial,

...a parade on Saturday
will end up at Penn's Landing
with a spectacular display of fireworks.

In addition, a full-size replica
of the Liberty Bell has been made

from pennies donated by schoolchildren
from every state in the Union.

And they'll be ringing it
after the fireworks at Penn's Landing.

That's right.
Hold it. We've got the Bellevue Stratford.
Let's go live to our political
correspondent, Frank Donahue,

at the Liberty Ball
at the Bellevue Stratford Hotel.

Frank, you look fabulous.
Have you spoken with the governor yet?

Yes, Joan, briefly. He just arrived.
