    Commentary:"Among the doubters are many working men and women in Iowa who were not watching the President ride down the river - they were going to work as usual this Monday morning. President Carter needs the support of organised labour in this state but he's losing it to Ted Kennedy"

    Commentary:"Today almost everyone round here was wearing Kennedy buttons - including the President of Iowa AFCLIO who's angry about Mr Carter's voluntary 9% wage guidelines"

    Wingert:"They're phoney guidelines because that makes every employer a super-patriot, and all they can say is 'We'd love to give you more money;the President says we can't give you any???

    Delegate:"Why Kennedy? Because I feel he is our only answer right now"

    Delegate: "I think Carter's forgot us - he doesn't seem to relate to labour any more"

    Delegate:"Jimmy floats down the river - the workers are up the creek"

    Reporter:"President Carter may be getting a warm reception from Iowans on the banks of the Mississippi, but he's getting nothing but a cold shoulder from labour leaders meeting here"
