AS he did in 1976, Carter will officially begin the fall presidential campaign in his native South with a Labor Day rally in Tuscumbia, an industrialized area of northwestern Alabama.

After the Tuscumbia event, the President will return to Washington to host a picnic at the White House.

Four years ago, Carter formally opened his campaign in Warm Springs, Ga.

A White House spokesman said the Tuscumbia rally would likely attract blue-collar workers as well as farmers from Alabama, Tennessee, and Mississippi.

Reagan is counting on cutting into Carter's native strength in the South, particularly in those three states. The GOP nominee, meanwhile, also plans to open his campaign formally on Labor Day -- on Ellis Island in New York Harbor, gateway to the United States for millions of immigrants.m
