WASHINGTON — Paper-work problems stalled Jesse Jackson's bid for federal matching funds today, threatening to keep the Democratic hopeful off the ballot in the second presidential primary of 1988.

Jackson's aides said he will win approval from the Federal Election Commission for matching funds. "It's not going to be today," said FEC spokeswoman Sharon Snyder of the possibility of fast action on Jackson's request. With no action from the FEC today, a South Dakota official said, Jackson's name will not be on the state's Feb. 23 primary ballot.
