Everyone knows Cyrus Vance, and just about everyone likes him: Soviets, senators, Greeks, Turks, Cypriots, hawks and doves. He obviously was not the unanimous first choice of the entire Carter staff. Hamilton Jordan, the young campaign manager, told that Playboy interviewer that Carter "would have failed" and that he, Jordan, would "quit" if Vance were to become secretary of state and Zbig-niew Brzezinski to take over the National Security Council (NSC). Vance is in, Brzezinski is the front-runner for NSC, and nobody expects Jordan to kick over the traces. Obviously, he was trying to make the point that nonestablish-ment types, nongraduates of what one wag calls the "National School for Secretaries of State," should prosper in the Carter administration. Vance is not a new face. He was deputy secretary of defense under Robert McNamara, subsequently served as Lyndon Johnson's favorite trouble shooter, in Cyprus and in the burning American cities of the 1960s. He is a member of the inner circle of the eastern foreign policy establishment. Carter tried, but not very successfully, to skirt the "Washington issue" by protesting that Vance is a native of West Virginia and a resident of New York. A Killer Kor ' Mr. welcomed by high officials. Vance is dedicated to detente and the advancement of the SALT talks, which is a source of much reassurance to those who watch with apprehension Carter's burgeoning friendship with James Schlesinger, the hard-nosed secretary of defense who was fired by Gerald Ford for insisting on doubling the defense budget. Schlesinger's reinstatement in high office is being urged by such likeminded souls as George Meany and Scoop Jackson. That would cancel the apointment of Vance. If Carter wants to do something for Schlesinger, out of deference to the conservative Democrats, Sen. Frank Church hopes it would be to make him ambassador to China, where he was warmly received last summer. "He sees the Russians in the same light as they do," says Church, second-ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, "and they would be honored to have a former secretary of defense." There is universal agreement about Vance's character and good will. The only question is about his clout with Carter. If foreign policy is once again to be made between president and secretary of state upstairs in the White House, Vance has no problem. But if it is to be fashioned downstairs in the basement, as it was during the Kissinger years, then Vance will be another William Rogers, who had the title of secretary but was in reality nothing but the tenant of the biggest suite in Foggy Bottom.

For some people, it suggests that Carter will be his own secretary of state, and that foreign policy will be made in the White House, where the strong-minded Brzezinski unmistakably would be in charge. Vance is expected to normalize relations between Foggy Bottom and Capitol Hill. Vance is no Henry Kissinger to dazzle and deceive. Nor is he compulsively secretive, although he is discreet. Many of his closest associates never knew his feelings about the Vietnam war, the foreign policy adventure that enraged the Pentagon during his time there. Several of his contemporaries, Clark Clifford and Paul Warnke, changed their minds about U.S. policy and, after leaving government service, had considerable to say about it. Vance, who served as deputy to Harriman in the peace talks, has not. Since he retired to his law practice in New York, Vance has kept his hand in.

TIRE WASHINGTON - Former Vice President Spiro Agnew, who pleaded no contest to income tax evasion in 1973, has sought a presidential pardon from the man who succeeded him, Gerald Ford. White House attorneys, perhaps recalling the uproar over their boss's pardon of Richard Nixon, politely but firmly referred Agnew's lawyer to the Justice Department. Agnew's bid for a pardon came shortly after Oct. 10, when his sentence of three years probation expired. An Agnew attorney called White House counsel Philip Buchen's office. The conversation "was very low key, very professional," a White House official confided. The brief discussion, we have learned, centered on the "receptivity" of the White House to a formal filing for a pardon by ; Agnew. "The reply was that there have been procedures established by Justice," the White House official told us. "The request was no more than any good lawyer ; would do for his client." Agnew resigned in disgrace on .Oct. 10, 1973 when he pleaded no contest to a single count of tax evasion. ' The plea, equivalent to a conviction, helped Agnew avoid a messy public trial. At the time, the Justice Department filed a detailed statement which showed that Agnew began accepting payoffs in 1967 when he was governor of Maryland. The payments continued right up to January 1973, when a federal grand jury began investigating Agnew. Footnote: We can find no evidence that Agnew took his plea for a pardon to the Justice Department. His lawyer, Judah Best, declined comment. A 78-13 HlurkMllll Iilliiliss I'lus 1.71 The Congressional Black Caucus, in a strongly worded private letter to Carter, urged him not to appoint former Ford administration Labor Secretary John Dunlop as his own top man at labor. But big labor cherishes Dunlop for resigning after President Ford welshed on a promise to support a pro-labor bill. Labor leaders, therefore, are strongly backing Dunlop for the job. The caucus asserted that Dunlop "demonstrated in-sensitivity" to minority groups by making "no effort" to upgrade the Labor Department's Office of Federal Contract Compliance. The office is supposed to enforce civil-rights laws with federal contractors. LOCAI PUIICHASK ll l- .K.T. & Tradi'-ln Reg. 32.95 Convenient Credit'. Price includes free tire mounting!
