Nunn (Ky.) and one Governor from a major industrial state James A. Rhodes (Ohio). Many prominent Republican erable progress In electing mayors of middle-sized and. large cities, no mayors were included In the Vice Presidential discussions. It was partly as a result of 'widespread discontent among GOP liberals and moderates over the Vice Presidential se lection process that Nixon moved In the succeeding weeks to solicit support and campaign help from Republicans like Rockefeller, Sen, Thruston B. Morton (Ky), Sen. Edward W. Brooke (Mass.) and New York City Mayor John V. Lindsay. Governors such' as Nelson A. Rockefeller (N.Y.), George W. Romney (Mich.), John H. Chafee (R.I.), "ohii A.

Richard M Nixon surprised the nation and disappointed many moderates and liberals In his own party when he picked Maryland (iov.SplroT. Agnew as his 1968 Vice Presidential funning male. Most Americans had never heard of "piro T. Agnew. And most Republican moderates concentrated mainly In North-' ern Industrial states be- lieved a more liberal and bet-, ter-known candidate would have been more helpful to the GOP cause in their areas. Apparently attempting to forestall' criticism of his solution to the Vice Presidential problem, Nixon Aug. 8 stressed that Agncw's name had emerged from a ten-hour period of marathon conferences with party leaders from across the nation. There were lour separate meetings, beginning' at 2 a.m. and ending about 12 noon on Aug. 8. In an unusual move, Nixon's Miami Beach headquarters released the names of 51 participants in the closcd-door conferences that led to Agnew's selection. Some of the names are generally unrecognized by the press and the general public. Others are well-known Congressional and party leaders. Perhaps most significant, nearly all of Nixon's consul-, tants on the Vice Presidency are associated with conservative wing of the GOP. Following are some major categories of participants In the four meetings, as reported by Nixon's headquarters: California Lt. Gov. Robert H. Finch, a nominal backer of Gov. Ronald Reagan (Calif.) for the GOP Presidential nomination and an old Nixon ally, played a prominent part In the discussions. Finch reportedly attended three of the four meetings (more than any other person). Finch managed Nixon's 1960 Presidential campaign. Other veteran campaign aides included Herbert G. Klein, the 1968 manager for communications (press secretary) who has worked on Nixon campaigns since 1918; Peter M. Flanigan, the 1960 director of National Volunteers for Nlxon,-Lodgc; and H. R.;, whomanaed Nix' on's 1352 California gubernatorial campaign. Also attending were several New York attorneys whose po-. litlcal association with Nixon-began in the mid-1960s after he moved from California to New York City; John N. Mitchell, the national campaign manager; Leonard Garment, who is a talent scout for additional aides; and John Sears, a deputy field director in the cam-pagn. Many of the participants Here closely associated with the 1961 Goldwater campaign. JUcharJ G. Kleindicnst, field director of Nixon for President Committee, was director of field operations for Goldwater In 1961 He also ran unsuccessfully for Governor of Arizona In that year. Wayne Hood, a veteran GOP Strategist who began his career as Wisconsin state chairman (1950-53), was director of political organization In the Goldwater campaign. Two Texans at the Nixon meetings Sen. John G. Tower and state chairman Peter O'Donnell were active in the Goldwater campaign., chairman Peter O'Donnell were active in the Goldwater campaign. O'Donnell in 1963 was the chief organizer of the KaUonal Draft Goldwater) "orpimtlee. Goldwater himself attended Nixon's discussions, as did two Arizonan allies of the 1964 GOP Presidential candidate.-Rep. John J. Rhodes, chairman of the powerful House Republican Policy Committee; and Sen. Paul J. Fannin, Golf water's successor in the Se etc. Sen. Strom Thurmond (S.C.. and South Carolina statij chairman Harry Dent both former Democrats who; switched parties In 1964 apparently played a prominent, role in Nixon's conferences. Other Southerners included: Unwood Hollon, unsuccessful. 3964 gubernatorial candidate in Virginia, former Rep. Howard H. Callaway (Ga. 1965-67), a staunch conservative and Georgia finance chairman for Goldwater In 1964; William Murfin, Florida state chairman who held his state's convention delegation for Nixon; and Fred LaRue, former Mississippi GOP National Committeeman and a 1964 Goldwater campaign aide. Nixon also Invited nearly every major conservative GOP Congressional leader to participate In the Vice Presidential discussions. Included were Sen. Roman L. Hruska (Neb.), regarded as the leading candidate of Republican conservatives for election as Senate Republican Whip (assistant leader) In 1969; and Senate Minority Leader Everett McKinley, Dirksen (111.), who nbminafrd Goldwater for President at the 1964 Republican National Convention. Sen. George Murphy '(Calif.), conservative chairman of the Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee, and Sen. Karl E. Mundt (S.D,), another Senate conservative, also attended.
