"People who have j o b s not Ihe muggers; burglars and hold-up men who are causing the national crime statistics to rise," Udall said. It was just one of countless speeches Ihe 'Arizona congressman lias made in his quest for the Democratic presidential nomination, but it provides some important clues lo his campaign. It wasn't 'the m o s t - p o p u l a r line a.politician could ;take with a police audience: telling them that conditions' in society lead to'Crime : and the best way lo ' fight. crime -. is to, light ils causes. : But Udall also leaned hard on the need for law and order, a made just as strongly Jo Harlem a few days lefofe.

"The ; mayors 1 ' 1 and the police commissioners have the responsibility lo fight crime," Udall said, -"But I can assist from Washington,"' Udall bad been just as frank in talking about the future ol Jsrael in a suburban New'York synagogue: "N'o one has Oie solution. The best thing we can do is lo hunker down and jusl live it out." Another clue lo Mo Udall thn Milwaukee speech is the way lie brought a complex aiu controversial issue around to his main theme -- nnemploy menl. "J-O-B-S. It's the centerpiece of Ihe Morris -Udall campaign,' said Tom Kiley, Udall's nation al campaign director. ''The issue before the voters is jobs," Udall told a labor con venlion in Green Bay, Wis.

(He came in a close -second to Carter.) Even on the attack, .Udal] employs humor' and the 'salt approach.

Jfubert H. Humphrey, 'D-Minn,, 1 and Hep. Augustus Hawkins^ D-Calir., which proposes - to create five million jobs and bring the unemployment rate down to about 3'per cent in 18 months. Everywhere lie goes, Udal! makes "a pitch for this hilt as the answer lo the jobs problem which he pictures as -the cen ,ral problem of the economy. "People in America want, to work, 1 '' he says at every stop '.'The. sun came up this: mornlnj and America went t o - w o r k to day.- But elglil million of them wanted to go to work and ther wasn't, any work.

The strongest Udall outburst in quite a "while came in New York as he described former Georgia Gnv. Jimmy Carter's position on ' I h c jobs bill.
