LKUBSDORF WASHINGTON - (AP) - Robert S. Strauss, the fast-Ulklng Texan who heads the Democratic National Committee, has spent most of ttie past two months trying to get Democrats of different shades under the same umbrella--and talking to one another. "It doesn't do any good to gel under the umbrella unless you communicate once you gel there," he said in an interview at his Watergate office. "If you're going to knee and elbow and kick when you're under the umbrella, then you're better ofl not under it." In a recent two-day stretch, Strauss had dinner with Chi cago Mayor Richard J. Daley, an early morning meeting with Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace, an evening meeting with Sen. Walter E. Mondale of Min nesola plus sessions with Sen. Edward M. Kennedy and KCIV ;ucky Gov. Wendell Ford. "That in itself," Strauss said, 'is the story of what's happening in the Democratic party." Another part of the story is .he resistance of what Strauss calls "a small, hard-core ?roup" ot critics who oppose us chairmanship. Strauss said lie isn't going to worry about them. His next step is to announce his week, a party advisory council, expected to have on it he likes of Daley. Wallace, Mondale, Kennedy and Ford, ilus the George McGoverns, -iubert H. Humphreys, Edmund * Muskies and Shirley Chi- sholms. MAJOR GOAL Wooing elected Democrats, many of whom felt they were eft out of party activities in 972 as the youthful legions of Jen. George McGovern swept o control and, ultimately, elec- oral disaster, has been a ma- or Strauss goal. Other steps the 51-year-old ihairman has taken include: --An effort to improve rela- ions among the national committee, Democratic governors and the party's leaders in Confess. Ho's planning to hire a full-time liaison man to work with them. --Signing on a national committee staff of people from all wings of the party. Strauss named Mary Lou Burg, who supported Eugene J. McCarthy for president ' i n 1968, as his deputy. He picked Bob Keefe. a former aide to Sen. Birch Bayh and a key AFL CIO operative in the fight that led to Strauss' election as chairman, to be political director. --Reorganization of fund-raising activities with Joseph Cole, a Cleveland industrialist and presidential backer of Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey, as full-time national finance chairman,' Peter McColoueh, a Xerox Corp. executive who helped . Strauss raise money for 1972 congressional candidates, Is party treasurer. . · Contribution Returned To Financier NEW YORK (AP) -- Presi. dent Nixon's re-election campaign committee snys it returned $250.000 contributed last year by Robert L. Vesco, a f i n ancier the c h a n g e Securities and Commission Ex- has charged in connection with a $224 million fraud. A spokesman lor the Finance Committee to Re-elect the President said in Washington Tuesday the contributions were returned to Vesco Jan. 31. 1973, two months after the SEC sued Vesco and 41 other individuals and companies. The committee reportedly received a secret $200,000 cash contribution from Vesco last April 10, three days atter the new campaign disclosure law went into effect. Vesco, ol Boonton, N.J., subsequently made public contributions totaling $50,000. Maurice Stans, the former commerce secretary who headed the Nixon finance committee, received the $200,000 contribution in his office, according to testimony by New Jersey attorney Harry L. Sears made public here Tuesday. Sears, who ran the Nixon reelection campaign in New Jersey, testified for two days last week in pretrial depositions in the SEC's fraud suit filed in U.S. District Court here. CHARGES FILED Vesco and eight close associates are charged with draining the $224 million dollars from Investors Overseas Services Ltd., the ailing mutual fund empire Vesco gained control of two years ago. _ Vesco, 37, became chairman of fOS in January, 1971, several months after he arranged a $5 million loan to the ailing mutual fund empire founded by Bernie Cornfeld. IOS, although it once controlled $2.5 billion ivorth of invested capital, was r u n n i n g short of operating capital at the time. Vesco resigned prior to the SEC suit. --Creation of » new, "r**lly meaningful research operation," one that would use computers to provide Democratic candidates with Information on issues and the records of (heir opponents. LADOK COURTSHIP -A courtship ot the leaders of organized labor who stayed neutral or helped President Nixon in the 1972 campaign. A day after Nixon met last week with AFI,-CIO leaders in Miami Beach, Strauss : was there. Predictably, the major opposition to Strauss, a graduate of the Lyndon B. Johnson-John Connally school of Texas Democratic politics, has come from the hard-core McGovern supporters, who fear Strauss will destroy the reforms that were enacted a year ago. "There arc those who think lhat we need monitoring up here and they're monitoring us," Strauss said. "There are a smair hard-core group that are never going to be satisfied by Bob Strauss and that's their business. I wouldn't be satisfied with them. "But. you know, I learned a long time ago that you do what you think is right. And you don't worry about people like that." C 3 O O. On QUALITY 23 Rolls of Short Shag and Medium Length Shag in Stock.
