' By Lou Cannon The Washington Post WASHINGTON-"The Govern- tnent official's right and power to administer his office is and should be subject to the responsible surveillance of an independent press," the speaker declared. "Far from being threatened, the public interest is enhanced by such responsible journalism." The words are familiar to anyone who ever has attended a gathering of editors, but the [ever submitting to the elective members of the National News-!P rocess as we in public office I ,.. w «. iMlfAVAAfclA i* V T T O Paper Association (NNA) were accustomed to hearing other words from the man who spoke Uiem. The speaker was Vice President Spiro T. Agnew, the same man who precisely 26 months to the dav earlier had described the nation's "liberal news media" as "those really illiberal, self-appointed guardians of our destiny who would _£unjhecountry without must do." There are real evidences these days of "A New Agnew," or perhaps of "Another Agnew." While the attention of the press has been focused on the trials and tribulations second term.

But Mr. Nixon himself, speaking to his cabinet and his staff before the Eagleton disclosures, made it clear that he wants a positive campaign, not one that divides into high and low roads. "The campaign will deal with policies, not personalities," says Campaign Chief Clark MacGregor, adding that Agnew's role will be a positive one that stresses such issues as econom- c progress and revenue sharing. | This is welcome news to Republican organizers, most of whom value Agnew as a campaigner. "He is a good soldier who will speak to 16 people in the rain in. the middle of the night if you need him," one western GOP field organizer said. "He also raises money." j A few Republican profession- lals think that a tamer, plainer Agnew won't be as exciting a speaker as the old Agnew. This is unlikely. "Agnew can back off several degrees and speak pointedly about policies instead of personalities and he'll still be a hit," says the organizer who likes the "good soldier" side of the Vice SPIRO AGNEW New Side Emerging President. "He communicates emotionally. And he'll still communicate." THIS ORGANIZER'S INSIGHT into the value of A g n e w on the ticket is matched by a Washington-based Republican official who believes that Mr. Nixon would have replaced the Vice President only if Agnew had volunteered to be replaced. So we are left with an Agnew who apparently intends soberly and skillfully to discuss, foregoing "harangue and cliche in favor of discussion based on reason and public interest." It is a pose, Agnew's critics will *ay, and we will be left with the same Agnew after the election. This view ignores the persistent reality of Mr. Nixon's own presidency, the same 'reality that _f aces any representative of a minority party who wants to govern and to be remembered as a good president.
