He slid in an interview here that "arrangements should be made," perhaps including a negotiated agreement with the Communist*, to "reduce the danger of assassination and recriminations" against political and military leaden loyal to Thieu. * * * BUT THE DEMOCRATIC presidential nominee disputed President Nixon's assertion that a Communist takeover of South Vietnam would produce widespread killing and terror. He said that the United States had been more responsible than North Vietnam of the Viet Cong for "massive suffering inflicted on the population" of South Vietnam. McGovern also said that unnamed sources had told him that North Vietnam "went aD out to improve the treatment" of American prisoners of war about two years ago. He contended that the prisoners were Wl R t S f R V I TH[ RIGHT TO LIMIT QUANTITIES OPEN DAILY 10 TO 10 SUNDAY 1T07 w SEN. GEORGE McGOVERN Coalition Seen "in better shape than we've been led to believe" by the Nix. on administration. SUNDAY, AUG. 20 ONLY, WHILE QUANTITIES LAST Nixon, McGovern Raise Funds Pitch New fork Times, Los Angeles Times WASHINGTON-With the help of hundreds of wealthy businessmen and investors, two of whom have so far given him nearly $50,000 a piece, President Nixon's campaign treasurers are taking in an average of $100,000 a day. By drawing on ample reserves, the Nixon campaign has been spending more than $200,000 a day. The President's largest known contributors--other p o s s i b l y larger gifts may have been made earlier without public disclosure--were identified here this week in a partial Hst of Nixon donors required to be filed with the General Accounting Office under the new Federal Election Campaign Act, which took effect in April. THE REPORTS of Nixon's four principal national fund-raising groups--the Finance Com. mittee to Re-Elect the President and three other committee to pay radio, television and printed advertising costs--disclosed that three members of the Pew family, Philadelphia heirs to the Sun Oil Co. fortune, contributed a total of $36,000 in July. But the listed contributions of $12,000 each from Walter Crocker Pew, a Sun Oil director, and two of his aunts, Mrs. Alberta C. Pew and Miss Mary Ethel Pew, and a reported $24,000 gift from Mr. and Mrs. W. Clement Stone of Chicago, a wealthy insurance family, were probably only a fraction of the Pew and Stone support for Nixon this year. Stone, the chairman of the Combined Insurance Company of America, has said that he gave Nixon more than $500,000 in 1968, and the Pew Family contributed $200,000. Contributions made before the April 7 effective date of the new act did not have to be disclosed, and by actively soliciting early anonymous gifts the Nixon finance committees are believed to have banked more than $10 million without the disclosure now required by law. Meanwhile, Sen. George McGovern, Nixon's Democratic opponent, is quietly beginning one of the most massive and perhaps innovative fundraising efforts in recent political history. Letters with four dated blank checks enclosed, 30 to 40 million request-for-funds i n s e r t s in America's newspapers, a "People's Dinner Party," TV spots by contributors telling why they gave, FMBM (For McGovern Before Miami) pins--these are some of the things that are being done. The innovations are the result of the need for tapping new sources of money in order to finance the crucial 12 weeks remaining in McGovern's drive for the White House. The candidate's managers realize there lave been diminished returns from some traditional Democratic dollar sources, and they believe that pattern could continue. The fund raising, of course, includes approaches to large contributors (loans to the campaign are being encouraged). But at the heart of the money-raising effort is McGovern's Million Member Club, designed o raise an average of $23 each from a million Americans. Putting the Million Member Club into practice involves a complex mix of mail-order fund raising, special TV spots, the inserts in the Sunday sections of some newspapers and selected ihone canvasing. The hope is that by successfully blending these, record amounts of small Contributions can be raised. 40VIP MAN'S NORELCO TRIPLE HEAD SHAVER Nine ihoven In one with adjustable head* for closeness and comfort.

JEWELRY DEPL HECK'S RE6. 85* 56 SIMILAR TO IILLUSTtATION GALA Mink-Over-Denim Set Readies For GOP Convention in Miami By Charlotte Curtis © New York Times Service MIAMI BEACH--The Republicans, whose national convention promises galas and social one- upmanship rather than political floor fights, are beginning to assemble. Private jets litter the airports. Yachts are moving into the marinas. Elegant clubs and villas are jammed with the rich and famous. A four-day party is about to begin. "It's all such fun now," said Curtis De Witz, manager of the exclusive Palm Bay Club, the jet set's Miami outpost. "It's nothing like the Democrats." When the Democrats met here six weeks ago to select their presidential candidate, t h e y spent their time in caucus meetings, floor fights and blue jeans. They didn't play tennis or go yachting, and although Mrs. George McGovern did go to a fashion show, the scene was hardly up to Miami Beach's mink-over-bathing suit standards. From a social point of view, and that seems to be the prevailing view, the advent of the Republicans is better. They've made it safe to wear dinner jackets and diamonds, rent limousines and throw a little money around. Elizabeth Arden's Beauty Salon reports bookings are up from the Democrats. Already some taxi drivers have replaced the bermuda snorts .and work shirts they wore for the Democrats with black trousers and white shirts. The social prospects were so good that Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney, the sportsman-industrialist, and Mrs. Whitney decided to abandon Deerlads, their vast cool upper New York state hunt- ing enclave and brave the 99-degree heat and humidity after all. "I'm sure the convention will be fascinating," said Mrs. Whitney, who always knows about such things. "Everybody's going." Mrs. Carling Dinkier, the real estate heiress, obviously agreed. She had been skiing in Chile, and when it looked as if her luggage couldn't be moved fast enough she abandoned it on a mountain top rather than have it delay the plane that would get her back in time to supervise the decoration of her yacht. Socially, the facts are equally consequential James Stewart, Charleton Heston, Art Linkletter and Sammy Davis Jr., all part of the entertainment, are available for parties. Only the select have been invited to a Miami physician's tea for Sen. Robert A. Taft Jr. of Ohio. The color scheme of Sunday's $500-a-plate gala is red, white and blue. And the convention's Monday evening session will definitely begin with the singing of "The Star- Spangled Banner."
