The cross-country exchange of verbal brickbats and bouquets began here when Goodell accused Agnew of using "his usual ex treme rhetoric" in reacting to the report of the President's .Commission on Campus Unrest. Ag new called the report "imprecise. contradictory and equivocal." Goodell said: "The report, un like the vice president, speaks in balanced and moderate Ian guage."

Agnew had called the report "imprecise, contradictory and equivocal." President Agnew yesterday and Chairman Rogers C. B. Morton, Agnew in exercising constructive leadership on this issue." A few hours later, in a TV In terview in Minot, N.D., Agnew blasted Goodell: "He has left his party. He has not supported the administration on any key meas ures." Then, almost before the thunder from North Dakota had died down, Morton arrived in Koch ester, N.Y., to open a Goodell campaign headquarters. Address ing a news conference at Mon roe County GOP headquarters Morton said he was endorsing Goodell, Gov. Rockefeller and the whole Republican team and I'm happy to do it." Whatever Rocky Wants Only nine days ago, Morton declined to say if he would back Goodell. At the time, he limited his "clear and unequivocal sup port to Rockefeller but said the national committee would "do whatever he (Rocky) asks us to do." Asked last night about Agnew's comments, Morton said the vice president was "speaking his own mind: he's electioneering across the country as he sees fit." With Goodell at his side, Morton said both the senator and Rockefeller had requested that President Nixon "remain neutral" in the New York campaign. White House spokesmen said last week that Nixon was not taking sides in the New York senatorial race because Goodell wanted it that way. - . Response by uoodeil But GOP sources reported that Morton's endorsement of Goodell was requested by both Rockefeller and the White House. " "The people of New York State will not allow Spiro Agnew to pull the lever for them in November," Goodell said of Agnew's attack. The vice president, meanwhile, said his anti-Goodell remarks did not necessarily mean he was supporting James L. Buckley, Conservative candidate for Goodell's Senate seat. There were reports that Agnew has been invited to several fun d-raising functions here for Buckley. Neck on the Line Buckley surprised candidate- watchers yesterday by praising Goodell as a true liberal. "I think he's made a 180-degree switch," Buckley said, "but I think he's done it on the basis of conviction, and he has put his neck on the line for it. ; On the other hand, Buckley said his Democratic opponent, Richard Ottinger, was "an ong- nal hawk on Vietnam whose reversal on the war occurred coincidentally with the inau guration of Richard Nixon , as President." At a news conference after his With Agnew Answering questions from students at St, Martin's College here, Finch said the report "gets very precise as to what innovations should be made within the educational institutions" and "gets very precise as to how enforcement officials should conduct themselves in campus disturbances."
