WASHINGTON (AP) - President Nixon has spent more time away from the White House than in it during the first three years of his presidency. He chalked up more than 300,000 miles of travel, to all 50 states, the Virgin Islands, Guam, Midway and 19 countries. Nixon will have to almost double that to surpass Lyndon B. Johnson's total presidential mileage, but available records show Nixon is already a more- traveled president than either John F. Kennedy or Harry S. Truman. When Truman made his farewell address, he boasted he had traveled 135,000 miles by air, 77,000 by rail and 17,000 by ship. There are no records on President Eisenhower's mileage, but train and sea soirees virtually disappeared during his years in office. John F. Kennedy traveled about 215,000 miles during his shortened term, very few by boat or rail. Johnson logged 523,000 miles between Novem ber 1962 and January 1969, according to records at the LBJ Library in Austin, Tex. Virtually all the mileage was by air. Nixon has taken a few rides on Navy ships and tried out the new Penn Central Metroliner train on a 270-mile round trip from Washington to Philadelphia. But virtually all of his 301,000 miles through Dec. 31, 1971, have been accumulated by .air. Records show Nixon was away from Washington for all or part of 551 days and in the nation's capital for all or part of 514 days during his first three years. He has averaged about 25 weekends per year at the presidential retreat in the Catoctin Mountains at Camp David, Md., far more than any recent president. Though not always at the retreat, Nixon was away from Washington for all but six weekends In 1971. Nixon has averaged two foreign trips a year since 1969 and his schedule for 1972 indicates he will at least top that. He has already announced trips to Communist China and the Soviet Union. Nixon is the first president to set up secondary residences on both coasts. He has spent 35 weekends in Florida and California. Nixon visited Key Biscayne eight times in 1969 and 10 each in 1970 and 1971. He made two trips to San Clemente in 1969, three in 1970 and six in 1971. All in all, more than 220,000 of his 300,000 presidential miles have been logged in the United States. Br. K. I* Johnson Dr. J. J.
