They can be summed up easily under the heading of inability in human relations." Thto now b ground pretty well covered in the many hard examinations made of «he PraMtnt's conduct either in or in (fucsl of public office. What the ouoled Republican was getting ol is this: Mr. Nteon long ago perceived his own NmitaUons in dealing dose-range with iwopte. In his campaigns for ofn«, and !<artk«larly for the White House, he sought to minima* any possible political <>ad penonal damage from these evident shortcoming* by devices aimed at tTOtroBtng the "campaign environment" m which he moved. Thu meant carefully contrived public •ippraraaces, minimum direct exposure to the preas through conferences and interviews, avoidance of the traumatic (for him) business of confronting either ordinary voting foflt or political leaden to uopredsctahfe one-on-one situstiom, But a president, thrown almost in*vitabfr into all kinds of problems he can't tone*, requires a rich variety of (•sman contacts to fuel his imagination •ad reinforce whatever creative impulses he may bring to the job DON OAKLEY Thta difficult leap Mr. NUon has not made. In the While House fortress which automatically fosters a certain isolation for all presidents, he has moved as he did in his campaign - to control his whole "environment" But In this case, that of course means managing the entirety of government. and Its approach to problems «hich in this ate are inescapably immense, in a manner which supports the President's great lack In the human field. So he has contrived to run the presidency as the carefully closeted solitaire player, shuffling the key cards whose symbols spell major foreign and domestic problems. And, to reinforce his chosen devices of control, he has surrounded himseU with aides who would keep him secure In his weaknesses — rather than try to help him compensate for them by wide- ranging. understand^* contacts with th* "human stuff" in politics, in ihb Ifownroenl, and in those abroad A president, as any maa, deserve* wsoe sympathy as be pays the cost of hw frailties.

August is the month when the real gasoline crunch will be felt, says Udall. who then proceeds to give the very kind of advice that could precipitate that crunch and other kinds as well: "My advice is for people U> take their vacations before August and plan to stay rioter to home."
