A*8 Alton Evening Telegraph Thursday, August 24. Km McGregor's ideas parallel Nixon's on political tactics By GAYLORD SHAW WASHINGTON (AP> When President Nixon asked Clark MacGrepor to take command of liis re-election campaign, he didn't give the then-presidential counselor detailed instructions on how to do his job. They weren't necessary, MacGregor says, because his personal and political philosophy and his reaction to events are virtually identical to Nixon's. "I am comfortable enough ta my 12 years of association with Richard Nixon," he adds, that '-I don't have to check" with the President before making a move. If Nixon doesn't agree with how he operates, MaeGrcgor says, "I'll hear from him." "I haven't yet." he added hi an interview in the days before Nixon's nomination for a second term at the Republican convention in Miami Beach. MacGregors move to the reelection committee headquarters a block from the White House was not the first he has made at Nixon's request. He gave up a safe House seat and 10 years' seniority on the important Judiciary Committee (o run for the Senate in 1970 when Nixon saw a chance for the Republicans to win control of the Senate an<j .tapped the best candidates he could find. MacGregor lost to Hubert H. Humphrey, but, Nixon shortly summoned him to the White House to serve as director of •congressional relations. That was his job when John Mitchell bowed to his wife Martha's 'demands and quit as campaign director July 1. MacGregor. as an' administration stalwart on the Judiciary Committee, had formed close ties with the former attorney general and was Mitchell's first choke .as a ro . placement in the campaign director's job. Nixon needed no urging, and the 50-year-old Minneapolis lawyer moved again. For MacGregor, it's a job with a future something like that of a flagpole sitter's: There is nowhere to go but down. The pundits, pollsters and most of the public see Nixon winning handily in November over Sen. George McGovern. and if he does, the credit will haixlly gn to MacGregor. Hut if Nixon should ... MacGregor's first message to the campaign workers was a warning against overconfidence. Although he i.s certain Nixon will win. lie thinks it will be a lot closer than ninny others do, and he i.s calling tor a strong, steady, dedicated effor! by all hands. They were attributes that contributed to the close relationship that developed between MiicGregor and Mitchell. But MacGregor is far more open and congenial by nature than Mitchell', and has taken on a role as party s p o k e s in a n that Mitchell shunned. Up has held more news conferences in the few weeks he has been in (he ?fi(),0(iO-a-ycar post, than Mitchell ever did as campaign director. Where MacGregor is unable to match his predecessor is in his working relations with the White House staff. Mitchell enjoyed an intimacy with Nixon that, transcended official duties and permitted him direct access to the oval office of the President. MacGregor says he sometimes talks to Nixon two or three times a day by telephone, but he works mainly through While chief of staff H. H. Haldeman. MaeGrcgor says he sees Haldeman and other top Nixon aides 'almost daily, usually at an early morning White House staff conference. "I'm mostly a lislrner," says MacGregor, unconsciously underscoring complaints that are beginning to be heard in the field that campaign control i.s slipping more and more into the hands of the White House staff. MacGregor spends a lot of his time traveling around the country to meet party leaders a " d lalk to campaign workers. MacGregor i.s enthusiastic himself about the accomplishments of the Nixon administration and his earnest, articulate manner makes his enthusiasm contagious. It helped account for his success as chief lobbyist, for Nixon's legislative program in Congress, where he earned a reputation as a friendly persuader. Man calls for equality with female fimdsters By RUTH ANN RAGLAND ALBUQUEHQUK, N . M . (AP) — A Women's Studies program is funded at the University of New Merico, and a male professor says that, what's good for the goose is good for the gander. Dr. Kichaul I'. Tomasson, chairman of the Sociology Department, who says he's changed at least 5(1 per cent of his three kids' diapers, Is calling for equal time and equal money for the men. He said the idea of a Women's Studies is "absolutely silly," but if the women are going to have it, the men should too. He's submitted his proposed curriculum for Men's Studies, complete with courses covering the "Mythology of Male Superiority" and "The Legal Status of American Men," to the university curriculum committee. But he said he ha.-;n'l received an official .response. He said his latest greeting is, "Whose husband are you?" Tomasson maintains the Women's Lib movement has merit in advocating equal pay and equal treatment in careers. And he says "We should get rid of sexual linkage for occupations." He said he performs house duties such as dish washing, cooking and helping with the children, boys, "liberated of course," ages 9,10, and 13. He doesn't iron, but then, "my wife never irons either."
