MEARS MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — President Nixon and Vice President Spiro T. Agnew have sounded the keynote of a highroad campaign. The political slugging may come later. But a GOP ticket favored by landslide margins in the polls appears likely to con- .centrate on boasting of its own record and prospects. That formula leaves room for slaps at Democratic presidential nominee George McGovern. But it puts the emphasis where Nixon clearly wants it, on a Republican position he described as reflecting "the great principles we Americans believe in together." As the President and the Vice President formally opened their campaign before t h e Republican National Convention Wednesday night, they had an ample dose of criticism for McGovern — but it wasn't like the old days. And it was Nixon who sounded the offensive against the Democrat from South Dakota. The toughest line of the night was his: "Let us reject the policies of those who whine and whimper about our frustrations and call on us to turn inward." That bit of alliteration could have come from a vintage Agnew speech. For his part, Agnew challenged "the piecemeal, inconsistent and illusory policies of George McGovern," and let it go at that. He cast himself as "the President's man," and he spoke of unity: "For this administration there is only one America." It was the speech of a new Agnew, a man who refrained from so much as a mention of the vandalizing protesters who roamed Miami Beach as the convention met. • In another day, they would have stirred scornful Agnew oratory. And in another campaign, McGovern .would have been one of Agnew's "radical liberals." Traditionally, and particularly in the Nixon-Agnew game plan of the congressional campaign two years ago, the vice president has done the heavy partisan hitting, while the President adopts a loftier political posture. But in the 1972 Republican strategy, both candidates may be cast in the latter role. N ixon's accept mice-speech slaps at the proposals of McGovern — whom he never in e n t i o n e d by name — seemed designed to give him the advantage of the offense even as he defended and advertised his performance and proposals. Two speeches, of course, don't make a campaign. But the evidence points to more of what Nixon and Agnew offered the convention. ./ The Republicans have a lead to preserve, not an obstacle to overcome. That position weighs against a strategy that would produce a running, long-distance debate with McGovern. Of course, if the poll ratings change sharply, Republican tactics are likely to change, too. But with McGovern the underdog, said Sen. Robert J. Dole, the Republican national chairman, the President should not carry the political attack during the campaign ahead. "There might be some reaction against us as the big and powerful," he said. Furthermore, a major theme of the Republican convention — a political exercise designed by and for Nixon — was the recruitment of disenchanted Democrats. That end would not be served by a hard-line campaign. And so, at that most partisan of American gatherings, a national political convention, Nixon talked past the delegates to the television audience, "not as a partisan of party, which would automatically divide us, but as a partisan of principles which can unite us." Roy L. French, 79, of Medora, died today at 4:40 a.m. at St. Joseph's Hospital i n Alton. He formerly operated a shoe repair shop in Alton and Wood River for 17 years and moved to Medora in 1946. He was born in Chandlerville Aug. 12, 1893 and married the former Miss Margaret H. Colston in 1914. He was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star and the Masonic Lodge in Medora and the White Shrine in Gillespie. Beside his widow, he is survived by one daughter, Irene Ruyle of Medora; one grandchild; two great grandchildren; three brothers, David and Elmo of Beardstown and Richard of East Alton; four sisters, Bessie Hurt of Peoria, Gladys Me- C o n n e 11 of Beardstown, Maxine Reidel of Goodland, Kan., and Vivian Michael of Meredosia.

Man dies while searching for 3 escapees from IYC Gerson GRAFTON — The head of the Grafton water department and a part-time policeman for many years, Randolph Burl Hill, 65, died early this morning from an apparent heart attack as he and another officer were pursuing three youths who had escaped from the Illinois Youth Commission at Pere Marquette State Park. Hill and Grafton police officer Steve Hayes began a boat search for three youths who escaped from the Pere Marquette facility around 10:23 p.m. and stole a boat at Watson's Boat dock. The youths apparently then stole a second boat that was found near the Grafton boat ramp by Hill and Hayes. When Hill tied up the boat at the ramp he apparently collapsed, after Hayes had left on a motorcycle to check if the one they found was missing at the Arnold Boat Co. When Hayes returned about 10 mintues later, he said he found Hill stretched out on the ramp, apparently dead. Hill was pronounced dead on arrival at Jersey Community Hospital at 3:45 this morning. An inquest and autopsy is pending. The escaped youths were found late this morning in a cornfield in the Nutwood area, with Youth Commission officials trying to capture them. At 7:30 this morning the youths were spotted under the Tender leaf Bridge near Nutwood. Chief Jersey County Deputy William Simpson was called to the scene and stayed for about two hours un^il additional Youth Commission personnel could be called in to continue the search. Grafton citizens have complained about youths stealing cars and boats to make escapes from the Pere Marquette facility and Grafton city officials have been asked to request the Youth Commission either tighten security procedures or relocate the facility out of the area, the Telegraph learned.
