Reporters and cameramen will be able to get a little more sleep and police and Secret Service escorts can relax. F o r d ' s commuting h a s created a new style for a new president. It is reminiscent, in a way, of Harry S. Truman's early morning walks. The daily appearances give people a chance to see him, and reporters a chance for informal chats. Ford is an early morning commuter--off before 7:30 a.m. He is back by 8 p.m. People can .count on it. It has made him one of the a 12-hour day at the office. "It's been a long day," the President conceded to reporters with a tired smile. He said he always does some reading on the 15-minute drive. One evening, it he looked up along the homebound route, he could have seen youngsters on a grassy hillside holding aloft'a hand-lettered sign, saying "Hel lo, Mr. President." Another horseback night, joined a girl on the evening welcome home regulars on hu. street, Crown View Drive in suburban Alexandria,. Va.
