BY NADINE COIIODAS
A few weeks ago people were
laughing at Vice President Spi-
ro T. Agnew and his zesty anti-
protest remarks.
But now many of those smiles
have turned to frowns as both
members and non-members of
the "effete corps of impudent
snobs" are reconsidering the vice
presidential rhetoric.
"This is serious business," says
Mobe steering committee mem-
ber Marty Halpern. Referring to
Agnew's comment that the gov-
ernment "can separate them
(dissidents) from o u r society
with no more regret than we
should feel over discarding rot-
ten apples from a barrel," Hal-
pa iethree

pern says, "it brings to mind
Title II of the McCarren Act
which provides for concentra-
tion camps."
Another Mobe steering com-
mittee members, Joe Tiboni,
says Agnew's comments are
"scary.
"That Agnew's remarks can
gain acceptance m a y indicate
that society may be ready to
condone repression against dis-
senters." Several veterans groups
have pledged support for Ag-
new's views. And yesterday Sen.
Barry Goldwater (R-Ariz.) re-
affirmed Agnew's views.
Barry Cohen, chief organizer
for the Oct. 15 moratorium, be-
lieves there is a "unity between
the statements of Nixon and Ag-

new and Mitchell (Attorney
General). Nixon predominates
on Vietnam, the other two on
the domestic front." Cohen says
Mitchell indicated on a TV news
show Sunday that he would go
farther than Agpew in his ac-
tions toward war protesters.
"It is pretty clear Nixon is
trying to establish the atmos-
phere he preciptated and cre-
ated as vice president - like
the most frigid days of the cold
war," Cohen says. He maintains
that Nixon's speech Monday was
"to lay the groundwork for a
policy of roll-back Communism
as in the Dulles days and to pre-
pare the public for escalation of
the war."

Agnew's remarks, Cohen con-
tends are indications that the
administration "intends to deal
harshly" with those people not
agreeing with the Nixon ideo-
logy. "By precluding certain
ideas as unacceptable, Nixon,
Agnew and Mitchell are trying
to make the silent majority the
gagged majority."
Both Halpern and Cohen be-
lieve Agnew is "laying the
ground" for Nixon to speak out
against protesters. "Nixon is
afraid himself to be quite so
open about it," Halpern says.
"He's trying to preserveshis
middle-of-the-road image."
Similarly M i k e Modelski,
chairman of Young Americans

for Freedom on campus believes
Agnew is "performing a func-
tion in the administration. He
appeals to the silent majority
- the people t h a t Newsweek
likes to write about."
"This fits in w i t h Nixon's
strategy in the s o u t h - it
keeps George Wallace people in
with the president," he says.
But chairman of the Young
Republicans here, Craig Ruff,
believes Agnew is speaking for
himself. "The Vice President is
a free thinker," Ruff says.
"What comes to his mind rhe-
torically comes out."
Both Ruff and Modelski were
not pleases' with Agnew's com-
ments, however. "T don't at all

agree with Agnew's comments
and I think they were ill-timed,"
says Ruff.
Modelski agrees that Agnew's
views are "generally off-base."
"I don't t h i n k calling people
names proves a lot in the end,"
he adds.
Though Mobe workers see
threats of severe repression veil-
ed in Agnew's remarks, R u f f
and Modelski seem less concern-
ed about that possibility. "I
don't think by his word Agnew
is showing a like for concentra-
tion camps," Ruff says.
Modelski notes that "repres-
sion is counter productive - I
don't see how that fits. I guess
I'm not as paranoid as some
people about that."

STRONG GRASS-ROOTS SUPPORT for President Nixon's
stand in Vietnam was reported yesterday by Republican leaders
in Western states.
At a Western States Republican Conference, committeemen and
women said the "silent majorities" in their states backed Nixon's plan
of gradual withdrawal from Vietnam.
Arizona Sen. Barry Goldwater told the conference that he be-
lieves Vice President Spiro Agnew's attacks on peace movement
leaders express "the sentiment of the vast, overwhelming majority
of the American people."
