Just 36 hours after Ford nom-
inated him for the vacant vice
presidency, the former New
York governor flew from his
vacation retreat in Seal Harbor,
Maine, to address some 350 Re-
publicans at a $100-a-plate din-
ner at this seaside resort.

dence, Rockefeller greeted Re-

James Nugent and former GOP
governor John Chafee with bear-
hugs before marching to an air-
port fence to greet some 100

-that's my only job.,"
Although his own campaign-
ing plans are unsettled pending
congressional action on his nom-
ination, Rockefeller said that
when he does bit the campaign
trail, "I'll campaign for people
but not against anybody."
After a 40-minute drive from
Providence, the Rockefeller en-
tourage was greeted by two
crowds of demonstrators among
some 200 persons at the gates
of Ms. John Slocum's estate,
where the dinner was held.

Probably not. All things considered you do
what you do pretty doggone well. After all, no one
has taken yourjob. And you're eating regularly.
But have you ever considered what doing your
job just a little better might mean?
Money. Cold hard coin of the realm.
If each of us cared just a smidge more about
what we do for a living, we could actually turn that
inflationary spiral around. Better products, better
service and better management would mean savings
for all of us. Savings of much of the cash and frayed
nerves it's costing us now for repairs and inefficiency.
Point two..By taking more pride in our work
we'll more than likely see America regaining its
strength in the competitive world trade arena. When
the balance of payments swings our way again we'll
all be better off economically.
So you see-the only person who can really
do what you do any better is you.

Both in Providence and as he
made his way through a crust
of guests and reporters to the
tent covering the dinner area
here, Rockefeller said he wasn't
taking anything for granted as
far as his confirmation by Con-
gress was concerned "in a de-
mocracy where people vote."
Rockefeller was substituting
for Ford, who had accepted an
invitation to speak here before
he assumed the presidency 12
days ago. The dinner to bene-

candidates in this heavily Dem-
ocratic state was Rockefeller's
