    Background: UNITED STATES PRESIDENT-ELECT RICHARD NIXON AND VICE-PRESIDENT-ELECT SPIRO AGNEW MET AT MR. NIXON'S VACATION HOME IN KEY BISCAYNE, FLORIDA, AT THE WEEKEND FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE THEY WERE ELECTED. MR. NIXON USED THE OCCASION TO ANNOUNCE THAT MR. AGNEW WOULD BE GIVEN MAJOR NEW POLICY-MAKING RESPONSIBILITIES IN THE NEW ADMINISTRATION. THE VICE-PRESIDENT WILL NOW OPERATE IN AN OFFICE IN THE WHITE HOUSE AND HAVE FULL ACCESS TO THE NEW PRESIDENT'S STAFF.

    THE PURPOSE OF THE NEW RESPONSIBILITIES FOR THE VICE-PRESIDENT, MR. NIXON SAID, WAS TO BRING THE NEW VICE-PRESIDENT "DIRECTLY INTO THE MAINSTREAM" OF POLICY-MAKING IN THE NEW ADMINISTRATION. HOWEVER, UNLIKE PREVIOUS VICE-PRESIDENT, MR. AGNEW WILL NOT HAVE HIS OWN EXECUTIVE OR PRESS STAFF, NOR HIS OWN EXECUTIVE OFFICE DETACHED FROM THE WHITE HOUSE.

    INSTEAD, UNDER THE ARRANGEMENTS EXPLAINED BY MR. NIXON, MR. AGNEW WILL RELY ON THE EXECUTIVE STAFF AND PRESS OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT AND WILL BE SITUATED JUST DOWN THE CORRIDOR FROM THE PRESIDENT'S OFFICE. MR. NIXON ALSO SAID THAT THE VICE-PRESIDENT WOULD HAVE MAJOR DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN RESPONSIBILITIES. THE NATURE OF THE DUTIES HAVE YET TO BE SPELLED OUT.
