TOP OF THE WEEK:
COVER STORY: VICE-PRESIDENT SPIRO T. AGNEW ON THE FIRING LINE: The old gag had it that a man was elected Vice President and was never heard of again, and -- during the term, at least -- that has almost invariably been true. Now, in ten months in Washington, an obscure ex-governor of Maryland has put the Vice Presidency into the firing line of public opinion -- and turned the unknown name of Spiro T. Agnew into the household word he always hoped it would be. Along the way, Agnew's multisyllabic denunciations of hippies, dissenters and all who question the old-fashioned virtues have earned him the gratitude of Middle America and the disapproval of liberals and language lovers alike. General Editor Kenneth Auchindoss writes of the Vice President's blossoming, drawing on files from Washington's Robert Shogan, who has followed Agnew since the 1968 campaign, and from White House correspondent Henry Hubbard and others.

THE CONTRARY U.S. VOTERS: The U.S. electorate voted last week to confound trend spotters. Voters gave victory to two Nixon-style Republicans in gubernatorial races in New Jersey and Virginia -- and to a raft of Democratic mayoral candidates in big cities, plus a maverick incumbent in New York. Associate Editor Richard Boeth sums up the nationwide results, and Associate Editor David Alpern details the mayoralty contests in New York, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Detroit.
APOLLO 12: THE EXPLORATION BEGINS: An air of solid confidence marks the activities at Cape Kennedy this week as the countdown for Apollo 12 -- the mission to take men to the moon for the second time -- goes on. With the experience of Apollo 11 to draw on, this second mission will conduct much more extensive operations on the lunar surface. The story, by Science editor George Alexander, includes the details of just what the astronauts will be doing at each stage of their eleven-day mission.
THE ABSENTEE EXECUTIVE: For some executives, an afternoon's work consists of a three-hour lunch or a trip to an art gallery or movie theater. For others, it is eighteen holes of golf, disguised as a search for sales prospects. Whatever the dodge, the problem of the AWOL executive is becoming increasingly serious -- and expensive -- for U.S. companies. The games that unhappy, frustrated or just plain frightened executives play are examined in this week's Spotlight on Business, researched by reporter Barbara Davidson and Newsweek correspondents and written by Associate Editor John DeMott.
