In a move that may help set the tone for the first days of his Administration, Gov.-elect Pete Wilson on Tuesday named a 35-member advisory council to assist in his transition to power. The bipartisan list of appointees includes old names and new, women and minorities, people in the private sector and longtime government officials. Many of the members campaigned for Wilson or raised money for his election.

If elected governor, Pete Wilson will have more than the usual reasons to accept telephone calls from the Newport Beach headquarters of the Irvine Co. The caller may be his former mayoral press secretary and campaign manager: Larry Thomas, now the Irvine Co.'s vice president of corporate communications. It may be another former campaign manager: Jack Flanigan, now the Irvine Co.'s vice president of government relations. Or it may be his friend, Donald L.

Pete Wilson and his top aides told President Bush's political advisers during a lengthy strategy session Saturday that Bush needs to spend more time in California and mount an all-out effort there to assure victory in November.

Classic. Traditional. Elegant. Those are the words developer Kathryn Thompson uses to describe the gown she will wear to President-elect George Bush's inaugural ball Jan. 20. Thompson is the philanthropist who makes grand entrances at local galas in frocks that are avant-garde and fun--frills out of fairy tales. (You remember. It was Thompson who bedazzled guests at the Tiffany Ball in a scarab-blue bolero jacket displaying zillions of beads in the shape of the blinding Tiffany diamond.

So far, the campaign for the hearts, the minds and the pocketbooks of Orange County Republicans in 1988 presidential politics is a two-candidate affair, with GOP leaders here queuing up behind Vice President George Bush and Rep. Jack F. Kemp of New York. Still, there are other candidates not far off in the wings. Even so, Orange County Republicans generally agree that the race for their party's presidential nomination will be over well before the California primary next June 7.

Jack Kemp's campaign is fizzling. Bob Dole's is picking up speed. And George Bush is holding steady. That's the latest GOP presidential campaign report from Orange County on the three major Republican presidential candidates--Rep. Jack Kemp of New York, Sen. Robert J. Dole of Kansas and Vice President George Bush. All three have scheduled major campaign stops in Orange County in the next month. Dole will be the keynote speaker Saturday at the state Republican convention in Anaheim.
