"He was a good friend of Will Hays, former U.S. Postmaster General and movie czar, and my father felt citizens should work in politics," she explained. "I ran petitions for candidates he liked when I still was going barefoot." Mrs. Conn said she and her husband have tried to teach their two sons, 12 and 14, that being a good citizen means "a lot of hard work in politics." "One of my sons was complaining complaining to me the other day that he hadn't gotten over the blisters on his feet from the previous Goldwater rally before I had him out passing handbills again," she laughed.
