THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST 21,1952. NIXON AND FAMILY: Left to right, Mrs. Nixon, holding Julie, who's now 4, and Nixon with daughter Pat, who's now 6.- Vice-Presidential Candidate Has Meteoric Political Career By DOUGLAS LARSEN WASHINGTON — (NEA)— Richard M Nixon came to Washington in January, 1947, admittedly one of the greenest of the big new batch of youthful veterans who had been elected to the 80th Congress. Now, barely 5% years later, he's holding down second place on lie GOP presidential ticket. Nixon had a good idea right at the start He believed that the most successful way to go after Communists, in and out of government in the U. S., was in a coldly methodical, strictly legal manner. He decried the demagogic, Red-baiting tactics used by 50 many Commie-hunters as un- American and not too effective. And if necessary, 'he thought, tighten the laws to help protect the country against the Red threat. . He parlayed this idea into one af the most meteoric political careers this country has seen in recent generations. It led directly to his nomination for the vice-presidency. If he is elected, at 39 he will become the second youngest man ever to hold that job. John C. Breckinridge, elected in 1856, was 35 years old when he took office. Milestones in the amazing Nixon career include: Responsibility for the contempt of Congress citation of the notor-j ious Red leader, Gerhard Eisler, and the group indictment of Eugene Dennis and others. Leadership in the expose of the activities of A1 g e r Hiss which eventually sent Hiss to jial Authorship of several laws which have given Government officials new weapons for combating the activities of Red agents. The climax of his career came in 1950 when he soundly trounced the popular Helen Gahagan Douglas for one of California's Senate seats. He had been appointed to that seat earlier by Gov. Earl Warren to fill out an unexpired term. In addition to his fight against the Commies, Nixon won national attention for urging that John L. Lewis be charged with violation of a Supreme Court order in connection with the 1947 coal strike. His voting record in Congress stamps him as. a typical liberal Republican. He voted to limit presidential tenure to two terms. He has regularly voted for income tax reductions. He has voted for abolishing the poll tax, for the Taft-Hartley labor act, Greek-Turkish aid, and extension of reciprocal trade agreements. Nixon has a thick mane of curly hair, a lantern jaw and a lean, sometimes awkward frame. He speaks quietly and effectively and has developed into a persuasive public speaker since coming to Washington, "le has exposed himself to Washington's active social life much less than the average Senator. With his wife and two young daughters, he lives very modestly; Before embarking on his highly successful political carrer, Nixon practiced law, worked for the government for a while and spent several years'as an officer in the Navy during the war Bis birthplace is Yorba Linda, Calif. He attended public schools in his state, won his B. A. at Whittier College, and went to Duke for his law degree. Although Nixon's big vote-getting appeal has been based on his fight against Communists, his popularity among Congressmen and political leaders is based on something more than that. Not the back-slapping type, he is sincere and hard-working. As typified by aggressive but clean tactics against the Communists, he is fair-minded and thorough in everything that he tackles. Even most of persons who have aeen hostile witnesses before the committees on which Nixon has served have admitted that. On the whole, Nixon's .tremendous popularity in the West, his great knowledge of the Communist problem and his sincere, crowd- winning personality makes him a valuable, strong running-mate on the GOP ticket. ). ; H you want to make delicious iced tea be. sure to use freshly drawn water in your teakettle: hot vater from the tap may give a strange flavor.
