He served as U.S. ambassador to Britain in the days ol Munich and Adolf Hitler. The elder Kennedy is still agged with an isolationist label rom those early World War II ays when he tried to keep Amerca out of the war "unless we are Hacked." He was a good friend of British 'rime Minister Neville Chamber- ain and staunch admirer ol Chamberlain's "p e a ce in our time" dealings with Hitler. * * A He was called an appeaser, charge he said was 'false and malicious."

Kathleen Kennedy, already ai| war widow, was killed in a planejl crash in France in 1£M8 at the ag of 28. Her husband, son [British duke, had been killed in World War II combat. Success at a youthful age seems !o be a family pattern. President of a Boston bank at age 25, Joe Kennedy Sr. said: "It's no crime to be young." Now his son Jack, at 43 one ofj the youngest presidential nominees in history, is fighting the stigma of a youthful appearance! in seeking a venerated office. The Kennedy clan has politics in its blood. Jack's grandfather. Patrick J. Kennedy, started out running a saloon and became an East Boston political boss. His mother, Rose, was the daughter of famed Boston Mayor John F. (Honey Fitz) Fitzgerald. Perhaps as imbued with politics i as Jack are his two brothers, Edi ward and Robert, both lawyers | and stalwart campaigners. The youngest, Edward, 28, nicknamed Teddy, took over in 1958 as Jack's campaign manager and has been in the thick of things since. When Jack ran for the senate in] 1952, brother Robert F. had fhe| campaign job. Since then, Bobby, 33, rose to a pronrnent role as chief counsel of the Senate investigations subcommittee. Last September, Bobby quit his Senate investigating job to write a book about labor rackets, entitled 'The Enemy Within." It was published in the midst of the 1560 Strut Stalt.. !
