Profile Of A Candidate: -- Richard M Nixon By United Press Inlematidn» K for nothing -jlso, Richard Mil hous Nixon will go down in hi] lory for having raised the vice presidency to a new level of im portance in the American polill cal system. President Dwight D. Eisenhower gave him tho opportunity. The yoilrtt California, ambitious but carefully self-disciplined, made the most of it. Ho became the nations first real "undarsludy" for the presidency. In 13 years of public service, Nixon already has lived whal would have been for most men, a political lifetime. Picked from private life by a newspaper advertisement seeking a 1S48 OOP congressional candidate, he moved swiftly to the vice presidency in six years which spanned both House and Senate membership. Three times Nixon was pushed close to the point of becoming "acting president" by Eisenhower illnesses. Each time that role was averted. Tho vice president took on added duties under presidential direction but never t h e power of executive decision. From the outset of his first term, Elsenhower made a "work Ing iWrlner 1 ' of tho Quaker-bred young attorney from Whllticr Calif.

Nixon's bid for the presidency. Visited Asian Nations Ho and Mrs. Nixon spent 70 days visiting more than a scord of Asian countries on a glodc-cip cling tour pitted with diplomatic and political booby-traps. Ha came through without stumbling Other foreign trips followed, tn all, Nixon has traveled almost 160,000 miles abroad, visiting countries as the President's representative. The Nixons hit the headlines in 1D58 when they were stoned anc spat upon in South America by Communist - led demonstrators in Lima, Peru, £nd Caracas, Venezuela. Again, Nixon made major news when he visited Russia and Poland in the summer of 1659.

Real Politician A politician to his fingertips, Nixon has paced his pre-cortveh- llon campaign with care. Following New York Gov. Ntlson A. Rockefeller's December annourtcc- ment that he would not seek the GOP presidential IK minatiori, Nixon on Jan. 9, his 47th birthday, made his long « deferred announcement that he would'be a formal candidate in the presidential primaries -- but not personally campaign in them. Nixon piled up Impressive Votes in the eight primaries in Which he was entered. In most of them he had no Republican opposition. "It's a mistake to run for the nomination and take your eye ol the election," he said months before the conventions. "II you're running for the election, you prove yourself worthy of (he nom nation. And I don't believe in tearing down party opponents. Ev en taking notice of them, excepl n a friendly way, Is out." The outgoing chief execli- ;ive capped the Nixon buildup with several open endorsements early in I960. Some Nixon bakers felt Eisenhower was taking a ainfully long time to say what re did -- just as they believed he aggcd in coming to Nixon's aid vhen the vice presidential nom! nee got into his 1952 campaign 'expense fund" dilemma. Political Trial The 1052 incident was Nixon's roughest political trial. Midway n Eisenlrowcr's first campaign, t was disclosed that Nixon had accepted $18,235 from a group of California supporters for use n defraying his political expenses as a senator. The news catne as a political shock, with many Republicans hitting the panic button and demanding he be dropped from the ticket. But Nixon, in a I'ramatic television explanation which Democrats denounced as "soap opera," detailed his personal finances and declared he received none of the California "fund" for his personal use. Telegrams and letters of support, which Nixon invited, poured into GOP headquarters. Eisenhower "vindicated" his running-mate and the ticket scored But in 1954 the Democrats.rj: vived their description of Nixon as "tricky Dick" in the course of his slam-bang campaign for Republican congressional candidates that year. His charge that Democrats had sheltered a "left - wing clique which has tolerated the Communist conspiracy" infuriated many Democrats -- notably former President Harry S. Truman and House Speaker Sam Rayburn. In 1956, Nixon and Eisenhower were renominated by acclamation and won in an even bigger avalanche of voles. Nixon played down the "Reds in govern- ment" Issue which ho had stress-] *d earlier. Anti - Nixon sentiment was 53 and was soon able to break spawned first by his slugging campaign against Rep. Voorhis (0-Callf.) In Jerry his - . , first victory, and again by his defeat of Rep. Helen Gahagan Douglas when he won his Senate seal in 1950. · Headline Role Nixtrt won admirers and critics by his headline role In Ito) Hiss · Chambers case during his first House term. Nixon was almost clone in doubting tha denial of Alger Hiss, a respected Cornier State Department official accused of having been a former Communist spy by Whiltaker Chambers a Time magazine editor and confessed ex- Red. Hiss eventually was indicted tot- perjury, convicted at his second trial and served a prison term. In the vice presidency, Nixon has repeatedly carried the ball for Eisenhower on issues, including foreign aid and extension of the reciprocal trade program But he has been careful not to intrude on prerogatives of the President. His reluctance to depart from the administration position on some issues has promoted criticism from Republicans like Rockefeller. When Eisenhower has been III or absent.

Nixon was born Jan. 9, 1913, at Yorba Linda, Calif., the son of Frank A. and Hannah Millions S'ixon. As a youth, he worked in the 'amily grocery store, learned to llay the piano and excelled in debate. He was graduated from Whittier College in 1034 and won a scholarship to Duke University, where he earned his law degree n 1937. Opened Law Office Back in Whitlier, he opened a law office and soon met Patiricia ^yan, a slender, brown - eyed "raduate of the University of Cal- fornia who was then teaching at Whittier High School. They were married in 1!HO. Nixon left his law practice in .9-12 to work for the wartime Of- ijce of Emergency Management in'Washington. In August, 1942, le entered the Navy. When Nixon went to the South Pacific, Pat ook a government job in San Francisco. He was mustered out in January. 1946, as a lieutenant commander, and has maintained his reserve commission throughout lis vice presidency. The Nixons have two daughters, Patricia, born Feb. 21, 1946, and Julie, born July 5, 19(8.

By WILLIAM HOPPER Written For The Associated Press I guess I'm what you might call a dramatic second banana in television, and I think it's the best spot in the bunch. As Paul Drake, the detective who acts as a kind of runner (or Perry Mason, I can enjoy two great acting fulfillments -- I'm creating a personality, and I'm needed. By that I don't mean that ['m indispensable, either as Bill time, we have to tell a full story and sometimes a pretty complicated one. Obviously there isn't time to include all the action that is necessary to the slory and foi| full understanding of the details by the audience. So they have to be explained with a different device. In the "Perry Mason Show" notice that many of the necessary details--too minute to be present-; ed in action but too important to the solution to be ignored-come out in conversations between the regular characters. In one short phone conversation, Drake and Mason can let the audience in on story details that might take many minutes to enact on| the screen. That's why 1 say that; Hopper or as Paul Drake. But the Ip or 50mebody Iik , second banana is a necessary in- jrcdient of a show like ours. If there weren't a Paul Drake, ihcre'd have to be a character iike him.
