Doltn Democrat-Times C Thursday, July 21, '60 This Man Kennedy--3 Sen. Kennedy Is A Man In A Hurry · Editors Note -- Tie man who taplurcd the Democrats presidential nomination has convinced friends and foes of his dazzling political craftsmanship. '· Now another, tougher lest is ahead for John Fitzgerald Kcnne- dv. What qualities of mind and heart will ho bring to it? What docs the record indicate: What is the fill! significance of two important issues he carries into Ihe presidential contest--his religion and his age? These and related questions are explored in a three-part series by Relnian Morin, AP's double Pulitzer Prize winner who has covered Kennedy both during the precon- vention campaigns and during his liours of triumph in Los Angeles. By RELMAN MORIN Associated Press Special correspondent Sen. John F. Kennedy looks like the casual man. relaxed, leisurely, the supreme practioner of the cool sell. When he is running hardest in a campaign, he seems to be strolling. Making a speech, he is more often thoughtful than fervent. He seldom shows his feelings. They lie behind the boyish grin. Neither personal attacks, campaign setbacks, nor political disappointments ever seem to crack his marble calm. This is the surface Image of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the Democratic candidate for president. It reflects very little of the real Kennedy. Actually, the senator is a man in a hurry. Began Drive 4 Years Ago Nearly four years ago, before he was 40, he began preparing his drive for the Democratic nomi- ment insurance, depressed areas and farm problems. One of his most effective speeches was on the challenge to America. In it, ho used a statistic about the undernourished, I asked him where he got it. Kennedy turned lo an Aide, 'What's the authority for that figure?" The aide said he would have to look it up. "Yes, get it," Kennedy said. "If I'm going to use the figure, I want to be sure it's right." He set up a beautifully-engineered organization. Smooth-Working Pros In part, the Kennedy blitz was a product of his smooth-working team of professionals. They overlooked few bets in the tedious, complicated, many sided labyrinth of politics. Among the principals are Theodore C. Sorenson, Ne- Dailcy, Connecticut Democratic chairman, wore out working for Kennedy before ha ever announced. They appear to have made no mistakes. "We made some," an aide grins, "but they didn't show." The whole Kennedy family pitched in. Family Helps Protestant, head of the trust;" Pierre Salinger, braska brain former California newspaperman, press chief; Steven Smith, the senator's brother-in-law, the appointments expert; Lawrence O'Brien, veteran oston politician, the advance man when Kennedy came into a state, and Louis Harirs, professional pollster. In addition, Gov. Abraham Rin- incoff of Connecticut, and John Kennedy's wife, Jacqueline, his mother, Rose, three sisters, Patricia, Jean and Eunice, and his two brothers Robert and Teddy,: all went out into the hustings to iclp. They met the ladies, made speeches, gave teas, appeared on television. Bobby, the campaign manager, is a tousle-hcailed dynamo. Unlike his brother, who seems to run cool, Bobby "ran scared" through the whole campaign. Kennedy presented an attractive figure. The voters saw a slim, well- tailored man with level blue eyes and a shock of reddish-brown hair. His boyish grin and ambling manner reminded them of actor Jimmy Stewart. Kennedy graduated with honors from Harvard and he makes no effort to disguise it. He points up an argument with quotations from Greek philosophers, Renaissance! writers, poets and statesmen. And he does this in an unmistakably' Harvard accent. On or off the public platform, he has taste and style. Talks With Conviction He talks with conviction, generally in machine gun staccato, but he never orates in the old Fourth oj July manner. He has a quick sharp sense of humor -- but uses it sparingly to avoid the fateful tag, in politics, of appearing to be a wise-cracker. He doesn't pretend to have been born in a log cabin. He campaigned by private plane and spent money where it was needed. Nor did he duck questions about his religion, Roman Catholic, or his age, 43. He charmed audiences, particularly younger people and women "We just love you, Jack," said a University of New Hampshire cow "I'm a Republican, senator," stw an elderly California woman, "bul you're making a Democrat out ol If Ike's Not Too Busy Have Him Check The Gold FT. KNOX (AP)^Jaiz drummer Al Carter, 40, wondered it (ho 12% billion dollars in Gold stored at the 'gold vault here was safely stored. So he cnmo to check. Custodian Albert Evans gave is word of honor the gokl was okay, but he wouldn't let the ^hicagoan closer thnn the gate. Carter has written dozens of letters asking admittance to the vault but has been turned down every time. His last letter, to Mrs. Dwighl Eisenhower, explained he didn't "want to bother the President right now because he's busy with Mr. Khrushchev and Mr. Castro.' He asked if Mrs. Eisenhower might bring up the subject to the Miffed 40 And 8 Will Move Meet To Miami Instead MIAMI, Ho.

Well, T came here to appear at a summer arts festival where people on vacation respond to world nation. He raced around the coun- problems while they simmer and try like a whirlwind, forever on the go. making speeches, meeting with politicians, exposing himself to potential delegates and voters, lavishing energy on political chores. He is a fighter, a driver, and a shrewd field general. When he felt he was set, Kennedy announced early, breaking with tradition. Then he mopped a hard schedule, entering seven presidential primary elections. Some were calculated risks and some outright gambles -- particularly Wisconsin and West Virginia. Again flouting tradition, Kennedy said on the eve of the Wisconsin primary, "This IE it. If 1 lose, I'm out" He won that election and all the others. He is thorough, meticulous, a man of intense concentration. Briefs Himself Carefully Kennedy briefs himself carefully on a wide range of subjects.

Not Whole Truth Well, that is true, for sure, but it only alerts me to those half- iruths which aren't whole truths ut which are part of the whole picture which n father must soften n presenting the portrait of his daughter. If she would rather be antiquated at 7, and perhaps at 30 presented as 23, it is the function of the father to box the calendar to his daughter's will. In her own way Tracy made up :he distance between her age of 7, and Tommy's almost 10, and she showed that kind of uncanny feminine sense of adjustment that ;n my. opinion represenls'military genius. There are those who feel that true military ability consists ol getting the other person, without waste of himself, to bend his ability to your purpose and the sustainment of your endeavor Under this definition the best militarism is a good marriage.

Mike Mansfield (D-Mont) sug- ;ested Monday it is time to consider elimination of expensive national political conventions with all their hoopla and sign-waving shenanigans." He proposed that both parties look into the possibility of substituting federally-financed primaries to choose nominee for president and vice president. He also suggested possible federal financing for election campaigns. Mansfield, a vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said such a system would help to neutralize "Ihe factor of money in the nominating and electing process" and give the people a greater voice in elections.
