At the suggestion of President Eisenhower both she and her husband have taken on more of! the official tape cutting" and greet- j ing chores that used to fall to the j Chief Executive and his wife. Now Pai Nixon's role becomes j doubly important since Mamie Ei- j senhower is staying close to the, President during his recovery. And with the likelihood that Ike will not run again, she must be considered a possible first lady if her husband is nominated. . No one doubis that slim, attractive Pat Nixon will be able to ban- j die those additional social obliga-j tions that will fall to her during the •. next few months. For on a number j of occasions in the past she has .gracefully stepped in and helped out. "Often we have called Mrs. Nixon at the last minute to help us out," says an official at the State Department. "And she always does viuuions to have their pictures taken or to appear at public functions." M;tny oi the letters Mrs. Nixon receives are from children, and she always answers them personally. Shortly after she and the VP returned from their tour of Central America, she received the following letter and photograph from an eight-year-old girl in the Canal Zone: "When J saw you on the train I thought you were lovely. I saw you but you probably did not see me. I tried to get. your attention but couldn't. I liked your shoes and your dres.s. f am a Brownie and in the second grade." "Dear Nancy," replied Mrs. Nixon. "I know all about Brownies because my oldest little girl, Tricia, belongs to a group here in Washing- ion. I showed Tricia and her sister. Julie (she hopes to become a Brownie when she is old enough) your picture and they were happy that I had seen some Brownies and | Girl Scouts on our trip to Central America."
