FRIDAY, JANUARY 25, 1952 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS jftl « Sketch of • Candidate— fsies Kefauver 1st Race by 60 (first of two dispatches.) By PETKR EDSON WASHINGTON <NEA>—Down in Tennessee they like' to tell about the first law case Bites Kefauver ever had. Only 24 and Just out of Yale law school, Kefauver was representing a store trying to collect an overdue bill. But »'hen he learned that the defendant was a poor widow who needed every penny she could get her hands on, he asked the court to dismiss the suit. The court did, and lawyer Kefauver lost his first case. Eight years later, he lost out on another first try--by 60 votes— when he ran for the Tennessee legislature. But he made It on the second try, and if he doesn't win the nomination for President the first time his hat Is In the ring, it seems more than'likely he'll try again. Politically speaking. Kefauver Is still a youngster. If he does receive ' the Democratic nomination for President at the July 21 convention !n Chicago, It would come as a nice present for his 49th birthday which falls on the following Saturday, July 26. Much of the flavor and atmosphere of Kefauver's upbringing in east Tennessee clings with him still. H« Seems Shy For instance, many political reporters (n Washington find Kefauver a difficult man to interview. He seems shy. He Is Inclined to be inarticulate on subjects in which he is vitally interested and on which he should be voluble. Another view of his character Is that his simplicity hides his polit- 'ical shrewdness. One thing that may make Kefauver seem "dumb but honest," as some of his critics say, is that he Is «o quiet. There is none of the flamboyant politico about him. He i« no arm waver, though he Is quite » hand shaker. People like him, as they like any nice guy. Women are crazy about him. He was bom In Madisonvllle. capital of Monroe County. His father ran the local hardware store &nd hotel. On the edge of town he has ft 1000-acre farm which he still operates.' Estes' grandfather was a Baptist preacher and circuit rider out of Chattanooga. The Kefauvers are of French Huguenot stock. They came to this country from Alsace-Lorraine, in «a(rfern France, In the 17th Century. They settled first In Maryland, then moved on to Tennessee. Wanted to Be Lawyer Young Estes knew right from the start he wanted to be a lawyer. When court was held in Madisonville, all the county lawyers came v to town and^itayed a,t the Kefau- ,gjj ver hotel. Estes .heard them tell ™. stories and so got his first legal '' lore. He went to the university of Tennessee and was graduated in 1924. He played tackle on the football team. The way he tells it, he was a second stringer and bench warmer for the Vote. But when he ran tor Congress he was "promoted" to all-Southern. And when he beat the Crump machine to win election to the Senate, somebody "discovered" that he -had been an all-America tackle. Worked Lumber Camps In Summer vacations he worked In lumber camps around Madison- vllle and the coal fields of the Hnr- lan, Kentucky region, lust across the Tennessee state line. Stories that he worked his way through University of Tennessee are a bit exaggerated. But he did contribute to "his own support by waiting on tables when he went to Yale law CAMFAIGN HAT: Coonskln hat has become a Kefauver symbol.

He £ Pentagon Makes Recommendation On Spanish Bases WASHINGTON (^—The Pentagon has truned over to the State Department its military recommendations on l.he politically touchy matter of U.S.-Spanlsh bases and arms aid agreement. The secret report of an American mission i which went to Spain last, August has been delivered to diplomatic officials after prolonged review by the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Defense Department leaders. it was learned today. The Pentagon's advice, ba^ed on the report of a three-man mission headed by Maj. Gen. James W. Spry of the Air Force, reportedly was confined to presenting information and guidance on purely military aspects such as the desirable locations of U.S. sea and air facilities and the militar..- assistance requirements of Spain.

He got a call to come to their offices one day. He thought it was to discuss the case. Instead they offered him a job. The firm became Sizer, Chambliss and Kefauver. Later he formed his own firm—Kefauver, Duggan and Wilson—and In 10 years he made a good amount of money. Kefauver met the girl he married was asked to pinch hit as date for the sister of Nancy Patterson PJg- gott. But Estes liked Kancy better than her sister. He followed her home to Scotland the next Summer, and they were married In Glasgow in 1935. They have four children: Eleanor, aged 10; David, six; Diane Carey, four, and Gail Estes, a little over a year old. In Washington, they live in a substantial brick house in Spring Valley, and there's all kind of excitement in the neighborhood about the Kefauvers going to the White House—mavbe.
