Is a vivacious. Scottish-born red-head who has (lone inucti to endear Washington to the Kefauver clan. The clan, which Includes Linda 10; David. 6; Diane, 4; and Gail! 15 months, Is an average one--except when the Senator appears <m television. Then the dickens breaks loose in the family circle. Last year. when KcfauYer was investigating oi-gimtecct crime, his children disliked his work "Oil. Mummy," they sold "Daddy's Keltiiig mU ch more publicity tlian the cowboys on TV—and he's not nearly as good " But Nancy K>lauver is a wise wife. She laughed with her children and stuck by her husband as she has done nil her married life, she'll have lots more TV lo contend with during her husband's race tor the Democratic, presidential no'iiina- ilon. Actually Mrs. Ktfauver has n any claims to fame of lier own.

Mrs. Kefiuiver is upset, however, t ver .ct-ent publicity she's given her hn.shantl. Wlule appearing on a Washinc- | ton iifiworli recmtly, she siwke l Jrnnkly of her family's reactions to | the Senator's presidential campaign. "I had no idea all this Mould be , rimed," >lie fays. "Actually 1 real- ise his becoming president is such a far cry from actuality, it's ludicrous to even think aboui it." But she has managed to add dip- nity and charm to her husband's career. In 1048 during his senatorial campaign they toured Tennessee together, "I always stayed In the background and never made ally speeches," she says. "Perhaps, that's one reason he won," Then during the crime Investigations last year, while the eyes of the world were upon her husband, his pretty wife occasionally stole the show. After all, cameramen are human, and Nuncy Kefauver is known for her good looks. Many people here believe Mrs. Kefauver is one of her husband's uiggest drawing cauls. She Is well known and admired In Washington. She Is even the topic of one of the Senator's favorite Jokes. "There's nothing Hed about me." he says, "except my red-headed wife." Young Nancy piaotl, daughter of baronet Sir Stephen J. pigotl — knighted for his part in builmng the Queen ships, Elizabeth and Mary—came to visit her mother's home town, Chattanooga, Tenn in 11)3-1. "I came to see Ihe countrv." she says, "but Instead 1 met the" Senator. + "Frankly," she adds, "I'm awfully t'lad t did." llKSi \0im L\srs, uuior R-Upl, Bean (leftl. town cler, holds ballot box as 12-year-old David Austin casts the tlrsl ballot-a mumtc after midnight-u, waterville Valley, N.
