Blythevffle (Ark.) Courier News — Thursday, April V, IWI - Pig« Mh» A REAL SWINGER In clown make-up U movie actress Candlce Bergen, daughter of •ventriloquist Edgar Bergen. The occasion for the slapstick came when solemn-faced Candlce, above left, arrived at the Alexander Dobritch circus In Los Angeles, on assignment for a national magazine to take photographs of the circus. Besides an actress and a sometime clown, she also happens to be an accomplished camera buff. Fate, Suave Appearance Elect Young Congressmen By JACK MILLER WASHINGTON (AP) - Slender, blond William Steiger sat grinning in the great, high- backed chair of the congressional office. He looked like one of the working students of Capitol Hill who had sneaked into his boss's inner sanctum after hours to see how it feels to sit in the chair of a member of the United States Congress. In fact, William Steiger IS a member of Congress, a freshman Republican from Oshkosh, Wis., and one of the three youngest members. All are 28. Steiger, who looks about 22, considers it understandable that people feel some shock when they find out he's a congressman. * . * . * When he was elected to the Wisconsin legislature at 22, another legislator mistook him for a page and ordered him to run an errand. Not lacking a sense of humor, Steiger did It. He recalls with amusement that the legislator later served on a committee of which Steiger was chairman. Steiger now has six years of legislative experience behind htm, and his youthful appearance could hardly be more misleading. The other two youngest members, Reps. William J. Green, D-Pa., and Donald W. Reigle, Jr., R-Mich., also have enormous experience for their age. Each of the three already has won a measure of distinction in the House of Representatives, a place where members address each other as distinguished gentlemen and a good many are. And each of the three, to the dismay of a lot of. Capitol Hill secretaries, is married. Green, already in Congress three years, has risen with unusual speed to the chairmanship of a subcommittee. Riegle has become the youngest member ever named to the prestige-laden Appropriations Committee. Steiger has been elected secretary and executive board member of tbe freshman Republican organization and is a leader among five of them, including Riegle, who have introduced election reform legisla- tion. How did they rise so soon to the nation's top lawrnaking body? In each career, fate hai weighed heavily. Green's father, former Rep William J. Green, died in 1963 and the son won the seat. * * * Steiger had just been graduafr ed from the University of consin when the state assembly man of his Oshkosh district resigned. Steiger was elected. Riegle had just about com pleted bis doctor's degree Harvard Business School when a Republican leader in his hometown of Flint, Mich., thought of Riegle as a possible candidate. But all three knew what they wanted. They had dreamed since childhood of running for Congress some day. Each possesses the perfect image for politicians in the age of television. To a man, they have fresh-scrubbed, all-American handsomeness. And they speak as smoothly and articulately as television correspondents. NEWS BRIEFS FLORENCE, Ariz. (AP) Gov. Jack Williams and a group of Mesa Junior Chamber of Commerce members have presented 27 prisoners at the state prison with a Jaycee charter.
