His 'friends say that's a techn cality. Mitchell, a 49-year-old Chi cago lawyer, has been around behind the scenes. He is one of four men who wrot the opening chapter ,of the pblitica success story of Gov. Adlai Steven son,, the Democratic presidential nominee. That was in 1947. Mitchell and his fellow towns men Herman Dunlap Smith an Louis Kohn sold Stevenson an Jacob M. Arvey on the idea tha Stevenson was candidate material Mitchell envisioned Stevenson a U. S. senator. But Arvey decidec he should be governor of Illinois. It was in Stevenson's gubernatorial campaign that Mitchell did hi only public politicking. He made speeches for his candidate. Unofficially, Mitchell has been one of the Illinois governor's mos trusted confidantes and advisers. Old Friends Stevenson, who appointed "Mit chell party leader last Friday, ha known him for 13 years. They me casually while, both were in pri vate law practice in Chicago be fore World War U. Both held State Department jobs for a time during the war. They've kept in close touch since. Mitchell was born at Rock Val ley, la., March 3, 1903. His father also Stephen Mitchell, was i banker-farmer, but not wealthy. A shortage of funds made it neces sary for young Steve to work his way through Creighton Universi ty by sandwiching working years on his father's dairy farm between his years of campus activity. At Georgetown University, where he took his law degree in 1928, he worked part time in the credit department of General Motors Ac ceptance Corp. He stayed with that firm four years after he grad uated. Then he went into Chicago practice. During the war he served as chief of the French Division, Lent 'Leas Administration, and as a State D e p a r t m e n t expert on -French affairs. His wife is the^former Evelyn . Josephine Miller of Waterloo, la. They have three boys. The Family attends-Our Lady of Mt. Carmel R o m a n , Catholic Church in Chicago. The Mitchells live in a rented apartment on Chicago's North Side. They have maintained a small furnished apartment in Washington since March this year when he was appointed counsel ol the House judiciary sub-committee investigating the Department of Justice. Mitchell, who prefers single breated suits and narrow, colorful bow ties, is a cagy conversationalist. The day after his appointment, he told reporters, "I usually say what I think, but things are different now." That was after he was asked if he considered himself a liberal or a conservative Democrat and re , plied: "Those words confuse me." Mitchell, who maintains that his appointment as Democratic national chairman was a surprise, ad' mite he had told Stevenson he was available for any duties which might help in the presidential . campaign. Heads taw Firm He went actively after a political job.himself in the summer of 1947. He wanted to succeed J. Alfred Woll, who resigned as U. S. attorney at Chicago in July of that year. But Mitchell's ambition was .blocked by Arvey, who supported Otto Kerner Jr. for the appointment. Kerner got it. Only a few months later, Mitchell got Arvey into his corner backing Stevenson for Illinois governor. Mitchell has been active in civic enterprises. He headed the Illinois Speakers Bureau for the War Bond Drives; served on the State Medical Center Commission, and was active in the American Vote Council, a group dedicated to getting out the voters on election day. He heads the law firm of Mitchell, Conway and" Bane in Chicago's Board of Trade Building THJB NEW8--KKWPOBT, *.

ELDER CHURCHILL, PRINCE HAD TIFF Lord Randolph's Action, On 1880's Duel Praised LONDON (ffl -- Winston Churchill's father, Lord-Randolph Churchill,, was once challenged to a duel by the Prince of Wales who later became King Edward VH. The incident is related by Sir Shane Leslie, author and godson of Lord Randolph. In an article in the Catholic periodical The Month, Leslie says Lord Randolph's reply to the challenge was "superb -- that of a Christian and chivalrous gentleman." "He sent Lord Falmouth to say lie was prepared to meet anyone deputed, by the prince and fight bim anywhere on the continent, but that nothing would induce him to lift a hand against his future sovereign." Leslie said little to elaborate this latest revelation about the fighting ^hurchills, but apparently the trou- 3le was way back in the 1880s and--like so many similar shindigs --was over a woman. Leslie, attributing his account to some unidentified documents, described the ladyin the case as a countess "equally admired by the irince and Lord Randolph's elder jrother." Rebuked Prince "Lord Randolph's part was purely fraternal and very honorable." Leslie said, "for he had never known or approached the lady himself, but he rebuked the prince in a manner that could be considered injurious as well as insulting." Leslie omitted to say what the rebuke to royal was, or what led to it, or whether a duel took place. The incident is not mentioned in the biography Winston Churchill has written about his father. Another incident in which the Churchill fighting spirit nearly led to a duel was more fully described | in Leslie's article. This time Lord Randolph himself was the challenger, and Lord Hartington the challenged. Lord Randolph had objected to some remarks allegedly made by Lord Hartington, but withdrew the challenge on bemg assured they were not intended to apply to him. The last important duel in Britain \yas fought in 1840, when Lord Cardigan--who afterwards commanded the famous Charge of the Light Brigade in the Crimean War ^-wounded a brother officer. Cardigan was tried by his fellow peers and acquitted on a-legal quibble. John Curtis and his brother, in 1848, cooked up something on their Franklin stove which they called "State of Maine Spruce Gum," the father of chewing gum. wslBsT ~~~ New FAB washes clothes WHITER WITHOUT BLEACHING than any other product wth bleaching!
