Goldwater Is Being Pushed By Housewife By BASIL C. RAFFETY OMAHA, Neb. (AP)-Mrs. Truman Wood has a husband, three children, two telephones, an aging car, a newly seeded lawn and a political gold mine. She does her own housework sometimes with a lift from her children, the oldest of whom is Robin, 9, and tries to keep the newly seeded lawn wet down. But she has given up bridge, interior decorating and the Junior League Mrs. Wood, a trim, vivacious blue-eyed blonde of 35 and a sixth-generation Omahan, is one of the originators and the prime mover in what she calls an astonishingly simple do-it-yourself campaign to make Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona the 1964 Republican presidential nominee. It is incorporated as "Gold for Goldwater of Nebraska," and its registered office is 5410 Seward Street, Omaha, the Wood home. The campaign currently is yielding between $2,000 and $2,500 per week "and I really believe we haven't even scratched the sur face," said Mrs. Wood, whose husband is a sales executive for an oil refinery. Contributions to the campaign, which already has enlisted about 1,400 persons in 32 states, are largely in the form of postdated checks from $10 up. They are placed in escrow in the United States National Bank of Omaha under an agreement which provides they will be turned over to the corporation for use if Goldwater is nominated, but will be burned by the bank if he is not. So far these checks total about $12,000. Mrs. Wood says the dollar value of the contributions is "completely secondary" to the number of people the money represents. "People who give money now are committing themselves as workers," she said. It is her ambition to see Goldwater go into the national convention next year with a broad enough base of support to protect him from compromises hatched in smoke-filled rooms. Mrs. Wood, daughter of former Republican congressman Howard Buffett of Omaha, lived in Washington for six years as a girl. But so far as politics was concerned, "I was a complete dodo — that's my nickname, — Dodo," she said. It was not until she attended the 1952 Republican National Con- 1-2-3 Shift PRINTED PATTERN Golesburg Register-Moil, Golesburg, III.
