Alexis School 9 s The last surviving soldier of the American Revolutionary War was Daniel F. Bakeman, who died April 5, 1869 at the age of 109. I Republican vice-chairman of the Ervin Senate commit* tee investigating Watergate, he is to thousands of American women a highly appealing summer replacement for the soapy heroes they usually stare at over their ironing boards in the afternoons. He looks like he needs a mother, but he talked to aging Nixon aide John Mitchell like a lecturing father. By now his reputation as a televised committee performer is well known: fair-minded, perceptive, no showboat but one who persistently quests after the bigger, deeper meanings of Watergate, leaving to others the pileup of new pieces in the baffling mosaic of fact and conjecture. HIS HARD thrusts, offered in accents that sound less souther an and more just plain country twang, impress most expert listeners as clear and forceful. A few find Baker unhelpfully "moralistic" in tone, but most feel his "voice of conscience" approach is very valuable. In a party bound to be scratching for sanitized heroes, his star has risen quickly. And key Democrats are adding to its shine. "I wish the Democrats had somebody (for the presidency) as acceptable and as attractive as Baker." Comments another, a recognized leader: the atmiwat could have nc quired the needed bipartisan ftavor whfout him lit the hey Some take onepUon to all this, of course. Among the too to 9M letters he gats a day, he finds a fair quota charging Mm with trying to pull down President Nixon and the GOP. And some thoughtful Democrats are only cautiously generous. "He's still an unshaped per- fort."

AIDES SAY Baker, with his special background as a lawyer, still has trouble adminis* "He's the chief gainer from Watergate* I don't think the committee could have acquired the needed bipartisan flavor without him in the key Republican role* 99 son in presidential terms. Wd really haven't heard from himi yet. We don't know what his big vision of the country is," said another high-ranking Democrat. If Baker has one, he wouldn't be unveiling it in the thick of Watergate. Anyway, the presidential 1 talk strikes him as "remote" today, a thing he doesn't have to deal with seriously and so will not. STILL, HE'S a realist. He told me, as he has others, thaA if a White House bid remains a sober prospect, he'll grapple with it. And if he decides to "go," he'll give his fullest. This is his response to those people who come closest to being sharp critics, who read in his Jow'key style a lack of driving desire and sense of commitment. "Anybody who looks at my three races for the Senate in Tennessee (he lost the first in the Goldwater year of 1964), then won twice in a predominantly Democratic state), is tering the service part of his job. Yet, with Oak Radge in Ms bailiwick, he mastered atomic energy in a flash. And, with smog plaguing his native East Tennessee, he also educated himself about environ* mental matters with a thoroughness that evidently gained the admiration of the expert Sen. Edmund Muskie of Maine. None of this, however, really kept handsome young Howard Henry (now 47) from wider public gaze. After all, he did marry Joy Dkksen, jovial daughter of the late, flamboyant Sen. Everett Dirksen, longtime GOP minority leader. Furthermore, his focus on Tennessee notwithstanding Baker's ambition—wellmark- ed earlier by such decisions as going straight for the U. S. Senate—showed itself in the new forum. Though still a freshman, he dosely challenged veteran Sen. Hugh Scott for the GOP senate lead- try and foal again.

Eclipse is the common state,for most in a body of 100. What counts is what you do and what you are ready for when the light hits you. Baker is not shining simply because the network's glare has suddenly caught that deceptively boyish face. He was ready long before the hearings becameheadlines. listen to appraisals of Baker the workman from some of tne more utan two oozen people I questioned in Tennessee: A former law partner: "He's the most stunningly impressive figure, the moat consummately intelligent man I've ever met... He comprehends probtaiis end speaks to solutions without wasting time. I've worked in Wall Street with the beet, and Baker is without peer." A LIBERAL Democratic editor: "Baker is refreshingly intelligent and his instincts are good. He's the perfect man to lead the Republicans in the Watergate inquiry. His own campaigns are impeccably cleansed of any signs of dirty tricks (he never even speaks ill of his opponents)." A lawyer in Knoxville: "He's an 'above-the-tabte' man —not devious, not a conceal­ er. In fact, he uses the open, candid approach almost as a weapon ... He has an innate.
