We st Liberty-Gaye Plunkett, distinction By Dorothy Williams WASHINGTON. D C -It might, rightfully, be concluded that Nick Strittmatter never yearned for a job as an elevator operator However, the    21-year-old Monticello, Iowa.    man reports he had a fascinating summer as an elevator operator in the office buildings of the U.S. senate. The pleasure of his employment was provided by the people he met. Sen. William    Proxmire. Wisconsin Democrat, noticing Nick's six-foot,    four-inch height, correctly guessed the young Iowan played high school basketball. Frequent conversations followed, with the senator expounding on one of his favorite subjects -physical fitness. Nick found Sen. Hubert ll Humphrey, the Minnesota Democrat, "so incredibly friendly -he just jumps at you when you say, ‘hi’.*’ Maryland’s Republican Sen. Charles McC. Mathias is "very much a gentleman." in Nick’s estimation. He’s Interested "He’s very much interested in what you have to say." The dean of the senate -George Aiken. Vermont Republican, habitually got onto the elevator, accompanied by a couple of aides, and stood silently. hands on hips, thoughtfully looking down at the floor. It was the elevator job, arranged by Iowa's junior senator. Democrat Dick Clark, that gave Nick his coveted signed to Nick was that resulting from ( lark’s idea for legislation to provide constituents with toll-free telephone access to their senators and congressmen Notre Dame Senior Nick. who will enter his senior year at Notre Dame university this month, has formed some definite ideas about life here “I sot* now how easy it is to become isolated in Washington.' he said. "I guess they cell it Potomac fever. It is easy to get out of touch with real American life." He praised ('lark for his "sincere effort to get back to Iowa often. “You can sit here and read about the farmer hav ing trouble because of wet weather, but it isn't the same as tramping through the wet fields with him.” Nick also has expressed awe at the "immensity of government. "There arc so many agencies, so many departments, you realize how big this country is and what a big job it is to run it.” He has. however, been simultaneously struck by the "limitations of government. Just One Mode "The government can do just so much toward solving problems. The government is just one mode of bringing about social change; a better equity." Clark is tops with Nick He has been ever since the young Gov. Ray Helps Balloon Championships Monticello man, because of his interest in politics and his tory, joined the senator in 19 on a segment of his campaign walk from Solon to Iowa ('tty Nick later wrote Clark a note, telling the candidate how much he enjoyed the expert once, adding that he would like to work for him sometime in Washington "It was a hot, sticky day but Dick never seemed rushed," Strittmatter said ‘He gave a little Ini of time to everybody and he always seemed to a stay a little longer than I expected.”, Nick’s job in Washington, however, didn't materialize easily He wrote Clark a second note and talked with the senator’s staff members. They had no job for him last year, but in February, he was notified there would be an opening this summer. Legal Profession Nick, son of Ambrose Strittmatter. a Monticello lawyer, also plans to enter the legal profession. As he reflects on his lime in Washington, he suggests one of the most unusual developments -for him -provides a key to ( lark’s personality Arriving for his first day at work. Nick asked the receptionist what he should call Clark. She replied, "Dick.” Nick protested that Clark was a senator; it didn’t sound respectful. The receptionist, however, told him Clark would be offended in Nick addressed him more formally. "So, I called him Dick. I have ever since." Motherwell Mural at U. of I.
