But be left the White House this week. The White [louse did not an- nounce Harlow's departure, nor was there any indication Saturday of who his successor will be. Harlow, who was a lobbyist for Procter Gamble, has had a loiig career in congres- sional and governmental cir- cles and was a moderating voice for Nixon with members of the Congress. He had spent eight years on the staff of former President "Dwight D. Eisenhower, start- ing as an administrative assis- tant and finally serving as a deputy assistant for congres- sional affairs. He came aboard at (lie start of the Nixon administration as assistant to the President on Jan. 21, 1959.
