those others was a friend of mine New York Times foreign cor respondent Nathaniel Gushing Nash Journalists receive little respect these days They are either hammered by a public that believes the few with a biased agenda represent the whole profes sion or when at their best are taken for granted Nathaniel was unlike most of the rest of us in this business He was first and foremost a modest man in a pro fession that can nourish egotism A Harvard graduate he was such a good tennis player that he might have turned professional had he not felt called to do some thing else It was typical of his life Rather than cen ter on himself Nathaniel constantly explored ways to direct his intellect and energy to benefit others A sign of the esteem in which he was held came in the spontaneous reaction to his death by Times publish er Arthur Sulzberger who said Nathaniel had a sweetness not necessarily the first word that springs to mind when describing a truly effective foreign correspondent that was treasured by all who knew In fact after his initial years as a copy boy at the Times the only newspaper for which he ever worked some wondered if he was tough enough for the rig ors of reporting They neednt have feared During the savingswxMowi scandals of the 1980s Nathaniel covered the Charles Keating trial with insight and skill He wrote about a compli cated subject in a way that even those who have trouble balanc ing their checkbooks could understand Thorough and insightful were two words often used by his editors and colleagues to describe Nathaniels reporting No jour nalist could ask for a higher compliment Nathaniel was a true blue blood but never a snob He belonged to a New England family with Mayflower descendants on both sides He attended upscale pri vate schools in Massachusetts and was a star athlete in high school earning nine varsity letters in basket ball tennis and soccer According to a friend Nathaniel often spent his vacation time doing missionary work for various Christian causes and organizations But he was not a showoff about his faith He once confided to a friend that the way to thrive at The Times was to avoid cyn icism a rule of life that could apply to anyone and any career A former Times reporter McCandlish Phillips led Nathaniel to pursue journalism On hearing death Phillips suggested a major reason wWy Nathaniel was held in such high esteem by all who knew him When he came into a room a gust of good will came right in with Nathaniel leaves a wife Elizabeth who was a missionary when he met her at a Bible study group in New York twin daughters and a son He also leayes many colleagues who admired him greatly and will miss him terribly At the Dover Air Force Base cer emony President Clinton called him a brilliant cor respondent He was right Nathaniel brought honor and distinction to a profession that needs more not less of those commodities His leaving it especially in the prime of his life and career he was only diminishes our work and sad dens our hearts i Those who didnt know Nathaniel Nash missed experiencing one of Gods great creations Those who did know him send him back to his Creator with thanks for a job well done and a life well lived Cal Thomas is a syndicated Vmti PAIRV BWAER EfWlN RR5T VKMCF WD OW Israeli warplanes attack water reservoir By SAM F GHATTAS Associated Press Writer BEIRUT Lebanon
