The eulogy r- part of which Lindbergh had written himself — was delivered by a young Protestant minister, the Rev. John Tincher.

To promote aviation, he toured 75 cities in what turned out to be one long triumphal parade. Met Anne Later, as a goodwill ambassador to Latin America, Lindbergh met Anne Spencer Morrow, daughter of U.S. ambassador to Mexico, Dwight Morrow. They were married on May 27, 1929. Seeking a measure of solitude, the Lindberghs took asylum in a home built in a secluded section of New Jersey near the village of Hopewell. It was here that tragedy sought out the couple. On March I, 1932, their firstborn, 19-month-old Charles, jr., was kidnaped from his second floor crib. A nation that had cheered Lindy’s triumph five short years before, now found itself caught up in his grief. Lindbergh paid a $50,000 ran-(Continued: Page 3, Col. 6.)

My friends—even oil the liberal side of the Democratic party—don’t seem to want any part of this revenge thing.’ ” Kuykendall had been a strong Nixon supporter through the Watergate scandal and was among the few friends and officials who met with him on the evening of Aug. 8 just before he went on television to announce he would resign Kuykendall said at that time that Nixon “cried like a baby” before leaving tin* room to make the resignation announcement. He said he believes Nixon, who has been maintaining public silence since the resignation, also called some other friends Monday but the former President did not mention any names. “He sounded strong, hut sad, of course,” Kuykendall said. “The conversation, the whole thing is sad. It was a terrible realization for me after we stopped talking that this man a few weeks ago was the most powerful man in the world. It is tragic in the Grecian sense and this episode will also be written about for years to come.” Kuykendall, who is s{lending a week at his family ranch at Cherokee. Texas, said Nixon reached him there alter first trying his Washington office. “My reaction to the call is one of wonder, in a way,” Kuykendall said. “I just wanted to call and tell you I appreciate men like Dan Kuykendall who stood up when the going was tough,” he quoted Nixon as saying as a way of opening the five- minute call from San Clemente. Calif. A special review of Cedar Rapids residences to determine changes in valuation for tax purposes will begin sometime this fall. City Assessor Dale Piersall said he planned to inform the city conference board of details on the residential property review at a meeting Tuesday afternoon. Piersall said the big increase in the market price of some homes in the city has made valuations put on the books just two years ago antiquated. It will mean, of course, that Kuykendall said he asked homes which have appreciated Nixon in a very personal man nor how he was getting along. “lit* said, ‘We’ve got problems with that fellow . . . uh . . ’ “Jaworski?
