Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-10,Lethbridge, Alberta ti—Ttw HTHBMOQi HtllAlP-Thiyd«y. Jwiuwy 10.1174 Goldwater: 1964 goat^ 1974 hero SENATOR GOLDWATER By JAMES M. NAUGHTON New York Times Service WASHINGTON — Barry Goldwater, like a Republican I I cloth coat rediscovered in the closet at the end of a fashion] I era, is bacit in style. For a decade. Democrats gleefully scored him; now they I quote him. Republicans tried to forget his political legacy; [ I now they applaud him. The reason is Watergate — and the blunt candor that I devastated Senator Goldwater's campaign for the White 1 House in 1964 seems to many to have become something of a | I national treasure in 1974. The renaissance of the Arizona Republican is real: — I Sen. John G. Tower of Texas, the Conservative chairman of the Senate Republican policy committee, urged President Nixon in October to nominate Goldwater to succeed Spiro T. Agnew as vice-president. —Victor Gold, the Conservative columnist and former aide to both Senator Goldwater and Agnew suggested more recently that the nation take a second look in 1976 at a | [ Goldwater-for-president movement. —Sen Charles Mathias, a^ liberal Republican from I I Maryland, declared that ‘ there is this tremendous thirst for | [truth, and Barry is talking straight." —Mark Shields, a campaign strategist for liberal I Democrats, concluded the other day that Goldwater | “represents the ultimate triumph of character of idology.’ I —Goldwater will appear Sunday on the National Broad-I casting Company's “Meet the Press” program. He was last I appeared on the show a decade ago. —The senator has popped up on the Gallup Poll list of the most admired men in the world, finishing 10th, behind Pope Paul VI.    . Critical of Nixon There is more than mere irony in the transformation of I the goat of the 1964 Republican disaster into a hero of the 1974 Republican trauma. It may be both a cause and a symptom of the president's troubles. ' Asked to explain the reversal, an official in the Nixon adI mmistration said that Goldwater ‘‘is not talking about nuke-1 I ing the enemy any more, he's talking about nike-ing Nixon.” Or, as a departing White House aide put it, “all the I professional Nixon haters rejoice if Barry says something I critical of Nixon.” According to Goldwater’s close associates, he is trying I to help the president — and has been for more than a year — by prodding Nixon to make a full disclosure on Watergate matters, convinced that it will be to his benefit and the only | way to salvage his presidency. The prodding has varied from a private needle — when the senator arrived at the White House for one of Nixon’s "operation candor" meetings with Republican congressmen late last year he gave the president a bottle of Watergate brand bourbon — to uncommonly harsh public criticism of what the senator complained was a Nixon tendency "to dibble and dabble and argue on very nebulous grounds like ex* ecutive privilege and confidentiality when all the American people wanted to know was the truth.” Thus far, however, the senator's frank statements { appear to have had little lasting impact at the White House. In apparent frustration, Goldwater told the Christian Science I Monitor in a widely reprinted interview last month that he had "never known a man to be such a loner in any field” as | Nixon Limited influence {limited influence Gold water's limited influence at. the White House is not I new, and some of his associates believe his bluntness reflects pique at Nixon's lack of attention to the president's I predecessor as the Republican standard-bearer. One Senate colleague, who asked not to be identified, remembered having told Goldwater in 1971 that the White I House no doubt was grateful for a laudatory speech by the I Arizonian. 'Grateful? " the senator reportedly replied. “Right after I the inauguration in 1969, Nixon called and said, ‘you and I want to be very close; I hope you won't find it a burden to ¡come down to the While House every two weeks or so,' | [Christ, I haven't seen him in a year.” When the senator had an opportunity to address Nixon I I directly last November at the “operation candor” meeting, he objected — again using a salty phrase — that supporters of the president had been prepared for months to assist Nixon but the trouble was that he never asked for help until dlf-1 ficulties had developed. Most troublesome, potentially, for the White House is the I assessment of a Refniblican senator. ■'Barry’s not too influential in the Senate because he doesn't spend a lot of time there,” the colleague stated. “But he IS very influential in the Republican party. If he signals a [ move toward impeachment, the herd will stampede."
