nominat ing conventions have become a memory for me The one in Los Angeles which gave us John Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson was No 16 for me The one in Chicago which produced the Richard NixonHenry Cabot Lodge ticket was No 17 Because I reported somewhat at length on the Democratic con clave the week following my re turn I shall be devoting more time and attention in this visit to the GOP gathering There will however be some refer ences to the Los Angeles conven tion for comparison purposes As a matter of fact I think Ill start with a comparison by giving it as my opinion that the one most effective bit of oratory at the two conventions was the nominating speech by Minne sotas Sen Eugene McCarthy He was placing the name of Ad QLDEST BROWN CHURCH ALUM When the Rev Glenn Utterback finished his countdown at Sundays an nual reunion of couples married at the famed shrine near Nashua Mr and Mrs Clifford Isley Cedar Falls were found to have been the longestmarried of any Brown Church alumni pres ent Their wedding date was Aug 28 1919 By interesting coincidence Mrs Isley is a grandniece of John Heald builder of the church She lived her girlhood in the Nashua vicinity Per fect weather and a large attendance marked the 1960 reunion lai Stevenson before the dele gates There are two general ora torical styles demonstrated on the podium of a convention hall by far the most com the one prefaced in a high pitched Ladeez Gentle men Its the flamboyant style in the best political tradition Its best exemplified in almost any southern orator THEN theres the earnest con versational approach perhaps better exemplified in Vice Presi dent Nixon than in Sen Dirksen with his honeyed words and pearshaped practitioner tones The true of this type of speaking seems to be thinking of his hearers as a large number of individuals rather than one vast audience Soft words are the rule but on occasion the speaker using this style raises his volume to emphasize a point But Minnesota Sen McCarthy fell in neither of these two cate gories He had a little of both But it seemed to me that his behavior was more that of an attorney pleading a case before a jury In fact the newspaper reporter sitting next to me made this comment at the con clusion of the McCarthy speech Id like to have him on my side in a lawsuit especially if I had a weak case Effective however as the 300 pairs take vows at church 300 couples reconsecrated their wedding vows in the annual marriage re union at the Little Brown Church in the Vale near here Sunday Along with restatement o the pledge of troth by husband and wife sealed with a kiss there was a bit of counsel from the famed churchs marrying parson the Rev Glenn L Utter back To get the greatest happiness out of marriage which Mr Ut terback referred to as the first humanjnstitution established by God the marrying parson proposed these four steps 1 Know yourself by critical selfanalysis 2 Love each other with Gods kind of love 3 Make a habit of showing your appreciation 4 Cultivate your religious life AT THE RISK of incurring the disapproval of all husbands pres ent the pastor suggested help ing with the dishes at night Thats a lot better place to talk things over and share con fidences than the dinner table he added Be a worshiping family he admonished Have a family prayer Attend church regular ly Dont send your children

had just under 75votes And thats pre cisely the number he had when the session got under that night which saw John F Ken nedy nominated on the first ballot THE OTHER STAR performer was Floridas Gov LeRoy Col lins He was tremendously im pressive in his presentation as permanent chairman and he demonstrated a pronounced talent for presiding over stormy sessions during his three days on the Sports Arena rostrum It was a matter of common remark that the contrast be tween him and the youthful key noter Sen Frank Church of Idaho was decidedly in favor of the Florida governor A com parison with GOP Charlie Hal leek would lead to a like con clusion The Chicago convention had at least four oratorical high spots Both President Eisenhow er and former President Hoover were more effective in their speaking technique than they sometimes are But the ovation which each received was based on something more deepseated than their oratory For a good many years I have been referring to Minne sotas
