Example text

We covered the exploits of this vivid and zestful man for twenty years. Page 3 In the Back Seat on Election Eve 'Twas the night before election day, and Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller had only a few hours to go. Earlier in the day, a Rockefeller campaign manager called our station from Albany with a request, because WVOX was the first radio station in New York State to endorse Rockefeller for a third term. The caller from Albany, figuring the election might be won or lost in the suburbs, wanted to know if the radio station could clear some time on election day for last-minute messages from Nelson Rockefeller to his neighbors.

The moral of this little mythical confrontation at your breakfast table is that everybody wants Rockefeller to "save" us from someone. But now our governor has ended the sanitation workers' strike, and he has this big trouble with the newspapers and the political commentators. Over the weekend, he was raked through the presses of the Daily News and the New York Times. John V. Lindsay, the Mayor of New York, is "responsive" to the press, as our colleagues like to put it. He schmoozes with Jerome Wilson and Ralph Penza of CBS, with Gabe Pressman of NBC, and with Johnny Parsons of ABC.

Until nine o'clock tonight. 5. November Page 8 The Governor and the Garbage Suppose you had four political commentators sitting at your breakfast table this morning, and suppose each of them professed a passing interest in national politics. Chances are, each of the four would want Governor Nelson Rockefeller to "save" us from someone or something. One might hope Rockefeller would "save" us from Ronald Reagan. The second might want the man from Pocantico Hills to "save" us from the man from Texas: Lyndon Johnson.
