GOP cabinet members' wives visit Minnesota and campaign for Nixon. Report includes brief interviews with wives.
Mrs. Ruckelshaus: “It's encouraging to me to that people are willing to ask intelligent questions about an issue the administration is taking a position on and expect that we as the wives of officials in the administration will have an intelligent answer to give. Four years ago I was always asked how many children I had and what it was like to be the wife of a candidate, I was happy to play that role, but it's sort of nice to have it established on a different plane. I don't always know the answer, but at least they expect you to be informed, I think that's an upgrading of the way women are viewed nowadays that we are not just echoes but we do have opinions and we're capable of taking a role. The women talk on Nixon's actions as president. Mrs. David: In the last four years the country has found itself and begun to reverse the terrible trends of crime, drugs, environmental crisis." Women also talk about political cartoons and lampooning.”
