COW PALACE. San Fnnclsco
if And 10 the 28th Republican
Convention passes Into history.
It will go into the record books,
in all probability, as an accurate
svmbol of this era in America.
The major problems of only a
short time ago war, hot and cold,
and the nation'i economic health
are so much less compelling to
day that they could not be re
flected as hotly-fought "issues" at
the convention.
And Dwight D. Eisenhower, who
symbolizes the "age of modera
tion" for so many people, was
available, along with the man he
personally wanted, Richard Mil
house Nixon.
So there were no surprises.
It often seemed like a quiet New
Year's Kve at the country rlub.
People put on piper caps and ca
voted at the proper time. But
there were no fights, no broken
windows, and nobody dove Into the
swimming pool with his clothes
on except, possibly, Harold SUs
sen. ' ,

'Occasionally, it was like a Hol
lywood premier. Huge . crowds
massed in the streets, waiting for
a glimpse of the President and his
lady. An? those roars of applause
from .he street crowds were gen
uine, true expressions of feeling,
not summoned up on cue from a
master of ceremonies.
A woman, on tiptoe and craning,
said, "I came here all the way
from Vancouver hoping to see
him. I think he's wonderful. . ."
The woman next to her mur
mured, "His eyes are bluer than
I thought.
"Seems Silly"
A man said, "Well, four years
ago, I wasn't so sure about hav
ing a military man in the White
House. . .sure seems silly now. . ."
Yet, for politicians, the man
with the greatest comment-appeal
here today is not the President.
It is Richard Nixon.
The boys fell over each other

tives to describe him in their nom

Party ... an ambassador ... a

Stock Role of
Bankers Said
On Increase
SEATTLE A New York
Stock Exchange officer told a
srnun nf hankers here Wednesday
night they will have to play an
Increasingly important role in f
meeting the public's rapidly grow-!
Ing appetite for stocks.
"The
nature of competition is ;
forcinc
bankers - everywhere to
broaden their services and han
die a wider range of investment
problems." Ruddick C. Lawrence,
vice president of the Stock Ex
change, declared in a speech lor
the Pacific Coast Banking School
at the University of Washington.
"You will, accordingly, be un
der increasing pressure to exam
ine every phase of your client's
investment life. Indeed, he will
demand this attention. If you will
not discuss stocks and bonds with
him, your competition will!"
The vice president, who directs
the Stock Exchange public rela
tions and market development
programs, described the increas
ing public participation in share
ownership as a 1 healthy economic
development comparable" to mass
participation in political life.
Describing the broad public par
ticipation in share ownership as
"an economc revolution," the
University of Washington gradu
ate declared: :'
"We are absolutely convinced
that broader share ownership is
the answer to the nation' and
, the West's need for growth mon
ey, and the individual's need to
share In a bright tomorrow."
In the face of inflation, he said,
stock Investments have given peo
ple a means "to protect their cap
ital from eroding in the face of
rising prices."
