Notes and Comment

October 1960
New Yorker;10/29/1960, Vol. 36 Issue 37, p33
The author reflects on the departure of Casey Stengel from New York City and the ongoing conflict between U.S. Senator John F. Kennedy and President Richard Nixon in 1960. He claims that the departure of Stengel has left the citizen of New York to contemplate about the rarity of a public news item that strikes them personally. Meanwhile, the quarrel of Kennedy and Nixon has resulted to a public poll soliciting for a candidate wife's name who could be an effective president later.
