y Well, conservative Republi-

Democrat Morris Udall, both of c.
whom tried this year for thea
presidency, might not agree on
much, but their youngest chil-f
dren, both Yale freshpersons,
have much more in common, in- he
cluding the belief that Jimmy
{f Carter will win in November.
Ron Reagan and Kate Udall
met for the first time at lunch
in Yale's Davenpor t College'
this month and talked about the
' campaign, their fathers and
.* 'politics -a subject in which
neither is overwhelmingly in-
terested.
"WHAT DID you think about
the idea of living in the White
House?" the deeply tanned
Reagan asked Kate Udall. "I
wasn't going to do it."
"The whole idea was fasci-.
nating," she responded. "I
don't think I'd actually want to

Both are the youngest of large

amoa. Minns, 48, is a former in politics. "Large families
make good backdrops at press
conferences," Reagan said.
NEITHER HAS been plagued
by the press the way some po-
litical children have, but for
different reasons.
"This is actually my first in-

The Udalls are about five'
eps down below the Reagans'
prominence and money."
The youngest of four children,
eagan took off his spring se-
ester in the senior year of
gh school to help work on his
ther's campaign. Although he
ad planned to write a journal,
e wound up as a "go-fer" er-
and boy, working from 6:30
im. until 3 the next morning
very day for months.
"After a day of this you're
ke a zombie."
RARELY consulted on politi-'
al matters, the youngest Rea-
an is nevertheless an occa-{
ional asset to his articulate
ther, he said.
"Every once in a while when
e's typing one of his speeches

I'll look over his shoulder and
cross something out, tighten it
up."
Kate Udall, who is the young-
est of six, was much more re-
moved from the campaigning,
leaving it to her older brothers
and sisters.
"MY BROTHER, he's 19,
used to speak in high school
auditoriums. And they'd ask
for his autograph. They love
him. My sister was upset be-
cause she never got such at-
tention. One time some guy
whistled at her and it made
her day."
Not only did Udall stay in
school during the primary cam-
paigns, she also left for Eu-
rope when school was over and
missed the Democratic Na-

tional Convention.
"It was a real bummer. I
had a choice of flying back or
spending another 1% months in
Europe. I couldn't do both. I'd
buy week-old Times to find out
what was happening. It was pa-
thetic. Then I came back and
found out he had made his
great speech, and I didn't even
get to hear it."
Neither Udall or Reagan
thought the campaign had much
effect on their families - or
on their fathers.
"There was no dramatic
change," said Udall. "He was
concerned about our being pro-
tected from the public. My
mother was a little upset, be-
ing the divorced wife of the
candidate and everything.

When someone drinks too
much and then drives, it's the silence
that kills. Your silence.
It kills your friends, your
relatives, and people you don't even
know. But they're all people you
could save.
If you knew what to say,
maybe you'd be less quiet. Maybe
fewer people would die.
What you should say is, "I'll
drive you home." Or, "Let me call a
cab." Or, "Sleep on my couch
tonight."
Don't hesitate because your
friend may have been drinking only

coffee never made anyone sober.
Maybe it would keep him awake
long enough to have an accident.
But that's about all.
The best way to prevent a
drunk from becoming a dead drunk
is to stop him from driving.
Speak up. Don't let silence be
the last sound he hears.
