The Secretaries Typing Nixon's Transcripts Were Locked In By Art Buchwald WASHINGTON We know a lot about the presidential transcripts now, but we still do not know much as to how they were transcribed. A friend of mine who was at the White House told me the story involved getting out the pages and words in time for the President's speech on Tuesday night. This, according to him, is what happened. "We got the word on Friday that the President had decided to turn over transcripts of the tapes to the house judiciary committee and the call went out for 30 secretaries who could type and listen to tapes at the same time." "Why didn't they ask Rose Mary Woods to transcribe I asked. "She's not very good at using a tape machine. And we didn't want to go through that whole dreary explanation again about why long portions of the tape were erased." "So then what "We set up a room in the bottom of the White House with .tape machines, typewriters, coffee and Danish. "We explained to the girls that they were part of history and what they typed on the weekend could make or break the President of the United States." "Wow, that must of really scared I said. BUCHWALD iAtfkttd In "We told them that they would be locked in for the weekend and work eight-hour shifts. The first shift started typing at midnight on Friday. In the beginning the girls thought it would be a lark, but, as they started listening to the tapes, some of them went white. One girl said to me, 'This must be the wrong tape. Someone's cursing on it.' I told her it was the right tape and that the voice they heard was the President cursing. "She didn't believe me and thought I was joking so I made a speech to all the girls. "1 told them they would hear a lot of foul language on the tapes, but these were really code words the President used for national security reasons. I instructed them to type in an 'expletive deleted' or an 'inaudible' when they heard a bad word. Otherwise the Russians would be able to break our code." "They accepted I asked. JVrolw Huirn "They did at first, but pretty soon it started to gel to them. Several of them broke down and started to cry, so we had to send in new girls every half-hour. The language was too much for them. "By Saturday afternoon, the girls were refusing to type the transcripts and I was starling to worry. Then I gol a brilliant idea if I must say so myself." "What did you "I called up Billy Graham and asked him if he would come right over. He did and I explained the problem to him. lit! un- derstood it right away and said he would help "He gave absolution to all the girls transcribing the tapes.
