IN A NOISY WORLD The Word Was King, a Writer Somebody NEW YORK Hecht, the author, died Saturday at the age of 70, leaving a legacy of millions of words in prinl and on film. An open book and his reading glasses lay beside his body. In a career which started as a cub reporter, Hecht turned out about 70 motion picture scripts, 26 books, 20 plays and hundreds of short slories and magazine arti- cles. He recalled being attracted to lhe profession when "lhe printed word was king, a writer was somebody and a novelist was an awesome sight." That year was 1010 in Chicago and Hecht, the New York-born son of immigrants from southern Russia, was a boy of 16 who had run away from home in Racine, Wis., to make his own way in life. These were the days of the "Chicago school" of American literature and Hecht, the short, stubby breaker of idols, took his place alongside Carl Sand- burg, Sherwood Anderson, Maxwell Bodenheim, Ring Lardner and lhe others. His fabulously successful career embraced almost every form of lhe written word, from newspaper ad- vertisement in support of the Palestine resistance fund to poetry in reply lo Broadway critics who panned one of his plays. At his peak he earned 500 in one day of writing in Hollywood. He once was in such demand in lhe movie industry that he could insist on a clause in his contract forbidding the producer to speak to him. llechl's wife, former news- paperwoman Rose Caylor, found him in a dressing room of their West 67th Strecl aparlmenl, lhe ap- parent victim of a heart at- tack.
