The Secretaries Typing Nixon's Tra nscripts Were Locked In
By Art Buchu ald
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 1.308 pages and 200,000 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 them?” 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 happened?”
“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 seared them,”
“We told them that they would he locked in for ti weekend and work eight-hour shifts. The first shift start* typing at midnight on Friday. In the beginning the gir thought it would he a lark, hut, as they started listening to ti topes, some of them went white One girl said to me, Th must bt* the wrong tape. Someone’s cursing on it.’ I told her was the right tape and that the voice they heard was ti President cursing
“She didn’t believe me and thought I was joking so I mac a speech to all the girls.
“I told them they would hear a lot of foul language on ti tap**s, hut these were really cod** words th*- President used ft national security reasons. I instructed them to type in ii ‘expletive deleted’ or an ‘inaudible’ when they heard a bn word. Otherwise th** Russians would bo alii** to break m code.’’
“They accepted that?’’ I asked
