Fun Wires The newspaper that makes all North lowans MASON CITY IOWA WEDNESDAY JUNE 8 1960 neighbors 7c a Copy Paper Consists of TOUT Ona No 2M I Office of I President a busy one A battery of machines help the 20 girls By JANE ROUNDDANCE WASHINGTON Behind the scenes in the home of the Presi dent of the United States is one of the worlds most important offices handling vital docu ments and letters that affect millions of lives and the very course of history itself The preparation of these doc uments along with daytoday letter writing general office procedures and news distribu tion is a job that demands the utmost efficiency and speed from both men and machines Accordingly the White House employs some of the worlds most modern equipment and in novations to process the multi tude of items flowing across its desks While letters are dictated and typed in the routine fashion electric typewriters are the rule rather than the ex ception many new and some times unusual pieces of equip ment are also used AMONG RECENT timesavers is a machine for making extra copies of documents letters charts or other printed or writ ten items in a few seconds saving hours of manual duplica tion The mailroom has a letter opening machine to ease han dling of the thousands of pieces of mail coming in every day but so have a lot of government and business offices Very few however have the one unique item of equipment which the White House owns a fluoroscopic device to inspect packages which arrive in the mail to guard against bombs or any other threat to the Pres idents safety About 20 women rangingfrom 18 years old to middleage make up the corps of stenographers and typists in the White House office wing Each assigned to a special Presidential Assistant or other Aide with six girls in Press Secretary James C Hag ertys office THERE ARE ABOUT 20 other typists and stenographers in the correspondence section in the Executive Office Building next door to the White House Under the direction of t h e chief of the section they handle routine answers to routine let ters always sending a type written personalized individual letter and never a printed or mimeographed form At the other end of the secre tarial spectrum with hardly a dull life is Ann Whitman President Eisenhowers person al secretary Mrs Whitman takes the Chief Executives dictation of letters to world leaders and speeches on crucial issues But apart from this exciting aspect and the hard work long hours and widespread travel that go with it she works just like most oth er bosses secretaries on per sonal pencil sten ographers notebook and type writer Official letters have a more complicated course IN ALL CASES they are drafted by officials in the gov ernment departments involved or by White House aides They dictate to their own secretaries present a draft to the President and he approves it or changes it Then they work up a polished copy bring it orJiave it sent to the President to sign or initial and put it in the mail Official documents such as proclamations or executive or ders follow the same path The number of duplicate copies of these or other items will vary although quite often an extra copy will go to Hagerty who will decide whether it is news worthy If so and if it is not hot enough to require imme diate oral reading to reporters Hagerty will hand it to one of his secretaries to type onto a stencil to be mimeographed for the press Hagertys staff Mrs Whit man and any other personnel accompanying the President out of town on trips ranging from a weekend of golf to a week in Paris bring their own equip ment with them That is Army personnel attending to transpor AFTER MISSILE SHELTER FIRE This airview shows the launching shel ter at McGuire AFB N Y after a nu clear bomb
