By SANCHE DE GRAMONT New York Herald Tribune News Service WASHINGTON How you ask can an important govern ment official be at the same time little known and much mis understood A case in point is Carper W Buckley whose name will be familiar to few but whose function superinten dent of documents for the Gov ernment Printing Office makes him the recipient of 15000 let ters daily Buckley supervises the vast operation of filling 1500000 mail orders for government publications a year including the Congressional Record This nets the printing office mil lion half of which is profit handed over to the Treasury Department for miscellane o n s undertakings Buckley who sometimes wishes he worked on commission doesnt get a penny more than his sal ary HE HAS NO complaints about the volume of business in what he calls the governments book store Pamphlets such as Infant Care which has sold more copies than Gone With the Wind and Ben Hur com bined are slill immensely pop ular The number of individuals who send for How to Drive a Nail How to Sew On a But ton or How lo Care for a Septic Tank is proof that we still have one toe out of the ma chine age Most letters Buckley receives are matteroffact requests for government documents But there arc many which castigate Ihc superinlcndcnt as one might curse the weatherman for rain or the mailman for delivering all bills on the same day BUCKLEY ALSO IS held to account for the withdrawal of a government publication al though these decisions come only from the sources of the publications The grandfather of doityour self literature a pamphlet en titled Care and Repair of the House released by the De partment of Commerce was withdrawn from circulation in 3955 lo take il out of competition with hovvtodoit books by pri vate publishers Buckleys of fice bore the brunt of the result ing protest He still shudders when he recalls this cryptic but vigorous outcry Why dont you sell the White House to a real estate dealer and put the President in a hotel ANOTHER CRITICISM Buck ley feels is misgufded is that the GPO is a reference library fori the Russian spies The tenor o letters on this subject is Whj do you back up trucks to your loading platforms three times a day fill them with tons of val uable information and car them off to the Russian Em bassy Russian diplomats in Washington arc among Buck leys most assiduous clients but he is not in a position to bai them from the premises Any how all material sold by Ihc GPO is unclassified and avail able lo Ihe public Buckley feels he is the scape goat for criticism which should be directed at government agen cics responsible Pneumonia sets in on serious list LONDON Iff Movie actress Elizabeth Taylor down with pneumonia Saturday and her doctor described
