Acquaintances and contemporaries of the former :hief executive are fading--denying history the facts kept in :heir memories or private pap- rs. This year is unique at the Truman Library in that it sparkles with a string of 25th anniversaries. One of the tasks of the staff is placing in perspective Ihe year 1945 so far as Harry S. Truman was concerned. Meanwhile, six blocks to the south, on the southeast corner of Delaware and Truman, Harry vet's at West Branch, Iowa- Truman's is the only one whose namesake still is alive. Until 1966, Truman often worked 614-day weeks at'the library. "Now he's 86 years old," Brooks said. "He's earned a rest. He's almost completely retired." The last time Mr. and' Mrs. Truman visited the library, Brooks said, was in March, 1909, when President and Mrs. Nixon delivered a White House piano to the former president. Before that, it was July, 1966, Brooks said.
