HVi— Crmrrruch. Justice Jackson 'brings up the question ot ghost-writers aealn. Here was the supreme court droning, tlmmgll a batcli of dull Monday cases. It reached one about a lawyer accuser! of having had a hand in writing a maga/ine piece whirli bore another man's name but was tn support of the lawyer's client, i — Suddenly Justice Jarksnn. who's bern around a Inny time i.i Washington where you hear a lot about ghost writers, teed off: "Ghosi writing has debused the intellectual currency In circulation here (Washington.) and is a type of counterfeiting which invites no defense." No defense? Busy President Truman probably would be among the first to defend il. So would President Roosevelf, if he uere alive. It was Just coincidence, but while Justice Jackson was delivering his opinion oC ghost-writing, another WnshA.gtnn story was breaking: Clark Clifford, one of Mr. Truman's most trusted While House aides, was leaviiig to go into private business to make more money. Clifford has been .scrvlne as Mr. Truman's !e<ml counsel and al,«o as a gho?t writer, fn fact. as ghost writer for Mr. Truman. Clifford had succeeded Judge Samuel Rose.nm:in and some others -Aho hn-1 dune ghost \vnline for Mr. Roosevelt. O li o st Writing S ;i v?s T i in e The itory of presidential ghust writing under Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. .Tiinimi goes like this: j When they hart to make a speech — say on Inuor — the government agency most expert on the subject (m this case ihe Labor Department) would dig »p the necessary facts anri background This would go into the grhosl- \vriting mill at the White where a number of aides would take a whack at putting the speech together. When all the pieces were fitted together—with maybe a last going over by Rosenman or Clifford' maybe the whole job by them—the, finished product went to the President. Then — the President, whether Mr. Truman or- Mr. Roosevelt, would go over what the ghosts had written, make what changes ho thought necessary, put In some touches of • his own. or maybe even re-write the whole thing. Bui. anyway, the spadework on the speech was usually done by "lie ghosis whose names were never mentioned. Come to think of it, it would seem odd if Mr, Truman got up to make a speech anri, to avoid (he "counterfeiting" Inbel put on ghostly work by Justice Jack.son, made his speech this ,wny: *'M£ fellow American*: The speech I'm about to deliver has been pnt together by Joe Jones, " file clerk in the Labor Department Ch ' ~ Other Reasons are Given for Leap fn Price of Braziilian Coffee Bean Truman Faces Prospect of Losing Aide WASHINGTON.
