That's an average of better than <HM a month and he has more coming up. For a busy and important man like Achcson, it's ft lot of speechmaktng. But he isn't setting any oratory record for secretaries of state. That still belongs to the ..Boy Orator of the Platte," William Jennings Bryan, for a comparable period of time among modern secretaries. Bryan made -55 major talks, a shade better than two a month, in the 57 months—or two and a quarter years—when ho was secretary of state from March 1913 to June 1915. But Cordel! Hull, who had the job for 12 years, longer Ihnn nny other secretary in American history, undoubtedly made over that period o! time more speeches than any secretary. In his first six years as secretary, Hull made 85 talks, an average of 14 a year. This dwindled in the remaining six years' as this country got info war and Hull had less time for speechmaking. (Some otner secretaries: George C. Marshall, 22 in two years, or little less than one a month; James F. Byrnes 19 in one and a half years, or just a trifle better than one a month.)

"The Typewriter Man" Cardinal Spellman Calls For Special Prayers NEW YORK, June 28. (AP) — Francis Cardinal Spelimcin, Roman Catholic archbishop of New York, has called for special prayers Sunday "for the unfortunate populace Marshall, and Byrnes run even on speechmaking. Those close to Acheson;say he's a lot more effective speaker when he talka off-the-cuff without notes or prepared text. But, they feel, there's a little danger in that for a secretary of state. There's always the chance he may use a word or phrase which will wind up having an effect he never intended, a word or phrase he might not have used if he hud first gone over his talk in writing So, so far, most of his speeches have been carefully prepared, and may be rewritten as much as ten tunes or more. It ail starts this way: ,.'•,. Birth of a Speech A group • or organization which wants Acheson for a speaker, writes to the State Department's Office of Public Affairs, under the direction of Francis Russel. Since Kussel's office gets an average of 65 such requests a month but Achespri averages only one speech a month, he is filling only a fraction, of the requests. It's the job of Russell's office to recommend to Acheson the requests it thinks he should accept. But he makes the final decision. Once he does, the work begins. There were a lot of points and problems Acheson wants to get across to the public. He selects one • of them. The first draft of the speech la drawn up by ireople in Russell's office. They're picked for the job because they're supposed to have showri ability In speechwriting. Specialists in the field to be covered by a talk are called in for help and consultation. For exiim- ple:. If Acheson is going to talk on Russia, Korea, and the Attim- ttc Pact, state department specialist-'! in those lields lend a hand. After he gets: the first draft, Acheson goes over it. Often he rewrites it to suit himself at home nt ! night. Then the Acheson version goes back to the specialists for a final check. With this done and llie speech in final form, the whole thing is submitted to President Truman. And Acheson's aides say Mr. Truman reads every word of Acheson's talks before the latter makes them. This will give an example of the time that may go Into an Acheson speech. He had wanted for a long time to explain clearly, so tlie public would understand It, this country's Attitude toward Russia and what he believes Russia's aims and tactics mean. Work on this was begun last October and, after many reworkings. was finished in the spring of 1950. of Korea, which has ben so brutally assaulted."
