Chamber of Commerce Convention in the same huge Statler ballroom which wns packed lor the occasion. A few paragraphs of what he said were okayed later by the State Department for attribution, but not direct quotation. Some working reporters here reason that If something can be said before hotel waiters and busboys. surely it, t s not loo confidential lor the public at large. Off-Record Talks Frequent At almost every large baii^iel which the president now attends, the feature or the evening Is an extemporaneous and often otf-lhe- record speech. 'He made such speeches recently to the Gridiron Club, the Radio Correspondents Association, and the White H.iuse News Photographers Organization. This device permits him to speak with more freedom that he could if his remarks all were to be taken down for full publication. But use of the same device produces R paradox and raises the question of Just how confidential can a speech be when it is made to an audience of several hundred persons. If a working reporter violates an off-record confidence, the speaker often protests to the reporter's employer. Often the confldence- brenker Is disciplined by being denied access to further off-record material But i public official like the president or the secretary of state has no control whatever over a quasi-public audience like the Chamber of Commerce convention or the ASNE banquet. Since the president spoke to the editors, the gist of what he Jjad to say. confidentially has become common, but imprinted knowledge in Washington- There was nothing to prevent his w-orld.s being cabled to any foreign nation. But without violating journalism's unwritten law of respect for off-the-record material, the American public cannot be told what he said. and his wife took up residence ,,. he university president's home on Mornlngside Heights alter bidding mewcll to the Army yesterday at "•l Myer, - Va.
