Truman Gives
Answer To
Philly Lawyer*
PHILADELPHIA l /Ft Former
President Harry S. Truman, with
pen in hand and tongue ih cheek,
said today he isn't sure whether
he got paid for a full day last
Jan. 20—when he turned over his
office at noon to President Eisen
hower.
The former Chief Executive’s
latest excursion down the byways
of the public post involves a
“Philadelphia lawyer” and a „hird
person to be known only as “Con
stant Reader.”,
The “Philadelphia kwyer” is a
columnist for the Philadelphia Bul
letin. Under that byline—his actual
name is cloaked in literary ano
nymity—he discusses and answers
legal questions submitted by his
readers.
Recently the “Philadelphia law
yer” received a letter in which
“Contant Reader” wrote:
“According to the Constitution,
President Truman’s term ended at
noon on Jan 20 and he went off
the U. S. payroll then. President
Eisenhower’s term commenced in
the middle of the day and he went
©n the payroll as soon as he took
the oath of office.
“With the President’s salary at
SIOO,OOO a year, a day’s pay or
even a half day’s pay, amounts
to a considerable sum. Now, which
one of the two got paid for Jan. 20.
or were both paid for the day? Or
did Truman get paid for half the
day and Eisenhower for the other

an ou me who got
what?” 0
ou t a P u *? ler ” commented the
Philadelphia lawyer in today’s
column.
Fast calculation, he added, re
veals that the President of the
E-r^ S '/v S * paid at tile daily rate of
(before taxes, of course)—so
that if either the outgoing Chief
Executive or his successor was
paid for the full day, he was over
compensated in the amount of $137.
The Bulletin columnist .decided
there were only two men complete
ly competent to provide titg|||g
swer. One, he realized, was Tar
too busy taking up the reins of
government, so he wrote to the
“First Citizen of Independence,
Mo.” and put the problem squarely
in his lap.
In due course, there arrived a
letter dated Feb. 11 and bearing
this letterhead:
“Harry S. Truman, Federal Re
serve Bank Building, Kansas City
6, Missouri.”
“Dear Philadelphia kwyer,” Mr,
Truman wrote:
“In reply to yours of January
twenty-eighth, I am not able to
answer your question.
“It looks to me like a ‘Philadel
phia lawyer’ ought to be to
figure it out. It is more than I can
do because I ha/e never had an
occasion to do it. I merely ac
cepted the check the secretary of
the Treasury sent me, hoping the
government would remain solvent
long enough for me to cash it.
“Sincerely yours,
“Harry S. Truman.”

quietly “gumshoed” as he said
around Key West, picking up ru
mors and clues as to the possible
thieves. It was after this tqur that
he called Miami headquarters and
asked them to alert Cuban offi
cials immediately.
The theft of the Ramos was the
first of its kind recorded here re
cently. Owner Frantz said that the
apprehension of the thieves will
be a warning to a;i potential ones
that the infant shrimp industry is
protected by the full strength of

the street and go into the Mardi
Gras Club. The city manager said
, that he waited about three min

“The eity must prove these
charges beyood a reasonable

The Citizen that be thought the

well. Le Concho has been hav

The poll shows conclusively that
though the season started later
than the usual January 15, it has
picked up a tremendous momen
tum and will probably last longer
than usual. Restaurants, beach
clubs, and beaches are crowded.
And just five minutes in the traf
