Had you ever thought about being a reporter?
No. What made me think of it was it had nothing to do
Had you done any writing? How did you get a job--what was the
job you got?
The Herald Tribune paid--it was just that they paid so
badly--they paid you the large sum of $25.00 a week.
You joined the Herald Tribune in 1936. Do you remember what
June or July. Just as soon as I quit.
But wasn't it unusual that you could just walk in and get a job?
You got a job as a reporter?
The lowest, city room reporter. The most menial stories.
