And a few minutes later he was back with his wife, and they asked Prentiss if he wouldn't give them a speech.” “Well, he looked around for a kind of a podium, something to stand on,” he continued, "and then the only thing available was a pile of that stuff that the late Mrs. Truman said it had taken her 35 years to get Harry to call 'fertilizer.'
