Henry Ford in the event he officially enters thes race for presidency will make no campaign speeches, if a writer in the “Christian Science Monitor” is to be believed.
The only speech ever made by the Detroit auto manufacturer proved a “flivver”, says a writer in the Monitor.
“The warden of Sing Sing Prison, New York”, it is said, “asked him to address the prisoners at a meeting. Mr. Ford demurred, but blushingly consented to take the rostrum embarassed. All he could muster up courage to say was something like this: ‘How are you, boys? I am glad to see so many of you here’ “.
