Harry S. Truman speaking:
0:00 That fence was put up for the purpose of protecting the property. Herbert Hoover told me the souvenir hunters took the door knobs off his house. I don’t like that fence. Souvenir hunters aren’t real Americans; they just want to accumulate stuff and throw them away.
The Secret Service put an iron fence around the property (Truman home). One lady pulled in when the gate was left open and began pulling up Mrs. Truman’s white tulips. When the guard questioned her, she said Mrs. Truman wouldn’t mind if she took some tulips.
