"The only answer I can Rive," said Porter," is a four-letter word." "We can't print it." warned the newsman, "but I'd like to know what the word is. just to gratify my own curiosity."

He said, please, that he wanted to make it clear that he hadn't spent five days and nights sitting up on a bus to come to Washington to scalp anybody on Capitol Hill.
