|Summary||Mr. Prichard was a dazzlingly Bright Young Man when he went to Washington in 1940; he never came to the prominence predicted for him because in 1949 he was convicted of vote fraud for stuffing a ballot box. But he proves a delightful and very acute reminiscer about those heady days beginning when, at age 30, he found himself, as WFB puts it, "in almost daily contact with President Roosevelt." EFP: "The NRA [National Recovery Administration], I think, as one of the [Court] opinions said, was delegation of power run riot. And I think the NRA was largely a failure." WFB: "Mr. Roosevelt called it 'the most important and far-reaching legislation ever enacted by any American President.'" EFP: "Typical puffery.... Presidents can be silly, even the greatest ones."|
