Driftwood: "Now this is Benson Fox from Leslie, Arkansas, and he's been very good--he and Uncle Mac, too, to help me get up this program. Benson was raised, oh, way back in the hills, wasn't you, Benson?" Fox: "Yeah, yeah." Driftwood: "How far back?" Fox: "Oh, about seventeen mile, I guess." Driftwood: "Seventeen miles back in the country. And, if you've been reading The Stone County Leader, you've been reading some articles that some of you said Jim Driftwood wrote. He didn't do it. Benson Fox wrote in the paper under the name of Doc Dudley. Thank you, Benson."
