|Plot||:||+ Sponsored by: Alka-Seltzer. The program begins with the announcement that, "This program is presented to illustrate perfectly the effectiveness of our democratic school system." Nonetheless, Quiz Kid Joan Bishop, when asked what school she attends, says that she has a private tutor. This is the first appearance on the show of Gerard Darrow, who "died at age 47, a poor man in broken health who had spent a good portion of his final years on welfare." He is quoted (by Studs Terkel) as saying, "I wish it had never happened." "I can't forgive those who exploited me." The first question is, "Spell correctly 4 of the 5 following words." They are (after consulting a dictionary): "esophagus," "hypothesis," "hors d'oeurves," "Allegheny" and "psychology." The program of this date has been researched as being the first show of the series, but internal evidence points to broadcasts before this one. Therefore, the program's date is subject to correction.|
