With your host Bud, Collyer brought to you this week by Dristan decongestant tablets, the new three layer tablet for effective relief from cold miseries, sinus congestion and pollen allergies hi panel, I’m glad to be back with you bright and shining tonight. Would you open your envelopes please? For the first time, remove your affidavits and let’s follow along, as I read from this first one I Kent Garring, am an Eagle Scout last fall. I was selected from among Boy Scouts from all parts of the country to take part in an unusual scientific experiment. I have recently returned from a five-month visit to a unique community, although it is only four blocks. Long and three blocks wide. It is heated and powered by atomic energy, it’s streets are all tunnels and it is populated entirely by men. It is the United States Army’s Arctic experimental station called camp century. It is staffed with both army and civilian scientists and is built under the snow of Greenland’s ice cap. Just 800 miles from the North Pole sign Kent. Gary start, our show tonight panel, three Stallwood young men, each one claiming to be Kent, Goering Eagle Scout, and we will begin this first round of questioning tonight with Tom Poston Tom.

efficiency of the Postal Service but also the criminal investigation of such crimes as mail robbery forgery of money orders embezzlement of post office funds and the mailing of bombs poisons extortion letters poison pen letters and other illegal material in February of this year I was called to Washington as the chief postal inspector signed Henry B Montague they gentleman again and this time family all claim as you heard to be Henry B Montague chief postal inspector we will begin this round of questioning with Betty White ready Thank You bud mr.
Montague number one: what is the most serious crime in the post office? Armed robbery of anybody is carrying the mail or personal truck. That is the most serious of anything that can be done number two: what of of the things mailed through the mail? What is the most serious penalty? A most serious offense? Well, this blackmail extortion letter is one of the most serious number three: what is the penalty for blackmail depending upon the extent of the crime, so any any crime against the postal carrying is a federal, offense and tried in federal court number one? Where is your office in Washington on Pennsylvania Avenue between 12th and 13th Street number, two? Who is your direct superior Postmaster, General and number three? What is his phone G Edward, a fat in? Thank you I’ll. Ask number three: can you tell me suppose a man writes a check for which he has no funds. Is there a punishment for this? Not under the postal authorities? There isn’t number two. Do you agree with that? That’S right what if he mails it number two. If he mails it was intent to defraud, then it’s a violation, and what can you do to hanging go to jail? Are you in trouble son number one? What is the punishment for writing a poison pen letter? Well, that all depends again on the the character of the letter and what the threat is poison pen letter is reality, a blackmail letter number one. What was your first job in the post office? I joined as a substitute Club. I see number two who was the former chief postal inspector David H, Stephens mmm-hmm number three: what legal term do you use for the prosecution under federal law, for any of the commitments against depends upon what the crime is: embezzlement, mailing of forbidden material or such as Explosive through the mail mm-hmm, what are some of the other designated areas beside the things that are mentioned, like bombs important? Are there any other important areas? Number three? Well, we’ve mentioned poison-pen letters and bombs mailing of explosive that that’s bombs, mayor Nova, narcotics, Johnny number one who was the very first Postmaster General. That was Benjamin Franklin, but he was Postmaster General. While these united states were still colonies number two: do you agree with that? That’S right number: three: do you agree with that? Yes and his headquarters was in Philadelphia. Oh number, two: when you’re gon na get some pens that work in the post office, we already have them, we have ballpoint pens. Now. Has there ever been a prosecution for a bomb explosion number one again in the air some years ago, up in the far reaches of Vermont? Oddly enough up in Burlington, we came across the bomb in the mail. The prosecution was there, though the case was tried there. That’S it we’ll never know now whether the bomb exploded before or after it was open, but right now, let’s open up our ballots and get ready to mark them. If you will please without consultation, as always, both for number one number, two or number three everybody set time. Are you? Yes, I am but a boom. Did you vote this time? Well, you see they’re, so smart out there. Nobody said a word this time, they’re just confused, I figure they’re, just as confused as I am. I voted for number two because I thought it’s nice to know. You’Re not alone. Did you vote. I voted for number two also because he looked like the type that neither rain nor heat nor sleet nor hail would stop getting through a mail. You know it well Johnny. You got very skilful liars here tonight. Okay, I voted for number one. The only reason I’m going is because of Franklin, I guess huh and your vote Betty. I almost switched to number one on that Vermont story cuz. It sounded like it’s something that he really believed, but number two I have to go with and if he turns out to be a car salesman, fair enough. Let’S see how we make out of their own totalization bit here and if you’re playing along at home of this is, we hope you are each week check yourself a right or wrong now and have the fun with us as we learn which one of these three Gentlemen is the real chief postal inspector? Will the real Henry be Montague? Please stand up well pleasure to have you here, sir. I must say that your two stalwart either side of you flanking. You are well learned about the various facts and figures number one. Would you tell us your real name and what you really do? My name is Charles Everett. I am the Membership Director of the American Institute of men’s and boys well and number three, your real name and what you do. My name is Evan McArthur and I’m conductor and musical director of the Harrisburg symphony and the st
Louis municipal office we made honorary postal inspectors. I think we can see what you can do about that when you get back down to Washington and a score of course has been a real good for you this time, because there were one two three that got you correct, but only one who got it incorrect. So the panel came back real well toward the end there. After a shaky start. That means, of course, only one 250 dollars and that’s the total of it from Dristan. But gentlemen, if you had fun had more than made up to it, because you gave us fun good night to you and good luck. Thank you no panel. That’S about all the time we have.
