announced. Law- To Easy Have you been catching the new quiz show, "Correction Please?" It's presided over by flippant J. C. t$ :Flippen, one of $ t h e f a s t ^smoothest ad lib- bers you e v e h e a r d . H e the way it -goes. Flippen has five || c o n t estants, all selected from the studio a u d ienc« Usually four ar| [service men or A'omen. Each of [them is given ten [ d o l l a r s which to bid on nswering. T h e inner of the bid then has to pick the wrong state- m e n t a m J. C. Flippen 8:30. In I three, two of which are absolutely ·'"orrfft. If hp does so, his money s doubled and he then has a sec* ond chance to point out the error n more detail. If he's right again, us original bid is tripled. Of course the studio audience is tempted to whisper the answer* to each other, and some people can't resist using: such loud tones the contestant himself can hear. too. That's unfair all around, and Flip- lien asks the audience not to prompt. Someone did, though, the other night and the young soldier contestant, said to Flippen, "I heard that." He was a private «nd doubtless could have used the $48 at stake, but he didn't hesitate a second. The audience went wild and Flippen said, "I know my sponsor would want me to give you ;he money just the same, soldier, 'or being such a tcood sport about it." "Correction Please" is on tonight at 8:30 as usual over KMJ and it's a swell show. One of the most entertaining yarns in Hal Burdick's radio career will be told on "Nisht Editor" to, night at 9:00 over KMJ. It's "D Jekyll and Mr. Gas way" and con cerns the mad adventure which an ordinarily modest and unassuming accountant tumbles dur- ng a train-ride. Mr. Gasway's 'Dr. Jekyll" personality, as gay and jiformal a* his real self is shrink- ng and timid, plays a large part in tossing Mr. Gasway into a to . maelstrom of circumstances' from which his normal self finally rescues him. Tomorrow at 12:30 P. M. the Saturday Farm Review presents Fresno County Farm Advisor Nat D. Hudson in a discussion which will he particularly interesting to Central California livestock and dairymen. 580 ON YOUR DIAL
