This was the first television seen in Libby and the audience par ticipation was extemporaneous. The diners were in a gay mood, the ques tions and clever answers made the broadcast a success and a lot of fun. The master of ceremonies delved into the love life and marriage of Harlow Stordock and gave him quite a ribbing. He was so coopéra tive that he got the chance at the $64 question at the close of the dideo This question was the mo tive for quick action and talking all during the broadcast as it w'as promised th^t a prize of five dol i lars would be given for the correct answer. The M. C. flashed a five dollar bill as she asked the ques tion, "Will the Libby Dam oe built?" With the announcement of the army engineer it will be known if Mr. Stordock's answer was cor reel. If he gets the prize he must spend it for something needed at the Masonic Hall. TTie broadcast was a take-off on those to whom the questions were asked and was full| of laughs. Clever answers received a lot of applause. From the banquet the Stars andj their O. E.
