$8,700 Prize Makes No
Change in Student's Life

An Inter-Guild meeting will be
held at 2:30 p.m. today in Lane

Having $8700 dropped in his lap
for guessing Jack Dempsey as
"Mr. Hush," hasn't changed the
life of Richard N. Bartholomew,
Grad., who gave the right answer
to Ralph Edwards two years ago.
Since Bartholomew made the
wirdfall in a Hollywood radio
show, he has turned in his Navy
commission, and following his
pre-"Hush" plan, is now working
toward a doctor's degree in chem-
ical engineering here at the Uni-

Ticket and Idea
Back in January 1946, Bar-
tholomew lined up for the now-
Youth Camp

Unitarians Launch
Summer Program
The Unitarian Service Com-
mittee, cooperating with Ameri-
can Unitarian Youth, will launch

famous "Trulh or
show with a USO

ticket in


pocket and the answer to "Mr.
FHush" under his hat.
"I wasn't even fazed when I
won," he said, explaining that he
planned on winning all alon. "It
all just depended on engineering
it right," he said.
Marriage ProposalsI
Following his win, Bartholomt-0w
said he was deluged with letters.
"mostly from crackpots." Some
female writers asked for a share
of the then-scarce nylons, he said,
while others proposed marriage.
The "wackiest" letter of all, he
said, came from a Minnesota wo-
man asking him to buy her some
.$200 worth of flower seeds and
bulbs, which she planned to grow
and pay off the mortgage on her
Fork Over!
Most of the prizes, including a
Mercury car, Bartholomew eit or
sold or gave to his family, who live
in Fayetteville, Ark. The really
heart-breaking part, he said, was
forking over a "sizeable slice" of
the prize money to the income tax
He said he tried to get the in-
ternal revenue department to give
him special consideration because
such unique radio jackpots were-
n't covered by regulations at the
time. "But they made a new
ruling," he said wistfully.
Not Aioard Ship
Another of the prizes was a
year's maid service - which he
traded off for cash. "And there
is nothing to the rumors that I
tried to take her aboard ship with
me," he said flatly.
The best prize of all, Bartholo-
mew said, was the two weeks' va-
cation at Banff, an exclusive re-
sort in the Canadian Rockies. The
Bartholomews made it a honey-
moon trip last summer with
"Truth or Consequences" footing
all the bills.
When asked whether he would
ever try to win another contest,
he said, "I don't think so-one's
enough. At least I'd never go out
of my way to do it." _
