    Great find. Mr. Seymour died two months later, his health having failed from the fall he reported on the show. Samuel J. Seymour - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    That's such an amazing piece of history there.

    Just a bit more amazing than how they used to give out cartons of smokes as parting gifts.

    Great find.

    Love the prize for stumping the panel:

    $80 and a $2 carton of Winstons...LOL

    The show was a family favorite back then.. Never missed it.

    That is funny about the parting gifts of "smokes".

    Good find and brought back a lot of memories of "I've got a secret". What a coincidence I'm reading "Killing Lincoln" and the chapters I read last night, just then described the actual shooting.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Cigarettes were given as gift packages to the troops during the Korean War. The companies used their donations as
    advertisements. You almost never saw a photo shot of a GI without a cigarette in his mouth.

    John Cameron Swayze - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia "Swayze was chosen in 1949 to host NBC's first television newscast, the fifteen-minute Camel News Caravan."

    We got most of our Korean War news from film reels shown on Swayze's show. I was just a little too young to understand the gravity of it all.

    "Camel" was a brand of cigarettes. Still is I guess. Camel (cigarette) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Times have certainly changed.

    Even in Viet Nam the “C” rats had a pack of four cigarettes plus a book of matchs.

    They used to give those small sample packs out at every airport before you boarded...LOL..
    That was back when you climbed stairs to get into the plane and it had props.

    Oh yeah, I forgot... You could smoke on the plane..
