Tonight's panel includes David Niven as a guest panelist, along with Arlene, Dorothy and Bennett Cerf. The panel are blindfolded because the first challengers are the respective heads of the Democrat and Republican parties. Arlene Francis blurts this out on Cerf's time (she does call for a very brief conference)and the two gentlemen are promoting a bi partisan fund raising campaign, the Democrat plan was called, "Dollars for Democrats" where every registered Democrat would contribute a dollar to the party. The second challenger was the partner of last week's contestant - the manufacturer of Hula Hoops and Daly calls time and the panel are stumped. Mystery guests are Jane Wyatt and Robert Young, touting their fifth season of the very popular CBS series, "Father Knows Best" Arlene Francis recognizes Jane Wyatt's voice and masks come off before Robert Young is identified.
