"Tom" Eliot Broadcasts on "No Politics" Quiz Program

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Harvard's own Congressman, Thomas H. Eliot '28, proved to be the star performer when he appeared on CBS's Saturday afternoon quiz program, "No Politics," along with three other members of the House of Representatives.

Eliot had no trouble in identifying "What is so rare as a day in June" as the first line of Lowell's "Vision of Sir Launfal." "I ought to know that," said Eliot, "Lowell lived right down my street. In fact, I was the first to recognize his true genius.''

Eliot proved infallible on the question of who played whom on baseball's opening day, and "Speaker" Ernest Lindley said, "I don't know what this world is coming to when the grandson of one of the Presidents of Harvard and a graduate himself knows so much about movies and baseball."
