Nov. 1, 1959: Orson Welles says he turned down an offer to pose as a genius on a TV quiz show, explaining that he knew nothing about baseball and would miss all such questions. A producer told him: “We're not going to ask you any questions you don't know.”

Art Buchwald interviews Alfred Hitchcock in Paris and the director has quite a few clever things to say … USC beats Cal and UCLA loses to the Huskies.
