May 21, 1961: Henry "Chip" Chafetz has put on the market a book titled "Play the Devil" -- a history of gambling in this country which sets out to prove that the urge to gamble has preserved the essential vitality of the American people and has made them willing not only to take chances on a Daily Double, but also on Alaska, the Far West, the New Frontier and anything else where the odds are as good as filling a straight, including a shot at the real moon.
