* Charles Van Doren quiz show scandal
* Admits to lying and "Twenty One" fix

The top of the front page has a two column heading: "Producer of TV Quiz Says Sponsor Ordered Rigging" with subhead. Lengthy coverage continues inside with a related heading and photo showing a Young Patty Duke.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 60 pages, light foxing along the central fold and right margin, otherwise nice.
