Mothers Day Intruder on Whats My Line Why live TV is better than taped shows: On May 10, 1959, an intruder rushed onto the set of What's My Line. Milton Berle had just been revealed as the mystery guest. The Associated Press reported what occurred: "...a man in the studio audience of 550 left his seat, walked to the stage, and approached the official guest, comedian Milton Berle. The man shook hands with Berle. He then announced "I finally made it on Mothers Day." Without another word, the man walked backstage. Police later identified him as Cornelius McConell, 44, a New York City postal worker. He was sent to Bellevue Hospital for psychiatric examination."

ZIP Codes Invented 1963 American postal addresses used to be the essence of simplicity: street address, city, and state. In 1946 numbers were added to the addresses of large cities to designate delivery zones. For example, an address might include 'Minneapolis 16, Minnesota'--meaning the mail was going to delivery zone #16 in that city. By the early 1960s a more general system was needed. On July 1, 1963 non-mandatory five-digit ZIP codes were announced for the whole country. ZIP is an acronym for 'Zone Improvement Plan.' The numerals in the ZIP codes progressively got larger as the addresses moved westward. ZIP codes became mandatory for second-class and third-class mail in 1967. Robert Moon, an employee of the post office, is considered the father of the ZIP code. He submitted his proposal in 1944 while working as a postal inspector. In 1983, large delivery centres had an additional four digits preceded by a hyphen added to their ZIP codes.

Look Magazine Look was a hugely popular general-interest magazine that focused more on photography than articles. Published in Des Moines, Iowa, it began in February 1937 and was intended to be a monthly periodical. Within weeks, more than a million copies were bought of each issue, and it became a bi-weekly. By 1948 it sold 2.9 million copies per issue. Circulation reached 3.7 million in 1954, and peaked at 7.75 million in 1969. Its advertising revenue peaked in 1966 at $80 million. Of the leading general-interest, large-format magazines, Look had a circulation second only to Life and ahead of The Saturday Evening Post, which closed in 1969, and Collier's, which folded in 1956. Look was published under various company names: Look, Inc. (193745), Cowles Magazines (194665), and Cowles Communications, Inc. (196571). Its New York editorial offices were located in the architecturally distinctive 488 Madison Avenue, dubbed the Look Building, now on the National Register of Historic Places. Beginning in 1963, Norman Rockwell, after closing his career with the Saturday Evening Post, began making illustrations for Look. Look ceased publication with its issue of October 19, 1971, the victim of a $5 million loss in revenues in 1970 (with television cutting deeply into its advertising revenues), a slack economy and rising postal rates. Circulation was still at 6.5 million when it closed.
