  1. In September 1946 My mother Janie Nash from Custer, Michigan wrote to the program and requested some gifts for us 5 kids Christmas. She sent a five dollar bill and they read it on thanksgiving day. They sent the five dollars back and sent me, the oldest an electric train set, the next three kids a large doll and the youngest a rocking horse. I still have all the letters of correspondence and also the train although it has had a lot of use through the years. I remember the show well as I was 13 yrs old,
