Practical Jokes, Army Signal Corps Oscillator Buzzbomb
Salute to most creative criminals of the week:
Chaarleston W. Virginia - man cons women out of their hair
Stink Bombs set off in joke shop
Shep tells a story about being in the signal corps radar outfit, the equipment they used and all about setting it up and testing it. They begin to power it up, a process involving more that flipping a switch, each man carefully watching the settings on his part of the equipment. As they get this unit almost up to max power, Gassor suddenly says he smell something. This is followed by a high pitched squeal that fills the air when suddenly - BOOOM! Everyone heads for the trees taking cover. When it's all over they find that someone had rigged it with a buzz bomb.
This is a rerun of the 9-22-69 show, which was also repeated 1-21-71
