Jack Benny hears that Groucho Marx is giving away $3000 as a prize for You Bet Your Life and wants to win it.  A personal friend of Harry S. Truman, Jack Benny served as Master of Ceremonies for Truman’s Inaugural Ball. When he arrived at the White House for the event, a guard pointed to his violin case and asked, “Mr. Benny, what do you have in there?” As a joke, Jack whispered back, “It’s a Thompson sub-machine gun.” The guard replied, “Oh, that’s a relief. I was afraid it was your violin”.
