Two stories — one on a homeless family, and one on a politician — take unexpected turns. Season One, Episode 13 of the Lou Grant show, starring Ed Asner. This was a spinoff of the Mary Tyler Moore show.

Half a world away, Americans responded with a massive two-year relief campaign, championed by Herbert Hoover, director of the American Relief Administration.
