DON MITCHELLL A WINNER ON TV SHOW
Turning in on channel 2 last Thursday afternoon, Mrs. Arthur Edmondson was surprised to see Don Mitchell, son-in-law of Frank Graves, appear on the TV show "Big Payoff."
Don, who is mayor of Eagle Grove, Iowa, a city of 4,200 population, wanted the "Big Payoff" for his wife, Ruby.
Although he didn't win the payoff, he received many prizes of much value. The show is conducted by Randy Merrian and Bess Myerson.
