Episode 6/4/52 pre-empted: Betty Garde, local TV actress was injured when the taxi in which she was riding was involved
in a collision with another car. As a result "Ellery Queen" scheduled for that night, in which she had the female lead
was canceled and the entire cast paid off.
Norman and Irving Pincus used a kine of an earlier stanza in the 9-9:30 p.m. slot, via ABC which meant a second payment
to members of that cast as well.
Miss Garde was resting in a New York hospital with a split lip, banged nose and possible concussion. Her role was to
be rescheduled for July.
