This clip made possible by the donations from our generous group of "Fuzzketeers" during the January 2012 2" Quad Transfer Fundraiser.

Here's Part 2 of the early edition of The Sunday News on WBBM Channel 2, anchored by Bob Wallace. Also featuring Janet Langhart. Includes:

Bob reading or introducing the following items:

- State Rep. Bernard Epton (GOP-Chicago) proposes changing drunk-driving penalties from the current 7 days in jail to 2 days; a film clip of him speaking about his proposal with an offscreen Harry Porterfield is shown.

- Janet Langhart (first black "weathergirl" for WBBM-TV) with the weather forecast for the next 24 hours, and predicting that March will "go out like a lamb."

- Telephone service disrupted in an industrial area of Skokie due to somebody throwing a flare into a junction box; service was out beginning 10:30pm on the 27th and was not restored until 6:30am; a Northern Illinois Bell spokesperson said the box was almost totally burned out

The Sunday News bumper

Commercial: Enden dandruff shampoo by Helene Curtis (one of the products from that firm advertised on the CBS Network's What's My Line? from 1956 to 1958) - "A Real Dandruff Shampoo"

Commercial: Hertz Rent-a-Car with Don Adams (between the cancellation of Get Smart in 1970 and the start of the short-lived NBC Network series The Partners in Fall 1971) - going through a bank of cars before reaching the one marked 205

Promo for the movie "This Earth Is Mine," with a scene from the film shown, for tonight at 10:30pm on The Best of CBS (with the film title set in Franklin Gothic Extra Condensed) (ending voiceover by ??)

This aired on local Chicago TV on Sunday, March 28th 1971 during the 5:30pm to 6pm timeframe.
