Not just for the kids, this animated se- ries – the first to air in primetime – tackled such adult topics as infertility and adop- tion. The titular couple even smoked Win- ston cigarettes (their sponsor) during the closing credits for the first two seasons. 4. Premiering in 1965, this espionage dra- ma was the first series to cast an African- American actor in a starring role. 5. This classic family sitcom of the 1970s was the first to have a gay character, and the first to feature the sound of a toilet flush. Answers 1. "I Love Lucy" 2. "Star Trek" 3. "The Flintstones" 4. "I Spy" 5. "All in the Family" TRIVIA CHAIN - On April 27, 1667, blind poet John Milton sells the copyright to his mas- terpiece "Paradise Lost" for a mere 10 pounds. Once printed, the poem was immediately hailed as a masterpiece of the English language. In 1671, he wrote "Paradise Regained," followed by "Sam- son Agonistes." He died in 1674. - On April 24, 1863, the Union army is- sues General Order No. 100, which pro- vided a code of conduct for Federal soldiers and officers when dealing with Confederate prisoners and civilians. It became the standard for international military law. - On April 22, 1915, German forces shock Allied soldiers along the Western front by firing more than 150 tons of le- thal chlorine gas against two French co- lonial divisions. The Germans, perhaps as shocked as the Allies by the devastat- ing effects of the poison gas, failed to take full advantage, and the Allies held most of their positions. - On April 26, 1977, Studio 54, the most famous nightclub in the world, opens its doors. The venue became famous for openly and shamelessly excluding all but the most chic, famous or beautiful patrons. Studio 54's golden era lasted less than three years.
