This sitcom was named after the first mate on a private cruise that should have lasted only three hours. 2. The latter of these buddies would say "Hello" upon barging in on the sitcom's tit- ular gal pals just as they mentioned some- thing dreadful. 3. Barging in was the only way this "hipster doofus" would enter the apartment of his comedian neighbor, for whom the sitcom was named. 4. Although completely earnest, this small- town deputy was such a goof the sheriff would only let him carry one bullet – if any. 5. This second-cousin of a mountain man who struck oil and moved to California parlayed his sixth-grade education into careers as a movie producer and a double- naught spy. Answers 1. "Gilligan's Island" 2. Lenny and Squiggy 3. Kramer 4. Barney Fife 5. Jethro Bodine TRIVIA CHAIN - On May 10, 1749, the 10th and final volume of Henry Fielding's novel "Tom Jones" is printed. The serialized novel told the humorous story of the attempts of the illegitimate but charming Tom Jones to win his neighbor's daughter. - On May 5, 1904, Boston Red Sox pitch- er Cy Young (born Denton True Young) throws a perfect game against the De- troit Tigers. It was the first perfect game of the modern era; the last had been thrown by John Montgomery Ward in 1880. It was the second of three no-hit- ters that Young would throw, and the only perfect game. - On May 9, 1926, according to their claims, polar explorer Richard E. Byrd and co-pilot Floyd Bennett fly over the North Pole in a triple-engine Fokker monoplane, the Josephine Ford. How- ever, the discovery in 1996 of the diary that Byrd kept seemed to suggest that he and Bennett may have turned back 150 miles short of the pole because of an oil leak. - On May 6, 1940, John Steinbeck is awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his novel "The Grapes of Wrath." The book traces the fictional Joad family of Oklahoma as they lose their family farm and move to California in search of a better life. MOMENTS IN TIME PUZZLE PAGES By Dan Rice
