Ted is honored when he is asked by a man named Alan Marsh to lend his name to a broadcasters' school he is planning on opening in Minneapolis. Lou allows Ted this honor as long as it is done on Ted's own name, and is not associated with the station. Ted sees the school as being the next step on his road to national fame and fortune, as he can see other "Ted Baxter" schools eventually being opened across the country. Alan ends up doing all the work, with Ted getting all the glory. But Ted also ends up with all the bills as Alan, on the day of the school's gala opening, ends up skipping town, probably with all the tuition collected, which is $300 per student. If he is to do the right thing, Ted could be on the hook for several thousand dollars in the refund of tuition alone. Although Lou stated that Ted was not to use the station's name in the promotion, Mary realizes that the station is nonetheless involved through Ted's name association with it. So Mary comes up with what she believes... Written by Huggo

This show was on such a roll by this time. In this one, Ted is taken in by a con man who says he is creating a broadcast school, where Ted's name will appear. Of course, the night the course is to start, the guy takes off with the money. Ted is devastate and talks the gang into being the faculty. When they arrive at a huge hotel ballroom, there is only one guy there. The staff sits there like they've eaten lemons and snarl as this kid asks all kinds of questions. He refuses to take his money back and insists on continuing in the class. A priceless show.
