    • Dewey vs. Truman Presidential Election
      When Martin is elected class president, he poses for the school paper with a headline that says "Simpson Defeats Prince." This is a parody of the Chicago Daily Tribune's mistaken 1948 headline predicting Thomas E. Dewey would defeat the incumbent Harry S. Truman. Truman held up the erroneous headline at one of his press conferences for the New York Times to print.
