Final Jeopardy! Round responses

HEADLINES OF THE LAST 40 YEARS
(Alex: Max, one of those years came to you at the very last moment. Let's see what you wrote down. What are... oh.)
(Max: It's supposed to say--it's not even 5 years--it's supposed to say '69 and '74, but... that's as close as I could get.)
(Alex: As close as you can get, but we can't read it, so, we can't rely on what you're saying. So, you lose the $1,400.)
...
(Alex: Max Corrick was on the right track. "MEN WALK ON THE MOON", that was [*]. "NIXON RESIGNS", [**]. It will cost our champion how much? $14,000, which means he earns $32,000 today. But guess what, folks? He now has $1,004,960. And he gets to play again. See you all next time!)
