1975 Rose Bowl Here are edited portions of Southern Cal's game-winning drive against Ohio State in the 1975 Rose Bowl game. Ohio State was leading 17-10 late in the game. After an Ohio State field goal, Southern Cal drove the ball 84 yards for a touchdown, gambled on a two-point conversion, made it, and held on for a dramatic 18-17 win. I fondly recall this game as it was the first Rose Bowl I ever watched.

1913 Advice for Husbands and Wives Two helpul advice books for British married couples, Don'ts For Wives and Don'ts For Husbands, published in 1913, are experiencing a renaissance in sales today. Here are some of the timeless pointers contained on their pages: FOR HUSBANDS: DON'T try to "drive" your wife. You will be much more successful if you "lead" her. DONíT scoff if your wife wants to drive the car. DONíT keep up the ďpoor little womanĒ pose too long. A woman may like to be a plaything for a little while but the novelty soon wears off. DONíT rush out of the house in such a hurry that you havenít time to kiss your wife goodbye. She will grieve over the omission all day. DONíT dwell on the beauty of other women if you know your wife to be sensitive on the point. There is no sense in rubbing sores, although some men seem to find a strange pleasure in it. DONíT spend night after night at your club, leaving your wife alone to count the hours until your return. DONíT forget to buy your wife a pair of gloves occasionally. She will always be pleased to have them. FOR WIVES: DONíT think your husband not ďmanlyĒ because he happens to be short and thin and not very strong. Manliness is not a pure physical quality. DONíT moralize by way of winning back the love that seems to be waning. Make yourself extra charming and arrange delicious dinners which include all your husbandís favorite dishes. DONíT expect your husband to be an angel. You would get very tired of him if he were. DONíT try to dictate to your husband on any subject. He wonít stand for it and there will be trouble. DONíT nauseate your husband with talking ďbabyĒ all the time. As babyís father, he will stand a good deal of it, but remember there are other interests in the world. DONíT be jealous of your husbandís bachelor friends. Let him camp out with them for an occasional weekend if he wants to. He will come back all the fresher and full of appreciation for his home. DONíT say, ďI told you soĒ to your husband, however much you feel tempted to. It does no good and he will be grateful to you for not saying it. DONíT let breakfast be a ďsnatchĒ meal. Your husband often does the best part of his dayís work on it and the engine canít work if you donít stoke it properly.

Brampton Centennial HS School Shooting - 1975 The first school shooting in Canada in 73 years occurred on Wednesday, May 28, 1975 at Centennial High School in Brampton, Ontario. Just before noon, 16-year-old Michael Slobodian walked onto the campus with two high-powered hunting rifles and at least two ammunition belts. He killed John Slinger, a 17-year-old student, and Margaret Wright, a teacher in the English and art departments. Slobodian wounded 13 others before taking his own life with one of the firearms. ďIt was a beautiful spring day,Ē recalled Lorna (Matthews) McClusky, a Grade 10 student at the time. She walked into a hallway and heard what sounded like fire crackers. Then a girl who had been grazed by a bullet encountered her and yelled, ďThereís someone shooting at people out there!Ē She and others quickly retreated to a nearby classroom. They remained there, hidden, until police gave the all clear to leave. She still remembers hearing wounded students moaning and calling out for help. That morning, 14-year-old Pam (Read) Hand was headed to her locker across from the first-floor boys' washroom. In one of those washroom stalls, Slobodian was loading his rifles to begin his deadly shooting spree. Hand remembers stopping in the cafeteria just long enough to greet a friend and take a bite of her donut. Meanwhile, in that washroom across from room 112, Slobodian had already fatally shot Slinger. The young victim managed to stagger into the hallway, where he collapsed and died. Nineteen-year-old Michael Gibeault was also in the washroom at the time. He was shot three times in the stomach and once in the arm at close range. He was able to stumble out before collapsing. Critically wounded, he would survive. Slobodian then opened fire on another boy as he made his way into the hallway, firing randomly at students in that section of the building. He walked around the corner to an art room, where he shot Mrs. Wright and another student. A note police found in his home indicated Slobodian planned to kill Wright, science teacher Ross Bronson, and anyone who got in his way. It is unclear what the teachers had done to trigger such hostility. The school was reopened shortly afterwards and the students were urged not to dwell on the tragedy. According to a news report on the 37th anniversary of the shooting, a movement is afoot to erect a permanent memorial to the two victims killed by Slobodian.

Diffrent Strokes dad Conrad Bain Passes Age 89 Conrad Bain, the actor who played the father figure on the sitcom "Diff'rent Strokes," has died, a source close to the Bain family. Bain died Monday night in Livermore, Calif., at the age of 89. His cause of death was unclear, but his daughter Jennifer told TMZ. Bain's death leaves only one surviving member from his "Diff'rent Strokes" TV family. Dana Plato, who played his daughter Kimberly, died in 1999 of a drug overdose. Gary Coleman, who played adopted son Arnold Jackson, died in 2010 after a fall down a flight of stairs in his home. Only Todd Bridges, who played his adopted son Willis Jackson, remains.

Sammy Davis Jr on Whats My Line - 1957 This is Sammy Davis Jr.'s appearance on What's My Line from May 26, 1957. He was recruited to be the mystery challenger only a few hours before the live broadcast was to be aired. Moderator John Daly had earlier learned that Mike Wallace was going to be the mystery guest. Daly held Wallace in very low esteem because of a series of sleazy interviews he had conducted on ABC. Daly refused to do the show if Wallace was going to be the mystery challenger. Davis was brought in to ensure Daly would host that night's show as scheduled. Wallace never did appear on WML--and nobody would have known anything about it if Dorothy Kilgallen hadn't written a newspaper story about the episode. The article strained Daly's relationship with Kilgallen for quite a while.

Mercury Dimes The coin commonly referred to as the "Mercury dime" was a ten-cent coin struck by the United States Mint from 1916 to 1945. It is one of the great misnomers in numismatic history. Designed by Adolph Weinman, it is properly called the Winged Liberty dime, as the face depicts a female Liberty figure rather than the male god Mercury. It gained its wrong but commonly used name as the obverse depiction of a young Liberty, identifiable by her winged Phrygian cap, was confused with the Roman god Mercury. Weinman is believed to have used Elsie Stevens, the wife of lawyer and poet Wallace Stevens, as a model. The coin's reverse depicts a fasces, symbolizing unity and strength, and an olive branch, signifying peace. The value of each Mercury dime is more than $2 because of the current price of silver. The Roosevelt dime replaced it in 1946.

Valour Road - Victoria Cross The Victoria Cross is the most difficult military medal in the world to win. A recipient must be a member of the military of a British Commonwealth country and must perform an extraordinary feat of valour in the presence of the enemy. The feat also has to be witnessed. The circumstances surrounding the feats of all potential receipients are thoroughly investigated before the award can be given. Since 1856 there have been 94 Canadians who have won the VC. Against all odds, three recipients from the First World War all lived on Pine Street in Winnipeg. This Canadian Heritage Minute gives a hint of what they did.

Joseph Kaeble - VC Winner Earlier I posted the brief Heritage Minute clip about the three Victoria Cross winners who all lived on Pine Street in Winnipeg. This is the story of another VC winner: 26-year-old Corporal Joseph Kaeble, who single-handedly repelled a German breakthrough on the Western Front in June 1918. Lake most VC winners, Corporal Kaeble got his medal posthumously.

Jim Stafford - My Girl Bill From 1974, Jim Stafford gives a live performance of his quirky song My Girl Bill on British TV. This song actually got to number 12 on the US charts and number seven in Canada. From my experience listening to oldies stations, it's rarely heard nowadays. When My Girl Bill was first released, some radio stations banned it for promoting homosexuality. It doesn't, of course, as the last stanza explains.
