W.W. II Lockheed P-38 Ad Here’s one of many examples of our country's ‘hometown’ moral support ads during WWII. This one features a Lockheed P-38 Lightning. This ad appeared in Life Magazine and Popular Mechanics in 1942. Go get’em Maj. Richard Bong! (Richard Ira Bong was America's all-time Ace of Aces, downing 40 enemy planes in the Pacific theater of the war while flying P-38 fighter planes. Bong was killed August 6, 1945, the day the Enola Gay dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, when the P-80 Shooting Star he was testing for Lockheed stalled and crashed on take-off.)

Last Female WWI veteran dies Florence Patterson Green never saw the front line. Her war was spent serving food, not dodging bullets. But Green, who died on February 4, 2012, aged 110, was the last known surviving veteran of World War I. She was serving with the Women's Royal Air Force as a waitress at an air base in eastern England when the guns fell silent on November 11, 1918. It was not until 2010 that she was officially recognized as a veteran after a researcher found her service record in Britain's National Archives. Green died Saturday at the Briar House Care Home in King's Lynn, eastern England, two weeks before her 111th birthday, the home said. Retired Air Vice-Marshal Peter Dye, director-general of the RAF Museum, said it was fitting that the last survivor of the first global war was someone who had served on the home front. "In a way, that the last veteran should be a lady and someone who served on the home front is something that reminds me that warfare is not confined to the trenches," Dye said. "It reminds us of the Great War, and all warfare since then has been something that involved everyone. It's a collective experience ... Sadly, whether you are in New York, in London, or in Kandahar, warfare touches all of our lives." She was born Florence Beatrice Patterson in London on February 19, 1901, and joined the newly formed Women's Royal Air Force in September 1918 at the age of 17. The service trained women to work as mechanics, drivers and in other jobs to free men for front-line duty. Green went to work as a steward in the officers' mess, first at the Narborough airdrome and then at RAF Marham in eastern England, and was serving there when the war ended. The photo below was taken in February 2010 at a celebration of Florence's 109th birthday.

Mike Wallace Whats My Line Controversy - 1957 On the May 26, 1957 episode of the popular panel show What's My Line?, Sammy Davis, Jr. was a last-minute mystery guest substitution for Mike Wallace. More than 20 years later, in his 1978 book about WML, executive producer Gil Fates explained what happened that night: WML panel moderator John Daly and Mike Wallace had professional differences that stemmed from the fact that they were both newsmen for ABC. Daly was ABC's newscaster while Wallace had recently been hired to do The Mike Wallace Interview program. Wallace had vaulted to fame with a series of sensationalistic and sleazy interviews on local TV in New York City--and Daly wanted nothing to do with him. Through a leak at ABC, Daly found out five hours before WML's live broadcast that Wallace was scheduled to be that night's mystery guest. He called Fates and told him he refused to do a show with Wallace. Daly was so popular and integral to WML that Fates had to find a replacement mystery guest. He quickly booked Sammy Davis, Jr., who was appearing at the Latin Quarter two blocks away from the WML studio. Everything seemingly went smoothly that night and a crisis had been averted. However, the next morning, the front page of the New York Journal-American carried this headline: "DALY BARS WALLACE: SWITCH IN GUESTS AVERTS HASSLE ON WHAT'S MY LINE?" Fates stated that there was no byline attached to the article, but its style was unmistakably that of WML panelist and gossip columnist Dorothy Kilgallen. The article ended by saying, "TV insiders claim that Daly was violently opposed to ABC's hiring of Wallace in the first place." Fates found out afterward that Dorothy had sensed something was amiss and she had "pried the details out of [WML staffer] Bob Bach." Fates went on to say, "Aside from the mechanics needed to operate the program, Daly didn't speak to Kilgallen for almost six months."

Mike Marshall SI Cover Mike Marshall of the Los Angeles Dodgers (shown here on an SI cover) was the National League's Cy Young Award winner in 1974. He finished third in league MVP voting as well. A screwball pitcher, the indefatigable Marshall appeared in 106 games in 1974. Thirteen of those appearances were in consecutive games. Both marks are modern MLB records. Marshall was a bit of an eccentric for his day. He was a student of kinesiology and nearly quit baseball after 1974 to pursue his PhD. He believes that proper mechanics can totally eliminate pitchers' arm injuries. He was also dead set against signing autographs--especially for kids. Why the reluctance to sign? Marshall believed professional baseball players should not be revered as heroic figures by children. (The Cincinnati Reds, the "establishment team" of the 1970s, loathed Marshall because of his no-autograph policy--and because he made the difference in the Dodgers winnng the 1974 NL West title instead of the Reds.) The scarcity of Marshall's autograph makes it valuable and desirable to collectors. More often than not, the rare specimens of it are written as "Dr. Mike Marshall."
