Taiwan Dominates 1973 LLWS The 1973 Little League World Series featured total domination by the team from Tainan City, Taiwan. In their three games not only did the Taiwanese team record three shutouts (18-0, 27-0, and 12-0), they did not even surrender a hit to their hopelessly outclassed opponents. Because there was no mercy rule in LLWS play at the time, in their final two games the Taiwanese players deliberately bunted into outs when victory was assured. Ed Vosberg, who became a much-travelled MLB pitcher (nine teams in 10 seasons), played first base for the Tucson, AZ team that lost to Tainan City in the finals. Vosberg had pitched a one-hitter in his team's semifinal victory versus Birmingham, MI. The dominance of the Tainan City team was so thorough it compelled the Taiwanese ambassador in Washington to issue the following apology: "I am sorry we were so good."

What Mount Rushmore Was To Look Like Located in the Black Hills of South Dakota the brainchild of Doane Robinson who wanted to bring more visitors to his state. Originally it was to feature western heroes like Lewis and Clark, Red Cloud and Buffalo Bill Cody but thankfully adapted a more national theme. The photo indicates what it was to look like. The construction began in 1927 and ended in 1939 when funding ran out so they settle the busts of the presidents being the monument. The sculpture cost $989,992.32 to build.

Robert E Lee Citizenship Restored - 1975 When General Robert E. Lee surrendered his Army of Northern Virginia to General U.S. Grant on April 9, 1865 to effectively end the Civil War, one of the terms of surrender was that Confederate soldiers would have their U.S. citizenships automatically restored. When Andrew Johnson became president following Abraham Lincoln's assassination, he changed the rules slightly. Fourteen special cases had to apply directly to the President to have their citizenships restored. One such case was Robert E. Lee. Lee wrote to President Johnson on June 13, saying in part: "Being excluded from the provisions of amnesty & pardon contained in the proclamation of the 29th Ulto; I hereby apply for the benefits, & full restoration of all rights & privileges extended to those included in its terms. I graduated at the Mil. Academy at West Point in June 1829. Resigned from the U.S. Army April '61. Was a General in the Confederate Army, & included in the surrender of the Army of N. Va. 9 April '65." Consequently, Lee was provided with an Amnesty Oath form, which he filled out, dated October 2, 1865--the same day he was sworn in as president of Washington College in Lexington, VA–-and sent the signed document to the nation's capital. Lee's application was received by Secretary of State William Seward who had no intention of following through with Lee's request. Lee died in 1870 without really knowing his citizenship status. A century passed. In 1970 Lee's application was found by chance by a National Archives clerk who was looking through old State Department files. Since Lee had made the proper application to restore his citizenship, there was no reason to deny it. After Congress made Lee's old application something of a special cause, President Gerald Ford formally restored Lee's citizenship at a ceremony at his former mansion in Arlington, VA on August 5, 1975. Among those on hand for the occasion was Lee's great-great-grandson R.E. Lee V.

Vanishing TV Character - Ginny Wroblicki One Day at a Time was a CBS sitcom that garnered decent ratings during its nine-year run from 1975 through 1984. The show's premise was that a new divorcee, Ann Romano (played by Bonnie Franklin), had relocated to Indianapolis with her two daughters to begin life anew. A brash character named Ginny Wroblicki joined the cast in the show's second season as the family's apartment-building neighbor. Wroblicki (played by Mary Louise Wilson) was described by Total Television as a "brassy cocktail waitress." In her first appearance on the show, Wroblicki initially quarrels with Ann without much provocation, but in the end Wroblicki helps Ann thwart a dishonest, fly-by-night upholstering business that was trying to overcharge her. In a couple of episodes Wroblicki was the romantic interest of Dwayne Schneider, the macho apartment superintendent (played by Pat Harrington). Wroblicki's character got mixed reviews. Some fans liked her in-your-face persona while others found it too overbearing and unappealing. (One critic said Wroblicki was "mannish." Another said she "looked like she had been around the block about 10 times.") She vanished after the 1976-77 season never to be heard from again. According to some scuttlebutt, Bonnie Franklin convinced CBS to dump the Ginny Wroblicki character from the show because she feared Wilson was upstaging her.

Vanishing TV Character - Sgt Kinchloe Ivan Dixon played prisoner of war Sgt. James Kinchloe on the CBS sitcom Hogan's Heroes from 1965 to 1970. By rank, Sgt. Kinchloe (nicknamed "Kinch") was third in command of the prisoners who stealthily engaged in sabotage and espionage capers to thwart the German war machine. Sgt. Kinchloe was a "communicatins specialist" whose typical job was to send and decode radio messages. After five seasons, Dixon grew tired of the role and sought more challenging TV and movie assignments, including directing. He once complained to the producers of Hogan's Heroes that only a few of the episodes centered around Kinch and that his most common line was "Message from London, Colonel." He left the show after season five concluded in 1970. For the final season, a new black prisoner, Cpl. Richard Baker (played by Kenneth Washington), replaced Kinch and took over his position as the Heroes' communications specialist. Kinch's absence from the cast was never explained. Based on the show's premise and ongoing plot, Sgt. Kinchloe's total disappearance is hard to accept. The prisoners made certain that Stalag 13 was supposedly "escape-proof" to ensure that the easily manipulated Colonel Klink would appear efficient and remain as the camp's commander. Thus one would think that Kinchloe did not escape. So what the heck happened to him?
