The Rover Boys - Book Series The Rover Boys, or The Rover Boys Series for Young Americans, was a popular juvenile literature series authored by Arthur M. Winfield, a pseudonym for Edward Stratemeyer. Thirty titles were first published between 1899 and 1926. The original Rover Boys were brothers Tom, Sam, and Dick Rover. Their children (Fred, son of Sam Rover; Jack, son of Dick; Andy and Randy, twin sons of Tom) became the main characters of the shorter "second series" that began with Volume 21, The Rover Boys at Colby Hall, published in 1917. The elder Rovers continued making appearances in the second series. The Rovers were students at a military boarding school. They were adventurous, prank-playing, flirtatious, and often unchaperoned adolescents who were frequently causing mischief for authorities as well as criminals. The series often incorporated novel technology of the era, such as the automobile, airplanes (The Rover Boys in the Air) and news events, such as World War I. Although the last installment of the series was published in 1926, the whole Rover Boys series stayed in print for years afterward.

WWII Hawaii Overprint Money After the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, there was a legitimate fear that the Japanese would next launch a full-scale invasion of the Hawaiian Islands and occupy them. Among the consequences if that nightmare scenario actually unfolded was that all the US paper money in Hawaii would be seized from banks, businesses and private citizens and be used to finance Imperial Japan's war machine. Accordingly, a remarkable decision was made: During the first half of 1942, Hawaii's residents were ordered take their paper money to special collection areas and exchange it for new bills. Each bill had a special overprint of the word HAWAII on its reverse side. If Hawaii ever did fall to the Japanese, the US government would immediately declare the Hawaii overprint bills to be worthless. The old bills that were exchanged--about $200 million of them--were burned under the supervision of the American military. Such a calamity never occurred, of course. The overprint notes are still acceptable as legitimate US money today, although they rarely are found in general circulation.

Final Scene from The Big Parade - 1925 One of film history's largely forgotten masterpieces is The Big Parade (1925). Directed by King Vidor, the movie stars John Gilbert as James (Jim) Apperson, the pampered son of an American industrialist who, while watching a military procession, is persuaded by his patriotic friends to enlist in the US Army to fight in the First World War. The main female character, Melisande, a French farm girl, is played by Renee Adoree. The plot has Jim's unit being billeted on the grounds of Melisande's farm and the two falling in love--despite the language barrier and Jim being engaged to a girl back home named Justyn. The two lovers are separated as Jim's unit is called to the front. Jim is wounded in the leg. While recuperating in a hospital, Jim learns that Melisande's farm has changed hands several times and that Melisande and her mother are among hundreds of refugees who have fled their homes. Just before Jim returns stateside as an amputee, his mother discovers Justyn has fallen in love with Jim's brother. Accordingly, Jim's mother urges him to return to France to look for Melisande. Here is the climactic scene when Jimmy and Melisande reunite.
