Pay Toilets The first pay toilet in the United States was installed in 1910 in Terre Haute, Indiana. Pay toilets were prevalent in restaurants and other public buildings until the mid-1970s. However, a campaign by the Committee to End Pay Toilets In America (CEPTIA) resulted in laws prohibiting them in cities and states--legislation that was widely applauded by the public. In 1973, Chicago became the first American city to enact a pay-toilet ban. At the time, according to the Wall Street Journal, there were at least 50,000 units in America, mostly made by the Nik-O-Lok Company. CEPTIA was successful over the next few years in obtaining bans in New York, New Jersey, Minnesota, California, Florida and Ohio. Lobbying was successful in other states as well, and by decade's end, pay toilets were greatly reduced in America. However, they are surprisingly still in use in some places. Many people would be shocked to learn that pay toilets are once again legal as the CEPTIA-inspired bans from the 1970s have been repealed in many jurisdictions.

Duane Bobick-John Tate 1979 Duane Bobick was an outstanding American amateur boxing hopeful in the early 1970s. Among his defeated opponents were future world heavyweight champion Larry Holmes and Cuba's superb Teofilo Stevenson. The favorite to win the gold medal at the 1972 Munich Olympics, Bobick was instead knocked out in the quarterfinals by Stevenson. Turning pro shortly thereafter, Bobick won his first 38 pro fights. Although the quality of many of Bobick's opponents was questionable, Bobick did defeat a handful of capable fighters such as Mike Weaver, Randy Neumann, Chuck Wepner and Scott LeDoux. NBC gave Bobick a prime-time fight versus Ken Norton on Wednesday, May 11, 1977 as a means of elevating him to a modern version of the "Great White Hope." With 42 million people watching, Norton dispatched Bobick inside of one round. (I posted that bout on this website several years ago.) After that debacle, Bobick recorded six wins and a loss to South African Kallie Koenetze, so ABC decided to give Bobick another shot at making it big. On February 17, 1979, Bobick was matched against John Tate, an American bronze medallist from 1976 (who had coincidentally also been knocked silly by Teofilo Stevenson) in a live feature bout from Indianapolis on Wide World of Sports. Surely Bobick would fare better this time, right?

Frazier vs Zyglewicz  1969 On April 22, 1969, world heavyweight champion Joe Frazier put his title on the line in Houston against hometown favorite Dave (Ziggy) Zyglewicz. Ziggy, a huge underdog, gamely decided to take the fight to Frazier. Ninety-six seconds after the opening bell the contest was over. The vanquished Zyglewicz's wife later told reporters it was akin to "entering a Volkswagen in the Indianapolis 500."

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.
