    1927 Leon Trotsky was expelled from the Communist Party and Joseph Stalin became the ruler of the Soviet Union. 1942 The World War II battle of Guadalcanal begins. 1954 Ellis Island stopped serving as the chief immigration station for the United States. Twenty million immigrants went through Ellis Island in its 62 years of operation. 1970 A cyclone and tidal wave hit East Pakistan, killing over 200,000 people. 1981 The space shuttle Columbia was launched for the second time. It was the first time a space vehicle was used more than once. 1990 Akihito becomes emperor of Japan. 1997 Ramzi Yousef, the man behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, was convicted in New York. ***********************************************************************************************DAILY EXTRA******************************************** 1920....................................Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis was elected the first commissioner of baseball. Landis, Kenesaw Mountain kĕn´əsô˝ [key], 1866–1944, American jurist and commissioner of baseball (1921–44), b. Millville, Butler co., Ohio, grad. Union College of Law (now Northwestern Univ. law school), 1891. He practiced law in Chicago after 1891, the year he was admitted to the bar, and later served (1905–22) as a U.S. district judge in N Illinois. In 1907 he imposed a $29,240,000 fine on the Standard Oil Company of Indiana in a rebate case. Though it was reversed by a higher court, the decision won him wide acclaim. In 1917 he sentenced William D. Haywood , American labor leader, to a 20-year prison term, and although the decision was later reversed by the U.S. Supreme Court, Landis sentenced Victor Berger and six other Socialists for sedition (impeding the war effort). After organized baseball was confronted (1920) with the Black Sox scandal, a committee of baseball executives appointed (1921) Landis—who had presided at the case in which the newly organized Federal League brought suit against the National and American leagues for violating the Sherman Anti-Trust Act—to the new post of baseball commissioner. Landis immediately barred from organized baseball the eight Chicago White Sox players charged with bribery in the 1919 world series. The strict discipline he imposed on players and managements did much to restore public faith in professional baseball.

He has appeared in several highly successful Hollywood films like ‘Half Nelson’ and ‘Lars and the Real Girl’ for which he received numerous award nominations. The talented actor had always loved acting and was especially influenced by the film ‘Dick Tracy’ which he first watched as a child. Such was the impact of films on his young mind that he once took steak knives to school after watching the Sylvester Stallone action film, ‘First Blood’ and threw them at classmates. He was often bullied in school and had problems making friends; he also suffered from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. There was however one thing that he was good at—performing. As a child he had performed with ‘The Mickey Mouse Club’ for two years. He also used to sing at weddings with his sister and got involved with a local ballet company. Performing before audiences boosted his confidence and he decided to make a career out of it. Initially he played minor roles in independent films before landing on substantial roles in bigger movies. His career began to take off after his role in ‘The Notebook’ and he went on to carve a niche for himself in Hollywood.

    1620 The Mayflower Compact was signed by Pilgrims aboard the Mayflower. It would provide the basis for all governments of the American colonies. 1831 Former slave Nat Turner was executed. 1889 Washington became the 42nd state. 1918 The Allies and Germany signed an armistice ending World War I. 1965 Rhodesia proclaimed its independence from Britain. 1992 The Church of England voted to ordain women as priests. 2004 Yasir Arafat, chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization, died in Paris. Mahmoud Abbas was elected to take his place. **************************************************************************************DAILY EXTRA***************************************************** 1921...................................The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was dedicated in Arlington National Cemetery. Tomb, vault or chamber constructed either partly or entirely above ground as a place of interment. Although it is often used as a synonym for grave , the word is derived from the Greek tymbos [burial ground]. It may also designate a memorial shrine erected above a grave. The concept of the tomb as a chamber or dwelling place for the dead is the most widespread. It may have originated in the practice, known in prehistoric times and common among so-called primitive peoples of today, of burying the dead underneath their place of dwelling. Sometimes the survivors continue to live in the house sometimes they seal and abandon it after a burial. This may account for the recurrence in different periods and places of the domed or conical funeral mounds and chambers (such as the prehistoric barrow , the beehive tomb of Mycenaean civilization , the mausoleum of Persian and Roman royalty, and the stupa of Asia) and of the artificial caves commonly called rock-cut tombs (such as those found in Petra, Jordan Thebes, Egypt and in various parts of Asia). When corpses were buried outside the house, the purpose of protecting the body and possibly confining the spirit was often served by heaping stones above the grave. This may have been the initial structure that gave rise to the mastaba and later to the pyramid of Egypt. Such heaps of stones also served as markers or shrines where offerings might be left to the spirits of the dead. Christian tombs, relatively simple at first, had by the Middle Ages become quite splendid. It became the custom to build a church over the grave of a martyr. For centuries, kings and other privileged persons were buried within the church buildings, their graves often surmounted by a little shrine or by a sarcophagus bearing an effigy of the deceased. In Great Britain many important personages have been entombed in Westminster Abbey . Famous funerary structures of modern times include the Taj Mahal , at Agra, India the Dôme des Invalides , Paris, which contains the tomb of Napoleon General Grant's tomb, New York City and the Lenin mausoleum, Moscow.

    1871 Journalist and explorer Henry Stanley found the missing David Livingstone in Central Africa and made his famous comment, "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?" 1928 Hirohito was crowned Emperor of Japan. 1951 The first long distance telephone call without operator assistance took place. 1969 Sesame Street premiered on PBS TV. 1970 The Great Wall of China opened to the world for tourism. *********************************************************************************************DAILY EXTRA********************************************** 1982..............................................The Vietnam Veterans Memorial opened in Washington, DC. Vietnam Veterans Memorial, war memorial in Washington, D.C., built 1982. Designed by the American sculptor and architect Maya Ying Lin, it is a sloping, V-shaped, 493-ft (150-m) wall of highly polished black granite that descends 10 feet (3.05 meters) below grade level at its vertex. Often called simply The Wall, it is inscribed with the names of the more than 58,000 Americans killed or missing during the Vietnam War . The austere, abstract nature of Lin's design, which was selected after a nationwide competition, at first made it a controversial way of memorializing the war's casualties. In the years since its construction, however, the simple, evocative, and starkly dramatic wall has become a national shrine, drawing more annual visitors than the Washington Monument or the Lincoln Memorial . Two nearby sculptures also honor those who served in the war one is of three soldiers by Frederick E. Hart (erected 1984), the other of three nurses and a wounded soldier by Glenna Goodacre (erected 1993).
