Gen. Douglas MacArthur is relieved of his command; The Weavers’ “On Top of Old Smoky” is #6 on Billboard’s year-end chart; Anjelica Huston is born & William Randolph Hearst dies; All About Eve wins Best Picture at Oscars; Mel Ott & Jimmie Foxx elected to baseball’s Hall of Fame; Bobby Thomson hits historic homer for New York Giants to down Brooklyn Bums; and “Dennis the Menace” comic strip debuts in U.S.
OK, I'm gonna be close on this one. Truman relieved MacArthur in the Korean War when MacArthur wanted to cross the Yalu River into China. The war started in June of 1950. I was in xx grade when Bobby T. hit the home run, so I say 1951.
Can definitely see Booker in this photo!
