Congressman Powell
  • The U.S. House of Representatives voted 248 to 176 to bar New York Congressman Adam Clayton Powell Jr. from taking his seat in the House. An earlier resolution that would have censured Powell, but would have allowed him to serve, failed 202-222. Powell had been accused of diverting more than $56,000 in taxpayer funds for his personal use.[1]
  • Clay Shaw, the former director of the International Trade Mart in New Orleans, became the first person since 1963 to be arrested on accusations of the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy. The New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison had ordered that Shaw be charged with conspiracy to commit murder. After posting a bond of $10,000 Shaw was released. Garrison told reporters, "There will be more arrests," and added, "If you want to bet against me, you will lose.[2]
  • Óscar Gestido was sworn in as President of Uruguay, ending a 15 year experiment in "collegiate government" (el colegiado) in which the South American republic was administered by a nine member Consejo Nacional de Gobierno, with a different member selected each year to preside over meetings.[3] During the council's reign, Uruguay had functioned as a socialist state with a 30-hour work week, retirement at age 55 with full pay, and government jobs for 40% of the work force, but had also been plagued by inflation, frequent labor strikes, low productivity and widespread discontent. Gestido was sworn in for a five year term, and the nine councilors (including council president Alberto Héber) stepped down.[4]
  • Ernesto Miranda, whose original conviction for kidnapping and rape had been reversed after the 1963 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court that gave rise to the "Miranda warning" that bears his name, was found guilty on retrial and was given a sentence of 20 to 30 years in the Arizona State Prison.[5]

  • Two U.S. Air Force planes mistakenly bombed the South Vietnamese village of Lang Vei in the Quang Tri Province with napalm, killing 135 men, women and children who were part of the Bru minority group. Another 213 civilians survived their burns. Less than a year later, the unfortunate hamlet would be the scene of the bloody Battle of Lang Vei between South Vietnamese and North Vietnamese troops.[10]

  • Former film and television actress Betty Furness was appointed by U.S. President Johnson to the newly created post of Special Assistant for Consumer Affairs. Despite initial concerns that she had been chosen solely for her celebrity status, Mrs. Furness would quickly prove to be knowledgeable and effective consumer protection advocate.[17]
  • A U.S. presidential commission recommended a reform to the American selective service system, in what was described as a "youngest first by random selection procedure". While the existing method was for local draft boards to fill their quotas starting with 26-year old men, the new system would eliminate the 4,100 community draft boards and randomly select registered 19-year old men. "If a man is not drafted at 19," a reporter noted, "chances are good under the new proposal that he would never be drafted short of total war." [18]

  • CBS Reports aired the first television news documentary in U.S. history to report on gay and lesbian issues. Hosted by Mike Wallace, and viewed by 40 million people,[33] "The Homosexuals" "reflected the bias of the American Psychological Association... labeling homosexuality a mental illness" but also showed gays and lesbians as individuals whose civil rights were deprived. TV critics reacted differently, with Chicago Tribune columnist Clay Gowran, who called the show "garbage" and said that "it was permitted.. not only to justify the aberration but, it seemed, to glorify it",[34] while Tribune columnist Herb Lyon wrote that it "was one of the most intelligent, mature, incisive shows ever produced." [35]
  • Manuel Apud, a former official of Cuba's Ministry of Industry, testified before a U.S. Senate subcommittee that the Soviet Union had resumed placement of intermediate-range ballistic missiles in Cuba, four years after the Cuban Missile Crisis had ended with a Soviet pledge that it would not put nuclear missiles on the Caribbean island nation. Apud said that he had viewed the missiles and said that they were identical to the FROG (Free Range On Ground) missiles that could be transported on a mobile launcher.[36]

The St. Kitts Warden for Anguilla, resident administrator Vincent F. Byron, had been the only person inside the building at the time and was able to escape uninjured, but "lost all his personal effects and a car" in the blaze.[37] Byron would be forced to leave Anguilla on May 31, along with the police force from the rest of the West Indies, with the Anguillans severing relations with St. Kitts and Nevis.[38][39]
  • The U.S. Department of Defense announced that American forces in the Vietnam War had suffered their heaviest casualties since the start of the war, with 232 men killed and 1,381 wounded during the week ending March 4.[40] The single bloodiest day was Tuesday, February 28, when 61 American servicemen died.[41]

March 9, 1967 (Thursday)

  • TWA Flight 553, a DC-9 jet flying from Pittsburgh to Dayton, Ohio, collided in mid-air with a small Beechcraft Baron executive plane over Concord Township, five miles from Urbana, Ohio.[42] All 25 people on the DC-9 (which was only one-third occupied) were killed, along with the Beechcraft's sole occupant. An investigation determined that the TWA jet, which was preparing to enter the holding pattern prior to a landing at the Dayton airport, descended onto the slower Beechcraft plane, whose pilot was flying from Detroit to a business conference in Springfield, Ohio.[43] The accident would lead the Federal Aviation Administration to place speed restrictions on aircraft flying below 10,000 feet (3,048 m) and would contribute to its decision to create terminal control areas (TCAs).[44]
  • U.S. Navy Lt. (jg) Frank Prendergast became "the only American aviator to escape after being captured in North Vietnam", after bailing out of his plane and coming down off the coast of North Vietnam's Thanh Hoa Province. After being inflating his life preserver, Prendergast was forced to surrender when a party of NVA soldiers waded out toward him. As he and they slowly marched back toward shore, several U.S. Navy planes strafed the beach, and all but two of the soldiers fled. With each strafing run, the two soldiers would dive underwater while Prendergast remained standing; when he saw an SH-3 rescue helicopter, he waited for his two captors to go underwater again, pulled a small .25 caliber automatic from his flight suit and shot the first guard to surface, while the SH-3's door gunner killed the other one. Prendergast was safely flown back to the USS Kitty Hawk.[45]

  • American aircraft attacked the steel and iron works at Thái Nguyên, North Vietnam, for the first time.[48] During the mission, USAF Captain Robert Pardo and his wingman, Captain Earl Aman, were flying F-4 Phantom jets, when Aman's plane was damaged by antiaircraft fire lost almost all of its fuel. Captain Pardo radioed Aman to lower the stricken plane's tailhook and pushed Aman's F-4 by maneuvering to place Aman's tailhook against the base of his own windscreen. With one of his own F-4's engines on fire, Pardo pushed Aman's powerless plane for 90 miles (145 km), and all four men aboard the two fighters ejected over Laos, where they could avoid capture, rather than North Vietnam.[49] Another USAF Captain, Merlyn Hans Dethlefsen, earned the Medal of Honor for his heroism on the same day, destroying one of the North Vietnamese missile sites guarding Thai Nguyen, despite the damage to his own F-105 Thunderchief.[50] Captain Dethlefsen would be presented the nation's highest honor by President Johnson on February 1, 1968.
  • Mrs. Maria Teresa Sepulveda, a 21-year-old woman in Mexico City, gave birth in the first confirmed case of octuplets, four boys and four girls.[51] Although all eight were born alive, none of the Sepulveda babies, who ranged in size from 18 1/2 to 22 ounces, survived; the last one, a boy, passing away 14 hours after his birth.[52][53]

  • The Chicago Blackhawks finally broke the "Curse of Muldoon" that had supposedly been placed upon them in 1927 when coach Pete Muldoon was fired. The 40-year curse was that the Blackhawks would never again finish in first place in the one-division National Hockey League, though it hadn't prevented the Hawks from winning the Stanley Cup in 1934, 1938 and 1961, and the story was not reduced to print until a Toronto sportswriter had popularized it. Well before the end of the 1966-1967 season, Chicago had clinched the Prince of Wales Trophy (for best regular season record), and would finish with 84 points (37 wins, 10 ties and 14 losses), far ahead of the New York Rangers' 65 points (27-11-23).[61]

Stevens, whose party had won a majority in parliament in elections four days earlier, was preparing to take the oath at the State House in Freetown, when troops led by Sierra Leone Army General David Lansana arrested him and Boston.[102] "If the army had not intervened," a historian would write later, "Sierra Leone would have been an example of the first peaceful transfer of political power in independent Africa, with a propensity to nourish democratic principles. The presumption of the military established a dangerous precedent for subsequent civil-military relations." [82] Lansana would be overthrown in a counter-coup two days later.

  • In what was described as "one of history's most stunning elections", the U.S. state of Florida became "the first two-party state in the south" as the Republican Party won 20 of the 48 seats in the state senate, and 40 of the 119 in the state house of representatives. Before the election, Democrats held 37 senate seats and Republicans held 11; the Democrats formerly held 97 house seats while the GOP held 26. The shift meant that Governor Claude Kirk, a Republican, had veto power over state legislation because the opposing party no longer had the necessary 2/3rds majority to override his actions.[140]

March 29, 1967 (Wednesday)

Le Redoutable
  • The first French nuclear submarine, Le Redoutable, was launched from Cherbourg, and would soon be armed with 16 MSBS nuclear missiles.[141][142]
  • At 5:00 a.m. Eastern Time, the employees of all three television networks (ABC, CBS and NBC) and their radio networks went on strike. Announcers, newscasters, actors, and other performers who were members of the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) walked off the job for the first time in AFTRA's history, after being unable to agree on a new collective bargaining agreement to replace the contract that had expired on November 15.[143] The strike would be settled after 13 days and would end on April 10 in time for CBS to host the Academy Awards telecast.[144]
  • Ecuador became an oil-producing nation as a drilling consortium jointly operated by the Texaco and Gulf Oil corporations struck oil in at the Lago Agrio oil field in the Amazon jungle, at the Sucumbíos Province.[145]
  • The United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit voted, 8 to 4, to affirm a decision ordering the integration of any remaining racially segregated public schools in the six southern states in its jurisdiction, and to do so in time for the opening of the 1967-1968 school year. The ruling directly affected Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas, and served as precedent for segregated schools elsewhere in the United States.[146] The case specifically involved a December 29 district court order brought to desegregate school systems in the Caddo, Bossier, Jackson and Claiborne parishes of Louisiana, Jefferson County, Alabama, and the Alabama cities of Fairfield and Bessemer.[147]
  • The nation of Greece presented former U.S. President Harry S Truman a 2,500-year old helmet that had been worn by an Athenian soldier, "in everlasting recognition of a great debt" on the 20th anniversary of the 1947 proclamation of the Truman Doctrine that the U.S. would protect Greece (and Turkey) from communist aggression. Alexander A. Matsas, the Greek ambassador to the United States, handed what he described as "one of the most significant relics that has ever been yielded by the ancient soil of Greece" to U.S. Secretary of State Dean Rusk, commenting that the gift for Truman was "the helmet of an Athenian citizen who fell in defending democracy and freedom." [148]
  • The 1967 World Ice Hockey Championships, held in Vienna, Austria, were won by the Soviet Union for the fifth year in a row. The Soviet team won all seven of its games, defeating Czechoslovakia 4-2 in a game marked by fist fights; at one point in the game, "seven players were in the penalty box at one time", leaving only one Russian skater and two Czechoslovakian skaters, and each side's goaltenders, on the ice. The Soviet team also beat Sweden, Canada, the U.S., Finland, East Germany and West Germany. Sweden defeated Canada, 6-0, in the other game to be awarded second place.[149] After the game, 56 of the spectators from Czechoslovakia asked for political asylum, as well as nine from Hungary and two from Poland.[150]
  • Born: Brian Jordan, American athlete who played two seasons as a defensive back in the NFL and 15 seasons as an outfielder in Major League Baseball; in Baltimore
  • Died: Marshal Rodion Malinovsky, 69, Defense Minister of the Soviet Union since 1957

March 30, 1967 (Thursday)

  • SEACOM, the South-East Asia Commonwealth telephone cable, inaugurated service at 3:00 p.m. local time in a ceremony at the Wentworth Hotel in Sydney,[151] making it possible for direct calls between Australia and its neighbors in the Pacific, which in turn allowed calls to the rest of the world.[152] Speaking from Buckingham Palace at 5:00 in the morning London time, Queen Elizabeth II opened for two minutes to the crowd. Deputy Prime Minister of Australia John McEwen then hosted a series of conversations between other prime ministers, beginning with Keith Holyoake of New Zealand chatting with Tunku Abdul Rahman of Malaysia.[153] The 7,070 nautical mile undersea cable connected from Sydney to Kuala Lumpur and Singapore "via Cairns, Madang, Guam, Hong Kong and Kota Kinabulu" [154] and has been described as "the greatest single Commonwealth achievement in communications".[155]
  • A Delta Air Lines DC-8 jet crashed into the Hilton Inn and three neighboring houses at New Orleans, after being taking off from the airport to begin a training flight. Flight 9877 was turning to make a practice landing when it stalled and then plummeted into the residential neighborhood at 12:50 in the morning, killing 13 people on the ground and all six of the crew on the plane.[156] Nine of the victims were girls from Union High School in Juda, Wisconsin, who were on a senior class trip during spring break.[157][158] The Federal Aviation Administration would later conclude that the crash had been caused by the crew's decision to lower the flaps to full landing position (50 degrees down) "while the plane was still a mile from the airport", slowing the airspeed, halting rudder and aileron control and allowing the plane to roll. [159]
  • The Beatles posed with a photographic collage and wax figures from Madame Tussaud's famous museum for the cover artwork of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album at Chelsea Manor Studios in London.
  • Born: Albert-László Barabási, Romanian-born Hungarian and American physicist; in Carta, Mures-Magyar Autonomous Region
  • Died: Jean Toomer, 72, African-American novelist and poet in the "Harlem Renaissance"

March 31, 1967 (Friday)

  • U.S. President Lyndon Johnson signed the instrument of ratification of the consular treaty between the United States and the Soviet Union. Representatives of both nations had signed the bilateral agreement on June 1, 1964, but the U.S. Senate did not ratify it until March 16, 1967. The convention, which addressed "procedures to be followed in nondiplomatic relations", would go into effect later in the year.[160]
  • The Chinese Communist Party made its first official attack against President Liu Shaoqi, as the journal Red Flag condemned Liu's 1939 book, "How to Be a Good Communist". The official journal wrote that the book "takes a roundabout route to push bourgeois individualism and slavery" and that "its bad influence must be thrown out." [161]
  • Kicking off a tour with The Walker Brothers, Cat Stevens and Engelbert Humperdinck at The Astoria London, Jimi Hendrix set fire to his guitar on stage for the first time. He was taken to hospital suffering burns to his hands. The guitar-burning act would later become a trademark of Hendrix's performances.
