The Things that Matter

It amuses me to see what makes it on to the ‘On this day’ type sites and how the things that matter in life (like Football) are interspersed with the complete trivia. Here is a little sample for 4th September from one such site......
1939 The Polish ghetto of Mir is exterminated
1941 Yanks beat Red Sox 6-3 & clinch their 12th & earliest pennant
1945 Ruben Fine wins 4 simultaneous rapid chess games blindfolded
1945 US regains possession of Wake Island from Japan
1948 Queen Wilhelmina of Netherlands abdicates
1949 Marie Robie sinks 393 yd hole-in-one
