Famous Dates in History:
October 15, 1919: Jimmy Hoffa organizes a strike with his kindergarten classmates. Lower milk prices and longer snack breaks are but two of their demands. The School capitulates after eight long days. The rest is history.
September 23, 1926: Future U.S. President Lyndon Johnson wins his Senior Class President election by giving the school election officials what he called “carrot and stick offers.” Rumors circulated later on that before the election he employed under-handed tactics, including the use of bribery and veiled threats. Even then, his overuse of the phrase “Now can I count on you to back me up?” was evident.
