    December 6, 1954: A wonder dog named "Kid" was astounding the public with her uncanny genius. Owner H.S. Catchell claimed the canine understood more than 2,000 words and was still learning. Kid came from Omaha, Nebraska and her mother was a Labrador-Airedale cross. Apparently, the dog can point to light switches, identify certain stripes of neckties, and retrieve maps from a pile of papers. Kid's owner claims that mutts are smarter than purebreds when it comes to learning human language.

  6. 54 skylark hydro-lectric/window assembly help needed

    I wonder if this was the answer to a buyer wanting power windows once the car was at the dealer. Dealer option? Seems odd two Buicks with power windows have similar cuts and welds. Then again, maybe it is just the way mechanics back then handled repairs on power windows.

    On this day December 1, 1954:Located in the heart of downtown Dallas, Republic Center is a Class A, mixed-use office and retail project residing on one of the largest contiguous blocks. Republic Center has been a Dallas landmark since 1954 and was completely restored in 2000 with a $75 million renovation to create a state-of-the-art facility. The complex was built in three stages, with Tower I opening on December 1, 1954. Dallas society turned out for the elaborate festivities held at Fair Park. Major R.L. Thornton, whose Mercantile National Bank had been Dallas' highest building before Republic's completion, enviously quipped, "It's a fine building, if a bit too high to suit us."

    On this day November 30 1954:The first modern instance of a meteorite striking a human being occurs at Sylacauga, Alabama, when a meteorite crashes through the roof of a house and into a living room, bounces off a radio, and strikes a woman on the hip. The victim, Mrs. Elizabeth Hodges, was sleeping on a couch at the time of impact. The space rock was a sulfide meteorite weighing 8.5 pounds and measuring seven inches in length. Mrs. Hodges was not permanently injured but suffered a nasty bruise along her hip and leg.
