|"Who Can I Turn To?" is a
It was written by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley and published in 1964. The song was introduced in the musical The Roar of the Greasepaint—the Smell of the Crowd, which struggled in the United Kingdom in 1964 and then made a tour of the United States later that year. In 1964 Shirley Bassey recorded the song and released it as a single, however it failed to chart. Recorded by Tony Bennett, "Who Can I Turn To?" became a hit, reaching number 33 on the U.S. pop singles chart and the top 5 of the Adult Contemporary chart. So fueled, the musical arrived on Broadway for a successful run, and the song became one of Bennett's staples.

TODAY IN THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES:
http://www.civilwarinteractive.com/This%20Day/thisday0903.htm - INCLUDING:
Tuesday, Sept. 3, 1861
CONFEDERATE CONQUEST CONFOUNDS KENTUCKY
Life was tough in border states. Passions flared for and against secession, slavery and all the other issues of the day, but nearly as many felt strongly on either side of the various issues. So far the new legislature was holding with the Union. This did not suit Confederate Gen. Gideon Pillow, so, under orders from Gen. Leonidas Polk, he invaded the state and headed for Columbus, Ky., on the Mississippi River. The Confederate Secretary of War, LeRoy Walker of Alabama, was horrified and tried to send orders to Polk to withdraw the invasion forthwith, but he was overruled by Jefferson Davis.
Wednesday, Sept. 3, 1862
PORTER PERFORMED POORLY, POPE POUTS
Gen. John Pope looked around today and discovered that he had misplaced his army. Actually it wasn’t the army that was lost, but his command of it. He therefore sat down to write his report, which was dedicated to the proposition that none of the mistakes that had resulted in his being pushed from the Shenandoah Valley to the suburbs of Washington, were in any way his fault. The first recipient of his wrath was Gen. Fitz John Porter, who was said to have “disobeyed orders in the face of the enemy.” The second, naturally, was Gen. George McClellan, who Pope accused of failing to move quickly enough to come to his aid. Although this was in fact true, it overlooked the problem that fighting Pope’s battles was not technically on the books as McClellan’s job.
Thursday, Sept. 3, 1863
VICKSBURG VETERANS VACATIONS VOIDED
Vicksburg had fallen to siege on July 4. Part of the terms of surrender negotiated by Gen. John C. Pemberton was that his men, all 27,000 of them, would be paroled en masse and given a 30-day furlough, which was the time during which they would not be permitted to take up arms against the enemy. The men were to go to their homes, take care of necessary business and visit their families, then return to Pemberton’s command. The problem was with Part 3...the thirty days were up and an awful lot of his men were forgetting the part about returning to the army. Since they had not gone through the usual process of exchange they could not legally be used for fighting anyway, but these niceties were beginning to go by the wayside.
Friday, Sept. 3, 1864
SUDDEN SCUFFLE SURPRISES SHERIDAN
Gen. Jubal Early had been sent North on a desperate mission: wreak havoc and terrify the citizenry that Washington was about to be captured. This, the thinking went, would cause Lincoln to recall part--or maybe even all--of Grant’s army besieging Petersburg. In this Early had failed, and Lee was beginning to pressure him to get back to help with the defense. Early sent R.H. Anderson’s corps back today, but as they were heading up the Shenandoah Valley they ran into a corps of Gen. Phil Sheridan’s army. The battle, although a genuine surprise to both sides, was quite fierce for awhile and Anderson retreated back to Early’s main force.
From Phil Hammond ('64) of FL - 09/02/11 - "Happy Birthday":
|I hope you had a Happy
Birthday, Carol. You deserve it.
Thanks so much, Phil
- I had a wonderful time on
my sixty-fourth birthday!
We were too
busy raucously laughing ourselves silly to take pictures on my birthday,
but Paul took these shots of the four of us a couple of days later.
We do have fun together!

From My Cousin, Jean Atkinson Mallory (Warsaw HS / Rappahannock HS / John Marshall HS - '65) of VA - 09/03/11, 1:02 PM - "Birthday Greeting was from me!":
That's what I said!
I said I was having a great day on my birthday, but you
were having a crummy day that day because of the double whammy of the
08/23/11 earthquake closely followed by Hurricane Irene! And then you
said... and then I said... Oh, I'm so confused!
Well, anyway, thanks again, Jean! I hope things are running more smoothly there now!
From Connie Gudger Matthews of Salisbury, NC - 09/02/11 - "Pal Memories":
When I was a little girl - a daddy's girl - I never wanted to eat breakfast which really upset my mom who believed in getting your day started off right with a good breakfast. My dad took me to school each morning and I knew he would stop by the little country store on the way to school and get me my breakfast - a Pal Orange. On the way out the door, my mom would say, "You better not stop and buy her a drink (we didn't call them soda) on the way to school."
My dad would
wink at me and head to the little store!
P.S. I was in Walgreen's this morning and they had a drink box labeled "Retro Drinks." It had RC Cola, Nehi, etc. in it. It made me think of Pal and how great it would be to have one! They were the best!!! I couldn't wait to get to work and Google "Pal."
LOVED your story, Connie! Thank you so much for sharing it with us! It's now a part of our permanent archive:
From Tommy Jenkins ('66) of VA - 09/02/11 - "Old Picture":
Found this old picture recently and know there are some Typhoon alumni in it as well as myself. Identified as best I could after 55 years!!!!!
If you would be so kind as to post in your newsletter should be some great memories and even laughs for many. Anyone who can help identify others please feel free to respond. This was Parkview Elementary School and due to its location some of the students went to NNHS and others attended Warwick.
Thank you so much and for all you do for the Typhoon Nation.
Take care - Tommy

WOWZERS! Thank you so much for this treasure, Tommy! I'm waiting to hear back from http://www.zamzar.com/. They're converting the .pdf file to a .jpg file for me. Then I can post it not only here, but on our Parkview School page as well:
|From www.ajokeaday.com - 09/02/11:|
A man whose wife was pregnant couldn't bear to be in the delivery room at the time of the birth, so he thought he'd ring up later to see if it had come yet.
He rang up and the nurse said, "It's a girl but there's another one on the way."
He rang again later and the nurse said, "It's another girl but there's another coming."
He rang once more and the nurse said, "It's a boy but there's another coming."
He couldn't stand it any more so he went to the pub and got drunk.
An hour later he was really nervous. He was dialing the hospital, hands shaking, and accidentally dialed the sports line. He asked, "How many did we get, mate?"
The person said, "198 all out.... and the last one was a duck."
