Arrow That Old Black Magic

Baltimore Hippodrome Ballroom..
"That Old Black Magick" is a 1942 popular song first recorded and released as a single by Glenn Miller and His Orchestra.. The music was written by Harold Arlen, with the lyrics by Johnny Mercer..The Glenn Miller recording was released by RCA Victor Records as catalog number 20-1523-A..Recorded July 15, 1942..Mil Máscaras (born Aaron Rodríguez) is one of the original "Big Three" of the lucha libre tradition in Mexico (the other two being El Santo and Blue Demon).. His ring name is Spanish for "Thousand Masks"Dutch Jews invoked for Labor camps - Wenceslao Vinzons (b. 1910), Filipino politician and resistance leader (bayoneted to death) executed by the Japanese Army..It is said that between December 1941 and May 1942, Vinzon's troops, armed with poisoned arrows among others, were able to kill around 3,000 Japanese soldiers..The name Daet was derived from the Bikol word dai-daitan which means, close to each other..The Upsilon Sigma Phi has two chapters - 1st deportation camp at Westerbork, Jews sent to Auschwitz..

Miller spent the last night before his disappearance at Milton Ernest Hall, near Bedford.. On December 15, 1944, Miller was to fly from the United Klingdom to Paris, France, to make arrangements to move his entire band there in the near future.. His plane, a single-engined UC-64 Norseman, USAAF serial 44-70285, departed from RAF Twinwood Farm in Clapham, on the outskirts of Bedford and disappeared while flying over the English Channel.. There were two others on board the plane: Lt. Col. Norman Baessell and pilot John Morgan..The theory that the plane was hit by a bomb jettisoned by Allied planes returning from an aborted bombing raid on Germany is discredited by the log of a plane-spotter that implies that the plane was heading in a direction that would avoid the zone where such bombs were jettisoned..When Miller disappeared, he left behind his wife, the former Helen Burger, originally from Boulder, Colorado, and the two children they had adopted in 1943 and 1944, Steven & Jonnie..In February 1945, Helen Miller accepted the Bronze Star medal for Miller..The Miller estate authorized an official Glenn Miller "ghost band" in 1946..This ghost band played to very large audiences all across the United States, including a few dates at the Hollywood Palladium.. The legacy also continues through The United States Air Forces in Europe Band, stationed at Ramstein Air Base, Germany..The Noorduyn Norseman is a Canadian single-engine bush plane designed to operate from unimproved surfaces IE Water.. It was also in 1944 that a Norseman crashed into King Alfred's tower, a 50 m tall folly in Somerset, England, tragically killing all five air crew..The fifth sax, playing clarinet most of the time, lets you know whose band you're listening to.. And that's about all there is to it..

December 22, 1944: The pilot of the Allied plane was nervous..He was at 10,000 feet, over enemy mine territory.. Somewhere hidden in the black sky there was sure to be German fighter aircraft.. He scanned the darkness looking for trouble.. Suddenly he saw two large, orange glowing balls approaching him.. His radio operator saw them too.. They didn't look like enemy fighters, but neither did they look like anything he'd ever seen..The balls suddenly leveled off and started following the plane..Upon reaching our altitude, they levelled off and stayed on my tail..After two minutes, they peeled off and turned away, flying under perfect control..The U.S. Army issues their marksmanship qualification badges for a variety of weapons while the U.S. Marine Corps only issues theirs for the service rifle and service pistol..Regardless of the soldier's overall score, everyone must have a minimum hit count of three out of se7en while wearing a gas mask for the chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) firing table and two out of five while shooting at night for the night firing table.. Their minds are controlled by neural interfaces which make them believe they are their characters..In Sickbay, the Doctor is furious that he must repeatedly save his crewmates from life-threatening wounds sustained as they are hunted in the simulations... you ever looked at something and it's crazy, and then you looked at it in another way and it's not crazy at all?..Now I can see here you reported a sighting 3 years ago...
