WOOLWORTH STORE
Employees at a Woolworth's store at an unknown location pose in this photo from the early 1900's. Proper attire was a bylaw in the early stores, including dresses below the ankles and ties on the men at all times, although these young men more often than not spent their working hours unloading crates and scrubbing floors. Woolworth Corp. announced Thursday, July 17, 1997 that it is closing its five-and-dime stores across the country, ending a 117-year-old business that was once a fixture of American life. (AP Photo)

FILE - In this 1980 file photo, Soviet goalie Vladislav Tretiak allows a goal by the U.S. team in the first period of a medal-round hockey game at the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York. Tretiak said the U.S. hockey team taught the Soviets a "good lesson" about respecting competitors by beating them in the 1980 Olympics. Tretiak, the three-time Olympic gold medalist, gave up two goals in the first period of the "Miracle on Ice" at the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics and then was benched in what is widely regarded as the greatest upset in Olympic history.

Sochi Olympics Russian Revenge
FILE - In this Feb. 22, 1980 file photo, Michael Eruzione, left, scorer of the decisive fourth goal for the U.S. in the game against the Soviet Union in Lake Placid, is embraced by teammates John O'Callahan, David Silk, and goalie James Craig after he brought his team into the lead. The rivalry between the two countries is renewed Saturday, Feb. 15, 2014, inside the Bolshoy Ice Dome in Sochi, though this time it's only a preliminary round game instead of a semifinal. What's also different is the diminished tension surrounding this encounter. The 1980 game was played against the backdrop of a still-simmering Cold War, portrayed as a surrogate battle of good vs. evil. Which side was which depended largely on where you viewed it from.

Miss Derci said three men in an automobile stopped near her home on Feb. 22 and asked the way to the Lindbergh home. It was deduced by some observers that the planning of the kidnapping may have been made that day, although the Lindbergh baby was at the Morrow home in Englewood, N.J., at the time. (AP Photo)
