Brooklyn Eagle: April 11: ON THIS DAY in 1951, GOP hurls threat to impeach Truman

ON THIS DAY IN 1865, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “It is semi-officially announced that Mr. Lincoln is engaged in preparing a proclamation, in which he will submit to the South the terms upon which her people can secure peace. The issue is now narrowed down to this: are we willing to let bye-gones be bye-gones and restore to the people of the South the rights they forfeited by taking up arms against the government? The president, it is known, will insist upon the total abolition of slavery in the South; beyond this and the restoration of the Union it is believed he desires to ask nothing.”

***

ON THIS DAY IN 1942, the Eagle reported, “Donald Nelson, head of the War Production Board at Washington, was urged today to save the proposed $5,500,000 Brooklyn-Queens express highway project’s priority rating. A direct appeal to the WPB chief was made by John R. Crews, Kings County Republican chairman, who emphasized he was speaking in his personal capacity as a private citizen of Brooklyn rather than in his party role. Mr. Crews telegraphed Mr. Nelson that all Brooklyn has been stunned at disclosures that the project has been jeopardized despite strong recommendations in its favor by U.S. Navy Department officials. ‘This project is imperative to prevent intolerable traffic delays affecting 30,000 Navy Yard workers,’ Mr. Crews wired. ‘As a private citizen of Brooklyn I appeal respectfully for prompt action by yourself that this project may be completed without delay.’”

ON THIS DAY IN 1947, the Eagle reported, “Langley Collyer was to be buried today in Cypress Hills Cemetery beside the body of the blind, crippled brother he had served for years until killed by one of his own booby traps in the Harlem hermits’ home. Meanwhile, Public Administrator’s Agent Robert Roberts announced the search of the tottering old brownstone building at 2078 5th Ave. has been discontinued pending settlement of the brothers’ $110,000 estate. Mr. Roberts said there appeared to be nothing more of value, except perhaps the 14 pianos, left in the building where Langley’s body was found only a few feet from the spot where his brother Homer had been discovered. Homer was buried on April 1.”

ON THIS DAY IN 1951, the Eagle reported, “Washington, April 11 (UP) – Angry Republicans raised threats of impeachment today against President [Harry] Truman and possibly Secretary of State Dean Acheson within hours after the president fired Gen. Douglas MacArthur from his Far Eastern commands. MacArthur, shorn of four posts by Mr. Truman’s surprise early morning action, announced that he will come back home in about three weeks to tell his side of just about the bitterest controversy that ever shook this capital. In a telephone talk across an ocean and a continent, MacArthur told House Republican Leader Joseph W. Martin Jr. that he would like to address a joint session of Congress. Martin put in his call to Tokyo at a 30-minute secret meeting in his office at which House and Senate Republican leaders demanded congressional foreign policy investigation followed by ‘possible impeachments.’ The Republicans did not explain the plural word ‘impeachments,’ but Martin said it was correct … In firing MacArthur, Mr. Truman said the five-star general failed to support United States and United Nations plans for defeating Communism.”

***

ALSO IN 1951, the Eagle reported, “Bishop Thomas F. Molloy of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn has been made an Archbishop by Pope Pius XII in recognition of the ‘distinguished service’ he has rendered to the church in the administration of the diocese, the Brooklyn diocesan office was informed today … In the announcement it was stated that the elevation to Archbishop was a personal honor, and that Archbishop Molloy’s new title is to be distinguished from the title of Archbishop which Cardinal Spellman enjoys as head of the Archdiocese of New York. Archbishop Molloy is the fourth American prelate to be given the title while head of a diocese. He presides over the largest Catholic diocese in the United States … He was made Auxiliary Bishop of the diocese in 1920 and consecrated in 1921.”
