FAMOUS FIRSTS By Kathy Wolfe

This week Tidbits looks at the originals, the pioneers, the earliest – all those who made history by being the first to hit the scene. • Established in 1636, Harvard is America’s first institution of higher learning. The college, originally just for men, was founded 16 years after the Pilgrims arrived at Plymouth, with an enrollment of nine students. The institution owes its name to its first benefactor, John Harvard, a minister who bequeathed his library and half his worth to the college. Seven U.S. presidents are Harvard graduates, as well as 40 Nobel Prize winners. • Alan Shepard was the first American in space, but not the first human in space. That distinction belongs to Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, who rocketed into space on April 15, 1961, a mere three weeks before Shepard’s May 5th flight. Nine months later, astronaut John Glenn became the first American to orbit Earth, circling the globe three times in just under five hours. That wasn’t to be Glenn’s final recordbreaking flight. At age 77, he spent nine days aboard the space shuttle, Discovery, testing the effects of space on the elderly.

you'd buy an inexpensive, no-frills phone (although with many of them you can receive text messages). With a prepaid plan, you pay for the phone up front. There's no credit check, no contract to sign, no monthly charges. You pay in advance for your minutes. The more minutes you buy, the longer you have to use them because the minutes generally don't roll over. Even with prepaid phone service, beware the cost of daily use. There's a tradeoff between the number of days you'll use your phone and the cost of each minute. For example, with one large carrier, your access cost on the days you use the phone is $3.99 but your minutes are free, with text messages only Prepaid Plans Limit Cell Phone Costs costing 1 cent.

colon's outer wall. The bulges are the lining of the colon that has been pushed through the muscular colon wall and has popped out on its outer surface. They are pea-size to marble-size. When the necks of diverticula become obstructed, bacteria within the diverticula causes swelling and pain. Prevention of diverticula formation and diverticula obstruction centers on a high-fiber diet. A particular food isn't usually the culprit. A lack of fiber is the troublemaker. Fiber holds on to water and keeps the food residue soft. If the residue hardens, the colon has to generate great force to move it along, and that force is responsible for diverticula formation.

Don't blunt the pain with medicines until you find the cause.

With only two known to exist, the rarest U.S. postage stamp is the 1-cent 1868 Benjamin Franklin Z-Grill, so called because of the shape that was impressed into the stamp. One of the Z-Grills is in the collection of the New York Public Library, and

The World Sauna Championships have taken place in Heinola, Finland, annually since 1999. The starting temperature is a sweltering 110 degrees Celsius (230

Set the partial roll into a baby-wipes container or other sealable plastic container and add your favorite cleaning product to moisten, with just a little extra solution visible in the bottom of the container.

On March 11, 1818, "Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheusm" is published. The book, by 21-yearold Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, is frequently called the world's first science-fiction novel. In Shelley's tale, a scientist animates a creature constructed from dismembered corpses. On March 10, 1876, the first discernible speech is transmitted over a telephone system when inventor Alexander Graham Bell summons his assistant in another room by saying, "Mr. Watson, come here; I want you." Bell had received a telephone patent three days before, just hours ahead of another inventor, Elisha Gray. On March 12, 1903, the New York Highlanders are given the go-ahead by team owners to join baseball's American League. The Highlanders had recently moved from Baltimore, where they were called the Orioles. The team officially changed its name to the New York Yankees in 1913. On March 14, 1935, 6-year-old actress Shirley Temple presses her hands in cement outside Grauman's Chinese Theater in Los Angeles. She first won attention with a song and dance in the 1934 movie "Get Up and Cheer." On March 13, 1942, the Quartermaster Corps of the U.S. Army begins training dogs for the newly established War Dog Program, or "K-9 Corps." The top canine hero of World War II was Chips, who attacked an enemy machine gun nest in Italy, forcing the entire crew to surrender. The wounded Chips was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, Silver Star and the Purple Heart -- all of which were later revoked due to an Army policy preventing official commendation of animals. On March 9, 1959, the first Barbie doll goes on display at the American Toy Fair in New York City. Barbie was the first mass-produced toy doll in the United States with adult features. Barbie's appearance was modeled on a doll named Lilli, based on a German comic-strip character.
