Hans Remembers- Monday November 23, 1970- 50 Years Ago.

  • Pope Paul VI ruled that Roman Catholic cardinals who were 80 years old or older would not be allowed to participate in the next election for a pontiff. This would disenfranchise 25 cardinals born in or before 1890. This also reduced the number of Italian members in the College of Cardinals- and made it more likely that the next Pope would be a non-Italian.
  • Yusof Ishak the President of Singapore since the nation became independent in 1965- died at the age of 60.
  • George Harrison’s single “My Sweet Lord” is released a couple days ahead of this landmark All Things Must Pass album- “My Sweet Lord” Harrison’s first solo single would go to #1 on the singles chart.
