Image: Squaredance Fundamentals, by John W. Jones (Author). Publisher: BookSurge Publishing (February 5, 2007)National Square Dance Day
-- In most American forms of square dance, the dancers are prompted or cued through a sequence of steps (square dance choreography) by a caller to the beat (and, in some traditions, the phrasing) of music. In some forms of traditional square dancing, the caller may be one of the dancers or musicians, but in modern Western square dancing, the caller will be on stage, giving full attention to directing the dancers.

Read: Square Dance Fundamentals
-- Revolutionary illustrations show the dancer's point of view, not just the spectators' viewpoint. Dancers can, without turning on their heads, glean from the detailed illustrations exactly what they need to be doing with their hands, feet, etc. Each dancer can effortlessly grasp the material and easily retain it. Renown master caller/teacher, Marshall Flippo, assiduously assisted the author in establishing the very first guidelines for standardized Basic Maneuvers which would enable square dancers to dance gracefully with any group, anywhere. No one shows you better how to execute the maneuvers than John W. Jones with his super-simplified instructions and state-of-the-art illustrations in Squaredance Fundamentals - the gold standard for over 37 years.

International Day of Solidarity With The Palestinian People (1977)
- At the request of the Assembly in 1977, the observance is organized by the secretary-general in consultation with the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People. Recommendations include a plan for the return of the Palestinians to their homes and the establishment of an independent Palestinian entity.

First Army-Navy Game (1890)
- Army played Navy for the first time in football on November 29, 1890, and Navy won, 24–0. Red Emrich scored four touchdowns (worth four points each) and kicked two field goals (worth two points each), and Moulton Johnson added the other touchdown to account for all the scoring.
