Politics and government
The U.S. presidential election took place, with the result in doubt into the wee hours of the next day. Official results had U.S. Senator and Democratic Party candidate John F. Kennedy with 303 electoral votes to 219 electoral votes for Vice-President and Republican Party candidate Richard Nixon. The popular vote was closer, with Mr. Kennedy taking 34,227,096 votes (49.9%), and Mr. Nixon 34,108,546 (49.6%)--a difference of just 118,550 (0.1735%). Allegations of vote fraud in Illinois and southern Texas--both of which areas went to Mr. Kennedy--have always called into question the legitimacy of the result. 15 electors--8 in Mississippi, 6 in Alabama, 1 in Oklahoma--refused to vote for Mr. Kennedy and voted for U.S. Senator Harry Byrd of Virginia, a conservative Democrat who wasn’t running for President. Republicans gained 2 seats at the expense of the Democrats in U.S. Senate elections, but the Democrats still maintained a healthy 64-36 majority. In House of Representatives elections, the Republicans gained 22 seats, reducing the Democrats' lead to 262-175. In gubernatorial elections, the Democrats gained 1, giving them a 34-16 lead.

Hockey
NHL
Montreal 1 @ Boston 6

A bench-clearing brawl near the end of the game at Boston Garden marred (or made, depending on your point of view) the evening. This was one of a number of brawls during the 1970-71 season that led the NHL to adopt, in time for the 1971-72 season, the rule (66 (a)) that the first identifiable player leaving the bench to enter a brawl would receive a 5-minute major penalty and an automatic game misconduct (and an automatic 1-game suspension if the action occurred during the playoffs). The game was broadcast on CBC radio. Mickey Redmond scored the Canadiens' only goal.

Football
CFL
Western Semi-Final
Calgary 16 @ Edmonton 9

Hugh McKinnis rushed 5 yards for a touchdown late in the 4th quarter to break a 9-9 tie and give the Stampeders the win. The touchdown drive was prolonged by a pass interference call against Edmonton defensive back Mike Law, a call which was hotly disputed by the Eskimos. Eskimo coach Ray Jauch was very critical of the officiating crew headed by referee Paul Dojack, calling one of his last games. The back judge who flagged Mr. Law was Ken Stein of Vancouver, who never officiated again in the CFL after 1970. Mr. Jauch commented, "Stein should be run out of the league." The score was tied 0-0 at halftime, but the Stampeders scored after Edmonton’s Joe Hernandez fumbled the second-half kickoff and was stopped at the Eskimo 4-yard line. A short punt by Fred Dunn gave the Stampeders good field position, and Jerry Keeling completed a 16-yard touchdown pass to Herm Harrison to put Calgary ahead 6-0. Larry Robinson, who missed 2 field goal attempts, missed the convert, but kicked a field goal later in the quarter to give his team a 9-0 lead. The Eskimos came back in the 4th quarter with field goals by Dave Cutler of 21, 53, and 20 yards. The second field goal was the longest ever kicked in a CFL post-season game to that time. Mr. Robinson was successful in converting Mr. McKinnis’s touchdown. Mr. McKinnis led all rushers with 79 yards on 19 carries. Alan Pitcaithley led the Eskimos with 27 yards on 8 carries. Mr. Harrison caught 4 passes for 76 yards, and teammate Gerry Shaw caught 4 for 72. Mike Eben led the Eskimos with 3 catches for 48 yards. Mr. Keeling and backup Larry Lawrence completed 13 of 28 passes for 199 yards, while Don Trull and Rusty Clark of the Eskimos combined to complete 12 of 26 for 141 yards. The Eskimos managed just 8 first downs and 161 yards net offense, while the Stampeders picked up 14 first downs and 249 yards net offense. 23,105 were in attendance at Clarke Stadium to witness the first CFL playoff game in Edmonton in 9 years.

George Blanda replaced injured starting quarterback Daryle Lamonica, drove the Raiders on a drive for the tying touchdown with less than 2 minutes remaining, and then kicked a 52-yard field goal in the final seconds to give the Raiders their win over the Browns at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

Emilio Eduardo Massera, 85
. Argentine military officer. Admiral Massera occupied several positions during a career of more than 30 years with the Argentine Navy, and was Commander-in-Chief of the Navy when he was one of the three members of the military junta that deposed President Isabel Martínez de Perón and ruled the country from 1976-1978. After the military dictatorship ended in 1983, Adm. Massera was convicted of human rights violations and sentenced to life imprisonment. He was pardoned by President Carlos Menem at the end of 1990, but imprisoned again in 1998. Adm. Massera suffered a debilitating stroke in 2004, and died after another stroke.

Quintin Dailey, 49. U.S. basketball player. Mr. Dailey was a guard with the University of San Francisco (1979-82), averaging 20.5 points per game and earning consensus First Team All-American honours in his last season. He was drafted in the first round by the Chicago Bulls, and played in the National Basketball Association with the Bulls (1982-86); Los Angeles Clippers (1986-89); and Seattle SuperSonics (1990-91), scoring 7,470 points (14.1 per game), with 1,307 rebounds (1.5 per game) and 1,188 assists (2.3 per game). He averaged 15.1 points per game during his first season and was named to the NBA's All-Rookie First Team. Controversy dogged his college and professional career: he was sentenced to probation in a plea bargain on a sexual assault charge in 1982 and admitted during the investigation to receiving payment for a no-show job. The former led to protests from women's groups and others against his addition to the Bulls, while the latter resulted in the USF's cancellation of its basketball program. Mr. Dailey violated the NBA's drug policy on two occasions, and in a game in 1985, had a ballboy bring him food on the bench during the game. He eventually matured, and worked as a recreation and cultureal program supervisor in Las Vegas, while serving as a basketball referee. Mr. Dailey died in his sleep from hypertensive cardiovascular disease.
