The first automobile race in Brazil, in São Paulo.
This race track had a length of 80 km, between São Paulo and Itapecerica, a race without accidents. Gastão de Almeida from Rio de Janeiro was heading the race, with his Dietrich-Lorraine, for a long time, and had an advantage of five minutes, to his direct opponent Dr. Silvio Penteado, who was driving a 40HP Fiat. Gastão had the misfortune that his oil tank broke, and Silvio could pass him, six kilometers before the finish, and thus claim the victory.
Murder of João Pessoa in Recife.
João Pessoa Cavalcanti de Albuquerque (1878-1930) was elected as governor of the state of Paraíba in 1928. His government proved to be productive for Paraíba: economic growth, less taxes, many constructions. Pessoa also was battling corruption, and therefore made many enemies. There were presidential elections in March 1930. President Washington Luís Pereira de Sousa had but forward Júlio Prestes, president of the state of São Paulo, as his possible successor. Vital Soares, president of Bahia, would then become vice-president. The opponent, supported by Minas Gerais, Rio Grande do Sul, and Paraíba, was Getúlio Dorneles Vargas, president of Rio Grande do Sul. João Pessoa would then become his vice-president. Pessoa was requested to support the government candidate, Júlio Prestes. He replied, telegraphed by Tavares Cavalcanti, with just one – legendary – word: NEGO! (I refuse!). However, Júlio Prestes won the elections. The opposition accused him of fraud at a large scale. The first signs of a popular rebellion were observed in Pincesa Isabel, Paraíba. The murder of João Pessoa by João Dantas was the extra spark to ignite the revolution. As a result, president Washington was ousted, and Vargas was elected for president. To honor João Pessoa, the actual flag of Paraíba was introduced. Black and red, with NEGO in white letters in the red field. The red color symbolizes the blood shed by Pessoa and the rebels in Paraíba. The capital – then called Parahyba – was renamed into João Pessoa.
A História do Politico João Pessoa
Arrival of the French vessels Régente, Sainte-Anne, and Charlotte at the Bay of Maranhão.
This small fleet (containing 500 men) was commanded by Daniel de la Touche, Lord de la Ravadière, who founded a French colony there: France Équinoxiale. The French landed on the island of Upaon-mirim, later renamed into Sant’Ana (today is the feast day of Saint Ana, see above). They quickly made contact with the indians of the neighboring island Maragnan (Maranhão). The French started the construction of Fort Saint Louis, named after the French king, Louis XIII. At the end of 1615, the French were ousted by the Portuguese.

Celebration of the first mass in the chapel of Morro dos Coqueiros – now the city of Aparecida (SP).
In 1717, three fishermen caught a headless wooden statue. Soon, they also caught the head of that statue. They also caught a large amount of fish. The statue was recognized to be of Our Lady of Conception. The statue was now called Nossa Senhora da Aparecida, and at the margin of Paraíba River, where the statue was found, a chapel was constructed. Later, this location was called Aparecida, now hosting one of the largest sanctuaries in the world.
Birth of soccer player and coach Telê Santana (1931-2006)
Telê Santana da Silva started his soccer career as a goalkeeper, but soon he played as a center forward, for many years at Fluminense. Telê then started his coaching career and became Brazilian champion with Atlético_MG from Belo Horizonte. He continued at Grêmio and Palmeiras, before he was contracted to coach the Brazilian national team. His tactics strategy – stressing on the attacking qualities – gained him worldwide fame. Brazilians still remember him as the coach who introduced ‘o jogo bonito’, attractive soccer. However, despite playing very offensive, Brazil was not successful during the World Cups of 1982 and 1896. Telê continued his career at São Paulo, and gained another Brazilian title and the Libertadores Cup and the Intercontinental Cup.

Inauguration of the first turbine of the hydro-electric power station of Samuel – Candeias do Jamari – RO
The construction was started in 1982 and was projected to finish four years later. Due to lack of funding, the 216 MW power station was ready in 1996 only. In the presence of president Fernando Henrique Cardoso, the power station was officially inaugurated on April 12, 1997. However, the first turbine was inaugurated eight years earlier. The power station is located at the Jamari River, an affluent of the Madeira River. Energy is provided for nearby capital of Rondônia, Porto Velho, and – since 2002 – for Rio Branco, capital of the state of Acre.
