Caption: Nov. 3, 1948-----President Harry Truman happily waves an early edition of the Chicago Tribune that splashed the editors' wrong bet on the result of the Nov. 2, 1948, presidential election. In defeating New York Gov. Thomas E. Dewey, the Republican nominee, Truman also beat the pollsters and oddsmakers. Truman and his family had stopped at St. Louis Union Station two days later on their return trip from Independence, Mo., to Washington, and were met by about 13,000 happy supporters. Former congressman C. Arthur Anderson of Mehlville had a copy of the paper and passed it up to Truman, who mugged for the news photographers. (Louis Phillips/Post-Dispatch)
