Today -100: January 22, 1913: Of gunboats, turkey trots, and bacon rinds

Evidently the real reason Wilson cancelled the inaugural ball was that ragtime dances such as the turkey trot and the bunny hug might be danced.

Name of the Day -100: The DC district court refuses to force the secretary of the interior to reinstate the members of the tribal council of the Osages who he removed, including Chief Bacon Rind.
