Today -100: June 1, 1915: But all the same we're wanting more

The British government is suing the London Times for printing a letter by a retired Maj. Richardson (they’re also suing Richardson) under the Defense of the Realm Act (DORA). The letter called for conscription in Britain, saying that France is running out of military recruits. The prosecutor says this would give Germany a sense of confidence and depress the French and British. The case will be dismissed because the Germans already know about the French thing.

Germany admits having sunk the American oil tanker Gulflight 4 weeks ago. The commander of the U-boat that sank it says he thought it was British and didn’t notice the American flag until after he’d given the order to fire.

Germany calls out the last of its reserves – except in Bavaria, for some reason.
