Today -100: June 8, 1915: Of red-handed monks

German anti-Semitic newspapers want to restore the ban on Jewish army officers – after the war.

Gen. Pancho Villa may have been decisively defeated.

It mysteriously comes out that there is/was a secret treaty between Germany, Austria and Romania under which Romania can’t go to war with them until 1920.

A National American Woman’s Suffrage Association conference votes against militant tactics such as the recent “heckling” of Pres. Wilson and opposing Democrats in general for opposing a federal suffrage constitutional amendment.

The German occupation authority demands that 500 Belgians volunteer to work at their arsenal in Malines. None do. As punishment, the city’s entire business traffic by rail and canal is shut down.

Headline of the Day -100: 

Italian authorities arrest five monks for signaling military intel by way of reflectors from the windows of their monastery across the Adriatic to Austria.
