Fog of War (Rumors, Propaganda and Just Plain Bullshit) of the Day -100: Supposedly, bands of armed Germans, possibly sailors escaping internment, crossed into Brazil from Argentina. There have also been stories about the Hamburg Colonization Company intending to establish a colony of Germans – and only Germans – in Brazil. Pretty sure this is an old plan that never got off the ground.
The proposed Mexican constitution is rather interesting.
Headline of the Day -100:
Congresswoman-elect Jeanette Rankin says she doesn’t feel bound to follow the Republican Party leaders. She denies that she plans to introduce a women’s suffrage measure, but says she’ll support one if someone else does. Ditto prohibition.
The State Department shows Woodrow Wilson the Zimmermann telegram.
