Today -100: May 1, 1917: Of flags


The French commission to the US is really pushing for the US to dispatch troops as soon as possible. They think the sight of American flag will seriously demoralize the Germans.

The Germans are being reassured by their government and newspapers that the US will only send money to the Allies, not troops. But what about flags?

The NYT says the Russian government was right to let “the German agent” Lenin give speeches which lost him sympathy instead of making a martyr of him by imprisoning him.
