Today -100: May 10, 1917: The woman who wastes a crust wastes a bullet

The British Food Ministry issues some slogans:

Former ambassador to Mexico Henry Lane Wilson wins his libel suit against Harper’s Weekly for correctly reporting about his complicity in the Huerta coup and murder of Pres. Madero. He is awarded six (6) cents.

Herbert Hoover wants prohibition introduced as a war measure to conserve grain. He visits Pres. Wilson to talk food policy, but tells reporters he doesn’t want to be a food dictator. “The man who accepts such a position will die on the barbed wire of the first entrenchments.”

Only 30 of 20,000 NYC teachers refuse to sign the loyalty oath.
