Today -100: September 28, 1917: Of pacifists of the lowest order and Degas


Rep. “Cotton Tom” Heflin (D-Alabama) names 4 of the 13 congresscritters he suspects of being under German influence. One, Frederick Britten (R-Illinois) responds that Heflin is “a pacifist of the lowest order” (although Britten voted against the war). [Note: this article is supposed to be continued on page 9. It isn’t.]

The artist Edgar Degas dies. Ballet dancers are in mourning.
