Today -100: April 3, 1919: Clemenceau really likes that coat I guess


Sen. Warren G. Harding (R-Ohio) complains about the delay in settling the peace treaty. He says what the world needs is a clear interpretation of international law which the nations will enforce. “Under such an arrangement there would never be another world war unless some madman of the future again undertakes the domination of the world.” And what’re the odds of that happening, huh huh?

French Premier Georges Clemenceau says that the cost of clothing is so high that he won’t bother to replace the overcoat that would-be assassin Emile Cottin shot holes in. And he intervened in some behind-the-scenes way to get his coat back, even though it was being held as evidence against Cottin.

The German government refuses Bavaria’s demand for separate representation at the Peace Conference.
