Today -100: April 7, 1919: Of pigeons


Headline of the Day -100: 


Sounds like a heart-warming animated film, possibly from the National Film Board of Canada. Actually a carrier pigeon sent from an adrift Navy hydroplane who shows up in some guy’s room in the Blenheim Hotel in Atlantic City (as was the custom). Once Ensign Finch (!) is rescued, he calls the Blenheim and tells him “give that bird the biggest spread the hotel can stand!”

And somehow that’s the only thing I found noteworthy in today -100’s paper.
