Today -100: September 7, 1913: Of phonetics, taxidermy, and jaywalking

The NYT is perplexed by reports of George Bernard Shaw’s next play: “‘Pygmalion’ has no sex interest, and it is literally a play on phonetics.”

Headline of the Day -100 (I think this is the NYT’s Sunday magazine section): “One Calling Which Has Not Yet Been Invaded by Women.” Taxidermy.

Woodrow Wilson, out for a walk, is nearly run down by a street car as he jaywalks. A cop jumps in front of the trolley and gets it to stop in time.
