Today -100: April 23, 1919: Firm for Fiume

Headline of the Day -100: 

Iowa gives the presidential vote to women.

Headline of the Day -100:  

The Times is really going big on these tabloid-y headlines lately. Romanian troops have invaded Hungary to help overthrow the Hungarian Soviet Republic.

The NYT prematurely proclaims the fall of the Bavarian Soviet Republic in Munich.

Germany is supposedly making secret preparations for a plebiscite on the peace terms, which the government thinks is a nifty way of avoiding responsibility for signing them.

The nationalization of Russian women, who must register at the Bureau of Free Love, is suspended in one northern Russian... okay, was anyone actually buying this “nationalization of women” bullshit?

  1. So is the NYT article about the Free Love place in Russia supposed to be anti communist? Because if I was a young man about a hundred years ago I would have been a communist before the end of the article and been trying to figure a way there.

  2. I dunno, the Bureau of Free Love sounds like a lot of paperwork.
