Today -100: October 11, 1920: Not government but anarchy

Former British Prime Minister Asquith says Current British Prime Minister Lloyd George’s speech yesterday condones reprisals, which yeah, but “At attempt to answer murder and outrage by terrorism is not government, but anarchy.”

The story is spreading that Russia is only making peace with Poland and Finland because the army demanded it, first sending a delegation of 12 men to Moscow, who were all shot, then a second delegation, who were all arrested, then a third delegation...

Headline of the Day -100:

Britain threatens to sink any Russian submarines it sees.

Headline of the Day -100:  

Threats to ginneries in Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina and Florida to refrain from ginning any cotton until the price rises above 40¢, and to cotton farmers to refrain from picking cotton ditto, appear in the form of notices and... match boxes. Are they Ku Kluxers? Maybe. Black cotton-pickers certainly think so.

Asked about race, Sen. Harding says “I have not come from older Ohio to tell you how to solve your peculiar problems of the South. ... That is too serious a problem for some of us to solve who do not know it as you do in your daily lives.” He claims to be in favor of equal rights but but but “I don’t intend that it mean that the white man and the black man must be made to experience the enjoyment of their rights in each other’s company.” He also wouldn’t use federal forces to ensure blacks in the South can vote. On his way home he is allowed to pretend to drive the choo choo train.

Prof. Pierre Delbet, a famous French doctor, has discovered a serum which cures appendicitis and will render operations for that ailment obsolete.
