Today -100: October 14, 1920: Of unself-suporting women, comforted bolsheviki, submarines, Boston pies, and debates

The US Navy releases a report on the 5 years (so far) of occupation of Haiti. While the report praises the many accomplishments imposed on Haiti, it notes that 3,250 Haitians were killed, including some summary executions.

Chicago election judges reject the voter registrations of some women because they are not self-supporting, but the decision is  overruled by the chief clerk of election commissioners.

Headline of the Day -100: 

Sinn Féin is supposedly trying to buy a submarine.

Headline of the Day -100:
