Today -100: February 12, 1921: Better than a pail of warm spit

Harding’s presidential pay will be $75,000 a year, the same as Wilson’s (although he’ll have to pay income tax, which Wilson did not). However Congress raises the vice president’s pay from $12,000 to $15,000 for Coolidge. These days, the president gets $400k and the veep $235,000.

The NYPD raid a dance at the Odd Fellows Hall, arresting 600 (!) for indecent dancing or spectating at said dancing. Two cops acquired tickets through some sneaky means to the private event.
