Today -100: May 17, 1922: Of conferences, bombings, and Greeks bearing cabinets, or something

The Genoa Conference has agreed to... hold another conference, next month in The Hague, dealing with Russia. The US refuses to attend, as was the custom, and France is threatening to boycott as well.

A partly completed, partly occupied building in Chicago is blown up. Tenants were warned to leave. Evidently a protest against the Landis award, in which Judge Landis allowed the building industries to cut pay.

I missed the fall of the Greek government a week or two ago. The Gounaris government fell due to its poor military record against Turkey. Now there’s a new cabinet, led by Nikolaos Stratos. Good luck with that, Nick!
