Today -100: May 21, 1922: I loved deeply, but in loving I may have erred

Al Smith won’t run for US Senate on the Democratic ticket if William Randolph Hearst is the D. candidate for governor.

Charles Hall is still leading in the vote-counting for the Republican primary for governor. The NYT annoyingly says, with no follow-up whatsoever, “Never before in Oregon’s history has religion entered so strongly into a political campaign.”

Rudolph Valentino is arrested for bigamy. “I loved deeply,” Rudy says, “but in loving I may have erred.” Given that the second marriage was performed in Mexico, I don’t see where the LA district attorney’s office even has jurisdiction.

A 19-year-old black man, Joe Winters, accused of attacking a white woman is burned to death in Conroe, Texas. And a 60-year-old black man, Mose Bozier, accused of a similar crime, is hanged by a mob near Allentown, Texas.
