Today -100: September 27, 1922: Of Schrödinger’s king and kkkommies

The Irish Parliament is discussing a new Irish constitution. It rejects Gavan Duffy’s amendment to omit any mention of the British king.

The Irish government is thinking about creating a prison camp for Republican rebels on some island.

The AP reports that King Constantine says he will stay on the Greek throne “until the people say they want me no more”; Central News reports that he has abdicated. So the NYT just sticks the two contradictory reports in a single story and lets them fight it out.

Albert Einstein, who fled death threats in Germany last month, is going on a 6-month lecture tour of Japan.

Michigan authorities, after a raid on a Communist meeting in the woods, claim to have seized papers showing Communist plans to infiltrate unions . Okay, fine. And the Ku Klux Klan. Ummmmmm?
