Today -100: November 10, 1922: Of disappointments, coercion, Nobels, and wet enthusiasm

Headline of the Day -100:  

Headline of the Day -100:  

The Nobel Prizes in physics for 1921 and 1922 are given, respectively, to Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr.

32 black people are arraigned for protesting the Fulton School in Springfield, Ohio, which has just opened to educate all the black students of the district. Stones were thrown, guards pointed guns, etc.  The Civil Rights Protective League will win an injunction against the school, since Ohio laws did not sanction Jim Crow schools. The school board will then fire all the school’s black teachers to insure no white students had to suffer the humiliation of being taught by a black teacher, and they’ll allow white parents to transfer their children out, which almost all of them will.

The New Jersey Board of Education rejects the appeal of a couple of fathers to overturn Berlin Township’s rule requiring vaccinations for pupils. One of the fathers has threatened to shoot any doctor who tries to vaccinate his child.

Mussolini will privatize the railroads, telephone and telegraph systems (all of which suck).

The Association Against the Prohibition Amendment says if the D’s and R’s refuse to accept the people’s wishes, it will be forced to run independent wet candidates for Congress in 1924. They say there are 205 wets in Congress; the Anti-Saloon League counts 140. 

Tomorrow’s op-ed:

The United American Lines transfers the registry of 2 of its ships from the US to Panama to avoid the new rule about not carrying alcohol.

Supposedly Portugal stops a revolution.
