Today -100: January 31, 1923: Of French tools, conferences, and fatties

Headline of the Day -100:  

After his announcement of a Nazi war against “the criminals of Nov. 9, 1918” (German pols who surrendered to the Allies), despite the ongoing occupation of the Ruhr, maybe not the best time for such an announcement. The costly rallies he just held raise suspicions that he’s being subsidized by the French... royalists?

Another reason the British are not best pleased with the French is that the French delegates at the Lausanne Conference say they’ll stay and continue negotiating with Turkey rather than walk out and end the conference at the expiration of the deadline Britain has declared.

Fatty Arbuckle says he’s done with acting. He’ll direct. The last films he made before his little legal trouble will remain unreleased.
