France says it will ban all exports from the Ruhr to Germany proper. So that’s most of Germany’s steel and iron, to say nothing of coal.

In Essen, Germans throw stones at a restaurant where French and Belgian officers are eating. A movement is growing to refuse service to Frenchies & Belgies, who are threatening to close all establishments which don’t serve them.

Some idiot says he’s invented an automobile with legs.
