The syndicated columnist Roy K Moulton describes NY Health Commissioner Copeland's kissing restrictions a war sacrifice, and kissing through a handkerchief as exciting as a Bevo bun (pretzel). Holding hands at Coney Island gets you a police warning, kissing a night in jail.  The Boston Red Sox win the first game 1-0 of the World Series over the Chicago Cubs at Comiskey Park, Babe Ruth gets the victory.

Roy K. Moulton, "On the Spur of the Moment," East Mississippi Times, Starville, Mississippi, September 6, 1918. Page 1, Column 4.
