Washington, D.C.: Published Daily under order of the President... by Committee on Public Information. 1918. Tabloid format. Quarto. 16pp. Old folds, paper toned but supple and not brittle, very good. Mostly dealing with WWI but with a front page plea from President Wilson for American's not to besmirch America's reputation (as Germany had besmirched theirs) by engaging in lynching and mob violence: "Germany has outlawed herslef... because she has ... made lynchers of her armies. Lynchers emulate her disgraceful example." Lynching had become epidemic in the first two decades of the 20th century, with the revival of the Ku klux Klan beginning in the early 1920s. .
