1. Suffragists marched in some silly parade in March. Can you believe they want the right to vote? LOL, good luck, ladies!
2. The Mona Lisa, which was stolen 2 years ago in 1911, was finally found. Vincenzo Peruggia, an Italian patriot, had stolen it with the intent to return it to an Italian museum.
3. The newspaper New York World published some weird puzzle thing called a “crossword.” It’s probably not gonna catch on.
4. Charlie Chaplin entered the film industry, signing a $150-per-week contract with Keystone. Get that paper, honey!
5. Speaking of film, The Squaw Man, Hollywood’s VERY FIRST MOVIE, was made this year. It’s definitely gonna be a huge hit next year in 1914.
6. Woodrow Wilson was elected president! So fetch. He’s totes gonna be a two term prez and win the Nobel Peace Prize someday.
7. Gideon Sundback patented a hookless fastener called a “zipper.” Yeah, whatever. Buttons FTW!
8. Paul Émile Chabas tried to pass off some scandalous pornography as “art” in a Chicago gallery window, and enjoyed great success from the scandal. What a flop.
The scandalous piece of art was called “September Morn.”
