Corruption at the Highest Levels!Or is it business as usual? Responsibility for maintaining the strategic fuel reserve for the Navy has been transferred to the Secretary of the Interior, Albert Fall. Two of those reserves are named Tea Pot Dome and Elk Hills. They are leased to two oil companies owned by Hall's friends. These leases are secret, no-bid contracts to people so friendly with Secretary Hall that they make regular gifts to him of cattle and satchels filled with money... lots of money... because that is what friends do. Right? (Sure, Wilbur.) These oil companies are supposed to pump out the oil and sell it. They will then use that money to build large tanks to hold oil for the Navy and to build an oil pipeline. For those not familiar with this process... this is called graft, kickbacks, and collusion. When the truth comes out, the stuff really hits the fan. Secretary Fall is one of President Harding's old poker buddies, so Harding is made part of the scandal. Law suits and a Senate investigation will uncover the corruption... mostly. Secretary Fall will become the first cabinet Secretary to go to prison for his actions while in office.
- I have no trouble with my enemies. I can take care of my enemies all right. But my damn friends...
- --President Warren Harding commenting on Secretary Fall and the Tea Pot Dome scandal. 
Your Eugenics UpdateForced sterilization laws in 7 states have been struck down by the Supreme Court because they only apply to institutionalized members of society such as prisoners, and mental patients. The laws also lack a means of appeal. Nevertheless, doctors are sterilizing people on their own authority, believing that criminality, alcoholism and promiscuity are hereditary in nature. In many cases, the patients believe that they are having an appendectomy or whatever vague lie the doctor can think of. Last year, Congress passed a new law limiting the immigration of Italians, Russians, Jews, and Poles. Immigration has dropped to a third of what it was last year. Dr. Harry Laughlin of the Eugenics Record Office has testified to Congress that recent immigrants are of inborn stock of poor quality. Dr. Laughlin will soon be given access to the US Census records, so there is plenty more to come from the Eugenics Record Office. Stay tuned. 
- If America doesn't keep out the queer, alien, mongrelized people of Southern and Eastern Europe, her crop of citizens will eventually be dwarfed and mongrelized in turn.
- --The Saturday Evening Post, 1923, in support of Dr. Laughlin. 
- Charles M. Schulz (Of the comic strip "Peanuts") 
- Doris Day (Big Band singer, and romantic comedy actress.) 
- Norman Lear (Producer of "All in the Family" and founder of "People for the American Way".) 
- George McGovern (During McGovern's run for President, Nixon operatives will be caught breaking into the DNC offices at the Watergate.)
