November 1, 1939: Front page of The Lethbridge Herald, Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.

Note the story in column 8: "U.S. Vessels Rush To Aid Of G.B. Ship"
(The story is about the SS Coulmore. I have no idea if Coulmore sent such a signal, but Coulmore left Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Oct. 28 and arrived at Southend, England on Nov. 16th. There were no German submarines operating off the U.S. coast in Oct. 1939, so there is no possibility that this ship was attacked by a German U-boat, however there is one interesting fact about the story. USCGC Bibb WPG-31 is sighted as one of the ships which responded to the distress signal, and when Coulmore was torpedoed on Mar. 10, 1943, Bibb was one of the ships which picked up survivors.)

November 1, 1939: Front page of the Butte Montana Standard, Butte, Montana.

Note the story in column 6 at bottom: "Jews Leave Vienna For Reservation In Former Polish Area"
(Notice how in the story it says "local authorities have told the Jewish community there that Vienna must be Jew Free by March 1. In the Nazi vernacular it was called Judenfrei. Also note that the Butte Montana Standard did not carry any story about the British White Paper.)

November 1, 1939: Front page of The Hammond Times, Hammond, Indiana.

Note the headline: "U-Boat Attack Near U.S."

(Click on the image for a readable version.)


November 1, 1939: Front page of the Biddeford Journal, Biddeford, Maine.

(They also have the U-Boat attack as a top story. This must have frightened a number of sailors and their families. I would like to point out that this was not "fake news" as we know it today, it was inaccurate news based on the information given to the press, who would have had no reason to disbelieve the story.)
