San Francisco Chronicle, November 10, 1916. Truer words were never typeset. “Jazz Merazz,” you long-dead proto-beatnik wiseass, I love you.
This won’t be the last item I poach from The People’s Safety Valve, but I don’t expect to surpass it.
Would the Stella in question be a work by Joseph Stella, do you suppose?
I’m particularly relishing the editorial injunction to write on one side of the paper only.
Hmm, interesting and reasonable hypothesis. The timeline certainly works for Joseph Stella. Because the word was in quotes, I assumed it was the title of some transiently famous or infamous painting–one of those “September Morn” type of deals.

Yes: beautiful. Valves are for control, after all.
