The Bemidji Daily Pioneer, June 8, 1917
In the early 20th century, the Bemidji Daily Pioneer used headlines in a way that was not common to other small-circulation newspapers of the era. Headlines were big and bold, and articles often included multiple headlines of various sizes. This issue, with its large, full-page headline -- "America Preparing for 3 Years War" -- mixes war stories about General Pershing and American aviators in France, with more local stories about a miners' strike and Bemidji's Fourth of July celebration.
