The Game had just begun, when Hydrogen scored two fast points

And thus it did remain, At Hydrogen 2 and Oxygen 1
Called because of rain.

When President Paul Doumer of France was assassinated in Paris in 1932,
newspapers differed in their versions of the event. This is from "Paris
was Yesterday: 1925-1939" by Janet Flanner, edited by Irving Drutman.
Taste varied as to his cry when he was shot down, the more popular
papers preferring his despairing "Oh, la la!," the graver dailies
favoring "Is it possible?" What few reported were his dying words:
"But what kind of chauffeur was it?" Having been told by his aides
not that he had been shot but that he had been struck by a taxi, the
President spent the last conscious moments of his life wondering how
how an automobile got into the charity book sale at the Maison
Rothschild, where his assassination occurred.
