RUSSIANS SINK TURKISH WARSHIP
IN BLACK SEA
One of the more interesting (to me as a retired newspaper reporter) aspects of doing this project was spotting the differences in current style (the Associated Press Stylebook is The Bible) and how it differed almost 100 years ago.
Back then, war ship was two words. Today it is warship.
I found lots of similar style changes and always chose to leave them the way they were written at the time, just to "preserve" the flavor.
For example, there is a story about Rickenbacker recruiting racing car drivers and mechanics to join the Air Service. He calls them "mechanicians," which totally befuddles my spell check, but I left it as it was because it is authentic to the time period I appreciate anyone reading through these stories and posting any typographical errors they find here. It would be a shame to see any carried over into RoF. Please post any you spot.
This was a style change and I decided it was a "stet" (leave it as is)
