  • The Herald also reports from India where it is said that at Amritsar a mob of 200 rebels who attacked the authorities were killed and at Ahmedabad a further 250 rioters were killed.
  • Page 5 of the Herald quotes The Grand Master Mason of Scotland, Brigadier General, R. G. Gordon Gilmour, of his wish to see the world: "girt about by a strong Masonic chain".

The Glasgow Herald – Apr 21, 1919
Probably no player reaps less success at goals from brilliant play in the outfield than Gallagher, the Celtic forward, whose three goals against Falkirk put a more favourable complexion on the chances of his club in the three remaining League engagements with Airdrieonians at home, Heart of Mid-Lothian and Ayr United away.
