    Recruiting Item

    Hi guys,

    I found this in a box of old buttons. After seeing the title I picked it up and unrolled it. I was really surprised to see the "Dope" inside.

    In WWI, I think "Dope" was a word which meant the latest news at the time. I believe in WWII the word with the same meaning was "Gen". A word that has fallen out of use, with the same meaning, that I remember my parents using was "Scoop".
