House of Comics
The Prime Peanut has been giving much concern. Accused by a colleague of having said things in 1900-30 which came within his own Sedition Bill, he wrapped himself in the Union Jack and tried to hoist himself and Baldnob up a flagpole. The worst is feared.

Postage Revenue
The P.M.G. is said to be contemplating new stamps, departing somewhat from tradition and according more with the times. Two designs under consideration represent respectively PEACE ON EARTH and THE REVIVAL OF INDUSTRY
The Derby field this year is small and pretty poor. On the whole Joan's entry "Public Enemy No. 1" should finish well if he doesn't waste time looking for traffic lights.
Warning this meat is foreign
Mussolini protests strongly against the draft Order that imported meat be printed all over with Government notices. Dam it, there's nothing more indigestible than Government notices.
Lady Hilton Young: "We must economise water as the authorities suggest, by using it more than once. Take this and after you have washed up, done the laundry and watered the garden let me have it back because Sir Hilton wants to have a bath."
Col. Blimp speaks out

Big Fight - Special Broadcast
Jack Reith (100 lbs.) B.B.C. Tornado v Jeff Dickson (1000 lbs.) Box Office Cyclone
Jack says: "The fight is over before it starts. I win on foul. He hit me too high.
Jeff replies: "I win. K.O. You can see by the way Jack shapes up he is already unconscious."
