Embedded text or transcriptHollywood reports that the purity movement is driving the tough eggs and hot
dames of the screen to produce the wholesome works of Dickens. The Old Curiosity Store
Based upon a story by C. Dickens Schnozzle Durante and Mae West as Grandfather and Little
Nell Inferiority Complex It was unwise of the Minister of Transport to tell that each car
parked in London covers a space worth #20,000. Now few motorists feel rich enough to go at
less than 60 per hour. Crime Detection in the Future Scientific study is to be intensified
at Hendon Police College. It is intended that science must play a greater part in police
work Swag Move on there! Dont disturb our studies! Yes, Dr. Blue-bottle, I think we may
conclude that all the tests go to prove that this is abloodstain Quite so, Professor
Flatfoot. Traffic Secrets (Exclusive) The alleged alterations to Trafalgar Sq. `roundabout'
are only a `blind' for Belisha's latest idea. London statues are to be given swivel bodies
and used as traffic signals. Experiments are being carried out secretly on Charles 1st.
Col. Blimp's Douche - Gad, sir, Mr. Churchill is right. These Indians don't understand
Patriotism. They'll be wanting to run their country themselves next .
