Embedded text or transcriptChristmas in Darkest Scotland - Where they think dancing is a devil of a business. : "Boy, wull ye no stop wigglin' yer ears in that sinful manner! D'ye want yer whole family t'be pit oot of' the Kirk! Anti-Crime Wave : 1st batch of Police College "graduates" is let loose on London to practice detecting. They're so keen, we hear, that already two have been arrested for suspicious behaviour. "I wonder how long it will take the British Association to evolve into a dog...?" Motorhood : Modern women tend to choose between a baby and a car - and choose the car" - complaint from British Association.
petrol New Traffic Signal : Interest is aroused by the experiment at Brighton of traffic policemen wearing boxing gloves. The A.A.A. claims a foul.
Stop
Stop. Snobbery in Football : The argument as to the "social superiority" of Rugby over Soccer crops up again. The only way to settle the question finally is to play it off with turned-up noses at Wembley. Col. Blimp's Daily Fume : Gad, sir, Hoare is right. At all costs Heile Selassie must be prevented from invading Italy to free the Italian slaves.
