Embedded text or transcriptWar Pictures (Exclusive) : Italian Mission of Mercy - Many slaves have already been released by humane Italian troops. Chiefs Submit : Gen. Bono winning over native chiefs by crowning them Emperors of Abyssinia, if no one else happens to be using it. Duce's Sons Safe : The Mussolini boys, Spaghetti and Macaroni, in their new armour-plated anti-atrocity uniform. The keys are in Rome with Puppa. New Road Construction through wilds : Speed trials being taken on the new cinder tracks, both going and coming. You never know.
Caporetto Avenue. Shirley Temple Menace : Shirley Temple films are censored at Geneva. Demoralizing to World Statesmen, probably.
Now showing The Mussolini- Mussolinin Crisis - GOLDERS GREEN - In view of grave misunderstandings, Signor Gaydog, Low's - Mussolini's mouthpiece, announces that recent insults were intended to refer to the Italian Duce not as a human being, but only as a big stiff, the big stiff. Tension has been relaxed. Important Announcement : Guy Fawkes Day to be held on Nov 14th this year - Mr Baldwin in the Chair (Official)
Who abolished unemployment? Give yer 3 guesses.
O my Friends
honesty Street Lighting : More lamp-posts needed, say the experts. Lit-up streets for lit-up citizens - that's what's needed. Col. Blimp's warning : Gad, sir, Lord Pipsqueak is right. Unless we withdraw our Fleet from the Mediterranean, Mussolini will withdraw the Mediterranean from our Fleet.
