International Moustache Crisis : Telegram from Hollywood to Berlin - Moving Picture Union protest against ban on Chaplin film because his moustache too like Hitler's. Suggest since Chaplin had moustache first, Hitler should either shave clean or grow beard. Blue-prints following.
Stop Press : Hitler has banned Mickey Mouse and Piccard's Balloon because they are too like Goebbels and Goering. Class distinction in the dust world : Unrest is growing about the Westminster City Council's idea of creating a new rank - that of "leading dustman".

Manufacturer, at the B.I.F.
