Embedded text or transcriptThe King who ran out of decorations : Unreported incident at Rome. Smart work at Whitehall : It appears that the proposal to destroy Whitehall Gardens was not just a piece of darned stupidity as was at first supposed. The idea is really a subtle dodge by the Office of Works to steal a march on Hitler by doing away with our beauty spots before he can drop bombs on them. Submarine Treason : Nazi seaside Rest Homes for Workers are proposed in Germany. Gestapo experts are being trained to hear what the Wild Waves are saying. Better conditions for Society Working Girls? : It is complained that the numerous functions and late hours of the "Season" are too exhausting for debutantes. This is indignantly denied by costumiers, photographers, florists, hairdressers and head waiters, who demand strong action against Red Mayfair.
8 hour day for Debutantes. Blimp the Bird-Man swoops : Gad, sir, Mrs. Van Somebody Else is right. The members of the Govt. should all write their autobiographies for #20,000 each and help pay for the new Defences with it.
