REVOLUTION AT OUR TURKISH BATH. BLIMPS RISE = GRAVE SITUATION. \UFrom our\u \Ucorrespondent\u: The army has risen against Low's Spanish Cartoon. Col. Blimp broadcasting a proclamation from the Hot Room said: "Fellow Colonels! These dam Spaniards refuse in the most dastardly fashion to be saved by the Army from their beastly Government just because they elected it. You can't have people telling the Army what to do. Gad, it's disloyal to stop the Army from busting the whole show is destructive of law and order, that's what it is. The whole thing's Bolshevism, of course. Everybody knows the Bolshies want to destroy Democracy, therefore you have them in Spain defending it....I mean ter say...what's that?...Well anyhow, its Bolshevism..\UHere the Colonel\u \Uslipped in his own perspiration, and fell on a hot pipe, singing his\u \Uprinciples\u.
STOP PRESS Major Moron and the 49th Boneheads are attacking from the North. Low has retired to the plunge-pool and is pretending to be a battleship.
