Embedded text or transcriptOLYMPIC TORCH ARRIVES. The real torch blew out and for a time a match had to be substituted. All difficulties were solved at last by using a cigarette butt.
MEANWHILE OUR OWN METEOROLOGICAL OLYMPIC GAMES PROCEED AS USUAL. Stormy. Wet. Fine intervals.
BOOM IN FOREIGN VISITORS. Special charabanc tours are being arranged for Londoners to see the Americans in the Strand.
DUBLIN THRUBBLE. Date-stamped on hins iggs laid in Oirish Free State are to be a patriotic green in future. Siveral hins have been arristed for laying iggs wid orange yolks.
"LONDON A CITY OF PROSPERITY" - \USays visiting millionaire.\u "Yeh, I been livin' at the Swellchester fer tree weeks an' I ain't seen one starving millionaire".
COURT CIRCULAR. Coronation Claims Court. Mr. Mussolini, claiming to exercise his hereditary function as Royal Sniffer of the Procession Route. (Under consideration by the Town Marshal).
SITUATION VACANT. WANTED New Cartoonist in place of the unspeakable LOW. Must be funny on the right side. No vulgarity except against Moscow. Good wages and free tickets to Turkish Bath. Apply Col. B. Gad, sir, Lord Mug is right. We should land a column of Moorish cartoonists to shoot Low down and save British cartooning.
