CAPTURED! LOW'S NEPHEW A SPANISH PRISONER RUPERT LOW'S OWN STORY Mr. Rupert Low, who flew to Santander to see Franco do in some Spaniards, and unfortunately got there in time for the Spaniards to capture him, sends a thrilling message to "TOPICAL BUDGET" "The Spaniards are behaving in a perfectly beastly manner, refusing to realise that I am a British sportsman, and have thrown me into gaol. I am having perilous adventures with fleas. What cads! Heaven preserve me from the Reds if this is the way they are going to treat the Upper Classes. I told the blighters that Colonel Blimp, who was a personal friend of King Alphonso, would send the Swiss Navy if I were not released. LATER - I have been released. Two cads came and kicked my pants and said "Get to ell out of it." Did you ever?
