PRISON PITCHERS
All prisons in Great Britain are to be wired for talkies. By carefully excluding pictures thought to be punishment, it is hoped to popularise our prisons as they deserve.
ARABIC BROADCASTS
It is mooted that a minaret is to be added to the B.B.C. so that Reith may do his new duties justice.
PERSONAL EXPLANATION DEPT.
Certain sensitive persons, under the impression (profoundly mistaken, of course) that our comic strip HIT AND MUSS referred to themselves, threaten World War if it be continued. In the sacred cause of Peace therefore, this BUDGET makes the supreme sacrifice. In future this corner will be occupied by LOW'S OWN PRIVATE DICTATOR MUZZLER POSITIVELY NO CONNECTION WITH ANY OTHER ESTABLISHMENT Complaints dealt with in rotation
