Embedded text or transcriptTHE CRISIS - WAR NARROWLY AVERTED
LOW SEWN UP IN BAG. Apologies are tendered for technical defects in this page consequent upon measures taken by the Gobbels-Grandi-Beaverbrook Axis to prevent Low having his say about Chamberlain. It being difficult to draw in a bag the cartoon on the right has been kindly executed in Low's place by the Editor of The Times".
God bless you, Duce, England is proud of you!
DISCLAIMER TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
The Mussolini advertised in the Press at length all this week as being "delighted" is emphatically NOT Mussolini, Low's pup.
WEST END WHIRL
GLAMOUR GIRLS RESIGN
The Swellchester Hotel announces that its American glamour girl team is to be replaced by a British lot. Fears are expressed that the novelty of the change will daze customers.
NEW TRAFFIC PERIL
Delay in making a move to "stagger" the traffic during rush hours is having evil effects at the L.P.T.B. "Either stagger our traffic" says Lord Ashfield, "or Frank Pick and I go staggered ourselves."
MUZZLER THE DICTATOR
YES, HE TIGHTENS HIS BELT.
Guns or Butter Tighten Belts 4 Year Plan
Gad, sir, Mr. Poliakoff is right. Eden is one of those sloppy idealists that want everything on a sound basis, while Chamberlain is a hard realist who will trust anybody. TRIUMPH OF BLIMP
