Embedded text or transcriptTHIS IS RECOGNITION WEEK
One lump or two, duce?
Our Rome spy reports that Lady (Austen) Chamberlain, on behalf of the British Empire, has already recognised Jibouti, Suez, Tunis, Corsica, Nice and what-have-you.
Mr. C. is showing signs of recognising the existence of "Little Father" Stalin. Stalin, of course, has known Mr. C. all along.
French foreign minister Bonnet saw himself in a mirror, recognised himself and fainted dead away.

A.R.P. CRIPPS-PROOF TUNNEL UNDER TRANSPORT HOUSE
Work is now completed and Trades' Unionism's Socialist principles are being rushed immediately 60 feet underground where they will be placed on ice until 1945
So what, Cripps?
So ya wouldn't recognise me, huh?
Financial Paper
Death duties increase suggested
BOLSHEVISM, THAT'S WHAT IT IS, BOLSHEVISM!
Gad, sir, Pitt-Drivels is right. This billeting of children idea is damned nonsense. The poorer classes must be lacking in decent family instinct not to want their brats blown up with them. BLIMP
Some people will not sign for the free A.R.P. steel shelter because this betrays to the neighbors the fact that their incomes are under #250 p.a.
