Embedded text or transcriptINSOMNIA AT THE WAR OFFICE
"The whole nation must sleep on its haversack" - Hore-Belisha
Dashed uncomfortable, especially when you've got a field-marshal's baton in it.
"GERTCHER!"
Many more of these mass meetings of thousands of ramblers, and we'll be having the cows organizing to demand a "free unspoilt countryside including national parks and full access to mountains"
SHAMATEURISM
"Are Royal Suites at best Hotels miraculously reserved for us?" "YES, SIRS." "Have unlimited supplies of raquets, wearing apparel and consumable goods somehow been placed at our disposal?" YES, SIRS" "Has Providence agreed to bestow on us #2 each per day pin-money 'for the duration'?" "YES, SIRS." "Then let the Amateur Championships begin."
Government is to facilitate hire-purchase of air raid shelters for house-holders above #250 level. That will ensure them one bomb a month from the instalment collector, anyway.
HOLIDAY STAGGERS AVERTED
Fearful of public ignorance about harmful effects of sun and air, Harley St. suggests that doctors should accompany holiday-makers to see they don't enjoy themselves dangerously.
IS HITLER A WAXWORK?
American stories of Hitler's death months ago inspire rumors that the being Chamberlain met at Munich was really a waxwork. Mr. C., it is suggested wouldn't know the difference, anyway.
SPRING SONG BY BLIMP
Gad, sir, Lord Punk is right. We cant't have the British Empire saved from defeat by Soviet Russia. Dash it, it would lower our prestige with the enemy.
