Embedded text or transcriptINSIDE INFORMATION STRAIGHT FROM THE HORSES MOUTH (sneering acknowledgments to our ludicrous contemporaries)
Lord Beaverbrook's hairdresser reports that six jockeys were shot while attempting to escape yesterday. It is likely now that the danger of a Derby this year may be avoided
A pact is being arranged between ousiders to kick the favourite in the breadbasket
Hot tip is that the owners will take it to Geneva.
DANTE'S INFERNO REVISITED. "The morals of Ipswich have fallen as low as they possibly can," says an expert, protesting against the town's "SILLY SYMPHONY" cinema shows for children.
"HARD TIMES IN WEST END" "CUT-PRICE NIGHT-CLUBS" - News Heads
"My word, Millie, this must be good ginger-beer at a bob a bottle."
"WOMEN HOWL FOR THE CAT" The ladies of the Tory Conference who rejected Sam Hoare's proposal to abolish flogging make it obvious that the perpe trators of "certain offences" are not the only ones that need medical attention.
ADVENTURES OF ADOLF, THE A.R.P. GOAT
Low reads that the Government tests it's shelters by trying to blow up goats inside 'em, so he has engaged a goat to test his own. Here we see Low impressing on Adolf that we've got to be prepared. Adolf has made a bad start by eating Low's gas-mask. (continued)
BLIMP TO WIN OR A PLACE
Gad, sir, Horace Wilson is right. Dashed selfish of the Russians to insist on the Pact being mutual. Hang it, it's not THEIR peace we're out to ensure.
