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
