old Boulter's Lock, despite a lady's apprehensions of getting her bustle blown up with
an Irish bomb at any moment. 5TH COLUMN EXERCISES A dummy of Stalin is to be erected at
Headquarters into which pins may be stuck by our local Nazis who can't control their
feelings at recent political developments CENSORED BOOKSTALLS LTD Weslyan Times
Newsagents suggest a Govt. censorship of naughty periodicals. CUPID: "Got any papers
about lurve?" ATTENDANT: "Apply to the Govt. Stationery Office, Statistics Department."
OXFORD GROUP THE CHANGING OF A.P. HERBERT "It's awful, Dr. Buchman! The more we plead
with him the more he goes like this!" "Oxford" Group my foot ADVENTURES OF ADOLF THE
A.R.P. GOAT Mystery deepens. Adolf's unwillingness to enter shelter followed by strange
noises from below suggest an invasion by big game. Musso "pointing" like anything. Must
get to the bottom of this. Gad, sir, the DAILY WRETCH is right. The grave danger of
making an alliance with Russia is that we may drive Mussolini into joining the Axis.
