SITUATION. \UFrom our\u \Ucorrespondent\u: The army has risen against Low's Spanish
Cartoon. Col. Blimp broadcasting a proclamation from the Hot Room said: "Fellow Colonels!
These dam Spaniards refuse in the most dastardly fashion to be saved by the Army from their
beastly Government just because they elected it. You can't have people telling the Army
what to do. Gad, it's disloyal to stop the Army from busting the whole show is destructive
of law and order, that's what it is. The whole thing's Bolshevism, of course. Everybody
knows the Bolshies want to destroy Democracy, therefore you have them in Spain defending
it....I mean ter say...what's that?...Well anyhow, its Bolshevism..\UHere the Colonel\u
\Uslipped in his own perspiration, and fell on a hot pipe, singing his\u \Uprinciples\u.
STOP PRESS Major Moron and the 49th Boneheads are attacking from the North. Low has retired
to the plunge-pool and is pretending to be a battleship.
