Embedded text or transcriptBitter class-hatred has been aroused at the building of the so-called "Flying
Drawing-room" for Lord Willingdon. The Govt. has been advised to build several Flying
Parlours without delay. Christmas share-out situation The annual meeting of the Slate-Club
Secretaries Union passed off as usual. Nobody turned up. Decency of the Stage The Killer
Girls Following upon the complaints of the Bishop of London about almost-nude chorus girls,
arrangements are in hand to produce this season at least one pantomime fit for Bishops.
Stars at the Stores The new practice of presenting variety turns inside the big stores to
amuse shoppers makes life more complicated than ever. Games Want to buy one like that. From
Col. Blimp's Angle - Gad, sir, Lord Gaspipe is right. We should send ten Divisions to the
Saar and take the enemy by surprise.
