Queen of Devastated Areas Charity Ball In view of the situation, Low is organizing a Ball
to help the dear Poor.. The usual Society exhibitionists will show themselves and perhaps
there may be a few shillings over expenses to give to something or other - but of course
the big idea is to show the dear Poor that everything is O.K. Difficult days at Fulham -

its Randolph Churchills, too. We Want Work Hard Times in Gigolo Industry Deputation calls
on Prime Minister to demand work or maintenance. Look up, Brother, look up Optimist waiting
outside an air-park hoping to be struck by a bar of gold. Col. Blimp throws his weight Gad,
