Embedded text or transcriptDance Disobedience Threat : The news that British conductors are returning from
U.S. laden with American dance tunes is causing rage. Patriotic dancers are arranging to
remain stiff until British tunes are played. Film Star Arrives: "I am over here on vacation
but I may make a pitcher for my old buddy Basil Dean", said Mr. William Shakespeare, the
famous film star just arrived from Hollywood. "I think your dames is swell", he added.
Watch for Mr. Shakespeare's articles, "Hollywood with the lid off", in the "Sunday Scum".
The Campbell-Blacks are Coming, Hooray, hooray: In view of the trouble our fliers always
have in finding a desert goods-train or something in which to finish their flights to the
Cape, the Air Ministry will insist that a spare camel be carried on this route in future. A
new cure for insomnia is shown at the Chemist's Exhibition - a powder which you put in your
bath. Testimonial : Dear Sirs - Before trying your powders my husband suffered severely
from insomnia in his bath. After one application he has now gone to sleep for good. Yours
sincerely, (Mrs) Isabella Smith "They laugh at it", said the grower of a white cucumber
bitterly at the Horticultural Exhibition. "The conservative British public don't want
novelties." - Pah! No enterprise! No imagination! Sooner we have a revolution the better.
Blue tomatoes Square potatoes Striped cucumbers. Col. Blimp's Lead : Daily Maze Gad, sir,
Lord Bunk is right. The Govt. are going over the edge of an abyss and the nation must march
solidly behind them.
