PUNCH, OR THE LONDON CHARIVARI.

VOL. 152.



JUNE 6, 1917.




CHARIVARIA.

It is rumoured that the Press campaign against young men of military age
engaged in Government offices is causing some of them many sleepless
days.

***

A correspondent writes to an evening paper to say that by his
thermometer the recent heat was a record for the year. We suppose it is
due to the example of the Censor in the matter of the Folkestone raid
that nobody appears to be able to keep a secret.

***

"A movement is on foot," says a contemporary, "to present the Italian
nation with a monument to SHAKSPEARE, to be erected in Rome." The
alternative of despatching Mr. GEORGE BERNARD SHAW to become a
naturalized Italian does not appear to have been so well received.

***

Lord COWDRAY recently presided at a lecture on "Flying after the War."
Most people will be content to wait till it comes by again.

***

Mr. KENNEDY JONES has declared that beer is a food. This should have a
salutary effect on those who have hitherto mistakenly regarded it as a
pigment.

***

An artist has been arrested under the Defence of the Realm Act for
sketching on the East Coast without permission. It is dangerous in these
times to be caught mapping.
