The first knitting club for men!.
The first men's knitting club has been formed in Prague with the avowed object of 'propagating and teaching the art of knitting among men'.
The club has already 50 members, including business and professional men, young men, and old men with beards. The club meets regularly, when the atmosphere is filled with the steady clicking of the knitting needles as busy masculine figures we've socks, pullovers and other useful articles.
Photo shows, a bearded member of the club giving all his attention to the work in hand. His neighbours on either side seem equally determined to produce a nice even stitch.

SANDY, an 18 month old Golden Retriever, is placidly homeward bound as he is photographed
SANDY, an 18 month old Golden Retriever, is placidly homeward bound as he is photographed here, teeth clamped into the wicker basket which contains the family joint. Owned by Mr F C Clarke of Bedminster, Bristol, the dog is uniquely tempttion-resistant. mr Clarke sends him half a mile to the butcher shop, unaccompanied, for the family meat rations. And, although the succulent smell of raw meat hovers only an inch below his nostrils, Sandy has never yet stopped for refreshment on the homeward journey.
Whenever she went out in the car Mischief a three year old spaniel owned by Trisha
Whenever she went out in the car Mischief a three year old spaniel owned by Trisha Bingham, who lives near Eastbourne, came back crying. Because she loves sticking her head out of the window, her ears used to ache and her eyes run. Now, Trisha has found the solution- an old world war I style flying helmet. It keeps Mischief snug and warm, and the goggles stop dust getting in her eyes.
