For justice sake

From The Call, paper of the British Socialist Party, February 26 1920

AT THE Coalville Petty Sessions the other day a nine-year old boy was sentenced to four strokes of the birch for - stealing an egg.

That impossible wage

THE MOST expensive wrap of the season is said to have been purchased by Mary Miles Minter, an actress, for £7,000, or nearly 30 times the annual income of a docker working six days a week, with-out a break throughout the year at a wage (16 shillings a day) which, according to the employers, would cripple the transport industry.

[Note: 16 shillings = 80p]
