Note the report in column 4: "G.B.S. Wants To Stop Bombs"
(George Bernard Shaw wants the British and Germans to come to an agreement to stop bombing cities. Apparently, the eugenicist Shaw, who believes that you should “justify your life” or you should be killed, now wants to stop the destruction of cities. Since I have not been able to find a copy of the article he wrote, it is hard to say what side he is on, the British or German. His political philosophy was aligned closer to Hitler than Churchill. He was a rabid eugenicist who advocated for the deaths of the inferior. The only difference between his philosophy and that of the Nazis was, the Nazis put theirs into action.)

Note the report in columns 1-2: "Russians Smash Nazi Convoy - 13 Transports, 2 Destroyers Sink In Baltic"
(Russian claims getting more absurd, but the good thing for the communists was, there was no way to prove the story wrong. Every word was a lie. In fact, no German destroyers were sunk in all of July of 1941. And I can find no record of 13 German transports, or even any, being sunk at this time.)
