A Spectator's Notebook

SCARCELY credible though this admission will sound to my friends, I have never been to Murray's Cabaret Club, and am not therefore well qualified to question Miss Keeler's statement that for years it has been the rendezvous for rich and handsome men out on the town.' Nothing, however, in a long and varied experience of night clubs in the world's capitals inclines me to accept `handsome' as a plausible description of their male patrons. The News of the World claims in a long, unctuous leader that 'we print the truth, and what we believe to be the whole truth.' If it believes that men in night clubs are for the most part handsome as well as rich, all I can say is that it will believe anything.
