THE HOMOSEXUAL WHO WRECKED AN EMPIRE (Mar, 1960)
I just thought this was so ridiculous I had to post it.
THE HOMOSEXUAL WHO WRECKED AN EMPIRE
His queer pleasures drove him to treason—and started a world war!
By STEFAN v. S. RUBELCU
THE APARTMENT was a decorator’s dream, luxuriously tricked out with all kinds of feminine frills and heavy with the sickening sweet odors of perfume and incense. Almost daintily, the figure in the lush room touched a manicured finger to a baroque wooden floral decoration on the pearl-inlaid wall panelling. Noiselessly, a door slid open, disclosing a capacious closet crammed with obviously expensive female apparel.

I honestly have no idea what the purpose of this piece is. Besides being incredibly racist, it doesn’t really seem to have a point. Is it supposed to be funny? And no, I didn’t leave any pages out. That’s the whole thing.

New Fountain Pen Umbrella is Latest From Paris (Feb, 1929)
Just what I’ve always needed!
New Fountain Pen Umbrella is Latest From Paris
PARIS, the creating source of the latest fashions, sent this new fountain-pen umbrella to America recently. This very new device is merely a standard umbrella with a hollow handle. A top is screwed onto the handle, making it a container into which a regular fountain pen is placed. Truly it is a modern idea, for the carrying of a fountain pen is a problem that has vexed many of us. Women especially appreciate this idea because the average pen is too large to carry in the purse, while a small one is not large enough to be of practical value. There are no two items of personal property that are as subject to loss as the umbrella and the fountain pen. Here are both of them in the same combination. If one is lost so is the other. Of course with two such “loseable” objects together, the owner should be able to keep them at hand. The device cannot be distinguished from an ordinary umbrella.
