It is important to have some sense of values today. The theft of an actress’s jewels may make agreeable reading – but there are more pressing problems. The Manchester Guardian follows the golden rule of ‘first things first’.
You would be wrong, however, if you thought that the Manchester Guardian deliberately avoided all that was light in favour of all that was heavy. On the contrary! The Manchester Guardian is well aware of the ludicrous side of life. You may discover with pleasure that this intelligent paper makes the best of both worlds; gay about trifles, serious about serious things.
