Several members of the Set pointed out they had charged off a lot more than that to their companies, and still remained chairman of their boards. . The resolution read: "We. the members of the International Set, were shocked at the ouster of Sir Bernard Docker from the Birmingham Small Arms Com pany, maker of our Daimlers. Sir Bernard as well u Lady Docker have contributed much to the encouragement of food cheer and innocent international fun "Lady Docker's coverage ol the Monaco wedding, her pro motion of the game of marbles in England and her scientific discovery that mink was too hot to M used u automobile seat covers (she replaced hers with leopard skin) are things that the International Set will never forget We therefore call rt the iBirmihgham Small Arms Com pany to reconsider their harsh. undemocratic gesture and to put the Dockers back where" they belong.
