12 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE WEDNESDAY, MARCH 8, 1939 NAZIS MAKE HUMOR CLAIMS Goebbels Conducts j Contest to Prove Fun Still Exists BERLIN, (#)--This joke won $40 Wednesday as the best submitted in Propaganda Minister Paul Joseph Goebbels' month- long contest to prove there is humor in nazi Germany: "I won't perform in this costume," says a scantily-clad girl wearing a pre-war army helmet and saber to a paunchy male who is scratching his head in astonishment.- "Why not," the man asks. "Does one see too much?" "Rubbish, you old fool," the girl replies, "--too little!" Ilustratcd Omi Work Dr. Goebbels' newspaper Der Angriff published only the work of'the winner, a humble construction worker who illustrated his three jokes with his own handiwork. Dr. Goebbels started the contest after he expelled five cabaret artists from the reich's culture chamber--meaning t h a t they might no longer follow their profession in nazi Germany--for quips about the national socialist regime. Says Humor Still Lives Goebbels declared that "nazi- dom will not be derided." The contest was started because ol apparent fears that the action against the entertainers might give the impression that there is no humor in Germany. A second winning cartoon published Wednesday showed a woman wearing only a blouse. A little dog stands between her and a high-collared, bearded, bespectacled man. She: "Why, you haven't seen my new dress! I bought it on the installment plan." He: "I suppose you're wearing the first installment" Joy Is Robust" The . third cartoon shows the legs of a number of women passersby. In the foreground is a fat pug dog who accosts a lean, long ~~ Dachshund. "Good gracious!" says that fat pug. "You've certainly reduced!" · The emaciated "sausage dog" replies: "Three weeks ago I was sold to a vegetarian-" Der Angriff remarked that "joy is robust. Fun seems widespread/' C. I. O.
