Evidence

Meeting held at 72 Shinfield Road Monday 23rd Feb. 1942. A. G. Joselin in the Chair <br/> 1. Minutes of the last meeting were read & signed. <br/> [...] <br/> 3. The chairman reported that the committee had considered how best to plan an evening of “discussion” and could think of no better way than to hold a Brains Trust in which all could take part. Members had been asked to send in questions and a list of 21 [only twelve are listed and discussed] was before us [...]. <br/> 4. After an interval for refreshment and for a general sharpening of wits, the fun began. It would be impossible without giving a verbatim report to do justice to the chopping of logic and the wise-cracking which took place. <br/>[...] List of Questions. <br/> 1). What are the criteria of classic & classical in the Arts? <br/> 2). Why do wild duck fly in V formation? <br/> 3). Is emotion responsible for physical sensation? <br/> 4). Do you think that the problems confronting the world at the present time could be more easily solved if all spoke the same language? <br/> 5.) What is the origin of: Limerick, Left in the Lurch, Sent to Coventry? <br/> 6.) Does the moon really affect the tides or do both obey some fundamental law? <br/> 7). Is it possible to teach every child to sing? <br/> 8). Who and where are the Prophets of today? <br/> 8). Why used it to be the correct thing for a bride to weep at her wedding? <br/> 10.) What animals sleep standing and why? <br/> 11). How do hawks hover? <br/> 12). At which incident in History would you most like to have been present? <br/> [signed by] S A Reynolds 31/3/42
