Town Topics: Reluctant governments seem determined to maintain the burdens on the backs of the people to the last possible moment. Bleak House has been our lot for years. We reasonably expect a little more comfort now.

Also in the news: Exeter Road Infants’ School held a harvest service on Wednesday afternoon. The harvest loaf, in the form on a sheaf of corn, was made by Mr Griffiths.

Advert: Mitchell’s have lovely pineapple cream rolls in their window today. Only 1/6 each!

More: Each week we bring you clippings taken from the Journal, printed on this week in 1944. To see more from the War Journal archives, join our Facebook nostalgia group, Devon Memories.
