Inexpensive Gallantry. Soviet Russia. "Hark ye, maiden; fearest thou a brutal attack from yon Polish villain?" Lithuania. "Not greatly, fair sir. We are agreed that the wise men of Geneva shall compose our difference." Soviet Russia (rattling sabre). "Then will I place my trusty sword at thy service, and engage to fight to the death in thy defence." [The above generous offer of armed assistance was immediately followed by a proposal, on the part of the Soviet delegation at Geneva, that all armies, navies and air forces should be instantly abolished.]
