Astragal is indebted to Jack, the new vehicle from magazine hero James Brown, for a feature on Prince Charles. Robin Cooper writes spoof letters to dignitaries and publishes their replies. This time, Cooper tries out Prince Charles: 'I am a keen amateur architect and I believe that I have what it takes to become your personal advisor on all things architectural. I don't ask for much, just a desk, some paper, a couple of pencils, and food and lodgings for my family.' Cooper also encloses his designs for a new Dogs'Home, complete with a 'magnificent K9 mosaic roof '. One Henrietta Rolston replies for the Prince, regretting that he is unable to comply. Undeterred, Cooper tries again, moaning that he has resigned from his current employ as a trampoline tester for Hilliard Gymnastics Supplies. 'I am now out of work and a laughing stock in the trampolining world, ' he writes, along with a final plea for Charles to reconsider. He doesn't.
