Ron Willis succumbed to a brain tumour in March The News saw fairly regular bi-monthly publication for 15 issues between November and April The first issue featured a cover which would become briefly the unofficial logo of The News drawn by Rickard from a Selfridges advert originally created by Bernard Partridge.

The price was raised slightly for 6 — which also saw the page count upped to 24pg — due in large part to rising postal and paper costs.

Indeed, this was the semi-official address of FT until that shop closed. Sieveking joined the FT team with 28 as co-associate editor, and writes, highlighting the intrinsic early difficulties in printing FT that that issue "was printed by an Israeli entrepreneur in northern Greece and shipped to London.
