Embedded text or transcriptThe old ship tie. "Queen Mary" ties are being worn on the maiden voyage. Naturally there will be also a song and an annual dinner.
The noble art with improvements. Fighting with steel chairs is the latest amusement at Fascist rough-houses. All political gangsters are now taking instruction.
Horse Show. The Show would have been a bigger success this year if Joan Bull had been able to get her thoroughbred through the traffic. Unfortunately the poor brute was run over by a taxi.
Sealed lips situation in Egypt. The removal of certain mummies is causing a first-class political row in Egypt- which only shows that politics are much the same wherever you go.
Fif-Love by Blimp. Gad, sir, Lord Cecil is right. After the "Queen Mary" the Clyde shipyards should now build a couple of colonies for Hitler.
Policemen's chests to be fitted with wireless. - (Official). "Aw, be a sport, copper, Twiddle yer buttons an' give us a bit of Enry All." Calling all cars.
