Embedded text or transcriptRat alley. Detour to Westminster. HAILE\' SELASSIE\' IN KENSINGTON. Special traffic arrangements have been made to permit shamefaced statesmen to dodge passing the Imperial lodgings.
EXPORTS TO U.S.S.R. The news that the Soviet Union is to have an Upper House has given rise to hopes that we might do a deal with our House of Lords.
Ma fois! HIST!.
DIRTY WORK ON THE ATLANTIC. "QUEEN MARY" - "NORMANDIE" RIVALRY. Suspicions are now openly expressed that the fog which spoilt "QUEEN MARY'S" maiden run was artificially produced by French sportsmen. Spies report that backers of "NORMANDIE" are already spreading dummy icebergs along the course for the return trip.
PROVINCIAL ACCENT DISAPPEARING. Wireless and Cinema blamed. OLD STYLE. "Zummer be i'cumin in zurr". NEW STYLE. "Aw, can it! You mean an anti-cyclone is approaching".
Gad, sir, Lord Londonderry is right. There can be no objection to Von Ribbentrop seeing Eden, if he uses a telescope. VIOLET RAY BY COL. BLIMP.
SEALED LIPS HONOURED. Now that Japan has erected a statue to the cats from whose skin banjoes are made, Low can at last unveil his statue to the seal from which we get the sealing wax for sealed lips.
