Embedded text or transcriptHEAVY DOINGS IN WALL ST. Queues now forming for the periodical suicide festival to celebrate the stability of the capitalist system.
HEAD WORK BY DUFF COOPER Excitement runs high among the natives on the Mediterranean about the unusual hat worn by our visiting First Lord of Admiralty, the report having got around that it was a new type of defence against air attack. British prestige is rising
GAS MASKS FOR BABIES (OFFICIAL) Well, that's one good idea Inskip has had.
IMPROVEMENT IN RECRUITING Consequent upon special inducement. In future Mr Hore-Belisha will have his photo taken with each new recruit, personally.
FREE STATE PRISIDINT "The new President of the Free State must be outside and above party politics" says Mr. de Valera, narrowing his choice down to Low's infant nephew Mick and Mrs. Murphy's pig.
Gad, sir Mr. Amery is right. Dash it, we will do anything to ensure peace - except give away colonies likely to be of use to us in the next war.
