Embedded text or transcriptPOSTAGE STAMP ACADEMY Complaints against the inartistic new stamps may be met by
adopting the German plan of making occasional special issues to give artists their fun.
Designs by Munnings, Epstein and the Surrealist school await decision. SOVIET EMBASSY
STOLEN BY OGPU ENTIRE STAFF KIDNAPPED This is all denied by everybody concerned, the big
cheats. But the fellow who phoned us the story had a voice just like Stalin's, so we print
it. FIRST WITH THE NEWS! FLAG DUMPERS DITCHED Cunning measures are to be taken to defeat
the dumping of cheap Jap-made Union Jacks for the Coronation. On the day before the
celebrations the Earl Marshal will unfurl an official slightly-altered version which will
render all the Jap stuff obsolete ONANONANON UPANUPANUP NEW PREMIER Mr. Baldwin's inertia
having now been confirmed, Mr. R. MacDonald has retired from private life and is presiding
at Downing St. again. Returning Ministers will be sworn in, and at, immediately. Nerts! not
enough human interest! Can't we make de sailors goils and have de enemy fall in lurve wit

certain film magnates, soon to be made Admirals, will shoot enough epics to put the whole

withdrawal from the Empire. COL BLIMP'S SPLENDID ISOLATION
