  • Description

    IN A SPECTACULAR DEMONSTRATION OF A NEW LIFE JACKET DEVELOPED BY THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT'S BOARD OF TRADE, THE MINISTER OF STATE, MR ROY MASON JUMPED INTO THE RIVER THAMES IN LONDON TODAY (FRIDAY). AS HE LAY BOBBING IN THE CHILLY RIVER MR MASON ANSWERED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE NEW JACKET FROM AN ENTERPRISING JOURNALIST WHO FOLLOWED HIM INTO THE WATER.

    THE NEW LIFE JACKET, WHICH IS SAID TO BE A CONSIDERABLE ADVANCE ON THE EXISTING PATTERN, ENABLES A WRECK SURVIVOR TO SWIM, BUT ENSURES THAT HE FLOATS FACE UPWARDS IF HE BECOMES UNCONSCIOUS.

    AS AN EXTRA PRECAUTION DURING THE DEMONSTRATION, A FROGMAN WAS STANDING BY AS THE MINISTER, IN RED BATHING TRUNKS, JUMPED INTO THE WATER FROM A SIX FOOT (TWO METRE) HIGH PLATFORM.
