    Background: CARTOONIST AND DESIGNER ROWLAND EMETT SEEMS TO HAVE EMPLOYED ALL OF HIS VIVID IMAGINATION IN DESIGNING AND BUILDING 'EMETT VISION OF THE POST OFFICE' - A LARGE WORKING MODEL DISPLAYED IN LONDON FEB 27, SHOWING HIS IDEA OF HOW THE POST OFFICE CONDUCTS ITS MULTIFARIOUS OPERATIONS.

    EMETT USED NO SMALL AMOUNT OF MAGIC IN PORTRAYING THE DIVER WHO "KNITS" CABLES FOR USE UNDER THE SEA; THE MESSENGER BOY WHO CARRIES A BANJO-PLAYING CAT BEHIND HIM; THE TELEPHONE MOVING BETWEEN A BIRD IN THE AIR AND THE WOMAN WHO HAD JUST DIALLED A LONG-DISTANCE CALL; THE TELEPHONE BOX THAT SHOOTS LIKE A ROCKET INTO SPACE.

    THIS BLEND OF DELIGHT BY EMETT WILL SOON BE ON SHOW IN VARIOUS PARTS OF BRITAIN STARTING WITH THE IDEAL HOMES EXHIBITION IN MARCH.
