Malayan Welfare Fund Stamps

From Our Own Correspondent

PENANG, Mon.

ATTRACTIVELY designed Malayan welfare fund stamps have made their appearance in Penang and are finding ready sales at banks and business houses.

The stamps are in four different colours and denominations - one cent in green, five cents in royal blue, ten cents in brown and 20 cents in red.

It is expected that people making purchases in shops will be invited to take their change in ?? stamps.
