SIR,—You don't want to listen to that fellow Page prating

on about the Yorkshire Home Rule Associa- tion. l'm perfectly sure there isn't such a thing.

We in Yorkshire are intensely proud of the part we have played in bringing England to her present position and we know how to deal with any back- sliding.

In fact 1 don't think it unduly boastful to say that Yorkshire is England. So whY should we want a Home Rule society?

And that nasty little jibe that character Page makes against our present alleged lack of tenors is just un-

true. • Starting with some of today's best bop singers, down to the Marsh Lane crooners, we've got more , than we want.

Here's to thee.—Yours faithfully, ALFRED ARNOLD
