G. Lyall's letter in last week's Spectator is very much to the point. The liquidation of Hitler and Co., including subsidiary concerns in Italy, Rumania, and elsewhere, by public and ignominious execution is the only way to discourage other budding tyrants and convince the peoples of Europe that such men are not to be tolerated. We have to re-educate not only the Youth of Germany but Europeans in general to the knowledge that any man who aspires to be a Fiihrer in the Hitlerian sense should be put under restraint before he infects others

with his nonsense.—Yours faithfully, WALTER P. MACFARLANE. 7 Fkerzedown Road, Belmont, Surrey.
