OUR readers are invited to take out a subscription to THE SPECTATOR as a New Year Gift to their friends on particularly favourable terms. Such a gift would, no doubt, be greatly appreciated by those who wish to be kept adequately informed on Home and Foreign affairs.

Since war broke out THE SPECTATOR has received from its readers a remarkable series of expressions of appreciation on its sane and consistent handling of current issues, political, industrial and economic, both in its editorial columns and in signed contributions of recognised authority. Other regular features include articles on Country Life, artistic, theatrical, musical and cinema criticisms, and competent and impartial book reviews.

The publishers will post a copy of THE SPECTATOR for fifty-two weeks to any address in the world (excluding enemy territory) and will in addition present to the donor or recipient a book token or books to the value of 10s. 6d., making a gift worth 40s. 6d. for 26s.

The only condition laid down is that the person or persons to whom the paper is to be sent under this scheme have not hitherto been regular readers of THE SPECTATOR.

Readers who avail themselves of this offer are invited to fill in the form at the foot of the page, or alternatively to send the required particulars on a sheet of paper, accompanied by a remittance of 26s. for each subscription.
