SIR,—We are told that the present crisis is second to none in our history ; that nothing should be spared to assure that the maximum war effort is made. Yet one daily paper which has a tremendous influence among the workers and has pledged itself to work for maximum war effort remains banned. I refer, of course, to the Daily Worker. Surely it would be to the advantage of everyone opposed to Hitlerism that this ban should be lifted immediately.—Yours faith- fully, STELLA E. ASHTON. Cralle Place, Vines Cross, Horam, Sussex.
