[To the Editor of THE SPECTATOR.] Silt, — Your correspondents do

not seem to realise that the attitude of " Under 3o—VI " represents a phase which many intelligent, idealistic young people pass through nowadays. They have lost their childish illusions and have not yet found a new faith to replace them. For they are deadly honest.

The phase, happily, passes and the new faith is found—or else as " Under " herself points out, there would be many suicides.

But it seems to me that " Under 3o—VI " is the only one of your contributors under this section who presents a point of view rather than a personal experience.—Yours faithfully,

Ashley Cottage, Roehampton, S.W. MARGARET SASSOON.
