SIR, — Mr: Fellows, in 'making his suggestion that Gerniany be invited

to wrest Abyssinia from Italy, has overlooked one point—the Suez Canal. It is hardly to be expected that France, having found legal reasons for allowing Italy free passage, should fail to find equally legal reasons for refusing such freedom to Germany. In fact, it has been one of the more interesting academic speculations of the war to try to assess the attitude of the League and France to Abyssinia's appeal for help, had Germany and not Italy been the aggressor.—Yours
