A Tribute to Lord Cecil

It is very pleasant to hear of the movement to do honour to Lord Cecil, greatest of those of our nation who have spent themselves these twelve years in the cause of peace. The proposal is to have a portrait of Lord Cecil painted and placed in the National Portrait Gallery, and a fund has been opened for this purpose. Contributions will be received at any branch of the Midland Bank, Ltd., or may be sent to the Hon. Secretary, " Tribute to Lord Cecil Fund," 43 Russell Square, W.C. 1. Lord Cecil is a line example of the statesman with a mission so urgent and significant that it transcends the values of party politics. Our children looking upon his portrait will have cause to say " His name liveth for evermore."
