The " Spectator " Scottish Number .

We publish this week special articles dealing with Scottish affairs. It is thought that the English Press as a whole fails to give sufficient attention to those subjects which appeal specially to • Scots. We have, therefore, 'included an analysis by a Scot of the conditions- which have brought about the phenomenon of Scottish National- ism, together with articles evaluating Scotland's educa- tional and cultural development. Special attention has also been given to Scottish affairs in the Travel Section, and many reviews of books on Scottish subjects appear on the review pages.
