The men 1,vho are going to speak in the Queen's Hall make news. Their views on other subjects are immediately reported.
Dean Inge is always " news." He is speaking. Captain Victor Cazalet, M.P., Amateur squash • champion, Oxford Blue, speaker, brother of Miss Thelma Cazalet (constantly photo graphed) is " news." Arnold Lunn, ski pioneer and champion, controversialist, author of famous Harrovians, was " news" — until he became a Catholic. Douglas Jerrold, Editor of English Review and author of one of last year's best-sellers, Georgian Adventure, would he " news," if not a Catholic and prominent Francoist. Those are the chief speakers.
Go to the meeting yourself, if you have time, but better still give a ticket to a friend who does not share your views on Spain, and tell him to go and see if he cannot ask the speakers some pertinent questions. They will be delighted if the Hall is filled with opponents who will be fair enough to allow them to speak. •
