SIR, — My admiration for the luminaries of our country increased when I listened to " Onlooker " on Good Friday night. Most of all, I admired the consummate skill with which he talked of the deeper things of life which are brought to our mind on this day and was able completely to avoid any reference to man's Redemption. We had, of course, been told in a postscript to the news that Good Friday is the traditional day for planting potatoes, but I am still left wondering why a nation supposed to be fighting a crusade is presumed to have so little time for the Cross, which should be its only standard.
