"Thinking them out"

"Thinking them out"

Sir,—Why aren't we making use of cur powers of psychology? The German Fuehrer and his crow of assassins may not come within the range of Allied guns, but they cannot hide from our powers of thought. By the use of these powers we could send them to their "own place". We could do this, not vengefully, but in the spirit of even-handed justice.

Years ago the famous Dr. Joseph Parker, of the City Temple, London, electrified his great congregation by exclaiming, "God damn the Sultan!" He said this reverently, and used the words as prayer. Cannot we wish similarly with regard to those who are not men but mad dogs?—I am, etc.

S.H.D. Peryman.

Johnsonville, "Dominion"
