SIR CONAN DOYLE'S QUESTION.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES.

Sir, — I should like to ask one question and receive a definite reply from all those persons, including Mr. Punch, who are making our Olympic task more diffcult. It is this :- "Are you prepared to stand down from the Berlin Games altogether ?" In answering it they would do well to bear three points in mind - that we were defeat at the last Games, that the Games are in Berlin, and that all the chief nations have already announced their intention of seriously competing. If in the face of this they are prepared to stand down, then their attitude is, I admit, perfectly consistent. If they are not, then what is it that they want to do ?

Yours faithfully,

ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE.
Windlesham, Crowborough, Sept. 11.
