" PROPAGANDAPHOBIA " SIR,—Mr. Douglas Newton has been too hasty

in adopting this coined word to mean the urge or vogue for disseminating false " news." Surely in his sense the term

would mean just the reverse. Phobia is fear of, whereas the connotation used is intended to mean a love of propaganda.

It is difficult to suggest an alternative, but would not some such term as "Propaganda-mania " be more appropriate?
