He called on the free worl< for unity, strength and perse verence to win the struggli for a true and lasting peac despite the Communist "men ace and threats." And he promised: "Those who respect the dig nity of man will not fail be fore the magnitude of th task." t t HE OFFERED every poss: ble negotiation with Russi which holds "promise of con structive results." But he cautioned agains the danger of "substituting i: lusion for reality."
