Th# conference must ,. . supplement individual domestic programs for economic recovery by wise and considered international action.
Th# Disarmament Conference has labored for more than a year . . . confused purj*HW* still clash dangerously. Our duty lies in the direction of bringing practical result* through concerted action based upon th# greatest good to the greatest number.
I believe that the overwhelming majority of peoples feel obliged to retain excessive armaments because they fear some act of aggression against them and not because they themselves seek to be aggressors. There Is Justification for this fear.
If all the nations will agre# wholly to eliminate from possession and us# the weapon* which make possible a successful attack, defenses automatically will become impregnable, and th# frontiers and independence of every nation will become secure.
The ultimate objective of the Disarmament Conference must be the complete elimination of all offensive weapons The immediate objective Is a substantial reduction of some of these weapons and th# elimination of many others.
