    New York, U.S.A.: SCU, CU, FCU, Mr. Menzies speaks:-(Nat.sd.)



    SOUND EFFECTS.



    SCU Mr. Menzies speaks:-



    "Well, we've had a good deal to do with them in the very real sense. Twice in this century Australia has been involved in a great war & on each occasion the war came out of events which I in the immediate sense began in Europe, and, therefore, we have a very vital interest in external affairs. And perhaps haven't always shown as much interest in them as we should, but we've had very harsh reminders of them twice, and I think it is of very much greater interest now, in the result, than there ever was before." CU.... Oh yes very much, when a member of the Stirling area, that is to say we collaborate with the United Kingdom with the other stirling countries joint dollar & gold reserve & we are therefore, stirling country with all the interest in the world. In getting back to the State of Affairs and once more when the dollar and the crown can be freely exchangeable, and therefore, we have taken part in the various conferences, as a matter of fact it was the treasurer that is to say the Minister of Finance of Australia who promoted this idea a year ago at a conference in London where tremendous concerned because we believe convertibility is good for you in the United States & good for us because it will mean a free slow of investments which will eliminate a great deal of the managing trouble that exists in the world, it won't of course eliminate proper national politics but I think that in the civilised world the capacity of one nation to invest money in another. The capital reward of its investments is of tremendous importance because the world is yet undeveloped or under-developed. We in Australia for example in terms of development are rather as you were in the U.S. when you had about a quarter of the population that we now have."



    FCU...In my opinion none. The great issues in the world are peace or war we're both on the same side. resistance to aggression, we're both on the same side. the removal of un-necessary barriers of ...., in other words the promotion of commerce or intercourse between the nations of the world were both on the same side. There are no issues that can be divided so long as we're not too weak enough to invent issues, or to dragulate minor differences, that may become real issues. But in real terms, none.
