    MR. FISHER SPEAKING.



    TRANSCRIPT: FISHER: I AS A PARENT AM NATURALLY VERY ANXIOUS, CONCERNED AND I MIGHT SAY WORRIED ABOUT EARL. BUT I KNOW THAT THE WAR EFFORT, I FEEL THAT THE WAR EFFORT IS A VERY NECESSARY THING AND IN EFFECT WE ARE STILL IN A WAR IN THE WHOLE OF ASIA. IT IS VERY NECESSARY AND I CANT EXPECT TO BE SPARED THE PROBLEMS ANY MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE. I AM SAYING THIS TO INDICATE THAT SIMPLY BECAUSE I'M A PARENT SHOULD NOT MAKE ME LOSE JUDGEMENT AND MAKE ME WANT THEM TO GO IN THERE IMMEDIATELY ANY MORE THAN IF IT WERE SOME OTHER PERSON'S SON.
