    SOUND EFFECTS:

    SV..."Now we have just passed through the month of November, usually a month of fogs and gloom, but on the whole, a month I have liked a good deal better than some other months we have seen during the course of this present unpleasantness.

    GV..."But what I have felt during this month, when so much fighting has been going on by the British and Americans, what I have felt, has been a feeling of gladness that we, too are engaging the enemy closely and not leaving an undue burden to be borne by the Russians, who have carried this immense struggle through the whole of this year and a large part of, last year."

    SCU..." But our enemies are powerful. They consider that they will have the strength to wear us out even if they cannot beat us down. Their hope is now to prolong the struggle so that perhaps differences will arise between friends and allies, so that perhaps democracies whom they despise and whom they under-rate will weary of the war - all these are their hopes.

    "So I say to you all here in Bradford what I said when I was here nearly 30 years ago - 'When we have these taunts, when we have these threats, these menaces of the foe - let us go forward together and put these grave matters to the proof."

    Natural sound of crowd clapping and cheering and singing "For He' a Jolly Good Fellow." Conductor calling for cheers for Mr. Churchill and Mary.
