    The Queen says that war has at all times called for the fortitude of women but this time women as well as men can serve their country in time of need, and says that those who are parted from their loved ones, and who have opened their houses to strangers and children are giving real service to the country. Queen says that we all have our part to play and the greater the courage and devotion the sooner will return the happy ordered life.

    Good Scenes.

    Queen says the last time she broadcast was at Nova Scotia, and the world was then at peace and the very thought of bloodshed seemed impossible, but today the circumstances are changed as once again the Peace is broken and we have been forced into war, but we must see to it that despite the difficulty of these days our homes do not lose the qualities which make them the background as well as joy of our lives..
