He warned thnl "such a lime in history breds defeatism and despair. But there are among us those who believe that man lias n-ilAin him the capacity to meet and overcome even the great tests of our times. What we must not lose or WE lose all. is out willingness to seek the truth and our courage to act upon the truth."
