Empire Day Movement.

(Non-party. Non-sectarian


A message from the President
V.C., P.C., G.C.M.G., C.B., D.S.O.

PLE," said His Late Majesty King
GEORGE VI, in a broadcast message to
you last Christmas Day. Indeed, it is
this special aptitude for friendliness
and Socratic respect for the opinion of
others that has knit together into so
unique a partnership, the British Com-
monwealth and Empire.

Mistakes and misunderstandings
there have been; but these have never
done more than temporarily obscure
the ideals for which so many have
struggled--with bravery and devo-
tion, with sincerity of purpose.

Today we stand on the threshold of
a new ELIZABETHAN era. Let us
rightly draw inspiration from the
proud sixteenth century whence
sprang the seed of Empire: but let us
also renew our faith in the principles
of social harmony and fellow-feeling
which brought the seed to flower;
and, resolve, moreover, by word and
deed, to proffer the same good-will to
those people beyond our gates who
have espoused another way of life.

And now a special message for you, rerospe
young people, who are so accustomed In co
to take for granted the friendship that Excelle:
exists between the peoples of our Bill, bu
many races. That is all to the good: new le
but do not forget those we call Bill. tho
