Senator McLEAY (South Australia) (Leader of the Opposition) . - I endorse the eulogistic references by the Postmaster-General (Senator Ashley) to this distinguished Australian. I congratulate the Government upon having succeeded in persuading Sir Owen Dixon to accept this high office in these difficult times. During the early stage of the war, I, as Minister for Commerce, had an opportunity of close contact with Sir Owen Dixon, and I look upon him as a brilliant and outstanding Australian. I am proud to know that a man of such calibre will represent Australia at Washington.
