2CA is Canberra's sporting commercial radio station. It is most appropriate, therefore, that 2CA is conducting

today an appeal, for funds to help to meet the costs of having our Australian athletes at the Montreal Olympic Games.

Our athletes have trained well, and are going to work hard to keep Australia on the world sporting map.

If you watched on television this morning the opening of the Olympic Games, you would have shared my pride in our team. ' ~

But we mustn't leave it all up to the competitors: they are our ambassadors in Montreal. Let's help them to

bring home the medals of honour and distinction. .

My congratulations go to 2CA for its initiative in this matter, and to the ACT Sports Council for its active participation.

I am happy to make available for this worthy appeal the use of my Department's telephone facilities at the Tourist Bureau. The telephone number there is 497555. Please phone through your donations to that number, ,

starting from now. .

I commend this appeal to your generosity and

declare it open.
