Senator MILLEN (Tasmania) . - After I had spoken in opposition to this motion last Thursday night, I began to ask myself if there was not another side to be considered. On reflection, I came to the conclusion that the hope of the world lay in the Christian religion, and that a common language would provide a vehicle by which Christian teaching could be broadcast throughout the world if the churches so desired. Believing that universal peace would be promoted if the creed of the Founder of Christianity could be disseminated in speech that would be understood by all peoples, I have resolved to support the motion.
