Keynote Address

It is an honour to be asked to make some introductory remarks at a Conference like this - an honour and a problem. For the most striking feature of the Commonwealth is its diversity. In such company, if a speaker limits himself to ideals and noble generalizations he may safely win universal assent; but let him for a moment leave that serene stratosphere of platitude and his remarks will strike one listener or another as sensible or absurd, helpful or irrelevant, interesting or obvious, according to his national context.
