of those comrades and friends who
-were about to die, gallantly, on the

say thatafter a preliminary study of l
the wining plan, I find myself in en-
tire accord with it.
Such, if I may say so, was not the
case with the peace treaties.
In voting my approval of this plan
I am performing a simple duty, name-
ly, fulfilling the promises I gave to
these departed fighters, persogal
friends of mine, when they bade me,
in their last hours of earthly exist-I
ence, not to neglect the first real op-!
portunity to raise a hand in favor ofI
real peace, as opposed to a "fake";
peace, such as the present one is, or
to a visionary peace, impossible of
early fulfillment.
It is with pleasure that I perform
this preliminary duty.!
