The right to express your own con. clusions as you have is a funda- mental one and I have no quarrel with you on that score. "In the interest of fair play, however. I am setting out here- after some of the reasons which in my opinion justify my vote on that measure. I am sure you will agree that in a consideration of legisla- tive matters we have some ad- Vantage over you men who are far from the scene of action. We have the benefit of committee hearings, printed testimony, confidential con- ferences with committee members and the debate on the floor of the House. ets Forth Objections "Now what is the record of lend- lease since it was continued one year ago?
