Mr. Speaker, I should like to associate myself with what has been said. Those of us who knew Jan Masaryk and the ideas which always guided his political life were shocked to find his name among those who were included in the new government two weeks ago. We could not understand what had happened. Perchance when the curtain is lifted we may understand and realize that he took the step in order to do something further for his country, and having failed to do so, not being satisfied to live under a regime which he thought would destroy those democratic principles for which he stood, somehow he met his death. One day history may tell us how and why.
