It was a pity that Marjorie Munro had to take her speech on to the platform with her, though it is understandable, as her oration had been completely recast that morning. She has a pleasant voice and used it quite well, but lacked experience. There were regular breaks in the continuity, as she followed the track of the speech from the pages in her hand. Her nervousness showed at one point where she made a self-conscious moue as she was searching for her place. These are things which a little more confidence and experience will overcome.
A critical treatment of John Foster Dulles, though, must be carefully done before a New Zealand audience, otherwise the listeners will grow unsympathetic. I felt she lost a little ground by the choice of her subject.
