LAKIN Titus vilie, Florida Feb.23-Mar.l-7:30Nitely CALVARY BAPTIST OF BELLFLOWER By JOE MCKNIGHT WICHITA. Kan. WV-Out of 77 years of memories, one of the proud recollections for Lester Weatherwax is having helped a church and a song to international fame. Lester and his brothers. Bill. Asa and Tom. brought renewed popularity to a small Iowa church and the song associated with it-The Church in the Wildwood-" Althought that was two generations ago the song and the church continue to be widely known. The brothers, natives of an Iowa farm, had formed a q u a r t e t known as The Weatherwax Boys. Lester sang baritone, Tom the bass, Asa first tenor and Bill second tenor. They became well known in the earfy years of this century and traveled the United States and Canada from 1910 until 1921. A few years later Lester settled in Wichita. Still slim and unusually active for his 77 years, Lester recalls vividly the right in St. Louis when a member of the audience asVed the quartet to sing "The Church in the Wildwood." ·We were flabbergasted," he recalls. -It didn't fit in with our classical pro- i gram. But we sang it and i: the response was over: whelming." Their rendition song became so of the popular that within a few weeks the b r o t h e r s began bunding their programs around it. Each time they sang it they told the history of the song and of the real church in the wildwood. They knew it well for their farm home near Charles City. Iowa, was only a dozen miles from the place where the little church was built a century ago and still stands. Arabs Make Big Problem for Paper Travelers began seeking out Nashua and the tittle church about which we told them," Weatherwax said. ·By 1915-16 the church had ,, ,,,,,, ^ m teen restored to its original Jtjte Jews rejoiced last fan when ·We count it a God-given a document condemning anti- opportunity to have been a semhism was brought before part of spreading the story ^e Roma" Catholic Ecumen- and the song of the shrine."
