CHURCH SPEAKS AT CONFERENCE Dr. Merrill Discusses World at War at Cardston Meet Church Welfare (From Our Own Correspondent) CARDSTON. Feb. 25. Alberta stake quarterly conference was held here Sunday with Flder Joseph Merrill, a member of the Council of Twelve, from Salt Lake City, representing general authorities of the L.D.S. Church, In attendance. The opening session, held at nine a.m., was a lantern slide showing many church Welfare projects in Utah. There was canning of fruit and vegetables, making of sorghum, irrigation works, the building of a 300,000 bushel grain elevator, now filled with wheat purchased by the Relief societies, and other successfuU undertakings, from shoe repairs, clothing npairs and other schemes, renovation of houses and churches, new hemes built by donation labor, brick making, to the New York scheme for finding jobs for the unemployed. Church members who have not been in Utah for the pasc three or four years really got a fair idea of how big this work has grown. Dr. Merrill In the afternoon session Dr. Merrill addressed a crowded church with an overflow meeting in the basement accommodated with a loud speaker, on present conditions. Having been president of the European mission in the early years of the Hitler regime, he is familiar with the conditions and people of those countries. He said the World War No. 1 took people off their knees; they asked: "If there Is a God. why does He allow such things to transpire?" Sunday became a day of pleasure Instead of a day of worship. Scriptures were then quoted to show that men are allowed their freedom to do what they will. When mc go to war they are exercising their privilege to do as they choose. "Mein Kampf." written by Hitler in 1933, is a fair indication of his plans, and so far he has been able to carry them out. When Hitler came into power they Tribute to Dr. (From Our Own Correspondent.) RAYMOND. Feb. 25. An editorial in the current issue of "Hi-Times, a newsy high scshool weekly whose editor is Mr. Victor Miller, pays tribute to Dr. Wayne Woolley, a former student of the Raymond high school. The significance of the story is that youth, too, recognizes merit and achievements by other young men of whom Dr. Woolley is an i outstanding example of "Small 1 Town Boy Makes Good". Despite the fact that The Herald has carried stories of Dr. Woolley's rise to prominence iri the field oi science, the following from the pen of Raymond's youth is doubly significant, since it is quite evident that while Raymond people are proud of the Raymond boy's record, little and not enough has been said of him. Therefore this fine tribute which is an expression of Raymond's students of 'teen-age is indeed significant. "There is no work of genius which has not been the delight of mankind, no word of genius to which human heart or soul have not sooner or later responded." Rousseau. "Dr. Wayne Woolley began his career in the Raymond public school. He took great interest in the high school, and by the time his 13th birthday rolled around he had graduated from the Raymond high school. University Career ". . . . In 1931 Dr. Wayne Woolley enrolled in chemistry in the University ol Alberta. During his four years in the department of chemistry his work was brilliant, and at the age of 19 lie graduated. "Having acquired liis groundwork u.i ILL, tauijjua. Dr. Woolley registered at the University of Wisconsin to obtain his Doctor's Degree in chemistry. "At this university Wayne was classified as the one genius of 12,000 students. ... A tribute by a few of the geniuses of yesteryear. "Today Dr. Woolley is in the field of independent research at the Rockefeller Institute of Medical Re-has been for the past two years. Goes to Europe "In 1937 he received the prize in biochemistry donated by the Society of Biological Chemists. This prize consisted of $1000 and a trip to Geneva meant money for his work as well as an opportunity to work and 2,$T RULE for Finest Tea-USE CHOI CE TEA LEAVES LEADER no longer dared to criticize or even Joke about the policies of the government or Hitler. Economic conditions were very bad when Hitler came Into power, and the people accepted better conditions in exchange for their liberties. "The German people are not responsible for this ho "and the oeODle will turn against him." The failure of Hitler to carry out his avowed plan will stir Germany. Still referring to the Scriptures, Dr. Merrill said: "If the British people win serve uw, power on earth can overcome them." "Will war come to America?" he asked. Since 1938 Elder Merrill said that he had wlrtten many letters lo President Roosevelt and senators drawing attention from his knowledge of Germany and surrounding countries, saying that if Hitler dictated peace in Europe, United States will nave to ngni in oouui numw. and here they would be at a disadvantage, as the distance from Africa to Brazil is shorter than from United States. "The Lord has promised that He will protect those who serve Him. Obedience to His laws is our only authority.' War Savings President E. J. Wood spoke on our duties to our country and encouraged all to buy all the certifi cates possible; to forego luxuries ana use tne money jui aui certificates. The church set an ( ample by purchasing $5000 worth of bonds in the summer. The choir, under the direction of Lawrence Leavitt, with Mrs. Foyal Smith as accompanist, attended all sessions and rendered some excel lent anthems, outstanding among them being "Great is Jehovah," witn Mrs. J. S. Smith singing the solo. Some special numbers were: "How Lovely Are Thy Dwellings," Monte Atkin. "The Holy City" Kenneth Long, and the Cardston male chorus which rendered two numbers at the evening session. During the evening meeting, in charge of the Stake M.I.A. officers, Elder Merrill spoke on the advantage of non-use of liquor and to bacco. Wayne Woolley learn from Europe's greatest minds. "Now in 1941 he has been award ed a prize. This time by the Society or Bacteriologists for meritorious research. His investigations, roughly, have been upon three lines, the antl pellagara, a virulent endemic dis ease of the poor white and negro population ot tne boutnern btates.; pantothenic acid, one of the vita mins of the B2 complex controlling Kro-,v!h ana a new vitamin con ing the falling out and the greying of hair. "Life has not been easy for the Raymond boy, who has fought cessfully at the crisis of his life for WajTie Woolley is blind. Like Milton, his greatest work is done in the darkness. "In every man's heart there place for his mother: . . . Woolley owes a great debt of grati tude to his mother, who by her faith ir. nis amnty nas piayea no r part in his success. His mother now resides in New York, where she is his constant companion and help. The convictions of his religion, too, have given Wayne the guidance that the great usually require. His faith ana nis striving nave Deen airectiy influenced by his church. ". . . . Raymond has something to be very, very proud of . . having one of her sons become one of the great scientists of the 20th century. . . . Wayne is well known oy practically all the people of Ray mond, and the whole world has heard of his ingenuity." Placer Mining Recoveries Less (From Our Own CorresnnnrlrnU CRANBROOK. B.C..
