[and] liad also etched his face with grief 
and care". He stood up for the pope all 
right, ■"'unconditional surrender'' or not. 
You can judge whether he was standing 
up for America's commander-in-chief or 
was standing up for his own personal 
boss when he wrote this slobber : 

No ony understands more clearly than the 
pope the horror and the devastation of war, 
and of this war. No one suffers more poignant- 
ly, more deeply than he. He feels the sorrows 
of all. He sees the biobd and the tears of all. 
He sees tremendous masses of men increasing- 
ly efficient in mutual massacre, increasingly 
enmeshed by tentacles of brutality and hate. 
He realizes that hate begets hate, that brutal- 
ity spawns brutality and that revenge cries 
for revenge. The juggernaut of war crushes 

forward and backward over nations and 
peoples. Men aflame with savage goadings 
rush onward crashing other men aflame and 
thus the conflagration mounts, spreads, 
devastates and consumes. 

The pope thinks, works, prays and literally 
dies for peace. He wishes the conquerors to 
be not only just with the conquered but also 
merciful. He knows full well that revenge is 
a bitter, gnawing thing, "All nations, great 
and small," he says, ''have a right to live/ 1 
He exhorts nations and their rulers to make 
their actions agree with their principles. 

Well, how about Ethiopia? Did that 
have a right to live? And how about the 
smaller sects? Do they have a right to 
live? Pacini's answer to the last question 
would have to be, "No," 

Libel Case Terminated 

ALLEGING libel on the grounds of 
statements appearing in several 
issues of The Watchtower during 1939, 
suit was filed . by Olin R. Movie, of 
Wauwatosa. Wis., against the two corpo- 
rate societies, Watch Tower Bible and 
Tract Society, .of Pennsylvania, and 
Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, 
Inc., of New York; and, on the other 
cause of action, against J. F. Rutherford 
and eleven associates in the organiza- 
tion. Action for damages to the amount 
of $50,000 on each cause of action, or a 
combined total of $100,000, was com- 
menced October 11, 1940. Less than two 
years thereafter the defendant J. F. 
Rutherford died, but the suit continued 
to be pushed. 

This unique libel suit came up for 
trial before Judge Ughetta of the New 
York Supreme Court in Brooklyn's 
Supreme Court Building on May 10, 
1943. After an extended trial continuing 
until May 27, the jury rendered a 
verdict, voting ten to two, against the 
defendants of the ease and awarded the 
complainant Moyle $15,000 on each 
count, or a total of $30,000 damages. 
The presiding judge denied all motions

by defense attorney for alternative rul- 
ing and decided in agreement with the 
jury's verdict. 

Appeal was at once taken from this 
decision to the court's Appellate Divi- 
sion, Second Department, After due re- 
argument by opposing attorneys before 
this court of five judges, followed by 
judicial deliberation, decision was ren- 
dered. It was three to two in affirmation 
of the judgment of the Supreme Court,

According to due process of law, again 
the defendants took appeal from the 
decision, now to the state's highest court, 
the Court of Appeals at Albany, New 
York's capital. After due reargument 
and deliberation, this court of seven 
judges let their decision be known on 
November 22, 1944, affirming decision of 
the lower court, affixing the costs, but 
offering no opinion on the case. 

Their decision being unanimous, and 
the defendants being unable to move for 
reargurnent of tho case, the $15,000 
damages was duly paid over, with 
interest accrued, to plaintiff Moyle, thus 
terminating the matter.

July 21, 1939 

Judge J. F. Rutherford, Brooklyn, N. Y. 

Dear Brother Rutherford: 

This letter is to give you notice of our intention to leave Bethel on September 1st next. This 
reasons for leaving are stated herein and we ask that you give them careful and thoughtful 

Conditions at Bethel are a matter of concern to all of the Lord's people. Nowhere among 
imperfect men can there be perfect freedom from oppression, discrimination and unfair 
treatment, but at the Lord's headquarters on earth conditions should be such that injustice would 
be reduced to the minimum. That is not the case here at Bethel and a protest should be made 
against it. I am in a good position to make such protest because your treatment of me has been 
generally kind, considerate and fair. I can make this protest in the interests of the Bethel family 
and of the Kingdom work without any personal interest entering into the matter. 

Treatment of Bethel Family. 

Shortly after coming to Bethel we were shocked to witness the spectacle of our brethren 
receiving what is designated as a "trimming" from you. The first, if memory serves me correct, 
was a tongue lashing given to C. J. Woodworth. Woodworth in a personal letter to you stated 
something to the effect that it would be serving the devil to continue using our present day 
calendar. For that he was humiliated, called a jackass, and given a public lambasting. Others have 
been similarly treated. McCaughey, McCormick, Knorr, Prosser, Price, Van Sipma, Ness and 
others have been similarly scolded. They have been publicly called to account, condemned, and 
reprimanded without any previous notice. This summer some of the most unfair public 
reproaches have been given. J. Y. McCauley asked a question which carried with it a criticism of 
the present method of Watch Tower study. For that he was severely reprimanded. Your action 
constituted a violation of the principle for which we are fighting, towit, freedom of speech. It was 
the action of a boss and not that of a fellow servant. Securing an efficient mode of study with 
imperfect study leaders is no easy task, and no method yet produced has proved to be one 
hundred per cent perfect. You stated that no complaints had come to you concerning this method 
of study. If that be the case you have not had all the facts presented to you. There is complaint in 
various places that the Watch Tower studies have degenerated into mere reading lessons. It 
maybe that the present method is the best that can be used, but in view of known limitations 
honest criticism should not be censored nor honest critics punished. 

Brother Worsley received a public denunciation from you because he prepared and handed to 
brethren a list of helpful Scripture citations on fundamental topics. How can we consistently 
condemn religionists for being intolerant when you exercise intolerance against those who work 
with you? Doesn't this prove that the only freedom permitted at Bethel is freedom to do and say 
that which you wish to be said and done? The Lord certainly never authorized you to exercise 
such high handed authority over your fellow servants. 

Since the Madison Square Garden meeting there has been a distressing condition of restraint and 
suspicion at Bethel. The ushers were placed in a tough spot but did an excellent piece of work. 
They exercised care and diligence in watching arrivals at the Garden, and prevented a number of 
suspicious characters from entering. They were on the job immediately when the disturbance 
started and quelled a disturbance which would have otherwise reached serious proportions. But 
for two weeks following the convention there has been constant criticism and condemnation of 
them from you. They have been charged with dereliction of duty and labeled as "sissies". To see 
some of these boys break down and cry because of your unkind remarks is, to say the least 

The brethren at Bethel have thoroughly demonstrated their loyalty and devotion to the Lord, and 
do not need to be berated for wrong doing. A suggestion or a kindly admonition from you would 
be more than sufficient to check any wrongful action, and would eliminate resentment and induce 
greater happiness and comfort for the whole family. You have stated many times that there are no 
bosses in the Lord's organization but the undeniable fact cannot be evaded that your actions in 
scolding and upbraiding these boys are the actions of a boss. It makes one sick at heart and 
disgusted to listen to them. If you will cease smiting your fellow servants Bethel will be a happier 
place and the Kingdom work will prosper accordingly. 


We publish to the world that all in the Lord's organization are treated alike, and receive the same 
as far as this world's goods are concerned. You know that is not the case. The facts cannot be 
denied. Take for instance the difference between the accommodations furnished to you, and your 
personal attendants, compared with those furnished to some of your brethren. You have many 
many homes, towit, Bethel, Staten Island, California etc. I am informed that even at the Kingdom 
Farm one house is kept for your sole use during the short periods you spend there, and what do 
the brethren at the farm receive? Small rooms, unheated thru the bitter cold winter weather. They 
life in their trunks like campers. That may be all right if necessary, but there are many houses on 
the farm standing idle or used for other purposes, which could be used to give some comfort to 
those who work so long and so hard. 

You work in a nice air conditioned room. You and your attendants spend a portion of the week in 
the quiet of country surroundings. The boys at the factory diligently work thru the hot summer 
months without such helps, or any effort made to give them. That is discrimination which should 
receive your thoughtful consideration. 


Here again is shown unequal and discriminatory treatment. One brother left Bethel some time 
ago for the purpose of getting married, and, so I am informed, was refused the privilege of 
pioneering in New York, apparently as an official disapproval of his action in leaving Bethel. On 
the other hand when Bonnie Boyd got married she didn't have to leave Bethel. She was permitted 
to bring her husband into Bethel in spite of the printed rule providing that both marrying parties 
should have lived there for five years. 

Harsh treatment of one and favored treatment of another is discrimination, and should not have a 
place in the Lord's organization. 

Filthy and Vulgar Language. 

The Biblical injunctions against unclean, filthy speaking and jesting have never been abrogated. 
It is shocking and nauseating to hear vulgar speaking and smut at Bethel. It was stated by a sister 
that was one of the things you had to get used to at Bethel. The loudest laughter at the table 
comes when a filth or near filthy joke goes through, and your skirts are not clear. 


Under your tutelage there has grown up a glorification of alcohol and condemnation of total 
abstinence which is unseemly. Whether a servant of Jehovah drinks alcoholic liquor is none of 
my business, except in giving a helping hand to a brother who is stumbled thereby. Whether I am 
a total abstainer is nobody's business but my own. But not so at Bethel. There appears to be a 
definite policy of breaking in new comers into the use of liquor, and resentment is shown against 
those who do not join them. The claim is made, "One can't be a real Bethelite without drinking 
beer." Shortly after we arrived it was arrogantly stated, "we can't do much with Moyle, but we'll 
make a man out of Peter." A New York brother intimated that I was out of harmony with the 
truth and with the Society because I didn't drink liquor. A New York sister stated that she had 
never used liquor or served it until some of the Bethel boys insisted upon it. A brother who used 
to drink liquor to excess became a total abstainer after getting the truth. He knew that a single 
drink of liquor would start him off to his former drinking habits, but in spite of that brethren from 
Bethel insisted upon his imbibing liquor and inferred that he was out of harmony with the 
organization through refusing. Total abstainers are looked upon with scorn as weaklings. You 
have publicly labeled total abstainers as prudes and therefore must assume your share of the 
responsibility for the Bacchus like attitude exhibited by members of the family. 

These are a few of the things which should have no place in the Lord's organization. There are 
other more grievous injustices but I have had no personal contact with them and therefore do not 
discuss them. 

It hasn't been an easy or pleasant task to write these things to you, and its still harder to make this 
protest effective by leaving Bethel. 

We sold our home and business when we came to Bethel and fully intended to spend the rest of 
our lives at this place in the Lord's service. We leave in order to register most emphatically our 
disagreement with the unjust conditions related in this letter. We are not leaving the Lord's 
service but will continue to serve Him and His organization as fully as strength and means will 

Neither am I running away from battling the Devil's crowd in the courts. I expect to return to the 
private practice of law, probably in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and hope to be in the fight in every 
way possible. With this letter I am enclosing a statement of the major cases now pending in 
which I am actively participating. It would be unreasonable and unfair to drop these matters into 
your lap without further assistance or consideration. I am ready and willing to press these issues 

in the courts just as vigorously and carefully as though I remained at Bethel, and will do so if that 
is your desire. 

We have considered this action for some time, but this letter is delivered to you just as we are 
leaving on a vacation trip for very specific reasons. First: It is desirable that you take time for 
thought and consideration of the matters herein set forth before taking any action. Hasty and ill 
considered action might be regrettable. Second: Frankly I have no desire for a verbal argument 
with you over these matters. I have had plenty of occasion to observe that a controversial matter 
does not receive a calm and reasoned discussion of the facts. Too often it turns into a 
denunciation of some person by you. 

I am not interested in that kind of a wordy battle. These statements are the reasons presented by 
Sister Moyle and myself for leaving Bethel. If we speak erroneously or wrongfully we are 
responsible before the Lord for so speaking. If we speak truthfully, and we stoutly content that 
everything here related is the truth, then there is an immediate responsibility on your part to 
remedy the conditions necessitating this protest. May the Lord direct and guide you into fair and 
kindly treatment of your fellow servants is my with and prayer. 

Your Brother in the Kings service, 

Olin R. Moyle. 

P.S. Should you desire to write to me concerning these matters during vacation a letter will reach 
me at Ticonderoga, New York, General Delivery after July 29 th . 

Joseph F. Rutherford did not refute the allegations listed in Moyle's letter, but rather, side- 
stepped the facts by asserting that the accusations brought against him "personally," were to be 
considered as allegations against the "entire Society," which was considered by Rutherford as the 
"Lord's" organization. 

Therefore, (in Rutherford's mind), when Moyle spoke against him "personally," then Moyle was 
to be judged as speaking against the "Lord" as well! Moyle's letter was written in defense for 
better treatment of the Bethel members and the Society as a whole, however, against Rutherford's 
drunkenness and law breaking. 

Rutherford described Moyle's allegations as, "wicked slander, libel, filled with lies," and pleasing 
only to the Devil. Then, Rutherford induced others to join with him in publishing slanderous 
statements of his own against Moyle in the Watchtower magazine. Ironically, the accusation of 
"inducing others," or "causing divisions" among the brethren was exactly what Rutherford had 
published against Moyle! 

Rutherford used the old, "guilt by association" fear tactic! By pointing out that the "President" of 
this so-called, "Theocratic government" was a drunk, a criminal, and a cowardly bully, Moyle 
would later be described in Rutherford's Watchtower letter as the "evil servant". 

Moyle had been the Society's Lawyer and sued the Society after these defamatory statements 
about him appeared in the October 15,1939 Watchtower, pages 316-317. Moyle won this action 
against the Watchtower organization. Rutherford's letter against Moyle are photocopied next.

Defendants Exhibit D-36 

Brooklyn, N.Y., August 8, 1939 

Minutes of the joint meeting of the Boards of Directors of The Watch 
Tower Bible and Tract Society, the Pennsylvania Corporation, and The 
Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, Inc., of New York, on this 8th day of 
August, A. D. 1939, at a meeting of the Boards of Directors of the 
aforementioned Corporations there were present all the members of the 
Boards, to wit: 

J .F. Rutherford 
C. A. Wise 
W.E. Van Amburgh 
T.J . Sullivan 
C.J . Woodworth 
H.H. Riemer 
F.W. Franz 
W.P. Heath, Jr. 
Grant Suiter 
A.R. Goux 
N.H. Knorr 

The President reported to the Boards of Directors a letter which he 
had received, addressed to him by O.R. Moyle who for some time past has 
acted as legal counsel for the Corporations. Thereupon the letter was read 
before the Boards, and which letter is marked "Exhibit A" and made a part 
of this record and filed amongst the papers of this Corporation. Upon the 
reading of the letter a motion was made by T.J . Sullivan that a committee 
be appointed to consider the letter and make recommendations to the 
President. This motion was duly carried. Thereupon the President 
appointed such a committee composed of T.J . Sullivan, H.H. Riemer, and 
Grant Suiter. The committee retired to consider the letter. After due 
consideration the committee unanimously reported a resolution which in 
words and figures is as follows, to wit: 

"At a joint meeting of the Boards of Directors of the Pennsylvania 
Corporation, and the New York Corporation of the Watch Tower Bible & 
Tract Society held at the office of the Society at Brooklyn, New York this 
8th day of August 1939 at which other members of the family were present, 
there was read to said Boards and in the presence of O.R. Moyle a letter 
dated J uly 21, 1939 written by said Moyle and addressed to the President of 
the Society. 

"For four years past the writer of that letter has been entrusted with 
the confidential matters of the Society. It now appears that the writer of that 
letter, without excuse, libels the family of God at Bethel, and identifies 
himself as one who speaks evil against the Lord's organization, and who is 
a murmurer and complainer, even as the Scriptures have foretold. (J ude 4- 
16; 1 Corinthians 4:3; Romans 14:4. 

"The members of the Board of Directors hereby resent the unjust 
criticisms appearing in that letter, disapprove of the writer and his notions 
and recommends that the President of the Society immediately terminate 
the relationship of O.R. Moyle to the Society as legal counsel and as a 
member of the Bethel Family. 


T.J . Sullivan 
H.H. Riemer 
Grant Suiter" 

A motion was made that the Resolution be adopted. The motion 
being duly seconded, the letter and the Resolution were discussed at 
length by each member of the Board. O.R. Moyle, being also present at this 
meeting, was invited by the President to make any statement he had or to 
make any defense he desired to make and his only statement was this, to 
wit: "I have nothing more to say. The letter speaks for itself." Thereupon 
the name of each member of the Board was called and each one voted to 
adopt the Resolution. Upon the adoption of the Resolution, the President 
made the following remarks, which are here inserted in the record, to wit: 

"I have been at this desk for 22 years. I have had many accusations 
from the 'evil servant', but never had I had a worse one than this, if as bad. 
The complaint about me having different places in which to reside is the 
very language of the evil servant class. The accusations made in this letter 
that I have many places in which to live, and which are much better than 
any other members of the organization: The facts concerning this have 
been published time and again and the brethren everywhere know the 
facts, and they know that I do not own a foot of land under the sun; that 
those provisions have been made to further the kingdom interests, and, as 
stated in the book SALVATION, I wanted something as a tangible record 
and as evidence that we believe that God is going to bring back to the earth 
the faithful men of old. The Farm was bought for the support of this Family, 
and for other good reasons which I have not yet disclosed, but which are in 
the interest of the kingdom. As Brother Knorr has stated, this office was 
arranged for me, I had nothing to do with arranging it, but it was done by 
Brothers Martin, Knorr, Wise and Van Amburgh. 

"I have been criticized in this letter for having an air-conditioned 
room. Brother Van Amburgh will bear witness to this, that my office is the 
hottest room in this building, right under the roof and difficult therein to get 
good air. An air-conditioned arrangement was put into Brother Van 
Amburgh's office first, and he is the one that came to me and begged me to 
put it into my office. The Society did not pay a dime of the cost. (Brother 
Van Amburgh verified this.) I think the criticism about that is a cold- 
blooded cruelty, no matter whom it comes from. If it enables me to work, 
why should somebody criticize except one who has the spirit of the evil 

"REBUKES: Every rebuke I have administered has been given, as I 
believe, in the interest of the Society. The Apostle Paul was the special 
spokesman of the Lord J esus Christ. As the WATCHTOWER has stated, 
Timothy and Titus pictured the Society and as the Lord through Paul 
instructed them so the Lord through the Society instructs and directs 
others. The Society speaks by its official Head. To Timothy Paul said: They 
that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. 1 (1 Tim. 5:20) 
Concerning one who had taken a wrongful course Paul instructed Titus in 
these words: This witness is true, wherefore rebuke them sharply that they 
may be sound in the faith. 1 (Titus 1:13) Again, he said: These things speak, 
and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee. 1 (Titus 
2:15) As I have often stated to some of the brethren, it hurts me far more to 
administer a rebuke than it does the one who receives it. If I see something 
in the organization going wrong, as I believe, then I would be unfaithful to 
the Lord if I did not rebuke such wrongdoer. 

"I have tried to proceed according to the rule announced by the 
apostle, which is God's rule, that is to say: 'Whom the Lord loves he 
rebukes.' (Heb. 12:6) If every person is permitted to take his own course the 
organization would go to pieces. One who believes in the Theocratic 
government, and that J ehovah therefore is directing his people, must see 
that it is the proper course for the Society to arrange a system of study. 
Then if every person should be permitted to bring forth and adopt his own 
method of study that would mean acting contrary to the Lord's 
instructions. Rebukes are therefore necessary to bring such matters to the 
attention of others that they too may fear to go contrary to the Lord's 

"DISCRIMINATION: I have made no discrimination with reference to 
marriage. When Bonnie Boyd got married that was her business. It was my 
business to determine whether or not she should remain in the house. I 
either had to let her husband remain here or else dispense with her 
services. She has been my secretary for fifteen years and the most efficient 
one that I have had in the office. She has taken dictation for everything I 

have written, speeches, magazine articles, Watchtower, books and 
booklets. It was for me to determine whether she should remain in the 
office and I did determine that she should and that was my affair and my 
responsibility, and not that of someone else. 

"FILTHY LANGUAGE: If others in this house use it, that is their 
responsibility. The statement that filthy jokes are told at the table and that 
the family laughs at these and these only, is a damnable outrage and any 
man that says that such is the case is a deliberate liar regardless of who he 
is and from whence he comes. 

"LIQUOR: This charge is vicious. I have always been open and 
aboveboard about such matter. Brother Van Amburgh was once a 
prohibitionist. Upon the doctor's advice he takes some intoxicating liquor 
and I help him to get it. Brother Wise has stated from three doctors he has 
been advised to drink beer. I have furnished liquor to Brother and Sister 
Sullivan, especially her when she was ill, and to others in the house. That is 
my business and my responsibility. (Speaking directly to Moyle) You 
denounce me as the 'god of wine', which is the meaning of Bacchus, which 
is the word you use. You had to go to mythology and not to the Scriptures 
and find this name for me. Mythology proceeds from the Devil and other 
wicked spirits. J esus made wine, the apostle advised that it be taken in 
moderation and you are welcome to compare their statements to that of the 
evil spirits, if you wish. If your statement is not of the evil servant then I am 
notable to understand it. In this connection your charge against the family 
is vicious and false and shows that it proceeds from the spirit of the wicked 
one and is a damnable thing. 

"Now, I say this to you, Moyle, you have allied yourself with the 
Devil; you have willingly, without any just cause or excuse even, withdrawn 
yourself from the Lord's organization, and you are going back to the Devil's 
organization to engage in the practice of law. I have never known any man 
to withdraw from the Lord's organization and go into the Devil's 
organization, that ended up right. When you say you want to continue to 
fight for the Lord, there is not a person in this presence that believes a 
word of that. Henceforth you shall never represent the Watchtower by my 
consent. This Resolution has been adopted. I shall follow it. You have 
served notice to leave September 1. You need not wait but move out of the 
house this day. If you wish to join the enemy and fight, do so. I have no use 
for a quitter. You are a quitter. You have furnished as an excuse that the 
president of this organization has not conducted the Society according to 
your ideas, and I don't think your ideas are Scriptural. In the 4 years that 
you have been here, I have never heard you ask or answer a single Bible 
question in the Bethel home. Any man that pretends to be of the Lord's 
organization, and who does not attend the studies and does not engage in 
the spiritual discussion in this home, but who devotes himself to his 

general work, and then goes about talking with others to cause discord and 
to find fault with the organization, cannot be in the truth. I shall read this 
letter to the family or have it read. You may be present; if you wish to 
defend yourself. Henceforth I shall expect you to ally yourself with those 
who oppose the Society as long as I am here." 

MOYLE: "I don't expect to ally myself with any opposition." 

BRO. RUTHERFORD: "You complain about accommodations. You 
have the best room in the house aside from my own. What business is it of 
yours what somebody else has? That is not your business. You have gone 
to the Farm and talked to Brother Bogard's wife about conditions there. 
That is none of your business. If there was something wrong there you 
should have reported it to me. You have never reported it to me. If you were 
a real confidential servant of the Lord, and of this Society, you would have 
reported such things, but you did not. 

"Quoting from the Apostle Paul in substance, your criticism of me is 
a small thing. I care nothing about that. The apostle said: 'Moreover it is 
required in stewards that a man be faithful, but with me it is a very small 
thing that I should be judged of you, or of man's judgment. ..He that judges 
me is the Lord.' -1 Cor. 4:3, 4. 

"If everything that you have stated in this letter were true, that is no 
excuse for what you have done. 'Who art thou thatjudgeth another man's 
servant? To his own master he standeth or falleth. '-Romans 14:4. 

"Your difficulty, Moyle, is fear, probably not that you might receive 
some bodily injury, but fear you won't be approved of men and have it said 
you are a good fellow. In my opinion you are a religionist and not a 

BROTHER HEATH: "Moyle, I wish to propound to you this question: 
Are you a J esuit?" 

MOYLE: "Absolutely no, a thousand miles from it." 

BROTHER RUTHERFORD: "You might explain, Moyle, why you were 
so familiar in the court with McDonald, patting him on the back, when you 
knew that he was one of the leaders in the assault on the Lord's 
organization at Madison Square Garden. Had you performed your duty to 
our brethren the situation would have been far better for us now in the fight 
with the enemy who attempted to break up the Madison Square Garden 

"TO THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS: Now, brethren, your advise and 
this Resolution is adopted and will be carried out." 

The President thereupon ordered that said Moyle should be 
discharged as legal counsel for the Corporation and, in harmony with the 
Resolution, immediately terminated his relationship to the Society. 

There being no further business, upon motion the joint meeting

f&et to the world in order that persons of good will 
toward God will flee out of Satan's organization and 
find protection under the Lord and ultimately gain 
life everlasting. Those who perform their commis- 
sion faithfully will have a part in the vindication of 
Jehovah's name, and r in doing that work in obedi- 
ence to the Lord's commandment, they have entered 
into the joy of Christ Jesus, their Lord and Head. 

11 Never before were creatures granted such a priv- 
ilege. Never again will creatures have a like privilege. 
Before them they see the kingdom, the Theocracy 
that shall forever rule in righteousness. They are 
blind to everything else, because the kingdom, to 
them, is everything. The remnant know that they 
must die as humans in order to enter fully into God's 
spiritual house- They arc therefore fully determined 
to spend and be spent wholly in the service of Jeho- 
vah and his King. They are now joyful, and their 
joy will be complete when they have seen the Lord's 
victory at Armageddon. 

^ Seeing and appreciating t":-':ir relationship with 
the Most High, surely the faithful remnant will per- 
mit nothing to deter them in their continuous service 

to Jehovah. They will go on to faith and with ever- 
increasing courage unto the end. Now they know the 
meaning of the scripture, to wit, "Jehovah dwelleth 
in Zion." (Joel 3:21, A.R.V.; Ps. 132: 33, 34) Now 
the remnant have raised the song of joy, which will 
never end. To them the Lord says: "Sing and rejoice, 
O daughter of Zion; for, lo, I come, and I will dwell 
in the midst of thee, saith the Lord. And many na- 
tions shall be joined to the Lord in that day, and shall 
be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee; 
and thou shalt know that the Lord of hosts hath sent 
me unto thee. And the Lord shall inherit Jndah his 
portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem 
again. Be silent, all flesh, before the Lord; for he 
is raised up out of his holy habitation." (Zeeb. 
2 : 10-13) "Behold, I, and the children whom the Lord 
hath given me, are for signs and for wonders in 
Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in 
mount Zion." (Isa. 8 : J8) The end of religion is in 
sight. The victory and vindication of Jehovah is 
near. The joy of the remnant and their companions 
increases, and they continue to sing the praises of 
the Most High. 

Praise ye Jehovah. . . , The works of Jehovah are great, sought 
out of all tkem that have pleasure therein. His work is honor and 
majesty; and his righteousness .endvreth for ever. He hath made 
his wonder fid works to be remembered: . . , He hath skowtd his 
people the power of his works, in giving them the hef't-sffe of the 
nation*. The works of fat hands ate truth and justice; all his pre- 
cepts ("■* sure. . . , Holy and reverend is ki.i name. The fear of 
Jehovah is the beginning of wisdom; a good under Handing have 
all they that do his commandments; his praise endnreth for ever* 
—Psalm HI; J-10, A.R.V, 


BEING reminded (hat this is the time when God is 
removing from his organization every tiling that can 
be shaken, "that thaw things which cannot be shaken 
may remain" (Hcb. 12:26,27), the members of the board 
of directors of the "Watofj tower Bmue and Thact Society 
for the information and protection of those who are devoted 
to God's organisation, request that The Watchiouser pub- 
lish what follows : 

On the 21st of J uly^ 193.9, a paper writing in the f orm 
of a letter, signed by 0. R. MoylCj was le ft at th e desk in 
the lobby of the Bethel home addressed to the president 
of the Society. Because that paper involved the entire family 
at Bethel, i t was pro p erly brought before the board a] id 
before the famljy. Thc> k-l'.uT, being filled will: false, s);:itder- 
oyojid libelous, statements, wag vigorously condemned by 
the board, and by all the members of the Bethel fami ly. 
The hoard unanimously adopted the following Resolution, 
winch was ateo approved by the family: 

"At a joint meeting of the boards of directors of the 
Pennsylvania corporation and the New York corporation 
of the Watciitower Biblk and Tract Society held at the 
office of the Society at Brooklyn, N.Y. f this 8th day of 
August, 1939, at which other members of the family were 

present, there was read to saic boards and in the presence 
of 0. E. Moylo a letter dated July 21, 1339, written hy said 
Moyie and addressed to the president of the Society. 

"For four year? past the writer of that letter has been 
entrusted with, the confidential matters of the Society. It 
now appears t hat the writer o f that le tter, witho ut excuse, 
libels the family of God at B ethel, and identifies himself as 
on e who s peaks evil against tho Lord's organizat ion, and 
who is a tnu rmurcr a nd coin p lainer, even aa the S cript urea 
have fo retold. (Jude 4-1G; 1 Cor. 4: 3; Rom. 14:4) 

"The members of the board of directors hereby resent 
the unjust criticism appearing in that letter, disapprove of 
the writer and his actions, and r ecommend that t he presi- 
dent of the Society immediately termi nate the relat ionship 
oj_0. E. Moyle to . tlie Society as le gal counsel and a s_amgm- 
bcr of the Be th el family. " 

Aside from the introductory paragraph announcing the 
writer's purpose to leave Bethel at a fixed time, e very para - 
graph of that tel ler is false, filled with lies, and is a wicked 
slander and libe l not only against the president but against 
the entire family, and for that reason the letter has not been 
pub lished by th e Societ y. Ifc requested Consolation- to pub- 
lish liia letter, and Moyle, being refused, now causes his 

October 15, 1939 



libelous paper to be published and circulated among certain 
companies of the consecrated, cousins? the same ta be pub- 
licly read, and then by his own words, which may be called 
'fair snecch\ he protends to be in harmonv with the Society, 
and tli us further deceives the unsuspecting ones. His only 
possible purpose in further publishing his letter is to justify 
himself and to 'cause division anions the brethren', both of 
which are condemned by the ^ T ord of God. (Luke 16: 15; 
Rom, 16; 17, 18) For this re ason the breth ren should be _ 
warned. *"Tlia afore-mentioned letter" be ing filled with lies 
leveled against the brethren the same is hated by Jehovah ; 
"Six things doth the Lord hate ; yea, seven arc an abomina- 
tion unto him: ♦ . . a false witness that spcaketh lies, and 
be that soweth discord among brethren." — Pro v. 6: 16-10, 

By inducing others to join with him in the circulation 
and publication of his slanderous letter anwinj the conse- 
crated he makes others party to his wrong. The s landerous 
paper, being in opposition and against the interest of the 
Theocratic government, is pleasing only to ths Devil and 
his earthly agents. 

For four years ftfoyle was entrusted with the confidential 
matter? of the Society, and then, without excuse, be assaults 
and maligna those who trusted him. Judas was entrusted 
by Chriat Jesus with confidential matters, and Juda s proved 
his uniaithfulnjaajjjj ^furnishing to the enemy that which 

they could use and did use apa^nst the Lord. He who 
maligns the brethren of the Lord maligns the Lord him- 
self, and the end of such the Scriptures plainly point out. 
Having been warned, each. o ne must choose to join the 
"evil servant" and take the consequences (Ma tt. 24: 4&51} 
or remain faithful to Jehovah and his government by Christ 
Jesus* Choose whom you will serve . 


MAW hag a natural tendency to keep a record of events 
for his bencJit and that of succeeding generations. 
This is proof that the Creator purposed it thus to 
be. God planted this, faculty in man. Man is the highest of 
God's, earthly creation; and since man has a tendency to 
keep a record of events, it is only reasonable that his Maker 
would provide a means for man to keep a record of the 
most important things concerning himself , If Jehovah God 
had to do with the keeping of such a record, then be it 
known that that record is correct and contains the truth. 
The Bible is a history of God's creation of things earthly, 
and abo gives such information concerning his heavenly 
creation as relates Lo man and man's Lome. The Bible is 
God's revelation of himself to his intelligent earthly crea- 
tures. It is his expressed will, and therefore is the state- 
ment of his law for the government of his intelligent earthly 
creatures. Most of the Bible is a record of things which have 
taken place, but which foreshadow greater things to come. 
As the inspired Bible writer states it, at 1 Corinthians 
10; 6, 11: "Now these things were our examples, - , . Now 
all these things happened unto them for ensamplcs; and 
they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends 
of the world are come." That part of the Bible which we 
tail prophecy is the foretelling and recording of events that 
must come to pass, before they actually do come to pas'?. 
Prophecy is therefore the history of man written in advance. 
For this reason prophecy cannot be understood by man un- 
til it is in the course of fulfillment or has been fulfilled. 

The writers of the Bible God chose to do the writing 
because of tlnsir faith in him mid their faithfulness to him. 
As his unlimited power operated to create the things of the 
earth, so that power or spirit operated to direct and influ- 

ence the mind of Moses and other holy men to make record 
of God's will concerning man. King David was one of these 
faithful men devoted to the Lord, and concerning that part 
of the Bible which he wrote he said: "The spirit of the Lord 
spake by me, and bis word was in my tongue," (2 Sam. 
23:2) These faithful men of old are called "prophets", 
and they wrote prophecy. The apostle Peter, who was chosen 
by Jesus as one of his apostles, under inspiration wrote, at 
2 Peter 1 : 1&-2I : *TVe have also a more sure word of proph- 
ecy j whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light 
that shincth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the 
day star arise in your hearts: knowing this first, that no 
prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 
For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man : 
but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the holy 
[spirit].* 1 

Jehovah reveals himself and bis purpose to his people 
in his own due time. His prophecy, therefore, cannot he 
understood until it is God's due time for understanding it. 
This was plainly stated to the prophet Daniel, who writes; 
' f And I heard [the prophecy by the angel], but I understood 
net ; then said J, my Lord, what shall be the end of Ihrsc 
things! And he said, Go thy way, Daniel; for the words 
are closed up and sealed till the time of the end." "But thoti, 
Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the 
time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowled^ 1 
shall be increased." (Dan, 12:8, 9, 4) For a long while 
students of prophecy have limited the fulfillment of the*: 
words last quoted to travel by man up aud down Lh rough 
the earth by means of rapid transit machines, such as loco- 
motives, steamships, automobiles, airplanes, arid other like 
means; and also to the great increase of knowledge relating

ye terrified because of them." Go#, who is Satan's invisible 
field marshal, has brought into the conspiracy aJl of his 
forces, and these are directing their efforts against Jeho- 
vah's "hidden ones" (Pij. S3 : 3) ; but those who trust Jeho- 
vah implicit] v need not and will not fear. (Psa. 27:1; 
118:6; Zeph. 3:16; Heb. 13? 6; 1 John 4: IT, 181 There- 
fore the remnant in this day of judgment are bold in de- 
claring the message of the kingdom and will continue so to 
da regardless of all opposition. 

Prior to 1918 Jehovah caused the truth then due to ba 
proclaimed on earth, and "Christendom" had an oppor- 
tunity to know about the kingdom of ftod under Christ. 
While that work, the "Elijah work", us it is called, was 
thus being done, and particularly in the year 191B, the 
Lord's faithful people were ill-treated by "Christendom". 
Among God's covenant people in thai time there were the 
"elective elders" who, like the "rich man" t failed to serve 
God, and because of their unfaithfulness it beeamc neces- 
sary to clear these out that the approved ones might be 
prepared for Hod's purposes. "For thus Keith the Lord of 
hosts, As I thought to punish you, when your fathers pro- 

voked me to wrath, saith the Lord of hosts, and I repented 
not," fZceh. 8:14) The Lord did not repent, but has done 
the purpling work that he may have a company who will 
"offer unto [him] an offering in righteousness". (Mai. 
3: 1-i; Ezek. 20:35-38) Judgment must begin at the house 
of God and continue until God's sanctuary is cleansed, and 
then lawlessness against God shall have an end,— I Pet, 
4:17; Ezek. 21 : 34, 25. 

Prom and after 3922, and more particularly since 1926, 
Jehovah has prospered his "faithful servant" class. Jehovah 
foretold this in these words (Keen. 8: IS) : "So again have 
1 thought in these days to do well unto Jerusalem, and to 
the house of Judah; fear ye not." This Jehovah has done 
because it is the time for the vindication of his name, and 
not because the remnant deserved the blessing- (Ezek. 
36 : 21-23) The "man child" having been born fay his 
"woman" in A.P. 1914 (Rev. 12:1-5), meaning the King- 
dom having begun there, it is the "set time" to favor 2ion, 
his capital organization, and to honor and vindicate Jeho- 
vah's name. This he will do by his kingdom under Christ. 
—Pa 102: 13; Isa. 63:4. 



The company of Jehovah's mitnCKHcs at Rio etc Janeiro rurally

D£ah Brother RnmEEnonij: 

At the united service meeting of [he Greater Glasgow company 
of Jehovah's witnesses it wu unanimously ngreed that we send to 
yon once again nn expression of our fervent love in the Iiord, and 
our deep appreciation of the way in which Jehovah has Jed and 
Messed us through you in the year which has just passed. 

Though the war clouds eontinae to hang ominously over as, 
and many of the brothers are likely to be haled before tribunals 
•e conscientious objectors shortly, yet the wnl and loyally of ait 
the brethren, has not diminished, but rather increased, aa a result 

of these conditions. We find the people as a whole more ifceptiv-e 
of the message and our numbers continue to increase, What with 
this *nil the fact that, though the nation is at war, w^ are still 
able in continue almost unrestricted in our privileges of service, 
no realize that, f hough there is indeed on the eaj-ih "distress of 
nations with perplexity", yet wc can now 'look up sad lift up our 
bunds and rejoice, for our redemption drawetb mgh'. 

We appreciate that Armageddon is very near, and we are de- 
termined by Jehovah's grace to stand shoulder to shoulder with 
you and to continue steadfastly in his service right to the end- 

We render thanks to the Lord for the rich feasts of fat things 
cDminfr to us through the columns of The Watchtower; and we 
pray that he amy continue to bless you as you keep pressing the 
battle to the gates of the enemy.

Now that government "upon his shoulder" is functioning ! 
(Isaiah 9:6,7) Now the publishers of the Kingdom joy- 
fully and incessantly announce God's judgments already 
written in the Bible against the "man of sin", against 
"Christendom", her rulers, and chief men, and against all 
who have defamed the name of the Most High. Fearlessly 

and clearly they sound the warning of the great tribula- 
tion just ahead for all that dwell upon the face of the whole 
earth, and they make known how some may be shielded and 
protected and carried through that greatest of all calamities, 
in which the power of the Eternal One shall be shown m 
"his strange act". 

Oh sing unto Jehovah a new song: sing unto Jehovah, all the 
earth. Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice . . . before 
Jehovah; . . . for he cometh to judge the earth: he will judge 
the world with righteousness, and the peoples with his truth. 
—Psalm 96:1,11,13, A.B.V, 



Dt-AR Brethren: 

We, the Jefferson [Wis.] company of Jehovah's witnesses, 
acknowledge Jehovah God as the great Theoerat, that his organ- 
ization is a theocracy, and that Christ Jesus is the Chief Officer 

We are in full accord with Jehovah's Word, the Bible, and 
his explanation of the Bible which he is now revealing to us 
through his earthly channel, the Watch Tower, and realize it is 
our duty as his chosen servants to work together shoulder to 
shoulder m proclaiming his Kingdom message. 

We resolve to let nothing hinder us in carrying out Jehovah's 
will, and will work together in unity under the direction of the 
Theocracy, with the hope and full assurance that we shall have 
Jehovah's approval and blessing.

We of the Waupun [Wis.] company do hereby declare that we 
are wholly devoted to Jehovah's Theocracy under Christ ; 

That we absolutely refuse to consider the malicious letters 
which those of the "evil servant" class have been circulating among 
the brethren, seeking self-justification and sympathy; 

That we will not co-operate with that class who oppose Jeho- 
vah's Theocratic Government under Christ. 


Dear Brother Rutherford and All the Bethel Family; 

llawng read the article "Information" m the October 15 issue 
of The Watchtower, we wish to express our disapproval of the 
things done by R. Moyle against the family at Bethel. 

We do not know the contents of the letter written by Mr. 
Moyle, nor do we care to know. It is enough for us that our great 
God. Jehovah, is pleased to use you all in his service, and is 
showering you with blessings. 

We believe that the Society is the channel the Lord is using 
to carry on his Kingdom interests in earth at this time, and that 
our brethren at Bethel are being spent in that service. 

We never listen to accusations against Brother Rutherford or 
any faithful servant of God who is performing his given service 
in the Theocratic Government ; for to do so would be disobedient 

and dangerous to ourselves. All of the faithful, having been 
warned, would do well to be on their guard against the wiles of 
those "wild waves of the sea, . . . for whom the blackness of 
darkness hath been reserved for ever". (Jude 13, A R V ) These 
do not discern the body, but, as Jude says, 'show respect of persona 
for the sake of advantage.' — Jude 16, 

Owing to force of circumstances while I am still 'tent making' 
we are seldom where there is a. company of servants We know that 
the faithful all over the earth will hasten to stand openly on the 
side of our brethren at Bethel, and against all wicked accusers 
We, also, wish to be found fighting shoulder to shoulder with our 
brethren, and to let it be known that, by Jehovah's grace, we shall 
ever be found standing for Jehovah God, his King Christ Jesus, 
the Kingdom, and aU who faithfully serve that kingdom. 
With much love, we remain, 

Your brethren and fellow locusts, 

Granville E Fiske, 
Grace Fiskjs, Pioneer, 


Dear Brother Rutherford: 

The brethren of the North unit [of Chicago, III , company] 
of Jehovah's witnesses have unanimously adopted the following 
resolution : 

"We, Jehovah's witnesses of the North unit will be on the 
alert for any information from the enemy m relation to the things 
Brother Howlett brought to our attention Sunday, October 1, 1039, 
relative to 0. R. Moyle. We are one hundred percent back of you 
in the Theocratic Government, pushing forward to publish the 
Kingdom as commanded by the Almighty God through his Vuidi- 
cator King Christ Jesus." 


We, the Racine [Wis.] company of Jehovah's witnesses, wish 
to express our disapproval of the actions of R Moyle against 
the Society and its president. We do hereby acknowledge the 
Watch Tower Society as the visible channel of Jehovah's Theo- 
cratic Government, and we are in complete harmony with the 
action taken by the board of directors. We are thankful to the 
Society for sending Brother Howlett m our midst to explain Lie 
matter, which he did so well. 

(Continued from page 194) 
dates will be July 24-26 inclusive. Announcement is made in ad- 
vance m order that Jehovah's witnesses and all people of good will 
may have ample opportunity to arrange their affairs so as to be 
at Columbus, Ohio, or other cities tied in by direct wire communi- 
cation and loud-speaker equipment. By the Lord's grace, the 
president of the Watchtower Society will be in attendance in per- 
son at the key assembly in Columbus. For further details see The 
Watchtower, issues of June 1 and 15, 1940.

report on the vitally important speech on "Integrity" by Judge 
Rutherford, and by its untrue personal slaps at the speaker. A 
swift and deserved retribution and judgment came : at five o'clock 
this evening there wa9 released for circulation among the people of 
St. Louis the printed copy of what the speaker actually did say 
m his speech. The August 15 issue of The Watchtower contained 
the full text of the speech, and now thousands of copies of this 
issue were made available to magazine distributors to put out im- 
mediately. This unexpected chance to return the fire of the enemy 
thrilled God's people, and forth they went with this new ammu- 
nition with boiling zeal, and shortly the entire supply of all 
magazines was exhausted. The pro-Catholic Globe Democrat of 
St Louis spoke of the speaker (a native Missourian) as a "tall, 
balding, wing-collared Californian", much after the manner as 
when the prophet Elisba was on his way to Bethel and many 
religious youths came out and mocked, saying, "Go up, thou bald 
head; go up, thou bald head!" and Elisha turned and uttered 
Jehovah's judgment upon them and two she-bears from the forest 
came and 'tore' 42 of them. Doubtless by the time this assembly 
closed the public press felt it had been torn by the claws of some- 
thing far worse than two literal bears and that a "curse" rested 
upon it for its stubborn course of willful, lying mockery against 
the Elisha work today and those doing it. 

Attendances at the sessions increased, as the assembly in- 
creased to 70,000 attendants, the number originally published as 
expected; and thousands more were yet en route to St. Louis. 
Much profit was derived from today hearing capable speakers 
deal with such subjects as "Magazine Route Work", "Magazine 
Street Witnessing," "Courage," "Jael's Experiences," "Zone As- 
sembly and Its Purpose," and "Covenant Obligations". These 
speeches stressed Jehovah's Theocratic organization and its struc- 
ture, and the work it is now commissioned to do, and the effective 
ways of getting the witness done; also the requirement to obey 
organization arrangements, and our obligations as consecrated 
Christians to fulfill our side of the covenant with Jehovah God 
as his faithful and true witnesses, if we would gam life and have 
part in the vindication of his greatly reproached holy name. 


This was notably Pioneers' Day. Due to Jehovah's loving pro- 
vision through his visible organization more than 5,000 pioneers 
from America and other lands were enabled to come and share 
the glorious Kingdom service at St. Louis. All registered as such 
on arrival, and the Society provided free meals for them and also 
rooming accommodations for as many as needed it This supports 
that the Society is in very truth a "charitable" organization even 
according to the definition of the worldly law. There was a booth 
in the Arena corridor marked "New Pioneers", and up till this 
point 300 new pioneers had already signed up at this assembly, 
one being a seven-year-old. (Before the convention closed more 
than 700 had signed up.) The present pioneer band includes some 
men 86 years old and some women 77 years old, and some children 
nine years of age. 'According to the faith of all such be it unto 
them,' as Jesus said. 

At 3 p m. all the pioneers had assembled in the main audi- 
torium in front of the speakers' platform, their identification 
cards admitting them. The rest of The Arena was all packed out 
again, by other publishers. Dwelling on the subject "Pioneer's 
Place in the Organization" a speaker emphasized that "the time 
of independent isolation of the pioneers is past" and now they 
must faithfully co-operate also with the regional and zone serv- 
ants and with the organized companies with which many are 
associated. Another speaker considered "Pioneer Requirements" 
and stressed the need for meeting the "hours" requirement to 
remain permanently m the work, and that the back-calls made 
by pioneers should be increased. In the United States only 6,5 per- 
cent of all publishers were pioneers, whereas in the British Isles 
11 percent are such, and hence this country could well increase 

its percentage of pioneers. In this connection the speaker read a 
letter from a St. Louis radio announcer setting out the frank 
statement by a prominent religious lecturer from Britain concern- 
ing the stabilizing and heartening effect the fearless witness work 
of Jehovah's witnesses has upon the morale of the British people 
during this war, and also concerning their faithfulness in con- 
centration camps in Germany, to the dismay of the Nazis. (In- 
cidentally, copies of this letter were thereafter released to the 
press for publication, but not a single newspaper dared print 
such favorable publicity concerning Jehovah's servants.) 

Then Judge Rutherford greeted the pioneers. He expressed 
it as a privilege to greet such fighters for The Theocracy, and 
that the activities of such a band as these must "make some of the 
'old woman' mighty sick". Pioneering men fled from Europe to 
seek and establish here freedom of speech, of assembly and of 
worship of God; they never imagined that such freedom would 
ever be hampered here as it is today in this land. This is all traced 
to religion and its allies. When these have finally closed down on 
our work here and cry "Peace and safety '" then a mighty ex- 
plosion will occur and blow off the lid. "You pioneers are in this 
witness work not for selfish aggrandizement, nor to make a name 
for yourselves, but for the Lord's name's sake." Isaiah 62 . 10 
includes a command for the pioneers: "Go through the gates!" 
The gates are open for all now, particularly the Lord's "other 
sheep". "Prepare ye the way of the people!" This it is your priv- 
ilege to do by telling them the truth. "Cast up the highway!" That 
is, ,to walk in the Lord's way of righteousness. "Gather out the 
stones!" These are religion's stumblingstones ; gather them out 
by taking to the people God's Word, "Lift up a standard for tie 
people!" What standard? Not Hitler's swastika! The flag of 
America is a dignified and beautiful symbol, whose real meaning 
is "freedom" and "rights" of free men. Demonized flag-waveis 
try to force you to bow down thereto in violation of God's law. 
Such ones are the first to violate the laws of the United States. 
**I say to the people of Missouri, where I have fought for the 
principles of democracy, because I believed them right . 'Jehovah's 
witnesses have the highest respect for what the flag represents, 
but, by God's grace, they will not bow down to anything !' " 
(Applause) You pioneers are real liberators of the people. When 
you go out from this convention you will have lots of scoffing, 
reproaches and ridicule, but not by honest men and women. Re- 
joice in tribulation. Don't think you are the whole thing because 
you are a pioneer. Keep on encouraging those who love the Lord 
"Now GET bust!" 

Immediately following, the assembly chairman briefly re- 
viewed the legal aspect, and the legal battles the enemy had thrust 
on God's faithful witnesses, and that the Society had directed 
them to fight to the last ditch, and that at the greatest expense they 
had done so and gone up to the Supreme Court of the nation, and 
the Socixtt was fighting for the things for which the flag stands, 
and now many legal victories had been won. In Germany hundreds 
of legal cases were won before the witness work was closed down 
there ; likewise it may be here in America. Then a great outburst 
of gladness broke at the chairman's announcement that Judge 
Rutherford had caused to be published a new 32-page booklet 
entitled "Jehovah's Servants Defended", setting out the judicial 
decisions of high courts in cases we had fought and won ; he now 
authorized the release of the booklet and a copy to be given free 
to each one there. This gracious provision and gift put a new 
weapon in the hands of the battling witnesses for use in meeting 
the enemy both in the field and before the tribunals 

This same day a sharp judgment of the great Lawgiver against 
the "evil servant" class (Matt. 24:48-51) was expressed at the 
beginning of the afternoon's sessions. An ex-army officer of the 
United States appeared on the platform and asked and was grant- 
ed the privilege to present a Resolution concerning one Moyle. 
Said lawyer proved unfaithful to his position of trust in the 
Lord's organization, slandered and abused the Bethel family at 



Brooklyn, N. Y, 

Brooklyn, quit his post of duty, and thereafter sued the Society 
and its board of directors and others for $100,000 for libel be- 
cause the facts were published in The Watchtowet for the pro- 
tection of Jehovah's witnesses throughout the land. The Resolu- 
tion condemned such course of action and such recourse to worldly 
courts as unscriptural, unwarranted and unjustified. Put to a 
vote, the Resolution was adopted with a unanimous "Aye" by the 
vast assembly of more than 75,000. Thereafter copies of the 
Resolution were given free to all, to take home with them. 

The afternoon's program concluded with a stirring speech by 
one from Canada, where the ranking prelate of the greatest reli- 
gious foreign power has dictatorially caused Jehovah's own or- 
ganization to be declared "illegal" and forbidden, and its adherents 
to be imprisoned; but where true Christians continue to obey 
God's commands rather than man's, and of whom 2,000 were then 
in attendance at the assembly and rejoicing. An example of a well- 
ordered Theocratic service meeting, presented by four young 
workers from headquarters, and a discourse on "Ehud and His 
Dagger" closed another blessed day. 


The event everywhere advertised for today and eagerly awaited 
was the delivery of the public address by the president on "Com- 
fort All That Mourn", at 3 p.m The great publicity campaign 
had gone overt Now 105,000 persons jammed The Arena and 
auxiliary buildings, the grounds all around, and the eleven-mile- 
distant trailer camp. A private telephone line connected .The 
Arena platform with the Watch Tower headquarters at Brook- 
lyn and the administration building of radio station WBBR on 
Staten Island, N. Y., where other audiences assembled. Both 
when the speaker ascended the platform and when the chairman 
presented him to speak the audience gave him a great ovation. 
The orchestra, now augmented to 126 instruments, rendered a 
selection suitable to this significant hour. Then the speech began. 
The public-address system was working at its best, and every- 
one in every location could hear well. The speaker's voice was m 
excellent condition, and filled with the quality of comfort. All 
hung on his words in rapt attention, only to break out in repeated 
applause, on nineteen occasions. 

Referring to the cause of mourning, the speaker stated: "It 
is the truth that will make the people free from fear and mourn- 
ing. Receiving the truth, their joy at once begins, and that's why 
100,000 on these grounds today are all smiles!" (Applause) A 
reference to the "Axis Powers" and then to Daniel chapter eleven 
and "the king of the north" and "the king of the south" quickened 
the audience into unusual alertness. Both "kings" are npt men, 
but world ruling powers 1 Then the scales fell from the listeners' 
eyes as Judge Rutherford identified the 'northern king' as the 
ruling power which is totalitarian and represented in the Axis 
combine and opposing Jehovah'9 Theocracy and its servants ; and 
the 'southern king' as the world ruling power which rules and 
claims the right to rule the nations in the name of Democracy, 
and is represented in the British Commonwealth of Nations and 
supporting nations, but which also does not support The Theo- 
cratic Government. A brief survey of Daniel 11 : 27-45 followed, 
and ended all too soon. But when he added, "The Watchtower 
will publish the same, that the people of good-will may be en- 
lightened," there was a joyous expression of satisfaction. More 
applause, later, when he commented, on Daniel 11 : 45, "that will 
mean the end of the Axis Powers, including Nazism, Fascism, 
and Romanism!" 

Concerning the good news of The Theocracy he exclaimed: 
"Thank God that the message does not proceed from any man 1" 
(Applause) The fulfillment today of Daniel's prophecy and its 
understanding mean the "end of the days" is here, and "which 
is proof that we may confidently expect Daniel the prophet of 
God to soon stand amongst the peoples on this earth and many 
will see him and rejoice". (Applause) The audience thrilled again 

into applause when he added that the Lord's people "are looking 
for those faithful men of God and they will not be surprised 
when they come". He then proceeded to detail the blessings of 
God's kingdom, and interrupted to cry out, "I challenge any gov- 
ernment under the sun to point out any hope that they hold out!" 
(Applause) More blessings described, and he turned his words 
to his auditors: "And it is the duty and privilege of the peo- 
ple of this convention to tell the people of Missouri and of all 
parts of the land about The Theocracy." (Applause) Next a glo- 
rious description of "the Holy City"; then "no more death!" 
(Rev. 21 : 1-4) As to our period of transition from the wicked 
to the Theocratic rule, "soon the combined elements of wicked- 
ness will put forth their supreme effort in their final endeavor 
to destroy all who support The Theocracy, and they will cry 
'Peace and safety!' because they have all of Jehovah's witnesses 
in the jug I" (Applause, with smiles of understanding) "They 
shall fail, and none shall help them, because God has decreed it 
so." Then came words of hope concerning the Armageddon sur- 
vivors, followed by a contrast between the wicked and the wise: 
"They that be wise will choose to serve the King of glory and 
receive the blessings of everlasting life." 

With the words, "And now, my good friends, I am sure you 
will want to join in sending a message of comfort," Judge Ruther- 
ford read a prepared "message", addressed "To all persons of 
good-will toward Jehovah and His King, Christ Jesus". Con- 
cluding it, he put the question, "If you believe that this is the 
message of loving-kindness that you wish to send to the people, 
say Aye!" There was a unanimous "Aye!" seconded by great 
applause. During the speech Judge Rutherford appealed "to the 
people of my native state [Missouri] to calmly look into the 
Bible for the hope of eternal life" (Applause), and now he ex- 
pressed it as a "great privilege to speak to the children of the 
people of this state", and he asked : "What do world powers hold 
forth? Nothing! What does The Theocracy hold forth f" Every- 
thing worth-while! 

The speech ended and Judge Rutherford retired, but a further 
joy awaited. Before the speech the chairman announced that, 
anticipating the great demand for it in print, the speech had 
been published and copies were on hand. Now it was announced 
that ten copies of the new booklet "Comfort AH That Mourn" 
would be given free to each one there to distribute at once to the 
people of St. Louis, and without contribution; but any recipient 
so desiring and asking might contribute whatsoever he felt in- 
clined. The response to this opportunity after such a public ad- 
dress was electrical, and parties and individuals scattered to all 
parts, the slums, the sidewalks fronting the "cockatrice hatchery" 
the Vatican maintains in St. Louis, and other locations conven- 
ient for the quick-distribution work. 

Other presentations on the day's program were "Advice for 
Kingdom Publishers" by the Society's legal representative, and 
also discourses on "Transition" and on "Theocracy", all which 
were received with much aid and benefit. The supply shipped of 
the new booklet "Comfort All That Mourn" was quickly exhausted 
and distributed far and wide, and thus comfort from above was 
spread to other hundreds of thousands. 


On an occasion last spring Judge Rutherford stated at head- 
quarters in Brooklyn, "This is the day of the children." Today 
at the assembly marked the time even as such. The full significance 
of what Almighty God here caused to come to pass on this day 
will only be realized later under His revelation. He knows the 
end from the start. 

Early this morning, at seven-thirty o'clock, there was an as- 
sembly of tile candidates to hear the discourse on "Baptism", 
prior to their immersion ; where 3,903 presented themselves there- 
for, of whom 1,357 were children, and out of almost "all nations, 
kindreds, people and tongues". Pools had been contracted for in
