Charles H. Castner, president of the
Oregon Federation of Women's Clubs
and general chairman of the women's
committee of the Council of National
Defense for Oregon. Mrs. Castner wel
comed the new city federation and con
gratulated the women upon their good
judgment and their leader. Then she
turned to the ringing message of the
day, the patriotic call to all women of
the state to arouse and work, to pull
together, to live up to the rules of the
food administration in all particulars
and to get others to do likewise.
Women Asked to Sacrifice.
"We must, ladies, we must; for every
meal follow the instruction and use our
influence to get our neighbors to do
likewise," urged Mrs. Castner. "There
still are in every neighborhood some
few women who don't read the papers
or know what is going on. I call upon
you to grasp the seriousness of the

By Dr. JAMES E. TALMAGK
Of the Council of tbe Twelve, Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Salnta)
Salt Lake City, Utah. -
Do you believe that "Whatever is is
right"? I do not; I cannot believe it.
If right means accordance with the
will of God surely there is much wrong
In the world.
But. it is argued, God is omnipotent,
and therefore has power to direct all
things as He wills. Granted. Neverthe
less both scriptural and secular his
tory, as also the turbulent course of
current events combine to show that
transgression of LHvine law is as old as
the race, and as persistent.
God bas given to man agency and
liberty of action. It is the will of God
that this birthright of human
freedom shall be inviolate; but it is
contrary to the Divine intent that man
shall abuse his agency, and misconstrue
hia liberty as license for wrongdoing.
And as with the individual, so with
communities and nations.
In the days of Samuel the Israelites
clamored for a king. They were tired
of the' theo-democracy under which
they had prospered, and wanted to be
"like all nations." a monarchy, with a
king wearing a crown, swaying a scep
ter, and sitting enthroned in state.
Read I Samuel, chapter 8. This condi
tion had been foreseen and foretold;
nevertheless tha people erred in their
demand, and the Lord yielded under
protest. There is real pathos in His
words to tbe prophet: Tbey have aot
rejected thee, but they have rejected
me, that I should not relga over them."
They had their king, and a long suc
cession of nonarchs, many of whom
proved to be, veritable tyrants. ft.nd the
people groaned ender the oppression
against which they had been tore
warned. In the course of Israel's troubled
journey from Egypt where they had
dwelt as in a "house of bondage" to
Canaan the land of their promised in
heritance, the Lord gave them many
laws and established ordinances . for
their government in both temporal and
spiritual affairs. He portrayed for their
encouragement promised blessings of
Inestimable worth, predicated upon
their obedience to the laws of right
eousness, and their allegiance to Him
self as God and King. In contrast He
described in harrowing; detail the stata
of abject misfortune and blighting suf
fering into which they would fall if
they departed from the path of recti
tude and followed the sinful practises
of the heathen. As the sacred record
progresses, the fact is made plain that
Israel had chosen the evil alternative,
forfeiting the blessings and reaping the
Was it the will of God, think you,
that Israel should sin? Can it be the
Divine will that any man ,or nation
shall come under the thrall of Iniquity?
Is it the will of God that man shall
make of himself a drunken sot. with
reason dethroned, and naught but his
brutish passions alert? Or that man
shall oppress his fellows by unright
eous dominion, robbing them of the
rights upon which God Himself refuses
to infringe, even though those rights
be grossly misused? Is it the will of
God that woman's virtue shall be bar
tered for gold, and that vice shall stalk;
unchallenged through the world?
To hold that these abominations ac
cord with the Divine will ls to make
God responsible for them, and there
fore the author of sin. The very thought
God's'omnipotence is manifest in the
over-ruling by which eventual good re
sults from Immediate evil. The crime of
the ages, consummated on the slopes of
Calvary, has proved to be the means
of salvation to the world; but the aw
ful guilt of the betrayal, of the false
testimony and the crucifixion is no
whit diminished by the glorious out
come. Through the successive captivities
and the general dispersion of Israel,
which came as the consequence of in-
fidelity to Jehovah, a knowledge of
the true and living God has been dif
fused among -even benighted and idol
atrous peoples. And thus the nation a
calamity has been made to serve Di
I cannot look upon the ingntiut
carnage and Inhuman atrocities of the
world war as a manifestation of the
direct will of God. This dreadful con
flict was brought on through lust of
Dower and greed of gain. It sprang
from an unholy determination to rob
mankind of God-given rights, and to
subject the race to autocratic . dom
ination. It is a repetition of the issue
at stake In the primeval struggle, when
Michael, the champion of free agency,
led his hosts against Lucifer's myrmi
dons, who sought to ruie by might.
(Sea Rev. 12:7-9). Read the record giv
en to the world through modern revelation:
"And. L the Lord God, spake unto
Moses. saying:--That Satan, whom thou
hast commanded in the name of mine
Onlv Begotten, is the same which was
from the beginning, and he came before
me, saying Behold, here am i, send
me, 1 will De tny son, ana i win re
deem all mankind, that one soul shall
not be lost, and surely I will do it;
wherefore give me. thine honor. But,
behold, my Beloved Son, which was my
Beloved and Chosen from the begin
ning, said unto me Father, thy will bo
done, and the glory be thine forever.
Wherefore, because that Satan rebelled
against me, and sought to destroy tha
agency of man, which I, the Lord God,
had given him, and also, tnat l snouia
give unto him mine own power; by the
power of mine Only Begotten, I caused
that he should be cast down; And ho
became Satan, yea, even the devil, the
father of all lies, to deceive and to
blind men, and to lead them captive
at his will, even as many as wouia
not hearken unto my voice." (Pearl of
Great Price, Moses "4:1-4).
In the free exercise of agency and
the rieht of decision our nation has
deliberately and solemnly entered the
present conflict in the interests or
righteousness. Out of the seething car
nage shall crystallize the lustrous gems
of peace and the liberties ot men; ana
thus enriched the world shall be the
more prepared to receive the Christ,
whose coming is near, and whose do
minion shall be holy, whereby the
rights of all men shall be respected
God's power and glory shall be man
ifest in eventual victory for the right,
and in the good that shall spring from
present evil. But in the eternal ac
counting, responsibility for the crime
whereby thiB war was precipitated
shall weigh upon the man, men, nation
or nations, who did the devil's bidding
in the attempt to enthrall mankind.
Thus the hand of God is potent in the
furtherance of right: and though His
will be violated and Hts'COmmandments
transgressed, evil shall be followed by
good. Divine displeasure is directed
against all 'who confess not Mis hand
In all thing's, and obey not His com
mandment." (Doctrine & Covenants
