have, been settled completely as the re
sult of a statement made in Boston by
Harvey D. Gibson, general manager of
tne American Red Cross, that no
moneys from the Red Cross funds
should be appropriated and that funds
previously expended for this purpose
by the Red Cross would be returned to
the general fund by a member who had
donated a sum especially for medical
research work.
Mr. Gibson makes It very plain that
the Red Cross does not take a stand
for or against vivisection, and that such
experimentation as Army surgeons re
quire will still go on, but not with Red
Cross money.
Monitor Praise Actio.
As a result of Mr. Gibson's statement,
the Christian Science Monitor says edi
torially: The Red Cross has done the right thins,
and haa done it frankly. In other words.
tney nave arranged that the money appro
prlated for medical research and vivisection
shall be returned to the general fund
that the stigma of having used the funds
and the energy of the greatest organization
of its kind for the furtherance of deeds of
mercy in war shall be blotted out.
At the same time announcement has
just been made from New York that the
suit against the American Red Cross to
enjoin it from using any of its funds
for vivisection purposes has been with
drawn. This suit was brought by ten
Christian Scientists.
Mr. Gibson's statement covering the
situation follows;
Considerable pnblle and private criticism
has been made of an appropriation of the
Bed Cross in August, 1917, for medical re
search work in France, because partly In
volved In this work is experimentation upon
living animals for the purpose of finding
prevent on and remedies for new and strange
soldiers diseases. This appropriation was
made at a time of emergency upon recom
mendation of Army- medical officers and a
number of the best scfentisis of the country.
Prompt action waa necessary.
Use of Money Deemed Proper.
It seemed to officers of the Red Cross at
the time that use of money in this way was
proper from the Red Cross point of view, fot
it would be difficult to imagine any more
imperative duty upon the Red Cross than to
seek for every means of prevention and rem
edy for sickness of soldiers. The Red Cross
did not. as haa been stated, appropriate this
money for abstract medical research and ex
perimentation. It was to be used for the
direct and immediate purpose of finding;
ways to prevent or cure wound's and sickness
of American soldiers.
It develops, however, that there are large
numbers of earnest Red Cross members who
have sincere convictions against the use of
animals for discovery of remedies for sickness.
Realizing the situation, an individual has
come forward and has offered- to supply the
money necessary for this work so that none
shall be taken from the general funds of the
Red Cross. This fund provided will also be
used to reimburse the Red Cross general
fund for any expenditure in connection
therewith in the past.
-The War Council has decided to accept
this offer without in any way taking the ;
position either for or against the Question in j
controversy, but because they do not wish j
their acta to be considered to be in conflict
with the- sincere convictions of Red Cross

Of the Connell of the Twelve. Cbarrh of

Salt Lake City, Itib,
In a revelation to Abraham the Tort
made known the existence of spirits
appointed to take bodies upon the earth.
These spirits wefa designated as tho
Intellla-eneea that were oraanlied be.
fore the world wai"i and elsewhere In
the same record spirits are called in
telligences. (See Pearl of Great Price,
Abraham 3:21,22).
This usage, of the term has gained a
place in modern English, as lexicog
raphers agree. The Standard Diction
ary gives us the following as one of
tne specific definitions of intelllgent-ei
"An intelligent being, especially a spirit
not embodied; as the "Intellia-encee of
the unseen world; the Supreme Intelligence."
The word is current as connoting:
(1) the mental capacity to know and
understand: (2) knowledge itself, or
the thing that Is known and under
stood; and (3) the person who knows
and understands. Beside these there
are other minor usages.
In the revelation above cited the
Lord impressed upon His ancient
prophet and seer the fact that some of
the spirits were more intelligent than
others; and then proclaimed His own
Divine supremacy by the declaration:
! am the Lord thy God, I am more in
telligent than they all. ... I rule In
the heavena above, and In the earth
beneath. In all wisdom and prudence.
over ail the Intelligences thine eyea
have seen from the beginning. I came
clown In the beginning la the mldet of
all the intelligences thou haet seen."
In such wise did God make known
anciently the power by virtue of which
He is supreme over all the intelligences
that exist the fact that He is more
intelligent than any and all others. In
the heavens as upon the earth the
aphorism holds good that Knowledge
In Power, providing that by "knowl
edge" we mean application, and not
merely mental possession, of truth. In
a revelation through Joseph Smith the
prophet given in 1833, the character of
Divine authority and power Is thua
sublimely summarized; "The Glory of
God ia Intelligence." (Doctrine & Cove
nants 93:36).
The context of the passage showa
that the intelligence therein referred
to as an attribute of Deity, is spiritual
light and truth; and that man may at
tain to a measure of this exalting light
and truth is thus made certain: "He
that keepeth His commandments re.
eelveth trntn and light, until he in glo
rifled In truth nnri knoweth all thlnga.
. . . Intelligence, or the light of truth,
waa not created or made, neither ladeed
can be. All truth Is Independent In that
sphere In which God haa placed It, tv
act for itself, aa all Intelligence also."
The antithesis of light and truth ia
darkness and falsehood; the former is
summarized as righteousness, the latter
as evil. Reverting to the figure of mor
tality as a school for embodied spirits.
we must admit that every pupil who ig
nores or rejects the truth as presented
to him through the revealed word and
his own experience is culpably respon
sible for his ignorance.
Not all knowledge Is of equal worth.
The knowledge that constitutes the wis
dom of the heavens Is all embraced in
the Gospel as taught by Jesus Christ;
and wilful ignorance of this, the high
est type of knowledge, will relegate
Its victim to the inferior order of in
telligences. Another latter-day Scrip
ture may be cited as an inspired gen
eralization embodying an eternal truth
relating to our subject: "It ia Impossi
ble for a man to be saved in Ignorance."
(Doctrine and Covenants, 131:6).
Can it be otherwise? If a man be
ignorant of the terms on which sal-
vation is predicated he is unable to
comply therewith, and consequently
fails to attain what otherwise might
have been his eternal gain. The igno
rance that thus condemns is responsi
ble ignorance, involving wilful and
sinful neglect. Lack of the saving
knowledge that one has had no oppor
tunity to acquire is but a temporary
deficiency: for Eternal Justice pro
vides means of education beyond the
grave. Every one of us will be Judged
according to the measure of light and
truth we have had opportunity to ac
quire. Even the untutored heathen
who has lived up to his highest concep
tions of right shall find means of pro- -gression.
Part of the blessing to fol
low the second advent of Christ Is thus
stated: "And then shall the heathen
nations be redeemed, and they that
knew no law shall have part in the first
resurrection l and it ahnll be tolerable
for them." (45:54).
The intelligence that saves comprises
knowing and doing what is required by
the Gospel of Christ; and such Intelli
gence will endure beyond death. "What
ever principle of intelligence we attain
unto In this life. It will rise with ns
In the resurrection. And If a person,
gains more knowledge and Intelligence
In this life through hla diligence nnd
obedience than another, he will have)
mo much the advantage In the world to
come." (130:18, 19)
Intelligence as to Godly things, which
are summarized in the Gospel of Jesus
Christ, leads to an ever increasing un
derstanding and comprehension of God
Himself, and this is - knowledge su
nreme: for as the praying Christ af
firmed: "This in life eternal, that they
might know thee the only true God.
and Jesus Christ, whom thoa hnet sent."
(John 17:3).
